APRIL 9 WILL BE BIRD BUY
Clubs Are Being Organized All Over
the State for Observance
of the Event
The setting apart of April 9 to be
recognized as "Bird Day" this vear
is meeting with wai;m commendation
among lovers of birds the State over,
and the indications are that the date
will be very generally observed.
Bird clubs are be.ng organized all over
the State, .the object being to study
and protect all song and insectiverous
birds. In a circular just issued Dr. H.
A. Surface, State Economic Zoologist,
who is an authority on birds, says:
"This bird club is not confined to
any one section of the country in its
uembersliip, and in its organization
has received the support of prominent
persons all over the country. As it
has for its design only the purpose of
studying and protecting the birds, it
is worthy of support.
'•The program for Bird Day can
well include songs, recitations con
cerning birds, essays cn the value of
birds and the methods of inducing
them to live around the premises; the
methods of observing birds; where,
when and how the different species
nest; their food ami economic value,
and any other topics that will sug
gest themselves to thinking persons.
'' There can be no doubt of the fact
that the birds were placed under the
dominion of mankind, the same as are
all other creatures, but we have failed
to provide for their preservation. In
the so-called march of civilization their
nesting conditions have been de
stroyed, the native shrubs and trees
furnishing them food have been cleared
away to make room for cultivated
plants, the house cat has been intro
duced into this country and allowed
to roam at will. While "other creatures
coming under the direct influence of
man have been domesticated and in
crease in numbers, the birds have been
decreasing considerably. Many species
are doomed to mose or less speeiiy ex
tinction if efforts be not taken to pre
serve them, anil without their aid in
sect pests would increasJß far worse than
at present. Then the subject of, insect
warfare will become one the most
serious for mankind to face. Let all
thoughtful persons do what is possible
to stimulate intetest in Bird Day and
in the study and preservation of the
