Elmer Wentz Retires When a man retires after a hall century in business, it Is all the more gratifying when, as in the case of Elmer E. Wentz, he can view the past with deep satisfaction. In the 48 years in which he has been active in the feed and coal business in Lock Haven, he pursued a course which won for him not only considerable success in a financial way but something perhaps greater—the friendship and trust of thousands of people with whom he had any dealings. Starting in business on Corning St., at a point where the Lock Haven Auto Co. is now located, Mr. Wentz gradually developed his establishment, later acquiring the First St location where he has spent most of his active business life. He never did business in a spectacular way. Indeed, his unobtrusive character and personality were carried out in his store, where he quietly conducted operations in accord with his principles. Mr. Wentz was never much of of a "joiner." He enjoys his membership in the Kiwanis Club, of •which he is a charter member, but that is the extent of his civic affiliations. For many years he has been a faithful member of and attendant at the Trinity Methodist Church and is on the church official board. * * *,
