In grandmother's day shoes came up above the ankles for everything but formal dress Or summer wear. Then the ankle high oxford became the rage for all year round, both for men and women, and since our feet got that break, shoes have been consistently cut away here and there until little remains but soles and heels and not so much of them. To Greek Sandals. We're getting back to the Greek sandal--soles with straps to hold them on--and that's all to the good, in my estimation. Feet need sunshine, too, and there are fewer foot troubles to worry about the less they are confined in hot, unventilated leather. Some of the late sandals have no toes at all. These are designed for more or less formal daytime affairs, however. For daylight dining or the cocktail hour, at the end of the day while it is still light, white kidskin sandals are swanky, with navy blue heels and trim, including a strap across the instep, to match your navy dress. The trimming may be brown, if you wish, or another color, to match any desired ensemble. The straps are 'particularly tricky as they loop through a slot in the shoe to fasten across the instep. For Afternoon Wear. To wear with afternoon sheers or pastels white one eyelet ties have the necessary formality. Wedge shaped cutouts emphasize the unusual moccasin effect on the vamp and the pointed tongue and ribbon bows are nice feminine details. The heels are neither too high nor too low. _ Crushed kidskin is a new note in shoe modes for intensive summer wear and perforated elaborately for coolness, in sunburst desisrn. A white summer handbag.of corded leather, finished with mother-of-pearl orna. ment, makes a nice accompaniment to these shoes.

Papp-Tiede Wedding at Luveme Church LUVERNE, July 15.--The wedding of Miss Elda Tiede, daughter of Fred Tiede of Luverne, and Joseph Papp of Detroit was solemnized at the Zion Lutheran church Friday by the Rev. L. Wittenberg. Mrs. George Hanselman, aunt of the bride, played the "Bridal Chorus" from "Lohengrin." Charles Wolf and Mrs. Wilma Mosher sang "I Love You Truly" preceding the ceremony. Edwin Hanselman and Walter Tiede were ushers. Mrs. Martha Lo- theringer of Davenport, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid. Norma Jean Hanselman was flower girl and Jimmie Lotheringer, small nephew of the bride, was ring bearer. Mr. Papp was attended by the bride's brother, Mayor George Tiede, best man. Immediately after the ceremony and a short wedding sermon by Mr. Wittenberg, a reception was held at the bride's home where dinner was served by Mrs. Hoest assisted by Miss Florence Hintz and Miss Edna Hoest. Covers were laid for 20. The bride was graduated from the local school and the City college of Detroit and for the past six years has been a teacher in the Detroit schools. Mr. Papp is an engineer in a large steel and die factory in Detroit. They left for Detroit Saturday afternoon, stopping enroute at Ventura and Davenport for visits with relatives and will be at home in Detroit After Aug 1. .;, Parents Should Work for Gradual Emotional Independence of Child By GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Hundreds of children whose parents can afford to send them to a summer camp won't go because they and their parents have not yet been emotionally weaned from each other. For like reasons there are maoy homesick children who return from camp after a few days never to go back. "My dear Dr. Myers: I am writing in regard to the problem of sending my 10 year old niece to a Y camp for two weeks. Her parents realize the advantages that would come to her. and are eager- to have her take the opportunity. But on the other hand, the thought of the 'going and staying' on the part of the girl turns her 'green.' She feels she would adore it--if she could only go home at night. What should we do under such circumstances? We know she needs just what the camp would do for her. We'd like your advice." I advised that the date for going to camp be set, if possible, at "least two weeks hence, and be announced and the child told that she will go; that there be no argument, and no suggestion at all that she might not go. I suggested that in the meanwhile both parents plan to be away from home several nights, not in succession, with the child left home, preferably once or so with a partial stranger; then to have the child spend a night or two away from home without the parents. I added that the time before camp might, however, be too short for healthful training this year, in which event the parents should begin at once to "wean" her for next summer. Let me entreat my fellow parents of a younger child to begin immediately to cultivate in him grad ual emotional independence, so tha such a problem as this one coul not arise. Children Learn to Sleep Late. "Dear Mr. Myers: After read ing your column in the paper, I more than tempted to write you Your technic of training youn children to sleep beyond the we hours of the morning is not only in teresting but positively correct. "I have a little boy of 4. and a little girl of 2. From the day they were born they have slept regularlj every solitary morning until a least 9 o'clock. And my sleep ha: never been disturbed in the morn ing by them. 'And how have I accomplished this? By the very method you ad vocate. A few little smacks on their bottoms will do the trick. "I assure you that I am a faithful reader of your column, and wil continue to be as long as you write." HELPING THE HGMEMAKER By MRS.
