Healthy Feet Shouldn't Be Wrecked BY ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Most lucky teen-agers have little trouble with the looks of their feet. Teen-age shoe styles are made in sizes plenty big for big feet. Athletics, swimming and long hours of going barefoot keep down blisters, callouses and toes grown under each other. Paradoxically, it is for this very reason that when the trouble arrives, it really arrives in force. Feet that have been well cared for have grown in their full size rather than being turned under and cramped, Chinese-style. So when teen-agers move into pumps, they may find them miserably uncomfortable. Particularly is this true in the inexpensive lines that are the budget-bound teener's favorites. Some of these lines don't come in A, B. and C widths, but tfily narrow and medium. Such a shoe is no fit for a wide, healthy t«en foot. Feet used to comfortable loafers and wide-heeled tennis shoes scream in anger when poked into an ill-fitted pump made for a more dainty foot. There's no point in trying to 'break" the feet into the shoes. Those feet are not gotn to get any smaller for some years. They will only get "pump heels," blisters, callouses, infections and trouble. If there are no pumps of a decent cut and fit available locally, stay with oxfords or saddle shoes until they :an be found. Bits of News f-^erionat Mr. and Mrs. W. F.
