Miss Durst's Betrothal Told imsangelesCimes' I. MAGNIN & CO. features David Evins' footwear fashion this week. His tunc collection brings nut the envelope vamp shown here in gold brocade, outlined in gold David Evins Sharpens Shoe Silhouette but Makes Point With Ease, Comfort BY FAY HAMMOND , Times Fashion Editor I. Magnin's favorite shoe designer is making his sea- sonal tour of their Southland stores this- week with a collection that really pinpoints footwear fashions for fall! David Evins has sharpened the silhouette, to sti-. letto-toed slimness, but he is quick to point out that this shape is not necessarily what it seems at first glance. "There is enough variety in shoe slenderness to make it comfortable as well as chic for most women." says Mr. Evins. "All pointed toes are not exaggerated and some are merely pointed EFFECTS with no change in the last. Extra Measurement "In any case, the point Is an extra measurement that doesn't change the width of a shoe across the ball of the foot; it merelv elongates the. line and achieves a lithe and elegant look." Mr. Evins illustrates one of his most pointed effects with 14-carat gold, a pretty convincing medium. This precious metal tips the sole of pumps in suede, satin or calf. An envelope wrap over a slender vamp is another fool-the-eye approach to the pointed-toe trend. "The pump is the basic silhouette for both street and evening shoes," the designer emphasized. '"The thin spindle heel is still a point of interest and there is a growing trend toward less height in these," he said. Developments of the Italian - inspired thin-heeled, pointed-toe pump are satin evening "oxfords," slashed low and laced over the instep with little gold cords. T-Strapped Sandar Then there is a T-strapped sandal (still closed at the toe) that's very reminiscent of those worn in the 1920s. This is made in daytime leathers, crepe or satin for cocktail wear and is decorated with jewel embroideries or completely beaded in beautiful bright colorings for satin evening styles. Gold brocades, gold-studded dots on black velvet, : solid beaded plaids, silks embroidered and appliqued with t h r e e-dimensional : flowers, and brilliant bands of multicolored velvet rib-boa"! sewed together in half-inch strips) are just few of the fabulous fabrics that compose evening slippers of unparalleled beauty and fashion excitement. The small, shaped heel (no higher, but far more graceful than a standard walking heel) is featured by David Evins on pointed puaaps and lightly laced-up daytime shoes of QUILTED leather! Bronze alligator is an ingenious and stunning leather treatment for simply elegant afternoon pumps, Tun to Paje 4, Column 3 TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 20, 1957 DAVID EVINS emphasizes the pointed toe with a "Midas Touch" like liarat gold filigree on the toe of a black suede pump, left.

But either way the customer gets his money's worth. THERE'S ALWAYS so much gping on. Second-stringers are always going on the field in place of first-stringers who are limping off. COACHES ARE always going off their rocker when their teams fumble in enemy territory. DOCTORS ARE always racing back and forth watching bone - crushing plays and proving that gridirons can get a little gory sometimes. FOOTBALL hasn't changed much since the days when I used to wave Saturday-afternoon pompons at fearless Trojans like John Ferraro, Gordon Gray and the Hardy and Callanan brothers. 1 CAME to this conclusion at the Coliseum Friday night when the Rams made mincemeat out of the Redskins. It was just like old times. TEAMS STILL wear helmets a size too big and knickers a size too small. And they still have noisy numbers on their backs and nasty cleats on their shoes. TO MAKE a successful football game, it still takes two teams on the field, several thousand quarterbacks in the stands and a flock of top sergeants running around waving handkerchiefs and blowing whistles. EACH TEAM gets four kid and accented with a jeweled button. Scarlet satin gels a bow on a V-throated pump; for daytime, red kid, quilted and padded, dUplays curving Queen Anne keeL chances to carry the ball across the goal line. If one team fails, the other team gets four whirls at it Methods of scoring range from passing, which is known as aerial warfare, to rushing, which is known as bloodshed. If they make it, it's known as a touchdown. AFTER a touchdown, the team tries to kick the ball between the goal posts. If successful it's a conversion and counts one point. Any other time it's a field goal and counts three points. ADMITTEDLY this sounds a little inconsistent, and frankly, you'd never catch me believing it except that Paul Schwegler said so. And Paul was an All-American at Washington State. THE RAMS-REDSKINS game was the big Times charity game. Proceeds went to the worthy Times Boys' Club. But while you might say I'm dedicated to The Times and everybody says its boys' clubs are a keen antidote to juvenile delinquency, that's not why I went to the game. .1 WENT because I'm a red-blooded American gal who's not about to turn down an invitation to a pregame party when it's a stag affair. IT WAS held at the Beverly Hills Club. Hosts were Alton Brody, Carl Hunt, Hans de Schulthess and L.A.'s ace partygiver, Paul Schwegler. Paul saw to it that I was seated between Director Charles Marquis Warren and Sam Leavitt, Sinatra's favorite cameramanmet Merit Oberon'j Part II ex-husband Lucien Ballare, Former SC Football Captain Nate Barrager and NBC's Fenton Coe and got to see old friends like Jack Foreman of CBS and Ken Morgan of Desilu Productions. COTTON WARBURTON turned out to be my choice for man-I'd-most-like-to-be-a-busmate-with. He's one of the all-time greats in the sports world. So while the Tanner bus honked its way to the Coliseum, I had a fascinating lesson on why Knute Rockne used the shift, how Bronko Na-gurski could weigh 230 and still run like a deer, and why, when in doubt, the boys always punt. OUR TICKETS were on the 50-yard line. (I'll bet that Schwegler never sat on the 49 in his whole life!) But I didn't see a bit of the game. I 'was sandwiched between two ex-ballplayers who'd make Man Mountain Dean look like a midget. And how they could reminisce. While everybody else was watching that Van fellow throw those bullet passes, my neighbors were telling how SC beat Carnegie Tech back In '29. , OH WELL, theihalftime color was worth the price of admission. THERE WAS even a Goodyear blimp lighting up the heavens with a blinking greeting to all 85,000 spectators. IT WAS the first Times extravaganza I ' ve ever watched. It certainly won't be the last. Our alma mater really did itself proud. Hugh A Ibert Baieman to Claim South Pasadenan in Fall Rite BY ELIZABETH GOODLAND, Times Society Editor Crowning the social news with romance is announcement of the engagement of Miss Angele Mary Elizabeth Durst who made her bow to Pasadena society at the Valley Hunt Club Debutante Ball in 1954, and Hugh Albert Bateman, a member of one of Los Angeles' exclusive assembly clubs, The Bachelors.

Andrea and her sister Carole have just returned from a five-week vacation in Honolulu and brought back cunning little kimono-clad dolls holding parasols to mark places for the luncheon guests, miniature paper butterflies and Japanese lanterns to add an Oriental touch to the yellow and white floral arrange-ments. The party is to be a paper shower for Nancy (she was presented at the Las Madrinas Debutante Ball last December) and will have the Bel-Air Bay Club's upper club as the setting.

Another bride-elect whose days have been happily over-flowing with preparations for her wedding Sept. 7 is REWARDING CAREER Field of BY ANNE NORMAN If you want a husband, go where there are a lot of single men. If you are thinking of a career, choose a field in which there is a shortage of trained personnel. That's the word given us yesterday by Julia Roybal, chief dietitian at Orthopaedic Hospital. Miss Roybal says there is only one trained dietitian today for every five needed in hospitals, industrial cafeterias, the Army, Navy, Air Force. Medical Corps, commercial aviation, railroads, schools, research, both industrial and J scientific and in nnhlir health.

While salaries are not too high in most instances they are going up and they compare favorably with salaries paid women in other professions. Prefers, Hospitals "Personally, I prefer working in hospitals. Among those I have served are Boston Community Hospital, California Hospital, Fresno Hospital and now Orthopaedic. "Here it is our job to help correct the mistakes made by Nature before a child's birth. Such malformations as club feet, dis-piasia of the hip and other congenital errors are corrected by medication, operations and, last but not least, diet.

Of course, they do all kinds of healing at Orthopaedic, but they specialize in the correction of children's handicaps-Right now Miss Roybal is busy with a mighty big job. They are building a new Orthopaedic Center to take care of the many new cases that must be handled as a result of the great increase in the Southland's population. There is a drive to raise $G,000,000 to construct a six-story, 157-bed addition to the existing facility. It will replace the old hospital building which was built in 1922 and almost immediately proved inadequate. It is Miss Roybal's job to seeing he. gets the, right kind few more months to go, but as every small boy should, Sobnrt Pntlsi pbow design and equip a new kitchen and serving center. Shesays she resolved the last time she had such an assignment that she would never do it again, but she's in the midst of studying the market for the latest available equipment and the most modern ways of preparing and serving the best possible meals at the least possible cost. "At Orthopaedic," she says, "we have a problem faced by most hospital dietitians. We must prepare a' variety of basic menus. We average 30 a month here, and about 15jof them must be modified for specific patients. "Take sodium, for example. A certain modified diet calls for a given number of milligrams of sodium. The dietitian must prepare a diet that supplies the right amount of that very important mineral.

"The sea can probably : u p p I y half the world's needs. Fish and marine vegetation contain So much food value that it is only a matter ot time before scientists and dietitians will find a way to convert them into practical use.

"I think being a dietitian :s a most rewarding and interesting profession. If -jirls planning to go to college this fall would investigate its possibilities. "And to get back to the business of getting a husband. Everybody knows that a well-fed husband is happy and contented, and who could feed a. husband better than a good dietitian?" v
