Transcript Page 3. HOTES FROM TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE NEWS BULLETINS CONSERVATION MOVIE; A 14-minute color movie entitled "Crisis on the Coast" has been slated for showings in three Texas theaters during August, Sponsored by State agencies in Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida, the film deals with preservation of estuarine waters along the Gulf of Mexico. It will ooen at the Loew's State in Houston Aug. 19 or Aug. 26. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is a cooperating agency for the film, which is being distributed by Universal-International to its affiliate theaters. It was produced in cooperation with the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Commercial Fisheries. The film is narrated by Arthur Godfrey and features the music of the Charlie Byrd Quintet. It is similar in theme to the Department's "Estuarine Heritage" film which has had wide distribution thr-ughout the State. WHITEWING DOVE; Greater concern for an international bird, the white-winged dove which inhabits border regions of both nations along the Rio Grande, is being reflected in heavier law enforcement and increased research in Mexico. Cooperation was the keynote of a meeting last month at Nuevo Laredo, in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, where Dr. Rudolfo Hernandez Corzo pointed out to Texas and United States officials that inspection of hunters' aircraft and other law enforcement measures have produced 51 justifiable prosecutions of violations with heavy fines and confiscation of firearms and equipment. Dr. Corzo is the Director General of the Mexican Wildlife Department. Further support for law enforcement in that nation was provided by an award of more than $5000 made by concerned private citizens, business and wildlife organizations in the U. S. Dr, Corzo said the fund will be used to mount one or more additional enforcement patrols during the forthcoming whitewing season opening Aug, 1. He also noted that six of his employees have banded 36,000 whitewings in a study ofthe species in Mexico. Existing and possible future sanctuaries for the birds were discussed, HEW COLOR BROCHURE: A colorful and informative new brochure has been published by th# Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's Park Services. The foldout includes a detailed introduction to the State's geographical regions, a review of outdoor education opportunities, information about accommodations and services and an illustrated map pinpointing park locations. The publication may be obtained fr#e at any of the State parks, tourist bureaus, or from the Department's Austin headquarters.

One of the great problems of water pollution has been detergents, the sor in which we wash our clothes. Detergents just don't disappear when we wash them down the drain, they go through the sewer system to our cities' sewage treatment plants. Most of these plants are unable to do anything about one of the most serious pollutants in the detergents we use—phosphates. Detergents contain large amounts of phosphates, an essential nutrient of algae. An overabundance of nutrients results in large growths of algae, which choke up many of our waterways now. The death of these masses of algae results in oxygen removal from the water, thereby killing fish. The average consumer can fight pollution by buying low phosphate detergents! BIRD NEWSPAPER The Purple Martin may be the only bird that has its own newspaper. The Griggsville Wild Bird Society, Griggsville, Ind. puts out a paper, "The Purple Martin Capitol News," WHAT IS A FEATHER? by Hank Robison Recently, I was searching the beach for sand dollars. Since they were scarce, my attention was easily distracted by a feather lying on the sand. The feather was gray and white, and beautifully formed. Probably from a gull or tern, I decided.
