Transcript ■«■■"«« t~«*** _HE ZEPHYR Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor Mature Club of Houston, Tex. October, 1924 Vol. 1, No.l There is a pleasure in the- pathless woods, . There is a rapture in the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but Nature more, From these our interviews, in which I steal Prom all I may be, or have been before, To mingle with the Universe and feel '-.___' What I can ne'er express, -yet eai__ot"a_l conceal. Byron. It is customary 'to give everything of any particular interest, fr'om a battleship to a baseball bat, a name of its own. Naturally, our bulletin should have a name that at -. once identifies it with the outdoors, and especially the delightful outdoors that surrounds the lively Southern city we call home. Do you rec_ll the sunshiny day in Spring when you tramped mile aft-jr mile along the bayou, so enchanted by the first colorful wave of wild flowers and so eager to.see every interesting feathered migrant of the hordes passing through that you failed to notice the warmth oecasaioned by your exercise and the hint of summer in the air? Then,' as you paused for a moment on a grassy ridge, you felt the full affect of the Gulf breeze, cool and exhilirating, sweeping across the open, laden with the fragrance of the fields and the sounds of the outdoors. The Zephyr claims its name from the refreshing breeze that seems to belie the tropical richness of our fields and woods with its tempering mildness. This little paper will- . try to live up to its name by carrying with it a bit of the breadth and wholesomeness of the gre^t outdoors, and by reminding us of our glorious heritage from Mother Nature; which is ours in trust, to be passed on to those who. follow as it was passed on to us. Opportunity' The Club's first official field trip of the Pall was held Sunday afternoon, Sept. 14th, in the Southwest portion of Camp, iogan Memorial Park. Here we saw a delectable' exhibit of wild fruits and flowers, a wide variety of trees-, shrubs and vines,, and a satisfying number-of the wild, creatures that dwell among them. While it has been announced th_t 'the "general plan is to develop the park so as to bring out its natural beauty, it is hoped that this small fraction of t'he whole, now almost a virgin forest, will be specifically and"definitely set aside as a wild flower garden, arboretum, and bird sanctuary. This would be a delight to our citizens for all time, and add to Houston's prestige as "the most talked of city in America." o?PK.
