(AP) — Senator Mycr ID-Pa) was told yesterday now a wool carpet is made partly with cotton. The Pennsylvania!! alone held a Senate Interstate Commerce subcommittee hen-ing on a proiwsal to requite identification of cotton pro- duns for the protection and benefit of producers and consmnerfi. W. Lyle Holmes, president of Archibald Holmes and Sons, Philadelphia, spoke for the carpet Institute against proposed cotton labeling legislation. Holmes showed the senator samples of woo! carpets made with cot- | Ion backing—the kind of carpet [ you'd like to buy to replace that' worn one In the front room. Holmes also took him verbally through the carpet-making proce.ss. "A carpel back," he said, "is quite complicated. The back of a carpet is made of cotton and Jute. It is almost never composed of wool, or partly of woo), because of mechanical ui'JUilability of wool to this purpose. "Wool will not do," lie said. Cotton OIvpj SlreiiElli Holmes added that: "1. Cotton is employed in the oack of a carpet where construction requires strength, elasticity or stretch inri a little bull'.. "2. Oi It Is used in very heavy yarns which must possess strength, elasticity and bulk. "3. Jute is employed where stiffness, strength, .uon-stretchability and bulk are required." One carpel, he said, requires just about as much backing a* another. "This Is not done from a desire to deceive the consumer, but because a study back is necessary to hold any kind of pile in place," he said. 'The proportion of cotton used." he insisted, "has no bearing on the quAllty at the carpet or rug." Dr. Ernest F. Tittle, Methodist Leader, Dies EVANSTON. III., Aug. 4. tlTt— Til* Rev.
