Fiat organization founded in 1969 by George c. Kiskad Don president of Marine chartering co. Of san fran Cisco and or. Jerold m. Low Enstein director of the Pacific Institute of nuclear Medicine is currently in the midst of a membership drive. As a result society membership at the new year was about the rapidly growing san Francisco Chap Ter numbers 350 members. And a second local chapter has been formed in Hawaii. We Hope to develop inter National political said Francis a. Martin jr., a Sag Francisco advertising Man who is chairman of the society s Board of directors. We expect to exert a drum fire of Protection on behalf of the resources of the sea that fact High sounding phrases of people who prefer words to action that s anything but the oceanic society judged by its initial growth the Bay area. Tiie society so far has at to rafted membership that is notably activist. And the oceanic leadership seems determined that the activist must be knowledgeable and skilled not merely Good intentioned. Sao Bay and the Waters of the Golden Gate have been the proving grounds for the ideas of foun Ders Kiskaddon and Lowen Stein and those who have Fol Lowed them in oceanic society leadership. Yachtsman John Vogley of 60s Colton blvd., Oakland is an example of oceanic society membership. Vogley. A member of the Oakland planning commis Siofu and owner of a i a foot Sloop spends part of his ship Board hours in the tedious Job of faking chemical samples of san Francisco Bay water. At other times he voluntarily uses the boat to ferry scientists out to the Faral me is Oakland Yachtsman John Vogley at Helm he soils on oceanic society Bay and Ocean tasks lands. And he is always on the Alert for evidence of pollution on the Bay. Moil important he knows what to do about it if he finds it. In order to participate in the much needed water Sam pling program Vogley had to take a several months Long course of instruction in collecting meaningful samples. These periodic samples properly collected Over a full Range of seasonal changes is something government Agen cies responsible for water pol Lution control have not been Able to carry out As fully As they believe is necessary. A similar pollution patrol is conducted by Niety Mem Bers flying private aircraft Over the Bay. Again Volun Teers properly trained can do a Job that government budgets cannot be stretched to encompass. It is All too evident that our governments unaided cannot Saia Lawrence a. Macdonald the society s development director. The areas to be surveyed monitored and protected Are simply too vast the human activity too Complex and far Flung the equipment and skills required too expensive for anything but a lip service approach by the agencies charged with responsibility for protecting the Ocean related said Macdonald. Fortunately the human and other resources so urgently needed actually exist ready at Macdonald maintains. These include yachtsmen and others operating Small watercraft and Light aircraft who May be found in areas of densest population and Indus trial development precisely the places where the problems Are the greatest. The oceanic society is endeavouring to get these sea people individuals their skills their equip ment their time and their concerns. Into an integrated program to answer that cry for that Many involved with the sea Are begin Ning to hear More clearly each Day. The society s chapters for example Emo Oay a us Nairn Fleet principle wherein volunteers who own or have a Cess to Power boats sailboats or aircraft contribute their time skills and equipment in society said Alfred Meyer satiety presi Dent and editor in chief of the organization s new Pacific Magazine. We want our Magazine to be to the oceanic society what the christian1 science Monitor newspaper is to the Christian science Church a publication that is excellent in its own right and that is not necessarily full of propaganda or pros we have a feeling that most of the major human events that will take place on the Globe during the near future will take place around the Pacific Meyer said. There simply in t any voice for that area and for the people of the the first edition of the new Pacific Magazine covering a Broad Field of the Peoples the Pacific Basin is expected to be in the hands of society membership in the Spring. Chapters of the society will hopefully follow to population centers not Only around the Pacific but worldwide Meyer said. Since its founding in the Bay area san Francisco society members have acted As the experimental Model on which other chapters May Pat tern their own organizations. As an organization entered about the Marine Environ ment the san Francisco Chap Ter plans a 1974 program the society believes is one of the most comprehensive bold and exciting Ever offered in the environmental and at the heart of it All is knowledge and the attempt to increase this knowledge.

The air patrol of Light plane flyers and observers undergoes similar training prior to undertaking its similar tasks from above. Fundamental training keyed to the activity involved is planned for each Active facet of the society program. Among these is the Farallo patrol. This activity transports biologists of the Point Reyes Bird Observatory and their provisions to and from the Farallo islands. It s a weekly trip during half the year eve try during us remainder. Biologists were originally transported to the islands by the coast guard when that government Agency maintained a manned Light House at that location. Since the Lighthouse was automated the coast guard transportation was ended and the Volun tary taxi sen ice of the society was begun. If the transportation was provided commercially it would Cost an estimated a year which is about the amount allocated by the fed eral government for the entire Cost of maintaining this unique and important wildlife Refuge and ecological study Center according to Macdon Ald.
