James D. Helt
Among the reputable and successful young business men of Lykens that have had a profitable business here, there are perhaps none deserving of more special mention that Mr. J. D. Helt. Mr. Helt was born in Jackson Township. He entered in business in the year 1909 identifying himself with Mr. J. S. Reiff in the furniture and undertaking business. His rapid strides have only been the direct result of careful methods and keen decisions. Today he is a director of several of the valley’s largest enterprises. He has been elected a school director of Lykens Borough in 1922 and is a member of the Blue Lodge, Masonic Order.
