WREN COMES HOME:
Dr. Sutton Fin
Solves_111-Yea
By BOB BYERLY
Science has done pretty well
with atoms, but it took a disgrace-
fully-long time to catch up with
the nesting habits of Gould's
White-Bellied Wren of Mexico.
Dr. George Miksch Sutton of the
Museums, nationally-known bird
artist and ornithologist, gets
credit for solving a 111-year-old
puzzle, and it took him nine years
to do it. The discovery is one more
feather in the capful listed under
his name in Who's Who.
Dr. Sutton and many other or-
nithologists tore their hair for
years over the fact that Gould's
wren could never be caught on-
or, it so happens, in-his nest.
They found him chirping in a
nesting manner and acting very
obviously-to ornithologists--like
he had a family in the area, but
he could never be pinned down to
a residence.
Most in Mexico
Last spring Dr. Sutton and par-
ty flew to Mexico with the express
idea of solving the mystery. They
found a nest that looked new and
like it might be what they were
looking for-twenty feet up and
very convenient to a hornet's
nest.- But they met with a sting-
ing defeat on this one: no wrens
went in.
It looked like the trip would be
a failure until the day before they
were to leave, when from a nest
they had been watching out flew
the small bird with the white
belly. They shot the bird, took
down the nest and had another
surprise: white-bellies have blue
eggs.
Nest in Jeep
Dr. Sutton took the nest, a re-
tort-shaped one made of fine
grass and the four small blue eggs
for a 126-mile ride in a jeep on the
first lap of his trip home.

ds Rare Nest,
Ir-Old Puzzle
Dr. Sutton was impressed with
the bird's habit of building their
nests close to the protection of a
hornet's -nest or an ant hill.
"I don't know what kind of an
understanding they have," he said,
"but they seem to have worked
out some sort of agreement."
Dr. Sutton brought back some
200 species of birds from Mexico,
including buntings, cuckoos, par-
rots, mackaws and wood-hewers.
A book on the birds of Mexico
written by Dr. Sutton, the first of
its kind to appear, will be pub-
lished in a few months. Dr. Sut-
ton has published several books
on his expeditions to Labrador,
British Columbia, Hudson Bay,
the Rio Grande valley and other
places and is well known as an il-
lustrator of books on birds.
UWF Reaches
8,000 in Poll
More than 8,000 copies of the'
United World Federalist foreign
aid resolution have been circulated
on campus, George Shepherd,
president of the Federalist campus
chapter, announced yesterday.
"We expect to canvass Willow
Village today and announce the
final result of the survey drive late
in the week," she said.
The resolution calls for U.S. aid
to Europe with no political restric-
tions attached.
Student Federalists plan to cir-
culiate a petition early in January
to sound out opinion on a pro-
posed change in the UN charter.
The change would increase UN
powers, enabling it to enforce
peace, Shepherd said.

Greater traffic safety is in storeE
for Willow Village as a result of
the traffic plan which the Willow
Village Resident Council drew up
at their last meeting.
The plan provides for the erec-
tion of speed limit signs at danger
points within the Village.
Speaking on the Village man-
agements' policy regarding trans-
fers within the village, Ken C.a
Cavanaugh, manager of the proj-.
ect, said that a system has beenr
set up whereby units are to be as-s
signed according to the size of the5
family.
Transfer System
If a family is expecting an ad-
dition, it can get an immediate
transfer to the next larger unit.
A certificate of seven months'
pregnancy signed by a doctor mustc
be submitted with an applicationr
for transfer. Priorities on trans-g
fers will go to expectant couples.
The management policy on floorv
repairs will require tenants to con-a
tact maintenance for estimates be-
fore repairs are made.
Lighting Requestsae.
Residents should not attempt tos
put in their own light bulbs, Cav-
anaugh said, but should addressX
requests for lights to him.
A new system of paint distribu-
tion has also been put into effect
Cavanaugh announced. Tenants
will receive paint and instructionsr
on painting from maintenance.
