As heavy Rubber So

Saddle shoes may still be the "ne
ing plus ultra" of female attire but, ac-
gle cording to the average 1940 male
et- they are definitely on the way out for
nd spring and summer wear.
in The main item of footwear which
ure has come in to take their place is
ith the brown and white mocassin, which
.nd also has a rubber sole. These differ
from saddle shoes in that the latter
is only brown near the laces while
the former has a wide strip of brown
leather around the whole shoe above
the sole.
Another important trend to notice
is the continuing tendency to get
away from leather soled shoes in
favor of rubber. In past years every
shoes was made as much as possible
of leather but that type of sole is
seldom seen on the college campuses

uing a trend they began this winter
-producing shoes with an antique
finish. Such shoes are in a lightert
brown than those ordinarily worn1
and have very little red in their color.
After a time, of course, polish will1
darken and redden the shoes but1
they will retain their original color1
for a long while. Before they are
sold, such shoes are oil-treated, and
if one prefers retaining their originalr
color rather than a polish, saddle-
soaping and not polishing is recom-
Tennis Shoes Outmoded
Tennis shoes, sneakers and the like

shoes are taking their place. The

her first tiny shoots shooting up
into the warm sunshine. The old
question, a collegiate question we
must admit, of whether or not gar-
ters, has faded away into the "lim-
bo." The question now is not one of
do you want 'em or do you "not,"
but how many do you want, and what
kind, and where are you going to put
them all, and who's got that much
space in his bureau, and where the
hell are you going to get the money?
These, it must be noted, are only the
leading questions. There are others.
We shall not consider garters for
women, partly because we don't know
whether the style there runs to the

foll 'em ups, 01 to the more or less*
Spencerian fasten 'em ups. From
observations made in classrooms, we
may state broadly that the rolled
stocking seems to be "quite the
thing," or at least "something."
But aside from the age old prob-
lem of libido and the "academic"
life, we want to tell you all first about
our garters. They are sort of maroon,
except where they are frayed to a
light pink. They do not "hold our
socks up" very well, having long
since given up the good fight, but
still they have a warm place in our
heart if that is not too ambiguous,
and the editorial we is practically
always ambiguous, this isn't the first
time we have run into trouble using
it. At any rate, it is the flaccid state
of our garters which prompts us to

rise up in defense of the species
"What is a garter?" We may well
ask the question. We shall ask it
again "What is a garter?" There!
Now logically, or traditionally, a
garter is a thing that holds your
socks up, or your "Belle Sharmeers"
if you are a woman or effeminate.
Ours don't. Our socks look like dis-
couraged accordions, only woolly ex-
cept when those are in laundry. But
we veer. Garters, if healthy and not
undernourished, DO hold your socks
up. They are designed with that end
in view, as you will see "indisput-
ably" if you'll only take the trouble
to go around to your favorite cloth-
ier's or any clothier's who handles
garters and we don't mean a thing by
that. But as we said, ours don't.

A very popular number which had
its start last year is the all white
buckskin with a thick rubber sole in
either red or black. The former is
a bit more popular as there is less
of a contrast with the color of the
shoe. In addition, many new types
of mocassin are bing bought for'
spring wear. One of these, which
looks like many a house slipper, be-
ing equipped with rubber soles, will
probably become very popular for
wear this summer. Another of this
type is equipped with a very sporty
strap across the instep and can be
worn with sport clothes throughout
the year.
Black and white combaination
shoes seem to be out. As most men
wear sport combinations in greens
and browns during the spring and
summer they find that the brown
and white go better; and the average
wardrobe usually doesn't find a place
for both black and whites and brown
and whites. In addition, the quieter
tone of brown seems to be preferred.
Mesh Soles Gain
In combinations there is a definite
trend toward the so called "ventil-
ated" and "mesh" shoes. These are
simply brown and whites with the
white part perforated; the whites
with the largest number of perfor-
ations are usually termed "mesh." A
number of two-toned shoes have also
been made with a light brown or
creamn color taking the place of
white, and from all indications they
y should sell well during the coming

For spring dress wear many will'
continue to use the same black and
leather shoes as they did during the
winter but when the summer months
roll around other shoes will be worn.
For formals, patent leather and
black footwear will continue to hold
the popular fancy but various whites
and brown and whites will be worn
for "ordinary dress." The rubber sole
has also invaded this field of foot-
wear but it has not been very well-
received and the traditional dress
shoe of the summer will be worn
again. Also interesting to note is the
fact that despite the popularity of
the "mesh" and "perforated" shoes
they will not be considered "the
thing" for dress wear bowing the
simpler old-fashioned models.
Shoelaces? By All Means
We have uncovered a definite trend
in shoe laces for this season. Black
shoelaces will be worn with black
shoes. We have also discovered that
white shoelaces will be worn with
white shoes and brown with brown.
