HAGGER ! -CARRADINE ""BRIAN i ^on'fplCTURt ' Gold Glitters SOME THINGS GLITTER THAT ARE NOT GOLD All ladies are women, but not all women are ladies. Good and bad I love them all. After all they are the ones that raise the families and buy 80 per cent of all goods sold at retail. Some are clever, some are selfish. In dealing you find more arrogance in what we call the upper grust than you do in the common herd. I like common people. They are honest; they say what they think. I talk to a woman just like I talk to a man. If I say anything I am sorry for I am generally glad of it. Every woman loves a bargain. The sensible woman when on a shopping,tour is not buying atmosphere or the fancy fixtures in a store. She is looking for values. • She doe£ not pay $5.00 for a pair .of Patricia Pat pumps for she knows she can buy them at Nevilles for $3.50. Along with style she wants wear, durability and comfort. She knows there are a lot of unrationed shoes on the market— many of them made out of chicken feathers and putty. They are~like wooden nut megsr^-just made to sell. The International Shoe Co. is now putting pn a nation-wide advertising program explaining the shoe situation fully. They say there is good leather enough left to keep up the quality of certain shoes. They ought to know for they are the largest makers^ of shoes in the world today. J hope they are right. Jimrnie Neville THE SHOP MAN The Rev. Father J.
