Supply Bill
All But Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Civil Air Patrol Supply Bill (HR
6237) came closer this year to becoming law than ever before!
The measure, which would provide a limited amount of direct
support to Civil Air Patrol, received favorable review this year
in the House Armed Services Committee. It passed the House
of Representatives on Oct. 11 -- four days before the 95th
Congress adjourned -- without a dissenting vote.

around the communications
room -- just listening.
They were in contact with
groups throughout the state as
well as ground teams. A plane

an actual REDCAP? Oh, the
excitement! This was for me.
I registered for Northeast

August my husband, daughter
and I were off to school at
Kutztown State College, It was
wonderful! My fellow basic
"NERCs" and I were superb on
the simulator, sending and
receiving messages, keeping
logs and learning pro words. We
used the correct procedures for
transmitting and kept our
conversations to the barest

My job was to keep the radio

would switch and I'd get my
chance to transmit and receive
Everything went swimmingly

After several tries and a land

drove out to the repeater and
found it had been vandalized.
While he was waiting for the
police and then repairing the
repeater, I was left to cope.

Traffic was coming through on
26.620 from the flightline and
ground teams.
Messages were coming
through by land line.
Some darn truckers in New

Hooray! The repeater is fixed.

With the purchase of a Radio

MAXWELL AFB, Ala. -Pending approval by the
December NEC, Civil Air Patrol
regions will conduct six regular
and two special Region Staff
Colleges (RSC) and a National
Staff College (NSC) in 1979. It is
indicative of the widespread and
increasing interest the senior
training program enjoys in most
regions that these courses have
caught on so well.
The RSC-NSC program
reflects the need to bring
management and communications training within
reach of a maximum number of
CAP members. In concert with
the new squadron leadership
school (SLS) which are generally held at wing level, these
schools help to assure that unit
leaders know their jobs and
know how to manage them.
The RCS is designed for CAP
officers at squadron level and
above. Attendance preference is

given to those who have attended
an SLS. The NSC was developed
as a course for wing and region
command and staff officers.
Graduates of these schools
have been emphatic in observing
that the RSC and NSC help them,
not only in their CAP duties but
also in their daily pursuits. The
quality has been such that companies have given time off for
their CAP member-employees to

The Southeast Region plans a
special staff college for the
Puerto Rico Wing May 27-June 2
at San Juan, Puerto Rico. Since
airlift is not available, Puerto
Rican members have been unable to attend the regular Region
Staff Colleges.
The National Staff College will
convene in 1979 again at Maxwell
AFB, Ala. The date is not firm at
this time because of a billeting
)roblem here. The school is ex-

pected to run in late June or early July. This is the most advanced of the SLS, RCS, NSC
progression, offering, in addition
to further instruction in
management, leadership and
communications, an opportunity
to examine the global military
and political environment and
their effects upon the United
States and Civil Air Patrol.
Both the RSC and NSC are integral parts of the CAP awards
program, and count toward the
WEEP, but their true worth is to
the individual CAP members
who learn to manage their units
and day-to-day endeavors better
as a result of having attended.

Very Enthusiastic

EDUCATION DISCUSSION -- Gen. Gardner and Gen. Casaday, second and third from left,

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -"This is one of the most
enthusiastic groups I've seen,"
Air Force Brig. Gen. Paul E.
Gardner, CAP executive director, said in describing members
of the Puerto Rico Wing.
He and Brig. Gen. Thomas C.
Casaday, CAP national commander, had just returned from
a recent trip to CAP's Spanishspeaking wing. They also visited
the Civil Air Patrol unit on St.
Thomas, Virgin Islands, where
1st Lt. Dorothy Edward is
squadron commander.
In speaking of the enthusiasm
of the CAP members in Puerto
Rico, Gen. Gardner pointed out
that the Civil Air Patrol Cadet
Program there is a part of the
school system but on a voluntary
basis. The wing has more cadets
than any other.
Gen. Casaday joined his praise
by pointing out the good
relations existing between CAP
and various military units in
Puerto Rico. In particular, he
noted that U.S. Coast Guard

Capt. William King is very
aware of CAP's potential help in
search and rescue.
Also, he said, the Puerto Rico
Wing commander, Lt. Col. Hector Aponte-Pagan, enjoys close
contact with the Air National
Guard. Other military officials
are also aware of CAP activities,
he added.
The two CAP leaders discussed problems in Aerospace
Education with the Commonwealth Secretary and Assistant Secretary for Education,
Carlos Chardon and Mrs.
Virginia Belaval.
They also reviewed problems
and needs of the wing. One in
particular that Gen. Gardner
noted is the differences caused
in part by the Spanish language
that is spoken. Nonetheless, the
Puerto Rican cadets are highly
competitive in national CAP
events, and every effort is being
made to insure that ethnic
background is considered for
equitable comparisons of performance.

Air. Force Museum Foundation Looking For 'Friends'
Ohio -- They come here in
droves. People from
everywhere. Everyday in the
year (except Christmas Day).
Approximately one million a
What they come to see is a
fascinating museum -fascinating, that is, if you have
an affinity for airplanes. The
museum is, of course, the Air
Force Museum, located on this
double-barreled Air Force installation.
And the millions who come include many Civil Air Patrol
members. The museum is especially interesting to CAP
members since Civil Air Patrol,
an aviation oriented
organization, is represented in
the Museum with a small display
and a fully restored CAP aircraft of World War II days.
The Museum originated in 1923
at McCook Field, near Dayton,
Ohio, the site of this Air Force

base, with an inform~ exhibit of
World War I aircraft. Today, the
collection has grown to more
than 150 aircraft and missiles,
plus a multitude of items of aviation historical interest.
The Museum is under the
operational control of the commander of the Air Force
Logistics Command. Aircraft
are exhibited indoors both in the
main museum and in a
supplementary facility across
the flight line at Wright Field.
The old planes attract a great
deal of attention, but the
Museum is not just a warehouse
for antique aircraft. The basic
purpose is to portray the history
of the United States Air Force
and, in addition to aircraft, there
are many exhibits of aviation
hardware, documents,
photographs and personal
A stroll through the Museum is
actually a stroll through the
history of aviation, in

chronological order, beginning
with man's earliest interest in
flight, on through the early years
of aviation and to the present
with its space exploration. Since
it is an Air Force Museum, the
emphasis, of course, is on Air
Force history.
The Civil .kit Patrol exhibit at
the Museum includes CAP's
"Hall of Honor," (see photo in
November issue of Civil Air
Patrol News), a selection of
historic photographs, and an exhibit of early Uniforms and miscellaneous items. The restored
CAP aircraft is a Piper J3. A
photo of this aircraft was
published in the October issue of
Civil Air Patrol News. A CAP
Museum effort is under way at
present to improve and expand
this display.
Despite the fact that it is the
"Official U.S. Air Force
Museum," the Air Force has an
"angel" that provides funds for
activities where government
funds aren't available. The Air

ANTIQUE AIRCRAFT -- One of the old aircrafts on display in the Air Force Museum is this
Douglas World Cruiser, the ',New Orleans." This was one of the first airplanes in the world to
circumnavigate the globe by air and it was designed and built for that purpose. Four planes of
this design started from Seattle, Wash:, in April 1924. Two of them, including this one,
completed the flight in September 1924.

Force provides the staff and
pays for utilities, building
maintenance and general
operations. Federal funds didn't
have to pay for the building that
the Museum occupies at present.
That's where the "angel", the
Air Force Museum Foundation,
came in. This non-profit
organization was founded in 1960
by a group of citizens in Dayton,
Ohio, who were interested in
furthering the Museum's
Over the years, the Museum
has occupied a number of
homes. The present one, completed in 1971 at a cost of $6
million, was paid for by the foundation with funds collected from
individual donors -- not by the
Air Force.
The building was dedicated
that year with President Nixon
accepting the building on behalf
of the Air Force. In 1976, a
million dollar addition was also
funded by the foundation.
Today, the foundation, through
its "Friends of the U.S. Air
Force Museum" membership
program, is offering an opportunity to anyone interested in the
Museum to help support its
According to Robert S.
Oelman, Museum Foundation
chairman, the "Friends"
membership will provide the
Museum with an on-going closeknit nucleus of individuals and
organizations who are interested
in the continuing day-to-day
operation of the Museum.
At a cost of only $10 per year,
the membership offers a number
of benefits to those who join,
Oelman says. Aroong these are 20
per cent discounts in the
Museum gift shop, 10 per cent
discounts in the bookstore,
special events at the Museum,
and a newsletter to keep
members updated on Museum
activities. In addition, each new
member also receives the
Museum's 100-page aircraft picture book and a current Museum

All members are given a personalized membership certificate upon joining, plus a
current membership card each
year at renewal time. New items
will also be offered each year as
an incentive to keep
memberships current.
The "Friends of the U.S. Air
Force Museum" concept started
with a study of the Smithsonian
Institution's "Associates"
program and is currently
patterned after that activity.
The "Friends" program seeks to
raise funds for the Museum
Foundation to continue its
philanthropic work. But it~also
seeks to create an organization
of individuals who want to be a
little closer to the Museum and
what it is doing.

3,000 Volunteers Aid
In Search For Boy
WEBSTER, Mass. -- An estimated 3,000 volunteers joined
Civil Air Patrol, police and other
groups in a recent massive
ground search for a four-yearold boy, who was missing from
his play area, according to Capt..
Donald P. Fairbanks of the
Massachusetts Wing. The search

CAP volunteers from two
other wings, Connecticut and

Massachusetts in the search.
"The cooperation of everyone
working in the search has been
wonderful," said Col. Raymond

were tired, overworked, exhausted, but time was the most
pressing element. The CAP

dusk, but it still wasn't enough
because we didn't find him."
Land searchers and water

estimated 10-square-mile area.
This search and rescue mission
is believed to be the largest of its
kind in New England's history,
said Fairbanks.

of regulations and manuals will be reduced to one
copy to each Sector, Group, Squadron, and Flight.
If a unit experiences a problem with this distribution, additional copies may be obtained by requisitioning on CAP Form 8 with sufficient justification. Also, requisitions for blank forms will be
monitored and in some cases the quantity ordered
may be reduced if the amount seems excessive.
Each individual in CAP is encouraged to conserve publications and blank forms so that this
headquarters can continue providing this service
at no cost to the unit. Any unit may reproduce
additional copies of any publication or form locally as long as no changes or alterations are made.

Confessions Of An Official
Mission Information Officer
Story and Photos by
Minnesota Wing
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- It was nearly
midnight when we arrived in Redwood Falls,
Minn., which had been established as our
south base for the Minnesota Wing's fall
search and rescue exercise.
As a squadron information officer, I came
along to take some "action shots" of our
cadets. But when assignments were handed
out, I found myself appointed as the official
mission information officer.
Having just completed the seminar for information officers, I was convinced that I
knew everything. Of course, my interest in
"news" at this time had not extended beyond
the level of my squadron, which therefore
left me a little in the fog as to what my functions and responsibilities were to be during
the mission.
"If only I had brought my information officer's handbook along!" I thought with
Morning came fast, and at 6:25 a.m. the
mission was operational. It was a beautiful
day, sunny sky with just a few puffy clouds
hanging above -- not necessarily a pilot's
delight -- but just perfect for a
photographer. Anxiously I loaded my
"Have you called the news media yet?"
the Air Force inspector asked.
"No, sir," I answered a little stunned. "I
will right now," I added quickly as I hurried
away to find a phone.
The airport office was only a few hundred
yards away from the hangar. I remembered
that there was a pay phone there because I
spent the night sleeping right under it.
Looking for the phone number of a radio
station is rather a time consuming task. Is it
under "K" maybe, or perhaps "W"? I was
about to give up when a cadet familiar with
the area came to my rescue.
With the phone number in my possession, I
readied myself for the call Oops! I needed a









dime first. I searched the pockets of my
fatigues -- but to no avail.
When I finally managed to get some
change, again with the help of a cadet, I discovered to my horror that the phone was out
of order. "What did I do to deserve this?"
But all was not lost. Upstairs from the airport office was an FAA station. A most helpful man saved me from my dilemma.
First the radio station. They would have
liked to have been informed earlier and were
therefore not able to provide coverage.
When the newspaper office did not answer,
which is not unusual early on a Saturday
morning, the man from the FAA provided
me with the name and home number of the
editor of the Redwood Gazette.
A very friendly lady named Barb Ross
listened to my request. "I really would like
to come out there," she replied courteously,
"but I've got to go to a wedding."
I was about to resign myself again to the
fact that this was just not my day, when I
had an idea. "Would you like me to send you
some pictures and perhaps an outline as to
what is going on here today?" I asked
"That would be wonderful if you could,"
she said.
As I hung up, my mind began to work. I
needed good action shots. Not just souvenir
snapshots or group shots, but good pictures
that told a story.
I was just completing my second roll of
film, when a cadet came toward me. "They
are looking for you, ma'am," he called out
and pointed toward the hangar.
"They, who?" I wanted to know.
"I don't know, ma'am. Some pilots, I
An officer of my squadron led me to the
people who had asked for me. "We are closing in on the target and would like you to
take some pictures from the air, if we can
find it," one of them said.
My heart dropped into my combat boots.
"Me? Fly?" I stammered. I get sick on a 747,

It was either my unexcelled dedication to
my newly acquired job as mission information officer, or the charming persuasion of
the pilot, that made me say "yes", for I
can't think of any other reason why I would
submit myself to an adventure that I knew
would leave me to resort to one of those
"sick bags". After warning the pilot of such
a possibility, I buckled myself down. And
just to distract my mind -- since it was all in
my head, as I was repeatedly told I loaded
my camera during take-off. When I looked
up, we were already at our cruising altitude.
"By the way," the pilot said with a smile
as he turned around to look at me in the back
seat. "It's going to be a little bumpy up here
"I can tell!" I swallowed, as I could
already feel the first signs of that condition
so familiar to me. After 10 transatlantic
flights and two trips across the Pacific, plus
numerous cross-country flights, I had my
share of "air discomforts."
"Hang in there!" I told myself. "Take a
deep breath and it'll go away!" I tried to
convince myself.
When we finally landed, I staggered as
quickly as I could toward a garbage bin to
dispose of a certain plastic bag that contained "proof" that it was not in my head -- it
was all in my stomach. How can I convince
With a still unused roll of film in my
camera, I retreated to the airport office
where I slid my air mattress halfway under
a table, partially to conserve space because
the office was swarming with people, but
mostly to stay out of sight.
Before I submerged myself, my head
hidden beneath my field jacket to begin my
process of recuperation, I instructed the
cadet standing nearest to me. "If anyone
asks for me, tell them I'm in sick bay."

It is early December. The temperature is approximately 10
decrees and it is snowing heavily. It is almost dark as you return
from a day of cutting wood. The mountain road you are travelling is
infrequently used. As you round a curve, you lose control of your
vehicle and it comes to rest in a ditch. You are uninjured, but your
vehicle is immovable, though the enl~ine is still running. You know
that you are six or seven miles from any assistance.
A. Keep the motor running with the heater on, and wait for help?
H. Shut down the motor, raise the hood, tie a handkerchief or rag
tothe door, and stay with the vehicle until assistance comes?
C. Assess the situation, and then determine in which direction
assistance is closest, and then proceed in that direction?
D. Get out of the vehicle, construct a fire from low hanging, dead
branches and construct a shelter either from natural materials, or
material from the vehicle?
According to survival experts at the Air Force Academy,
Alternative D. is the most logical choice. A fire should be
constructed first to provide light and warmth. Gather the low
hanging dead branches for they usually will ignite with ease.
Construct some type of covering or shelter to keep the snow off you.
Keep the fire burning all night for warmth, and then seek
assistance the next morning.
Alternative A. seems good at first, but due to carbon monoxide
poisoning from the exhaust, it is a very dangerous procedure.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is deceptive, and you will not notice its
presence; you merely fall off to sleep and will probably never wake
Trying a rag or handkerchief to the door and raising the hood in
Alternative B. is a good procedure, but you do not stay in the
vehicle. Since the vehicle is constructed of metal, it will turn into
an improvised refrigerator.
Alternative C. is not a good practice. Walking in a 10 degree
temperature with heavy snowfall would be difficult even for a
person who is in remarkable physical condition. For the average
person, fatigue and hypothermia would set in before they reached
help. The eventual end would be death.

Cadet Recognized For Saving Life
BALTIMORE, Md. -- Cadet
Linda McWilliams of the
Linthicum Cadet Sq. (Maryland
Wing) has received a certificate
of recognition at commander's
call for saving the life of a
neighbor who had fallen through
a glass window.
McWilliams heard the crash of
breaking glass from a house
across the street from her home
Oct. 7 and ran over to see what
had happened. She found that the
neighbor's daughter had fallen
through a jalousied glass door
and was bleeding profusely.
The girl's mother was
incapacitated with shock and
lack of training. McWilliams

and called an ambulance to take
the girl to a nearby hospital for
treatment, where she had over
40 stitches. She stayed with the

girl's parents during the time
she was in treatment.

Computer Programs Aid Searches
By Lt. Col. ROBERT
This article is written for two
groups of people. One group is
involved in search activities
such as looking for lost persons,
crashed aircraft, or other missing people or things. This group
has a humanitarian interest in
saving lives, and reducing the
suffering of those who are lost.
The second group is interested
in using computers (micros,
minis, and up) to their utmost.
This group is constantly exploring ways in which the computer
can be used. There seems to be
no limit to what can be done,
given the time and money to
develop the appropriate
software and hardware. In their
quest to challenge their
machines, the computer buffs
develop more involved games
and even more complicated
I would like to get these two
groups together because each
can benefit from the other. Our
search group needs to keep accurate records of available

resources, which resources are
used, which areas have been
searched, and how effective the
search has been. These, of
course, are simple tasks for the
The computer could also be
used for determining the areas
with the highest probability of
containing the subject, and for
determining an optimal search
plan for using available
resources. These are much more
challenging tasks, but initial
programs are available and additional programs could be
The merging of the two groups
can have a significant advantage
for the computer group also. The
best benefit will be to get computer groups involved with a truly meaningful application for
their computers. Using the computer to assist in search planning
will be more rewarding than any
game; if you win, you may save
a life! Additional benefits would
be the challenges of developing
and improving sophisticated
programs to assist search
management personnel.
To get you started, a number

of programs have been
developed and listings are
available free, or at the cost of
reproduction and mailing.

Spaatz Award
Colo. -- Cadet John L.
Groszewski of the Falcon Comp.
Sq. (Missouri Wing) received the
Gen. Carl A. Spaatz Award in
recent ceremonies from Brig.
Gen. Thomas C. Richards, commandant of cadets.
Groszewski, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Leo Groszewski of Saint
Louis, Mo., has been a CAP
member since 1974.
A second year student at the
Academy, Groszewski is majoring in Physics and Economics
and has a 3.56 grade point
average. He hopes to do
graduate work at a military
medical facility.

The next question is how do we
get the two groups together? The
most direct way is to seek out
members of the opposite group
and show them this article. If
you are from the search group,
ask for support. If you are with
the computer group, offer your
assistance, and possibly the support of your computer club, to
the search group.
Where will you find members
of each group? Finding computer groups is easy if there is a
computer store in town. If not,
you can contact schools and
businesses using computers, or
maybe even make a public service announcement requesting
interested persons to contact
y o u . To fi n d t h e s e a r c h
volunteers, you can start by contacting the local Civil Air Patrol
unit. CAP prosecutes all types of
search missions but specializes
in searches for downed aircraft
and searches for activated
electronic locator transmitters
( E LT ) ( a r a d i o t r a n s m i t t e r
which is activated when an aircraft crashes). You can usually
find CAP personnel by contacting personnel at the local

airports. To find other local
search personnel, ask the sheriff
for contacts in units active in
ground search for missing
children, hunters, etc.
I stress local contact because
you will have to work very closely with one another when getting
started. Together you will have
to work out the details of what is
needed and what can be offered.
There will be a need for each
group to educate the other concerning the problems and
limitations of their respective
organizations. I am certain that
the relationship can be a
beneficial one if both sides keep
in mind that the end result is to
save a life. Good luck!
Following is a list of computer programs currently
available for micro computers.
Most of the advanced programs
require at least the equivalent of
the TRS-80 Level II basic and up
to 35K of user memory. I would
like to give credit to Maj. Bob
G r e g o r y, G r o u p 3 0 , P e n n sylvania Wing, for his support in
preparing the programs.
(A-list of programs wi|l be
published next month. )

Man's First Aid Training Helps Self
What would you do if you are
badly injured? What have you
seen others do when accidents
occur? Do many curiosity
seekers crowd the scene and
offer nothing? Do some people
want to help, but don't know
how? How about those who know
how to help, but can't because
they are in shock themselves?
First-aid training costs little
or nothing, and the benefits far
.... otrtshadow the costs. The following narrative describes one person's encounter with a "no time
for games" situation. As you
read the account, consider your
training and ability to aid your
family, friends, yourself, and
others in a similar situation.
"The window was slightly
ajar. I grabbed the lever of the
open window with my- right
hand and put my left hand along
the frame of the steel casement
window and pushed forward and
"The window and the frame

attached to the house must have
been out of alignment because I
remember hitting the pin that
the lever should have gone
around and the window coming
back at me. The next thing I
remember is looking at my hand
and seeing a three-inch open
wound on my forearm and the insides of my arm hanging out.
"I looked a hit higher and discovered that I had a piece of
glass 10 inches long and one inch
wide imbedded in my hand. It
had entered slightly above the
wrist and came out below the
"My first impulse was to grab
the glass and pull it out, but then
I thought that if I did it could
make matters worse and cut
something else inside. I then
noticed a lot of blood squirting
from the incision on my arm and
realized that I'd better give
myself some first aid.
"I thought, with that much
blood flowing fast and flying
high, that I'd better stay calm. I

walked from the enclosed family
room to the outer basement and
saw a necktie on the table. I immediately tied it around my arm
at the first joint between the
damaged part and my heart. I
then found a stake I was going to
use to brace tomato vines, broke
it and placed it in the necktie and
tightened the tourniquet.
-"It was funny how things were
running through my mind. I
remember reading the first aid
portion of my promotion fitness
examination study material.
When you study first aid you
always think about how you are
going to treat someone else
when confronted with an injury.
Try thinking about yourself as
the victim.
"I found a laundry basket,
grabbed a clean undershirt and
tied it around the open wound on
the forearm. My arm wasn't
feeling too good now, but at least
I had slowed the bleeding. My
wife had seen what happened
from outside and called an ambulance. I noticed that I was
breathing quite fast and heavy
and decided I'd better lie down
and try to relax or that I'd
possibly go into shock.
Some neighbors had heard the
glass shatter and finally came
around to investigate but after
seeing the glass through the
palm of my hand, they quickly
departed. I'm sure if I would
have confronted them with the
open wounds, they would have
been no help because everyone
had a different remedy.
"During this time, I released
the pressure on the tourniquet
and let the blood flow for a while
to restore circulation to the
damaged area. It seemed like
forever before the ambulance
arrived and I was off on a wild
ride to the hospital.
"It took about two hours in
surgery and 60 stitches inside
and out to fix my arm. The incision on the palm of the hand continues around the thumb almost
to the index finger. An area
one-half inch below the wrist to
the three-inch incision is without
feeling and the thumb muscles
were very badly damaged and
cause considerable pain even

for recruiting a new member and that

MAXWELL AFB, Ala. -- Civil Air Patrol's mammoth ~
nationwide recruiting campaign was scheduled to begin
on Jan. 1,1979.
Then it was moved forward so that it began officially
on Nov. 1, 1978, It will still end on June 30 of next year,
But the Florida Wing did not wait for word from
National Headquarters to begin a recruiting campaign.
Aware of the need to enlist more members in Civil Air
Patrol, Col. Richard Leali Sr., the Florida Wing commander, started a statewide recruiting drive soon after
he became wing commander in mid-1977.
Response to the campaign has been "very good," according to Maj. Al Seeschaaf, wing information officer.
Col. Leali's "Project Launch" had Lt. Col. William
Breeze as the project coordinator. The project proved so
successful in Florida that Col. L.H. McCormack,
Southeast Region commander, moved him to the region



to coordinate a similar campaign in the states Of the
Southeast Region.
Col. Leali has continued his Project Launch in Florida
with Lt. Col. Robert Miller as director of the wing's
recruiting drive. Col. Miller appointed project officers in
each of the wing's 13 groups to hand efforts of lower level
units. The latest drive began Sept. 1.
Recruiting techniques being used in Florida include
recruiting assemblies at junior high schools throughout
the state, recruiting booths at shopping centers and
malls, presentations to civic and fraternal organizations,
use of radio and TV spot announcements on local media
outlets, and securing the cooperation of utility and banking firms to permit stuffing their bills and statements
with CAP brochures.
Col. Leali set a goal of 20 percent increase in cadet
members for the campaign and an increase of 15 percent

in senior members. He also set a goal of 39 new units in
the wing by June 30,1979.
As of Nov. 15, Florida had added 177 new senior
members and 237 new cadet members. As of Oct. 31, the
wing had added eight new units.
As an incentive to spur recruiting efforts, Col. Leali is
offering prizes to both senior and cadet recruiters.
Other Civil Air Patrol wings across the nation are also
gearing up for a drive that is expected to spur a dramatic
increase in membership by the end of the campaign
next June. A story elsewhere on this page describes a
recruiting effort in Tennessee.
In the nationwide recruiting campaign, prizes ranging
from aircraft for the winning wing to monetary prizes
for squadrons and trips to the National Board meeting
will be awarded.
Details of the national recruiting drive appear
elsewhere in this issue of the paper.
