"A VENUS! "FAMOUS
GREEK NEVER WORE HIGH-HEELED SHOES"
By Emily lllingworth
The third of six articles, written
especially for The Day Book by the
famous dancer, hailed by public and
critics as the modern-day Venus and
the "Pavlbwa of America."
The Greek lady of the Venus statue
could never have batted 1.000 as a
beauty if she had worn French heels.
Look at your little plaster model

in the figure, but in the average of
this woman, who for 2300 years has
batted 1.000 as a beauty.

Mother Nature wants the toes to

At least in the matter of shoes and
corsets, I do not.
When I was told by my first in
structor in dancing that I must give
up high heels for ever and a day, I "'
refused. I said I would give up all
my ambitions as a dancer first
For weeks I wore high heels,

reached the school.
But I did give up high heels and
