Transcript THE ZEPHYR Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston, Texas. _____»._1985 Vol. 2, No. 7 He is happiest who hath power To gather wisdom from a flower, And wake his heart in every hour To pleasant gratitude. ~ WordsvKKPth'V Hearty Greetings, Neighbor! On the map, Omaha, Nebraska, is rather a strenuous hiking distance from Houston, Texas, but in the -American Association of Mountaineering Clubs's yearbook for 1925, our next-door neighbor, just ahead of us in alphabetical order, Is the Omaha Walking Club; so we are more than pleased to acknowledge receipt of a cordial letter from this fine organization, enclosing a copy of their yearbook for 1925. As a sample of the material in this highly creditable publication, official figures show that total receipts for the year 1924 were $880.06, that the active membership is 251, and that 49 trips on foot were made, the average attendance on these hikes being eighteen. We would like to tell more here about our Omaha friends, but want to quote a paragraph from their message sending us their yearbook: "We do this for the purpose of promoting acquaintance and friendly intercourse between the organizations comprising the Associated Mountaineering Clubs of North America, and between the individual members of those organizations as well, because we think such may facilitate the occasional interchange of valuable information, increase the enjoyment of travel by pro- moting pleasant friendships, and add generally to the well-being of those groups of men and women who know and appreciate America's outdoors, and upon whom depends the preservation of the beauty and scenic resources of our land for coming generations." "And may tossing billows of pink snow add youth and color and abiding inspiration to our city." "Why not plant crope myrtle, and more crepe myrtle? Let the streets be lined with them; let this gossamer foijm of pink snow form rolling, res tful and reassuring banks of inspiration. Why not think in terms of crepe myrtle - free, open, cheerful and sympathetic?" These words of R. A. Sell, first president of the Outdoor Natufe Club, were published in the Houston Chronicle several years jjago, but arQ quoted here because they suitably express the attitude of the club's members and friends towards the movement to make Houston in reality a city of crepe myrtles. Such efforts as the recent garden campaign, and this one, can not but hasten the day when the seasons in and around Houston will form a procession of floral loveliness - when the soring gladness of the dogwood and the redbud in the woodlands complements the multicolored patterns of our early pansy beds; when summer garlands of crepe myrtle line our boulevards as snowy-cupped magnolias gleam above the forest bypaths; and when flaming poinsettias on our lawns rival the winter glory of the symbolic holly, no longer torn from its sylvan setting for a moment's brief possession. If our good Intentions, so widely broadcast, moan anything at all, let us plant more and more blossoming trees and shrubs, and while we are doing so, let us spare and protect those gratuitous gardens of the wild Nature plants for our enjoyment. One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. — Shakespeare,
