25 Years Ago

* Astronauts James Lowell and William Anders, who orbited the moon on the recent Apollo 8 flight, will present a Naval Academy flag that made the trip with them to the academy's 4,000 #F midshipmen. Both men are Naval Academy graduates. -- The Sun, April 3, 1969.

* Anne Arundel County Executive Joseph Alton, Jr., said today that his administration may never be able to construct sanitary landfills in the northern section of the county because of the dense population. Instead, a system of incinerators may be needed. The county executive also announced he will ask the council to cut about $10 million from the county's estimated operating budget for 1970. He has promised not to allow property taxes to exceed $3 for each $100 of assessed value. -- The Sun, April 9, 1969.
