The molecular engineers who created the synthetic out of the elements of coal, air and water may have received their thanks from the women who were grateful for better hosiery, but at the same time they gave the nation a building material for an amazing variety of key military equipment. Parachutes today take the largest amount of nylon. Fabric development experts, working In collaboration with the air corps and weavers, have designed not only the cloth used In standard weight escape chutes for the air corps and para-troop detachment.'!, but have produced a number of other types of parachute cloths. Special Clolh for Cargo 'Chutes There Is an extra-tough special weave cloth for cargo parachutes. Other nylon chutes have been made experimentally for dropping fragmentation bombs and star shells. A very light fabric, with periodic heavier threads to act a rip-stops, has been woven to provide a mote compact chut for bomber crew members who work In close quarters. Nylon In rope form was developed three years ago, wheh It was produced for on-the-fly airmail pickup. Its combination of 'lightness, strength and elasticity adapted it to the sudden shock of contact between the grab-hook of the plane and the mall container.

Pour dozen experimental bomber tires were sent to Wright Held shortly before Pearl Harbor, and many of these saw action in the Pacific war zone. Nylon bristles were first seen by the public in toothbrushes In the autumn of 1938. Today tney are De-ing used for gun swabs and shell cleaning brushes.

Nylon, in time, may help aolve the problem of a suitable tropical boot or shoe. In recent war tesls in Panama, nylon laces came through without a break, and a heavy canvas-type nylon cloth has been proposed lor use in shoe uppers. The army quartermaster corps has developed a pup tent of the fabric that Is only half the weight of the conventional type Finally, nylon cloth of a very fine weave is used for filters in preparing blood plasma for transfusions on the battle fronts, and small nylon filter bags have been adopted for transfusion kite at the Philadelphia General hospital, one of the largest in the country. The synthetic filters have advantages over other filter materials In that they are inexpensive, do not clog, and are easy to clean.

Their center was blocked east of Narofominsk. Their right arm was stopped before Kashira. They dangled awkwardly, in danger. The Kussians' hour to strike, with their full, force, had come. The Red army launched its coun ter-offensive on December 6 .By December 11, it had achieved these results: The German flanks were broken, their center rolled back, their campaign ruined.
