What's So Special About Special Activities

November, 1969

From the Commander

Begin Anew
by Brig. Gen. Richard N. Ellis
national commander
Remember, as a child, getting an assignment from the teacher to
draw a picture? Remember how you sat down with a clean, new
sheet of paper. It lay there before you, bright, shiny, and unmarked,
awaiting the touch of your pencil or crayon.
You may have drawn a picture that your mother cherished but
which, in reality, was only a childish scrawl. An artist might have
taken the same sheet of paper and produced a work of art. The raw
materials were there. It was up to the individual as
to what was done with them.
In beginning my assignment as National l
Commander of Civil Air Patrol, I f'md that ourj
association-yours and mine-is sort of like being
handed a new sheet of paper and being told to
"write" or "draw." What we write or draw is up to
you and me.
Over the years, Civil Air Patrol has put its name
indelibly in the record books of aviation, writing
into history exploits and deeds of which its members can be proud.
CAP is famous for its air search and rescue efforts, for its efforts in
the national defense during World War !I, for its youth programs,
and for many other humanitarian activities.
Now, however, we have an opportunity to write new records, to
begin anew, to correct any past mistakes, to produce new exploits,
to make Civil Air Patrol worthy of the fame it enjoys.
1 look forward to my tenure with CAP. Already I am finding it a
challenge-and an opportunity which I welcome, and I come to you
with no definite or limiting commitments except to try to make the
organization one which will enjoy the respect and confidence of the
You, too, can begin anew, as if with a new sheet of paper upon
which we can write. I urge you to re-examine your old ways of doing
things with a critical eye, to look at things objectively and then
amend those that need it..I urge you to "get out of the rut,"-if you
are in one-to try something new, to help Civil Air Patrol grow in
numbers but, more important, to grow in effectiveness.
Together, we have an opportunity to start afresh. Let us make
CAP more worthy of the praise it has received in the past. I cannot
do it alone. I need your help and I ask it now.
I am pleased to be associated with you in Civil Air Patrol. I
believe our association will be a pleasant and productive one for all
of us.

Lesher Named Honesdale's Commander
DRUMS, Pa.--CWO Curtis R. Lesher, Lake Ariel, Pa., has been
named to succeed Capt. Frank I. Breidenstein as commander of
Honesdale Composite Squadron. He was appointed to the command
position, Oct. 14, at a change of command ceremony at J. J. Kohler
School. Captain Breidenstein relinquished his command to become
Group 20's assistant emergency services officer.

The dictionary defines 'special' in part as
" d i s t i n g u i s h e d b y s o m e unusual
So what's so special about Civil Air Patrol's
Cadet Special Activities?
Two aspects-one positive and one negative.
The Positive
Each of CAP's special activities is
distinguished by an unusual, unique and
noteworthy quality. Each offers an opportunity
unobtainable in any other way in just the same
form at just the same critical time in a cadet's
The "specialness" of special activities
attracts many cadets into CAP. National
Headquarters therefore plans these high level
learning experiences to run the gamut from the
Spiritual Life Conference and the Cadet Flying
Encampments to the International Air Cadet
Exchange. The object is to see that cadets
receive maximum benefit for their future
development as "dynamic Americans and
aerospace leaders."
Ideally, every qualified cadet should attend
as many special activities as possible, but,
because of limited funds and facilities, quotas
have to be established for each wing. These
quotas, at best, allow for only a limited number
of cadet participants and senior escorts.
It is therefore incomprehensible to National
Headquarters that wings find it difficult, and in
all too many cases impossible, to fill their
You guessed it. We are leading Cp to

last summer as another wing with ten times the

Chairman's Comments

failed to fill its quotas in six activities?
The small wing filled 129.5 per cent of its
quotas, and ranked first among the 52 wings,
while the large wing met only 45 per cent of its
quotas and ranked 50th. Another of the largest
wings failed to meet quotas on five activities
and ranked 47th. Only eleven wings filled more
than 100 per cent of their quotas, and they did
so because other wings fell short. Region
percentages showed a range from 79.5 to 51 per
The "word" is apparently not getting
through to all qualified cadets and to potential
senior member escorts.
National Headquarters is convinced that all
wings have enough qualified and interested
cadets and senior escorts to meet assigned
quotas. Several activities require the cadet to
have, among other things, the Billy Mitchell
Award, but others require only the completion
of four achievements in Phase II.
Quota assignments for 1970 Cadet Special
Activities were recently mailed to all regiOn and
wing commanders. Quotas in three activities
were cut below the 1969 level because of lack
of participation and because of fund and
facility shortages. Higher quotas were given to
four, however. These are: The International Air
Cadet Exchange, the Nurses' Orientation
Course, the Communications Electronics
Course, and the Air Force Academy Survival
To return to the title question: What's so
special about special activities is that summer,
1970, offers a new challenge to eliminate the
negative and accent the positive. If all unit
commanders make an unusual, unique and
noteworthy effort to see that all quotas for
1970's special activities are filled, IT CAN BE

FREDERICK, Md.--In the interest of public safety, the Frederick
Squadron, Maryland Wing, premiered two aviation safety films, Oct.
16, at Frederick Airport. The local CAP unit's aims were to generate
greater safety awareness by implementing a large-scale aircraft
accident prevention program among the aviation-minded public and
people associated with flying.
Shown were "Moods in Safety" and "Ground Safety on the
Flight Line". The first movie demonstrated how the individual's
emotions impairs his judgement as a pilot and the second film

Instructors Meet at Hanscom Field
HANSCOM FIELD, Mass.--Twenty-eight Civil Air Patrol program
instructors attended the first aerospace instructor's workshop in the

improve the quality of instruction in units throughout the wing.
While participating in the program, the instructors heard of the
importance of cooperating with local libraries, discussed ways of
improving teacher-student relationships and heard a progress report
on the Tew-Mac Squadron's aerospace and flying programs.
Lectures, demonstrations and discussing teaching methods were
presented to those attending the program.

VANDALIA, Ohio--AIC John W. Kimball of Dayton was named
an honor student by the Electronics Principle's Department, 3380th
Technical Training School, recently, at Keesler AFB, Miss. This
achievement is attained by less than one per cent of the students
who attend the Air Force electronics school.
Kimball credits his training in Civil Air Patrol with giving him an
edge over his fellow classmates while learning about the radio
compass, radio altimeter and other navigational aids.
He is the son of Mr. Wes Kimball, Great Lakes Region aerospace
education director.

Major Becomes First To Win ZD Award
MANCHESTER, N.H.--Maj. Calvin W. Stiles, New Hampshire
Wing deputy for communications, received a citation recently and
became the first man in Civil Air Patrol to receive the organization's
Zero Defects award. He was cited for professional duty performance
and enhancing the organization's image and mission effectiveness.
"His contributions to the wing's communications capability
reflected great credit on himself, the wing, and the Northeast
Region," the citation accompanying the award read.
Designed to inspire individuals to do the job right the first time,
every time, the program stresses the importance of workmanship and
emphasizes the prevention of errors by identifying and removing the
causes. The wing commander in each state nominates the individual
to National Headquarters for semi-annual award consideration.
A resident of Plaistow, N.H., Major Stiles joined Civil Air Patrol
in 1952. He has been the wing communications officer since 1966.
