B A LT I M O R E , M d . - - F o u r C a dettes from the Maryland Wing,
CAP, have been thai,ted by United
Airlines to visit its stewardess training center in Chicago for a special
week-long tour in July.
The four cadettes and a senor

a gesture of the company's appreciation for assistance the Maryland squadron gave at the scene
of the crash of a UAL Viscount
i n H o w a r d C o u n t y l a s t y e a r.
Civil Air Patrol helped maintain a security watch at the scene
of the crash for 187 hours while
investigators and airlines officials
were at work.
In a letter to Colonel William
M. Patterson, Wing commander,
p r e s i d e n t W. A . P a t t e r s o n o f
United, expressed appreciation
for the efforts expended in behalf of the company by members
of the Maryland Wing during the
events which followed the ae.
M r. P a t t e r s o n w r o t e , " Yo u r o r ganization went into action with
little or no delay and were most
efficient in the manner in which
they carried out their duties. I
am sure that this is due to the
leadership enjoyed by the organization and I congratulate you for
"During our search for a way
for United Air Lines to show its
appreciation for this assistance, I
learned that you might be interested in an orientation program
designed especially for young
women Civil Air Patrol cadets. As
a small token of the esteem which
we hold for the Maryland Wing of:
the Civil Air Patrol, United Air
Lines would like to establish such
an orientation program. This program, should it meet with your
approval, would be designed especially for four young women members of the Maryland Wing..."
The program will include two
stewardess indoctrination sessions,
a familiarization visit to United
Air Lines' facilities at O'Hare International Airport with a luncheon and tour of the executive

headquarters, sight-seeing in Chicago, and the stewardess graduation ceremonies during which the
Maryland cadettes will receive

D.R. Petty, senior vice.president of flight operations
for United Air Lines, and E. P. Buckthal, assistant vicepresident for engineering and maintenance, said that CAP
had done a wonderful job.

FRANK TAYLOR, Civil Aeronautics Board power
plant specialist in charge at the scene, said the work of
the cadets was "real terrific."
"I am really impressed with their work and the seriousness of the cadets," said Mr. Taylor, "They aren't just
playing soldier. They are well organized and equipped."
"We couldn't have done any better if we had paid
personnel doing the work these cadets are doing," said
S. L. Huntington, Air Lines Pilots Association's accident
investigator and line captain for United Air Lines who
added that he was also highly impressed by CAP's performance during the mission.
Colonel William M. Patterson, commander of Maryland Wing, who was on the scene and was interviewed
for a television newscast on the day of the crash, was
proud of his command's performance and let the squadron
commanders know it at their meeting at Wing Headquarters.
"I am proud of this worthy counterpart of the
USAF for the way it took hold of this task and finished
this mission," Col. Patterson said in speaking of the
security surveillance at the crash site, "I commend all
who are taking part, particularly Colonel Dupuis."
Said Lt. Col. Dupuis, "I thank you all. The praise is
for the squadrons participating and who have over the
past week-end already put in more than 2000 man-hours in
this mission."
By the afternoon of December 1 there was nothing
left to indicate that anything had ever happened in the
woods on the Gaither farm. The remaining pieces of the
wreckage, of no further use to the investigators, had been
buried and the scene covered over. "Tent city" was gone.
The telephone booths which had been set up were taken
away and the lines removed.
And CAP wrote "Finis" to this mission on its 21st

ware Wing. Alabama retained its
third place rating with 915.2 points,
a sizeable increase over last year's
867.0 rating
The current evaluation is the
second annual rating of regions
and wings since the Long Range
Plan was established. The evaluation and comparative ratings are
not to be construed as an accurate
analysis of the operational capabili t y o f a n y r e g i o n o r w i n g i n C A P.
The evaluation simply informs
each commander of his standing in
relation to programmed goals of
his wing or region as measured
against criteria set by the Long
Range Plan.
Not all areas of activity are
considered in the annual evaluation. Nine areas considered include: cadet enrollment, senior enrollment, cadet encampment, cadet
Certificate of Proficiency, licensed

tests, and CAP-CD agreements.

of taking the course. I believe I

can help my cadets more intelligently.

It was a little disconcerting to
learn that out of the 703 people
enrolled last time I heard, there
were seven hundred men and three
women. I'm sure the other two coeds are just as determined as I
am to complete the course with flying colors!
