VOLUME XI NO. 12
Can man continue to impose his Iron ^
^ will on our lands with the intolerable attitude that can destroy ^
^ other species. He can,and perhaps
he will. The late Aldo Leopold, *
* famed naturalist, summed up man's
Inability to live in harmony with *
* other species by sayings "Man is
the only creature on earth who *
* knowlingly and wilfully befouls and
denudes his own environment in the *
i, name of progress." Norrel Wallace,
Texas Game & Fish Comm. mag. Feb, 63
