Boosting Her Total

SANDOVAL, Ill., April 4.---
A physician, arriving too late to officiate at the birth of a son
to Mrs. Otto Heinrich, found a young woman who
had served as mid-wife bathing the infant. "Are you a
nurse?" he asked. "No, a census taker," she replied.

Found in The Winnipeg Evening Tribune, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, April 4, 1940, page 20.
