Appeals for True Labels
Lewis A. Hird, chairman of the
executive committee of the Na
tional Association of Wool Manu
facturers, has sent to all directors
of the association a communication
in reference to labelling practices
in that industry and In the apparel
field. Mr. Hird makes particular
reference to the growing use of
spun rayon mixtures. While ad
mitting that they may be entirely
satisfactory for certain purposes,
Mr. Hird makes an earnest plea
for the honest presentation of fab-
brics, believing that such mixtures
should be advertised and sold for
what they are and that they should
not be allowed to masquerade as
Mr. Hird points out that the
wool textile industry has approved
standards which prevent the use
of the term "wool" in referring to
a fabric unless the percentage of
wool content is disclosed. He points
out, however, that inasmuch as
wool fabrics are generally manu
factured into garments before they
reach the consumer, the standards
adopted are not adequate to pro
tect the public unless they are

for compulsory labelling of wool
and part wool garments. Such pro
posals might come from the wool
growers, as Mr. Hird suggests, in

ested in making it impossible for
other fibers to masquerade

sumers who are certainly inter
ested in knowing what they get
for their money and who are ob
viously entitled to know whether
a so-called "wool" garment is all
