PARSON SISTERS' BEAUTY
"Now, when you ask me why shoes
that we now make to retail for ?10
would have sold before the war for
$G.50 or $7, you've asked me some
thing that is troubling the biggest men
in the shoe business."
W. H. Braselton, superintendent of
the Columbia plant of the Hamilton'
Brown Shoe Company, settled back in
his office chair and studied the ceil
ing for a moment
"Since the signing of the armistice,
shos have advanced more than they
did during the war," he continued,
"and I would predict that shoes sell
ing thirty days from now, will sell
for more money than they do now.
Shoes being shipped from plants to
day to dealers can't be replaced for
the prices they are being shipped out
Prices Still Increasing.
"We are now filling orders for
shoes placed with us April 29, at
$4.85. May 20 these shoes were worth
?5 a pair, and they sold for ?6.75 a
pair August 13. Those;sold in August
are not to be delivered until January
1. If we had to go out and buy leath
er today for them, a still greater ad
vance in price would be required."
Although the exports have been
heavy, the imports in the -way of
leather goods have been extremely
light, Mr. Brasefton said. He showed
statistics proving that the decrease in
leather in the United States for the
first six months of 1919, as compared
with the last six months of 1918, was
from 22 to 20 per cent.
Government Set Height on Shoes.
"During war time," Mr. Braselton
resumed, "the manufacturers were al
lowed to make only two colors of tans
in shoes, and the height limit on
women's shoes was set by the govern
ment at eight inches. Just as soon as
the restrictions were removed, the
manufacturer began making a com
plete line of shoes including the nov
elties ten to eleven inchs high. So the
dealers now have to carry a larger
stock, and thus the amount of leather
is cut into."
Another factor that has caused shoe
prices to advance, according to Mr.
Braselton. is the wage increase. The
advance in salaries has been general,
he said, with everyone in connection
with the manufacture of a shoe
those who make the machinery used
in the fashioning of the boot, as well
as those who make the article itself.
"It is utterly impossible to say just
what 'per cent the wages have in
creased," declared Mr. Braselton, "they
vary too greatly. They range, in fact,
from 10 or 15 per cent to 100 per
Mr. Braselton "Hits the Ball."
Mr. Braselton is always on the job.
He knows the shoe business jjust
abont as well as it can be known.
And when a man in an essential po
sition, at a bench or anywhere about
the plant is ill, Mr. Braselton dons a
big leather apron and "hits the ball,"
as the men at the factory express it.
On the way to town in his big motor
car, Mr. Braselton said: "Leather is
better than it ever was, and is stead
ily improving as workmen are becom
ing more efficient, and better ma
chines for finishing it are being per
fected. The reason that many per
sons claim that leather now-a-days
is of an inferior quality is because
they find, of course, that when they
buy a pair of shoes for the price they
formerly did, the foot wear does not
have its former quality."
