If you can Invent a new nnd better kind of diaper, nursing hot- He, baby carriage.or toy, you're in the chips. The small customers are ready and waiting to put your product over the top. Marlon Donovan may not have had all this in mind when she invented a new kind of leak-proof illnpcr cover a few years ago. She wns more concerned with making her own baby daughter, Sharon, socially iicceplitblc. A career girl fran Indiana, Marlon had workc.-l on New York fashion magazines before . her marriage to .Tim Donovan during Ihe war. After the second baby arrived and Jim came back from overse'as, they moved to Connecticut and Marlon, settled down to bccoma.H housewife and mother. 1 f. nut .yo.U can't keep a career girl down.';; Marion ...couldn't find the kind fj'fTldiapcr she: wanted '^or. Sharon;- so slie decided W make one herself, Sh'e began by cutting up most of the shower curtains In the-house, For come time husband Jim had to take tiib baths. ·Vnnlly Marion perfected the ;rn of a diaper cover which was leak-proof at both legs and waistband, applied snap fasteners, and put It in action. When she saw how well It worked on Sharon, she cxpcrl- fn«hted with other materials, In- eluding rubber, plastic, rayon am nylon, Then she decided 'to pu her simple new invention on tin market. Jim, a sailing enthusiast, sup piled the' name. Said he: , "Call it boater, because, like a good'boat, .It's leak-proof." "Marion, an.(Irish beauty with blue. eyes, and shining black hair went at the job thoroughly.' Shi measured babies weekly at Belle, vue Hospital to achieve correc sizing. She tried out sample diapers on all the babies In Connecticut whose mothers she 1 knew. Then she contracted to have Ihe 'product maufacturcd. She made the diaper covers In pastels anc polka dots. The first year sales passed a million. Recently she sold her patent t a Shclbyvlllo, Ind., firm, for L million dollars, according to Harry Hanson, president of the Kennedy Company, which bought it. Now the Donovans have a third baby, and goodness · knows what Marion will invent next. At any rate ulic has discovered that there's a gold mine in bablei.
