75 Years Ago

* The most powerful radio station in the United States, and perhaps the world, is now in full operation and located in Annapolis. Secretary of the Navy Daniels was present for the opening when messages were flashed to the Allied nations engaged in the great world conflict. -- The Sun, Sept. 12, 1918.

* The Naval Academy will maintain football under war conditions this year. Coach Gilmour Dobie sent 60 men to the training table, including 13 members of the new class. The football players get the same fare as other Midshipmen, but somewhat more liberally. -- The Sun, Sept. 24, 1918.

* Spanish flu, rampant throughout the nation, has resulted in a quarantine of the 400 students at St. John's College. Students who had not arrived were uncertain whether to return to the school or stay at home. -- The Sun, Sept. 30, 1918.
