They will live at Ames where both are enrolled at Iowa State University. Too Many! Lone Rock Not For The Birds LONE ROCK - Lone Rock has been invaded by birds. Literally thousands of blackbirds and starlings every evening have been roosting in the treetops in the town. Why the birds have all of a sudden decided that Lone Rock is a good place to live, no one is quite sure, perhaps the low cost of living, or the peaceful surroundings - that is peaceful until the men of the town decided to discourage these chat- terig, wing-flapping birds and have been shooting at the treetops, and also using the fire hose on the fire truck to unsettle them so that they might pick a country estate, where they could have their convention without disturbing anyone. It does make an extra chore to try to run to your car or cross the street if you have to go under a tree where there are perhaps hundreds of birds living. After Saturday night's attempted eviction, one man in Lone Rock picked up an estimated 60 birds who fell. They don't discourage easily we've found, but then neither do we. - o - Mrs. Dennis Priebe and Mrs. Ken Schmidt spent Wednesday in Cedar Falls visiting at the home of Mrs. Schmidt's brother and family, Mr. and Mrs. Don Priebe.
