U.S. Women Going to the Birds? ttmtt HtriW, C«rr«ll, U. « m i Wtdneiday, Oct. 14, 1959 | | By WARD CANNEL NBA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) - A careful examination of the facts leads to only one conclusion, namely: the future of American Womanhood lies in the hands of the U.S. bird food industry. Figure it out for yourself. 1. Women love birds. A recent market survey shows that American women own and operate well 800 PROOF DEMONSTRATION will convince you Ihot there's a POWERFUL DIFFERENCE Ask us about our SPECIAL Trade Allowance.

Unfortunately, this is not much of a market as birds are notorious for their poor eating habits. 2. In fact, there is a widely used expression about how certain women eat like birds. Another survey shows there are nearly 90 million women in this country. 3. Meanwhile, one company was endowing a comfy chair of ornithology at Cornell University charged with "bird behavior studies ... to ... shed light on human behavior." 4. And last, the industry ran one more survey to find that most women keep their parakeets only to look at or — in a few cases — to do simple household chores like putting out fires, riding ferris wheels or climbing ladders. Then, with reports pouring in from all districts, a spokesman for \R. T. French) one of the" biggest cuttle bone and gravel houses cried: "Women are not getting enough out of their birds. Besides, birds v/ho can't do anything constructive don't have much to do. It's bad for the birds. It's bad for the women." And the campaign was on. 5. First step was the appearance of Philip Marsden, a wistful, bewildered, pleasant Englishman who was lured away from his job in the vote of office at the House of Commons for two weeks with the promise that he would be made an honorary Indian in Omaha. Marsden, it developed, had discovered the secret of teaching parakeets (called budgerigars or "budgies" in England) to talk. This is an indispensable part of the bird food plan. "It is really quite simple," he told me. "You must pick a young budgie and not let him have a mate as it will only distract him. Then you pick a phrase for him to learn and repeat it in the same tone of voice for about a month. "It is rather hard on the nerves, but excellent for the bird who car increase his learning speed and MOVING Local and Nation Wide Storagt — Crating — Ph. Day 2540 Ph.

MARSDEN & FRIEND: Hard on the nerves. eventually develop a vocabulary of 700 words — far more than many Englishmen and probably American men. "In time the bird will rely on human language exclusively and sit and talk to you at mealtimes and so forth. What could be nicer? And he'll want, to learn as single budgies develop great fondness for their mistresses and want to please them." 6. II Marsden's crusade is successful, half the battle is won: lirds will replace men in five million American homes. 7. The other half depends on Dr. 'William A. Dllger of the Ornithology Department at Cornell Univer- iity. "Our studies," he told me, "show that birds are like humans, being an integrated complex of answers to questions asked by the environment. "If you take away a bird's mate, he will transfer his behayior readily to anyone who will care for him — trying to do what is asked in return for a satisfactory environment. Birds live in the immediate here and now. Promises mean nothing to them." 8. In other words, if science is right, women have already begun to replace birds. Dispute Over Ownership of * Gun is Settled FAIRFIELD (AP)-The ground hogs had Better look out, because District Court has settled a dispute between two elderly former friends over ownership of a 52- year-old, home-made, muzzle-loader "ground hog gun". After considerable testimony and argument, Judge Harold V. Levis has given custody of the blunderbuss to William Kiews, 80, who lives on a farm near Packwood. Marvin Van Ness, 79, who lives near Ollie in Keokuk County also claimed ownership of the 20-pound. 2!&-inch barrel antique. It was stipulated in court that the gun, studded with brass decorations, is valued at ,$200. The gun was made by Kiews 1 brother John in 1907. Fables have grown up around the weapon. One relates that the gun has been fired 11 times and has killed 11 ground hogs. The ownership story begins in 1920. Kiews gave, lent or traded the cumbersome weapon (depending on whose version it is) to Jess- Van Ness, his hunting companion and a brother of Marvin. Jess died in 1929 and Marvin got the gun. Last year Marvin gave the gun to Charles F. Olofson of Oskaloosa, a state conservation officer, to fix up. Kiews heard about it, went to Oskalopsa and got the antique weapon. Marvin went to court to get the gun back. He President Observes His 69th Birthday By ARTHUR EDSON ABILENE, Kan. (AP) — President Eisenhower celebrates his 60th birthday today. If all goes well, it should be much quieter than the past two days. Today's schedufe: A flight that should get him hack to Washington around noori, and a family dinner tonight. Eisenhower did most of his celebrating early. First there was a White House Correspondents' Assn. dinner Monday night, and Tuesday here in his old home town, there was an old-fashioned party. The President was here to help break ground for a library that will have his official papers. Con- posted a $1,000 bond and Kiews turned the gun over to the sheriff pending the outcome of the trial. Kiews and Van Ness agreed that it wasn't the value of the gim that counted; it was "the principle of the thing". Ki/sws testified that he simply lent the gun to Jess. Marvin testified that Kiews gave or traded the gun to his brother. Van Ness' sister Lou, 81, testified against her brother. She said Jess told her in the 1920s that the gun was borrowed. Kiews testified that he asked Van Ness for the gun at least three times after Jess died. siclerable sentiment was mixed with business. He was given a big cake at a luncheon. "We are all met," the President said, "in a town that has, for me, a very deep, sentimental meaning." At a late afternoon reception, the cake was cut. Eisenhower passed out bits of his portion to fluttery ladies in the audience. Some of .the ladies were so overcome they couldn't eat the cake. The cake-cutting began with a bit of comedy. "Where's Charley?" Eisenhower asked. In Abilene, this question needs no explaining. It means, where is Charley Case? Case, a frisky 81, had shaken the President's hand and then gone across the street to his home. Secret Service men hustled over and told Case he was wanted, so he hurried back again. "I've known him ever since he was 12 years old," Case said. "He's a great guy." As Eisenhower said at the luncheon, it was a time to be renewing old associations. Here, too, was a moment that by request went unobserved by the ever-present newsmen. Eisenhower and his brother, Milton, Flipped away during the afternoon for a quiet visit to the cemetery where their parents are buried. Bills Pile Up, Steel Strikers Families Suffer MORRISVILLE, Pa. (AP) "It's getting difficult. As a matter of fact we are at rock bottom, although there are other families far worse off than we are." This, explains Helen Gslambos, 33, Is how the steel strike has nffected her family. Her husband is one of the 6,100 employes on strike at U.S. Steel Corp. Fairless Works. They have a 6Ms-month-old daughter. Mrs. Galambofi says they are a month behind on their mortgage payments and have not been able to pay other bills. "We're cutting on food where we can," she adds. "We are not eating the way we used to. Many of our meals are stews. We are buying less meat and when we do get it, it's the cheaper grades." Many other families like the Galambos are in financial trouble. Mortgages are going unpaid. Bills are piling up. Christmas is approaching and there's no money for childrens' toys. But the wives are not pressuring their husbands to rush Ujjo a settlement. Most take the position that their husbands, since they've been out this long, might just as well stay out a little longer until tney get what they want. All advertisers invested $3,192,800,000 in the U.S. daily newspapers in 1958 — more than they did in radio, television, magazines and outdoor combined. Washington Man Named 'Star Farmer' KANSAS CITY.
