Transcript *v*» THE ZEPHYR Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston, Texas* October, 1925 Vol. 2, No.lC eiQBnxBj'Oo The bubbling brook doth leap when I come by, Because my feet find measure with Its call; ", The birds know when the friend they love is nigh, For I am known to them, both great and small. The flower that on the lonely hillside grows Expects me there when spring its bloom has given; And many a tree and bush my wanderings knows, And e'en the clouds and silent stars of heaven. For he who with his Master walks aright, C^hall be their lord, as Adam was before; His ear shall catch each sound with new delight, Each object wears the dress that then it wore; And he, as when erect in soul he stood, Hear from his Father's lips that all is good. -- Jones Very. The Save The Redwoods League, in perpetuating impressive stands of "Big Trees" In the West, for the edification of future generations, has established a precedent that may well be followed by nature lovers and conservationists in setting aside and dedicating to posterity some fitting examples of the magnificent Holly forests still existing In the South. Unless such action is taken soon, the golden opportunity will be gone. Scattered fragments of these groves may continue to exist for years, when the remaining supply has dwindled to the point where it no longer has any commercial value, but the splendid stands of Holly that form such valuable features of our scenery will quickly disappear before the steady march of progress in the rapidly developing South. We can advance no better argument than to quote from the address of Prof. Henry Vincent Hubbard, of the American Society of Landscape Architects, before the National Conference on 0uta<5§r ";K Recreation, in May, 1924: "As man has increased on the face of the earth, the amount of actually wild landscape has decreased, and in our time it is decreasing at an enormously accelerated rate, so that the unhampered expressions of nature's forces which were formerly almost the inevitable environment of man, remain only In Inaccessible and inhospitable places, and even there they are rapidly passing away before the transforming forces of man's enterprise, A possession of inestimable value to mankind, which once was so common that it went unheeded, is now becoming in our country so rare that we are beginning to appreciate its preciousness. The responsibility rests upon us, as it has never rested upon any generation of men before, to see to it that some scattered remnants of natural character and natural beauty, which we still have left to us, are preserved for the recreation and inspiration of the generations to come. This is not a duty that can be put upon the shoulders of our successors; the destruction of this natural beauty is imminent; unless it is definitely controlled, It is Inevitable; and once destroyed, once put Into the possession of man and adapted to his uses, this beauty in its highest manifestations is destroyed forever, and no late repentance no expenditure of money, however great, will bring back to our sue-' cessors what we can now so readily acquire and so easily preserve." Welcome, Izaak Walton League of America! • _ _ The or8anization of a chapter of the Izaak Walton League in Houston is a cause.that should receive the earnest support of every citizen who appreciates what outdoor life has meant lhJt_!e'Cfici0': making of America. It may be that some have hesitated to give their unqualified approval because the -League is mainly an organization of sportsmen, and in the past many such organizations have been characterized by policies far from broad and constructive. The achievements, the principles, and the leadership of the Izaak Walton League, both local and national, give promise of the ultimar-P accomplishment of the League's pledge f'to Restore for Posteritv thl Outdoor America of our Ancestors". That's work that is worthwhile
