BIRDS MORE NUMEROUS OVER NORTHERN SEAS ]),y Science Service Statistical observations oi1 birds over the north Atlantic ocean indicate that their number increases steadily toward tire north, reaching a maximunl in the seas between Norway and Iceland. The mininnun is found in mid-oceau at about the latitude of North Carolina and the Straits of Gibraltar, says a dispatch front \,Vashiugton. The data for this census of sea birds was obtained by Danish scientists dur- ing the past four years, with one earli- er set of observations sonic ten years ago. In making their counts they dealt only with birds that spend most of their time at sea, like terns and alba- trosses, amt excluded shore birds and land birds in passage. One very prominent factor in de- ll termining the distribution of bird life seems to be the Gulf Stream, \Vhere this current crosses the Atlantic, be- Scenic Trip Worth While tween Newfoundland and Britain, there is a considerable abundance of birds.

FROM BAND PROGRAM The writer, like many whohave not investigated, was a little skep- tical about a vegetable diet. We had the pleasure of eating a lunch at Conductor Mulford's house, and where nothing but vegetables were served--sonic cooked, sonic raw. We don't remember a more delici- ous meal. It is surprising to the uninitated the number of courses that can be seryed, by those who have made a study of the so-called vegetable diet. This delightful lunch is one of the "high spots" of our experience. Allen Ruffelle, a member of the band, has been helping the office force at the local Telephone and Telegraph Company's office, ,for some days. The different conven- tions being held here have increas- ed tire business very nmch. Mrs. Ruffelle is the "big noise" for the colnpany here at Avalon. Brother Ruffelle makes out his bills, his wife o. k's them, and there your are. That is what the plumbers call a "lead pipe cinch." Dorothy Beardsley, yoking dau- ghter of Mr. and Mrs. Beardsley bf the band, run a long sliver-into her right foot recently, on the board walk, when returning from bathing. It went so deep that she had to be taken to a physician. Like all plucky children, she is recovering at a fast pace; but says that slivers are pleasanter to read about, in some other girl's foot.
