Conserving Urged Aerospace Educators Meeting
Will Be Held In Las Vegas
MAXWELL AFB, Ala.--In a letter to all Civil Air Patrol region
and wing commanders, Air Force Brig. Gen. Leslie J. Westberg,
national commander, asked that all CAP units and members make
a concerted effort to conserve our limited energy resources.
Following is a list of guidelines which he urged all members to
Schedule unit meetings during daylight hours if possible, i.e.,
consider weekend meetings.
Establish car pools for those attending CAP functions.
Reduce the frequency of unit meetings and make the most out
of those conducted.
Operate CAP vehicles at minimum safe speeds but, in no case,
exceed the 50 MPH limit.
Since special purpose vehicles such as weasels burn an unusual
amount of fuel, limit their use to mission.essential operations.
Discontinue issuing CAP vehicles to individuals and establish a
motor pool in each unit. Use vehicles only if really necessary on a
rotation basis to avoid storage deterioration.
Turn off lights and turn down heat when rooms and buildings
are not in use.
Close off all rooms that are not essential for unit operations.
Make sure the heat and air-conditioning to these rooms are turned

Chairman's Comments
By Brig. Gen. William M. Patterson,
CAP Board Chairman
A long time ago, we learned (the
hard way) three things about the
trials and tribulations of being a
squadron commander.
--It's the toughest and most important job in Civil Air Patrol.
--It requires the mobility of a traveling salesman, the memory of a
computer and the judgement of Solam on.

--And, like the weather, the job has
a long list of quixotic problems that
everybody talks
about, but nobody
does anything
With all this in
mind, I discussed
the problem with
our very capable
CAP-USAF training staff. In essence, this is what was tossed into
the lap of Lt. Col. Ralph W. Barrett.
C O R R E C T LY. S O , W H AT W E
Well, it was about 10 weeks ago
that we first discussed this "Mission
Impossible" script with Colonel Barrett. I can report to you now, that
our Squadron Commander's Guide
(SCG) is now off the press and distribution to the field will soon be underway.
I'm really excited about this publication because it's something we've
needed for a long, long time and it is
a brand new concept.
To b e g i n w i t h , w e ' v e l i t e r a l l y
squeezed an 80-pound filing cabinet
into a 6-ounce, poeket-sized encyclopedia covering just about everything a commander needs to know.
We hope (and expect) that each commander will want to keep his personalized SCG with him at all times.

Challenge 1974
memberships (seniors and cadets)
declined to below 60,000, and the
flying safety record was not up to our
professional capability. These areas
of slippage are but two of the
challenges in 1974 that each of us
must meet.

Supervision and individual effort
are the keys to a vigorous and
professional organization. The old
a d a g e , " Yo u c a n l e a d a h o r s e t o
w a t e r, b u t y o u c a n ' t m a k e h i m
drink," points out that supervision

Patrol plays an important part in the
overall mission. It is only by your

weathered the fat and lean years
since its inception in 1941.

An organization's safety record is a
barometer to their efficiency of
operation. There is no area of
operation that is hazard free. The
commander who requires each phase
of operation to be planned and
executed in a professional manner
automatically programs safety. If
accidents occur, it shows that details
were not worked out completely and
planning may have been incomplete.

We a r e e n t e r i n g a n o t h e r l e a n
period. With the energy crisis causing
a cutback in the amount of fuel
available, efficiency of operation is a
must. Aircraft scheduling must be

closely monitored, both as to purpose
of mission and pilot qualifications.
Currency and pilot proficiency must
be reviewed in relation to type
aircraft and weather conditions. The
challenge to do "more with less"
faces us in 1974.
Therefore, I ask each of you to
review your unit's policies and
procedures during this first month of
the new year. Are there changes that
can be made to increase efficiency?
Are there changes that can be made
to conserve energy during the coming
y e a r ? We m u s t l o o k f o r w a r d a n d
accept the challenges of 1974. Each
day we reap the rewards of
yesterday's planning.

Emergency Services Camp Re-Opens
KIRKLAND, Wash.--With the
aid of a U.S. Air Force Civil
Engineering team from McChord
,AFB. Wash., and a tremendous
amount of hard work on the part
of cadets and senior members
f r o m Wa s h i n g t o n ' s C i v i l A i r.
Patrol Wing, Western emergency
services training camp recently
underwent a major renovation.
Camp Young, located on the
edge of Sanderson Field near
Shelton Wash., consists of old
barracks buildings with quarters
for 150 personnel, a kitchen,
dining room, canteen, day room
communications offices.

The camp was established in
1959 by CAP Lt. Col. Charles H.
Young. During its 13 years of
operation, hundreds of CAP
members have shared training
there and on the some 1,100 acres
of land surrounding the camp.
This training inCludes land
and rescue,
communications, administration,
team work and fellowship.
Through these years, many
times at personal sacrafice and
expense, CAP members, and
parents of cadets worked
together to keep the buildings
maintained and the training
program operating.

Last year the camp was forced
to close due to a lack of funds for
repairs to the aging buildings.
This situation recently brightened when Air Force Lt. Col.
Linwood G. Koffel, Washington
Liaison Officer enlisted the aid of
the~45-man Air Force team with
their professional abilities in
repairing to assist with the work
on the camp.
Along with these "'blue
suiters," CAP members
converged on the camp every
weekend for two months in order

Located in the heart of
Christmas tree land the facility
is now rented to a firm which will
produce enough revenue to pay
for the majority of materials
used in the repairs."











SAR Exercise Adds
To Cadet Bivouac
T R I N I T Y. N . c . - - T h e H i g h
Point Composite Squadron
recently held a cadet bivouac
accompanied by a practice
search and rescue exercise.
Shortly after the cadets arrived
at the Asheboro, N.C. municipal
airport with their equipment,
several senior members arrived
and announced that a practice
SAR mission was also scheduled
for the next day. Working late
into the night, the cadets and
seniors established a base
operations, communications
center and made other necessary
preparations for the search
mission to start at dawn.
Early the next morning
aircraft and personnel from

other local CAP units began to
arrive to assist in the mission.
Thirty minutes after the initial
briefing, the first aircraft was
airborne and the other 12 aircraft
were dispatched at regular
intervals to search their
respective areas:
Following the practice
mission, the cadets were given
orientation rides in a helicopter
provided by the North Carolina
National Guard unit at the
Greensboro regional airport.
Personnel from the WinstonSalem, Dan River, Twin Lakes,
Raleigh and the Randolph County
Squadrons also participated in
the mission.

For Energy Conservation


Air Force Sets Guidelines
WASHINGTON -- Denial of
overseas sources of fuel supplies
to the Department of Defense
has seriously worsened a
situation which had already
dictated an active Air Force
energy conservation program.
The national security
implications of this situation
make it a matter of deep concern
to DOD and the Air Force. The
major challenge to the Air Force
has been to carry out its share of
the national fuel conservation
tasks without impairing the
combat readiness of its units.
The total annual consumption
of petroleum products by DOD
accounts for 3.7 percent of the
nationwide market. The Air
Force uses 65 percent of the
DOD portion, 92 percent of which
is in the form of aviation fuels.
Tiffs equates to approximately
2.4 percent of the national
petroleum consumption.
The Air Force has had an
energy conservation program
for many years. In anticipation
of a fuel shortage this winter, the
Air Force, in consonance with
Presidential guidance,
implemented increase fuel
conservation measures as early
as July, 1973. These measures
were designed to reduce
consumption of aviation fuels
by 14 percent in FY 74, 13
percent of which was
accomplished by adjusting the
FY 74 flying programs and 1
percent by modifying operating
procedures such as:
-- The establishment of more
efficient aircraft ground
operations, to include timing of
engine start-up and reduced
taxiing speed and ground run-up
-- Aircraft are using only
partial power for taxiing after
-- Crews are using optimum
cruise control.
-~Further reduce the use of
afterburners where possible.
-- Reduce use of high drag
aircraft configurations and
eliminate excessive fuel loads.

Internal Hight Clinics
by Maj. Peter T. Sayre, USAF
Ohio Wing Liaison Officer
Has your Wing been plagued
with the problem of getting your
pilots to take a 60-i check ride
annually? Pilot's schedules are
always in conflict with the check
pilots: the distance to go for a
check ride is too far: or perhaps,
just total pilot apathy towards
the entire check ride concept. A
change in the Federal Aviation
Regulations {FAR's). Part 61.
may give you just the leverage
you need to get your 60-1
program going. The vehicle that
produced results for us was a
CAP sponsored Internal Flight
Most of our pilots are well
aware that the FAA is promoting
a new accident prevention
program. As an integral part of
this course, they have
established the bi-annual
proficiency flight. This flight is
designed to allow the pilot to
have an experienced Certified
Flight Instructor (CFI) ride with
a pilot to determine if any unsafe
tendencies have developed over
the years, as well as update him
or her on some of the new philosophies and procedures in
aviation today. Here is where
our Civil Air Patrol Wings have a
unique opportunity to kill two
birds with one stone. With only a
few exceptions, the CAP 60-1
check ride and the FAA Flight
Proficiency r~des are almost
identical: both checkrides can
be administered at the same
time by an endorsed Certified
Flight Instructor.
In Ohio. we determined that
we would need two Internal
Flight Clinics to cover the Wing
geographically and numerically.
Each one of the clinics would be
sponsored and produced by one
of our Senior Squadrons: One in
the southwest portion of the
state in the Spring: then in the
northeast in the Fall. Realizing
that none of our squadrons could
produce sufficient CFI's
internally, we went throughout
the Wing to find those six or
seven high time CFI's who were
qualified and interested in
participating in such an activity.
We then contacted the local
General Aviation District Office
GADOI for FAA. After
discussing the concept of these
proficiency flights with the
Accident Prevention Specialist,
we submitted the names of these
selected CFI's and their
qualifications for his approval as
Accident Prevention Counselors.
(CFI's who are selected by the
FAA to administer these
proficiency flights). With his
approval, w e w e r e o f f a n d

able to get 100 percent of those
pilots who attended checked that
weekend, we felt confident that
those few we missed can be
picked up within the 90 day time
period allowed.
What positive returns on
investment are made for Civil
Air Patrol by using the Internal
Flight Clinic program?
1. CAP makes the FAA aware
that we are aggressl'vely
encouraging participation by our
pilots in bi-annual flight
proficiency programs. These
clinics also provide a good
opportunity for FAA to get new
safety information to general
aviation pilots.
2. An Internal Flight Clinic is a
great place to recruit pilots for

Cadet Directorate
Answers Qu tions .......
PROBLEM: Last year I
~'~-wanted to apply for Special
ActiVities but was not yet
eligible. Is it possible for me to'
be selected for two special
activities in 1974?
SOLUTION: Yes, it is
possible, however, ordinarily the
wing Cadet Special Activities
Selection Boards try to spread
the wealth, that is, get as many
cadets to special activities as
possible. Therefore, a cadet
would not ordinarily be selected
for two activities in one summer
while there were still qualified
applicants who had not been
selected for any activity.
PROBLEM: [ went on IACE
this past summer but have not
yet received my IACE ribbon.

AF Enlists
Former Cadet
C AT S O N V I L L E . M d . - - A
member of the Catonsville
Composite Squadron since the
age of 13. Cadet Lt. John M.
Schneider recently took the oath
of enlistment in the U.S. Air
Administering the oath was his
father U.S. Navy Rear Adm.
Raymond J. Schneider. Admiral
Schneider is also active in CAP
serving as a member of the
Maryland Wing Advisory Board.
Cadet Schneider was an active
member of the unit's ground
rescue team, drill team, cadet
communicator and participated
in Int,~rnational Air Cadet
Exchange in 1972.
A 1973 graduate of Mt. Saint
Joseph High School in Baltimore
he now plans to enter technical
training as a communications
center specialist upon
completion of basic training.

How do I get it?
SOLUTION: The 1ACE ribbon
is not issued automatically upon
p a r ~ m ~ i n t h e a c t i v i t y. T h e
ribbomcan be ordered from the
(~K-P~Bookstore catalogue.
PROBLEM: I attended an
encampment in 1973 and have
heard that I cannot attend
another one until I have received
my Mitchell Award. Is this true?
states that cadets who have
previ~y attended an
encamp~ut have not
earned the Mitchell Award may
not attend another encampment
until they earn the Mitchell
Award. This policy was designed
to insure that cadets who had not
yet attended an encampment
would have the opportunity to
fulfill this requirement for their
Mitchell Award.
PROBLEM: I recently had my
contract returned because I
didn't include a doctor's
statement saying that I couldn't
run a mile. I sent the statement
before. Is it necessary that I go
to the doctor for every contract?
This seems a little ridiculous.
states, "Cadets who are
physically limited must have
certification of the limitations
from a physican to include
diagnosis and if, applicable,
Prognosis for recovery. A copy
will be required as an
attachment to each completed
contract when submitted (a
reproduced copy is suggested,
since it will not be returned)".
This does not mean that you
must have a physical
examination at eacll contract
completion. However, a copy of
the limitations as certified by
the doctor must aecompnay each
contract as long as the limiting
condition exists.
