BIRD CLUB NOTES
At the meeting of the Bird Club,
Saturday morning, Walter Burgees
read from Senator Jonah Bailey's
article, "The Song of the Cardinal,"
which appeared to the March "Pro
gressive Farmer," as A tribute to the
late Senator, who wrote it a number
of years age describing spring and
her approach. /i'Afl
"And Spring shall blow her clarion

The cardinal's high and Joyous call
breaks the silence of winter. The
white-throat trills a wistful winter

love songs before the break of dawn
and far into the dusk. The mocking
bird is singing. The bluebird is neat

evensong of praise, as simple and
true as the prayer of a little child.

the court, ""was a void act, which
did not confer upon him any right

These reductions, which wSI save the users
of our products approximately $20,000;000 a
year, will become effective befcte April 1, and w
will apply to a selected list of tractor, farm
machine, motor truck, and industrial power
products. Since we lose money on a few of our
products, and barely break even on soma
others, these reductions win not apply to our
entire line. Reductions will be made indi- -
vidually on products. Some will be cut more
than others. Exact details wffl be announced
as soon as pn?ihi?.
Our ability to maintain this lower level of ;
prices will depend in part on what happens to
the prices arid flew of materials that we feuy
from others. Because we believe price reduc
tion is vital, we are willing to assume the risks
that are involved.
