"WTiat to do with discarded theatri
cal costumes that cannot be "redone"
for next season, a question that has
troubled show managers since the
drama was In Its Infancy, Is answered
today by Miss Harlle Mayne. sons; bird
of "The Golden Crook" company, play
lnr the Gayety Theater this week.
Miss Mayne thinks the odds and
ends of costumes, especially tights
and flimsy lingerie that many enter
tainers wear for a season, should be
made up Into useful presents for
American soldiers who have gone to
the trenches in France. To prove her
Idea Is not based on theory alone,
Miss Mayne has made kits of silk In
which Uncle Sam's fighters can keep
their trinkets, souvenir, and tldiblts
from home. Thousands of yards of
silk go to waste every year, or Be;
terlorate so badly that they are of
small value', when the season's cos
tumes are laid aside, according1 to Miss
Mayne
"Discarded tights make the best
kits and holders Imaginable." said the
burlesque prima donna today. "Some
old silk, a needle and thread, and a
little spare time, will make many a
pretty and useful trinket for the boys
over there.'"
Mils Mayne has figured that If every
feminine principal on the Columbia
burlesque wheel would devote her
leisure moments to making things for
the troops from discarded garments
the work of the Red Cross in this
respect would be greatly lessened.

How can you save wool ?

SAVING wool is one of the things the country,
needs, and it's one of the things you can do
The best way to save wool is to stop wasting it;
fabrics that don't give long wear are not econ
omy; they're waste
, The economy is in the service that all-wool
fabrics giye; such clothes wear so much longer,
and look so much better, that even at the higher
price they cost less; and waste less
That's why we make our clothes of all-wool fab
rics; they save in service Our label is the sign;
a small thing to look for, a big thing to find
