, PACE EIGHT, THE LANDMARK. STATESVILLE, N. C. omens MpNDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1928. o cws and ,-BlJ^ Overalls tvt Wowen Gain Favor in Mil! « New Bedford, Mass. -- A few years ago it was smocks. Now it's overalls for women. Overalls as a working) costume for women in cotton mills not only are approved but suggested by one of the cotton 'mills of this -textile city and Fall Hiver. It is a safety measure, intended to obviate the danger of dresses catching in moving machinery. The women workers have reacted favorably and many .already have donned this working costume of Girl Star-Gazer Now Specialist The spectacle of overalted -women trudging to and from work through the -streets is t*ot part of the picture i yet, however. The overalls are seldom worn, outside the factory. | Wearing of the garments is volun- 1 tary." Several styles and colors arej available. They may be unbleached white, khaki or regulation blue. A [ sample costume shown may be worn either full length and reaching to the ankles, or bloomer style, buttoned tightly around the knees.
