She Loves Sandals By ALICIA HART NBA Beauty Editor It is good to hear the other side of beauty matters. For what often seems to be a gross abuse of good grooming techniques is something that's much more comfortable to some women than "good taste." The matter of mature women, sandals and platform soles is one such case. Many women often wear these and suffer great discomforl in the interests of "beauty." This column urges clothes that are comfortable as well as morale-building, for the sake of beauty. So here writes a reader in defense of the sandal and the platform sole: "May this sufferer of many years rise to the defense of sandals? For me, the less shoe the better. I'm happier in summer when I wear shoes without toes or heels. "And platform soles!. They are the great and good friends of sensitive soles. No more callouses since I discovered them. Several friends have agreed with me that thicker soles have solved their problems, too.. "We tall gals don't object to adding a half-inch to our stature if we can be comfortable."

But for the women who force sore feet into fashionable shoes for the pure sake of looks; she is not beau- tifyfng herself.
