Transcript THE -;*«• Z E P H Y H Monthly Bullotin of the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston,, ..Tex. December. 1924 Vol. 1, No. 3 Trees I think that I shall nevor see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts ner leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in Summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree. — Joyce Kilmer. Holly Conservation. Members of the Outdoor Nature Club have reason to feel encouraged over the interest that is being manifested in the olub's campaign in behalf of holly conservation. Expressions of approval and offers of cooperation are coming in from porsons and organizations in all parts of tho country. Most effective work is being dono by the wild flower Preservation Society of America. The Garden Club of America is also using its influence in awakening public opinion, and the American florists and horticulturists, at their recent convention, went on record as boing oager to stress tho use of flowers, cultivated plants and other substitutes for holly in Christmas decoration. Among other societies which have commended the purpose of this campaign are the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, the Girl Scouts, tho Associated'Mountaineering Clubs of North America, the American Institute of £ark Executives, and numerous Audubon Societies, Federations of Women's Clubs, Civic Clubs, and scientific institutions. Valuable suggestions and cooperation have been received from Dr. John C. Morriam, president of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, and from Dr. Henry Fairfield Osborn, President of the American Museum of Natural History. When the big trees, those ancient monarchs of the.western forests, seemed doomed to disappear before the advance of industry, Dr. Osborn started a powerful movement to save many of them for generations to come with the slogan "Save the Redwoods.'" Fully understanding the present status of the holly tree, Dr. Osborn now urg^es the nationwide use of the slogan "Save the H»lly.'",'in a letter approving the Outdoor Nature Club's work. With such general approval, it would seem that the rescue of the holly tree from impending oblivion is almost assured, but such is far from being true. The uso of holly at Yulotide is a custom which has existed for ages, beginning at a time when trees were to men almost as. the immeasureable vastness of the seas is to the trickle of a leaky faucet. A custom, of such long duration, through generation after generation, becomes so deeply rooted that it is difficult to stop it even for the comparatively brief period . necessary to work out a satisfactory solution of the problem it forces upon us. A closed season of just a few years, enforced by public Opinion, will stop the rapid disappearance of our Christmas symbol and give opportunity for the propogation of holly in sufficient quantities to provide a wreath for every home, without the necessity.of raiding our woodlands and destroying trees more valuable as features of our natural, scenery over a long period of years than as Yuletide decoration- ussful only for a few short days.
