ROMANCE GONE Eliciency Kills Sentiment as Machine Makes Socks in 25 Minutes By RUTH DUNBAR. "How snowy white your fingers look I against the scarlet wool l" was the favorite speech of grandfather when he was paying suit to grandmother, 4 who, if history is correct, never al- 4 lowed little things like love and court- i ship to distract her mind one minute a from her knitting. The modern young man is robbed of any opportunity to make these pretty speeches, for the wool is no longer scarlet but khaki. Worse yet, the maiden sits before a cold, steel ma chine and grinds off socks in as many minutes as it takes hours to knit them. This is what efficiency does to ro mance. In the various Red Cross workrooms of the New York County Chapter there are nearly seventy-five sock machines. Eight of these are in the model work room at 20 EastThirty-eighth street and others that have been ordered are held up by traffic conditions. Here instruc tors teach the use of the machine to Red Cross workers....
