When asked about the number of baths and returns from the chewing gum and weighing machines, the councilman said: "The receipts from these are not exactly what we expected, but as I said, the people are only learning f these facilities and if things keep up the way they have been going over the past weekend, we expect that the big months will overbalance the small ones. We expect to prove to the people that the comfort station is self - supporting." Mr. Yeager also added that Har - risburg had requested pictures of the local comfort station, due to the fact that the council of the Capitol city is considering the construction of one. This station will be along practically the same lines as Reading's. When the Allentown Mtion was finished, it was reputed to be the largest and neatest in the country. The local station with 600 square feet of floor space, is larger than that at Allen - town. Mr. Yeager said also, "many travelling men have come to me and said that this station was not only a neater station than those in other ciles, but prettier and better furnished. Reading people ought to be proud of this improvement."
