Transcript <_ Volume 6 No. 12 April 1958 ****** *********** STACK-UP Tennessee biologists Roy Anderson, Sumner Dew, and Jay Hammond saw two Mallards collide in mid-air as two separate flights of ducks swooped down to some decoys.

There were no cafes, drive-ins, or filling stations on the back roads we followed, but now and then we passed a farm house nestled among the trees and occasionally one that was deserted and in ruins. We also saw and heard many birds as we traveled among the back roads. Our caravan left the Almeda Highway at a sign which read "Five Miles to Anchor" but we passed through Anchor without knowing it. The railway station that once displayed the town name had been moved away and only an empty spot remained where the station-had stood by the railroad tracks. A few miles down the road from what once was Anchor, a Pileated Woodpecker flew across the road and settled on a tall utility pole.
