Mitt's Brownbilr Shoe Store To Our ' Customers And Friends Both Here an d on the Battlefront J. H. Warren Groceries & Feed Take Pinch Out of Rationing With These Converting Tricks BY EPSIE KINAM5 NEA Staff Writer New York. — Discarded shoes kicking around in your closet are a gold mine of reclaimable footwear. Scuffer, battered, outmodel shoes con be repaired, reslyled, defilted. Made to look brand new, they can extend your annual ration. What to do? Here are several tips from the firm:of T. O. Dey— whose experts, ore repairmen to New York's carriage trade and to thousands of Main Streeters — Which solve the most prevalent shoe problems. Are soles worn out? Heels on the down grade? < Hove these old- timers re-soled on a last — not an iron jack. For • heels settle for top-grade^ lifts. To ' put heels back on an even keel, have the exposed base buffed ' free of old leather and cement. See : that nails don't go in too .close together. . Heels scuffed or chipped? Have them recovered. If loo spindly to begin with, replace with studier props, broader in depth and width. Keep new heels the same height as old' to preserve good balance of- shoe. One lift— no more — can be lopped off of a too- high heel. Uppers battered? Patches mas queradc as trick leather or fabric Now is the time to thank you for bearing with us when the going was a little difficult and to wish you every happiness at Christmas.

HALL BROS Cleaners and Hatters — PHONE 385 — IN, Churches throughout this fair land— and in whatever foreign lands are still free—this Christmas shall be observed in sincere solemnity. Yet our prayers shall be said with our voices ringing stronger than last year, because we know we are so much nearer the ultimate day of Victory. Faith, such as we have in the words of the Prince of Peace, has given us the will, the determination, and the fortitude to fight, each at our own battle station. For some it has been at the front—for some in planes—for others on ships. And for yet more of us, our fighting point has been in our homes and at our places of business, where we shall continue to help win. the war by observing every essential measure best serving the welfare of the nation!

Above is shown how unralioncd backless mules can be converted into evening- slippers, with'the simple addition of an ankle strap, to save you a. precious ration stamp. : "aprons" or tippings on toes; as fovings on split or worn heels. If straps are worn out, having new ones put on is only a minor operation. Frequently, up-to-the-minute straps, buckles, buttons or bows, used to replace worn or outmoded trimmings, will put good-as-new shoes back into the fashion parade. Cut-outs in the toe box, in the sides, in the back, or perforations pierced around-and-around a shoe add style to oxford or pumps, in disuse for lack of fashion. Opening up the toes of shoes is a good trick for making too-short shoes comfortable. It toe freedom is to be more than a tantalizing promise, toe-boxes must be removed and stuffing yanked out, when little windows are cut. Shoes too narrow? Have an expert let out seams, add material, If neccessary. Such treatment can be administered to old-fashioned numbers that point. The repair process in reverse goes for too- wide or too-long shoes. Color changes? You can have faded, stained or dirty white shoes treated to a dye bath of any color you choose and step outside of the four-color li mitation (white, brown, black and navy) imposed upon rationed footwear. Dark shoes can be dyed light. Yes, even black shoes red, and vice versa. Gold and silver kids can be dyed dark for practical wear, or restored to their former glory by re-gilding or re-silvering. Expert dyers strip dyed leathers of original color. Work base colors in, by hand. Apply color in more than one coat. To keep dyed shoes from shrinking, they are worked on a last. Golf shoes? If yours are only a wistful reminder of other days, you can convert these all-but- useless relics of the past into serviceable walking shoes. Removable spikes can be taken out of th'eir sockets and holes can be plugged in with plastic wood. Permanent spikes can be ground down to shoe-sole level. You have no ration stamp for evening slippers, or bridal shoes? Convert backless mules that you have on hand into braceletrstrap slippers or sandals with open- back straps. : Emigration Decreases Irish Unemployment Dublin, Eire (IP) r Large ;scale emigration to Britain since ' war started has partly solved Eire's unemployment problem.
