G. Meeting at Hermann Park -(Mrs. G. R. Mattei, Secretary) The Ornithology Group of the Outdoor Nature Club held its regular bi-monthly meeting at Hermann Park on June 6, 1957. In spite of the threat of rain, between thirty and thirty-five persons came bringing their picnic suppers, and tables were spread in the pavilion. By the time supper was finished, the threat of rain had diminished and we moved under the trees for the business meeting. The meeting was called to order by the President, Mr. C. B. Gilman. The out-going Secretary-Treasurer, Miss Thelma Smith, read the minutes of the previous meeting and they were approved as read. She also read the financial report for the year ending April 30, 1957, which was accepted. Miss Ruth Moorman, Field Trip Chairman, reviewed the plans for the trip scheduled for June 9, to Galveston County Park and the Dickinson area. Miss Moorman also asked for suggestions for the July field trip. After some discussion, it was decided to go to Freeport and vicinity on July 14, starting at 7s30 a. m. Mr. Oilman announced the appointment of Mrs. Jerry Baker as chairman of the-telephone committee for the coming year. The question was raised as to what had been done about getting the area off Memorial Drive, near Jimmy Murray's home, set aside as a nature preserve. Mr. Murray advised that he had not as yet had time to call on council members regarding this matter. Armand Yramategui reported that due to persistent efforts of conservationists (including our group) and other interested persons, the Harris.Hawk Bill did not pas3. He and otheirs commented on the effects of this legislation. Mrs. Maurine Jarrel, who had made a recent visit to Audubon Park In New Orleans, told of the all-out precautions being taken to protect the two Whooping Cranes and their then prospective progeny.
