ple who rondemn it are apparently willing to suffer day in and day out,
agonies born of pain, almost equalling Spanish tortures.
We speak of you who purchase shoes all too small or too ill shapen
for you. You who go to stores where the science of foot fitting has never

in the country and understand our business.
