H. Leivick, Yiddish poet and playwright, leaves today for Denver, Colo., for a year’s rest at the Spivak Sanatorium, which is operated by the Jewish Consumptive Relief Society. This is the second time the distinguished writer has been forced to enter the sanatorium. Several of the poet’s plans, among them a trip to South America, have been postponed indefinitely.
