Scouting moves to separation of boys, girls
KANANASKIS COUNTRY, Alberta (AP) — One of every 20 persona arriving for the 15th World Scout Jamboree is female, but the grandson of the movement's founder sees boys and girls once again going their separate ways in scouting.
“Social morals go in circles. Morality is coming back and, equally, segregation (of boys and girls) is coming back again," Lord Robert Baden-Powell said Monday. Baden* Powell, 46, whose grandfather founded scouting in 1906, heads a coeducational troop in Guilford, England.
Baden-Powell said his grandfather was “shocked at seeing the first troop of girl scouts, because it never occurred to him that little girls would want to play the game of scouts."
While troops in the United States and Canada generally are not mixed, several countries sent coeducational delegations.
About half the 13,600 scouts registered for the jamboree had arrived by late Monday in this rugged country in the Canadian Rockies, about 50 miles west of Calgary, and the rest were expected today.
In preparation for Wednesday's ceremonial opening, scouts set up tents and pursued the jamboree tradition of trading patches identifying their home nations.
They seemed oblivious to some political maneuvering behind the scenes. Taiwan abruptly dropped its plans to send 20 scouts because Canada, the host nation, recognizes the People's Republic of China as the only China.
Because of political tensions at
home, efforts also were made to separate Israeli and Arab tent sites and those of Northern Ireland from other United Kingdom delegations.
While Baden-Powell said he sympathized with jamboree organizers trying to reduce possible friction, he believed children “couldn’t care less" about adult politics.
The founder would not have fought boy-girl scout troops, nor would he have been surprised that politics sometimes interfered with scouting, Baden-Powell said.
On a trip to pre-revolutionary Russia, the movement’s founder saw how the czar used scouts as an arm of government, his grandson said.
Baden-Poweil’s lordship was given first to his grandfather for his scouting work and has been passed from generation to generation. All three generations have been active in scouting.
“Given the choice, I would rather not have the name (title), because it is so much responsibility. I just have so much time and my business takes me out of the country so much," he said.
Baden-Powell, a currency broker, said, nonetheless, that on reading his grandfather's book, “Scouting for Boys,” “I wanted to run out of the house and start up a scout troop right out.”
The first l/>rd Baden-Powell, a British army officer and hero of the Boer War, “had an idea of how boys could help themselves,” his grandson said. “He realized that if you had young people growing up with adult responsibilities, they could help themselves tremendously."
Governing party of Mexico admits defeat
MEXICO CITY (AP) - The government's party acknowledged a major defeat in elections in northern Chihuahua state, but claimed sweeping victories in balloting for mayors and congressmen in four other states.
Returns broadcast Monday by the government television network from the northern state of Chihuahua showed the governing Institutional Revolutionary Party, known by its initials PRI, was losing by a wide margin to the opposition National Action Party — PAN — in the state capital's race for mayor.
The government television network quoted Guillermo Prieto, Chihuahua state president of the PAN, as saying his conservative party had won at least nine other mayoralties in Sunday’s elections, in addition to the capital Chihuahua City, an urban center of 390,000 people.
Prieto claimed the PAN had won by more than 2-to-l in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico's fifth largest city, across the border from El Paso. But government sources said Ciudad Juarez returns indicated a much closer race.
By Monday night less than 50 percent of the Chihuahua ballots had
been counted and results in. Cu|dad Juarez and other cities across the sprawling state were still uncertain, the sources said.
The PAN is the largest of Mexico’s opposition parties. The leftist United Socialist Party reportedly trailed a distant third in the Chihuahua voting
The government network reported decisive victories for the PRI in the states of Durango, Campeche, Michoacan and Zacatecas.
The reports could not be independently confirmed, however, and PAN spokesmen claimed their party had won in the state capital of Durango by a landslide.
The elections are viewed as a major test of the PRI’s strength seven months after President Miguel de la Madrid took office with a pledge to carry out what he called the “moral renovation'' of Mexico.
Strict import controls and other austerity measures imposed by de la Madrid to combat Mexico's worst recession since the 1930’s have been widely criticized by both leftist and conservative politicians.
The PRI lias been the governing party in Mexico for 54 years.
Murder suspect flees before police arrival
HOUSTON (AP) - A 20-year-old parolee accused with two others of fatally stabbing four young men during the robbery of a popular amusement center fled from his girlfriend's house moments before officers arrived, authorities said.
Wharton County sheriff’s officers were still looking today for Kenneth Ray Ransom, who reportedly was seen in Wharton on Sunday. Wharton has been charged with capital murder.
Meanwhile, the other two suspects, arrested less than a day after the murders, have shown no remorse about the killings, police say.
Richard James Wilkerson, 19, and his cousin, James Edward Randall, 16, signed “businesslike" confessions Monday and outlined their roles in the murders of four employees at Malibu Grand Prix, said Detective J.C.
Tbs confessions of Wilkerson and Randall revealed teat the slayings wore premeditated, Mosier said.
The suspects even had planned how they would separate the employees to make the killings more efficient and -aw*"**— the victims' chances of restating, hi said.
Wilkerson, who before his firing last month from the games park was a
supervisor of three of the four victims, was charged with capital murder and ordered held without heil.
Wilkerson'! cousin, James Edward Randall, 16, was being held at the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department. Authorities said they would ask a juvenile court judge today to certify him as an adult so he can be charged formally for his alleged role in the crime and murders.
Ransom, who was paroled from the Texas Department of Corrections last October after serving 19 months of a four-year sentence for auto theft, was spotted at his girlfriend’s house in Wharton, about IO miles southwest of Houston, but eluded officers.
Investigators said Ransom apparently saw officers in the neighborhood and escaped before they got to the house.
“Eventually we're going to get him," homicide U. H.W. Kersten said Monday.
The bodies of the four employees were discovered Friday morning at the arcade. Detective Taro Ladd said the three suspects allegedly entered the entertainment center shortly after midnight Thursday, looted a safe and cash drawers and killed four employees after a violent struggle.Pilots train to see dangers of altitude
PEASE AIR FORCE BASE, N.H. (AP) - The world at 35,000 feet is a giddy, dangerous (dace where euphoria can give way to suffocation in seconds.
In the thin air seven miles above the earth, oxygen deficiency — known as hypoxia — can begin with a sense of wellbeing, then befuddle its victim with confused, pleasant thoughts. Death follows quickly.
Each day, Air Force pilots are sent into this potentially deadly atmosphere — without leaving the ground.
The Air Force maintains high altitude chambers at Pease and 16 other air bases around the country to train and reacquaint flyers with the subtle symptoms of hypoxia and other hazards of high altitude flying.
The .sessions, including classroom training and a two-hour chamber “flight," are part of a growing awareness that physical training, diet and psychological factors are as important to a pilot as a well-maintained aircraft.
“Back in the '60s the pilot was worried about his equipment. We didn’t really know how important the human factors were," says Capt. Ernest Pritchard, head of the Pease training unit. “Now we're on the leading edge of technology and we're beginning to test those limits in human factors."
The need for such training was illustrated in May when a West German executive jet with a crew of three mysteriously flew 1,600 miles off course and crashed into the North Atlantic.
The I>earjet 25D was on a flight from Vienna to Hamburg when it failed to land and continued on at 43,000 feet while ground controllers and chase planes tried without success to contact the crew.
The plane apparently ran out of fuel arid crashed 200 miles south of Iceland Officials theorize the crew was long dead — the victims of a malfunctioning oxygen system.
A similar mystery claimed the life of Louisiana State University football coach Robert * Bo" Rein in 1980. Rein was in a private plane flying from Shreveport to Baton Rouge. The plane climbed to 41.000 feet, then fell into the Atlantic, 1,400 miles off course.
Officials said the accident may also have been caused by a gradual hypoxia that civilian pilots are not trained to recognize.
To help flyers spot the symptoms. the Air Force has its pilots strap on oxygen masks and sit in the special chamber that can duplicate conditions in the stratosphere.
Air is pumped out. bringing the chamber to the equivalent of 35.000 feet The chamber is then
brought down to 25,000 feet, and the flyers are asked to remove their masks.
At first there are no obvious signs. Breathing is easy; the class turns its attention to s page of math and logic problems. But after a minute a certain lightheaded feeling appears, followed by a tingling sensation and visual changes.
These early symptoms are followed by more serious ones. But lack of coordination, numbness and tunnel vision can be belied by a sense of well being. The students are all smiles; if left unattended they would be unconscious in three lo five minutes.
The chamber's attendants, wearing masks and trailing air hoses, don’t let things get that far.
“How are you doing, No. 4,” an attendant asks an Air National Guard captain who is studying his math problems with great concentration.
“Pretty good,” the captain answers, with a wide grin.
Hypoxia isn’t the only hazard of high altitude flight. As the air in the chamber thins, air and trapped gases in the human body expand. This is most embarrassingly noticable in the lower intestinal tract.
Instructors stress the dangers of consuming carbonated beverages and gaseous foods There have been cases where a sudden (^pressurization in an aircraft’s catan has doubled a pilot over in pain, leaving him incapable of flying the plane
There are more dramatic demonstrations. The lights are dimmed and cards of dull hues of red, green and blue are handed out. When the gas masks are strapped back on, the colors become vivid — graphic proof that oxygen improves color perception.
The class is later put rn a smaller room adjoining the main chamber. A valve is popped and the altitude goes from 8,000 feet to 18.000 feet in a second, bringing a sharp explosion that leaves the room rn a fog of water vapor. The change mimics a sudden (^pressurization.
The Air Force has been training pilots in high altitude chambers since World War II. But the service has developed a new course of study that includes lectures on diet, drinking, exercise and sleep to help maintain a high level of fitness Capt. Donald Flanagan, a member of the Air Force's Biomedical Science Corps says the stress on a pilot’s physical conditioning comes after the Air Force began to delve deeper into accidents caused by pilot error
