| With this copy, THE OWL will quietly
fold its wings and go back to its meditations and its favorite haunts
among the caves of the rock hills.
Should it ever plume itself for another flight it will flutter down occasionally at least among its old friends at Wray.
Its hoot will no doubt, be missed by its patrons and especially the members of the school. May you be fortunate enough next year to secure and cage as amiable and delightful a pet as the OWL has been.
The OWL wishes to thank collectively all who have patronized it and also those who cheered it along with words of encouragement. To all it offers its claw in a farewell woo-hoo-woo-hoo.
This copy of The Owl was preserved in Edna Bales Kitzmiller's historical papers and was passed on in her estate. It is currently in the Yuma Museum. It was transcribed by Lee Zion.
