Transcript 2- Volume 5 No. 6 October 1956 ***** ********************* * THE HOUSTON POST * * Texas is for the birds—and the birds are * * for Texas. Did you know that of the 730 * * species known to be in the United States, * * 540, or three-fourths of them may be found * * in this State? Such State popularity must * * be deserved.

ORNITHOLOGY GROUP REPORTS Ornithology Group Meeting - Thursday, October 4 - (Thelma Smith) A hard thundersbower rained out the picnic supper which was to have preceded the meeting but at about 7:45 p.m„ Jimmy Murray, 0. G. Chairman, called the meeting to order with about twenty-five present. He introduced Mr. Bob Bredehoeft and family, and John O'Neill, both new members, and Mr. Horace Jeter, a guest. Following the minutes Hr. Murray reported that the Ornithology Group resolution regarding wildlife sanctuaries within the City of Houston had been presented to the Boar-d of Directors of the Outdoor Nature Club. The Board is to appoint a committee to talk to the proper city officials. Norma Oates, in Carrie Holcomb*s absence,presented at her request an idea for another 0. G. project — that of contacting JOhes and Laughlin who has an option on some land at Cove for a steel plant, to see if they will set aside as a wildlife sanctuary, a small acreage on a point which is used as a feeding and resting station by migrants. After some discussion it was decided that Jimmy Murray would find out how we might best approach Jones and Laughlin on this matter. It was also brought to the attention of the group that a bird recording by Norma and Jerry Stillwell will be played over Station KTRH on October 14 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. (Cheek newspaper to be sure of correct time of broadcast). Hr. Aldrich requested the O.G.'o appoint a committee to work on the Garden Show to bo held next March. Jimmy Murray will work with him and other volunteers are needed. Mr. Aldrich wants ideas and suggestions for creating an attractive booth for the Outdoor Nature Club at the flower show. If you can help with this project call Mr. Aldrich (HO 5-1878) or Jimmy Murray (UN 1-8837). Mrs. Maurine Jarrell, official hostess for tho ONC booth at the flower show asked for volunteers to assist her in this work. At tho conclusion of tho business meeting, everyone enjoyed hearing a record from Josiephine Wilkin's collection "A Day in Algonquin Park," Each member present was given a script of the sequence of events in this thirty-minute presentation of bird songs and other marsh sounds. The program was eoneluded with the showing of color movies taken by Jimmy Murray at the beach and in his own yard.
