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
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.
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
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.
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. *
