New Way of Breaking
In U. S. Army Shoes
How many articles have you purchased
only to be disappointed to an extent
where you would like to be able to re
turn the goods to the merchant and get
your money back? The old method and
a method that still flourishes to-day con
cludes a purchase after you have received
the goods and paid the price. This is
particularly true of articles that receive
wear and tear, like shoes.
Herein Is where the business transac
tion between the purchaser and Berberich
differs. The very fact that Berberich
marks a shoe at a certain price demon
strates that they on their part are sat
isfied when the purchaser pays whatever
the aforesaid price may be. But they
realize that the purchaser cannot tell
whether he or she is satisfied until the
shoes have seen service. Therefore, every
pair ot Berberich shoes is guaranteed to
give satisfactory service, and the pur
chaser bujs with the satisfied knowl
edge that he or she, as the case may
be. Is sure of every cent's worth of
value for which they pay.
With such a guarantee lived up to in
the strictest sense of the word, on Ber-

Your Children's Feet Will Be What
Their Present Shoes Make Them
When they grow up they will either bless you for your thoughtful ness or find
it hard to forgive you for not seeing that their growing feet were properly shod.
Look at the shape of your children's feeLand then see that the shoes you get
fit them. The shoe should always be shaped to the foot. Never attempt to shape
the foot to the shoe. You will solve the problem with
For Growing Feet
Educator Shoes are built in the shape of the natural bare foot. They have ample room in the
front for all five toes. Thus they do not destroy the springiness of the step.
Don't think Educators are commonplace, clumsy, "good sense" shoes. They are good sense, but
they are good sense plus good looks. No ugly looseness, but scientific distribution of shoe space,
giving a sensible shape with a fine boot maker s look.
Easy to wear hard to wear out. Educators put up an astonishingly game fight against city pave
ments, and the kicks and cuffs healthy romping children are bound to give a shoe.
