single factors in community development. Much of the popula

it brings in additional residents. Through it more outside money
is yearly brought into Salem than by any of our manufacturing
enterprises. Hence Willamette University is one of Salem's
greatest assets, intellectually, socially, morally and commercially.

difficulties. From wealthy eastern institutions like Harvard
down through the list of heavily endowed state universities, to
the small struggling sectarian colleges, and on to the public and
district schools, all are appealing for help. Thousands of schools
have been closed for lack of teachers, thousands more will be

"I'd like to know what sort of bird
that Is!" he exclaimed at last?. "If
he'd only .come out here in the yard
I'd ask him his name rand tell him
what I think of him, too."
But the stranger never stirred out

Cr. Crow hesitated.

Seeing Jimmy Rabbit passing thru
the orchard on his way home from
the cabbage patch, Rusty called to
"If you happen to see old Mr.
Crow, I wish you would ask hhn if
he won't please come right over to
the orchard," Rusty Wren said.
"There's something I want- to find
out. And Mr. Crow knows so much
that perhaps he can help me."
Jimmy Rabbit declared that he
Would be delighted to deliver the
message. And he must have gone out
of his way to find Mr. Crow, for the
gentleman arrived at the orchard In
less than sixteen minutes.
Rusty was waiting for him. A.nd,
having explained about the strange
bird as well as he could, he asked

"What's the joke?" Rusty Wren
wanted to know.
"That's not a bird " said old Mr.
Crow "or, at least, it's not a real
bird. He's made of wood. And he
lives inside a cuckoo clock."
"Ah!" Rusty cried. "An alarm
But old Mr. Crwo shook his head.
"No!" he replied. "It's just an
everyday clock. And, instead of strik

and children," Mr. Crow remarked
men you think Farmer Green
was not dissatisfied with my singing?
You think he would like me to wake
him every morning, just as I used
to?" Rusty waited eagerly for Mr
Old Mr. Crow pondered for a while
before answering. He reflected that
since it was long past corn-planting
time, It really made no difference to
him whether Farmer Green overslept
or not. If the corn had just been put
in the ground, he would have liked
to have Farmer Green stayed in bed
all day long.
'I understand that the whole fam
ily enjoys your songs," Mr. Crow told
Rusty at last "And for the present
you may as well sing your dawn song
right here in your own tree, Deneatn
Farmer Green's window. But if you're
living here next spring, I wish you
would consult me again."
Rusty Wren agreed to that, thank
ing Mr. Crow for his kindness, too.
And, afterward, instead of being an
gry, he laughed whenever he heard
that silly "Cuckoo! cuckoo!" Since
he knew it was only a wooden bird.
Rusty Wren was jealous no longer.
The next morning he awakened
Farmer Green at the break o" day.
And the hired man was so sleepy
that he fell downstairs and couldn't
work for a whole week.
