TEXAS STATEMENT BY THE NEW EDITORS After the literary ovation afforded me in the September issue by former editor, Vic Emanuel, I felt, to say the very least, a note of appreciation was forthcoming to both Vic and those others of you who have called with messages of congratulations and encouragement in the past few weeks. Please accept my heartfelt thanks. I should like to take advantage of this moment to explain some of the changes and additions that will occur in this and subsequent editions. The most important change, starting with this issue, is the revamping of the Clearing House. It is my hope that the changes wrought will bring it from an obscure cateh-«ll to a valuable monttily summary of all observations made in our checklist area by all observers. It will be built around Arlie McKay's beautifully detailed reports^ the Snyders' steady and complete coverage of the LaPorte area^ and the periodic birding forays that regularly occur to Galveston, West Harris County, Freeport, etc., by our urban-bound members* It will become a readily available history of our observations as a unit, the value of which I am sure Fred Webster, our regional editor for the Audubon Field Notes, who monthly has to peruse the entire SPOONBILL for reportable material, and Steve Williams, who has just finished compiling a highly modified new checklist for us, would readily assess as high. I have long toyed with the ideaaof submitting a monthly book report to the SPOONBILL for the readers' benefit. My friend, D. A. Deaver, has kindly offered himself available for this service and has written a brief introductory note explaining purpose and scope in this edition. Articles of interest on bird behavior will be more than welcome e.g. see H, L. Patten's A STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL this issue. "Social Birding" articles will be accepted and used on a-spaee available basis, except of course, for the monthly field trip report which will continue to be used to add a very necessary touch of color. It is not my intention to turn the SPOONBILL into a strletly scientific organ but rather, to regulate in just proportions, scientific and social news enabling all members whatever their leaning, to enjoy reading an interesting and informative SPOONBILL.., I will appreciate all new suggestions and welcome constructive criticism from all members. I should like to stress the importance of your individual observations; they should be reported.. This is your magazine, and I deem it an honor to be at your service. T. Ben Feltner. CLEARING HOUSE (Revised) KEY & CREDITS: Although this monster I have created may seem at first glance a little bewildering it is really quite simple to interpret after familiarizing yourself with the Key::
