Friends from Denver.
From far-off Denver, where she is
spending her vacation, Miss Jean
Shanklin, teacher of the primary
grade in the city schools, sends a mes
sage of love to her little friends thru
The Index. Miss Shanklin, in a note j
to the editor says: "I am having a
very pleasant and interesting vaca
tion, but will be ready for school
work when the time comes, though
this is a delightful city in which to
spend one's life, for like the city of
Jerusalem it is glorious for situa
