Dies After
Philadelphia, Dec. 12.-John Wana-j
maker, Philadelphia merchant prince
and philanthropist died at his homes
here at 8 o'clock this morning, fol-
lowing a brief illness._. Mr. Wana-
maker had been confined to his home
since late in November. He was 84
years old.
John Wanamaker, often called the
"miracle merchant", led in the crea-
tion of the department store as an in-
stitution in American life. At the
outbreak of the Civil War in 18611
when he began business for himself in
a humble way in Philadelphia, retail
merchandizing in this country was in
a disorganized state, and, in the opin-,
ixn of the far-sighted young merchant,
it was suffering a rapid decline
through practices that were then gen-

make money, "my paramount pur-
pose", said Mr. Wanamaker, "was to

In accordance with the ruling made

squad will be awarded sweaters with
their class numerals in Varsity col-l
ors, instead of the customary "R's"
which were dispensed last year.
This action has been takei follow-
ing the precedent set last year. when
the men were offered the choice of
the "R", or their class numerals. The
men chose the numerals. It is thought
that this form of reward is more ap-
propriate than the "R" in as much
that it distinguishes the men more
clearly with the Varsity squad, by1
rziving their class numerals in the
Maize and Blue colors.

awards that they were for the work
