COUNTY LADS FOURTH i IN STATE OLYMHAD Anne Arundel Juveniles Regis tered 27 Points In Annual Games MEADE AND MANG STAR Schoolboy athletes representing Anne Arundel county at the State Olympald, held yesterday morning and afternoon at Homewood Field, Baltimore, gave an excellent account of themselves in all of the various track and held events in which'they participated, and at the conclusion of 1 the day’s games the official scorer of the Public Athletic League found that the Anne Arundel lads had garnered fourth place among the point wdnhers. Youthful athletes from eighteen counties of the State and also from Baltimofe city competed in the vari ous events. Baltimore city annexed first place with 54 points, Allegany county 'came second with 36 points, Baltimore county landed third place with 36 markers, and Anne Arundel’s 27 points gained for thd home-county boys fourth honors. The athletic rep resentatives of fifteen other counties trailed to the rear of Anne Arundel. Record lly Loral Lad Aside from the general excellence of all the local county contestants, the performance of Meade, of Anne Arundel, who won the ‘‘standing, hop step and jump” event, 95-pound class, stood out prominently. In making a distance of 24 feet 5 inches, Meade hung up a new State Olympiad record for the event. The Annapolis dodgcball team also covered itself w'ith glory when it landed first honors in the Boys’ Dodge Ball Championship feature event. The team from Anne Arundel, which was composed of Meade, Smith. Hopkins, Ciccarone, Bussell, To manino, Mang, Sadler, Kutch and Restanio, made a clean sweep in its march to the title-goal, laying low all of the teams facing it. Charles coun ty was beaten by a 12 to 9 score; Prince George's was tucked away to the tune of 15 to 10, and the final bat tle with the Allegany squad was brought into the fold, 12 to 11. 410-Relay Team Second Anne Arundel came second in the 440-yard relay (95-pound class) and second in the senior unlimited class high jump, Williams bringing this latter honor to the county.

Mang, of Anne Arundel, got second place in the standing broad jump, but the winner of this event, Marvel, of Queen Anne’s, was compelled to break the former Olympiad record in order to down the local boy.
