Thomas Laid At Rest In Naval Cemetery FAMILY MEMBERS PRESENT Rrpreseatalives Of The Grief-Stricken Mother Arrived From Georgia This Morning For Funeral Except for gnawing sadness in the I homes of the victims and in the hearts of their friends, the last act in the tragedy of “Old Man’s Hole,” where three young lives were snuffed ! out on Monday, was enacted at the beautiful naval cemetery here this I afternoon, when after the body of Midshipman Grisbey E. Thomas had been lowered into its last resting place the infinitely plaintive notes of ‘taps” floated out over the waters of the Severn and re-echoed back through the wooded shores on the far side. The very waters of the river as they lapped at the stone sea-wall about Cemetery Point moved with an im pressiveness that in its dull grey roll was at variance from the sparkling light of their June-day brilliance when j the happy party bad started on their joyous day’s outing Monday, only to be brought back cold in death. Grouped about the spot where young Thomas will lie in a hero’s grave until there sounds the great reveille were members of his grief stricken famiy, who, in their sorrow, found solace in the knowledge that he had died as American naval officers should die —gladly givng his life to help others. There, too, were the fellow members of the rifle team, which tomorrow will, under the stern usage of a sailor’s life, resume the routine and carry on their efforts to j win glory for their school in the con- | tests at Camp Perry, O. The servicqp over young Thomas’ body were con ducted in the Academy by Post Chap- , lain H. H. Clark, and at their conclu sion the cortege, headed by the Acad emy band and its muffled drums, wended its way to the cemetery under the shadow of the furled and crepe daped flag of the youthful officer’s own country. The family of the young hero was represented by five of his male rela , tives who came to Annapolis on be -1 half of his grief-stricken mother. They arrived from Washigton shortly after noon and were looked after per i sonally during their stay in Annapolis by the acting commandant of midship- I men. Commander R. E. Coontz The pallbearers,all fellow-members , | of the Academy rifle team, were the j ! same as those who officiated during the funeral of Midshipman Nason yesterday. These were Midshipmen | Bushrod Howard, Howard T. Bartlett, Calvin H. Cobb, Oscar C. Badger, George F. Jacobs, Oscar W. Leidel, Lambert Lamberton, and Harold E. Saunders. The hymns “Nearer My God to j Thee” and “Lead Kindly Light” were sung during the services. Almost immediately the battalion of mid i shipmen composed of the new fourth i class, which is the only class now at j the Academy, and on this occasion , was officered by the upper classmen of the rifle squad, came from Bancroft Hall paraded without arms. Outside was grouped the Academy band and two companies of marines, and as the funeral services began with the impressive Episcopal ritual, the Stars and Stripes flying from the station flag pole just outside, was run down to halfmast. The hymns were sung by the fourth class male choir, during the services, | which were conducted bv the Rev. H. H. Clark, post chaplain In a few brief remarks on the occasion, Chap lain Clark paid fitting tribute to the heroism of the two’youths who,uphold ing the traditions of the navy, had gallantly given their lives in|an effort to save the life of another. Immediately following the funeral the members of the rifle team hurried back to quarters, there shifted into their blue uniform and left on an af ternoon car for Wakefield, Mass., there to continue the preliminary practice for the national matches at Camp Perry. O. SMALL NAVAL CLASS Only 104 Out Of 280 Who Took Examina tion Pass Official returns published in Wednes l day’s Capital, from the mental exam inations for admission to the Naval Academy recently show that only 104 of the 280 who took the examinations have passed. • Twenty-four of these are alternates, so that it is impossible for more than eighty to become midshipmen. As some of them undoubtedly will fail physically the actual number will be considerably lower. There are 120 members of the class at pres ent and the number to be admitted is not likely to bring it above 185. This will be the smallest entering class for years. Base Ball On The 4th There will be two games of base ball with the Annapolis baseball team on Monday, July 4, on St. John's I College grounds. One game will be called at 10:30 a. m. and one at 2:30 p. m Both will he by the Annapolis baseball team vs. the Maryland , Meter Company, of Baltimore.

At 8:30 p. m. the bridal party and their attendants, Miss Catherine Mc- Williams, of Baltimore, and Mr. George Popham, of this city, entered the spacious parlor under the sweet strains of the wedding march rendered '< by Mrs. J. Phillips, of Baltimore, and were received at the far end of the room by the Rev. Joseph P.

The parlor was d corated j beautifully with white ribbon stream ers,cut flowers and potted pla' ts. After the ceremony the mr.uy rela- j tives and friends retired to ti e large dining room and partook of ti e many good things spread before t em on large tables. Everyone present ex- j pressed delight, as well as did the i bride and groom. The best man, Mr. Popham. looked his best, and before the close of the j evening many thought that 'ere long Mr. Popham would be looking up a , best man for himself. The bride was the recipient of many handsome and useful presents. ; ln the early morning hours the guests retired to their homes, wishing the happy couple all the blessings that their Creator can bestow. Among those present were: Mr. and Mrs. John F. Popham, parents of the bride; Mr. and Mrs. John T.

Secretary of the Navy Meyer has j decided to experiment with aerial navigation to the extent of trying out. an aerial craft with torpedoboat j power, and incidentally, to assist his friend, Representative Butler Ames, of Massachusetts, develop an inven tion which, it is promised, will revo lutionize aerial navigation. Representative Ames, who has an nounced his determination to make a fight to the finish for the seat of Sen ator Lodge, is not devoting all his time to politics. Immediately upon the adjournment of Congress, Mr. 1 Ames hurried away to his home in , Lowell, Mass., to start his Senatorial ! campaign and also to complete the fin ishing touches to his airship. Before leaving he laid tho whole scheme before Secretary Meyer. He felt he could defeat Senator Lodge, without the aid of 'Mr. Meyer, but he did feel the need of aid of the Navy Department and Government property in exploiting his private invention. Two or three times since the Wright brothers began flying at Fort Meyer nearly two years ago, Lieutenant Sweet and Commander Davis, the aeronautic and wireless experts of the Equipment Bureau, have endeavored to have the department take up the question of aerial navigation in connection with the navy. First, the scheme was rejected by Mr. Metcalf, when secretary, later by Secretary Newberry, and within the past year by Secretary Meyer. Mr. Meyer became greatly interest ed in the Ames machine as described to him in confidence by the inventor statesman. Mr. Ames said the ma chine had been tried out, and he had made two or three short flights in it himself in a quiet field near Lowell. The thing has been so carefully guard ed, however, that little publicity has been given to it. Mr. Ames recently has been devoting his attention to a new type of engine, but he doe 9 not wish to instill it until he is certain as to the practicability of a new type of plane also added. Mr. Ames wished to have a torpedo boat to provide the moter power. The machine is said to be entirely plain and kite type. The success of the 1 machine can be clearly demonstrated, he held, by its being towed by a swiftly moving vessel. With a line several hundred feet long he proposes to seT well up in the air over the boat. ROUND BAY IS SOLD Former Summer Resort To Be Divided 1 Into Building Lots The old resort property known as Round Bay, about seven miles from town, has been sold,through the office of Alexander Brown & Sons, Balti more, to Messrs. Walter C. Piper, N. P. Chapman and E. X. Le Seure. The consideration was $25,000. This is the same company that developed Baltimore Highland. The new owners are members of the Round Bay Beach Company. The tract, which comprises 115 acres, will be laid out in building sites. The An napolis Short Line will run a branch line through the place. Until about ten years ago the place was used as a resort, and is well known to Annapoli tans. It is the last large tract of land to be sold for building purposes on the Severn river. During the Civil War the Union j soldiers used the crest of a hill over- j looking the bay as a fort. Faint out- | lines of a road used by the soldiers is all that remains of the ramparts. From the knoll can be seen long i stretches of the Severn and Magothy rivers and Kent county across the Chesapeake. When the Annapolis Short Line built the road to Baltimore the company purchased the tract, and for years it was used as a pleasure resort. It later passed to the Maryland Electric i C impany. Academic Board Meeting There was a special meeting of the academic board at the Naval Acad emy this morning, when the members of the board went over a large amount of routine work in connection with the recent entrance examina tions which closed last Saturday morning. Following the meeting of the board it was announced that there was nothing of importance to be given out for publication. It is considered un likely that there will be any waving of deficiencies or that any youth whose name was not in the first list posted will be allowed to get into the ser vice.

The style of the Le Muleses is the old -fashioned minstrelsy. The man and woman conduct this to the side splitting laughter of the large audi ence whom they keep in uproars all the time they are on the stage. One is apt to hurst his puckering string laughing at the Le Mules, if he is not careful. One of their jokes is that of the old colored woman who went to a show where a prestidigita teur did tricks. One of his sleight of hand tricks was pretending to read a newspaper through three thicknesses of flannel “Can dat man read tru three thicknesses of flannel?" asked the ne gress. “He certainly can,” said her companion “Den 1 gits out of dis,” said the negress, “Dis yer place is no place for a decent woman.” The LeMules will entertain again tonight at the Colonial Theatre. for raising ‘collier nero John Arbuckle Of New York To Be Paid $71,000 Bv The Government John Arbuckle, the New York mil lionaire, will ho paid $71,000 for his services in connection with the rais ing of the naval collier Nero, which ran aground in Narragansett Bay, R. 1., last year.
