Syllabus

1. As a ground for sustaining the judgment in his favor, a respondent in certiorari is entitled to reassert a defense made in, but not accepted by, the court below, and, for this purpose, he need not make a cross-application for the writ. P. 295 U. S. 239.

2. Claim 23 of reissue patent No. 16,360, to Stephens, claiming a method for repairing runs in knitted fabrics, such as stockings, by stretching the fabric over a "suitable holder" and by use of a repairing device or needle having a hook and a pivoted latch, held "laterally out of alignment with the run," is invalid for want of proper disclosure and for lack of invention. Pp. 295 U. S. 241, 295 U. S. 243.

72 F. 2d 405 affirmed.
