PLEASE By PATSY GRAVES for the AN'P LITTLE ONES, big ones, bird ones, crooked ones, straight ones, all sizes, shapes and kinds. They’re In the news, and how\ Legs. The silk that used to make stockings won’t be doing that no more, cause Uncle Sam needs it for something else. So now is the time for every good leg to come to the aid of its country. WHAT ARE stockings made from? Not like ladies, from sugar and spice and everything nice, but from silk, nylon, cotton, and ray on. And here is the “situachun”. Silk is used for certain types of parachutes. Nylon is useful for the same purpose. Rayon is made from chemicals, and some of those chem icals are needed to make munitions. Cotton, of the extra long staple va riety used for sheer hosiery, is needed for military purposes. Be sides, there Isn’t much of that kind of cotton available. SO WHAT? There is no super abundance of any material immed- I lately available for making hosiery, ] so there will naturally be fewer made. But taken altogether the present supplies of rayon, cotton, and nylon can be knitted into a great many stockings yet awhile. STOCKINGS were always a pain In the neck anyhow. Like their wearers, they are the most unpre dictable things on earth. As uncer tain as the weather, as tenfpera mental as an opera star. Haven’t we all had that last pair blues? Now that we must help stretch the available supply here are a few hints on the care of stockings. Buy stockings according to the weight for which they will be used. They are not bought by the pound, but by the thread. TWO-THREAD. This is an ex tra sheer hose, the cobwebby kind that you know you can’t afford but that the woman in you just craves. Should be used for very special oc casions. Not for the Annual Ball of the Pansy Leaf Social Club. With your long evening dress, that’s a good time not to wear any stock ings at an. THREE-THREADS. These are still in the luxury class, but are Just a little heavier than the 2 thread. They don’t hold up for hard wear such as a stocking takes when j you do a lot of walking, or jitter- I bugging, but they do look nice for i afternoon or informal evening j wear. For this purpose, the lace and mess hose are highly suitable. And ! listen, the Bureau of Home Eco nomlcs has planned more than 100 designs for cotton hosiery among which are many attractive novelty I patterns that may be used for dress j wear. FOUR THREAD. This is a medi- ! um weight hose, neither very thin nor very thick. These will econom- : ically answer the purposes of the average woman. FIVE, SIX, SEVEN THREAD. These are quite thick, and are suit able for the hardest wear. For whatever purpose you buy them, and from whatever materials they are made, hose will not wear well if they are too large or too small for your feet. Putting the biggest number on the outside is a good rule of stockings as well as shoes. A DOZEN PAIRS or no pairs, just pieces. Do wash them careful ly after every wearing. Wear shoes that fit your feet. They will save your stockings, your good looks, and your disposition. Don’t wear rcugh shoe linings. Put on your stockings carefully. AND DON’T GET excited be cause there will probably be a scarcity of stockings. That ain’t no I problem. There were legs before j there were stockings and there’ll be j legs when all the stockings are I gone. You’ll get along. * Honored At Reception MRS.
