Body Of Young (irisbey F.
Thomas Laid At Rest In
Naval Cemetery
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.
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.
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

Congressman Ames May Fly
From Annapolis
Torpedo Boat And Aeroplane Will Race
Down Severn —Airship Is Congress
man's Invention
J Combined airship and torpedoboat
races will be conducted in the placid ;
waters of the Severn river, uere,
shortly, under the auspices of the
1 Navy Department.
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

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
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.

The Lc Mules In Blaik Face Comedx
Please At Colonial Theatre
Large audiences were well pleased
last night at the Colonial Theatre,
where Le Mules and Le Mules, two
black-face comedians, created great
fun and made a great hit.
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.”

Miss Meliora Duvall, ageu St* years,
died suddenly at her late residence 1 ,9
Duke ol Gloucester street, corner of
Conduit street.
Death was due to acute indigestion
The deceased was a daughter of John
W. Duvall and Anne Miller, and

famous official surveyor of the city of
Annapolis, whose maps of the old
town today show tin l old surveyor—
genius and aptitude for his work
The deceased is survived by an in
valid sister, Miss Catherine Duvall,
aged 90 years. A strange feature of
the death of Miss Meloria is. that her
sister, Miss Catherine, who has been
desperately ill for some months, sur
vives, while the sister who was up
parently well lies cold and still in
death. The news of the sudden death
of the sister has been kept front the
invalid who calls for her sister con
stantly. at intervals night and day.
The death of Miss Catherine has
been expected for a long time, as
she has been a great sufferer.
The funeral of Miss Meloria will
take place front tho late residence
