Traffic at 10 o'Clock
Can You See Him ?
Picking out moving aircraft
against a cluttered background is
not always a simple matter, even
when aided by radio advisories.
Understanding how the eye sees
motion will introduce you to a
useful trick.
Many a pilot has had the
embarrassing experience of being
asked repeatedly by the control
tower if he has the traffic in his
vicinity in view, without being
able to confirm. Conditions may
be VFR, the aircraft may be
identified as "a light twin at ten
o'clock, just about 300 feet
below you and passing by the
Temple..." and still you may
not be able to pick it out of the
It may be because you are
inexperienced or over anxious as
your eyes race over the area, but
the fact is that if you are over a

housing development or thickly
settled section with smoke or
haze in the air, the background
provides a natural camouflage
for the elusive other plane.
A helpful technique for
spotting aircraft, under these
circumstances, is to hold your
eyes momentarily off the area in
question. Objects in motion,
against a stationary background,
tend to attract attention; if the
eyes themselves are in constant
motion, this is less true.
NOTE: After this momentary
resting of the eyes, you should
resume a constant scan of all
quadrants of the sky to protect
yourself and others. This trick
should only be used when you
fail to spot a moving target.

Ala.--School is out and, for
millions of young Americans, it
will be a summer of sunning,
swimming, and doing not much
of anything. But for thousands
of teen-age members of Civil Air
Patrol, CAP cadets, June, July,
and August are active. The
reason is that they are taking
part in a variety of special
programs designed to further the
aerospace education and training
offered them by CAP.
This summer, Civil Air Patrol,
U. S. Air Force auxiliary, is
sponsoring some 12 programs at
a national level for its cadet
members. These are supervised
and directed by National
Headquarters of CAP at Maxwell
AFB, Ala.
All of them are designed to

and its many aspects, and to
help build leadership abilities.

Cadet Leadership School, Reno,
Nev., June 21 through Aug. 10;
the International Air Cadet
Exchange (lACE); and the Cadet
Flying Encampments.
The IACE, which has been
called an "exercise in
international understanding,"
offers outstanding CAP cadets
an opportunity to visit any of a
number of foreign countries. At
the same time, young people in
similar organizations in these
same countries visit the United
States. The 1ACE is scheduled
this year July 20-Aug. 13.

Comments from the Chairman



Individual Responsibility
Often Clouded in Doubt
B y B R I G . G E N . F. WA R D R E I L LY,
CAP National Chairman
The role and responsibilities of the Civil Air Patrol member is
often clouded by a lack of knowledge of the organizational structure
as provided by the Constitution and By-Laws together with other
regulatory provisions.
No member of Civil Air Patrol, with the exception of the
National Commander, shall be "appointed or
elected to office for longer than one term.
However, he may serve until his successor is duly
appointed or elected.
The term of office of corporate officials
(Region and Wing commanders and other members
of the National Executive Committee, except the
National Commander) shall begin at the close of
each annual meeting of the National Board and
will end at the close of each annual meeting of the
National Board. The term of office of other members of Civil Air
Patrol shall terminate on December 31 each year.
An evaluation of all Civil Air Patrol members, with the exception
of the National Commander, will be made annually before
reappointment or re-election by the appropriate appointive or
elective authority.
The Chairman of the National Board shall be elected by the
National Board. He shall appoint the National Board vice-chairman
and Regional commanders.
A Wing Commander will be elected by the National Executive
Committee for each wing and he will command that wing. He may
appoint and remove Group commanders and Squadron commanders
within his command.
The National Board Chairman may serve in office three
consecutive terms. Beginning with the first term in office following
the October 1968 annual meeting of the National Board, Region,
Wing and unit commanders may serve four consecutive terms.
The very foundation of Civil Air Patrol rests upon the integrity of
those vested with the appointive or elective authority and which
authority must be respected by all members.
There can be no recognition of collective actions, petitions,
demands or threats of resignation in Civil Air Patrol. Such actions
constitute a violation of the members oath of application: "!
voluntarily subscribe to the objectives and purposes of the Civil Air
Patrol and agree to he guided by the Constitution and By-Laws of
Civil Air Patrol and such rules and regulations as may be
Every member of Civil Air Patrol, individually has a right to be
heard through the established regulatory procedures to resolve
differences or grievances.
Civil Air Patrol is a great organization with the stature and dignity
of an auxiliary of the United States Air Force. It is the duty of every
member of Civil Air Patrol to guard and protect the great heritage
with which we are endowed.

CAP National Commander
Last montl~ I commented on the barrage of criticism being hurled at our
military establishment.
l~y coincidence, and just about the
time you were reading our June issue of
Civil ~kir Patrol News, one of the strongest, most knowledgeable replies to these
critics was being made. I'm referring to
President Nixon's speech at the Air Force
Academy. It was a crackerjack talk, delivered in an aggressive, convincing manner as millions watched on television or
listened by radio. Later it was carried by
newspapers and magazines throughout
the world where it was studied and analyzed by friend and foe.
'Ibis talk was labeled, "Defending the
Defenders," by a leading magazine, and
t h a t ' s a g o o d t i t l e . T h a t ' s j u s t w h a t M r.
Nixon did -- and who is more qualified?
He is not only the 37th President of the
U n i t e d S t a t e s , M r. N i x o n i s a l s o C o m
mander-in-Chief of all our Armed Forces.
Every man and woman who wears a
uniform -- and that definitely includes
the Civil Air Patrol -- should salute the
President for his courage and integrity.
His subject, and the vigor with which he
~,ackled the issue, was certain to hurt him
in some influential quarters. I'm convinced Mr. Nixon knew the risks. I'm equally
certain he was cautioned accordingly but
he did what he felt had to be done . . .
and he did it with candor and conviction.
"It is open season on the Armed Forces," the President said, "Military programs are ridiculed as needless, if not
deliberate waste. The military profession
is derided in some of the so-called best
circles of America. Patriotism is considered by some to be a backward fetish
of the uneducated and unsophisticated."

skeptics and isolationists. When the first
explorers set out from Europe toward the
New World, he said, "These men would
have weighed the risks and they would
have stayed behind." When pioneers left
the colonies to push westward into the
unknown, "these men would have count-

ed the costs and stayed behind."
"This s c h o ol of
thought," the President
maintained, "holds that
the road to understanding~
with the Soviet Union and
Communist C h i n a lies
through a downgrading of
our own alliances and
what amounts to unilateral reduction of our arms

Frequency of 'Sickness' Discussed
by Chaplain, It. Col. Vincent C. Merf~d
If you want to start a lively
conversation among friends pick
on the topic of "how sick this
generation is and how much
turmoil is in the world." Such
was the case when I recently
participated in a discussion with
a group of friends. I was mildly
struck by the frequency with
which this or that person whose
name came up in the
conversation was dismissed as
"sick". The conversation nearly
always ended with "Well, he's
(she's) sick, really sick".
When I pointed it out, they
all agreed that we had expressed
this judgement with surprising
frequency. Many reasons were
given by all present and one I
thought gave the best answer. He
said that the trouble with us, as
well as with those with whom
we disagree, is that we lack faith,

with a small "f" faith with trust.
We don't have enough faith in
each other and in other words
we don't trust each other. The
young distrust the old .... the
Russians 'distrust the
Americans .... Black races
d i s t r u s t t h e w h i t e
races .... conservatives distrust
liberals and visa versa.
Faith might be a first small
step in healing some of the
divisions among us. I'm thinking
mainly of the current situation
in the church, since here we find
especially the polarities of young
versus old and liberal versus
The tendency to ascribe
"sickness" or eccentricity to
those whose views differ from
one's own is leading us all down
a very dangerous road. It
amounts to a willingness to shut

off debate before it has started
and, worse, it opens the mind
not to fact but to fantasy. If I
believe that one is emotionally
imbalanced then I'll also believe
anything, no matter how bizarre,
about him. "Poor man, he
doesn't really know what he's
doing." And the last state of the
debate becomes worse than the
To invoke such a device is
merely evading the issue which
divides us. Rather, we must
confront the issue candidly, and
the emotional state of those who
disagree is beside the point. We
must examine carefully the
position of others and think
through our own.
Yes, I would say we must at
least begin with faith. To start
anywhere else is to flee from
reality, and that is itself the root
of all emotional sickness.

'The New Breed'
"Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt

NEW YORK, N.Y.--When the whistle blows
in the grim business of saving lives, there is no
room for error, no time for floundering and no
place for "on.the-job" training.
In other words, the response by the Civil Air
Patrol must be instantaneous, and it must be
professional. Long experience has proven there
is only one way for CAP units to attain and
maintain that operational readiness .... realistic
training under exacting, tough, conditions.
The New York Wing recently demonstrated
its strong support of that belief when it
triggered a no.notice alert at 3 "o'clock in the
morning. (Is there anything more realistic than
a jarring phone call. several hours before dawn?)
The two-day exercise was launched by Maj.
Hank Schulter, USAF, liaison officer to the
New York wing. He advised Col. Jess Strauss
that a privately.owned airplane was overdue at
its destination in upstate New York. It had left
an airport on Long Island the previous
afternoon. Colonel Strauss personally assumed
command of the mission and immediately put
his pyramid alert system into effect. Rapid calls
went to sector commanders who notified group
commanders who alerted squadrons and by
dawn more than 1,500 CAPers were on the job.
A base of operations was established at
Westchester County Airport where Colonel

mentioned earlier were manned on a 24-hour
basis. The state-wide action involved some 350
vehicles including jeeps, trucks and ambulances.
Additionally there were special vehicles used by
the 25 land rescue units which participated.
In a giant operation of this scope, which was
spread across some 47,000 square miles of New
York real estate, it's nearly impossible to
deliver a flawless performance. But the Empire
Staters came through with the highest possible
effectiveness rating. In passing the wing with a
100 percent rating, Colonel Beez noted:
" . . . ( t h e ) N e w Yo r k W i n g o f t h e C i v i l A i r

efficiency in handling this type of emergency."
Additional praise for the successful
operation came from the National Commander
of Civil Air Patrol. Speaking from his
headquarters at Maxwell AFB, Ala., Maj. Gen.
Walter B. Putnam, said:
"This large-scale exercise, under realistic
emergency conditions; again illustrates how far
the Civil Air Patrol has advanced in becoming
the leader among all agencies engaged in aerial
search and rescue. It also graphically illustrates
there is no substitute for exacting training
because practice makes perfect...and in our
business of saving lives, anything less than a
maximum, professional response is
unacceptable. My ~ongratulations to all

General Outlines 'How
Not to Be A Leader'
MAXWELL AFB, Aia.-Lea(lership qualities are essentially the
same no matter what uniform is worn.
Similarly, many of the principles apply equally to civilian
pursuits. That's why we think the following remarks should be of
interest to all members of the Civil Air Patrol.
It's from an address by Lt. Gen. Seth J. McKee, Assistant
Vice-Chief of Staff, USAF, to the graduating class of the Squadron
Officers School at Maxwell AFB, Ala.
"'1 can describe," General McKee said in regard to the application
of leadership techniques, "some styles of leadership l've observed
that may serve as a handy guide on how NOT to do it.
"'First, THE ANEMOMETER: He makes sure of wind direction
and velocity before setting a course. Always flies downwind.
"'THE GYROSCOPE: This man maintains a rapid, stable rate of
rotation around a fixed axis, with imperceptible forward movement.
"ATTILA THE HUN: Leads through fear. Apparently suffers
from chronic indegestion or badly decayed molars. Guaranteed to
discourage new ideas and dampen initiative.
who uses his staff as a security blanket. This may be okay when you
begin a new and strange assignment, but you'd better not go that
route for very long.
"THE SUPER-EGO: Believes he was favored above all men when
brains were issued. Creates bottlenecks with curves in them by
redoing everything his staff does.
"THE GREEN-EYED MONSTER: The guy who doesn't trust
anyone and won't give credit to his subordinates. He has forgotten
that, without their support, his ladder to success has no rungs.
"THE HERMIT CRAB: Lives in splendid isolation, gathering
more and more ignorance of what goes on in his organization.
"THE MADISON AVENUE MINION: Thinks leadership is a
popularity contest to be won on transparent superficialities. Avoids
the hard decisions that won't move the applause meter off the high
"Finally, THE MUSHROOM GROWER: Keeps everyone in the
dark and fertilizes regularly.
"'Whatever your own style of leadership may be," the General
went on, "there are two attitudes you should never tolerate in your
organization. The first is, 'Don't rock the boat'; the other, 'Don't
stick your neck out.' There wouldn't be an Air Force as we know it
today-or maybe even a country-if it weren't for some of your
predecessors who were willing to pay a price for constructive change.
"Every one of us has to be prepared at some time to lay his
career-or at least his ER-on the line for what he believes to be
right. This is not something to be done frivolously or
impulsively-certainly not to the prejudice of discipline. Knowing
when the end justifies a risk of great personal sacrifice-either in
combat or in management-is the mark of a true professional."

'Patterns For Sudden Death'
THE PROBLEM: Frequently,
a person of this type does not
respond to educational
corrective efforts. He has a
supreme confidence in himself,
which from a technical point of
view is often justified. He also
knows that no disciplinary
action can be taken unless there
is clear evidence of specific
violations of the Civil Air
We know he knows this, and
must try to plug along as best we
can in an effort to obtain
sufficient clear evidence of his
carelessness to warrant a
suspension or revocation of his
pilot certificate by the CAB.
In the meantime it almost
seems that his death warrant has
T H E F O R E C A S T: I n t h e been signed. By the time a group

home town friends who refuse
to testify to his unsafe flying.
There is the tragedy of his

trust in the pilot's ego and is
killed with him.
An inspector is not out to
"get" somebody like that. He
has a deep and professional
concern for the very life of some
passenger who may be with the
pilot on his final flight. He has
concern for the pilot himself,
and would far rather "sell" him

It requires insight and
perception, and we may fail in
it. But this we know: our failure
may cost the pilot his life. We
are not heckling, we are trying
to correct something dangerous
to the pilot and the public.
When the pilot is misguided, he
needs our help, and real help
from all his friends. (CPOS)

Dear General Putnam:
On Saturday, March 22, my husband was flying to Durango in the
airplane that crashed into West Spanish Peak. While the children and
I stayed here in Denver, we know that hundreds of people gave
unselfishly of their time and money looking for the plane and its
occupants. I want to take this opportunity to thank Civil Air Patrol
for their efforts.
Over and over again, one man's efforts were cited to me. Mr. Ken
Leach of Center, Colo., gave personal attention to our concerns and
inquiries. He and his wife worked from predawn to late at night in
our behalf.
There is no way to adequately thank these wonderful people, but
I felt sure you would want to know of the Leach's work which add
another chapter in the fine work and image of the Civil Air Patrol.
They certainly deserve whatever recognition the CAP makes for such
dedication to the principles of the Civil Air Patrol.
Sincerely yours, Phyllis Thompson (Mrs.)

Dear Sir:
I don't know whether or not this is proper to write to you. I am
writing to put forth a few comments I have in mind as I have been
associated with Civil Air Patrol for 10 years as a cadet and senior
member. I have been active in the program with the exception of 22
'months of which I was pulling two tours of duty in Vietnam as a
dust-off crew chief.
I have found in CAP sense of doing a job that is helping my
fellow man that has only been equalled to my duty as a medical
evacuation crew chief. I have attended the Southwest Regional
Conference at which you spoke and your address so impressed me, I
felt that I wanted to express my feelings.
The program which you outlined is the best every offered to CAP
as it is designed to develop the future leaders this country needs. I
know my years in the CAP Cadet Program helped me when I entered
the Army and many of the things I learned in CAP came in handy
while I was in Vietnam.
Civil Air Patrol has meant a lot to me and I feel it has helped me
as no other organization but the military service could.
I am now stationed here in Army Aviation and I know before
long I will be reassigned. Any where I may be stationed I know I will
find a CAP Squadron and I promise to do my best to put the
programs you outlined into effect and establish the high standards
you have set forth.
