Heffner Once Nursed
By Famous Poet
The more one talks with Kutli Heff
ner, G. 11. S. senior, the more one
learns of her startling career. Ke-
cently it was discovered that in her
babyhood she was an intimate friend
of Carl Sandburg, who lived next door
to the Heffners in Arizona. In fact,
he quite frequently attended her as
a nurse maid because of his appre
hension for her safety.
His fear was that Euth would fall
into the fire, so he spent his time in
the Heffner home liolding on to her.
Imagine that! The author of “Chicago”
tightly clutc-hing the skirts of one
Senior High's best students!
