Lining Fabrics For Men's Suits Made Available . The Civilian Production Administration is doing everything possible to increase the number of available low priced men's suits. Miss Cora Lee Coleman, home demonstration assent, reports. Recently, tens of thousands of men's suits wore, being held u]> waiting for lining materials, but now CPA I 'is diverting all rayon fabrics suit- [ able for linings from less essen- j tial purposes to this use. Also, the' Surplus l-'/operty Administration has released about five and a half million yards of surplus lining materials to garment manufacturers, she said. Some of this surplus material is nylon fabric. By giving a 10 per cent increase in price on all rayon lining fabrics produced over a certain quota, rayon manufacturers arc beim< encouraged to make as much lining material as possible. These two actions should result in sufficiejil lining fabric for all men's suits manufactured the first half of the year. Miss Colemnn said, and should give consumers more suits sooner. Another help given manufacturers is priority on fabrics suitable for low cost suits. Even with this assistance, however, the demand will outnumber this year's supply, she added. The demand for suits this year will reach 40 million, while the estimated maximum production will not be more than 30 million. The peak demand in prewar years was 20 million suits a year. Lack of labor in the spinning and weaving mills, as well shortage of labor in the garment trade, are cutting down the number of suits being produced, the home demonstration agent stated. smoking pipe for women? Surely you couldn't have meant the bubble gun (pull the trigger and out comes bubbles)? j Did you ever set'in an argument ! with an Inventor. Kenyon? I bei lieve you're heading for trouble. j Peter 3. Gilchrist of Charlotte, i N. C.. Invented the bubble gun. f and he claims a lot ,of people want I to shoot soap bubbles. Can the government prove, they don't? Consider the Pipe for ladies, as invented by William Arnold of Washington. D. C. If enough ladies lake to briar pipes (and who Is the patent office to say they won't?) He's goinp; lo make a fortune. As for Henry Singer of Honolulu, he obviously has filled a long- felt want with his attachment for toothbrushes. Haven't yon, Kenyon, dribbled toothpaste on your paws and wished for a drip cup (patent number 2 364,640) to stop this? The self-illuminated window shade for steam cars came from Limlsey Echepmoes. of New Haven, Conn. Obviously it makes 'em lighter at night. You got a lawn in front of your house. Kenyon? Then the sprinkler that uses its own hose for a track ami creeps along it. as developed by Gils Covey of North plattc, Neb., ought to be of real value. It even shuts itself off at the end of the line. The patent office, itself, probably could use a few of Wayne M. Andrews' combination pocket adding machines and mechamcnl lead pencils, which he developed his new York laboratories and \vhicii should be helpful for counl- ing patent applications. Anthony J. Miller lives in Chicago, where he invented the streamlined Roller Skates. You say Kenyon, so .what? They so faster, of course. Kenneth E. Bemish of Oakland, Calif.. produced the patty former and wrapper and anybody using a lot of hamburgers, like LIP Abner, for instance. Execution Date Set For Memphis Negro Farmhand •MEMPHIS. Temi..
