blasts at Wichita and Colby.
Sub-bases of operation were located at Olathe, Hays
and Strother Field, near Arkansas City. The latter had
to be moved to Chanute because of simulated heavy radiation.
CAP Capt. Toby Elster was mission coordinator at
the wing command post set up in the State CD office in
Topeka, under direction of Ray Hazard, CD field officer.
and Warren Paramore, assistant state CD director. In
charge of the entire CAP operation was CAP Col. Charles
W. Matthis Jr., wing commander.
As soon as weather permitted, CAP planes were in
the air, with crews checking traffic along civilian evacuation routes and flying needed medicines and medical
personnel to "disaster-stricken" areas.
In actual disasters of this nature, crews would measure radiation levels to guide ground personnel in assisting local authorities and in helping to evacuate survivors. This was the first time a wing has attempted aerial
monitoring on a state-wide basis, according to Robert
O. Butler, state CD training officer.

Making Report :
Checking for Contamination
IMMEDIATELY after returning from aerial monitoring flight, Captain Benefield, on wing, and plane are
checked for radiation. Any radiation detected necessitates an an-the-spot decontamination by a special crew.
The same precaution is taken on each plane and crew returning from a flight into "disaster" areas. More than

SANDSTON, Va. -- The Byrd Field Cadet Squadron
of the Virginia Wing recently conducted a weekend
camp-out and practice search mission in which 23 cadets
and four senior members participated.
Bivouac camp was set up in an old sawmill area Just
off Route 632 and the boys hiked to nearby woods
in New Kent county in which a B-26 bomber crashed in
1946. Three teams were organized and told the general
area of the crash and what clues to look for.
After 20 years underbrush had covered most visible
clues, but the site is marked by a large crater and
scattered pieces of wreckage in a radius of 100 yards
from the crash.
Searchers, after finding the right spot, dug around
the crater for souvenirs as proof of their successful hunt.

I Crew Locates Target in Mission I
HENDERSON, N.C.--Civil Air Patrol squadrons from
Eastern North Carolina gathered recently at Kinston,
1N.C, to participate in the wing search and rescue effectiveness test. To encourage more units to attend and
to lessen travel distances, two operating bases were established--one at Kinston, the other at Salisbury.
The simulated problem for Kinston-based units centered around the search for a student pilot who had
|nadvertantly ejected from a T-33 jet trainer on a flight
from Cherry Point Marine Air Station, N.C., to Fort
Knox, Ky. The instructor pilot had stayed with the
aircraft and was also missing. CAP units at Salisbury
aearched for the pilot.
Mission coordinator for the eastern half of the state
was CAP Lt. Col. R. B. Hester, Group VII commander.
CAP Lt. Col. D. T. Lilley, commander of Group II,
served as commander of the Kinston base and arranged
for fuel, quarters for cadets and use of the field and
performed necessary Jobs for efficient ground support
Shortly after the mission commenced at 9 a.m. Saturday, a route search was flown from New Bern, N.C.,
to Burlington, N.C., and ramp checks were made at all
airports along the T-33 route. The main search effort

was concentrated 30 miles on each side of the flight
path. Aircraft arriving at the base were assigned search
areas as soon as they were fueled and crews briefed.
Search results were negative the first day and the
mission was suspended at 4 p.m., Saturday, but at 9
a.m. Sunday operations resumed and continued until
mid-afternoon, when the target, a strategically placed
parachute, was located about three miles northeast of
Magnolia, N.C.
Credited with spotting the tar'get were CAP WO
L. C. Woodcock, pilot, and CAP Lt. W. W. Ayscue,~observer. A mobile radio unit was dispatched to the
scene to affect the rescue.
During the two-day mission, 46 missions were flown
in 11 corporate and 11 private aircraft from the Kinston
base for a total of 90 hours. Also, 12 surface vehicles
and 12 mobile radio units were pressed into service at
the eastern base, where 168 CAP members were available for search and rescue duty.
Colonel Hester expressed pleasure that during the
entire two days of the mission, except for a couple st
cut fingers, there were no accidents involving personnel, aircraft or vehicles.

proficiency cards include Capt. Dave Taylor,
unit commander and a rated CAP pilot; WO
Dave Thompson, squadron communications officer and technical engineer for KKTV in Colorado Springs; and SM Eugene Cardinal, assistant to Thompson. The Air Academy unit is on
the air from 6 to 9 p.m. each Tuesday and
Wednesday. (Air Academy Composite Squadron photo)

exercises were SSgts. Nita Holloway, Dave Martin and
Tonkins and WO Lee Hoakland, all senior members,

Cadets received valuable instruction and training in
setting up a base camp, first aid techniques, field communications, field sanitation, air rescue and survival.

who commanded Nellis from 194951 and who is now national commander of CAP.
General Everest told his Las

was "also in the gambling business."
"We bet on turning out the best
fighter pilots in the world--and

GENERAL Everest discussed the
search and rescue effort in support
of the war in Vietnam where he
recently flew three combat missions.
"The Air Force is doing a great
job," he said, "but the rescue service is really outstanding. They are
making more than 80 per cent of
the pickups. CAP can be proud
of its search and rescue efforts in
the States, and to me, it is the
most important mission of CAP."
Warrant Officer Judith Ann Immele, Moses Lake Composite
Squadron, Washington Wing, received a standing ovation from the
delegates when introduced by Colonel Mason as CAP's entry in the
Powder Puff Derby. Warrant Ofricer Immele joined the cadet program at age 13, served as a cadet
