Disastrous Market Of Past Two
Years Taught Them Profit
able Lesson
r COLLEGE PARK, July 24.—That
1 growers hav e resumed the production
. tomatoes for canning purposes on a
conservative basis, following the dis
> astrous market depression of the past
two years, is indicated in reports re
cently received by Dr. Thomas B.
Symons, director of the University of
Maryland Extension Service, from
. some of the principal producing coun
ties of the State,
Earlier in the season there was
some fear on the part of both growers
. and canners that over-production
> might follow the general slump of
> last year, when many canneries
I throughout the State were closed due
. to the large stock of canned tomatoes
i on hand, according to Dr. Symons. It
was likewise thought possible, lie
said, that many growers might plant
tomatoes without contracting for
their sale to cunners and thus cause
uncertainty regarding the total crop.
Recent Rains Damaged Crops
Reports now available, however,
point to a conservative acreage con
siderably below any planted during
the past four years with the excep
tion of 1921,” said Dr. Symons. “Re
cent rains have very materially dam
aged the crop in many counties so
that yields will probably be twenty
live per cent, below normal produc
-1 tion on the reduced acreage.
“In addition the bulk of the tomato
crop is under contract to canners ut
satisfactory prices. Reports from Ce
cil county are to the efTect that not 10
of the 1,200 acres of tomatoes in the
county remain uncontracted for.
Eighty per cent, of the Harford coun
ty and ninety per cent, of the Kent
’ county crops are under contract snd
in Caroline and Somerset more than
’ tifty per cent, of the crops are under
contract to canners. In addition Som
erset has less than 40 per cent, of a
normal acreage.
”A careful estimate of the pros
pects for canning tomatoes is being
made. But it is believed that with
considerably less than a normal yield
in Right and the bulk of the crop un
| der contract, prices will be fair and
the market continue good throughout
the Beason.”

COLLEGE PARK, July 24.—Two
hundred boys and girls from the ag
ricultural clubs conducted through
out the State by the University of
Maryland Extension Service, are ex
pected at the University of Maryland
here August 7 to 11 to take part in
: the annual activities incident to Club
| Week.
The program will be under the di
rection of P. W. Chichester, assistant
State bovs’ club agent, and Miss Adice
S. Jones, assistant State girls’ club
agent. In addition to the usual
courses of instruction in agriculture
for the boys and home economics sub
jects for the girls, recreation and
amusement features of Various kinds
will be provided.
A pageant in which many of the
boys and girls will participate will
be staged under the direction of Miss
Jones as one of the new features of
the week. A trip to Washington, in
: eluding a reception to the boys and
girls by Secretary of Agriculture
Henry C. Wallace and a visit to the
Washington Zoo, also has been plann
Numerous speakers have been in
• vited to make short talks to the young
folks during the week. A'mong them

Towson. who will represent the Mary*
land State Bankers’ Association;
I Louis McL&ne Merryman, of Cocke\*3-
ville. and Milton Dansiger, of the

Yesterday’s scorching heat, the hot
test day of the summer so far, sent
hundreds of residents of the city
’ scurrying to bay and river shores or
i shaded places in the country where
1 they might get at least some relief.
But it was hot everywhere, in spite
of a fairly good breeze that prevailed
■ throughout the day.
Bathing proved the most popular di
version of the day. Folks, young and
old, hundreds of them, were in the
■ water off and on from before noon
until long after nightfall. Although
the splendid sandy boach at Bay
Ridge drew a big throng, perhaps the
most popular places of all were along
the shores of South river, particlltar
i ly the teach at the far side of the
bridge, where it is safe for non-swim
mers, and where also is a line diving
beard for those proficient in the art.
Fully 600 persons were in the water
there during the late hours of the
afternoon, perhaps a record number.
They gathered there not only from
Annapolis, but from Washington and
Automobiles scores and scores of
them, from the city and outside points,
were parked along the State road be
yond the bridge, until traffic condi
tions were rendered impassable. The
shores of Severn river also were dot
ted by merry parties of bathers.
The temperature was well above the
90-degree mark ail afternoon. There
was a slight drop during the shower
of rain between 10:30 and 11 o’clock.
bu£ altogether the heat of last night
was the most oppressive of the pres
ent summer.
Estate Purchased As School
The estate of J. Conrad Ehni has
been purchased by the Board of Edu
cation of Columbus, Ohio, for school
purposes, and the building when com
pleted will be known as the Washing

Mr. Ehni was the father of Mrs. C.
O. Smith, of Conduit street, this city.
To Draw For Canoe Tonight
All those holding tickets on the
canoe recently offered by the East
port firemen will be interested in
knowing that the drawing will take
place at 8 o’clock tomorrow night at
the Community Hall at Eastport.
Many suggestions have been made
recently towards the organization of
a “Twilight Baseball League” in this
city, and & meeting will be held to
night to discuss plans. Among the
teams interested are the Odd Fellows,
Elks, Reina Mercedes and Marine
It is the intention to play games
three evenings a week, beginning at 6
o'clock, the game to run for seven in
nings during the week and nine in
nings on Saturday. These leagues
have been formed in various cities
with good results and gives the tired
working man and his family a chance
to enjoy some sport during the cooler
hours of the day. Annapolis has
( many good ball players and fans who
will welcome such a league, and it is
hoped the sport-loving people of ths
, city will jtive the league and its pro
moters their hearty support.

Southern Marylanders Appear
To Favor Judge Briscoe, But
Jurist Is Not Inclined To Be
come Candidate—Dorsey And
Klemm In Field
Democrats of Southern Maryland,
apparently, are on the hunt for a can
didate upon which all factions could
unite in an effort to,defeat Congress
man Sydney E. Mudd. who, it appears,
will again win the Republican nomi
nation hands down. Though the
younger Mudd seems to have muster
ed quite as much strength as his late
father whom he succeeded in the
lower house of Congress a number of
years ago, yet the Democrats feel con
fident that they will be able to shelve
him in the coming campaign. .
Two candidates already are in the
field. These are Walter B. Dorsey, of
Cedar "Park, near Annapolis, formerly
of St. TVlary’s county, and Dr. J. Wil
liam Klemm, of Prince George’s
county, both of whom made the prim
ary fight two years. Mr. Dorsey de
clared himself during the late se.ssion
of the General Assembly, stating that
he did so at the solicitation of a num
ber of his friends of Southern Mary
land with whom he had conferred.

The Encampment had its inception
in America, on July 26, 1827, at Bal
timore when Jerusalem Encampment

Wildey and John P. Entwisle. It is a
higher branch of Odd Fellowship and
has been intensely active in its hu
manitarian enterprises. Today there
are 42 lodges in the State with a
membership of over 5.000, and Wil
liam G. Schmidt, of Baltimore, is the
Grand Patriarch.
Word has been received here of the
death in Washington, D. C., on July
13, of Thomas Laurens Swann, cap
tain in the United States Navy (re

! Dr. J. Hubert Wade, chairman, is
expected to issue a call today for a
1 meeting of the Democratic State Cen
tral Committee for one day next

\ j him to confer with the Republican
, chairman and agree upon a date for
the primary election. It also will set
the date for, the Slate convention,
which must not be later than five
weeks before the general election.
If the Democratic organization lead
ers succeed in getting a Senatorial
! candidate in the field, and if David
J. Lewis and Wjlliam I. Norris re
main in the race, the game will per
mit some fine moves. Supervisors of
elections throughout the State say
1 they hope such a contingency will not
come to pass. They declare that end
-1 less blunders on the part of judges
i and clerks in making up the compli
cated tally sheets would result. One
who examined recently the Senatorial
! primary law provisions in regard to
f i dropping low candidates and distrih
i uting their votes among those higher
t on the list said it seemed to require
“addition, division and silence.”
But Missouri Senator Is Confi
dent Of Re-Nomination In
Spite Of All
(By Tlie Aaaorlitrd rmt.)
ST. LOUIS, MO.. July 24.—United
States Senator James A. Reed ex
presses confidence that he will be re
nominated at the August 1 primary
election, despite active opposition by
former President Wilson, a large
number of women voters, and the dry
element, and in spite of the fact that
he' was read out of the party by the
1920 Democratic state convention, be
cause of his opposition to the League
of Nations.
“1 have never lost a fight, and I am
confident 1 shall not lose this one,”
he states iti campaign speeches.
Breckinridge Long, his opponent,
third assistant secretary of state in
the Wilson administration, likewise,
is every bit as confident of victory,
and says the Democrats of Missouri
“will reassert their confidence in the
leadership of Woodrow Wilson and
his policies"—Long’s platform.
Reed has been denying vigorously,
before his campaign audiences,
charges of party irregularity made
against him. “I never strayed from
the patlv, but have been the real Deni- j
ocrat all along,” he emphasizes. “A j
rubier stamp Senator is not a rep
resentative of the people.”
Only infrequently has Reed referred
to the letters Mr. Wilson sent into
Missouri, urging his defeat, one of
which denounced the Senator as n I
‘marplot. The Senator has dismiss- .
ed this phase of opposition with the J
assertion “I have never fought the
president” and advising his audiences
not to allow “outsiders” to tell them
how to vote.
Large groupa of women voters have
been waging a crusade against the
Senator for his opposition to suffrage
and the maternity bill; while certain

George J. Hilbinger, 28, Chauf
feur, Was In Bathing Alone
When Seized By Cramps As
He Jumped From Raft To Boat
And Disappeared
Seized by cramps, so it is believed,
after he had Jumped from an im
provised raft with the intention of
reaching a boat from which he had
been swimming, George J. Hilbinger.
2S years old, 418 Hast Twenty-eighth
street. Baltimore, was drowned Into
yesterday arternoon in the waters of
Selby bay, near Mayo, South river, Id
miles south of the city. The body
was recovered half an hour after the
accident and was placed in charge
of undertaker B. L. Hopping, of An
napolis. who conveyed it to Baltimore
this afternoon.
Overcome In Shoal Water
Hilbinger was an automobile chauf
feur, and for several years had been
employed in that capacity by Frank
Gunther, of Baltimore, who owns a
summer place on Selby Bay and who
witnessed the drowning. It was in
, the waters along the shore of this
j property that Hilbinger sank to his
! death. The water is not more than
• r > feet deep at the point where ho
, sank. Shoal water extends for a con
! siderable distance, and Hilbinger was
200 yards from shore when he was
overcome. He went in bathing alone,
according to Mr. Gunther, who with
John Lee. a colored man, were on
shore and happened to notice Hllblng
er's disappearance. No outcries fop
help were heard.
Knew How To Hwlm
Hilbinger knew how to awim, it Is
stated. He first went out in a boat
and afterwards got on a culling board
and began to paddle about. After pad
dling a short distance from- the drift
ing boat, it is said he jumped from
the raft or hoard, to get back to tho
craft. He sank immediately. Mr.
Gunther, and the colored man, got in
to a boat and hurried to the scene
as quickly as possible and both dived
several times with the hope of recov
ering the body and employing means
of resuscitation. Thoir efforts were
in vain. Finally the waters were
dragged with a long stretch of bob
ed-wire, and in this manner the body
was recovered in about three quar
ters of an hour.
This is the second drowning acci
dent to occur in waters of the county
Two weeks ago, John H. Boland,
well known Baltimorean, suffered a
stroke of apoplexy while bathing In

river, and drowned in two feet of
