Vary Height Of Shoe Heel By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor When a leading woman in the world of Paris fashion made a trip to the United States, she told the somewhat startled reporters that she had about 40 pairs of shoes — all cut from the same last. For a woman confident of her taste, this is a wonderful idea, but one sincerely hopes, for the sake of the health of her legs and feet, that this woman was leaving some of the story untold. , For her chosen shoe was a handsome calf pump with the slimmest and highest of heels. Women who, by virtue of their work or position, must wear pumps most of the time should most definitely have a firm, comfortable pair of flat heels for wear on the q.t. For, if you wear high heels as your only shoes, you will find that the muscles of the legs take up to conform to the position of your foot. And pretty soon you find that the calves of your legs are very uncomfortable when you're out of your pumps. To avoid the discom-: fort, you find yourself doing'laun-j dry or Washing dishes in your heels. And so on. The circle needs to be broken some time during the day by wearing: flat heels, low heels or going barefoot. The shortening of the muscle is less drastic, but the general idea is close to the ancient practice of binding feet. Our fine, well-designed bodies are made to conform to some idea of beauty that wrecks the design. Red is for spring this year. It's at its prettiest accented sharply with black-and-white.
