Transcript VOLUME a.a, No. 9 J anuary, 19/2 You did not come with spring this year. But another's settled here.,.in your own tree. Say was there somewhere in the flight itush of owl on gusty night...too quick to flee, 1 '*• hawk burst down the blinding blue; Was it hawk or owl changed you— Or was it me? >Jill- am E. ;.ahoney PUBLISHED BY TH- ORNITHOLOGY GUP UP, OUTDOOU NATUiil. CLUB, HOUSTON, TSXAS A CHALLENGE! The letter from Joe K. Heiser, Jr., printed below, puts us to a test as to whether we are real conservationists. "Every year, at the holiday season, some other O.N.C. "youngsters" join me In preparing arrangements of seasonal fruits and foliage for delivery to old-timers unable to enjoy a ramble afield. Our bouquets this time lacked many of th© colorful items abundant in other years—fruits of the red haws, viburnums, yupon, cherry laurel, beautyoerry, Indian cherry, dogwood, chinquapin, Indian currant, Georgia holly, huckleberry, buckthorn and other speeies usually available on my own little natural wonderland in San Jacinto county. Unfavorable weather at a crucial time has caused a substantial crop failure in native fruits and nuts over much of our area. What about the thousands of winter resident birds thus faced with famine at our very doorstep? .* easures to relieve this kind of situation are hard to implement because there is In tne Outdoor mature Club no "study group" which would enable interested members of tne present groups—and others identified with no special nature hobby—to work together on numerous projects tor the benefit of our endangered native plants, birds, and smal1 mammals and reptile s. If these little people of the wild have no helpful neighbors in the O.N.C, to whom can they turn for the aid they need and deserve? For those who have ideas on this subject, now is a good time to speak out." COST PROBI-tK by T. Paul Jones, Chairman of Cost Committee At the reoruary CG meeting tjiere will be more discussion and, hopefully, a decision on now to meet, or lower, the rising costs of the Spoonbill. 4s reported at the becember meeting, a mailed copy whieh cost approximately 23? in 1969 cost approximately 34? this year, and under the present set-up, is expected to cost more next year. Various solutions to cutting costs nave been suggested and explored, and Sarah Gordon asked at the December meeting for all members to think about it and bring their ideas on the subject to th© February meeting, COMMENTARY ON HUNTING IN WILDLIFE REFUGES bv Kiss Hazel _. Green "I'd like to go on record with the OG as being unalterably opposed to hunting and killing on our wildlife Hefuges. This opinion hns beer expressed many times over the past years to the organizations of which 1 =m a member and to the Department of th© Interior, Kr, Howard Dodgen, Dr, Cottam, etc., especially in- th© ease of the Aransas Wildlife Refuge, Hunting and killing in our Refuges is not compatible with the purpose for which a refuge is established in the first place. It is bad psychology from a public opinion standpoint, people who nave desirable lands and might consider giving it for refuge purposes would, in my opinion, change their minds quickly if they thought it would ever be allowed for anything else than ? "refuge and sanetuary" for wildlife. I know 1 would. If an over-abundance of any- species does occur, they eould be trapped and moved to otner locations where they have been extirpated or ar© low in numbers. This statement also
