Michael Quinton, sales di- rector of Norvic of Norwich, says the smart woman in 1974 will want heels about half an inch higher than she has been wearing lately, probably up to three inches, though he thinks the popular 2V4-inch will go on selling.

Several leading firms have really got to grips with one big shoe de- signed in wider fittings for the young, smart woman. Only a few years ago it was assumed that if you needed a wide or extra-wide shoe you were an elderly lady whose interest lay solely in comfort, regardless of style. But re- search has shown that many young women want pretty, fashionable shoes but can't get into normal fittings. D. Henderson and Sons of Leicester has specialized in this field, making well-styled shoes that somehow contrive to look streamlined and ele- gant even in the widest fit- tings. One of Britain's most fa- mous firms in the field of shoe-styling, Holmes of Nor- wich, presents a collection for 1974 which it describes as "'refined and This firm has always produced shoes for the elegant, fashion- conscious woman rather than gimmicky styles for the way- out. Its current designs, use of materials and clever effects produced by texture and color balance are typical of the latest trends. As Peter Holmes, the com- pany's chairman, points out, there is a tendency towards higher heels and the soft, oval toe, with some models featur- ing a restrained version of the chisel toe, lasted to give the toe an This as its makers call it, is also used on shoes with rounded toes but is undoubt- edly most effective with the chisel line. That old favorite of the 1930s which Americans call the white shoe with brogued toecap in black, tan or navy, is tipped as a winner for 1974 and so is the lace-up, medium-heeled semi- sports shoe in two colors, such as off-white buffalo calf and black patent. These have a "period" flavor but are upto- the-minute shoe fashion. Among the new materials featured in the higher-priced ranges are lizard patent, calf stamped to simulate ostrich and real water-snake, the tex- ture of which is particularly effective when used in two pale contrasting colors such as beige with white for an ele- gant slingback by Holmes. All have low to medium-low heels and excellent details, such as contrasting soles and heels -The Herald Family Sweater girl Anne Hayes models the sweater representing the Edmonton Eskimos which has returned to the city from Sarnia along with two others. The sweaters, worth each, were stolen from the Football Mali of Fame. Hall director Larry Smith said Sarnia tourists to the city bought the sweaters on the street, unaware they were stolen. The other two sweaters were the Ottawa Rough Riders and the Toronto Argonauts. The homemaker By MARILYN C. TATEM District Home Economlit Picture yourself in a fabric shop surrounded by bolts and bolts of brightly colored, softly colored, stripes, plains, florals, checks, smooth finishes, crisp 'finishes, drapeable, crisp, or clingy. How is one to know which fabric to choose to suit a specific purpose? The final choice will be up to you, but perhaps the following information can help. The fibres in any fabric will lend their own characteristics to the characteristics of the fabric. Thus manufacturers can mix fibres to achieve the end result of a fabric with very nearly the exact characteristics and hand desired. In this way, textiles are designed to suit specific end uses; one example of this is the blending of polyester fibres with cotton to make long-wearing, perma-pressed fabrics commonly useful for things such as shirts, blouses and sheets. Textiles are divided into two main fibre groups natural fibres and man-made fibres. The natural fibres are from natural sources and are commonly known by their generic names which are: wool (and other animal hair silk, asbestoes, cotton, and linen. Each generic name can have none, one, or many trademarks. A generic name is the name of a family of fibres of similar chemical composition; wheras, the trademark is the name under which the fibre is commonly marketed. In some cases, the fibre may be marketed under the generic name as well; this results in confusion as the consumer may not know that Fortrel and Terylene are trademarks for Polester (the generic name.) Natural fibres have been commonly used since the beginning of man, thus their characteristics and care are well known to everyone. It is still important, however, to read instructions on the labels as the blending of natural fibres with man-made fibers (synthetics) often changes the care instructions. For instance, the addition of polyester to wool fabrics may strengthen the fabric enough to enable it to be washed. There are a number of generic groups of natural fibres they are: wool (and other animal hair silk, asbestoes, cotton, and linen. Of the man-made fibre category there are four groups: cellulose base, chemical, glass and metallic. In each of these groups we find one or more generic classes. Let first consider the glass groups. Glass with the generic name of Glass use glass as the material trom which they are for may. Trademarks include Fiberglass and Vitron. Glass fibres do not burn, they are strong, and they are not affected by moisture or sunlight, however, abrasion resistance is low. Care instructions include laundering in warm water with mild soap or detergent; drip dry without wringing or flexing. Do not iron. Watch for a continuation of fibres and their characteristics next week.

CALGARY (CP) Many of tomorrow's hard-core criminals are children who are being abused today delegates to a conference on child abuse and neglect were told. Dr. Bart Schmitt, assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado Medical Center said President John Kennedy's assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, was badly beaten as a child and that Governor George Wallace's assassin once wrote: "My mother must think I'm a canoe, she paddles me so much." But of greater concern that the potential for future violence is the present effect of child abuse on children, he said. "They live in fear of their parents, cower in corners, feel abandoned and often feel hungry." Based on conservative United States statistics, a city the size of Calgary has 150 cases of physical abuse every year, he said, adding that an average of two battered children die every day in the U.S. But there are other forms of child abuse and neglect, he said, such as nutritional abuse, sexual abuse, drug abuse, medical care neglect and emotional abuse. He cited cases where parents had deprived their children of water in an attempt to toilet train them, given their children adult doses of sedatives to keep them from crying and deprived their diabetic children of insulin on the advice of itinerant preachers.
