Transcript VOLUME X No. 19 November 1961 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP of the OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB HOUSTON, TEXAS Sfcsj From the Wall Street Journal, Sept. 18, 1961 Letter to the Editor: In your editorial of Sept. 8 you discuss the Wilderness Bill under the title "The Wasteland." You end by asking the question, "What sense is it, in the name of preserving a wilderness, to create a wasteland?" Would the man who wrote those words come with me some June, July, August or September, and let me introduce him to the wonders of a wilderness sanctuary? Trees are not merely board feet. Grass, sedges and flowers are not merely food for sheep and cattle. Granite and basalt cliffs have values even though they contain no marketable ores. The dollar sign is not the only taeriean value. There are values in a spiritual sense, even for those who can't climb peaks or hike trails. Where the wilderness is undisturbed an invalid in a wheelchair can get a feel of another world even though he can enter the sacred precincts only a few hundred yards. These retreats are increasingly important to us all. When our population doubles, as it will before 2,000 A.D., there will be only a fraction of the wilderness sanctuaries necessary for our needs. The wilderness is the domain where man can escape the noise of motors and the smoke and debris of civilization. The "wasteland" is not the sanctuary where nature.' s ecology is unbroken. The wasteland is made up of paved streets, factories and chimneys that spew smoke and smog, I repeat, if your editor will come with me and see the wilderness that is part of America, he will fight to preserve, not destroy, the few islands of wilderness that are left.
