The 25-year-old graduate of the University of Hawaii, who began studying biology but wound up a freelance writer, expects to give lectures along the way and make a movie of the trip as still another piece of documentary evidence on the extent of pollution. "I'm very hopeful I won't find all pollution, I hope there's a lot of beauty to be seen in the marshlands, bays and wettoodB. But I will make a film that's objective," say* the bearded, sandy- haired sijf'footer. "I happen to feel actually that if you give people this correct information they will take action and I've seen this happen many times," Fpgel said in an interview at his home here. "I was in the Florida Everglades when the jetport was going to be put in. We had two government agencies if not working against each other at least working for differ- edge; they were informed and the jetport was halted because it was proven the result would be disastrous for ecology." He hopes to do the same when he returns from his trip. His wanderings will take him through inland waterways beginning at the 79th Street boat basin in New York City and taking him on to Miami. With the motion picture and still camera equipment, including an underwater camera, Fogel's taking plenty of canned food, fresh eggs and fruit, a sleeping mattress, tent and cooking equipment. There's a wet suit top of the type used by divers, so he'll stay warm and dry even when the 17H> foot kayak does not, and a suit, which "I'll bundle up and press wherever I have to make a speech." Fogel figures to make 25 miles a day, six days a week, Sundays off, with "a hot meal and a warm bed" at night provided, by members of local League of Women Voters groups and the Igaak Walton League.

[damning and Bathtub sailors splash today Regatta season's finale on Manitoba river Phoenix, Sat., Aug. 15. 1970 u. ».- i> W "v£ The Arizona Republic 25 New York Tltnts Service Manitoba — Bath Sab, a flew breed of Canadian tailors, Will wind tip their regatta seasoft here today with & fknlle face on the Red River. These skippers actually race in bathtubs or unreasonable facsimiles. However, the racing rules are strict. Genuine metal or porcelain tubs are specified, but fiberglass or plastic tubs are allowed if they are molded from a regulation model. Tubmen and tubwomen may equip their craft with as many sails as they wish, but motors must not exceed 7 horsepower. Flotation aids such as pontoons, water skis, paddle wheels and hydrofoils may be used, but the tub must draw at least 4 inches of water when the captain and motor are i n s t a 1 1 e d. Helmsmen must wear life jackets, be able to swim at least 200 yards and be accompanied by an escort vessel. _ Bathtub racing was launched in NOTamio, B.C., ffl 1967. It turned flat to be such good clean fun that the sport has spread inland from the Pacific Coast. this year, a number of Canadian cittH have taken the pluttge and skippers from the tfttlted Slates have entered the competition. The city of Sicamous, also in British Columbia, was the first to challenge Nanaimo's claim as the "bathtub capital of the entire world" by holding a "world championship bathtub race" on May 17. Nanaimo was' indignant, and threats of retaliation were heard. But there were more wounds to come. Deep in the interior, in Cornwall, Ontario, a bathtub series was held from June 29 to July 5, Stories of fleets of as many as 60 tubs churning up the St. Lawrence Seaway, of a Powder- puff Derby for women and a special race for persons under 21 outraged Nanaimoites. Retribution was swift and sure. From July 17 to 21, Na- flaimo put 235 bathtubs into the water, including several from California, one from Mexico and one skippered by the winner of the Australian championship, which was Held for the first tints this year. In Australian bathtub racing, outboard mdtwrs are limited to 6 horsepower. The Nanaimo race course, which covers 36 miles of choppy sea between Nanaimo and Vancouver, I* considered the toughest 0ft th# firofes- stonfrl circuit^ ^ ^ AIR CONDITIONING MltlSTlMAtti Backed By Century Old Tradition of Fine Craftsmanship mencan AIR CONDITIONING CO. 4011 N. 33rd Avt. 2*3.1131 CLIP I IRINQ TO MARYVALE SHOPPING CITY a to" size A-frame vacation home. ^ «»•* *^ ««»•• «<*>** oWt' r^-""" HtW" Otl*><* 1W», ttia. »«• «t»» ,**•«• tree*. «T<* t4e*» cl ,»*«< "Ss« th» A-frams model displayed af Maryvale Shopping Ci»y, 52nd Ave. s West Indian Sehbol thru Auguit SOUTHWEST PROPERTIES, 955-6500 4219 East Indian School Road / Phoenix, Arizona 85018 I Mastercratt Furniture Factory Authorized The recent truck & construction strikes have held up deli- | very from several factories and their inventories are bulging.
