LOTHIAN CLUB OF
HOMEECONOMICS
Holds Successful Exhibit In The
County.
SIX PRIZES AWARDED
Strong Appeal For Liberty Loan By
Chaplain Evans —Claggett
Hall Crowded.
Clagget Hall, near St. James’
Church, Tracey’s Landing, this coun
ty, was crowded to overflowing yes
terday afternoon at the exhibition of
done by the ladies of the
i Home Economics Club at Lothian.
t • The hall, an attractive building,
i was decorated witl* cosmos, white
* chrysanthemums and dahlias, and
i long tables spread either side and at
the end facing the entrance demon
strated thp splendid work done by the
Lothian Club during the past sum
mer under the direction of Miss Mil
dred Ilevell Brady, County Demon
■ strator in the Co-operation Exten
sion Work in Agriculture and Home
Economics for Maryland.
’! Each county has its agent and
demonstrator, and they are subordi
nate to the State Demonstrator and
Agent, Miss Venia Kellar, who was
also present at the Lothian Club’s
exhibit yesterday.
The work is being done under the
direction of the State College of
■ Agriculture, College Park, by whom
it is specialized. .
There are eleven clubs of women
in Anne Arundel County who have
been engaged since last spring in
Home Economics work. The Lothian
Club has made a splendid record.
Their work displayed yesterday was
highly creditable There were cans
(glass jars) of corn, peas, beans,
beets, cherries, pineapple, peaches,
apple, and all kinds of jellies, as well
as dried fruits and vegetables of all
kinds.
All the cans were numbered and
the judges awarded the prizes as fol
low, according to numbers, not
knowing until the numbers were call
ed who were the prize-winners:
The first prize, No. 34, for best
canned vegetables and fruits, went to
Miss Emily Murray. The prize was
a nest of useful articles for kitchen
use, measuring cans, sieves graters,
tin cups, pans, etc
No. 34 was also congratulated for
splendid specimens of dried fruits.
The second prize was awarded Mrs.
William Seares for jellies and pre
serves; the third, Mrs. Davidson, for
pickle; fourth, Mrs. Early Phibbins,
for pickle. Mrs. Gray won a prize for
dried fruits and vegetables, and Mrs.
O. Perry, No. 49, for "canned vege
tables. All the prizes were useful
articles, such as a nest of bowls, cold
meat fork, butter spreaders, etc.
Miss Brady, in awarding the prizes,
congratulated the women on their in
terest in the work and the splendid
result, and thanked them for their
hearty co-operation.
The work of' the club will be re
sumed next year along more advanc
ed lines.
Several addresses were made prior
to the awarding of prizes, but the
Lothian Club exhibit was the chief
feature of the occasion, as it was the
“Club’s Own Day.’’
The rector of St. James’, Rev. Hugh
Martin, made a forceful speech, ex
plaining and outlining features of the
government that had led up to this
Home Economics work. The Rector
explained the meatless days, and the
wheatless days, and the obligation
resting upon each family and in
dividual. He paid a glowing tribute
to Mr. Hoover, the National Food Ad
ministrator. and told of his wonder
ful work in Belgium and what that
nation owed to him.
Mr. Martin read letters from the
President and from Mr. Hoover, also
from Mr. Francis Carey, Chairman of
the Executive Committee for the Na
tional Food Administration. He made
an earnest appeal to all present to
help the government win this war by
saving food and avoiding waste.
Miss Kellar.
Miss Venia Kellar. State Agent of
the Woman’s Department of Home
Economics, made a dignified and im
pressive speech, brief, but to the
point. Practically the whole world
is at war, she said. Fighting is going
on in the atmosphere, under the
water, all around and about. No
sooner was war declared than the
Department at Washington sent out
telegrams to every agricultural de
partment throughout the United
States that this war must be fought
in the furrows. well as in the
trenches. We must fight behind the
plow as well as behind the flag.
History is being made, and women
are helping to make it, she said.
Never was woman’s place in the
world as important as it is now. We
are glad we do not live in the age
when it is respectable to die on the
record of our ancestry, but all on a
common level, fighting must be done
by the high and the low, the rich and
the poor, the aristocrat and the
plebeian.
On the 24th of last April the big
gest piece of news went broadcast —
the food problem, an unsolvable propo
sition. Hoover said it must be solved
to win this war, and the solution was
food conservation. Women most do

it. They must can, dry, preserve and
conserve all vegetables and fruits as
tbey had never done before. Nine
women started to work in State Col
lege in June. In August this num
ber had increased to 31 trained work
ers, co-operating with the govern
ment in the work of food conserva
tion. Women have canned and dried
fruit who never did before, and Anne
Arundel has done her share.
There is work to be done among
the colored women. Miss Kellar said.
The government has appointed a col
ored woman for Montgomery Coun
ty to work in Anne Arundel, Mont
gomery and Prince George's, and she
asks the hearty co-operation of the
women of this county.
Miss Kellar paid a high compliment
to the capable and efficient work ac
complished by Miss Mildred Brady,
through the Woman’s Home Economic
Clubs of Anne Arundel County, and
Mr. Whiteford, Agent for the county,
representing the Agricultural Depart
ment’s special work along the lines of
agriculture.
Miss Kellar also commended the
County Commissioners for their
splendid co-operation in the work,
also the School Commissioners for
their hearty support. She feaid it is
not every county that has the co
operation of its officials as Anne
Arundel has. The work will continue
next year, and it will begin earlier
and it is hoped to do more.
Chaplain Evans Pleads for
Liberty Bonds.
Chaplain Sydney K. Evans, U. S. N.,
of the Naval Academy, made an earn
est appeal for the Liberty Loan
Bonds, prior to which he compliment
ed the previous speakers on having
giving the audience so much informa
tion in such small compass, short and
compact, and wished more people
could have been present to hear the
address of Miss Kellar and the Rec
tor of St. James’.
The Chaplain said he came from
the State that gave our country its
flag, and lie is particularly fortunate
in living in the State that gave our
country its National Anthem.
He spoke of the fine spirit of ’76,
ad said what our fathers did in ’76,
and in 1812, and later in ’9B, it is up
to us to imitate. God uses nations as
He uses individuals, and He is using
this nation now, but we must do our
part and not sit back and say as we
read what others are doing, “Wasn’t
that fine!” Are we going to win this
war by proxy? We have nothing that
has not been handed down to us
through the blood, tears and sacri
fices of those who have gone before.
The Present is only a bridge between
the Past, and Future. There was
patriotism before the Saviour came.
Christianity has taken patriotism and
made a religious thing of it. We
know r we are IN THE WAR, but there
are many who do not know, who do
not realize it.
The Chaplain said he had just re
ceived an hour before he came to
this meeting, rolls of foolscap from
the Secretary of the Navy with lists
of officers and men who have given
up their lives in this war. We have
had everything except invasion, and
that is coming unless we wake up.
The German Emperor said to our
Ambassador some time ago: “I be
lieve in war; if there is no war while
my father in on the throne, there will
be when I get there.’’ Furthermore,
the Emperor of Germany has said,
“After this war 1 will stand no non
sence from America! The Monroe
Doctrine, indeed! Impertinence!”
What are we going to say to the
people who have gone to fight for us
when they come back? It is our
work, our energy, our effort, our
money that must help win this war.
Everybody can do something. A New
England woman, an invalid, has
knitted over 13,000 sweaters through
her own agency and interesting
her friends. Uncle Sam knows the
shortest way to peace Is the Mailed
Fist. No more Lusitania and Bel
gium. We shall have both if we do
not fight that battle in Europe and it
will be bought right here. If we
don't win this war Germany will take
all we have. Uncle Sam must have
our money or we must pay it as an
indemnity. Uncle Sam could make us
give it up, but the compulsory side
of the thing is so Un-American. We
are fighting in strict accordance with
history. Our flag has never gone to
war except in self-defense.
Describing “our flag,” the Chaplain
spoke of t the “Purity of Motive” the
white stripes represent; the red, the
blood of sacrifice; the blue field with
the stars, indicative of heaven. So it
is with us to carry this flag to the
front and to purchase with our money
the Liberty Loan Bonds. We are not
giving this money to the government
as a matter of self-defense—it is
merely a loan, a good investment.
Uncle Sam pays us 4 per cent
Everything is pledged. Uncle Sam
needs your money for food, clothing,
ammunition for our soldiers at Camp
Meade and all other cantonments, on
the ships, and everywhere. If the
women become interested they will
stir up brothers, husbands and sons.
Every woman in Maryland should
squeeze and pinch and save a dollar a
week to pay for a Liberty Loan Bond.
Some women, many women, the Chap
lain said, are giving up buying new
clothes tfcis winter in order to sub
scribe to the Liberty Bonds.
We pray for the success of our
army and navy, but we have no right
to pray for things unless we try to
ANOTHER BANK TO
DO BUSjNESS HERE
Branch of Eastern Shore Trust Co.
Organized
W. M. HOLLAD \Y, PRESIDENT
Other Officers ond Directors are Chosen
—Expect to Open Doors First
of Year
Another banking institution is to
begin business in Annapolis.
The Eastern Shore Trust Company,
which was founded at Cambridge in
1901, and which for the last several
years has been engaged in establish
ing branch banks in the State, princi
pally through the counties of South
ern Maryland, has made Annapolis a
link in the chain. It has been known
for several months that the Eastern
Shore institution had its eye on An
napolis as a good field for another
branch organization, and the plans as
sumed definite shape last night when
a number of the prospective stock
holders got together and organized by
the election of officers and directors*
Mr. W. Meade Holladay, until re
cently editor and owner of the Adver
tiser-Republican, a weekly publica
tion of this city, was made President;
Charles F. I>ee, a real estate dealer,
vice-president, and Wilson G. Gott,
attorney. These? together with the
following three bt siness men. will
comprise the board of directors:
Former Mayor John deP. Douw, T.
Roland Brown, and William H.
Thomas. It is proposed to add three
more men to the directorate, and
these probably will be taken from
among the substantial farmers of the
county.
The new banking institution will be
officially known as the “Annapolis
Bank of the Eastern Shore Trust
Company of Maryland,” and accord
ing to the plans of the officials, it is
expected that its doors will be open
for business By the first of the year.
The headquarters of the bank will
be on the southeast corner of Church
Circle and Gloucester street, as the
officials have an option on the old
Pinkney residential property. In
fact, the deal for the purchase of this
property has practically been con
summated. The building will be re
modeled in order to afford first-class
banking quarters.
With the Annapolis Bank establish
ed, the parent organization will then
have 14 branches in the State, the
others being as follows: The Prince
Frederick Bank, the Solomon’s Bank,
the Owings Bank, the Indian Head
Bank, the Charles County Bank, the
Leonardtown Bank, the Cambridge
Bank, the Hurtock Bank, the Vienna
Bank, the Federalsburg Bank, the
Sharptown Bank, the East New' Mar
ket Bank, and the South Dorchester
Bank It will be noted that the only
county that is not represented in the
chain is Prince George’s.
Here is the financial statement of
the mother institution of these banks,
as of May 30. 1917:
Resources —Loan and Discounts.
$2,305,511.96 Stocks, Bonds, Securi
ties, etc., $1,458,197.11; Due from Na

near future. It is understood a num

already been made.

money and he must have it. May God
bless all and may He keep righteous
ness and peace in this world.
Mrs. Theodore Johnson.
Representing the Woman’s Commis
sion of the Council of Defense, Mrs.
Theodore W. Johnson spoke briefly
and to the point. Mrs. Johnson spoke
of receiving a telegram from Annis
ton, Ala., asking for 184 sweaters for
men at Camp McClellan, sleeveless
“slip-overs,” to be worn under the
shirts. Mrs. Johnson also made a
pl.ea for the Liberty Bonds.
Mrs. J. E. Craven distributed yarn
and needles to the women of the
Lothian Home Economics Club who
pledged to knit a sweater for tbe
Anne Arundel men at Camp McClel
lan, Ala.
Miss Luckett Iglehart, Chairman of
the work of the Lothian Club, pre
sided at the meeting, and introduced
the speakers.
It was announced there will be a
community convention of all the
Anne Arundel Home Economics Clubs
in Annapolis on Tuesday, November
20, at the State House, at 10 A. M.
Governor Harrington will deliver the
address of welcome. Mrs. St. George
Barber and Miss Luckett Iglehart will
be among the judges.
REVIEW ASSESSMENT OF
SECOND DISTRICT PROPERTY
County Commissioner* Devote Nearly
Whole Day To Work--Ask New
Bids For Sewers.
The fact that there was little or no
business of a general nature to come
up for consideration by the County
Commissioners at their meeting on
Tuesday, that body devoted the major
portion of the day to a further review
of the tax re-assessment of real es
tate in the Second District, a continu
ation of the work that was taken up
last week.
One matter of importance to the
Linthicum Heights section of the
county in which action was taken, was
the decision to re-advertise for bids
for. the construction of a sewerage
system there. Bids for this work
were previously advertised for and
were opened at the meeting of the
Board on October 16, but owing to an
error in one of the bids, it was de
cided to reject all of them. In the
meantime, it was said, the county
officials had hit upon another scheme
to take care of the Linthicum
Heights sewerage, but after further
consideration and to satisfy the de
mands of the property owners there,
new bids are to be advertised for, in
accordance with the order passed at
yesterday’s meeting.
Clerk Tilghinan submitted his re
port of the proportionate rate of tax
expenditures from July 1 to October
1, 1917, by districts, as follows:
First District, 7 cents on the $100;
Second District, 15 cents; Third Dis
trict, 16 cents; Fourth District, 24
cents; Fifth District, 24% cents;
Eighth District C% cents; general
county rate, 20 cents.

Midshipmen at the Naval Academy

$107,250 to the Liberty Loan Bonds.
This is a grand and glorious showr
ing. Practically eviery Midshipman
of the regiment took out Liberty Loan

In this great drive on the ev& of the
Liberty Loan Rally today.
All battalions and companies are
represented in this sum of one hun
dred and seven thousand two hun
dred and fifty dollars.
.The authorities at the Naval Acad
emy gave permission to canvass the
regiment for subscriptions to the
Liberty Loan Bonds, and a number of
young naval pfficers were detailed to
take charge of the work.
Last evening Lieut. C. M. James,
U. S. N., reported that the sum total
subscribed by the Midshipmen was
$107,250.
This means that the regiment, com
posed of 1,450 Middies, each took out.
approximately $74 in Liberty Bonds.
The Naval Academy never does
things by halves, and the Middies
have shown the true Navy spirit in
this grand sum total for Uncle Sam,
their foster father.
