KID SHOW SAT. 9 A.M. Folklore Study Bores Some Odd Practices LOS ANGELES (IP*—A comnre- hensive book on American folklore is being completed here by Dr. Wayland Hand, a folklore scholar on the University of California campus. The book reviews many old superstitions and practices which, Hand said, originated mostly in Europe, but some of which have taken on a peculiar American twist. The throwing of old shoes at newlyweds, for example, embodies ancient beliefs in the “shoe as a symbol of fertility. Hand said that articles of clothing have always played a prominent role in superstitions involving relationships between man and wife. For example, the folk notion still is current in some isolated parts of North Carolina that if a girl puts on a boy’s hat, it’s a sign she wants to kiss him. In many states, it is a folk ritual to burn the father’s hat after his first born child is born. This is believed to insure the child a good healthy start in life.
