Transcript j__a eb=a A VOLUME XVI, NO. 10 February, I968 "The web of life .is long, strong, and wonderfully intricate. No thread of it can be cut or weakened without endangering the whole chain of life. The web links the lives of people, animals, and plants in matters of food, shelter, and the space they need to live, grow, and have their being. ... The life of a bird touches the lives of birds, insects, fish, animals, plants, and people in many ways. ... Grass does not ask itself how important it is but in the end all flesh is grass. Fore's ts grow in their ordained way; they do not say •Come!* or 'Go!' to the creatures that seek food, shelter, rest, breeding places, and recreation in them.

TEXAS THE ROLE OF BIRDERS IN THE CONSERVATION MOVEMEHT - by Victor Emanuel I find it difficult to set down on paper the largely extemporaneous remarks I made at the December Ornithology Group meeting. My main point was that Texas stands at a crossroads in conservation and that birders have a critical role in this movement. Texas is becoming an urban state. Its cities are becoming great metropolitan centers with all the problems associated with large populations. Chief among these is the problem of air and water pollution. The pollution problem has transformed the conservation issue from a minor to a major political issue. Hardly a day goes by without some reference in the newspapers to the pollution problem. Along with this heightened public awareness of the problem of pollution is an awareness that beautiful natural areas are limited and are worth preserving for aesthetic and economic reasons. Thus at this juncture in the state's political and economic development a great opportunity exists for conservationists if they will seize upon it. In Eastern states that have already entered this urban culture birders have played and continue to play a leading role in the conservation movement. This can happen here also. Birding is both a scientific and a poetic endeavor. It is scientific because we study birds. We record the numbers we see of each species, conduct Christmas bird counts, breeding bird censuses, and observe the habits and habitats of different kinds of birds. But
