Exclusive Flip-Top cleaning. No wonder Nowlco k the world's tergesteeWng shaverv suroma qua laudel MANY PEOPLE GET A LOT of pleasure out of bird watching. They sneak up on our fine feathered friends, and while the b rds aren't looking, observe their characteristics, note their coloring, their natural habitat and their manner of living. Often while observ- .ng, watchers find many habits in birds that seem almost human. * * * ' I WONDER WHAT IT WOULD BE like if the shoe were on the other foot — or rather if the notebook were in another claw. If the birds turned to people watching, would they find characteristics m us that to them seem almost bird-like? At the risk of having somebody say this column is "strictly for the birds", I'm going to point out a few of the human characteristics as they might look to our avian. friends. » * THE FIRST VARIETY OF HUMAN we are going to consider is the Ruffled Grouse. This is.not a particularly rare species andits found practically anywhere, in homes, offices, farms, and factor es and at the bridge table. As the name implies the Ruffled Grouse is always flustered over something and he complains audibly ana constantly. The female is always stewing about how her hair IOOKS she worries about whether or not the cake is going to fall; and sne just knows she could have made a grand slam if her partner hadn t led to her weak suit. The male usually has an ulcer, because he can't take anything calmly. Routine business deals upset him, tne kids drive him wild, and the headlines in the newspapers each morning send his blood pressure up ten poiirts. The characteristic cry of the Ruffled Grouse sounds something like Oh, me! On, rnyi and ends with a slow sighing sound or a distinct snort of indignation. * « * . . . THE NEXT TWO SPECIES are the Night Loving Owl and the Homing PiSeon. Unfortunately, in humans, these two are usually married to each other. The Owl doesn't get going until the sun goes down, and along about midnight he really gets to hooting. The Homing Pigeon, on the other hand, no sooner gets to a party than she seeks out her spouse and either by a o^uick grab of her talons or a cry from her beak, tells him it's high time they were going home. There's a great deal of conflict between these two and sometimes, if they each follow their natural .instincts, the Night Loving Owl stays hooting away at the party, white the Pigeon heads for home— : alone! THE CHICKADEE IS A CHEERFUL type to have around because it is always chirping. No matter how bad times get the Chickadee always claims they are going to get better If somebody 'breaks both of .his legs, the Chickadee chirps cheerfully, Well it could be a lot worse, it could have been your neck". The Chickadee is always confident that her needs will always be provided for, and amazingly, most of the time she turns out to be right. THEN WE HAVE THE RAVEN, a human of superstition and gloom. If the Ravin walks, under a ladder, it upsets him for days and breaking a mirror can make him have a nervous break-down which actually brings him seven years of bad luck The Raven looks on the dark side of any situation. If you give*him a doughnut, he ignores the glaze and notices only the, hole; if he sees a rose, he doesn't notice the fragrance, just the thorn; and he always forgets your birthday but always remembers your age. ROMANCE AND AFFECTION IS portrayed by Love Birds who are always billing and cooing. Most of the world loves Love Birds as long as they stay in their proper habitat which is generally a very private cage, but when we have to sit behind a pair of them in the movies, Love Birds can be quite disgusting.. However, once the mating season Js over and nesting ,.is well established iove, Birds sometimes change characteristics. The cooing stops but there is still a lot of billing. The female then.Tias been known to call her mate a Buzzard, while he refers to her as an old crow. * * * THE TYPE CALLED THE'MOCKING BIRD can make beautiful music—only it's usually somebody else's song he is singing, because he hasn't had an original idea of his own during his whole life span. He sings Parity with the farmers, Closed Shop with the laborers, Nixon with the republicans, the Administration Blues with the democrats, Federal Aid with the educators, and Lower Taxes with almost anybody. ONE SPECIES OF HUMAN, is much inclined to fat. However, she always claims she eats, "just like a bird". She does, .too! She eats like an Ostrich—everything in sight. Then, there is the Mourning Dove whose hobby is funerals. She attends all last rites, whether she knew the deceased or not, and the obituary column is her favorite form of reading. NOW, ALL SELF-RESPECTING BIRDS know that the more brilliant the plumage in a male, the drabber and browner the feathers of the female are. This is not true in humans. With them, the costlier and more glamorous the garb of the female, the plainer and tackier the clothes of the male. This is because by the time the human male buys fancy clothes for the female, he can't afford a decent set of feathers for himself. * * * THE PEACOCK IS A VAIN TYPE, and there are both male and female. The female spends three fourths of her time at the hairdressers or in front of the mirror; the rest of the time she spends showing off her new clothes. The male Peacock is not so proud of his clothes as he is of his classic profile, his bulging muscles, or his knack with the ladies. * * * LAST WE COME TO THE KINGFISHER. His natural habitat is the water places—the rivers, streams and lakes, and he, is very unlviroy if he can't be there. Fish are both his food and his entertainment. Kingfishers are completely frustrated during the winter months when the waters are frozen over, so they hibernate until they can go fishing again. However, some of this breed have their nest sufficiently feathered so that they can fly south for the winter where they go fishing in warmer waters. THIS WEEK'S RECIPE is for Frosty I%uil Mold. It can be served as either a salad or'a dessert. 1 pkg.

Stir in milk and chill until slightly thickened. Fold in the fruit and put into an 8 inch square pan, or a 5 cup mold. Chill until firm. Makes 6 servings. —GRACE I Persons At Ledyard Hi Graduation Ledyard — Commencement exercises were held on Wednesday evening, May 18, at Ledyard school auditorium with around 900 in attendance.
