is really responsible-for his' present
difficulty, and Edgar M.TJullen, chief
judge of the Court of Appeals, who

before the impeachment court, she
will lend an intensely human touch to
a proceeding about which there is

LOW-HEELED SHOES A MENACE
TO HEALTH SAY DOCTORS
Denver, Colo., Sept. 18. Women
who have prided themselves on their
good sense in wearing low-heeled
shoes will be shocked to find that
doctors are of the opinion that low
heels are a serious menace to' the
"If women persist in wearing low
heeled shoes we will have a race of
women with broken arches," Re
