Shoes Are Important To Ordinary Citizen > Ordinary citizens are going to have to depend more and more on shoe leather, now that tires are be ing rationed. Miss Julia Mclver, as sistant extension clothing specialist of N. C. State College, says this calls for better protection of shoes.

The home economist says that pol ishing shoes regularly isn't just a cranky notion. Polishing shoes feeds the leather, makes it pliable, and protects it. "Hie life of literally thousands of pairs of shoes is shortened by failure to dry them properly," said Miss Mc lver. "Water-proofing shoes helps protect them, but doesn't take the place of rubber overshoes or rubber boots for walking in water, soft mud or slushy snow. Shoes which become wet should be dried slowly, not too close to an open fire, and never In a hot place like the top of a radiator sg-r in the oven. "TTie right way to dry shoes," the clothing specialist explained, "is this: First, wash off all mud with a damp cloth and wipe the surface as dry as possible. Oil the shoes lightly all ov erwith castor oil. Rub it in well. Straighten the counters, heels, toes and vamps if they need it.

Ceilings Are Being Placed On Prices Folks who've been "hitting the ceiling" at encountering higher prices may be consoled slightly in the news that ceilings are now hit ting back at prices. Leon Henderson's OPA has been nailing a lot ot roofs over manufacturers' and wholesal ers' price schedules the last week or so. Women's nylon hosiery, radios and phonographs, and tea are three of the most conspicuous items thus far In most cases the maximums are based on prices of the Oct. 1-15 per iod. While none of the orders was directed official at retail prices, the action at least gives the ordinary consumer something of a guide as to what he should expect, or accept, in the way of price tag boosts when he goes to the store. In fact, Hender son vouchsafed a warning that retail prices on nylon hose were already "as high as they can be permitted tu go" and "requested" radio makers to hold any changes in their suggested retail prices to figures providing no more than normal mark-up Sweets National agricultural leaders are pointing out that some of the natur al sweets, such as honey and cane sorghum, can be used effectively as a sugar substitute in the average family diet GOOD LOT FOR SALE Loralcil on Wattw Street in Williawatoii near Melhodiwt 4'liurcli.
