Much of your future benefits depends now on how well you Underwater birds Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dent Encyclopedia to Todd K. Pcderson, age 9, of Duluth, Minnesota, for his question: Can one bird really swim un- derwater? Several different birds can s w i m underwater. Naturally they do not swim like fishes and they must come up for every breath of fresh air. They have no fins, but they use Kings to do a sort of breast stroke under water. The black and white penguin swims in the seas with wings that work like flippers. The champion fresh water underwater swim- mer of the bird world is the neat little water ouzel. Most people call him the ouzel, though some call him the dipper. He is related to our robins and one of his English cousins is a blackbird, famous for his beautiful songs. The water ouzel is not much of a singer but he is a great one for the water. He enjoys life among the stately redwoods of California, or high in the moun- as a family pet. He capture tains. He also likes Alaska, his audience by performin even when the weather is 50 amusing tricks and soon learn degrees below zero. to imitate human words in hi Other birds who enjoy I h e j raspy voice. His bright eye i: have to move over. The honors belong to the European jack- daw who is, without a doubt, the Sassiest Bird hi the World. He also may fly off with the world's smartest bird title- arid with any prcfly object that catches his bright, beady eye. Tile European jackdaw is a member of the crow family Corvidae. You might mistak him for a smallish crow, a tired in slu'ny black. We kno' that our crows are very smar birds, full of tricks and very fond of mischief. The jackda- is an even more remarkabl character and, of all things he devotes much of his bri liant brain to the practice o thievery. From the huma point of view, he often rate as the most wanted crook o the bird wirld. For reasons known only t himself, he is very fond of peo pie and often goes to a lot o trouble to get himself adoptee ings. Courtesy in any travel is essential a new light, but not >et lime to alter your terms. Discussing waler usually prefer calm shores, swamps and lazy streams. But this water is too tame for the ouzel. He loies the wild white water of tumbling mountain streams and rushing rapids. The rougher the inleresled in every human hap pening and the sassy charac ter never misses a chanie t talk back.

When you watch him, you think he surely will break his little neck. Either that, or perhaps he means to commit suicide. Chances are, you hear a piercing call before you see an ouzel. No, he has not come to grief. There sits a dark brown bird near a slippery wet rock beside a tumbling stream. This is a young ouzel, with his pink mouth stretched open to the limit demanding lo be fed. Then the mother or the father arrives, pops a juicy bug into (he open mouth and the in action. He takes a few jerky steps, bobbing his head, then suddenly he plunges into the stream and disappears under and doors. The clever bin seems able to make long range plans of this sort us ually for purposes of crime. It so happens that he has a secrel passion for possessions of his very own preferably small bright objects such as stolen jewels. And he is a born hoard- er. When a jackdaw gets the freedom of the house, his crim- inal tendencies lead to all sorts of dislurbing family situations. He hops around the kitchen, chatting cheerfully to distract the cook's attention while he watches where the bright grown up hird bhiny spoons are kept. He perches affectionately on a girl's shoulder actually watshing to sec where she leaves her jewelry1. He notires GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES II. GOREN DTTIM CMuuTrlhiDi] WEEKLY BRIDGE QUIZ Q.
