Nineteen seventy-four opened with the announcement from Ron, aboard the Apollo, of a tremendous technical breakthrough: the Introspection Rundown. Resulting from research and piloting done in the closing months of 1973, this powerful series of audited actions locates and corrects the causes of intro-
version; with these factors handled the person can again extrovert, see his environment and therefore handle and control it.
In February of 1974, Ron formed a music and dance troupe on the Apollo to provide entertainment and goodwill at the ship's Spanish and Portuguese ports of call. He personally instructed the musicians and dancers in artistic presentation, music, composition, sound, arranging and recording. Much of the tech he taught them is now found in the HCO Bulletins of the Art Series, contained in the Technical Bulletins volumes.
In October the Apollo crossed the Atlantic to Bermuda, then sailed on to the islands of the Caribbean.
