NOTABLE EVENT IN
' MARYLAND HISTORY
| To Be Commemorated At Court
Of Appeals Building Sat
urday Afternoon
GENEALOGICAL FACTS
i
The unveiling of the memorial in
respect to the name and services of
John Lewger, the first Land Commis
sioner of Maryland, on Saturday aft
ernoon. in the Land Office here, is
a notable event and well worthily di
rects attention to the services of one
of the eariy pioneers of Maryland.
John Lewger came to Maryland in
1624 as one of the three Councillors
of Governor Leonard, and at once took
a prominent part in the affairs oft the
thriving, bustling new colony. By vir
tue of his membership in the Gov
ernor's Council, Mr. Lewger became
a member of the* General Assembly;:
was made its clerk, and also filled
the office of Secretary to the i’rov
-1 ince. (
His name appears on the commis
sion to ('apt. Henry Fleete to make an
expedition in 1642, against the East-;
ern Shore Indians. The foray w as, (
happily, of small consequence, Mary-
Hand never having had a real war with
her native Indians
Lewger's opinion was also asked
about the case, of one William Lewis,
one of the unfortunate four, who was
executed by the Puritans of Annapo
lis. after the battle of the Severn,
1665. Lewis was charged in 1635.
with making “offensive speeches” and
; engaging in illegal disputations on (
point of religion, contrary to public ,
proclamation.” Lewis was an ardent
Catholic. Public discussions were
jforbidden to preserve the peace of the
colony, although all, even to the Jew, (
enjoyed freedom of opinion and wor
ship. Mr. Lewger decided that Lewis
would have to pay a fine of 500 pounds
of tobacco, and to be in custody until
he paid it.
Mr. Lewger was made the Land
Commissioner of the Province in 1641 j*
and seems to have held the office un- i 1
til 1646.
He was the trusted friend of Lord
Baltimore, and when the Com mis-,

sion Of Citizens To A . enbl.
Conjointly For Considerin
Amendments To Produce Rev
Aiaendments To Product
Revenue
FOR SUB COMMITTEES
TO FACILITATE WORK
The initi.il mee.ing of the Charter
Commission, of Annapolis, appointed
;i few weeks ago by Mayor levy, to
consider certain amendments that it
might kv feasil le to make in ilia p,res
ent City Charter, as a means of secur
ing more revenue to the City Treas
ury. will be held in the Coum-il Chain
1 er tomorrow nigh; at a o'clock.
The city tax is already up to the
limit under the provisions of the char
ter. and with the loss of revenue de
rived from liquor licenses, together
with o her indebtedness that will ;;••
erne within the year, it was finally de
cided that the only way to me u the
exigencies of die situation, is to pro
vide measures for taxation along
oilier lines.
The char.or commission has a mem
bership (jf ten prominent citizens am!
it will meet conjointly with Mayor
Levy and mom! ors of the City Coun
cil. Just what line of procedure is
to be followed is not known at ;L:-
time. Mayor Levy, it is expected, will
preside, as chairman, or it may It
'hat the joint 1 ody may propose a
presiding official r.th.r than the
Mayor.
Tiie Mayor g ated this morning tint
he does not know of the various pro
•■codings that will come before the
meeting. One proposition, however
tit' said, is that of appointing from the
joint Indies, committees to facilitate
the various problems that may m
‘presented from time to time. Another
matter which the Mayor pointed to is
the project of having the Annapolis
Water Company entirely unde? the
control of the Mavor and Citv Council
LEGION POSTPONE DANCE
Young Men Willing To Hold Oil
For Jewish Relief
THEIR DANCE ON MONDAY
At the urgent request of the ladies
in charge of the dance for the Jcwi .li
War Relief Fund to he held in the City
Assembly Rooms on Friday night, the
young men in charge of the dance for
the benefit of the Red Cross, to hive
been given on the same night hy the
American Legion at the State Armory,
has been postponed. >
Annapolis can scarcely stand two
benefit dances the same night and hav (
both a success., therefore as it is the
first time the Jewish people have
ever asked for help of the American
nation, the benefit for the starving
Jews has ) ecn allowed to stand, while
'the young men in charge of the Leg
ion dance have gracefully withdrawn
and will postpone their dance until
Monday night, instead of tomorrow
evening.

' ST. JOHN'S PRIED
FOB BATTLE WITH
RIVALS OF HOPKINS
_ j
In the prime of condition physically
and fit to put up Hie battle of their
lives, the gridiron warriors of St
John's College await the sound of the
referee's whistle that will stack them
against their ancient and most bitter
- rivals of Johns Hopkins University on
Saturday afternoon.
Coach “Dutch” Lentz has been
driving his charges hard this week in
preparation for the big argument as
it is realized that the game will be
a hard one, and there has been no j
attempt to underestimate the strength
of the enemy. St. John's is, of course,
o.u of the running for the titular grid
iron honors, by reason of the defeat
at the hands of the Maryland Stale
College, but a victory over Hopkins
will make their season's climax a
sweet one.
Today Coach Lentz planned to put j
his charges through their last hayd;
I'ldrive in preparation for the fray, as!

flight nature. j
GOVERNOR URGES .
, ARMENIAN RELIEF
In Proclamation He Calls On
People Of State Of
Maryland
THE CAMPAIGN NOV. 22 30
Governor Harrington has issued a
proclamation to the people of Mary
land calling on them to lend every
possible aid to the Jews of Armenia
and other sections of devastated Ku
rope, thousands of whom are at ;he
Point of starvation. In the proclama
tion. the Governor states, among other
things, that the Jews made sacrifices
and went through great ■ suffering the
same as the people of other nationali
ties, and conditions in their stricken
country are such there is decided
cause for immediate relief measures.
Hu* big drive to secure relief in
Annapolis and the County will begin
on the coming Saturday and extend
until November JO. Other means are
1 eing employed fur the raising of
funds, such as a dance which will b,>
held in the city Assembly Hall tomor
row evening.
Charles Weiss, a well known busi
ness man of the city, is head of the
Jewish War Relief Work here.
What does the campaign mean, is
the question asked?
It is the symtol the rallying cry
of a campaign which is to begin in
Haltitnore on Saturday of this week.
A campaign which means the sav
ing of six million men. women and
children from the most horrible of all
deaths
!• or nearly six years these people
have leen in the shadow of death.
They are without food, clothing,
homes lhev lack the barest necessi
ties of life They are the Jews of
Poland, Lithuania, Galicia, Czecho
slovakia and Palestine.
Here is a situation where nothing
(ounts except humanity. THKSE
MULTITUDES MUST NOT HE LEFT
TO DIE.
So. on next Saturday, November
JL’d. and for the week that follows,
men and women of every creed will
unite in the effort to raise the money
needed to feed, clothe and house these
suffering, starving people.
It's everybody's job!
