Co ored Shoes Become Fashion News

Taking pity on the cries of the
} women of Ithe fashion world, the gov-
ernment has recently lifted the ban
on colored footwear, and this spring
the feet that are in style will wear
brightly colored shoes.
The manufacturers have seeming-
ly spent their two years of black
-and brown shoemaking in inventing
new designs with which to entice the
1 spring shopper of 1945. Biggest news
was the re-making of navy blue
shoes, which are considered indispen-
sible to go with the traditional spring
outfits of navy blue.
Navy blue shoes are now being
made in suede, calfskin, gabardine
and lizard in all the popular cuts-
d'orsay, strictly tailored pumps, and
dressier ones with bows. Both
and open toes have prov-
3 c to lw pojIular sellers in the
spring shoe market.
To wear with that red suit come
red shoes. Ranging in tones from
brilliant scarlet to twany orange,
the shoes can match any outfit. One
prominent designer has featured a
black suit with a white pique blouse
and the only accent of color, a red
headband and spanking red shoes,
Combination of colors-blue and
white, brown and white in spec-

tator pumps, saddle shoes, golf
shoes and novelty styles have been
reissued on the make. iHowever,
many women have, after two sum-
mers of wearing all white shoes, de-
veloped a fondness for the cream
suede pumps, and will und'oubtedly
continue to wear them.
Buckles for darker shoes are a new
style being offered by a prominent
New York specialty shop. Of gold
and silver, they are detachable and
can be placed on any pair of plain
pumps to make them dressier. Square,
oblong, scrolled and round buckles are
found in this showing.
Shoes this spring will add a gay
note to the costume of the American
women who can step forward with
pride in any color shoes that they de-
House athletic managers who
haven't as yet received their ping-
pong rules may call for them from
3 p-m. to 5 p.m. today, from 9 a.m.
to noen tomorrow, and from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Monday in Rm. 15 in
Barbour Gym. According to Alene
Loeser, WAA ping -pong manager,
this is imperative as the tourna-
ment must start Monday.
