I think" it a very debatable question
as to whether the presence of men
in the cast twoyears ago made that

"Bustle-Back' Shoe Is Onl One
Of New Footwear Innovations

You can walk across campus with-
out a hat and no one will stare; you
can go to classes without a revers-
ible (you had better sneak in though)
and you can wave to friends with a
fairly clear conscience even though
you are not wearing angora mit-
tens-but, did you ever try walking
into the ballroom sans shoes?
'This year's models are truly un-
usual. Plain opera pumps are al-
ways fine, but why not show a little
originality? For instance, you can
have a bustle-back shoe to go with
that bustle dress. Sound funny?-
well it doesn't look that way. The
shoes are striking and the bustle
does not exactly wave in the breezes
like Mercury's wings. The idea is
just to put some back interest on
the shoe.
Interest Is On The Heel
One pair has a tiny flap attached
just below that place where your
ankle turns so gracefully. Another
has a miniature flat bow, and yet a
third has narrow slits on either side/
of the heel. 'A black suede pump
has ring lizard decorating the back
half of the shoe and the heel itself.
Need we mention the Ann, Arbor
weather? Why ruin a nice pair of
shoes by wearing them under galosh-
es? One of the nicest remedies we
know for this is a pair of alligator
shoes. Alligator will stand up under
