RAILROAD TICKET
AGENTS RUSHED TO
LIMIT BY MIDDIES
Hundreds Of Kmhryo .Naval Officers
\ Ik-siege i'orp Of Sixteen Sellers
t During Hay K
One of the busiest places in the city
today was the ticket office of the
> United States Railroad Administra
tion on Maryland avenue. And it was
because of the hundreds of midship
men just back from the summer
cruise, made a rush to get tickets for
, cities, towns and hamlets in every
1 j section of the country,
j Anticipating the rush that would re
sult from the middles going on their
vacation, a force of 14 clerks were
sent down from the Baltimore and
i lilo, and Pennsylvania Railroad offices
jin Haltimore and Washington, to as
j s Ist Charles Johnson, and Anthony C.
Davis, the regular agents here. While
j the Maryland avenue office was be
sieged throughout the day, the ma
jority of the clerical force held forth
at the Naval Academy where they
! could handle the demands of the em
bryo officers first hand.
CRABS AND FISH
MORE PLENTIFUL
After a season of marked scarcity,
cral s, both soft and hard shell are be-j
coming more plentiful than at any j
time hitherto this summer. Fish are;
also more plentiful, and the fish mar-!
i ket had an abundant supply on hand
today.
Prices for soft crabs have fallen
■,i little since they are being caught in j
I greater abundance, and they were sell- j
i ing today at 75 cents, and one dollar a
dozen. '~-
That crabs are coming into their j
own after a season of unprecedented !
j scarcity and high prices, is hailed!
t with delight by the lovers of the crus- I
| taceous delicacy.
FINES IMPOSED BY
JUSTICE OF PEACE
Two have been brought before
Magistrate Welch this week by the |
county officials, a fine of $5 and cost
being imposed in each case. The first j
was a charge of trespassing brought
against Irwin Sora, a clored driver,
who it is claimed, had entered a corn
field without the permission of the
owner. The second case was one of ;
assault. The defendant was Henry
Duerbeck, who was found guilty of
having assaulted Charles Prettyman.

! ANNAPOLIS BABY
WINS A PRIZE AT
; PEN MAR SHOW
i Charles A. Hodges, Son Of Clerk In
County Treasurer's Office, De
clared A Prize Winner
For babies Annapolis takes the
palm, but does not always get the
prize. Such, however, was the case
yesterday at the baby show at Pen
Mar Park, where 12,000 visitors saw
300 infants in a contest at the baby
show.
Yesterday was “Everybody’s Day,”
at Waynesboro fair, and was the most
amusing event of the park season.
All the events came off with the
greatest success. There were 300 in
fants in the baby show', the largest
field ever entered in this class.
*Tbe prize for the “fattest baby”
went to Charles Albert Hodges, Jr.,
son of C. A. % Hodgcs, chief clerk in the
County Treasurer’s office’ this city,
who won the first prize. Annapolis
knows this baby deserved the prize,
for it is the largest, healthiest, hap
piest and fattest baby in all Anne
Arundel and that is saying a good
deal.
The judges of the baby show were:
j Hugh McNeil, Jr., Baltimore; Walter
j T. Todd, Waynesboro, and W. S. lial
j ler, Frederick ,Md. The prizes were
j lavallieres, teddy bears, signet rings
; and dolls. Every baby got a souvenir
silver spoon.
“NAUGHTY” MIDDIES TO
LOSE SEPTEMBER LEAVE
j Because they failed to toe the scratch
las far as conduct Is concerned during
the summer cruise that has just tor
| minuted, a large number of midship
men will le denied all or part of their
! September leave, it became known
! this morning. The authorities of the
I Academy did not state the exact num
ber of students who will suffer for
their misdoings, but the list is a big
one; and the punishment that has been
; imposed varies from a week to a
j month's deprivation of liberty, in audi
tion to having demerits charged
against them as is customary under
the regulations of discipline govern
ing the student body.
TWO MEN HURT WHEN

Shore Via Ferry
Line
Two men were injured early yester
day morning and mail bound for the
jPlastern Shore byway of the Annapolis
Claiborne ferry was delayed four hours
when a heavy mail truck collided with
a heavy autotruck near Glen Burnie.
The injured are: Charles F. Stem
bler, 1514 Ramsay street. Baltimore;
hurt internally, and Edwin A. Bally, of
Easton, Md., who sustained a cut scalp
and bruises on the body. Neither was
seriously injured.
According to Badly, the accident oc
curred when the mail truck was struck
by the autotruck, which was going in
the same direction. The driver contin
ued, he said, and offered no assistance.
Two wheels were torn from the mail
struck and it was thrown into a ditch
and turned over.
Bally said the truck bore a Mary
land license, No. 8959. which number
was issued to Thomas Cromwell, of
Glen Burnie.
FIVE OF CRUISING •

midshipmen’s cruising squadron, that
returned to Annapolis yesterday from
the annual summer practice cruise,

Daniel Jacobs, whose home is on
Princo George street, Annapolis, has
been committed, on the certificate of
Doctors Murphy and Joyce, to the hos
pital at Spring Grove to receive treat

Jacobs was a rather sudden develop

friends that the result of expert care
l at the hospital may be a complete
cure.

: MANY ENJOY DANCING
1 j During the /losing clays of the ear
j nival that has attracted hundreds of
people each night this week to the
' ! grounds adjoining the W., B. & A. sta
-1 tion on West street, special efforts are
• jleing made ly all of the ladies who
; have worked so faithfully for the suc
; ; cess of the affair from the start, to
have been justified, for every night
.’ thus far there has t een an increasing
attendance over that of the preceding
’evening. r
Last night was mart:<|d the largest
gathering of the week. Those people
who were driven home ly the rain of
(Wednesday evening turned out again,
in numbers to take advantage of the ;
excellent weather and enjoy the even- i
ing of entertainment that" the carnival
I offers.
.With the exception of Wednesday,
weather has favored the fete from the
start, and the decorations have re-j
mained as fresh as when they were
first placed on the grounds. Also the j
■ effect of the good weather on the dance |
floor has teen pleasing. It was fear- !
ed at first that too much care was j
icing given to the preparation of the
floor, Hi nee one big rafn would Le suf
ficient to spoil the smoothness of its
surface. This has not 1 een the case, I
in spite of the gloomy prognostica
tions of those who were afraid that
something would happen. The floor
.! has been filled for every dance night-1
! ly, and those who have enjoy ed it say j
that it is the lest temporary floor,
that they ever danced upon. In fact,!
j the floor could scarcely be called tern-j
j porary, for it is of portable construe-j
lion and therefore, can Le kept for
• j service on other occasions.
j Sales at all of the booths have been
: very large, and the carnival as a whole
jis said to le the most successful, thus
! far, of any that has ever been held in
(the city. Each night a delicious cake,
j contributed by one of the city’s bakers,
i is awarded to the holder of the lucky
I coupon in a contest. The lucky win
j uer was Miss Juris Grollman. who
1 , was given the cake contributed by
1 King’s Bakery. The prize for tonight
| will le the contribution of Purkra
! lek’s Bakery. Each of the city bak
ers has made a similar contribution,
II and l*eir assistance in this way has 1
! jleen a considerable advantage to the
i carnival's financial success,
i The demand for an opportunity to
become the owner of the Awboat thati
is being offered in one of the contests
has become so great that it was nec
’ jessary for the committee to obtain a
1 new supply of coupons to sell. The
1 boat stands high on a platform at the
carnival grounds, where everybody j
may see it, and it has in itself proved j
; to be a very successful advertiser,
t One of the big features each night
has been the minstrel show, the pro-;
. gram of which has teen changed daily.
I The amount of work required in the j
i preparation of this part of the pro- j
gram lias been great, but the result

At the regular month-end meeting '

M ss &affer was given unstinted praise

which is manifest in the splendid con

Miss Margaret Wohlgemuth, former 1

Miss Wohlgemuth left the hospital su

j The local hospital has not been in

The committee on finance is about

11. Geis* Candidacj —Three Asplr
ants In Field
Another one of the many develop
i meats that have been taking place l
recently in Anne Arundel county poli- .
tics was indicated today when Senator
Frank M. Duvall formally withdrew
as a candidate for the State Senate
in the coming election. He gave notice
of his withdrawal to the Board of ■
j Supervisors of Elections today, and the
question of returning his entrance fee
paid at the time of tiling his candidacy
wil be decided at the Board's meeting! 1
to l e held tomorrow.
The probability of Senator Duvall’s j 1
withdrawal from the race had been 1
rumored about for some time and his ’’
j action, therefore, did not come as a ‘
I complete surprise.
Just what new political lines will 1
(now be laid was the subject of con-jj
siderable speculation in political cir-i*
cles. and the rumor that seemed to be
’ most generally accepted was that '
! Senator Duvall would fall in line with (
, that element of the so-called “Progres
sive” faction that recently made up a (
slate headed by John H. Geis, of Brook- •'
lyn, for Senator.
It is understood that this course!*
has been more or less clearly indi-t*
cated by Senator Duvall and some of j
his friends and if this turns out to be j 1
correct, the political situation in the ‘
county will be considerably enlivened.! 1
Now that Senator Duvall is no long- 1 1
j I
era candidate, and former Mayor!
Strange, having also withdrawn, the
three candidates'left in the field are 1
John H. Geis. Hugh It. llilcy and A. (

PRICE ONE CENT
MIDDIES BET AWAY
TODAY FOR ANNUAL
SEPTEMBER LEAVE
City Was Crowded For Several
Hours Following Disem
barkation From Ships
FEW IN “CITS” ATTIRE
The annual summer cruise of the
midshipmen officially came to a close
today when nearly 1,700 students, com
prising the members of the first, sec
ond and third classes, who have spent
a little short of three months at sea.
are getting out of Annapolis, on their
annual vacation which will extend un
til September 30. The majority of the
middies contemplate spending their
leave throughout the country, but some
few who live at distant points, will
while away their time at the nearby
coast, or other resorts.
The complement of second and third
classmen who returned to Annapolis
yesterday aboard the six battleships of
the supimer cruising squadron disem
barked from the respective ships at
daybreak, and with the members of the
first class who made the cruise on the
more modern fighting machines of the
Atlantic fleet, and who returned to the
city by rail having left the ships at
different naval stations along the At
lantic coast, the town was literally
flooded with the khaki-clad youngsters
this morning ami during the early aft
ernoon hours making purchases here
and there preparatory to going ou
leave.
Long before the average Annapoli
tan had turned over in bed for the
final morning ‘'snooze,” many of the
middies were being brought ashore on
barges steam cutters, submarine
chasers and other craft, and soon were
seen about the streets of the city.
Several banking institutions and the
clothing dealers were kept busy
throughout the day supplying the
needs of the embryo officers. ,
Perhaps the nflrost noticeable thing v '"*
1n connection with the leave-taking
of the middies, was the fact that the
large majority of them went away in
their service uiforms of blue, instead
of “cits,” as has marked their attire
in former years, because there is al
ways a decided desire to discard the
regulation outfits during the vacation
period. About the only answer
that could be given to the question of
why such shouid be the case, is the
high cost of clothing, for as everyone
knows, suits have soared in price
along with the general trend of the
‘H. C. L.” The price of a suit of
clothes right now is, in many instan
ce: more than double that compared
to the corresponding period of last
year.
As is generally the case with the
departure of the midshipmen, men
and boys about lown. white and col- .
ored, mostly the latter, however, reap
ed a harvest for a time, in taking care
of the luggage of the middlics as they
made their way from the government
reservation to the railway terminals,
or other points about the city, whither
they went to attend various mat
ters. Outside the main, or Maryland
avenue gate, the single means the
midshipmen are required to usd in
leaving or entering the grounds of the
Academy, there was a crowd through
out the morning and early afternoon,
and it required the services of several
of the corps of watchmen to preserve
order amang the men and boys in
their eagerness to grab up the suit
cases and grips of the middies.
Lieutenant-Commander R. P. Mol
ten, of the Navy, reported today for
duty at the Naval Acaiemy and will
be assignd as an instructor in the
department of navigation.
