BOW TO US., TROOPS:
Five Named To
Goonev Birds on Midway Add Probe Eire S 4t
To 'eneral Interest of Island
By 'lio Associated Press
MIDWAY ISLAND - This is the
place where birds dig holes in the
ground, bow gravely at visitors, lay
eggs in tree, and act generally like
the man who thought he was Na-
If you go in for bird life -- and it's
required on a Midway visit -- the
Gooney birds take top spot. Techni-
cally the Gooney is an Albatross.
They are black and white, about the
size of a goose and apparently share
the same I.Q.
Young Goonies s end their youth
just sitting around all over the
place waiting for a sort of thick
peach fuzz to drop from their
wings. The drop-off process, inci-
dentally, makes them look like bat-
tered seats in an old day coach.
When fall comes and the young
Goonies try for their take-offs a
very violent period ensues.
F.W. (Cable Station) Smith of
Palo Alto, Calif., came to Midway in
1931 and perhaps is the best Gooney
authority on the island.
First flight for a gooney comes a,.
a hazard to them," he related. "They
get off the ground after a long run-
ning start, fly up to about 20 feet
and get dizzy. When a young gooney
finds himself that far off the ground
the surprise apparently gets the bet-
ter of him and he gets panicky, so he
folds his wings and goes into a spin."
Casualties of a serious nature rarely
Quite often a na ure gooney
cemes in for a landing, hits tail
first and then skitters along end
cver end. TheV always act insulted
when this occurs, arise gravely and
bow to no one in particular.
The gooney dance, a set pattern of
nonsense which takes place whenever
a couple of gooneys feel in the mood
to cut a ancldunc, has fine enter-
I ainment valu6 for the men sta-
tioned here. It is rumored that two
sailors who have been on Midway for
a long time have the routine per-
fected and when bolstered by suffi-
cient quantities of malt brew, do the
dance for their pals.
"Them guys better watch out," a
sailor remarked darkly. "First; thing
they know they'll be growing feath-
Gooney dancing is done in
groups of two and three and fea-
tures a great clacking of beaks,
stretching of necks and plaintive
cries heavenward. Bowing, how-
ever, is required gooney etiquette
and is done any old time.
