Conversion. Hosiery factory. More essential to America's war effort than this attractive nightgown are millions of yards of mosquito netting now being made by an Eastern mill. Conversion of the plant from manufacture of hosiery and gloves to mosquito netting for the Army and Navy involved changing the pattern cam and driving gears on a Tricot-warp-a knit machine. Van Raalte Company

Conversion. Hosiery factory. Key to this picture is the little spool of silk thread on the machine at right. Instead of using Japanese silk to make women's stockings, this Eastern mill is converting many of its looms (see left) to production of mosquito netting to protect men fighting from insect bites. Van Raalte Company

Mosquito net and spade are standard equipment. This is Pte. M. Swain, Payson, Utah

Conversion. Hosiery factory. This worm gear and worm wheel (left) once wove stockings for Miss America. Today they've been put to work for her Uncle Sam in the conversion of a large Eastern hosiery plant to production of mosquito netting for America's armed forces. Van Raalte Company

An American flying squadron in India. A switch in time. Seated in his mahogany bed with mosquito netting overhead and busily sewing is Captain John B. Wilson of Deer Lodge, Montana. He has been in India for more than six months. Prior to joining the Air Corps, he flew for United Airlines as co-pilot on the Seattle-San Francisco run

Conversion. Hosiery factory. She wears them but she doesn't make them any more. Conversion of a large Eastern mill from production of women's stockings to mosquito netting for the Army and Navy, gives this worker a vital defense job. She's drawing yarn from warp machine into warp beams prior to its use on looms. Van Raalte Company

Conversion. Hosiery factory. Looks intricate, but this contraption is an old story to this young woman employee of an Eastern hosiery plant which is now forty-percent converted to the manufacture of mosquito netting for the armed forces. These warp holders are used to determine the tensile strength of yarn and to keep it in place during machine operations. Van Raalte Company

Conversion of the plant from manufacture of hosiery and gloves to mosquito netting for the Army and Navy involved changing the pattern cam and driving gears on a Tricot-warp-a knit machine. Van Raalte Company

Conversion. Hosiery factory. Permalon solution, a chemical mixture used on mosquito netting is mixed by a worker in a large Eastern mill which formerly made women's stockings. This chemical solution stiffens the netting and prevents subsequent shrinkage, so that the hardest tropical downpour which American armed forces may endure will not alter the netting

Conversion. Hosiery factory. Her left hand knows what her right one is doing! Each is operating two looms: her right hand guides a loom which produces silk for women's stockings, while her left hand rests on one which is producing mosquito netting for American armed forces. At present this plant is forty percent converted from production of stockings to netting, but with additional orders more looms will be converted to this essential war production. Van Raalte Company

Conversion. Hosiery factory. Built to ordnance specifications, this dye padder is used to apply a chemical (permalon) finish on mosquito netting. The permalon stiffens the netting and prevents shrinkage in it. The machine has been installed in an Eastern hosiery mill which is at present forty-percent converted to production of this netting for America's armed forces. Van Raalte Company

Conversion. Hosiery factory. This mechanic used to tend machines which produced some of America's sheerest hosiery. Today he's working for America's armed forces on these same machines, which are producing mosquito netting for the Army and Navy. In the picture, he's servicing the mesh gears of a loom. Van Raalte Company

Conversion. Hosiery factory. These gears were once used in the manufacture of women's stockings. Today they've been put to far more important use with their conversion to the production of mosquito netting for America's armed forces. Here, two plant engineers inspect the worm gear changeover on a loom undergoing conversion. These gears are frequently known as mesh gears, since they control the size and type of the netting mesh.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Birds by the score, especially gray and white pelicans, cormorants, sea gulls, herons and ospreys, flock to the turn basin east of the Vehicle Assembly Building in a feeding frenzy as schools of fish fill the waters. In the background is Launch Pad A with Space Shuttle Endeavour waiting for launch on Friday, Feb. 11 for mission STS-99. The basin is part of the Indian River Lagoon, which is made up of Mosquito Lagoon to the north, Banana River and Creek to the south and the Indian River to the west. It is called a lagoon because it is a body of water separated from the ocean by barrier islands, with limited exchange with the ocean through inlets. The Indian River Lagoon has one of the most diverse bird populations anywhere in America. Also, nearly one-third of the nation's manatee population lives here or migrates through the lagoon seasonally. The lagoon varies in width from ½ mile to 5 miles and averages only 3 feet in depth KSC00pp0192
