Transcript irrssn > VOLUME XVIV, No, 1 May, 1970 DUES FOR THE COMING YEAR ARE NOW DUE! 11 PUBLISHED BY THE ORNITHOLOGY GROUP, OUTDOOR NATURE CLUB, HOUSTON, TEXAS MINUTES OF MEETING OF ORNITHOLOGY GROUP by Louise Rogers Chairman Wallace C. Mebane, Jr. called the meeting to order on the north steps of the Downtown Public Library at 10:10 A.M., Sunday, April 26, 1970. He extended a warm welcome to the Group's new member, Janet Fuller, The Chairman then reported that the Group has completely sold out the supply of Field Check-List, The last 1500 copies were purchased by Timewealth Corporation for free distribution to people who come into their office in Galveston. Mr, Mebane suggested that the checklist eould be re-ordered as is, or better still, reworded slightly to include some new accidentals and omitting the wording that the checklist can be purchased from the Museum of Natural History, Mr, Mebane also recommended that the price be increased. During a discussion of Group finances, it was brought out that as of February 1, the Group had approximately $97 on hand. On March 31, the amount was approximately $127. Dues for<.the coming year are now due, but the Chairman announced that we need to raise some additional money. He mentioned several methods: raise dues, solicit outside contributions, have a garage sales but he welcomed any other suggestions. Announcement was made that the June outing would be a combination field trip, picnic, and meeting at Gladys Galbreath's Ranch, Saturday, June 2, at 2 P.M. Bring a picnic supper and chairs. Mr, Mebane then mentioned that the telescope has not been used much this year. The charge for rental is $1.00 a day. One year it brought in $18, nothing the next year, and only $1.00 so far this year. He also recommended that the Ornithology Group restrict the use of the scope by limiting it to field trips of 0G or ONC or other study groups and restrict its custody to officers of 0G and OHC, The editors of the SPOONBILL, Mr. and Mrs, David Lefkovits, necessary to use a better grade of paper for the SPOONBILL, to $12,30, announced that it had become increasing the cost from $9.00 There being no further business, the meeting adjouned at 10;55 A.M. 0G APRIL FIELD TRIP by Louise Rogers Twenty-six species of birds including Rock Dove, Mourning Dove, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Goatsucker, Chimney Swift, Scissor-tailed Flycateher, Blue Jay, Mockingbird.
