Ono of the oddest things iibout our recovery program is that there should be such unanimous agreement on the goal to be reached anil such widespread difference of opinion about the proper way to #el there. Secretary of Agriculture Wallace summed up the essentials of the New Deal in bis recent book, "New Fron- liei's." As an exposition of the aims of the administration, his summing tip is worth looking at. According to Mr. Wallace, these aims are as follows: A job for everyone who wants one. Wages so high that no one will be in serious want. Working hours so short that everyone will have enough leisure to enjoy life. Insurance against unemployment anil old age—and, possibly; against injury and illness. 4 Decent bousing for all, al moderate COS!. '•• , .,.-... ,.,., Planned use of the land and other natural resources so that they will not be wasted. Continuance of such essentials of liberty as free speech, freedom of the press, and free conscience.

Those of us who hope lo see improvement made within the capitalist framework can find little to iiuarrel with in this agenda. But when wo pass from contemplation of the goal lo consideration of Ihe way it is to bo reached, we immediately gel into all kinds of arguments. Are we to get these things by giving industry iu i lcil ,| 01 . lly []i recUn) , it from Washington? By tariff reduction or by an increased nationalism? ' By dollar devaluation, inflation, or a rigorously "sound" monetary policy? By production control, wage donation', or tax reduction?

If the heels of the shoos arc too high and if the supporting surface above the heel is thrown too far forward, Ilic foot is jammed into the toe cap. This cramps the action of the to;s and anises corns between the toes. If the shots or stockings happen to be too short, the tors are curled up with the nails resting on the -sole ot the shoe. This will also result In the appcviranc:: of corns on the pads near the nails. If Ihc sole ol the shop is too narrow, the ends of the small bones in the toes will \K forced downward niirt calluses will \ K found j n the foot. The best evidence of this is DID fact that the S0 !s of the shoes is pressed down in the middle and shows little sign of wear at thc edges. If there is a callus at thc back of thc heel without signs of wear on the lining of the ihoc- on either side, ihe heel of (h: shoe is probably too wide.
