Shoe Apparel Through Ages
S hoes Trend Toward Comfort
Elizabethan Footwear Featured 'DuCkbilI';
Torrid Twenties Brought Scanty San dles

High and handsome to low and
luxurious--this has been the trend
of fashion footwear throughout
the ages!
Tight shoes played havoc with
the human foot during the middle
ages when cobblers placed all em-
phasis on decoration and unusual
effects in designing fancy foot-
In the 1300's, the peak of shoe
>tyle was the "Crakow." This f an-
asy of footwear had a toe so long
and pointed that it required a
chain to hold it up so the wearer
could walk. . , ,
CLEOPATRA'S callouses were
doubtlessly due to the pointed
toes of her slippers which were re-
garded as a mark of distiction in
* early Roman times-.
The l700's still saw the reign
of the pointed toe, and the styl-
ish Frenchwoman of the period
also f edavored a slener heel that
threw her foot up to a sharp 60
degree angle.

Tickets On Sale Now

No tickets will be sold at the

The dance committee requests
that all names of booth chaper-
ones be submitted to Robert Had-

"The ball will be formal with no
Acorsages worn," said Mr. Ferrara.

'Duckbill" made its debut in the
fashion world. This fancy, arch
support featured soles so wide that
a law finally had to passed limit-
ing them to a width of five and
one half inches!

DURING THIS period, the mem-
bers of the wooden shoe set liter-
ally began "lifting themselves by
the bootstraps." They had attach-
ed iron rings to their shoes to en-
able themselves to lift their feet
out of the mud-.
Not knowing one foot from the
other, by looking at their shoes
that is our ancestors finally
adopted the style of right and
left shoes in the 1850's.
The turn of the century saw mi-
lady sporting footwear which was
definitely made for practical pur-
poses with tops which camie prac-
tically to the ankles.
WITH THE hiking of hemlines,
the feminine population began'
wuld add to rathert hnesubrc
from, the ankle attraction.
When the torrid and terrific
twenties hit the nation, women
were sporting shoes which were
nothing more than sandles with
a lie bit more heel and toe at-
For sport and' classroom wear,
the campus woman of todaV casts
her vote in favor of saddle shoes
and loafers. With the return of
the Charleston and Varsity Drag
though, the flapper footwear of
twenty years ago is making a re-
peat performance.
Nowadays, milady may be sport-
ing nothing on her feet but a four
inch heel plus a sole, or merely a
laced-up buckle, but nevertheless
she'll be footloose and fancy free!

Despite [lot Weathfer
It's going to be a sheer, sheer
summer along the fabric line,
claim New York stylists.'
When temperatures reach the
hot weather point, fashionable wlo-
men will look cool and elegant in
their rayon sheer frocks which are
now taking their place among cot-.
tons, silks and butcher linens for
warm seasons.
Important news in this import-
ant material are different and
charming prints. Appearing in ev-
ery describable pattern, experts
predict that they will dominate
fashion headlines.
TINY SPLASHES of bright tan-
gerine with shadow stripes of a

designer who outlines these colors
against a startling white, and adds
interest with a white linen jacket.

WILTLESS AND fresh looking
is the shimmering white back-
ground with green and gold
squares decorating it in a sleek
pattern. This fabric is intended to
"look pretty" no matter how warm
the sunshine.
One New York designer is
featuring Mothwing sheers in
her summer collection. lFluted
ruffles and gumdrop size but-
tons go down the front for a
slimming flattering dress.
In addition to rayon sheers,
bright colored ginghams, sparkling
Lumina, and fresh, white piquets
will be seen during summer days.
But no matter what the mater-
ial may be the accent will fall on
cool, comfortable clothes.
