Clasp Converts Pants to Knickers (Apr, 1934)

Clasp Converts Pants to Knickers
TWO pants can now be had from one, with tricky little clasp invented by Thomas Vaccaro of Los Angeles. Ordinary trousers worn at the office can be converted in a minute into golf knickers, and the business executive is then ready for an afternoon of golf. The change is made with quick manipulation of a strap device easily installed on any pair of pants.

STOVEPIPE PANTS SAVE FISHERMEN FROM SNAKES (Aug, 1933)

STOVEPIPE PANTS SAVE FISHERMEN FROM SNAKES
So richly stocked with fish is the Deschutes River, in central Oregon, that sportsmen facetiously say one must hide behind a tree to bait a hook. Unhappily, the region also abounds in rattlesnakes. To invade this angler’s paradise in safety, fishermen have adopted the ingenious expedient of donning tin pants fashioned from stovepipes, as seen in the photograph at the left. The metal leggings are reported to have proved successful in protecting the fishermen from the fangs of rattlers.

Meet Professor Shrinkproof (Apr, 1949)

Meet Professor Shrinkproof

John Derrig’s home is his laboratory and his family the guinea pigs. They all take a heating so he can test fabrics the hard way.

By Wilfred Weiss

DOROTHY Derrig was coming down the walk in front of her house at Bound Brook, N. J., in an exquisite sheer-net party dress. Suddenly her husband John whipped around the corner with the garden hose, like a fireman who had overslept a three-alarmer. He squirted the full spray on his pretty wife and soaked that long, lovely gown from neck to hemline.

“It’s just fine, John,” she stood there and remarked sweetly—without making a move to dash back into the house and look up the nearest divorce lawyer in the classified phone book. “See, it hasn’t lost a bit of its crispness! The water is rolling right off.”
