Luxurious silk stockings and dainty lingeries which have completed terms of! service to feminine wearers need no longer be cast aside as just so imich rubbish. A new use In which charity is the beneficiary has been discovered for them. , It consists of their transformation into silk wall tapestries and rugs by the Inmates of the Illinois State hospital here. Mrs. Emma Bn.yne, chief occupational therapist at the institution, is the discoverer of the outlet for this variety of women's wearing apparel. As a result of this new use of worn hosiery and frayed lingeries Mrs. Bayne is being flooded with parcels from women's clubs and women's auxiliaries of the American Legion, containing these articles. With these materials to draw on, ex-soldiers and other patients here for treatment are being taught how to make tapestries and rugs. According to Mrs. Bayne this kind of occupation is most beneficial to patients on the theory, that "busy hands make for contented minds" and gives the unskilled worker a trade to follow when he leaves the institution. Their products, she said, are not made with a view to competing with outside industry. No sale, of their work is permitted. The articles are either used in the hospital here or sent to other institutions throughout the state. / One huge round rug which lay until recently just outside of the office of Governor L. L. Emmerson at Springfield, was an object of much admiration, was the product of occupational workers here. The stockings and lingerie received here are assorted according to grades and colors. Then the tops and feel are cut off and the stocking is cut ..hese. things are state institutions. The toys are reserved for a hrlstma» spree. i*Liai>H«un »('**•'*'• On Christmas eve under-privileged children of this community are the guests of the patients and officials. 31ose to 1,000 toys are given away at .his party.
