Comfort Station Plans Modified Modification of the plans for im provements at the Fifth and Penn streets comfort station appeared likely yesterday after a conference of councilmen in Mayor Stump's office. The plans call for a one - story structure on the sidewalk to house the entrances to the station, a design opposed by merchants and property owners. The height of the building, it was clafmed, would interfere with window displays, and its width would take up too much sidewalk space. It was agreed that the plans should be altered to provide only for wider entrances to the two basements, and to eliminate a pro - prosed building on the sidewalk. The improvements call also for better ventilation.
