25 Years Ago

* A portrait of John Eager Howard hanging in a dining room of Government House in Annapolis, once valued at $100, has been discovered by art experts from the National Gallery of Art in Washington to be an original work by Thomas Sully valued "in six figures." -- The Sun, Feb. 3, 1969.

* A special police force of three was created today to provide security for the Anne Arundel General Hospital and to relieve the city's undermanned police department. -- The Sun, Feb. 7, 1969.

* It may prove illegal, but the Anne Arundel County Personnel Board voted tonight to give preferential hiring treatment to veterans. The plan sets 5-point bonuses for veterans or their widows and 10-point bonuses for disabled veterans or their widows. -- The Sun, Feb. 13, 1969.
