" GOOD OID-AAS/A/OA/DD v A ^-"^v - MkZ By Eleni Fashion Editor Let’s confess it, girls. We’re pleased as punch when a male compliments us on our choice of shoes. Secretly, we always feel smug when we hear. “Say, those are good-looking, sensible shoes.” And these are exactly what we’ve discovered in a local shop. In fact, they appear to have a corner on this type of footgear. The gentleman responsible for this tidy centralization of good, simple, well-styled walking shoes is credited with the fa mous “station-wagon” shoe de signs: for years the favorites of women possessing an appre ciation for fine craftsmanship, fine leathers and shoe design ing. They originated here in Washington. All the shoe., xeatured have built-up leather heels, many of which have been “filed” to prevent rough edges. All have a mellowed look which deepens with wear and care. Though they are sturdy in appearance they are quite light in weight. They’re designed to comple ment the “tailored” look always in every season’s fashion pic ture. Our first acquaintance with this shop was during the war years when shoe rationing was in effect Little sympathy was extended when a coupon went wasted due to lack of foresight in choosing a good shoe. To day. though the problem of a shoe coupon is no longer with us, it is still important that a shoe fit well, look well, and not be frightfully expensive. Most styles offered are avail able In green, red black cognac, and the new maple colored calfskin. There are a few styles in bucko, such as the “peasant oxford” sketched, which also comes in maple colored calfskin. This “flat” may be purchased with either a neolite or a leather sole. The question of matching ac cessories has been answered with the store’s having on hand many handbags, belts, and gloves to match the shoes. We’ve sketched a number of styles in shoes and handbags that are available. On the left from top to bottom: Cognac colored perforated spectator pump. Heeless and toeless green calf walking shoe with button trim. Next a maple col ored high shoe with interesting cuffed vamp detail. The “pea sant oxford” bucko flat piped with contrasting trim and with red leather tongue and shoe trim pick-ups against the black. Bottofh shoe is a maple colored extension soled, square-toed sturdy walking shoe. Going from top to bottom on the right, our handbags state their case for the well-tailored purse. There’s the compactly shaped natural leather one with the “bit” closure. Double pock ets on the outside of our next handbag make it still more easy to use. The long envelope shaped bag with “arrow” trims has a smaller sister in the one next to It featuring only one "arrow.” All the handbags sketched have adjustable shoul der straps. Boost Beauty By Angelo Patri There is a great deal to be said in favor of the beauty culture that is so much emphasized these days. It is right that people should work to look their best. Beauty nourishes the spirit and so deserves a high place in our plans for living. When a girl decides that she will have a beautiful skin she must also decide to bathe regularly, diet carefully and take as much exer cise as she needs to keep her body working smoothly. She will not eat greasy food but choose fruit and vegetables. She will not overeat sweets because they add pounds, muddy the skin and cut down ap petite for healthier foods. By tak ing heed of her beauty treatments she raises her health standards all along the way and nothing could be better for her and for the pom munity. The beauty seeker will take care of his teeth. (Boys are included in this befcuty culture idea, too). Teeth are basic to sound health, to good looks and to the smile that means so much to us all. That means thorough brushing after meals and a trip to the dentist twice a year at least. Lovely hair adds greatly to the picture and to have that, hair must be well brushed daily so that it shines in its health. Naturally it must be trimmed and well groomed, and that requires trips to the beauty shop and to the barber shop. Athletics are. the tonic for boys and young men and the way to beauty for them. Sound health cre ates unshakable beauty. It Is the basis of all beauty. Bathing, exer cise, good diet, sufficient rest, use fulness, are elementary to sound health, and young men are awak ening to this. Only a beautiful woman out shines the beauty of a fine man. His slim, clean, firm body is a beautiful thing, a noble work of God and the care he gives it re pays him in terms of admiration, in terms of acceptance by those he prefers. His healthy, handsome ap pearance stimulates his pride and belief in himself and inspires the same feeling in those who meet him. I am all for beauty culture in boys and girls because, as I have said, it is the flower of sound health. Bad habits write their tale on the bodies of those who indulge in them. Overeating, drinking alco hol, refusing to swim and hike and work hard, oversleeping, shout aloud in the dull eyes, the slack mouth, the-muddy skin, the pim ples, the sluggish body. I am all for the beauty shops, the gyms, the teams, the desire of youth to be well and to look well. “Beauty is its own excuse for be ing” but it has many sound health reasons as well.
