The following theme written by Ruth Jiobtoson, freshman, took first prize to the zoology nature campaign contest. Did you ever ask yourself what the ivorld would be like if there were no "birds? Most of us consider birds as a matter of fact, as an "expected something" that should be there and generally is there. We do not take the trouble to study their homes and nests, -.and find out of what economic value they are to us. We say, for an excuse, that the world is too busy to bother with such a common thing as birds, but wise people are never too busy to enjoy the beauties of Nature. Look closely at any bird's nest. Is it not a fine specimen of workmanship? Each wisp of straw 3s woven in so carefully. Man, with his hands, could never build such a tiny network of straw and string as the bird family •can. The farmer, perhaps, should appreciate the birds more than anyone else. It is his crop which the birds keep from destruction by eating the weed seeds. It is he whom the owls help when they destroy mice and rats. And it is also he who may hear, almost any bright, •sunny morning, the birds singing so •cheerfully to the top of his pine trees. So important is the work of birds to the aid of man that it is doubtful whether we could continue to exist with out them. It is true that some birds .seem to thrive at the expense of man's crops, but to the majority of cases this is not true at all. Of course, almost •any bird will feed on our crops when its natural food is not at hand, but very few birds live on man's crops alone. They eat the seeds of weeds and insects that would otherwise destroy our crops and in the destruction of rats and mice, far surpass all other animals. damages wheat in all stages of growth from the sprout to the standing grain. It destroys fruits, buds, and flowers. It eats the young sprouts of the vegetable garden, it makes war on martins, wrens, bluebirds and swallows. It destroys their eggs and their young and If 1 !! 8 , the , old bws from the nest. In short, it is such a terrbile pest that the biological survey approves of the verdict of extermination for this sparrow. We that do not notice the birds, probably think We should not notice it if they were all gone. But we are making a mistake there, because even though we do not really see them or hear their songs, we should miss them ir they were not here, and it will always repay you to "Be a friend to the birds." "A" Club Boys Take a Trip. Mr. Bonham took the "A" club boys to Sioux Falls last Friday to attend the track meet. Those who took the trip were: Mr. Bonham, Joe Jordon, Lewis Moore, John Hargreaves, Clair Blossom, John Mangan, Everyal Adams, Nobody ever seems to doubt that the robin, the wren, the oriole, the larks, the bob white and the cardinal are allies of man to the war on insects o^ d *u eed ^* , Bufc the cr °w, the owl, and the hawk suffer undeserved punishment because too many people look upon them as outlaws of the bird community.. The crow is accused of robbing grain fields, killing useful birds and of sucking their eggs. But the mack bird that we see calmly flapping its way over our houses and voicing Its T "SS: W ' caw> " te ver y Justly accused. The stomachs of thousands of these birds have been examined and - — -o— _-p u»wi^i** jr__ieuiio. Kenneth Samp, Dick Cowan and Chas. Lindhorst. Senior Class Play Was Big Success. The senior class play, "Are You a Mason", under the direction of Mrs. Dennis Goeders, was a big success, and the students and director are to be congratulated. The music furnished by Miss Duhigg, Miss Fulton and Jeannette Goeders, was worthy of mention, and the domestic science girls deserve credit for their help to making the costumes.
