Sessions of the Court of Inquiry named by the Secretary of the Navy to investigate drinking among students at the Naval Academy will begin in Annapolis Monday. -- The Sun, Dec. 1, 1922.

The position of postmaster at Annapolis will be filled by open competitive examination instead of political appointment. The salary is $3,400 per annum. The vacancy is caused by the death of Thomas J. Linthicum, who held office for eight years. -- The Sun, Dec. 28, 1922.
