Transcript The Zephyr Page #4 To Our Friends Everywhere: Only a few hundred copies of "The Zephyr" are run off each month. About half of these are mailed out to genuine lovers of the outdoors in various parts of the country, for the purpose of increase ing interest in conservation and stimulating a spirit of friendly co-i operation among those who appreciate America's heritage of the woodsy fields and waters, and desire to perpetuate it. After you have read this little bulletin, if its purposes meet with your approval, will you not place it in your public librarj where it can be seen by others, or send it to some speaker, teacher or writer who might add to and further spread its message? If you know of some way in which a copy could be made to do more effective work, drop a line to Jos. M. Heiser, Jr., 1908 Washington Blvd., Houston, Texas', and the copy will be forthcoming. The preservation of the wilderness supplies a unique need lnj recreation. Unfortunately, it is a need that must be met by foresight. Once destroyed, it cannot be re-created "Wilderness" is the one kind of playground which mankind cannot build to.order. The peerless beauty of the wild - who can measure its influence in shaping human happiness? Or who would hold against such value the few paltry dollars possible of extraction through so-calle development? Action to retain our spots of wilderness will only come when those, who believe that this should be done speak out again and again. (Excerpts from "The Last stand of the Wilderness'^ by Aldo Leopold, in American Forests & Forest Life)., Most people who, as a hobby or avocation, engage in humanitarian or educational work of any character, do so because of the pleasure and satisfaction they derive from it, and care little about any credit that may be due them because of their efforts. That s ome forms of "uplift" and "reform" work have been greatly overdone, there can be no doubt, but where such movements are unwise or Impractical the truth can be revealed by better method than attempting to belittle the motives of those who sponsor them. The pose of being intensely practical and unsentimental is often a very effective one for the few who wish to advance their own selfish interests contrary to the rights and interests of the many. That is the reason why cries of "wholly impractical" and "maudlin sentiment" are sometimes raised in opposition to movements of a construc-i tive character, when no better means of opposition can be found. Sentiment, whether wholesome or otherwise, has furnished the motive power for every great work of man since the dawn, of history. Patriotism, ambition, civic pride - sentiment is the basis of them all. To quote from the address of Mr. Lee Hammer, of the Russell Sage Foundation, before the "ational Conference on Outdoor Recreation, in May, 1924: "The work of most private agencies has in its foundation a rather high percentage of sentiment. This sentiment furnishes the motive power that drives people to work and plan and sacrifice their own comfort and means to do this worthy thing that they have organized to bring about, whether it be getting children out of the sluma into the glorious' open country for a never-to-be-forgotten holiday, or the establishment of sanctuaries and safe breeding grounds for the migratory birds, or the reforesting of the great denuded areas, or the restoration of polluted waterways, or the preserving of reaches ' of forest and mountain and stream for the people's perpetual heritage or the blazing of trails for hiking and the promotion of their use, j or finding a means for working girls of moderate means to have a joyous holiday In the country under right conditions, or any one of : the many worthy objects of these organizations that have been drawn together here for this conference." Everybody knows that common-sense and well directed effort are necessary to attain success, no matter what tho object may be, and the plan or -'Ideal that has the right kind of sentiment behind it usually has the same sort of Intelligence and care put into its execution. And so, when you hear the accusation of sentimentality" broadcast with great fanfare of trumpets and beating of tom-toms, you can focus your field-glasses on the source of the noise with the expectation of finding an equatorial brunette con- ./ cealed in the fuel pile.
