j SHOKTKR "SKIRT" FOR MEN
CHICAGO. -The Linen Supply
(Association of America reports
jthat shorter "skirts" for men are
coming soon. The association said
that in order to conserve on cotton
fabric, shorter grocers' aprons and
bartenders' jackets will be made
for the duration. In adition, wait
resses' skirts will be shorter
stopping just below the knee.
From the opening of the doors
of the new home of the Way
nesville Bakery on Friday after
noon at 2 o'clock until the closing
hour of 6, four hundred and ten
ustomers tiled through and bought
f the delicious wares offered for
sale - and the joy with which they
paid their money over the counters
left no doubt as to the fact that
they were ''satisfied customers."
On Saturday there were six
hundred and twenty-seven cus-
'iii'i- who bought bread, cakes,
pies and rolls from the bakery,
iiaking a total of 1.037 persons
who patronized the bakery in less
than two days. The last census
gave Waynesville a population of
'ess than 3,000. Certainly no one
lacked for sweets in this area over
the last week-end.
lt was not the crashing crowd
that comes from a sensational im
pulse, but a steady stream that
came and went continuously on the
opening day and no wonder for
blocks the aroma of those cakes
and cookies tilled the air like a

hoppiest over the opening. Mr.
and Mrs. Pearce and their gracious
daughter, Miss Evelyn, who had

week-end to take part in the grand

The daughter of the linn, who
is majoring in science of foods,
expects when she finishes college
to come back and be a member of
the lirni and do some "fancy cat
ering." To tell the truth the food looked
better in the new setting, with :
row after row of white shelves ,
and the large show cases with tins ;
of tempting cookies and cakes.;
The revolving table with fruit
cakes reminded one of Christmas
and the boys overseas who will
have to have theirs sent within
the next few weeks, if they have
one from home.
There were teahalls, all sugar
coated, fluffy angel food cakes,
all of 200 of them, date loaf, ready
for sandwiches, or better still, a
nice rich sauce poured over it,
flavored to your own liking. There
were cherry pies ready for serv
ing, and if you had rather have
them lemon meringues, or the old
Cup cakes all iced in chocolate,
and white sugar icing. There were
Danish squares, a receipt from
overseas. Date goodies that melt

i cakes, as many as 48 can be baked
at one time which would take
around 30 minutes to mix and 16
can be put in pans in 8 minutes.
It makes one's arms ache to think
of such speed, except, of course,
the mixing is done by machinery.
There were cookies of every kind
and variety from the old fashion
ed sugar cookies to any fancy kind
you might wish. They went out of
that shop in dozen loads, many of
them heading for some hungry boy
in. camp. In fact the-very first
sale was of four dozen cookies.
The second sale was a fruit cake
that was destined for the Christ

afternoon for dozens of others to
