He says the federal government also ought to «peed up Die Rcqulsi- tton of some 450,000 acres of private lands now inside the national parks. At the rale of iand acquisition^ Sviih funds iiow available, says . Chapman, the process will lake at least JOO years. The private lands tend to become more expensive as time passes, and there Is the further danger that some ol (heir park values may be lost If they remain In private hands. > Chapman recently nired his views on National Park Service problems before the national conference state parks. In general his policies follow those of his predecessor, J. A. Krag. IJke Krug. he stresses the point that there shall be no encroachment upon the parks " the welfare or safety of the nation requires II." 1 He has gone further than Krug In Indicating that where rlvnl recreational and water-use needs of an area are equal, he may be on the side of interior's Reclamation Bureau against Interior's Park Service. Nwrts Are Kxpantling- "Where the construction of a reservoir, dam or transmission line would damage scenic, scientific, historical or recreational resources of greater value to the nation than the economic benefits anticipated, (he greater value should be protected," Chapman says. v: . "However, we cannot fail to rec- bknlze that Ihe neeils of a rising 'population aud an expanding economy-are giving Increased impor- v \ tance to our programs for develop- aVent aud utilization of the nation's limited water and other natural rc: sources." ' ~ Chapman says that all the lands -now used by federal agencies, states •or. communities for parks and rec- reatton are Inadequate for an in- creating—ami increasingly leisured .^-population. •'•• "The United States as a whole Is •specially lacking in beach aud "coastal lands," he says. "Opportunt- ' i.Wes to preserve ocean and lake "front lands are fast diminishing. •We need to accelerate the effort to get the best of what is left." ,c Chapman says he also is. strongly :*v favor of: . '" i.

And (n pre-war days men with arge 1 kickers had real trouble flnd- ng shoes to fit them. They got a little wcury of being lolcl, "Why don't you wear suitcases?".. And they also got tired of paying $40 to $15 for custom built ihoes—as few stores stocked any- Llilng beyond size II or 12. Bernle Lazarus became aware of [his problem while selling shoes to :he army during the war. He discovered about three per cent of '.he troops had extra size feel. "Why shouldn't someone cater :o thcsee forgotten men when peace comes?" he asked a supply major. "It's a terrific idea," said the major. So Beriiler and two friends launched tlie King-size Shoe Company. The firm had 1,000 'customers at the end of a year. By the close of 1919 it had 25,000 customers and I better than a-$250.000 turnover. Among the customers 'are a museum curator, a Broadway producer Hollywood stars, and at least one governor. ''The governor is Big Jim Folsom of Alabama," said Lazarus. "But I can't tell you the names of the Hollywowod actors. They want to keep it a secret. Men Sensitive About Bij; Feet He has found that many men are-extremely sensitive about their over-size feet. In self-conscious letters they refer to them as "my ten- de.- while kickers." "my teenic-ween- ies." or "my little tootsies." Lazarus—he's a size 11-1J2 himself—has found even In a specialty business it is commercially. Impracticable to stock shoes larger than size IB. But as a matter of sentiment will try to shoe men with even "emperor-size" feet. "Tlie only man I wasn't able to do anything for was a famous wrestler," Bernie smiled. "He had a foot as wide as a table." He says there appears to be no direct connection between big feet and a man's own physical size race or occupation. So far as he knows only'one of his customers is detective. Customer pressure has forced Lazarus to enter the large sock field too. "We had trouble getting any manufacturer to make oversize socks because they thought the market was too small," he said. "But our customers complained lo wear a standard-size sock they either had to cut out the toes or else pull the heel down under the arch of their fooU-whfch didn't make for comfort." One hard-to-fit customer in the Philippines, fearful the firm wouldn't be in business long, ordered 50 pall's of shoes at one clip. Another wired to have his pair sent special delivery, "as I can't get married until they get here." Big footed men are extremely style-conscious.
