Today’s comic comes from Our Boarding House, which ran from 1921 through 1984. This particular one is from September 4, 1968. It has a (troublesome) theme we’ve seen many times before.
On the other hand, this one is particularly pernicious. Note that it approves of smashing and distorting feet. You just need to squeeze and reshape them to fit shoes. The third kid has shoes that probably come close to actually fitting, but that will soon be rectified as they gradually inure his feet to being misshapen.
Shades of Chinese foot-binding.
