Toes Are Open
In Dress Shoes
New Combinations Made'
In Models Of Ribbon,
Patent And Gabardine
By JEANNE FOSTER
Along with the season's rains come
new leaves, grass, flowers and SHOES.
For shoe manufacturers have cast
all caution to the winds this spring
and are bringing out some of the
most daring as well as flattering shoes
we have ever seen.
It is allwell and good to enjoy the
staunch protection of saddlebacks on
campus, but for dates something dis-
tinctive and a bit frivolous is in order.
For example, there is the new high-
heeled pump with a vamp consisting
of nothing more or less than crossed
and recrossed strips of kid.
Ankle Straps Shorten Foot
Gabardine, dyed in any color to
complement any costume, has been
fashioned into every type of shoe.
One pump has an unsuaully cut
throat and peep-toe, while another
has one side higher than the other
as it comes up and crosses over to
fasten low on the foot. This also has
the open-toe and cut-out eyelet flow-
Pill Boxes, Sailors And Bonnets
Numbered Among Spring Hats
My MARIAN FERGUSON
The first spring hats do not show
such wild flights of fancy as those
which the first robin has ushered in
for the past few years. Smallness and
conservatism are the general notes.
Felts and suedes in dark or pastel
colors form the backbone of the
sport styles, while navy blue and
black straws are still the spring fa-
vorites for dressy hats. Printed silks
and wools in turban styles are step-
ping ahead in popularity, however.
Felts Come In Pastels
Casual felts with dark ribbon trim
are important because of a lovely new
range of colors in soft pastel shades.
Variations on pink, yellow and blue
are most frequently seen, while novel
shades of purple and henna give new
color contrasts with dark or neutral
outfits. Small feathers and stitch-
ing give individuality to these hats.
"Kittenfluff," a new angora felt, is
very attractive in brimmed sport
A new idea in hats is a simple suede
cone with a hole at the top. Its ver-
satility is its main attraction, for it
can be draped in innumerable ways.
The top can be folded over squarely
and pinned with a jewelled clip, or can
be tucked into frivolous points. Lea-
ther hats in pastel or dark colors are
also a favorite for the early spring
featured. Feathers are seen only oc-
casionally. Fabric flowers are used
on matching pill boxes.
Veils are longer and more varied in
design than those of the winter. Some
completely cover the face and tie in
back in a large Pow after the fashion
of the motoring veils of the early
years of the century. Others tie under
the chin, or high or low on the sides.
Veils Are Contrasting
Contrasting veils also are used ef-
fectivey. A blue shade is worn with
Ruffles And Lace On Satin'
Or Crepe Give Feminine
Touch To Smart Lingeriej
With the rhythm and movement of
dress design this year, it was inevi-,
table that this swish and swing
should be adopted to lingerie. And
with the modes of 1911 competing
with those of 1850 in present fashions,
no one is surprised to hear the rustle
of taffeta petticoats again.
Ruffles and lace give the new fem-
inine touch to lingerie of gleaming
satin or smooth crepe. Bias cuts
and special gorings help mould thel
figure in the desired long diaphragm,
high bust lines. And to give the right}
"swing," these slip skirts are cut
wide and flaring.
For those who adhere to the simple
straight lines of the more tailored
mode there are the clinging knitted
slips, with straight-hanging skirts.'
These are ideal under tailored suits,
or sport togs.
There are taffeta petticoats for' af-
ternoon and evening wear cut to flare
just enough to aid in the graceful
swing of dress skirts. These are
ruffled at the bottom and come in
many bright colors. They give a
dashing bit of contrast under the
dark dress or suit, often chosen to
match the colored gloves or blouse
Smooth fitting chemise tops and
pantie sets are also designed to give
sleek lines to the figure. And the
more erect carriage of women nowa-,
days is helped by the correct, com-
fortable lines in undergarments.
press forever. Herringbone and men's
Several shoes have high ankle
straps. These combined with high
heels, tend to shorten the foot and
have been utilized in many different
styles. One has broad strips across
the toes, instep and ankle and a snug
fitting heel. Another is of gay Ro-
man stripe ribbon and is heeless, side-
less and toeless. In fact ,it is a sole
tied to the foot with crossed ribbon.
Gabardine Used With Patent
Gabardine has been combined with
patent most successfully. One pump
is made of gabardine on one side and
patent on the other. These meet in
the middle, giving the effect of two
different shoes when viewed from the
sides. A tie model has both toe and
sides cut out and is trimmed with
thin strips of patent in a scallop
design. Many a classic opera pump
has toe and heel of patent.
A new shade ;alternately called
strawberry and raspberry is taking
the country by storm, and local mer-
chants are stocking it heavily. One
shoe obtainable in this color has a
high heel, high vamp of punched calf,
cut out sides and the inevitable peep-
toe. Another, of gabardine, has ma-
terial crossed over and stitched down
across the toe.
Italian Fan Is Smart
Italian tan is another new color.
An interesting model in this shade
is a pump \vith a modified heel and
an extremely high vamp of perforat-
ed leather rising to a peak only to be
tied in a loose knot at the ankle. An-
other fancy shoe is sandalized and
has a five-hole tie.
Suede also appears in a variety of
colors. One Cuban-heeled shoe has
a seam down the middle with eyelets
cut out all along the seam and aroundE
the high throat. Another style has the1
sides and toe completely cut out and
ties at the ankle.

the brim is lined with shell pink silk.
Others are trimmed with bright rib-
Bright printed silk;, and wools are'
draped skilfully in turban styles. One
interesting hat combines printed silk
and straw in a style resembling an
Arabian sheik's headdress. Many tur-
bans have attached scarves.

smart accessories that com~plem~ent~
