Excerpt from The Bobbin and Beaker, Vol. 1: Official Journal of the Clemson Textile School; March, 1940

Previously in this article, the fiber has been called rayon, but its original name was artificial silk. The manufacture of artificial Silk caused such a decrease in the consumption of real silk that the importers of real Silk urged that anoth er mame'be given to the new fiber. The National Retail Dry Goods Association then changed the name from artificial silk to Rayon. The chang ing of its name gave this new fiber much publicity and helped its growth tremendously.

In 1911 the production of rayon was only 365, 000 pounds, but by 1925 it had jumped to 000 pounds. The production for 1940 is predicted to be about pounds, which Shows that the growth of this fiber has been sensational. In America there are 29 rayon plants, which are own ed by 18 firms. These plants employ per son-s and pay them 65 million dollars in wages annually. Due to the mass production of this fi ber, it seemed as though there would be a surplus, which would be detrimental to the selling price. As a matter of fact, our American companies are unable to supply the demand, and during 1937 they were compelled to import 35 million pounds of rayon to fill their orders. According to reports, the manufacturers, even with increased produc tion, are going to be hard pressed to supply the 1940 demand.
