Transcript i i-_3 Volume XXIII, No. 4 August, 1974 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR MATURE CLUB. HOUSTOH. TEXAS LAURA GREENBAUM RESIGNS ..,','■ -V It Is with deep regret we announce the resignation of Laura Greenbaum as editor of THE SPOONBILL, a position she has held with distinction for nearly two years. As you know, our newsletter is published for just one purpose: to disseminate Information and knowledge on birding, especially in this area, Laura has consistently maintained the high goals set by former editors in past years in keeping the contents restricted to the enjoyment of birding. We all join in thanking her for her long and devoted service. Margaret Jones is the new editor of THE SPOONBILL. Articles about birding and birders should be sent to her at 4902 Fern St., Bellaire, Texas 77401. Her telephone number Is 665-4197. Margaret has resigned as Vice-Ghairman (Membership), and a new VIce-Chairman will be announced later. As most of you remember, when the cost of printing mounted so high, a committee investigating alternatives, recommended: raising dues or curtailing the number of issues in a year. Neither of these solutions was wanted, so a mimeograph was borrowed, and the editors, (then David and Dorothy Lefkovits) started typing stencils instead of master sheets. Our growing bank balance testifies to the economy of this method, since the only cost to us is the paper, the mimeograph supplies, and postage. Therefore, an editor must assemble material for THE SPOONBILL, decide the contents, and edit it (a load materially lightened from other years since Dan Hardy does the Clearing House). In addition, the editor Is responsible for a good clear stencil for the mimeograph. In these duties, Laura has set very high standards for the new editor to follow. 1974-75 ROSTER The 1974-75 Rosters are being mailed now to the members of the OG. Both members and subscribers are listed,: and if any subscriber would like to have a copy (there are some extra ones), please call or write Mrs. Richard Davis, 10602 Cedarhurst, Houston, Texas — 723-8559. '■'■' MERCER PARK ARBORETUM This newest Harris County Parle was opened just this spring, having been acquired from Mr. & Mrs. Charles Mercer, who desired that their 14% acre homesite be maintained as an arboretum and enjoyed- by the public. It is open from 9 to 6 Monday through Friday, and 2 to 6 on Sunday. Volunteers are in attendance on Sundays to show people around and answer questions about the plants, shrubs, and flowers. Also, people interested in various subjects have been called on to be there on Sundays to present a program, or give information, or-just answer questions about their particular specialty. For instance, the OG was called on recently, and Harry and Avis, with Paul and Margaret Jones, took some printed material about the ONC and OG out there, and stayed to answer questions about birding from any interested visitor. They had already "cased the joint" the week before, and found 14 species of birds. Unfortunately, the rains came that day. The Entomology Group is to have some representatives there on August 25th. To reach tho park, turn right off IH45 onto FM 1960, and proceed east to the intersection of 1960 and Aldine-Westfield road, turn left and proceed north 1.3 miles to entrance on right. Park on grass just inside the gate, and walk up the winding shrive to headquarters.
