It is not at a'll c'lear as.yet whether Tucsonans--and others--will be able to move about as freely as thi:y hive neretofore. The new situation could make a difference in TCBS- activities. Among other things, it could cause people to have a greater interest in their cacrus windows, their cactus greenhouses, their cactus yards, their cactus garqens, and their cactus state. it could cause our monthly meetings and oth6r functi ons to serve a stronger and a more important ro'lil. As the new,year begins, let r!g.cali _attention to TCBS objectives as stated tn our by Laws. they are: (, 1,1 t0 f unction continuously in the study of cact.i and native flora, (2) to further the protection of cacti and native ftoru of Arizona, (3) to sponsor a botanical garden in pima county near Tucson, 9la (+) to make p'lanti!9 of cacti and nitive f'lora in other suitabl. piu..s. These, of-course, could be changed, but they impress me as being ent.iiety adequate for the peii od i mmedi ately ahead. 0ur opportunity to enjoy native '!t flora remains great, and the need to protect algo.remains great. There are things to be done and people are voiun.uering their imagination and their efforts. Fine leadershib ii developing in committee groups. They deserve congratu'lations and encouragement at tie same time. Paul S. Henshaw, Pneaident 1974 Dr. PauI S. Henshaw is the author of a Xecently publlshed!66p,,.the EvoIutionary Imperative". It is a thoughtful dlscussion of the problens facing man and the worrd today, and it proposes solutions to these problems. Mrs. Lois clarke has donated a copy of thi.s book to the Cactus Library for the use of ali its members.

4 4. CACTUS CAPITAL CHATTER SecondCurtai tt WAS A magnificent spring show. Early in February, blue ribbons of lupine appeared along the roadways, putting th sky to shame. Soon the chilly shoulders of all the highways were wrapped in colorful scented scarves - yellow and purple, pink, white, lavender. Bv March. hillsides were a-shimmer with the s;illed treasure of golden poppies. Each spring-loaded day expos d yet another vein. Every gulch ran riot with the unpannable gold. Incredibly, after six reticent years, the Joshua tree made blossom-promises as fragile and translucent as ftne painted china; and', in the following weeks, they fulfilled their word, sending bold flowers out to capture the heart of every trespasser in the desert. Act One stretched into May, into June' Palo Verde foamed and frothed across the desert as buds burst like bath bubbles, obscuring the lower vegetation beneath qreat golden clouds. The scratchy dishpan [ands-of the ocotillo raked the tender underbelly of the sky with crimson nails. It was all there. The plastic perfection of the clear-eyed pricklepoppy. Fiery globules of orange mallow: Roasting marshmallows on a stick bursting into sudden flame. Vehet antlers of the staghorn cholla, maroon to cherry red to cerise. Yellow staves of the barrel cactus. Belated Eastbr bonnets, glossy white, jaunty on every saguato head. Citrine cups waiting to frll with the fruit of the prickly pear that in a few months will produce the life-saving nectar so dear to the resourceful Papago. Agaves: green, orange and yellow pincushions mounted on a recycled wrought iroh stand, like a dreamer's dream of old junk refashioned into art and sold at mind-clotting prices. Creamy yuccas, heady with their own graceful beauty. When, the old-timers ask, was there ever such a show as this? Yet I remember a September, not so long ago, when the Coconino forest floor was carpeted in butter-soft yellow. As we drove north, bluebell skies flattened to steel, as if over the open range they could no longer sustain the rich color they had bled from the blue-green needles of the pine forests. I remember gentle valleys and high terraces of coral and moonstone and silver, of faded turquoise, opal and gold, with splashes of ltre where a shower of amethyst had magically transformed weeds into asters and thistles into magenta flames. The forest thinned. black road torn from a ragged yellow cloih of sunfiowers, black eyes as bright as a cricket's chirp joined by a chorus of rainbow colors. Beyond the Coconino, a desolate kind ofgrandeur: sage and red dirt and stunted evergreens, squatting defiantly like fat dwarfs as we dropped towards Winslow's lower elevation White-faced cows as stolid and contented as cans of milk. A single whitc cloud, sailing on the horizon like the silvered negative of Shiorock. A freeway blur from Winslow to Flagstaff, and then the welcome swapplng for a gentler pace. From Flagstaff to the Sunset Crater road, we thrilled to a floral tapestry Minerva herself might have woven' with thread of sunlight and jade, hoarfrost and champagne.' Bonita campground: the perfume of crackling pine logs in a blaze of orange and blue-tonsued flame while Sunset Crat r slept in -darkness somewhere beyond, as it had slept 905 years of nights. The lonely baying of nighttime predators, the confused OUTDOORARIZONA / AUGUST 1973

THE LAND PLANNING COMMITTEE OF THE ADVISORY COMMISSION ON ARIZONA ENVIRONMENT recommended on January 19, I 973 "That the Advi sory Commi ssi on on Ari zona Environment support the existing Native Plant Law as revised by the 'l 972 session of the Arizona State Legislature. It'is the opinion of the Commission that the law is adequate and serves its intent to protect various native plants as listed in the law. Furthermore, recoqnizinq that, by law, the Arizona Commission of Agriculture and Horticultuie must irota a!ub1 ii hearing each year to establ ish reguiations to implementl the Native Plant Law, and in this manner any Arizona citizen may give testimony concerning h.i.s beliefs and opinions, the Advisory Commission on Arizona Environment finds -that the above law anq procedures are adequate and shoul d not be rev i se0 until thoroughly tested and revi ehed.
