100 Years Ago – 1918: Visit Heroy’s, tea and cof­fee spe­cial­ists, at Sev­enth and Welsh streets for pure cof­fee at 18 cents per pound and good mixed or black tea for 35 cents per pound. Cof­fee roasted while you wait.

75 Years Ago – 1943: Chester has raised a third of its $12,000,000 Third War Loan quota, push­ing the Delaware County to­tal to about one-fourth of the $21,000,000 goal in a cam­paign that lead­ers say is be­ing sup­ported with an en­thu­si­asm far ex­ceed­ing that which was shown in the first and sec­ond War Loan drives. The banks and post of­fices were re­ported snowed un­der with bonds to be filled out, as new or­ders flowed in from Blue Star Brigade work­ers in the neigh­bor­hoods, from the man­agers of the Chester and Delaware County the­atres who are stag­ing a half-mil­lion-dol­lar War Bond Pre­mier on Sept. 22, in the Stan­ley Theatre, and from vol­un­teer bond sell­ers in the re­tail stores and in­dus­tries.

Arends (R-Ill.) ac­cused the JohnHumphrey ad­min­is­tra­tion Fri­day night of lead­ing the na­tion to “the very brink of dis­as­ter.” And he told more than 1,000 en­thu­si­as­tic Delaware County Repub­li­cans the elec­tion of Richard Nixon and Spiro T. Agnew will end the cri­sis. Arends at­tacked the Democratic lead­er­ship at a fundrais­ing din­ner at the Alpine Inn, Spring­field, for U.S. Rep. Lawrence G. Wil­liams (R-7).

25 Years Ago – 1993: The

158civil­ian en­force­ment of­fi­cers of Pennsylvania Liquor Con­trol En­force­ment Bureau have their hands full con­duct­ing bor­der pa­trols for liquor law vi­o­la­tors and mon­i­tor­ing some 20,000li­censed es­tab­lish­ments rang­ing from bars to restau­rants. Since July 1, 1987, when the bureau was formed, some 915peo­ple have been ar­rested for buy­ing al­co­holic bev­er­ages across state lines and bring­ing them back to Pennsylvania, ac­cord­ing to state po­lice Ma­jor Wil­liam Mer­i­cle, di­rec­tor of the bureau. Lit­tle known to many of­fend­ers – most of whom are not har­dened crim­i­nals, but peo­ple just try­ing to save money, he said, is that “your ve­hi­cle is sub­ject to con­fis­ca­tion and for­fei­ture,” Mer­i­cle said.
