Why Not Dress Alike and Save Money During War Time?
WHY not a civilian uniform as a measure of economy in clothing? suggests a Canton, Ohio, man. It could be worn by everyone, man, woman and child, and thus eliminate foolish dressing, the dude, and the spending of hundreds of thousands of dollars on needless finery. It would certainly bring home to the civilian population their part in the war, and the ladies would need to apologize no longer for appearing twice in the same dress. As the result of investigation carried on by the Ohio man, a standardized suit of wool of excellent quality could be sold for less than twenty dollars.
