Transcript VOLUME XVII, NO. 4 August, 1968 ********************** * ♦ * "This most excellent canopy, the air," ♦ * Shakespeare wrote in "Hamlet" more than ♦ * three centuries ago, "why, it appears ♦ * no other thing to me than a foul and ♦ * pestilent congregation of vapours." ♦ * * ********************** PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP. OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB. HOUSTOH. TEXAS THE BREATH OF DEATH by Frank Graham, Jr., appearing in the July/August issue of AUDUBON magazine. The above quotation of the famous Bard is taken from Frank Graham's article. Mr. Graham is an "angry reporter," concerned with environmental pollution and the politics of conservation. This is the first of two AUDUBON reports by him on air pollution. The second, in the next issue, will discuss the automobile's contribution to our befouled canopy. His next book, SINCE SILENT SPRING, will be published in early I969 by Houghton Mifflin and will review developments in use and control of pesticides since the furor over that Rachael Carson classic. The editors know that many of our members subscribe to AUDUBON. To those who do not, we recommend that you BORROW a copy of this issue and read THE BREATH OF DEATH. THE WHODUNIT THAT INSPIRED A CAREER OF SPYINGI! Margaret Millar, a past president of the Mystery Writers of America and winner of its esteemed Edgar Allan Poe award, is best known for her suspense fiction. She published 19 novels before just completing her first nonfiction work, THE BIRDS AND THE BEASTS WERE THERE, published by Random House, Inc. We think you will enjoy her description of a "Bird Watcher." The Eds. "Some kinds of addiction are incurable. A heroin addict can be kept off his drug in a prison cell for years, but the result is not a cure. A bird watcher can be confined to a room with the blinds drawn and the windows closed tight. But when one of the windows is opened and a snatch of bird song drifts in, when a blind is raised and a small creature wings by, or certain leaves in a tree stir without wind, the addiction is more powerful than ever. It carries with it, however, a lifetime guarantee. Wherever you go in this world—the rain forests of the Amazon, the Artie tundra, the Mojave Desert, the Swiss Alps, the Taj Mahal, the top of the Empire State Building or the middle of Main Street, Peoria, 111.—no matter where you find yourself, there'll be birds to watch and you'll never again be bored. "Occasionally I am asked what difference bird watching has made in my life. I can only say that the days don't begin quickly enough, and the years go by too soon." This article appeared in the April 15, 1968 issue of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED and is reprinted with permission from Random House, Inc., publisher of THE BIRDS AND THE BEASTS WERE THERE.
