It was reported that the measure would get the attention of the full House Committee
on Merchant Marine and Fisheries sometime in May, Rep. Dingell, who has an impressive
history of sponsoring conservation legislation, says he intends to "do all in my power
to see that this legislation is enacted into law during this session of Congress,"

Miss Melba Drake, 1746 Wroxton Court, Houston 77005,
Since we have reached what might be termed the end of our birding year, this section
should be in the singular, rather than plural, except for the fact that our one event
is a combination meeting, birding trip, picnic and gabfest.
We will meet at 2:00 P„ M., Saturday, June 6, at Gladys Galbraith's farm for our regular June meeting plus the other activities listed above. Bring meals (as if anyone
has to be reminded of that) and chairsj also grills, etc., for outdoor cooking, if you
wish. The place is known as the G-G Ranch, and directions for reaching it are taken
from last year's Spoonbill (hope they haven't moved any roads) as follows: Gladys
states "Our old place is the only house on the right hand side when one turns right
from West Montgomery Road to Cutten Road and is 8/10 miles from West Montgomery Road,
Coming in on Jackrabbit Road (I960) one turns right on Cutten Road, which is the first
through road after crossing West Montgomery Road, One continues south until after
crossing a small bridge, and about two blocks from this point our house is on the left,"
West Montgomery Road is Highway 149.
