Sunday, September 16, 1951 Page 4 Here and There in Southern Oklahoma ELMO CURRY GLENN, who began his career as a printer with this paper, was here Wednesday. He came to bury his mother who was 85 at her passing. Glenn has been a linotype operator many years with the Tulsa World. But he was never prouder in his life than the first time he got away from home and got a job that paid him enough to live on. When he felt the security his first job gave him, he wrote a letter back home to the paper where he first started.
