Migratory birds are au thelf- way

have been noticed passiJg over York
Ville, and occasionally, a plhalaux

The marking of migratory water
fowl, which has been practiced by the I
collaborators of the liological Survey, t
United Statcs Department of/Agricul
ture, has given evidence that it will be
a most Interesting and important in- I
vestigation. Although the iwork has I
been in progress for only two years it
has had notable results, it is announc
ed. Ducks and other birds, the move- I
ment of which are 'being studied by
this method, are caught, mainly by the
use of special tralps, light aluminum
bands are. placed on one leg and the
captives are released, says a depart
iental report. Each band bears a se
rial number and the legend "3iol. 1
Survey, Wash., 1). C."
In the .Washington oflice of the' Bio
logical'Survey these canded birds are I
card indexed, so that when a hunter
bags a duck 'bearing a band and re
Ports its capture, by referring to the t
card 'file the route covered by the bird
in question can be ascertained. Wlhen 1
such records are received the hunter I
is advised where the birdNwas ban(led, J
while ,te person who -attached the (
hand is informed where the bird fell. t
Duringifall shooting seasons for the
last few years a large number of mal- t
lards and black ducks, with a few f
American, because the species also
w ters in small numbers in the Gulf
region, and it is to that area that the
more northern 't irds might be expect
ed to go. g. - '4
"The return record of ducks of oth
er species, banded near Toronto, have I
afforded valuable data relative to their
migration," the report continues. "The <
lake where the banding was done, (
Lake Scugog, is surrounded by marsh- (
es and thus offers excellent opportuni- (
ties for the ducks to feed and rest 4
before starting the long flight to the (
South. The trappings and banding
were carried on continuously through
the' gutumn, so that by the time the
big'southward movement began sev
eral hundred birds had !been marked.
At this time the season was open from
the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Alexico,
and the migrating birds had to run a
veritable gauntlet of sportsmen. A
large number of return records were
therefore received.
'4in tracing the route of these birds I
it seemed apparent that the mallards I
and 'black ducks travelqd together and I
their course from 'Lake Scugog was
southwesmward along the shores of
Lake EFrie by way of the St. Clair flats.
Here the route divided, the majority
continuing toward the Southwest, I
cross-country to the Ohio river, thence
td thze iississippi valley, where many I
of them $pent the winter.
"The second group that -parted from i
their fellows in. the vicinity of Lake '
Erie took a southeasterly route, cross
ing the Allephenies and reaching t~e I
Atlantic coast by way of Chesapeake I
and Delaware- Boys. It is interesting i
that, although 'both of tliese kinds of
ducks arc present and the black duck

TJakes Drastic Steps to Prevent Delays
in Executions.
Columbia, Nov. 3.-4ranting a netw
trial to Cliff illawklns, of Greenville,
whlo has twice had sentence af. deat/h
passed upon him for the murder of
W~illiam Morgan in 1920, the upr'emie
Court of Soyth Carolina today handed
down a decision making drastic
changes in the procedure to be follow
ed in capital cases in the future, with
a viewv to preventing unneces'aary de
lays in execution.
The order provides that, after the
Supreme Court hals once affirmed a
death sentence of the lower courts,
the dlefendant cannot obtain the bene
fit of a motion for a new trial on the
gr'oum~d of after-discovered evidecnce,
the only course then open, exc(1pt with
the consent of the State Supreme
Court. If there 'be n'o sitting of-that
court between the days if sentencing
*and the date sot for the electrocition,
the '1efendant must secure from ,the
Governor a temporary reprieve to giv~e
*him 9pportunity to present 'his case to
the court. The granting of the re
prieve is optional -with the Chief Eoi
ecutive. Heretofore, /circuit judges
have granted a ner trial on the ground
of additional evidence, after thge $41
*premne Court had sustained a sentence
of c4eath.
