Harry Morris Visits New York

"In an interview with Harry Morris, of Morris, Mann & Reilly, Chicago, Mr. Morris became quite enthusiastic about some of the new patented handbag numbers which the "finm will show in a very short time.
Discussing conditions brought about by the war, Mr. Morris mentioned that his firm was sending its line with a representative to key cities. Buyers are invited to come in to view the line and, incidentally their expenses are paid.
Mr. Morris stated that his firm had reached an agreement with workers and that a salary increase had been put into effect. He also remarked that 100% of the employees were buying War Bonds through the payroll deduction plan."
