NEW YORK-Civil Air Patrol
members joined civic, Red Cross
and Civil Defense officials, plus
hundreds of other volunteers, in
relief work in central and upper
New York State following one
of the heaviest snow storms in
recent years in late December.
The snow began falling
immediately after Christmas.
Two days later, the storm had
dumped more then 26 inches of
snow on the area with drifts
many feet deep.
Heaviest hit was the area of
Albany-Troy-S henectady in
mid-state and Plattsburgh in the
upper part of the state. A CAP
observer, after flying over the
section, reported that
"Schoharie County is 90 per
cent 'socked in'."
Sections of Massachusetts,
Vermont, Maine, New
Hampshire, and Rhode Island
also were hard hit.
Civil Air Patrol planes flew
reconnaissance over the
snowed-in countryside, seeking
those who might be in need of
help. Families in rural and
outlying areas were advised by
radio and TV to stamp out the
letter "H" in the snow if they
needed help or to signal planes
flying over in some other way.
Others were able to call in by
telephone for assistance.
The planes flew from a field
closed to all traffic except CAP
aircraft. Planes from as far away
as Long Island and White Plains
flew in to assist.
CAP volunteers joined others
in using snowmobiles anti
four-wheel drive vehicles to
move food supplies, medicine,
and stock feed to those who ran
short because of the holiday
period. Deep snow prevented
automobiles from moving.

Civil Air Patrol, enthused over Zenon C. R. Hansen's proposal that all operators of aircraft support CAP
through special memberships, has appointed him national chairman of the industrial/Corporate
Membership Committee. Hansen, chairman of the board and president of Mack Trucks, Inc., was named
to the newly created position by Brig. Gen. Richard N. Ellis during a special meeting at the Lehigh
Country Club.
Among those in attendance were Brig. Gen. F. Ward Reilly, chairman of the CAP National Board and
Brig. Gen. Lyle W. Castle, Reilly's predecessor and now CAP legal officer.

Other Side of Picture
I:)) Brig. Gem Richard N. Ellis
Civil Air Patrol members are well-acquainted with search, and
rescue and in the conduct of such operations. It is not often,
however, that we hear from the other side of the pictore-frnm the
victims who are the objects of these searches.
Recently, the following letter came across my
desk and 1 am pleased to pass it on to you. It
presents, in a dramatic way, what Civil Air Patrol
"is all about."
The letter was written to Maj. Gene McCardle
of White Plains, N.Y., several weeks after the
major had been instrumental in saving the life of
the letter's author. Although it is a personal letter,
Civil Air Patrol members everywhere can take
pride in Major McCardle's accomplishment-a'nd in the organization
of which they are a part.
Here is the letter:

SCience Compresses Our Joy
No doubt, many of us
remember the time when we
shot a picture with the old box
camera and then waited in
anticipation for two weeks for
the final product. All during this
time we wondered just how it
was going to come out, and then
came the actual joy or sorrow at
what we produced.
Science has now ended all
that delightful anticipation. In a
matter of seconds we can snap
the picture and have the final
product in all its resplendent

Careless Preflight
Attitude "Is Cause
Of Accidents

One of the most common
types of !'war stories" heard in
hangar sessions are those
embarrassing incidents where
some pilot either neglected his
pre-flight altogether or was
careless in performing it. Who
hasn't heard of aircraft taxiing
out' with red streamers from the
gear pins flapping in the breeze?
Or known of a student pilot
wearing a T-33 fuel cap around
his neck after spewing jet fuel
over the countryside?
No one is immune. Take the
Quality Control Officer in

Stories of red-faced pilots like
these are humorous--if the blood
rushing to his face and making
him blush stays inside the skin.
Often as not, a careless pre-flight
causes a needless accident and
there's nothing humorous about
spilled blood.
Pre-flights are lifesavers, but
only if done properly. A poor

Cadets Search for Missing Boy
BRONX, ~Y.--Three Bronx Cadet units conducted a massive
search of the New York subway systems for a mentally-retarded boy
listed missing between 14th Street and IRT Division in December.
Some 40 cadets compiled more than 360 man-hours while covering
more than 150 miles on the search operation.
Despite the intensive search of the subway system covering
Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn the boy was not found.
It is believed that he may have gotten off the train and wandered
into Manhattan or Greenwich Village.
The search was the second of its kind for the Bronx Cadet Group.
Four years,ago, the unit rescued a mentally-retarded youth from the
subway system after a ~hree-day search effort.

Pilot Starts Kentucky SARCAP
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--A private
pilot who failed to close out his
flight plan triggered a massive
day long search for him by
members of the Kentucky Wing
in December. He was located at
Harlan, Ky.
The wing alerted 25 pilot
members and 30 observers to
begin flying missions for the
pilot listed as missing on a flight
from Ashland, Ky. to Tri-City,
Tenn. Four CAP airplanes and
15 member-owned airplanes
were used in the aerial search as

"In my four months of

"Being a Civil Air Patrol
member makes the search and

NMAC incidents to submit complete reports on these incidents to

completed in July 1969 and the "NMAC Report of 1968" has

Pilot's eye cue:

Much research is done presently on anticollision devices and there
is also a lot of discussion about suitable 'downed aircraft locators'. It
occurred to us, that in each case, the human eye is still one of the
most effective and most available instruments. Do we know how to
use it properly, though?

The human eye, much as a television camera receives an image.
The image is transmitted (also electronically) to a receiver--a part of
our brain. The picture which forms in the retina of our eye is
eventually projected onto a screen of nerve cells in the back of our
head (our TV-tube). Now you see. But do you really SEE? If you
were to fall asleep in front of a TV set, picture after picture, scene

you were not aware.

Aviation in its early days was confronted with this problem.
