It has occurred to me often, In fact, that one reason many women leap eagerly at the opportunity (o have their souls searched and their subconscious minds plowed up is the joyous prospect of kicking off their shoes and stretching: out In luxury for an hour on that well- known expensive couch. Every now and then some thinker Rets to thinking about progress and finally concludes that, with the horseless carriage, the taxi-cab, the plane and the kiddle car, feet are becoming obsolete. Some scientists have predicted that it's only a matter of time until .through disuse, human feet disappear entirely. Speaking personally—but I'll bet on behalf of most adult females of the country—that day can't come soon enough to please me- I know lots of men who never Ihink about, feet—their own or anyone else's. But I don't know a single woman who doesn't grab every pos- riM* (tout to itlp out of htr ihot* ma for a t«w klMwd minutM.

To get a rough Idea of the numbers of female cltizeni who aren't exactly easy on their feet, look around any department store counter, any commuter platform or cashier's line in a supermarket. Mosti waiting women take a stance some- I thing like that of a wading bird- standing on one foot at a time while resting the other. Men just stand firmly, feet planted on the ground'- women In shoes with high heels rarely do. I'll wager, u one who suffers twelve months a year from a chronic complaint I propose to call "beat feet," that more families break up per year because Mama Is Irritable and uncomfortable In her spikes than from . all the psychosomatic problems piled together. I suspect that shoes are the root of everything from nagrinj backache to common, garden nagging. But don't for a moment biame this on the shoe manufacturers. Most of us silly women would rather teeter, hobble, suffer and feel generally wretched wearing three- inch heels and showing off something known as "a trim pair of ankles," than be comfortable, well- grounded and carefree in those sturdy leather Jobs referred to as Prisoners Get Supplies Now HANOI. Indochina (/O—The Com- munlst-led Vletmlnh consistently fall to answer plens of the International Bed Cross to perirlt the delivery of foodstuffs and medicines to captives held by the Vletmlnh — but they're being delivered anyway. French planes, flying over prisoner of war camps In Vietminh- held territory, have just dropped another eight tons of badly needed supplies Most medicines and foodstuffs were parachuted in North Viet Nam. around Yen Bay, Tuyen- uang and Quang-Yen, and in the Thanh-Hoa area. 90 miles south of Hanoi. French Union soldiers and officers held prisoners by the Vietminh long have been short of foods and medicines. The Vietmin hare estimated to hold about 4,0000 men from Prance and the French Union, and may have upwards of 2(1,000 Vietnamese captives. "sensible" shoes. I also believe that we women would fight to (he last ditch to preserve our feet if for no other reason thai we could continue to wear our high heels.
