BEGIN BIC TOUR

from Berwick to Wilkes-Barre for the
night. The headquarters of the Har

Advantages of the Trip
This second annual trade extension
tour of the Chamber of Commerce be
gan with all those participating having
full understanding of exactly what? it
means to the individual business man
and to the city in general, bast year's
trip, which included York and Lebanon
and the important towns along the rail
roads between those places, proved of
lasting benefit, actual returns in cash
turning up as a direct result, during
the interval of the year.
This trip, as last year's, is crowded
with snrall' stops that do not permit
visits to all of the retailers who handle
Harrisbun,j goods, but most of the busi
ness men of these towns are members
of organizations which have under
taken the entertainment of the Harris
burg tourists. Old business acquaint
ances are being renewed, new ones
formed even in the brief time allotted.
This pilgrimage is for the purpose of
putting Harrisburg-made products on
the market and compelling purchasers
in a wide district, which can readily
be reached by daily freight out of Har
risburg, to recognize in Harrisburg a
buying center of no mean proportions.
These trips are destined to become as
much an institution in the Harrisburg
Chamber of Commerce as the bureau
which makes solicitors explain their
projects to the Chamber before getting
funds from its members.
The increased freight facilities grant
ed by the Pennsylvania railroad from
Harrisburg to Sunbury, make the visit
1 to the latter city especially important.
The Capital City merchants have tho
I chance to send perishable freight with
j the assurance that it will be off the
car by 10 o'clock the following morn
ing. The trip to Sun bury was therefore
I an imjMirtant one in the wake of that
j announcement by the Pennsv.
The officers of the Chamber worked
j hard to get as large a number as pos-
I sible of business men to take the trip,
| and the list shows representatives of
| large Harrisburg wholesalers and job
bers, whose selling territory is bound
j to be increased as a result of the tour.
