Reunion for Earp clan

"Annual Reunion of Earp Clan Sunday

"Professor Edwin L. Earp, who retired from Drew University, Madison, N. J. two years ago, will preach at the Melville Methodist Church in Elkridge at 8 o'clock on Sunday.

"The occasion will be the annual reunion of the Earp clan, of which there are many members in Howard county. Professor Earp, who is the brother of the late A. Howard Earp, was born at Orange Grove and lived for many years at Guilford in Howard County.

"In addition to preaching and writing, Prof. Earp has as his hobby, the collection of unusual canes of which he now has several hundred."

From the "Star Dust" column: "Bette Davis has shown once again that she's not afraid of competition: She's glad to have Mary Astor play the second feminine lead in 'Far Horizon,' though she says herself that the role is equal in importance to her own. Incidentally, Warner Brothers have taken up an option on a long-term contract for Miss Astor."

Disquietude amongst Republicans


"C. H. Oldfield Now Leader Republicans: Republican County Convention Held At Ellicott City Last Saturday Marks Taking Of Last Trench By Oldfield Factions For Control Of Party In This County; Eighteen White Men and Twelve Negroes Nominate Ticket

"All has not been serene in Republican politics in this county for some little while. Ever since the picturesque exit of Senator George Dorsey Day from the Republican managerial board some few years ago there has been unrest and disquietude amongst the Republican politicians.

"Ever since Uncle George 'flew the coop,' Clarence Oldfield was always supposed to have been the local leader, but there has always been sufficient opposition to this leadership from time to time, especially about election time, to make things interesting and to raise some doubts in the minds of casual observers as to just who the leader actually was.

"New things seem to be pretty well defined along that line. Colonel Macklin was the titular leader of the Republican party in this county till he resigned."

From the Court House column:
