Cpl. Warren Heiden




The 24-year-old twin sons of Mr. and Mrs. George Heiden, 4333 University ave., who arranged their 15-day leaves so they could be home together, mix a pitcher of lemonade. They are Aviation Machinist Mate Second Class Willis T. Heiden (left), an instructor at Norfolk, Va., and Corp. Warren Heiden, stationed at the dental clinic, Drew Field, Tampa, Fla.  They had not seen each other since an unplanned meeting between trains in Chicago, Ill. , more than a year ago.  They have a younger brother who is stationed with the naval air force in the South Pacific.
