The Army wordsmith who toiled over the attached STARS and STRIPES article worked very hard to convince his Doughboy readership that the latest piece of U.S. Army headgear was "made on a scientific plan", terribly stylish and well-worth having around:
"It has neither brim nor visor...It is better made than the old cap. It fits more neatly, looks more chic, adapts itself far more genteelly to the average Doughboy braincase."
"To put it in a word, the new cap is natty. And the old cap was not even hatty."
