for a study to be made of the Uni-

LAID ASIDE for further consid-

"major campus organizations"
closer to SL by giving them non-
voting seats. Suggested groups
were Union, League, Student Re-
ligious Association, IFC, AIM, Pan-
Hel and Assembly. Factions op-

SOLE INTEREST-Jesse Brown draws on his 18 years of experi-
ence in shoe repair to see that foot-weary University students
are kept well shod. Here Jess nails a top lift onto a lady's shoe
with the latest in a series of machines which, he says, have
reduced his trade to a science. This contrivance completes four
separate operations before you can think about it, saving time
and doing a neater job than most humans can.

Styles may come, last their giddy
day and go, but underneath all
those buttons, bows, and off-cen-
ter laces, people are wearing the
same kind of shoes they have for
That's what Jess Brown says.
He has seen quite a few style
changes in his own eighteen years
of' repairing footwear for hard-
walking University students. Re-
pairmen, according to Brown, find
the same basic construction in
shoes year after year, whether the
toes be pointed or round, the heels
high, low, or indifferent.

THE CURRENT coed craze for
Louis XIV heels has had many an-
tecedent manias, since the day the
Sun King bid a last adieu to his
gathered courtiers and took off for
the hereafter. The concave heels
and severely pointed toes of the
Louis style were prominent among
the footwear of 100 years ago, and
appeared again, in modified form,
as recently as the twenties.
The University's driving ban,
another institution dating from
the twenties, has been the bane
of most well-heeled students,
but it has brought smiles to the
faces of campus shoe-repair
men that have not worn with
time. For the resultant increase
in student walking put rockets
into the shoe repair business,
ssending it up a full third over its
pre-ban level. It hasn't come
Students, according to Brown,
are walkingest people you'd care
to meet on an all-day hike. This
p e d a l prognosticator estimates
that the average book-totter gives
his half soles six or seven miles'
wear every day he goes to classes.
THE TOP ITEMS among stu-
dent repairs are heels and soles for
men, and top-lifts for coeds. The
dainty top-lift, it appears, is rare-
ly good for more than a month's
walking, at the end of which it's a
likely patient for one of Mr.
Brown's newest machines.
This prodigious gadget fas-
tens new top-lifts onto heels. It
cuts a nail-sized hunk from a
roll of wire, drives it into the
top-lift, and heel, buries it be-
neath the surface of the lift, and
puts a head on it-all in the
space of a casual click.
The saddle-shoe fad a few years
ago threw a minor scare into the
retread business, the heels on said
shoes having an endurance nigh
onto that of concrete. But with
coed styles reverting to formality
and high heels, the good, old, un-
reliable top-lifts have come into
BROWN THINKS the business
of repairing shoes is a fine one-
shoe, heemphasizes. "People," he
says, "bring in everything they
can't get done anyplace else."
Brown is always willing to oblige
a customer, even those who bring
in damaged bicycle seats, baby
buggy tops, and purses. But when
a local matron walked into his
shop the other antemeridian, bear-
ing a rather weatherbeaten girdle,
