Philadelphia Division Super
intendent Gets Ideas How
to Prevent Detentions
■ I
How best to keep passenger trains
on time, was the one topic that re
ceived attention last night at the
meeting of the Friendship and Co
operative Club. The attendance was
not large but the discussions were in
teresting and timely.
The subject was introduced by Wil
liam Elmer, superintendent of the
Philadelphia division, Pennsylvania
railroad. He has been quite promi
nent in working out this problem.
Detention of trains due to rack of
serviceable motive power has been a
source of annoyance to officials on
the main line of the Pennsy. Su
perintendent Elmer has been work
ing out a remedy and is not onl>
doing good work on his division, hut
his ideas are being worked out suc
tendent Elmer said insrdlutaolouo
cessfully on other branches. Super
intendent Elmer, said in part:
•'We are doing our very best to
serve the public satisfactorily, and
ihere has been some improvement,
but there is still hard work ahead.
We must have co-operation and in
creased efficiency. I will welcome
any suggestions the men may offer.
Railroads Handicapped
"The railroads have been handi
capped because of engine short
age Just now there are many extra
trains and this eats up the motive
power. There may be some relief
when the soldier trains decrease. At
times we nre obliged to use freight
engines on some trains. However,
what we need now is engines that
will keep in service and I would like
to know the best way to get them.
Numerous suggestions were offer
ed Ruperintender.-t Elmer by Charles
J McCombs, engine dispatcher; A.
W. McClellan. assistant superinten
dent of the Philadelphia division:
Graffus Drake, William Drake, Wil
liam McClintock. passenger engi
neers- P. 1.. Smith, passenger fire
man: L. C. Clemsor.% retired road
foreman of engines: A. L. Redmond,
engineer at Enola.
Change Meeting Nights
One suggestion offered was to have
officials connected with the various
departments ride the engines and
keep a record of results. Another
was to have pink slips filled out by
engineers, giving his own version
of the. mishaps and delays. Super
intendent Elmer made note of the
suggestions and will work them out.
It was decided at last n-ight's meet
ing to meet on the last Thursday
of each month, and to cut out the
July and August meetings. A
committee was named to prepare for
a big opening in September. It is
proposed to secure prominent speak
ers and to have a public meeting to
which employes of all branches will
be invited. This committee in
P. L. Smith, chairman; Charles
McCombs, William R. Denehey, Wil
liam McClintock, and Wellington G.
Jones. This committee will act
jointly with the committee on en
tertainment in providing an attrac
tive program.
Soldiers Return to Job as
Middle Division Firemen
B. F. Gur.-derman, who recently
returned from overseas where he
served in the 79th division, has been
given his old position back on the
Middle division. He is a fireman
and was assigned to the crew with
Joseph Hunter as engineer. Fire
man Gun-derman is one of the most
popular young employes of the Mid
dle division and will resume his du
ties on Monday.
Another Good Record Made
in Coal Conservation Plan
Inspectors along the Middle divi
sion yesterday watching the big en
gine. No. 3,565, haul train No. 30
east, reported a notable absence
of smoke. One inspector put it,
"she looked like an electric engine."
There was a reason. The coal sav
ing record breakers were at work, A.
K. Brenncman, engineman and P. L.
Smith, fireman. Traveling the 132
miles with 11 steel cars this train
came to Harrisburg or, time on 165
shovels of coal, a total of 2,808

Hershey House to Close
Monday After Many Years
of Service in the City
With the dosing of the Hershey
House next Monday night, one of
the oldest hotels in the city will dis
continue business. To-day the fur
nishings in thirteen rooms in an ad
joining building, which had been
rented for hotel purposes, were dis
posed of at public sale by D. U. Her
shey, the present proprietor.
Last night the diningroom closed,
and next Monday night the bar and
the hotel will close. The property'
has been purchased by S. A. Greene,
and it is understood that Philadel
phia businessmen are bidding for
the location for a store.
The Hershey House was started
many years ago and hi April, 1881,
Harry E. Hershey, father of D. U.
Hershey, first began to conduct the
hotel. In 1900 his son took over the
management and has been ln charge
ever since.
Many other hotel proprietors ln
the city und vicinity are renewing
their liquor licenses for the month
of July, about, eighty having paid
the monthly license fee to County
Treasurer Mark Mumma. Early in
the year five others paid fees for
the entire license year,
It is understood that the hotelmeu
are hoping for action rescinding the
war-time prohibition, at least In
part, and want to be prepared to
start selling intoxicants again as
soon as the ban would be lifted.
For that reason, it is said, the
licenses are being paid.
