Tex, (AP)— The Big Thicket is an III- dcfincd botanical crossroads In Southeast Texas— possibly the ttnal stronghold at the panther, the boar and the ivory billed woodpecker in this porl of the v.orld. Ask one thicket resident where the original Big Thicket was and he might answer, "40,000 acres centered around Saratoga." Yet another might say the thicket was once 1.5 million acres, too miles long and SO miles wide. At this' time, no more exact definition can be made for the proposed Big Thicket National Park which will cover anywhere from 35,000 to 191,000 acres, according to which proposwl plan, if any, is followed, The first strong push to make a national park out of a part of the thicket began in t%1 with the formation of the Big Thicket Association Mrs. Dolly Hoffman, a charter member and a member of the board of the association, is a lifetime resident of the thicket area. She recalled that the association originally decided to request 3S*,000 acres for a rational park but hoped to have more added later, That original urganaalioo consisted solely of people who lived in and near the thicket and had a personal interest in what transpired here, Mrs. Hoffman said.
