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 wetlands. But I will mate a film that's objective," sayi the bearded, sandy- haired six-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," Fogel said in an interview at his home here. "J was in the Florid* 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 different purposes. "The citizens got the knowl- 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 bis 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, Fla. 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 7%-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 Jzaak Walton League. Six months of planning and more than 200 letters have gone uito the effort. Bathtub sailors splash today Regatta season's finale on Manitoba river K »~' U^Jis city Phoenix, Sat., Ang. 15,1970 0 The Arizona Republic 25 58 66 65 62 67 60 67 62 .05 84 48 70 76 .75 67 60 55 73 61 - New York Times WINNIPEG, Manitoba Bath Salts, a new breed of Canadian sailors, will wind up their regatta season here today with a 8-mile race on the Red River. These skipper* 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 t u b w o m e n may equip their craft with as many sails as they wish, but motors must not exceed 7 horsepower. Flotation aids such as pontoons, water slds, paddle wheels and hydrofoils may be used, but the tub must draw at least 4 inches of water when the captain and motor are installed. Helmsmen must wear life jackets, be able to swim at least 200 yards and be accompanied by an escort vessel. racing was launched in Nanaimo, B.C., in 1967. It turned out to be such good clean fun that the sport has spread inland from the Pacific Coast. This year, a number of Canadian cities have taken the plunge and skippers from the United States 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, Nanaimo put 235 bathtubs into the water, including several from California, one from Mexico and one skippered by th« winner of'the Australian championship, which was held for the first time this year. In Australian bathtub racing, outboard motors are limited to 6 horsepower. The Nanaimo race course, which' covers 36 miles of choppy sea between NWWirno and Vancouver, Is dwisldered the toughest fln the professional circuit. lift CONDITIONING Nil ISTIMATIS Backed By Century Old Tradition of Fine Craff$man»hip American AIR CONDITIONING CO. 4011 N. 33rd Ave. 2*3-1231 CUP I BRINO TO MARYVALI SHOPPING CITY I •• a full size A-frame "Sea (he A-frame model displayed at Maryvale •Shopping Cify, 52nd Ave. * Wait Indian School thru August 26th !
