75 Years Ago

* Not a fish or crab couls be bought today at the Annapolis City Market. The cause was laid to lack of labor with men at war and reaction to the extra tax put on the industry. The condition, making "Crabtown" a misnomer, has never been known to exist before. -- The Sun, July 2, 1918.

* Threshing crews have given Anne Arundel farmers notice that they will not attempt to thresh oats which have been cut with the mower and raked up with a horse rake. The problem is damage to the machinery caused by foreign matter in the oats and with repairs to machinery almost impossible to secure. -- The Sun, July 10, 1918.

* An election for seven commissioners at Arundel-on-the-Bay will include women voters who are property owners. The franchise for women was granted in a charter given 30 years ago. -- The Sun, July 15, 1918.
