Tins ' things the .citizens of Greeley have done to. make our stay here such'a pleasant one. will never he forgotten. These^ soldiers whom you have treated so well aro going Into a war now to fight for freedom and the right to live; that people like the ·^ , citizens of Greeley. and other towns like It can go on living like human lielngs, in, peace and happiness for the rest of their lives; that. our children may live In peace and enjoy a happy-normal life, which we have not bad the. chance- to do.- They are going Into .a fight- now In. which many of them- will lose their lives, '.'.*·· but not one soldier ever, said the cause was not great enough to fight for or to give his life for; Perhaps ·they didn't look at the war before · like they do now, and maybe they were just a little bit 'selHsh, 1 hut now they have a new goal to work! for which thej- mlgbt not have had If the hospitality' shown toward .*'·· them here in Greeley. had not been so uuforgettable. "We, the class of 11-B, feel, as do those wirt) have passed thru your .. beautiful 'city before us, that the warm-heartedness shown the soldiers will 'never be forgotten; nor do we ever expect to find any close '" ; match for it! , .i'The citizens .oi Greeley have ^ built · a -town to be -well · proud of, :'and one -that .anyone would -be : proud to live In.,Some of these · yery fellows whom ypu have made . so momentarily happy .hive Joined the vast :machlne of - war with tlila .very'object In mind--to keep-.these happy homes and'beloved families .together.'

The Roman soldier used heavy·: hobnailed sandals, Church dignitaries, from the early Middle Ages on, .wore special shoes-of rich materials with .lavish decorations. '· Tiro extravagant shoes of Europe's .nobility and slate officials also were in striking, contrast to the simpler footwear o f ' t h e common people,' made generally ot cheap and roiigh leather, rawhide, eJoth, or felt. · ; . . Footnote on Fashion Men ot fashion frequently outpaced the women In extreme shoe design, bright colors, and expensive trimmings. Satin, silk, and velvet shoes were often embroidered, and decorated with precious . Jewels, gold, and -silver ornaments ami stitching. 1 Rosettes 'of ribbon, and ot gold arid silver'-lace were.set ac the instep, high red heels added eye'appeal. From'flaring, soft-leather boots, silk, fur, aud lace linings peeped coyly. · .'Many of the protective clogs aud galoshes--worn outdoors, over tho expensive.and delicate 1 house shoes --were . equally sumptuous, their thick soles Intricately carved, or Inlaid witlr Ivory and precious metals. In tho" days of tbe super long toes, such overshoes were more iike sled runners or skis than foot coverings! One freak style, popular at court during the late Middle Ages, dictated the wearing of a high boot and a love shoe at the .same time. In colonial America; the Puritans ouce passed laws to keep shoes plain and. Inexpensive,' especially for persons of little Income or position. In a 'court of Salem, Massachusetts, -In 1652, one man "wns presented for excess of boots, rib- ands, gou Id and silver laces."" Scientific Design Recent In modern museums, samples of varied, footgear worn at different limes and places, range from tho Clrinese - sliff-soled '-"rocker r . shoo to the upturned Turkish-harem slipper; from tho fea'ther-trlmmed pouchliko moccasin of the Australian bu slim an to the gold-embroidered white satin-shoe of an English archbishop.
