had been much more progress to report.
When I present your annual report to the distinguished
uests at our 20th Anniversary Congressional Banquet on
ay 7 in Washington, I shall briefly state the more
significant facts, but I will have as my main theme the
commitment that Civil Air Patrol has made to further our
" ~"~
Long-Range plan.
All members of Congress will have received your 1961
Annual Report by mail prior to the banquet. Some of them
will have scanned it casually beforehand;
others may have read the promise it holds.
In any case, when I stress the plans we have
made for the next few years, 1 expect many
of them to return to read more carefully the
first portion of the repol~ titled, in part,
"year of denouement."
It is there that they will find that we
have at last, for the first time in CAP's
peacetime history, evolved a concrete plan
that can mean, in the span of a few years,
the most effective Civil Air Patrol this
country has ever known.
Ye s , t h i s r e p o r t i s a b o u t a y e a r o f d e ~nouement--a year ending a period of building a firmer founelation for progress, and producing a long-range program
with definite goals to be achieved each year so that we can
make orderly progress toward our ultimate goals.
In some areas, stronger wings outweighed others to
bring national statistics up a small amount but, generally
speaking, we managed, as usual, to maintain the status quo.
I am not enamored with statistics as such, but they do
provide us with useful measures of progress and in many
cases they are the only measure we have.

Aviation Agency Will Hold
Eight "Air Share' Meetings
~ " WA S H I N G TO N - - T h e F e d e r a l
Aviation Agency has scheduled
eight regional Air-Share meetings
to be held between April 18 and
30. to allow interested parties to
discuss proposed changes in regulations covering general aviation.
The conferences will be devoted
t o e x p l o r i n g t e n t a t i v e FA A p r o posals for revision of civil air regulations concerning general avlat i o n . L a t e r, w h e n p r o p o s e d r u l e s
are written, formal comments from
lntere#ted parties will be sought
by the agency. An Air-Share meeting will be held in each of the
FAA's seven regions and in Washlngton for the convenience of the
entire general aviation community.
In more than 100 similar previous meetings, the FAA has received suggestions, criticisms and comments volunteered by individuals
and groups. They have been carefully analyzed in preparing the
agenda for the April meetings. Discussion will be confined to this
agenda. However, if time permits,
other matters may be discussed.
Proposed rule changes scheduled thus far for the agenda
include requirements for additional instrument flight equipm e n t - - c a r b u r e t o r h e a t e r, p l e a t
tube heater, an alternate source of
power for gyroscopic instruments,
an alternate source of static pressure, and vacuum gauge or means
of power failure warning.
Other proposals:
Subclasses of certain types of aircraft would be specified on which
transitional pilot flight checks
would be required before carrying
passengers. For example, aircraft
w i t h o u t r e t r a c t a b l e l a n d i n g g e a r,
controllable propeller and wing
flaps would be included in one subclass.
Three, instead of five, landings
a n d t a k e o ff s w i t h i n t h e p r e v i o u s
00 days would be required as recent flight experience for pilots
qualifying on a different subclass
of plane. Recent experience requirements for night flight would
be deleted, but pilots holding a
commercial certificate without a
notation of night flying experience
would be required to take a checkout flight. "Grandfather" rights
would be provided for presently
certified pilots.
Helicopter pilots would be required to select paths for takeoffs and landings that would permit emergency landings without
undue hazard to passengers or to
persons and property on the
One instrument approach to the
bwest authorized minimums would

be required as recent instrument
flight experience. This could be accomplished In a flight under the
h o o d o r i n a s y n t h e t i c t r a i n e r.
Cross-country experience in an
airplane under actual or simulated
conditions would be required as
a prerequisite for an instrument
rating in airplanes.
All large aircraft designed for
two pilots would be required to
have a co-pilot in the crew. Private
pilots would be allowed to serve
as co-pilots provided the airworthiness certificate of the aircraft or
other operations rules do not require a co-pilot.
Other items involve consideration of changes in the rules for
displaying aircraft documents, retention of records on aircraft and
engine inspection and the establishment of new maintenance or
time-in-service records when previo~ records have been lost.
Reasons for the Industry's relatively small use of progressive Inspection systems will be discussed.
Proposed requirements that aircraft instruments and equipment
be in serviceable condition before
a takeoff, that flotation gear be required on all aircraft flying over
water with passengers -- and not
only for those carrying paying passengers -- will be on the agenda,
as will a proposed change of time
for checking VOR accuracy from
10 days and 10 hours to 30 days
and 30 hours. Miscellaneous items
affect flight crew members during
periods of physical deficiency, permission for student pilots to fly In
furtherance of a business, and a
clarification of the "share expense"
rules for private pilots.

strenuous effort.
There are at least three classes lasting an hour

will almost certainly participate in a discussion,
recite, or solve a problem at the blackboard.

real challenge." Each cadet is placed in a class
with cadets, of equal academic standing, and as a
cadet becomes capable of learning more, he is placed
ill a more competitive class. "I feel that this provides us with greater initiative to learn," he coneluded.
The educational objective ~ to produce a graduate with an analytical and probing mind, a man
aware of the vast technological problems of the
space age, for the Army officer of the future must
meet the challenges of the times Just as he has in
the peat.

In terms of classroom time, about 60 per cent
of the present standard academic program is devoted
to science-engineering subjects, while the remaining 40 per cent is in the social science and humanities field.
The Advanced Studies Program, which was expanded in 1959, offers a real challenge to the more
capable cadet. Elective courses enable the student
to proceed into areas wherein lie his own interests
and aptitudes. In recent years emphasis has been
increased in the areas of nuclear physics, electronics,
astronautics, and the history, government, economics
and culture of countries of the non-Western world.

a very competent suggestion, and
it would do much to further our
organization as well as make our
members more readily identifiable.
However, last year the State of
Illinois for the first time incorporated letter prefixes on its license plates for private passenger
cars. Prior to this time the letters
had been restricted to plates displayed on trucks, buses, taxis,
emergency vehicles, those vehicles
belonging to radio hams, and disabled veterans' cars. The new "letter plates" are composed of two~
and only two--letters followed by
four-digit numbers.
Considering that it took the state
so long to use the letters, I wonder how willing it would be to
initiate a three-letter plate, not to
mention the added expense of production and record-keeping. Perhaps if told that this idea would
serve not only to assist CAP members but also to increase the prestige of the state itself, the state
might see its way clear to-endorse the new system. After all,
the radio hams rate special plates,
so why not an organization of equal
My idea of the perfect "CAP
plate" would be to have the prefix letters "CAP" followed by a
designated number and have the
colors reversed in relation to the
regular issue of plates. A second
suggestion would be to use the
letters "CAP" and a number and
have the plates colored red and
blue on a white background. In
either case it would be eye-catch, JAMES JOHNSON

H A W K M O U N TA I N , P a . - - A
total of 227 Pennsylvania cadets
received basic and advanced instruction at the wing's annual winter Ranger survival school held
recently at the Ranger training
base in the heart of the Blue Mountains, 34 miles northwest of Allentown, Pa.
Cadets reported into the base for
registration after traveling from
squadrons throughout the state in
private cars, unit trucks and other
vehicles. They were promptly
ordered to fall in for inspection of
equipment, this being carried out
by Ranger Section staff officers
headed by Lt. Col. John N. Weaver,
Wing Ranger Commander and base
He was assisted by Capts. Bryan
Schaeffer, John McNabh and Clarence Green, all staff members.
After this inspection, basics were
separated from those for the advanced training. Groups were then
assigned to two U.S. Marine Corps
non-commissioned officers and one
Navy medical corpsman for a
series of lectures. The Marines
were Gunnery Sergeant Michael
Pavick of the Allentown Recruiting station, for basic, and Corp.
Joseph Kuzma of the Pottsville Recruiting Station, for advanced, and
Navy Corpsman Carl Gush of Allentown.
The 972nd Signal Company, U.S.
Army, stationed at Tobyhanna Signal Depot in the Poeono Mountains,
sent a detachment of 18 men to
take the course. Once all troops
had been inspected and lectures
finished they began the problems
that made up the training program.

sanitation, first aid, ground navigation, communications, construction
of shelters in woods, handling of
casualties, and search patterns
and techniques.
Field church services were held
at the base at Hawk Mountain.
Catholic services were conducted
by the Rev. George P. Schneider

The Wing Ranger training
base at Hawk Mountain was es.
tablished some eight years ago
and is used for both summer

training program, however, has
been running for 15 years.
The winter training is designed
to'test the effectiveness of ground
