Transcript The Zephyr #4 Our Report Mr. T. Gilbert Pearson, President of the National Association of Audubon Societies, has written complimenting the olub upon its report for the past year, which will be published.'in the Association's official organ, ''Bird-Lore", along with the reports of other affiliated societies throughout the country. This report, necessarily brie'f, wad as f ollow.s: "With an enthusiastic membership, and R. A. Sell, an experienced naturalist, as its president, the club has made remarkable progress in its first year of existence, Houston newspapers have given the club column after column of publicity in all its work. Interesting programs on nature study and conservation have featured the monthly meetings. Among the speakers to address the club was Dr. A. A. Allen, of Cornell University, whose talk on the birds of South Texas aroused much interest and enthusiasm. The "club's program of hikes and monthly automobile' trips to places of particular interest was mimeographed and distributed to all members, and these trips were entirely successful, both as to attendance and benefit derived by those participating. The club cooperated with the Harris County library in a wild flower identification contest, and in addition to giving eleven prizes to the' young people most.successful in identifying wild flowers sent a letter to each contested requesting his support in plans to arouse wide-spread interest In the preservation of the native flora of Texas. Among the interesting records and data being accumulated by the club is a collection of all pictures taken by members individually, as well as on the offici-1 field trips, and this will form a pictorial history of the club and its work. At the annual meeting of the club, officers were elected and plans drawn up for the neart year's'activities. L. H. Daingerfield, a past president-of the- Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club, was chosen to1lead as our president for the year, and committees were appointed for the season'- work, which will include a strong campaign in the fall for the preservation of our beautiful, symbolic holly tree, a campaign to have a wild life preserve sot apart in' Houston's new fifteen hundred acre park, and a bird-house campaign in the spring. Tiia program of field trips and meetings will be better than ever, and all committees promise that the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston will send in next year a report that will be representative of the nature lovers and conservationists of the lone Star State and its growing Gulf Port City." Indefinitely Postponed It has been suggested that a contest be held to find out which member of the. club is the most expert at walking through thickets of bull-nettle, getting through barb-wire fences, and crossing over streams on slippery logs. Probably one of the ladies would win. No date has been set for the contest. All motion picture rights will be reserved. .The only way to join the American Tree Association is to plant a tree and register it with the Association, #1214 16th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. Have you joined? If you have'nt been on any of the field trips, don't fail to join in the next one. Remember,, this is the Outdoor Nature Club. ;.\?jP»
