reau consists of twenty-five women

Women have always been interested
in trying to cover their legs with as
little as possible. Silk stockings, ac-
cording tolegend, first knit for Queen
Elizabeth, were at first opaque but
by 1940 two-thread stockings were
practically invisible. Some scientific
genius then invented nylon, and a
million women rose up and called him
blessed. They also rose up and
stormed any counter where these mir-
aculously sheer, yet durable, hose
could be bought.
No Silk-No Stockings
With the advent of the war, our

supply of silk was suddenly cut off,
and nylon went into parachutes. Am-
erican women found themselves fac-
ed with the dispiriting prospect of
having to wear rayon stockings for
the duration. Rayon stockings make!
the loveliest legs look coppef -plated,
and they show unpleasant tendencies'
to sag, stretch, and wrinkle, espe-
cially in warm weather.
Hurrah For Leg-Make Up
In this moment of crisis, another
scientific genius thought up leg make-
up. The idea caught on like wildfire,
and within one summer women all

over the country were happily paint-
ing their stockings on.
Leg make-up does not sag, stretch.
or wrinkle. No special devices are
needed to hold it up. It does not re-
quire laundering, and does not run,
as most varieties can be removed only
with soap and water.
Practically every cosmetic manu-
facturer in the country makes leg
make-up, and many varieties are very
smooth and easy to put on. Now that
the warm weather has arrived, Ann
Arbor coeds can discard clumsy wool
socks and loafers or saddle shoes for
leg makeup and gay play-shoes.
