Three hundred members of the Bailey, Banks & Biddle Co. Welfare Association, composed of employes of the Bailey, Banks & Biddle store at 13th and Chestnut Sts, cast business cares aside and spent a frolicsome day—their annual field—at the North-east Shrine Club, Fox Chase, last Saturday. Reaching the club grounds in early afternoon the pleasure-bent throng set about at once in making the most of the gala day. The first round of the sports program was the baseball game in which the store department crossed bats with the manufacturing department. After a thrilling battle in which each department team led the race at times the manufacturing department won out by a one-run margin, the final score being 10 to 9. After spirited competition among men and women, boys and girls in the other events of the afternoon, in which handsome prizes were given, the picknickers gathered at the club house for the supper and evening program. One of the outstanding features of the evening program was the presentation by the president of the welfare association, H. Peck, to three new officers of the Bailey, Banks & Biddle Co., of baskets of flowers. The recipients of the tokens of esteem from the association were Mr. Hilsee, president; Mr. Alexander, vice-president and treasurer, and Mr. Hood, secretary. These officers have been in office a comparatively short time following a reorganization the company. At the same time the beautiful prizes, won by the various contestants during the afternoon, were awarded. Dancing was the chief evening diversion. A seven-piece orchestra furnished the music In the course of the evening’s entertainment the officers of the company, who were presented with flowers, gave short talks. The affair was in charge of Mr. Peck and various committees of the association. A special train was chartered for the party.

The death in Cambridge, England, last week of Countess de Sibour, daughter of Joseph T. Bailey, president of the Bailey, banks & Biddle Co., caused a great shock among friends here. On Oct. 21 the jewelry store of the compamy was closed during the celebration of a solemn requiem mass held in St. Patrick’s Church. The countess before her marriage in 1890 was popular in society circles in this city as Miss Katheryn Bailey. After her marriage she went to France. She left two sons, both of whom are fighting in France. It was while her sons were going to school that the countess took a residence in England that she might be near them at Elton.
