Plan- Made by Pennsylvania Sen
a tor to Resume Active Partic
ipation in National Affairs.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 31. Senator
Penrose of Penn sylvan la, prominent
republican leader, signalized his re
turn to Washington and to public af
fairs, legislative and political, by giv
ing an interview, discussing; tariff
and other governmental affairs, re
ceiving a. few senators, posing for
motion pictures and preparing for
work in congress, next week. Illness
has kept the Pennsylvania senator
from Washington for a year, but to
day he indicated plans to resume
active participation in national af
fairs. The emergency tariff bill passed
recently by the house. Senator Pen
rose told newspapermen, will be
taken up early next week, possibly
Monday, by the senate finance com
mittee, of which he is chairman. The
senator added that he did not regard
the measure "with any amount of
enthusiasm." He also said that sol
diers' bonus legislation was "inti
mately involved" with general na
tional finances and indicated that he
favored consideration of some sort of
compensation legislation at the extra
session of congress to meet soon after
March 4.
President-elect Harding's cabinet
selections. Senator Penrose said, were
a personal matter for Senator Hard
ing. The Pennsylvania leader said
lie had no idea in that respect and
had taken little interest in reports
from Marion regarding international
questions. In this field, congress,
the senator said, would "blaze the
way" and would not take a pro
gramme from "any secretary of
state, no matter who he may be."
The principal evident of Senator
Penrose's long illness noted toda)
was a loss in weight.

In early days physician and patient alike were compelled to seek an
apothecary for the simplest remedy. ' Now the skilled practitioner is
prepared to meet almost any emergency; old hours of slavery for em
ployer and employes, long hours through day and night, coupled with
the service of a "night clerk," one elected to "sleep" within the store,
answer bell caJs for anything from a postage stamp to a porous plaster; evenings, nights, Sun
days, holidays, business days, have passed into history.
Twenty years ago our store, first on the Coast, inaugurated Sunday closing, and now in defer
ence to changed conditions of life, mindful of the health and well-being of our associates who
have helped create our present business fabric, and the great body of patrons who have faith
fully, through these years, shown us their preference in all personal and family needs having
to do with our calling, we take this step, one based upon principles of justice to our associates
and in harmony with sound business methods.
There is need for night and evening service. For this there are in our
city stores properly featuring this phase of the apothecary's calling.
We are deeply grateful for the material rewards which have
come to the principals of this business through the forty
years of joint service they have sought to render this com
munity. Our business and its home, our associates, num
bering over 250 loyal hearts, the material support of the
people of this great city and beyond, prompts an acknowl
edgment of sincere gratitude and appreciation.
