County Commissioners So Hold, j
Following Opinion Of Their
At the meeting Tuesday of the
County Commissioners, the two mat
iters of especial interest that were be-:
fore the Board were those relating to
the road at Eastport forming the ap- i
iproach to Back creek bridge, and to
the “Old Quarter Road,” in the upper I
end of the county.
Th>e question as to the legal status
of the road at Back creek was raised ]
'at the Board meeting of two weeks
ago when, following a petition and
protest of a number of citizens of
I Eastport against an individual's put- 1
j ting a fence across the former/ road
j leading to the bridge, the Board refer
red v the question to its Counselor,
Ridgely P. Melvin, with a request for
.his legal opinion. Mr. Melvin submit- i
ted his opinion to the Board in writ
ing yesterday, and it w'as ordered filed
and putdished. The substance of it j
is. that the road forming the approacli
to the old bridge was, undoubtedly a
pul lie road during the time the 1 ridge j
was hi use and for years thereafter J
land that it must, under the law. re
> tain its status as a pul lie road until
it is closed in the precise way called
for by the Code of Public General
latws of Maryland. This has never
been done and therefore the erection
of a fence ly anybody across this road
or obstruetidg it in any way, is held
to be a transgression. The opinion
points out that the remedy for this is
by indictment of any wrongdoers, or by
injunction. The opinion also refers to
the fact that tho .Back creek bridge
was constructed under Act of 18S6.
and to the case of Bembe against the
County Commissioners in 1901 in
which the Court dealt directly with
this bridge and the road leading to it.
County Helps Hoads Commission
This- and a number of other mat
ters came up before the County offi
cials in course of their meeting.
Further progress was made in connec
tion with the construction of the Old j
Quarter Road in the Third and
Fourth Districts, in accordance with
a resolution offered by Commissioner
j Disney and which was adopted. This'
I road is to be built .under State-aid
provisions, and the contract for it was
let at a previous meeting of the Board.
It develops, however, that the State
Roads Commission is without suffici
ent funds at this time to cover the
State’s share of the cost, and it was
suggested that the work might be
pushed ahead under State supervision,
if the County could carry the State’s j
share of the costs until such time as
the necessary funds therefor are j
available. Acquiescence in this propo- 1
sition was the effect of the Disney

Dr. Smith Contends System At
Fault Which Neglects Child’s
Spiritual Development
The opening meeting of the series of
four services for Sunday School and
Church workers was held last night in
i the Eastport Methodist Episcopal j
I Church. The speaker of the evening:
j was the Rev. John William Smith.

Dr. Smith's theme was “Some Noe

: eij his representative audience with
! six points: (It “.The supreme task.of!
each generation is the education of its i
children.” He referred to the time, I
i the energy and the money invested in

! that that educational system was at '

for the development of the spiritual j
! nature of the child. To small interest!

interest of the Emergency Hospital!
This drive is for the purpose of rais-1
jug an annual fund for five years to j

Academy Formally Re - Opened
Today Under Pre-War Condi- i
tions Of Four-Year Course
Returning to pre-war conditions.
< that is the re-establishment of the
four-year course of study, the official j
re-opening of the Naval Academy for
; the regular academic term took place;
jat 8 o'clock this morning when the J
! routine of class recitations, etc., got j
under way. This is the seventy-fourth j
, academic year of the institution,
j The Academy oegins the term with!
ia total of 2,oStt students on the ros-i
! ter. They are apportioned among the)
four classes as follows: First, 304;!
Second, 300; Third. 773; Fourth, 700.!
I This is 34 fewer than were carried on j
j the rolls at the beginning of the last j
' term. That tl\e total this year did
not establish a numerical record, lfow- j
j ever, was due to two reasons, first, j
that only two-thirds of the 2,100 can-J
didates designated for appointment to I
| this year’s Fourth Class presented
j themselves for the entrance examina- i
, tions, and of this 1,400, about fifty
| per cent, were found quaVllo*) as
I shown by the roll of 70!) in the new
! class; and secondly, a large number
! of studonts of the Third and Fourth
| cl sees, of last year were compelled to
resign by reason of failures in the,
I last annual examinations conducted in,
June of this year. The total roster;
j of the four classes last year was 2.120.
j The several figures noted are based
! upon information announced from the;
administration offices of the Naval
Academy this morning.
As shown by the above figures, the j
Third Clas has the largest cample-i
meat of students. This, however, is *
not the largest class ever at the Acad- j
emy, for a few years ago the Fourth,;
or entering class, had a roll of over
An idea of the scholastic, and pro
fessional work accomplished at the*
! Academy during the last two years—
| the period that every branch of the
I unitary service of the country was
‘ more than worked double time on
| account of the war—may be gained
1 from the fact that four classes were
i graduated from the academy within j
| two years. This, of course, caused;
curtailment of the work all down the
line. In other words, the regular
four-year course, was crowded into
three years.
When the Midshipmen marched in
to the several class rooms, they
; found many new faces among the j
\ corps of instructors, as there have
j been changes by the wholesale dur-!
ing the summer months, particularly!
! among the tutors taken from the com- j
missioned personnel of the service, i
All of the civilian instructors, who

Arduous Task Of Compiling Data
Under Way And Business
People Can Help
Recognizing the groat need that ex
ists in Annapolis for a eitv directory
that shall !>• thoroughly up to date,
compiled nfter the latest models of
such publications and embodying all
the usual departments of information,
the Capital Publishing Company lias
begun the ardous work of producing
such a valuable and necessary aid to
the business interests of Annapolis and
Anne Arundel county.
The capital city of the State has
been for almost ten years without a
directory of any kind, and that it may
no longer in tins respect remain behind
progressive cities the Annapolis City
irireetorv will shortly be given to what
it is confidently hoped will prove to bo
an appreciative public.
Few persons, other than those direct
ly concerned can have an idea of the
j immense amount of labor involved in
i such a compilation, properly carried
Believing that Annapolis business
men will not fail to sense the import
ance of the undertaking, it is confi
dently hoped that the necessary steps
in the* work—such as the gathering of
names and getting of advertisements
will be willingly assisted by those with
whom the final benefits of the com
pleted work will rest.
It is our aim that no name that
should be included shall be omitted,
and it is hoped that no business man
or woman of Annapolis will withhold
an adequate advertisement of his or
her business from the pages of the di
, rectory.
The success of such an indispensable
aid to bittiness as the city directory is
largely in the hands of the business
men themselves.
With an audience of 200, the Mary
land Tobacco Growers’ Association
I held another of its county meetings

The speakers on the part of the as
\ sociation were the Hon. Thomas Par
;ran and J. H. Drury, both of whom
made strong pleas for membership in
! the association, explaining that for
which it stands and what it means to
the tobacco grower of the county.
Before the close of the meeting near
ly every farmer present signed to put
his crop in the hands of the Maryland
Tobacco Growers' Association.
Subscriptions were taken to defray
| necessary expenses of the association
in conducting the campaign, and it Is
understood a large per cent of the
amount required for incidental ex
. penses was subscribed.
