By DAVIS CRIPPEN
The great Argyle question was
blasted wide open last week.
This question, for those of you
who may not have heard, is really
two-fold. First, Why do girls knit
argyle socks? anut second, Where
do they ever get the ideas for the
designs they knit in them?.
DOING THE blasting was Mrs.
Helena Van Akkeren (or just Mrs.
Van to her friends) who, as pro-
prietor of a N. University knit
shop, has sent numberless coeds
downhthe sock knitting path.
The answer to the first ques-
tion is fairly obvious, and then
again it isn't. Mrs. Van declar-
ed. The girls maize them for
things like Christmas presents,
of course, she said.
But there are also, she added
slyly, "a lot of them being made
when girls are fishing around for
J-Hop dates."
BUT THIS works the other way
around, with the boys doing the
deep planning. "Lots of times,"
Mrs. Van recalled, "boys have
come in and picked out the colors
they liked and then started dis-
cussing what girls they could get
to make the socks."
As for the different designs
immortalized in the socks, they
just seem to evolve, Mrs. Van
indicated.
The maize and blue numbers
sporting an "M" on the instep,
which are fairly common on cam-
pus, started "a couple of years"

ago in Mrs. Van's shop. Then a
coed came in last year and ordered
a pair for her father with his
class year on the back.
JUST LAST WEEK, another girl
came in and wanted to know how
to make a pair with the "M" and
the year, and in addition her boy
friend's fraternity letters on the
foot.
Mrs. Van herself invented
another sock style, the Cana-
dian or inverted "V" pattern,
by mistake. One time, she said,
she had been trying to knit ac-
cording to a difficult pattern
new to her.
"I GOT MIXED up in it," she
said simply, "and that style's what
came out."
But what of the future? Whither
Argyles?
The newest rage, Mrs. Van
says is to make argyle ties to
match the socks.
Mrs. Agnes Hoseney, co-worker
of Mrs. Van, added that there
were also a lot of baby argyles be-
ing knitted too.
"Yes," Mrs. Van interjected
quickly, "yes, but the girls don't
make them so much."
