Transcript The Zephyr Page #3 Notes and News. Dr, J. J, Crumley, of the Department of Forestry, Ohio State Agricultural Experiment Station, recently gave a lecture before the Wild Flower Preservation Society of America, Cincinnati Chapter, in which he told how the State of Ohio is now selecting and purchasing beautiful and rugged spots within its borders for what are to be known as "Forest Parks". Only a short time ago, the Legislature of the State of Texas, in the name of economy, refused to accept as gifts hundreds of acres of picturesque scenery and natural-grandeur. Let us hope that posterity, in going over the records, will be generous in judging the value of our methods of economizing! One of the most convincing and scholarly papers ever presented before the Outdoor Nature Club was that read by Dr. A.J, James at the annual meeting, on May 15th, the title of which was: "Evidences of Purposefulness shown in the Genesis of the World". Herds of reindeer in Alaska are now worth $1,550,000.00 more than the United States paid to Russia in 1867 for the entire territory, according to official figures reported to the Secretary of the Interior. The pecan was named the state tree of Texas by the Thlrty- Thirty-sixth Session of the State Legislature, the act becoming effective March 20th, 1919.- John Philip Sousa, beloved band leader, is a lover of nature, and the grounds about his beautiful home are made merry by the music of many birds. The Zephyr is glad to record the names of four young people of Houston who received honorable.mention for their fine work in the Junior Wild Life Conservation Campaign conducted by Holland's Magazine last, fall and' winter: Margaret Brush Alline Mabry Vincent Nealy Reginald Zuber The Public Library has just received two new sets of natural histories which all members of the Outdoor Nature Club will find of great Interest: Wild Life of the World, by Richard Lydekker, three volumes; and The Royal Natural History, by the same author. The first mentioned is a general natural history, popular in style, and deals with every kind of animal life in all aspects throughout the world. The six volume set is a reference work of the highest value. It covers the whole range of the animal kingdom, and is fully and beautifully Illustrated. A few of the other interesting nature books in the Public Library are listed below: A Game Ranger's Notebook, by Percival. Mr. Percival writes about all the most important species of African big game, describing his experiences of thirty years in the veldts and jungles of the so-called "dark continent". In Brightest Africa, by Carl E. Akeley. This is a book of absorbing interest by a scientist and lover of wild life who has done much in the development of the art of taxidermy. Mr. Akeley tells of his experiences among the gorillas, those much maligned manlike anthropoids, of the charge of an infuriated elephant, of a bare-handed contest with a leopard, and many other equally interesting adventures. Haunts of Life, by J. A. Thomson. Modern biology popularized, without the loss of scientific accuracy, into an entertaining account of the wonders of the sea and shore, opening a new world to the non-scientific reader and filling it with the marvels of strange forms of life. Caterpillars and Their Moths, by Ida M. Eliot and C. G. Soule. Interesting information for tho beginner in this important branch of entomology. Loss than two hundred copies of _he Zephyr are run off monthly, so each copy must do double work. When you havo road your copy, keep it in circulation by handing-it to an interested friend or mailing it to an acquaintance in some other city.
