This is no time to
publish an announcement
on Safety Legion Clothes
for the young crowd.
As it is—just as soon as
the garments come in—they’re
gone—but this is not going
to be a talk on “scarcities”—or
the clothes themselves—
but just a bit about the people
of Swiss ancestory
who make “Safety Legion.”
They’re nice people to
know about.
Safety Legion Clothes are made
in BERNE. INDIANA.
The concern started about 40
years ago—making work
clothing—all kinds—a very
diversified line.
And then there crept into it—
a health dissatisfaction—
a “personality” was developed—
that expressed itself in doing
things differently—in
specializing—in
concentrating—in being not
just a maker in a highly
competitive field—
hut the “WINNER.”
“THE WINNER HOUSE”—
is the firm name.
The idea for Safety Legion
clothes was born some 14 years
ago. A schol bus accident
in Rochester, Indiana ... so
deeply affected a man in that
city that he dedicated his life
to “safety for children."

March—the month of rough and
boisterous weather is at hand
named after the ancient war god
Mars.
Legend has it that Mars was the
son of Jupiter and Juno, the king
and queen of the gods and was gen
erally represented in a shining suit
of armor, with a plumed helmet on
his head, a spear in one hand and a
shield in the other.
His chariot was driven by the god
dess of war, Bellona, who also
watched over his safety in battles
which were constantly raging on
earth.
During the great fight between the
gods and giants to decide who was
to rule the world, Mars was cap
tured by two of the giants who
bound him day and night, the legend
account narrates.
After a year of captivity he was
freed by clever god Mercury who
succeeded in loosening the chains so
silently that the giant heard no
sound.
Mars was loved by Venus, the
goddess of* beauty, but wishing to
keep their love a secret from the
other go^s, they met only at night
and Mars appointed his servant
Alectryon to keep watch and to call
him before the sun rose, as he did

not wish Apollo, the sun god, to
see him.
One night Alectryon fell asleep
and neglected to warn the lovers
and Apollo saw’ them from his char
iot. He caught them in a net of
steel and held them prisoners while
the other gods ridiculed them.
As soon as he was free, Mars,
who w’as angry with Alectryon for
failing his responsibility, changed
him into a cock and condemned him
to give warning every day of the
sun’s rising.
During wartime, the Romans turn
ed to Mars for help and protection.
Before setting out to battle, the Ro
man general w’ent into the temple oi
Mars and touched the sacred shield
w'ith the point of his spear and sup
plicated “Mars, watch over us.’’
The training ground of the Ro
man soldiers was called Campus

self led their army into battle and
helped to give them the victory.

the year than the name patterned
