Several persons called The Register today to speak of the plight that the prolonged snow season means for birds and at least one organized rescue project was underway. Ray Pershall and Clarence Robinson were heading an informally assembled group that will attempt an airlift mission. They are soliciting funds with which to buy feed and paper bags and for financing flights over the county. They are hoping to start the feed drops Thursday of bags containing a pound or two of corn and other grain along hedge rows. Eastern Kansas is now covered with six to nine inches of snow.
