j TAG DAY WAS
GREAT SUCCESS
ON SATURDAY
Public School Children Worked Willi
. Keen Intercut To Sell Red Pros#
t Tags—Success Is Due Them
To say Red Cross “Tag Day” was a
great success on Saturday is putting
it mildly. The splendid sum of 1232
has been already turned in to the Red
1 Cross Drive for the Third Roll Call,
. ami all returns have not come in.
Much of the success of the tag day,
if not the greater part of it, is due to
the energetic and efficient work of the
children of the Annapolis public
school, who took such keen interest
in the work, and went about it with
faithfulness and enthusiasm.
Dogs and horses were tigged, as
well as people, and It was worth a
person's pride, not to say peace of
fuind, to be seen on the streets on
Saturday not wearing the tag of the
j Red Cross. *
Red Cross week ends tomorrow, Ar
' rnistice Day, and is is hoped today to
: round up all the delinquents who have
not yet joined again the list of the
! “children” of the "Greatest Mother on
Earth."

t Jliis is the slogan now prevailing
j among the regiment of 2,000 midship
men, and the supporters of Navy foot

t official mascot of the Navy football
f : warriors, and the middies are already
j. beginning to “doll” him up for the big
, gridiron argument ‘ with the “Army
Mule,” on Hie New York Polo
Grounds, November 29.
, The middies had been advertising
, for a goat of the meanest disposition,
, nnd finally they secured-a stanch one

Wearing a small navy blanket, and
I with one horn all colored with gold,

the Navy “colors," his goatship w. .
led out by a dapper mi.ldic in front

j blinking an eyelid, and he appeared!
none the less ill at ease with ;h?.'
strange environments, except for iiu
j fact that his horns, which are more.
[than a foot long, continually 1 ecame
entangled wirti the ropes. This seem- j
ed to weary him and kept him nod
ding and prancing around to gain liis :
release, only to again get hooked up
with the lines.

10 DECLARE POLICIES
(By Tlie Associated Press.)
T1 iiinca poll’s, Min Nor. 10. — To
! give the American Legion permanent
shape and declare its as a
force in war and in the government!
of the nation, two thousand delegates.}
representing all the sections and
classes of service, men and women,
started the lirst convention here to
day.
Discussion of candidates for nation
al offices, at least a dozen prominent .
men mentioned for the. lirst national j
head of the Legion, brought an em-i
phatic refusal from at least one dele-j
gate.
“When I S3v no. I mean no.” dc- j
clared Theodore Roosevelt, one of the j
delegates from New York, when his I
candidacy was mentioned.
With a mass of decisions affecting
organization to bo settled first con-;
sideration was today given the seleo-1
tion of committees and a tentative;
program prepared for the selection ol
state officers for the first session.
Tuesday will be devoted almost en
tirely to celebration of Armistice Day.

! the occasion by setting apart at least!
a part of the day as holiday for their,
employees.

USHERED IN TODAY, I;
WITH SLAP AND BANG
| ,
j The full and winter gunning season
j in Anne Arundel county gut-off to a ,
i fixing start this morning.
1 Never in history, perhaps, have so
! many residents of the city and county
i taken to the fields with dog and gun.}
As a general rule they go out at the
j crack of day. but this whs rendered
; almost out of the question this raorn
-1 ing Because of the heavy, low. hanging :
fog. This, howeverr, had lifted by 8
o’clock.
Rabbits, squirrels, and
are reported to be very plentiful and :
the season therefore promises to af
i ford great gunning for the sportsmen, j
! One could see the huntsmen here,
there and everywhere, in traversing
the county. Many made the trip to!
their favorite hunting grounds by
i automobiles, bicycles, and other con
veyance, while still many others went
afoot.
Further indicating the greet interest
that marks this gunning season has
been the large number of licenses is
sued from the Clerk’s office at the
Court House. More than 1,200 had
been issued up to noon on Saturday,
and from daybreak this morning there
; was a constant stream of applicants in
i front of the Court House door today,
1 and the license clerks did a rushing
business. The rush became especially j
heavy during the forenoon hours, and !
at times it required the services of
1 three clerks to keep things moving
| along on an even keel, so great was
ithe jam of applicants. Up to 2 o'clock
this afternoon, the number of licenses
issued aproached the 1.700 mark, and
the season probably will hang np a
: record, as the total issued for the
whole of last season was only 1.789.:
land about the same number marked!
jthe preceding year.

DIG GCMPANY FOR
MIDDIE WRESTLERS
Permission To Enter Intcrccl
lcj’ialc Meet, Together With
Pretentious Home Schedule
OTHER WINTER SPORTS
The midshipmen wrestlers will have
■ a busy time of it on the mat during
the coming season, if the plans of the
management of the team are finally
; carried out, and there s.-cuns to be no
doubt but that thev will he
Not only h is official permission been
obtained by Midshipman Gray, mana
ger of the team, to enter the middie
grapplers in the annual intcr-i ollegi
ate tournament, but the schedule of
local matches, as mapped out. will bo
the most pretentious in the history of
the mat game. Dates have been set
apart for seven of the strongest teams
in the East, as compared to three or
four matches in previous years. The
tentative schedule includes the follow
ing dual meets: January 31. Yale:
February 7. Lehigh; 14. University of
Pennsylvania 21. Brineeton; 2s, Co
lumbia; March *!. Penn. State; 13. Cor
nell.
There is every indication of turning
out a strong team, so with such a
schedule ahead, the middies will have
their work pretty well cut out for
them.
The Navy basketballers. who have
already begun to rustle about, will al
so have a busy time of it. Watters,
halfback of the football team, is cap
tain of the five, and pcospoets are the
team will he well representative of
former Navy quints. The season will
open on December 13. with Delaware
College as the opponent, and while
all of the dates have not been definite
ly arranged, the schedule will include
Pennsylvania, Princeton, Virginia, La
fayette, Catholic University. J ihns
Hopkins, Bueknell. North Carolina
University, and probably Georgeto ,vn.
Washington and Lee, Union, and C.i:np
Humphries. “Billy’’ Lush, formerly
of Yale, will again coach the ba3-
kc-ters.
Preparations are also under way for
the gymnasium, swimming and fenc
ing seasons, the other winter sports
that make up the winter indoor pr )-
gram, to fill the gap follow ing the foot
ball campaign and the opening of the
baseball, rowing, lacrosse, field and
track, tennis, and rifle shooting, the
outdoor events that comprise the
Spring adheletics.

jtwo young men who had started from
the city on a gunning expedition, and \
who suffered painful injuries
The injured men arc William U

brothers. It was at first reported that
they were seriously injured, hut thor

suffered principally of cuts and

j The accident occurred about 7:30
‘o’clock this morning The Childs’
(brothers had started from the city to
spend the day gunning in wood and
field at Macey’s farm, near St. Mar

was curtained to prevent the dogs
from getting out. The other car, that
was in the collision, was the mail

Harrington.
Reports vary as to the contributory
causes of the accident, hut a heavy fog
