It is not intended to limit the invention to such matters except to the extent set forth in the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

mlg'KVerdol paper, in band or analogous form, for controlling textile machinery, and formed with usual perforations for guidance of the paper and for its control action, the same comprising a body of paper, inherently subject to troublesome substantial distortion of dimension by reason of natural variations of moisture therein, and the surface of such paper body having united to it a coating of relatively thin metal foil, acting both to strengthen the paper and to fix the paper against substantial alteration of dimensions.

2. A Verdol paper, in band or analogous form, and formed with usual perforations for controlling textile machinery, the same comprising a body of paper, inherently subject to troublesome substantial distortion of dimension by reason of natural variations in moisture therein, and the surface of such paper body having united to it a coating of relatively thin metal foil, and such metal foil being overlaid with a second paper layer united thereto, the metal foil, between the two layers of paper acting both to strengthen the paper and to fix the paper against subtsan tial distortion of dimensions.

3. A Verdol paper, in band or analogous form, and formed with usual perforations for guiding it and for controlling textile machinery, the same comprising a body of paper, inherently subject to troublesome substantial distortion of dimension by reason of natural variations in moisture therein, and the surface of such paper body having united to it a coating of relatively thin aluminum foil, acting both to strengthen the paper and to fix the paper against substantial distortion of dimensions.

4. A Verdol paper, in band or analogous form, and formed with usual perforations for controlling textile machinery, the same comprising a body of paper, inherently subject to troublesome substantial distortion of dimension by reason of natural variations in moisture therein, and both faces of such paper body having united to them coatings of relatively thin metal or aluminum foil, acting both to strengthen the paper and to fix the paper against substantial alteration of dimensions.
