Merrill and Byham Barred From Western Maryland College Club -- According to word from Athletic Director Ken Shroyer, of Western Maryland College, Leroy Byham and Cary Merrill, grid stars, have been declared ineligible for football next fall. Both men, it is said, violated one of the clauses of the new athletic code adopted by the college this year. The reason for their being placed on the blacklist is due to the fact that both men violated the professional baseball clause. Byham played in the Western Association, while Merrill is in the Blue Ride League. Both men are pitchers.

The carnival and festival at Hampstead, on Saturday last, were largely attended, it being estimated that not less than 3,000 persons were present during the day and evening. The organizations which participated in the parade were: the Hampstead and Manchester Fire Companies; Hampstead Council, Jr. O.U.A.M.; Red Jacket Tribe, I.O.R.M., of Hampstead; the Carroll County Military Company of Frizellburg; Pleasant Hill and Rayville Bands. The route of the procession was through the town and to a grove about one-fourth of a mile from the corporate limits, where a dinner was served for the benefit of the Hampstead Fire Company. The Carroll County Military Company gave an exhibition drill and engaged in a sham battle, which were quite interesting to the many spectators present. Among the amusements were goose-pulling and pie-eating contests, which excited great laughter. The financial part of the event was quite successful, the net receipts having been about $173.
