From Wednesday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon Emil J. Wey
rich returned home from a visit of
some two weeks in the east where he
visited among other places the great
Thomas A. Edison plant at Orange,
New Jersey, the Eastman Kodak Co.
at Rochester. New York, and also the
Bau.sch-Lomb Optical Co. plant at
Rochester as well.
This trip was one that
binc-d business as well as
fir 'Mr. Weyrich and lie
fullest advantage of the occasion to
view :he many points of interest and
particularly the large industries
whose products are handled here by
the firm of Weyrich & Hadraba.
He first went direct to New York
and between the trip across the Hud
son to the Edison plant at Orange,
he found time to view the great city
of the western hemisphere. At Or
ange he visited the Kdison establish
ment at thoroughly as the regula
tions would permit an dwas able to
enjoy a trip through the private lab
ratory of Mr. Edison and to see the
wizard of the present age in his
work. Mr. Weyrich was taken thru
the entire processes that are re'iuiied
in the building of one of the marvel
ous Edison instruments that have
added a great chapter to the re-creation
anl preservation of the human
voice and the musical instruments,
in the record that is used on the
Edison phonograph and the wonder
ful processes by which the repro
ducing machinery is made was cer
tainly one that will long be remem
bered. He was also in the department
where the diamond style grinding is
carried on and where the points are
prepared for placing in the Edison
instrument.;. The record pressing fle
partment was closed at the time Mr.
Weyrich was at Orange and he was
unable to see what ho desired oi
this branch of the work, but this
department is always closed as many
of the processes used are secret.
At Kodak. Park at Rochester he
witnessed the malting of the kodaks
and other machines of the Eastman
company, being shown over the us
ual route of the idle sightseer and
in addition getting an insight

also have their own plant foi paper

graphic print paper are turned out
all ready for patrons.
At the IJaiisch-I-rfHJib Optical com
pany plant which is the largest op
tical goods plant in the world, Mr.
Weyrich found that the company
have developed their processes so
that they manufacture their own op
tical glas and are no longer depend
ent on Germany for glass as they
were in the past.
While on his trip Mr. Weyrich
secured some 200 snap shots which
he will soon have on exhibition at
