held. ** •
For the first time, it is said, the co

The late Senator Peter J. Campbell,
of Baltimore city, who died a few
weeks ago. was slated to again pre
side over the upper House.
Mr Ititchie'e effulgent rays spread
over the lobbies of the Rennert last
night and mollified, in part at least, a

■who were ready to go contrary to the
slates which he had prepared When
all the conferring was over, when the
Senators and Delegates went to bed, it
looked as though Mr Ritchie was the
winner, by the acceptance of his pre
ferences for presiding officers of the
two houses.
Albert J. Almony will be chief clerk
of the House; P. Watson Webb, of Dor
chester, for secretary of the Senate;
Joseph R. George, of Queen Anne’s, for
journal clerk, and Andrew Sc haah for
reading clerk, have no opposition for
the desks which they held two years
ago. The positions of journal clerk
and reading clerk of the House ap

there seems to be unusual interest
manifested in the study of Esperanto
Meetings will be held weekly in the
future, possibly at the Little Rook

social features occasionally, such as
theatre parties, dinners and niusicales
Esperantists were present at the
meeting from as far away as Denmark
and Mexico, and it was reported that a
good many women are interested in
the study of the proposed world lan

at the Public Library, was elected sec

be elected at the next meeting. Text
books are avalable at the library, and
some of the members plan to purchase

Refrigerator Space
Left-over food is often wasted by
evaporation if small quantities are
stood away in large dishes and
bowls in the ice box. The cooking
teacher at a course of demons! rat ion
lectures advocated putting leftovers
in preserve or jelolv glasses, both for
this reason and because more space
is left in the ice box.

'lie balconies. The voice of the ’Brit- jl
isher rang clear, through the mam
moth building, and every word ut-;
tered could be heard by his auditors.!'
At the close of his address, there *
reverberated through the rafters of t
the structure a cheer by the regiment,
hat made tine feel that they were
fairly rocking. This hit of ceremony |
from the students came as a com- I
plete surprise to Admiral Jellicoe. A !
small platform had been erected at i
' one corner of the balcony, and at ihe !
appointed time. "Mike" Curley, cheer 1

The cheer was given in perfect
rhythm, and the volume of noise was '■
’ almost deafening. Admiral Jellicoe i
acknowledged the honor by a regu- ■
; lation salute. '■
It was shortly before 11 o'clock that <
'he special car over the Washington,
Baltimore ami. Annapolis Electric
Line, bearing the noted Britisher and
1 his staff and a few American naval (
officers, reached the No. 2. or Martin
1 street gate to the government reser-
' vation. There the members of the
' offiu ial party left the car and enter- (
ing automobiles were driven to Wor- 1
1 den Field. The passage of Admiral ,
Jellicoe through the gate, was thesig-,
nal of* a salute of 19 guns from the (
battery aboard the station ship ,
‘ Reina Mercedes. A company of mar- ,
ines under the command of Major
' John Marston. was paraded'along the
' walk. The soldier-sailors presented ,

of music by trumpeters.

1* Short Of Stature
Admiral Jellicoe is little above five
feet in stature. His face is a-rosy red
from exposure of the elements on the
high seas. Lines that spell merriment
mark his features and the irrepressi
ble twinkle in his dancing eyes hail
him. stern commander though he be.
as "the good fellow" of the British
Navy. This characterization of him
often has been borne out by the testi
mony of American naval officers, many
of them now in Washington, who saw
service directly under Jellicoe in the
recent scrap. Admiral Jellicoe. with
Admiral Sims, it is known, was re
sponsible for the safe conduct of most
of the American forces overseas.
Hi* Career Eventful
Admiral Jellicoe is best known to .
history as commander of the British
fleet which put to rout the German
fleet off Jutland. But Jellicoe is popu
lar especially with American allies
from the fact that; as early as 1917. he
collaborated with his old friend. Ad

His latest promotion, to admiral of
the fleet, was made last April, since j
when he has been on the current mis-1
sion tour.
He participated in the Boxer trou

the lung by a machine gun bullet. He j

twenty-one officers and 350 men were*
drowned, but the then Capt. Jellicoe]
miraculously was saved after long:
hours’ exposure to the sea.
The experience of capsizing in mid-j
ocean was not a new one to him. When
he commanded a gig manned by volun- ]
teers going to rescue a steamer strand-1
ed on a sand bank near Gibraltar the
heavy seas capsized the rescuing party,
all of them being saved.

bonds with the United States Navy,
saying that lie had first experienced
it when the travies of the United States
and Great Britain co-operated in
China in 1900, and how it had been ’
tremendously strengthened during the j
late war. j
Admiral Jellicoe referred to the |
Naval Academy and its history, say- i
ling that it was far larger than any i
institution of the kind in the United
Kingdom and was begun at an earlier
date. He referred to the great tra
ditions of the Navy and told of the
close alliance of traditions with
esprit d'eorps, discipline and patriot
ism. Traditions, he said, made a man
sink himself in his efforts for his
unit, his ship, his fleet or his. country,
and was closely allied to the team
work which is learned in the sports
of England and America.
In closing. Admiral Jellicoe told the

them that the peace of the world was
assured as long as the Navies of the
