said, is the great progress in such
things as atomic power, rapid
communications and
transportation, and the lack of
control over these things.
"Man," he said, "has the power
to control everything but
himself." We must renew our
true faith ..... if we are to have
the wisdom to control ourselves,
he added.
Another factor in the
present-day conflict and

confusion, Dr. Judd stated, is
internal conflict--on the age
front, the educational front, the
economic front, the racial
scene--within our own country.
However, he said, these same
things exist around the world.
Dr. Judd disagreed with the
assertion that "we must create a
moral order for our time." "We
already have one," he sa~
pointing out that following t'ne
moral order we always have had
is the only way to settle our
confusions and conflicts.

Comments from the Chairman



Summcr Activities A Success
Because of Members Support
I)) Brig. (,en. F. ~Xar(I Reill)
National (:hairma,,
We have just closed out a summer filled with productive
activity .... a summer which has seen this organization complete one
of the most successful summer activity programs ever undertaken by
Civil Air Patrol. Improvements were made in existing programs while
new ones such as the Nurse Orientation Course, the Communications
Electronics Course and the Survival Course were instituted. Virtually
every other cadet special activity course was expanded this summer
to increase substantially the numbers attending.
This is, without a doubt, the most encouraging
and promising aspect of the entire summer activity
program. It bespeaks a vigorous and dynamic
organization, a Civil Air Patrol advancing in tempo
with the swift thrust of the Space era.
On the Senior side, we had good response from
our pilots to the Federal Aviation Administration
courses at the FAA Academy at Will Rogers Field
and an equally gratifying response at the Senior
Member Staff College at National Headquarters. But these summer
activities just didn't happen. They had to be carefully planned,
closely supervised and efficiently administered.
And for the accomplishment of these functions, we hasten to
express sincere thanks and appreciation to the many Senior members
who volunteered for these demanding duties, as well as to the
highly.motivated and capable Air Force Reserve officers who helped
us make this summer program the huge success it was.
This spontaneous enthusiasm, the outstanding cooperation of all,
and in particular, the willingness of each CAP member to assume
individual responsibility in helping make the summer activity
program go is a source of great pride and satisfaction to myself and
members of your National Board.
On behalf of the Board, therefore, I want to extend to every
member who participated and helped, sincere appreciation and
thanks and urge that you continue to contribute, with pride and
with motivation, toward the goals and objectives of this

which has a nationwido
readership of more than 70,000.

Purpose of the school was to
develop the members' leadership
skill while teaching the group
ground search and rescue
techniques. The training was
divided into four categories
which included basic instruction
for beginners; an advanced
course for those with one
summer school and some ground
rescue experience; a special
advanced course for those
desiring more intensive training
and a course for senior members.
Those attending the course
were required to build
para-shelters, were given little
food and were taught how to
live off the land. They were
instructed in navigation; river
crossing; survival; cliff
rappelling; mountain climbing;
communications; first aid; and
securing crash sites.
The training activities began
daily at 5:30 a.m. and classes did
not end until I0 p.m. Those
beginning the course began the
day's activities with a brisk run
through an obstacle course and a
two-mile run before breakfast.



Pennsylvania State Secretary of
Highways and officials from
Pennsylvania State police, visited
the school to watch the training.

Those who attended the
training will have an opportunity
to test their skills at the Ranger
Competition to be held Oct. 4-5.

Since Bury was not
experienced in mountain flying,
Maj. B. C. Morrison, mission

he assumed that, since the plane

would not be able to climb as
fast as the valley floor under it.
The search, therefore, was
confined to the high country.

on the success of the 1969
International Air Cadet
Exchange officials are already
planning to expand next year's
program to include additional
nations to the 25 already taking
part in the program. It is
planned that three countries will
be added annually to the lACE,
said Maj. Joseph E. Wierzbicki,
Inc~ded in this year's
program were cadets from Asia
and the Pacific areas who joined
hands with those from Europe,
Near East,"North and South
America in the International Air
Cadet Exchange.
The Exchange, which this
year involved participation by
more than 200 Civil Air Patrol
cadets and a similar number of
their foreign counterparts, is
designed to foster international
good will, understanding and
fellowship among the youth of
the world through a common
interest in aviation.

The program which began in
1948 with an exchange of cadets
between the Air Cadet League of
Canada and the Civil Air Patrol,
has been conducted annually
since that date. The 1969
Exchange marked the largest
total number of cadets ever to
participate as well as the greatest
number of countries. The
visiting cadets came from 25
foreign countries and the British
Crown Colony of Hong Kong.
This was the 22nd
consecutive year the CAP cadets
have participated in the
Exchange, one of the national
highlights of CAP's Special
Activities program. It was also

Each group was escorted by
adult members of their

United States each of the
national groups were hosted by a
Civil Air Patrol wing.
The CAP cadets and their
counterparts from foreign
countries were selected for their
extraordinary leadership,
character, academic achievement
and good citizenship merits.
Many of today's aviation leaders
are former participants of the
International Air Cadet
More than 30 foreign
countries have participated in
the Exchange over the past 21
years and some 6,000 cadets
have taken part in the program.

cadets visiting abroad returned
from their visits, Aug. 13.
During their four-da~ stay in

work that he and other test

groundwork for missions such as
