THE CAPITAL JOURNAL WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY 11. 1920.
A large and representative audience
Mled the auditorium of the Commer

Textiles." He was brought to Balem

yearly program. .
sir. Babcock went Into interesting
detail, dealing almost altogether with
American-made fabrics. He treated
Xiiaaf of the hi out beautiful and sue
Cdsaful productions .Illustrating his re
mark with, generous samples. He
said the war had developed the indus

tiles, heretofore being imported. He
pronounced home-made goods equal
i every way to foreign-made. Our
designs, materials, color combinations
and even the colors themselves bad

while not guaranteed to be permanent.

under the super-hot Italian sun.
Mr. Babcock displayed many charm
Ing cretonnes, dwelling briefly upon
their possibilities. He followed with
wonderful French linens, representing
hand-block printing an art not yet
Introduoed (into this country. This
work .and the same patterns have been
In existence for hundreds of years in
the old country.
He also showed marvelous examples

as it was on the original niece. The
rtiglish glaze chintzes were also of
much Interest. This art is controlled
entirely by forelnn countries, but It is
rrobable that It will be an Industry m
America before long. The fabric was
suggested as being especially good for
club buildings, sun rooms, or publlo
buildings of any description, being

bizarre and charming samples as illus

American-made. He suld the old Ital

art equally wonderful. Still another
