Barbara is to test sweaters

Barbara is to test sweaters

The long-awaited sweat-shirts signifying the wearer as a Vic rep have been further delayed for at least two months.

The nylon American-style shirt, of Victoria green with "Victoria" and the crest emblazoned on the front were to have gone on sale on April 13 but the manufacturer made the consignment of a grey, knitted material. The Executive meeting of April 13 decided that these were not acceptable and declined to receive the lot.

Barbara Cowan, Women's Vice-President is investigating the properties of the shirts as regards shrinkage and other common failings of knitted garments and will report her findings at a later meeting.

Executive is considering purchasing the faulty shirts at a discount as about £25 has already been received in orders. No definite decision has vet been made however.
