Sob Sister to Song
By BETTY JANE THOMPSON
Long ago—(about a month ago, in reality) the pussywillows, hailed
| as the first heralds of spring for many, many years, took things in
their own hands and determinedly, cautiously pushed their furry grey
1 heads up to peek at the world. What they saw was none too encourag
ing. It was bitter cold and pouring unceasingly most of the time. But
they threw caution to the winds and challenged the weather, boldly
I stepped out into the biting, drenching weather.
Passersby looked mcreduousiy,
then turned away with a sneering
smile. They wondered whether the
pussy willows had been fooled or
whether they were trying to tanta
lize the world.
Although winter weather had
the upper hand, a few sunny days
managed to squeeze in between
the rainy ones.
I On these few days, robins by
the dozens cavorted around, mak
ing the most of the sun. Not only
did the robins appear, but also the
I Brewer blackbirds — those sleek,
II black birds that seem to change
S colors every time they assume a
different angle in the sunlight.
Their sharp, metallic chirp was in
deed a welcome sound to those ach
ing for the return of springtime.
The crowning event of those few
spring-like days was the sight of
first one brilliantly plumed bird
Hopes soared high only to col
lapse suddenly with the return of
King Winter to his throne. Blue
birds and Brewer blackbirds went
into hiding, and robins chirped dis
mally once again.
Then came the day when people
awoke, sleepily opened their eyes,
and prepared to groan over the
horrid day ahead of them.
In the midst of their groans their
eyes popped open — unbelieving.
The sun was streaming gloriously
through the east windows, birds
were singing and chirping joyous
Many people strained their cars, i
listened intently. There were the
unmistakable sounds of a chirp
similar to that of baby chicks’
separated from their mother. If
that were true, then spring was
here for keeps.
For there on the lawn busily eat
ing maple seeds, happily chatter
ing among themselves was a group
of western evening grosbeaks —
those strikingly marked yellow,
black, and white birds which for
the past several years have re
turned at the beginning of spring.
These brilliant yellow birds with
their black caps, their black and
white wings, and quizzically arched
yellow “eyebrows” are true heralds
of spring to this neighborhood.
They often wake residents of the
town with their chicklike “peep
ing” and their busy pecking on the
roof and eave troughs where the
maple seeds have accumulated dur
ing the winter.
Mile of Steam Lines
Brings Campus Heat
During the winter, the University heating plant uses as much as
60 units of hog fuel a day, according to D. L. Davis, superintendent of
the physical plant. The fuel, which is made of sawmill waste put
through a grinder is measured in 200-cubic foot units.
When the hog fuel is unavailable because of bad weather or saw
mills being closed down, the plant burns about 5.000 gallons of fuel
oil, or a tank car every other day, to heat the campus buildings and

“The new buildings on the cam

he stated. The plant has a new
530-horse-power boiler which was
installed this summer to meet the
new demands for heat. In addition
to the new boiler the plant already
has two 250-horse and one 150

all the load on tbe campus.

Goering Warns Europe:
Germany Will Protect All
Nazis by Use of Aircraft
By GORDON RIDGEWAY
An estimated 20,000 nazis marched in a torch parade in Austria
last night while Chancellor Schuschnigg continued to strive for pre
serving national independence. And at the same time, Germany's Her
mann Wilhelm Goering told the air corps, in the best of saber rattling
styles, that the Reich's air force was ready to protect tiro “ten millions
of Germans outside our borders.''
Recently appointed field marshal in the army by Adolph Hitler,
Goering said, in brief: |--—— -
1. That Premier Milan Hodza
must treat the Germans in Czecho
slovakia as Hitler orders.
2. That Austria must give nazis
liberty of action.
3. That Chautemps should not
encourage Czechoslovakia too
4. That Chamberlain will have to
recognize that only a ‘‘German
peace” will be acceptable to the
