TIME TO REVISE
The attempt to adapt the American
eagle to peace dollar requirements
merely shows how much we need a
distinctive American bird for our
totem pole. The eagle was borrowed.
While this country has a few native
species of that bird, the idea of using
the eagle as a national emblem runs
back thousands of years. The Romans
adopted it. So did the Austrians and
Germans, ana no telling now many
more nations. By character the eagle
is much better adapted to those coun
tries tnan ours, tie is not nail so
noble a bird as tradition makes him
appear. He is a close relative of the
turkey buzzard, the main difference in
habit being that he is a little bigger,
and usually, though not always, takes
his prey alive. His so-called "game
ness" is that of the big bully which I
always attacks inferiors in size and
strength. Unlike his humbler relative
of the vulture tribe, he is not a good
scavenger, and performs no useful
function in the economy of nature. On
the Roman standard he was fairly
typical of the character of the con conquerors.
