Meet in Galveston, 2:00 p.m. at the Humble filling station on the corner of Broadway (Hwy. 75) and 61st Street. The territory covered will include marshes, ponds and lakes in the western section of the island. This trip is especially recommended for beginners as it will provide a good opportunity to study the summer residents of Galveston Island as well as early fall migrants. A late picnic supper on the beach is planned and some may want to go for a cool swim in the gulf. For further information or for transportation to Galveston, call Mrs. Chas. F. (Jerry) Baker at WA-1-26A4, who will act as leader on this outing.

During the afternoon the guests followed a marked nature trail and attempted to name the 58 kinds of trees and 15 types of vines numbered along the trail. There were 38 additional plants - wildflowers, grasses and vines - that had not previously been identified. Many of these were classified and named before the afternoon was over. Birds identified while following the nature trail included - crested flycatcher, summer tanager, red-headed woodpecker, white-eyed vireo, red-eyed vireo and orchard oriole. Supper was served on tables under a large shelter. Each group or family brought one covered dish for the main course and when all the food was spread on the tables it was a magnificent feast. Giant glasses of iced tea were furnished by the Botany Group. Some excitement was caused when an immature copperhead snake attempted to join the party at the picnic tables. ma After supper Robert Tabony set up two telescopes in a large clearing and after king a short explanation of how to use the telescopes and what to look for, all were given an opportunity to look at the planet Saturn whose rings as well as some of its moons, were visible through the telescopes. Thanks are due Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Haver, Mr. and Mrs. L. N. Dexter, and Mrs. Edna i^iner who planned and made arrangements for this pleasant outing. July 17 - Trip to Sargent and vicinity Along the highway many nighthawks were observed on telephone wires and fence posts; one, resting on a low shrub, did not fly away when we stopped the car less than fifteen feet from his perch. In a pasture near Cedar Lane we saw a large flock of long-billed curlews (possibly a hundred or more). In the same
