AMERICAN CARDINALS SAIL FOR ROME NEW YORK, Feb 10--CUP)-Because of illness, WilLam Cardinal O'Connell of Boston Friday cancelled a plan to fly from his Nassau retreat to Miami so that he might reach Rome in time for the papal election The other two American cardinals prepared for a speedy voyage Saturday's sailing of the Italian liner Rex will oe delayed two houis so that George Cardinal Murdelem of Chicago might board it in time to reach Naples Feb 18 Dennis Cardinal Dougherty of Philadelphia will sail on the Rex with Cardinal Munde- lem, who cut shoit a Florida vacation and caught a train to New York which would bring him here a half hour before the Rex's postponed sailing tune will be closed Monday in observance of Lincoln's birthday, but m order that no unemployment compensation checks be delayed in reaching needy jobless, this particular branch of the public service will remain open No other work will be transacted by the Unemployment Serv ice, it was explained, but compensation checks will be handled as usual * * » A DAY OR SO ago we had a paragraph about the early robins and the hint of spring We also said something about feeding those cold birds during the recent snow. Almost immediately W. F Cioss, night watchman at Hobart Lumber Mill, verified the robin storj, said he had seen fourteen of the redbreast variety, and Clarence Dietrich, 122 Rock Street, said he'd seen some, too, and that he is feeding them. F.ank Campbell, county tax assessor, reported he is feeding 20 quail and a general assortment of other birds during the cold spell And Bob Quivey of Carlisle's [said confidentially he's feeding a ' couple of pheasants. We suspect, though, that Bob is just sort of prolonging their lives for a selfish purpose With another severe storm predicted, most of us will have to start feeding, or see the birds die all over the place And judging from weather reports, those robins sure made a blunder, stopping in Reno this early in the year.
