Your Concrete Work
should be clone by experienced contractors. You have
seen many bad concrete jobs cracked and crumbling
because of a lack of knowing how to mix cement
and the quality of the material.
We have turned out some of the best concrete jobs
ever done on the Peninsula. We guarantee our work
in every particular. We have built concrete houses
out of blocks and stucco. We have made perfectly
dry cellars, smooth and solid concrete pavements ancl
macadam roads. In fact our business is

MAKING THEM
AMERICANS i
How few of us realize the importance of
making over the foreigner —of implanting
American ideals, ideas and common sense in
place of socialistic and maybe anarchistic theories. It
means a lot to every American citizen. This work
and many other interesting activities of the Department
of Labor are discussed in the twelfth issue of the senes
of beautifully illustrated booklets on Our Government
which we have been distributing to representative
citizens of this community.
If by any chance you have failed to receive regularly
your copies of this series that has befen so favorably
commented upon, visit us today and from the limited
supply on hand we will gladly complete your set.

Lash And Bail And Chain Abandoned.
Annapolis.
Tile whipping pot and the light ol
the warden to appl> lashes up to the
number ol 13. along with the use o!
the old hall and chain, ail of which
were parts of the old rules, have been
abolished at (be Maryland Penitentiary
and House ol Correction by the Hua.d
ol Prison Control.
The new rules aud regulations, just
drafted and made public by Chairman
Ogle Marbury, supersede th* regula
tions which, while not always applied,
have been in force since they were
drafted by the board of directors in
The chances in regulations were
determined upon folowmg the ex
posure of brutality to prisoners iu the
Penitentiary last fall. In drafting
them the Prison Hoard abolished in
their entirety tie old rules.
One of the noticeable advances, de
termined upon with a view to doing
nothing that would tend 10 cause loss
ol self-respect among the prisoners,
but would rather encourag* self-re
spilt is the dropping of the term
“convict." which was used in tie- c>!d
regulations. Straight thiough tie new
rule- the prisoners are referred to a
"tie- inmates,"
To prevent th* board being kept ;n
ignorance of any mistreatment ol an
inmate, tie rules compel tie institu
tion physician to report to tie hoard
at once and in writing any injuries to
a prisoner, no matter how sustained
or from what cause
Stringent prohibition against guard
striking, punishing, swearing a - or in
any way mi-treaCng a prisoner is
another provision of tie new rule
following the- investigation of affairs
at ’h- Penitentiary last fall several
guards were di-mis-, d for brutality to
prisoners.
Harding's Roads Stand Commended
Supporters of the policy of the
Maryland Hoad Commission and th*
State Motor Vehicle Commissioner in
opposing unlimited motor licensing
reciprocity between the District o!
Columbia and this State are finding
comfort in the recently announced
intention of President Harding to
withhold federal highway aid irom
.-ta'es which have no comprehensive
system of road maintenance. The
reciprocity light has been waxing
more intense each year since Mary
land nrst launched a State highway
building program. President Harding's
idea for distribution of future federal
road fund-, as outlined in Washing
loti di- patches, is und-1 stood to b<
•lia: f. deral aid lunds will go only to
.-'ate- hav.ng sonic maintenance pro
wsion whereby the users of the high
wav- through th-.r vehtcl. licenses,
maintain tic road- This is the basic
princ.pl. of the Maryland maintenance
system.

on an afternoon or evening in the coin
ing summer, our eyes are destined to
feast upon such enchanting millinery
as that shown above. In this group
of four bats both France and America
are represented by models that vie
with one another. The topmost hat,
from Paris, is made of a fabric having
black cellophane figures on a hciina
, colorei| silk background. Another
French hat approves this long drap
ing at the side, as shown in the round
bat of navy blue crepe with band of
pink crushed roses. Navy blue was
chosen, having black cellophane dec

black luce veiling tin* eyes and Ameri
ca further distinguishes itself in the
all-black satin bat with cellophane
trimming and long lace veil thut fin
