Transcript -3- caused muoh discussion. It was dark and had a rather broad but sharply demarcated black subterminal band on the tail visible above and below, dusky underwings with dark patches at the "wrists." Its identity lay between a Rough-legged and White-tailed "immature," and the underwing pattern being muoh more like the illustration for the Rough-leg. However, the bird did not hover and did not appear to have the "leggings" of the Rough-leg when adjusting for takeoff or again in flight but appeared to show bright yellow shanks. Regretably we could not reach the lake but could see white pelicans but very few duck on it. Duck were noticeably absent all day. Having had a very successful day, thanks to the Davis' efforts we returned home to learn that the Hoffmans who missed us at the start had found a King Rail and a Harlan's Hawk in the same area. Late report of those who stayed with the "hawk of dubious identity" by the lake state that it gave long periods of hovering after we left to support convincingly the Rough-leg identity. Dirk Hagemeyer reports that he saw a Wood Duck at Lake Jackson on the way home. The area clearly needs to be covered more frequently and should be good for duck later in the winter. The following participated in the field trip: Mr. and Mrs. Levy Davis (Leaders), Ann and Harry Brister, Nell Ray, J. C. and Ruth Faris,, Sarah Gordon, Mary and Jack Gillette, Melba Drake, Don and Marian Washburn, Norma Oates, Frank and Mary Belle Kokesh, Ed and Marion Taylor, Hyrum and Nora Strong, Grace Hayes, Carol and Dan Hayes, Lillian Taylor, Bud Anderson, Wallace C. Mebane, Jr., Dirk Hagemeyer, David Marrack, Paul Marrack, Marilyn Crane, Dick and Orbie Miller, Mabel M. Smith, Ruth Triohel. WE HAVE ALWAYS HEARD OF A RINGTAIL TOOTER, BUT HOW WE HAVE A RINGTAIL TUTOR! 1 The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's ringtail has now been named after some 43,364 fifth grade school children had a go at submitting the name. The five-man judging committee selected the name "Tutor" because of the role the small furry animal will play in the conservation education program for the children of the State. Seven youngsters from widely separated areas throughout the State submitted the winning name. To break this tie, Department officials held a game of "Ringtail Roulette" where Tutor Ringtail actually chose the winner. From the center of a six-foot circle on the floor of the photographic studio at Austin headquarters, Tutor Ringtail scampered across the entry submitted by Emma Hypolite, a fifth grader at Pease Elementary School in Midland. She lives at 1206 Chestnut Lane, Midland, and is the daughter of Sergeant and Mrs. Clifton Hypolite. Her father is serving in Vietnam with the U. S. Army engineers. As the official winner in the Name-the-Ringtail Contest, Miss Hypolite will receive approximately $400 in outdoor recreation equipment donated by Texas merchants, be named game management officer in her hometown for one day, be presented a citation by the Governor in Austin, all-ejbense-paid visit to Six Flags Over Texas and a five-year subscription of the TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE magazine.
