Leather boots sport bold straps, and buckles, at top of boot or across instep. Boots also have moccasin themes, hardware trim and wide slash-type elastic goring. Fleecy shearling linings provide lightweight warmth for strictly cold-weather boots. Pantboots or. demi boots highlight many styling features found in slip-ons —, monk straps, hardware, perfs. In addition, they often use gored insets. To accommodate teen tastes, laced leather oxfords liven up in a number of ways. Zippy two-tone spectator ties are colorful ahd popping with, perforations.^ Ghillies for school and every day sometimes sport contrast laces or brass-rimmed eyelets, while oxfords are laced with floppy ribbon ties. A new kind of casual is the leather "track shoe" tie. trim in appearance and soft on the foot. In the date-and-dance department are leather sandals and pumps. To wrap up the teen scene - for fall, there.are soft leathers, high-cut lines and lots • of different styles — shoes designed as great go-withs for the fluctuating lengths and looks in apparel. Teens can choose from high-tongued and wrapped- look slings and pumps, boots,. pantshoes and bootees, dress sandals, new oxford and moc versions and other, shoe i styles. Their American leathers ' also display a full sweep of finishes — smooth, grained, . brushed, waxy, suede, embossed; clear and crushed patent leathers. Latest leather pumps show off a variety of' silhouettes . from opened-up and strapped to high-front closed ver- • sions. Best for class are high- tongued pumps, rigged out with perfs, quilting, fringe or hardware. The brass or silver might be chain, studs, bar bit or D- rings holding a leather strap. Heels come . low, mid or high. The lower the hem be-. ing worn, the higher the . shoe heel as a rule. Pants outfits take almost all heel heights except the very high. High-cut leather pumps with a more-leather wrapped air about them are teen pleasers, with or without sling-back. Broad-banded sandals, sometimes set on a slim platform sole, also' have a wrapped effect when the bands lie high on the instep. Spectator-trim pumps, ballet slipper styles and the reliable moccasin are other schooltime smarties. The moc — in glove, waxy, brushed and crushed patent Rules of the Road CHICAGO (UPI) -Prompted by the idea that youngsters should start learning traffic safety when they get their first set of wheels, Illinois has instituted the nation's first junior version of drivers' education this fall—for bike riders. Schools throughout the state devote classroom time not only to basic safety rules of bicycling but bike maintenance, the meaning of right of way and other traffic laws. Basis of the program is an 80 -page illustrated booklet published by the secretary of state and distributed by the Drivers' Education Division of the Department of Public Instruction. Demand was so great that the original printing order was exhausted before the program was scheduled to begin officially. The booklet tells grade and junior high students everything from the fact that the first bike, 150 years ago, was called a Draisine after its German Inventor, Baron Karl von Drais, to how to dismantle, clean and reassemble crank hanger bearings. o Schools take their cue from the book. For example, in Quincy, 111., some teachers brought bikes into their classrooms to show pupils how to clean and grease wheel bearings and hand brakes. "Each" teacher in grades three through eight is devoting a. week this fall to the program and next spring, we plan to do the same thing in grades one and two," said Dr. Leonard Rollins, principal of Quincy's Washington School. Some classes are producing a play called "the Talking Bicycle," written by the National Safety Council, to underscore the book's message, Rollins said. The point that the program stresses is .that bicycles are a normal part of traffic, not something separate, and that they are subject to many of the same laws as cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles. The format of the publication itself is so similar to the motor vehicle "Rules of the Road" publication for Illinois drivers that many adults mistake It at first glance. HELEN HELP US! by Helen Bottel— Cruel and Unusual Treatment This column is for young people, their problems and pleasures, •troubles and fun. As with the rest of Helen Help US!, it welcomes 'laughs but won't dodge a. serious question with a brush-off. Send your teen-age questions to YOUTH ASKED FOR IT, care of Helen Help US1 this newspaper. Dear Helen: A few days ago a friend took three two-months old puppies into the Humane Society because he couldn't find homes for them. He thought they'd be placed. Less than four hours later, someone called him to tell him about a little girl who wanted a dog, so my friend telephoned the |Society—and they said the puppies had already been put to sleep. The tragic thing is that the woman in charge assured him they would try to find good homes for the animals — and then they were gassed just four hours later! Helen, does this happen often? — NANCY ' • Dear Nancy: Fm assured by several animal shelters that it doesn't happen often, and shouldn't happen at all unless the dogs are incurably sick. Animals are kept for a specified period — not hours but usually days — and real effort is made to find them homes. Surely this was a mistake! -- H. Dear Helen: Pd like to add a few words to "Divided's" version of "What are Separated Parents?" Separated parents are ones that used to love each other and had three children born out of that love, but now only see each other to discuss divorce plans. It's when your Dad comes over to get his mail and leaves, still burning from the argument he and Mom just had. It's Dad calling and asking you and your little brother if you] have anything special to talk to him about and you answer, "No,' knowing that your thoughts and feelings wouldn't change the dec! sion he's already made. It's having Mom go out and get a job, and coming home from school to an empty house. It's having people say, "Hey, I saw your father the other day", and you answer, "Oh really?" knowing it's beendays since YOU'VE seen him. It's when Mom has appointments with the lawyer and she always comes back crying. If s putting the house up for sale because she can't manage it alone. It's running out of excuses when people ask, "Where's your dad" because you just can't bear to say the words, "They're getting a divorce." It's thinking, "Whos going to carve the Thanksgiving turkey?" Or wiU there be one? It's remembering that a little while ago itwas "our furniture," and the dishes belonged to the family. Now it's "Your father's chair." "Your father will be coming over tomorrow to pick out HE dishes," etc. It's wondering what went wrong along the way and wondering if anything will ever be wholly right again.— DIANE Dear Helen: My mother doesn't make sense to me. She says I can wear pants on "cold" days, but I guess she means below freezing, because when the other girls are in pants I still have to wear dumb dresses — and it gets awfully cold in classes. Isn't 60 degrees okay for pants? — COLD! Dear Cold: It is for me, but I'm not your mother. Hope she "unthaws" soon. — H.

Address Helen Bottel in care of the TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE, Greenhands "Keep Smiling" Mobile school on a barge SAN JUAN, P.R. (UPI) Puerto Rico soon may have its first mobile school - a barge that would steam around the island bringing vocational classes to the coastal towns. Secretary of • Education Ramon Mellado told of the project. He said the barge would be provided without charge by the U.S. Office of Educational opportunity (OEO) The floating school would accommodate four or five complete workshops for technical and vocational instruction, Mellado said. ? • The idea of.mobile schools to alleviate the islands severe classroom shortage was suggested in a report by the governor s advisor}' council. Mellado said he believed in trying out any new idea, and that the barge would' be one way to bring vocational training to more students. In discussing the proposed floating workships, Mellado stressed that the project was ' not viewed as a substitute for conventional schools.

(Staff Photo by Vi Burr) Don't Let Your Muffler Show Here's a new game to keep the kiddies occupied as youdriv* over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house on Thanksgiving. It's called, "Spot the Muffler". You give the little people a nickel for every muffler they spot lying along the freeway. By the time you have returned home, they may have enough nickels to buy you a new exhaust system. Of all the car parts you're likely to find strewn along the road of life, mufflers are by far the most common. And for every nuffler you see, there has been a vignette to go with it. For a muffler never falls off a car, unnoticed. It produces a scraping sound as it begins its departure from your car. Then there is the ear splitting roar as your exhaust, unsilenced, belches forth from the engine. You also may experience the noxious effects of carbon monoxide creeping into your car from, the broken exhaust system. If you're lucky, the car behind you will manage to avoid becoming entangled with your muffler as it bounces to a stop along the highway. But if your, muffler should find its way Into ther steering mechanism of that car, disaster! Why do mufflers fall off? Occasionally because of improper installation, but most often because of advanced deterioration of the exhaust system. When the pipes, brackets and clamps that bold a muffler in place have gone the way of all metal, the muffler clanks to the ground, followed by the race car roar of your engine, followed by the sound of your sobs as you pay your, repair bill. A rusted out muffler gives you plenty of warning, by sight if not by sound. But some car owners put off on-the-Iift services where their cars receive the inspections that would, help avoid such problems.
