Transcript Page 9. Sarah Gordon requested a change in the bank for the OG account. It was decided that the Treasurer should be able to choose a bank for convenience and that there was no need for a group vote on the subject. As a matter of form, in case the bank stipulates it, the motion was made, seconded and carried that the account be moved from First City Rational Bank to the Bank of Texas. DUES ARE DUE!!!!!!!!! Steve Williams Check-lists, Field Check-lists, Golden Eagle Passports, Good Birding Trips, and Gwen Frostlc stationery were offered for sale. Julia Bradley led the congratulations to Dirk Hagemeyer for having made Audubon Magazine with his picture of the Masked Duck. The motion was made, seconded, and carried that members and subscribers of the OG be lumped together in the Roster and that some designation of members be made. Respectfully submitted, Katrina Ladwig, Secretary REPORT OH HEARING HELD IN ANGLETON JUNE 21 BY TEXAS WATER QUALITY BOARD REGARDING PERMIT AMENDEMENT REQUESTED BY TEXAS GULF SULPHUR - by Melba Drake The hearing on June 21st in Angleton concerning the Permit Amendment requested by Texas Gulf Sulphur to increase water dumpage into the San Bernard River was reported favorably to Texas Gulf Sulphur. It was recommended by the presiding officer, Paul A. Philbin, that the Permit be granted, with certain conditions. This was done in spite of evidence presented that revealed the waste water had destroyed the river bed several miles upstream and several miles downstream from the entrance of the waste water. This area is covered"with an anaerobic sludge that promotes microbiological action which is now creating an oxygen deficiency in the river. During hot summer months dissolved O2 in the river could drop to harmful levels." The report of this hearing will be presented to the Texas Water Quality Board's regular meeting on July 25 in Austin. At this time additional oral and written protests will be heard "at the Board's discretion!" Letters of protest must be received five days before the July 25th date. Write to: Texas Water Quality Board, 1108 Lavaca Street, Austin, Texas 78701 or telephone 475-265L. -Keep in mind that there are 20. other permits to dump water into this river!! FLASH!!

Apparently in his absence from the city, the neighborhood kids had opened up his roof by causing a fire, "bottle rockets" being suspect. This happened on July 7th, probably a continuation of the July 4th FIREWORKS custom. Our commiserations to you Steve.... This is the sad tale of an OWL: On Saturday, July 13th, Dave Marrack called us and told us that there was a Great Horned Owl in his back yard and would we like to see it. Of course, we dropped all work for a time and dashed out to his back yard, the Jack Smiths and the Ladwigs also were there. The owl had settled down in a rather dark "tepee"-like pile of stacked lumber against a tree. It was on the ground and appeared very sluggish. It watched us while we watched it, was given two nice young mice by Dave which it apparently relished, and so we went home feeling very happy that we had been able to observe this owl so closely and for so long a time. However, as the day wore on Dave went up to the owl and found that it was very ill indeed, that it was undoubtedly an escapee since it had jesses on its legs. The jesses had rubbed skin off the legs and they were very badly infected with maggots present, - In spite of the expert ministrations of Dave and his wife, the owl died on Sunday night.
