They were a group of prominent African-American educators - deans of Morgan State College and city schools administrators - pillars of their community searching for advice on how to grow their meager savings. In 1931, in the face of the Great Depression and segregation that kept blacks virtually shut out of Baltimore's mainstream banks and investment houses, the men stepped out on their own, pooled their money and founded an elite investment club. Seventy-five years later, the Club of Baltimore, as it is simply known, still meets in all its tradition and regalia.

Charles W. Bray III, 72, who was press secretary for Secretary of State William P. Rogers during tumultuous times in the Nixon administration, died of pneumonia Sunday at his home in Milwaukee. Mr. Bray, who later became an ambassador, was the State Department's chief spokesman for much of the Vietnam War and during border disputes between India and Pakistan and continuing American tensions with the Soviet Union. But President Richard M. Nixon had come to rely more heavily on the counsel of his national security adviser, Henry A. Kissinger, than on the State Department.

Faced with a "stacked house" of angry constituents at their final meeting before Election Day, members of the Aberdeen City Council refrained from re-election posturing and instead licked their wounds from a barrage of attacks that have set the stage for the city's most contentious election to date. Critics of the mayor and much of the council have been able to portray contention over police salaries and the firing of two city employees as indicative of broader leadership problems - a view that was hammered home again at Monday's council meeting.
