A Made - to - Measure Fit in Ready . to Win Shoes About our fitting service We believe that the principal function of a shoe business such as we conduct is to fit feet properly. With us the salt of a pair of shoes is a secondary matter. Our first consideration is to fit your feet as they should be fitted. . Unless we do that. we reel that we are not entitled to your patronage. JO Slyhi at 7 AO 1 during Kile This policy means much to any woman. It means a great deal more to those who are "hard-to-fit" or those with tender, sensitive feet. - All women can come to us with the fullest confidence, and the assurance that if we cannot fit them, wt will not misfit them. With such a wide variety of Wilbur Coon Special Measurement Shoes, there are very few feet that we cannot fit: ec onomically, smartly, and comfortably. ; MESMER-SMITH SHOE CO. 473 Thirteenth St. T ' 'An Washlnffton Broadway .

"With only handshakes of his col leagues, August Vollmer, pensioned policeman, left his office for the last time this afternoon. " Not the least important among those who said good-bye to the golden rule1' chief, who '27 years ago, laid aside a mall carrier's bag for a star as town marshal), were members of the Vollmer "gang" of neighborhood children, Dignified visitors from many climes who have called on numerous occasions to seek the advice of the man known around the world for his wisdom In fields of criminology have entered his office to find the expert they sought literally subr merged by childhood.

No group of men have a finer opportunity, especially in times like these, to spread the gospel of good cheer then policemen. "The lowly drunken bum covered With vermin is entitled to as much sympathy and respect as you would Klve the president of the United States. He Is more deserving of your sympathetic consideration because he is the victim of his environment and Inheritance. "It is not sufficient to allow things to remain as they are but It Is you task to help make this world a little better place in which to live. "Inseparable from the .spirit of service Is the spirit of sacrifice, something which must 'always remain' a spiritual offering. "Men who enter the police profession must know there Is no material wealth connected with it, No good policeman can be concerned wJtl material possessions if he has the true spirit of sacrifice. He cannot pursue his calling in-this branch of service. He Is entitled, however, to a decent living wage commensurate with the training and education he must bring to his calling. "A policeman must be wllllng(to forego the pleasure of social Inter course because of the very nature of his duties. HUMILITY ADVISED. "Another integral part of the spirit of service is the attribute of humility. ; "Of dignity a policeman must be ever mlndfui. . , "Merely" serving the people, and cashing n pay check at the end of tho month Is not. enough: We must give constant thought to phaws of work which touches the souls of people." , ' , ; : ' "Humility means being humble In spirit and freedom from arro gance and egotism. A policeman's work should always be done with entle modesty and self-effacement and for genuine joy In service." Captain John A.
