Transcript The Zephyr Page #2 Pood for Thought On May 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of this year, the National Conference on Outdoor Recreation was held in Washington, D, C. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, chairman, in opening the, great conference, said: "Wo are mot hero today at the call of President Coolodge, as I see it, to endeavor to aid in preserving for the people of our country that which made our national character - our out-of-doors.... Because of its far-reaching effect, every one of the organizations today included in this hall, and thousands of others in this country, are primarily interested in the problems we have got before us. Above all, it is the concern of any and all organizations or individuals who are working for Americanism, in the highest sense' of the term." One hundred and twenty-eight organizations throughout' the country were represented by four hundred and nineteen authorized delegates. Among all these representatives, there was only ONE person giving Texas as his home state, and there was not a single organization specifically Texan represented in the Whole great assembly. It was decided to select a committee of seventy leaders in all outdoor activities, to act as an advisory counoil in the forming of a permanent organization. Sixty members were nominated by the oonference, and here again Texas was conspicuously absent from the list. In fact, the- entire South took a very negligible part in this important convention. Our next outdoor observation tour is sot for Sunday afternoon, October 5th. We will study the work of Autumn's paint brush upon flowers and foliage, and find out what feathered tourists from the North are visiting here with our own interesting avian population. Don't hold back, but come on out and drink in th- aroma of the pines, hear the Pall overture of the woodland orchestra and see the dogwood in its October array, almost as beautiful as its Springtime bridal veil of white. The American Holly The situation in regard to our native holly is now such that there are only two choices open to the American people: We can either stop immediately all use of it in Christmas decorations, and thus save it for all time, or we oan continue using it for two or throe years longer, and then be forced to discontinue its use because of its complete extinction. The holly is disappearing, not because of any lack of appreciation for its beauty and symbolism, but simply because its all too numerous friends do not understand the situation that has been brought about by' their unthinking enthusiasm in gathering Yuletide evergreens. It is the duty of those who know the facts to present them to the general public, and to present them so clearly and persistently that no one can claim ignort-nce as an excuse for further vandalism. T~is is the purpose of the Outdoor Nature Club's holly campaign, in which other societies through America will be asked to cooperate. The state tree of Texas is the pecan, and the bliiebonnet is our state flower, but up to the present time, we have not chosen a state bird. We have a most amazing variety to choose from, but our Dixie troubadour should "be the final choice. He is a friendly fellow, a good fighter when the occasion arises, a world-famed, singer, and he is garbed in the soft gray so dear; to the memories of the South.
