He Is Pictured here with two houses jusl completed, awaiting delivery into the hands of two new young bird house owners. "W. A." gets a big kick out of building the houses—and a bigger kick out of giving them away, for ihe most part, he gives his bird houses 10 young polio patients, the names of whom he discovers as he reads newspapers from far and wide. When he comes across a youngster suffering from polio, off goes a bird house, no matter whether the young paiieni is in Iowa City, Chicago, or Allan- la, Ga. Thai the bird house gifts meet wilh a warm reception from Ihe young recipients is proved by the fact that Mr. While has a pile of letters that ring with thanks -—all from youngsters, most of them polio patients. W. A.'s bird houses are not Just ordinary bird houses, either. He specialties in houses for wrens only, saying that wrens need houses more than larger and hardier: birds, and more protection. He has studied the habits of the wren species, and has adapted his designs to their habits. W. A. claims that a W.A. WHITE * * * jrreh on flying up to his or her bird house home, never immediately enters, but alights on something nearby to size up ihe situation. If all is not wall, Mr. or Mrs. Wren does not enter. Mr. While's unusual hobby is financed by himself — and by the boxes and crates he sets aside in the grocery «fore. He says a peach crate just about provides all the lumber needed for one wren house. this center.
