Bird Club Saturday'niozning and was

counted 82 immature and 66 mature
pelicans. The immature birds rang

fourths grown. The large young
were covered with a white dqwn.
They set up a terrific din, squawking
and snapping their long bills. He said
it was a marvelous sight to see the
mature birds wheeling over their
heads as they examined the nests and
young. ? -
The boys assisted in making
marshmallow squares which were
greatly enjoyed. A
