2 f., t TiiE FIFill HORSINAN OF TiiE APOCALYPSE UFOS: A HISTORY 1954: OCTOBER by Loren E. Gross Copyright 1991 Fremont, CA

3 .. DEDICA.TICN This history series is dedicated to the memory of Francis R. ''Dick" Scobee of Cle Elum, Washington, Mission Commander of the space shuttle Challenger and a "shirt tail" relative on my Mother's side of the faiiiily.

4 Acknowledgments: I would like to thank pioneer UFOlogist Vincent Gaddis for the gift of his collection of UFO newspaper clippings covering the early years of the UFO mystery, as well as George Early who took the time and the trouble to copy considerable material for my use from his UFO files, and Stanton Friedman, who 1'.'3.S equally helpful by permitting access to his extensive library of aerial pheonmena. Furthermore, Lucius Farish has provided some vital items, good advice, and strong encouragement. Similarly, Dr. Richard F. Haines gave a lot of help, as did Lawrence Fawcett. In addition, Claude Hauge of France and Hilary Evans of England pro ~ided newspaper clippings from Europe. Tom Benson of New Jersey was kind enough to share so~e rare UFO newsbulletins which ~ght have been otherwise unobtainable. Finally, it "~uld be difficult to overestimate the assistance given by Harv Tayor, ~orthern California director of MUFON who currently operates the UFO Data Research & Intelligence Center, Exhibit &,Library, 500 Ninth St., Suite G, P.O.

13 THE FIFTH HORSEMAN OF THE APOCALYPSE UFOs a History 1954: October Another cult. Still another UFO cult was making itself known in the U.S. at this time, its fotmder a :-larian Keech, a Utah resident who claimed to have established contact with outer space entities by using "automatic WTiting." The messages attracted considerable press attention because they predicted a vast physical disaster to take place on a specific date. According to a newspaper story: "Lake City tvill be destroyed by a flood from Great Lake just before dawn, December 21st, according to a suburban housetvife. ~frs. Marian Keech of 847 West School Street says the prophecy by automatic WTi ting, she says. The messages, according to ; Irs. Keech, are sent to her by superior beings from a planet called 'Clarion.' These beings have been visiting the Earth, she says, in what we call 'Flying Saucers.' During their visits, she says, they have observed faj.ilt lines in the Earth's crust that foretoken the deluge. Mrs. Keech reports she was told the flood \vill spread to form an inland sea stretching from the Artie Circle to the Gulf of Hexico." 1..4.s English cult expert Kevin Me Clure observed, Keech's movement fit a classic pattern: "It had a communicator, an explanation for the whole UFO mystery, a message of great importance, and a task for its members --not so JllUch to publicise the disaster, as to prepare themse 1 ves to strrvi ve it." 2. ~ Unforttmately for those people seeking to make the UFO subject respectable, the Keech group would receive considerable publicity during the count down in December. "Churchills." A "cigar volant," or what some Frenchmen called a "Churchill," an affectionate allusion to the famed British Prime mnister who was ahvavs seen with his mouth clamped on a big roll of tobacco; was reported on the first of the month' at Blanzy, France, at 1:00 in the afternoon. According to two bricklayers, H. Romain Sebastiani and "1. Brtmo Buratto, they vietved a cigar-like object that flew with a whistling sound. This "cigar volant" was on the small side, however, an object the men said was about 3 meters long and some 80 milimeters in diameter. The pointed nose, the witnesses claimed, was a yellow color and the remainder of the body brown. A pair of long appendages were said to be attached to the object's nose section. (This UFO seems unlike any other that was reported so there is a chance the story is a hoax) 3. Later that afternoon(4:00 p.m.) at Bry Nord, France, a glowing white object was said to have dived at a man and his dog. Both were reportedly "paralyzed" during the experience. 4. Dhubri, India. ive have no time of day for the report but it seems a tvoman in Dhubri, in India, notified the local police when she saw a "luminous plate" flying in the sky, the "plate" trailing something tve assume was smoke. This "plate" was seen landing in a field and then taking to the air again. No other detail was given. 5.

14 2.. "Little man crosses the road." Another case for which we have no time of day is a report from two motorists who were travelling in the vicinity of StJean de Angely. M.Estier and am. Phelippeau, both French businessmen, had left the town of Royan and were speeding down the highway when to their surprise they saw a "little man" cross the road some distance ahead. No details are available but the two witnesses were impressed enough to stop their car so they could watch as the strange figure fled into a forested area. 6. October 1st. (7:00 p.m.) Jussy, France. A hoax? According to our source, at Jussy, France, a French farmer informed the local authorities a white-colored machine landed near him and a couple of "very tall" beings dressed in white-colored clothes came out of the craft and made gestures to him. The farmer said he ran away. 7. Jacques Vallee learned that subsequent investigations determined that the report was a hoax. 8. The "shooting star" that landed. It was getting late(lo:oo) the evening of October 1st as French fireman Jean Dufix returned to his home in Bergerac. A streak of light lit up the heavens and M. Dufix thought for a moment he was witnessing a shoo1:ing star, but this object was close, too close, in fact it appeared the "meteor" had impacted in his own backyard since a red glow illuminated the area. As a fireman M. Du- fix's immediate impression was that his property was ablaze. A neighbor, M. Jean Lebonne, evidently attracted by all the light, peered out a window and saw a strange, disc-shaped, object about three meters in diameter, "parked" in M. Dufix' s yard. The thing was motionless, resting on three legs. M: Dufix quickly arrived on the scene and saw for himself the mysterious object. The UFO did not stay long. It soon rose, became luminous again(it had apparently lost its glowing appearance when it touched down) and shot away at a fabulous velocity. 9. Brauges, France.,At the same time as M. Dufix' s experience, a M. Gilbert Prudent was driving near Louhan, France, when his headlights lit up a glowing mass parked on the shoulder of the road up ahead. As he closed the distance between him and the "glowing mass," M. Prudent could make out something of its shape. There appeared to be a "flat portion" and a "mushroom-shaped" section on top. f\efore his car could draw abreast of the thing, its glow dinrned and with a shrill, highpitched, SOlD'I.d, the thing lat.mched itself vertically into the sky. 10. M. George Ollivier, a French railroad worker who lived in the town of Criel, made a "spaceman costtune" out of odds and ends. A1 though crude, the result managed to scare the socks off many of his neighbors.

15 3 "Daned craft." October 1st. It was reported by a M. Nicolas that a "daned craft" lan"~ed at a spot beteen some tracks and a road near Louhans, France. The craft had windows or same kind of ports in the side that were lit by yellow-colored light. 11. The first day of October the Swedish Defense Mi.ni.stry requested a secret investigation of UFOs. Donald Keyhoe states this as a fact although he provides no further data or a source. 12. "Voluminous circular mass." October 2nd. At Anduze, France, on October 2nd, am. Nicetta Edmond spotted what he said was a "voluminous circular mass" in the sky. This "mass" seemed to be moving, evidently revolving, since red and blue lights being emitted from the mass were only visible at regular intervals.. While under observation the mysterious mass lost altitude, rocking back and forth as it descended. Several others besides M. Edmond viewed the phenomenon. 13. More and more. The sheer mmilier of UFO sightings in France did what no one UFO sighting ever accomplished however impressive it may have been. Vallee observed:"the 'flying saucer' began to lose its academic character and entered the experience of daily life. It completely monopolized the press and general conversation." 14. Levroux, France. October 2nd. A disc-shaped object buzzed the rooftops of Levroux on the 2nd and was reported to the local police by two of the village women. The reports, made independ~tly, describe the object as three meters in diameter and luminous. 15. Jonct:es, France. October 2nd. A brief report mentions tt o "creatures" at a particjjlar location, and after a period of two hours a low flying, red glowing, object was seen in the same area. 16. Croix D' Epine, France. (10:00 p.m.) "Fainted while telling the story." Nineteen-year-old Ernest Delattre was roaring down the highway on his motor scooter near Croix D' Epine 10:00 p.m. on October 2nd, when he noticed a brightly lit, egg-shaped mass dropping down out of the night sky. The UFO came to rest next to the roadway which enabled Delattre to estimate its size. It seemed as big as a bus. As he approached, Delattre thought he saw small, dark, shapes doing something in the vicinity of the UFO, but before he got too close the mystery craft shot skyward, giving off different colors of light, changing from one color to another in turn:orange, blue, and a gray-blue. ~t. Delattre was so excited he fainted while telling the story to the authorities. 17. Dogs hear UFO? A big cigar-shaped object soared low over the countryside near Poncey-sur Plgnon, France on,october 2nd. It was about 8:00p.m.!n the area was a ~me. Guainet who was doing her farm chores. Accompanied by the family dogs, ~e. Guainet went about her work milking the cows and didn't

16 4 noticed anything until the hounds ran towards the woods, baying in excitement for some unknown reason. The woman dashed after the animals and saw the cause of the dogs' agitation. Coming into view was a huge, illuminated spindle. 18. Apparently the dogs heard the UFO before it became visible. Vallee refers to other reports on this day but gives no details:megrine Coteaux, TUnisia; and one in Scotland. 19. Trying to make sense of the whirlwind of reports may be impossible although Vallee and Michel mde an attempt. One source of information on the wave declared that the French Air Ministry officially launched an investigation on October 2nd after "267" French citizens haq come forward to report UFOs but undoubtly there were many more too shy to say a word. What evidently moved authorities toward some formal plan of action, besides the number of UFO witnesses, was that sightings were being made in every corner of the country and the fact that many respectable people were "seeing things." 20. Unfortunately the data that was being accumulated left much to be desired. Pmerican UFO expert Ted Bloecher complained:"french reporters usually appear to be more interested in discussion than investigation." 21. October 3rd. A "long object," a flying cigar perhaps, zoomed over Banyals-sur-Her, France, on October 3rd. It emitted flames of green and red, ac<:ording to the newspaper ~ Dimanche A front page story. October 3rd. London's ~Dispatch. So much was happening in France the English press was forced to take note. Actually the story was too big. The London Sunday D~atch could only print a summary on its front page. With the situat1on unc ear, errors and the lack of detail was inevitable in the reporting. The ~atch informed its readers: ~ear Grenoble farmer Joseph Habrat saw a luminous engine moving at great speed. '~s daughter, Yvette, said it came to within 600 yards with a 'gentle snoring sound.' "A little later t11o thousand people saw a dozen of them 'dancing a ballet' in the sky. "Two people at Rixheim, near Mulhouse, watched a cigar-shaped luminous engine surrounded by twelve smaller satellite cigars. '1Uhree holiday-makers on Carry-le-Rouet beach saw a half-cigar over the port. Three women who saw it described it as leaving a trail of smoke. "A flying mushroom was reported by a lorry-driver and his friend at Faremontiers. It was in a field and had three tripod-like legs. '"I tried to approach it,' he said, 'but about four hundred -~'eet away I was stopped by a ray. I felt little prickings. Hy head swam. I had a cold sweat. I could not move.' "The mushroom then rose slowly and flew off. "Dr. Martinet, skin disease specialist at Chambery, watched a flying saucer manoeuvring in the sky for four minutes. ' "In the gulf of Gascony the mate and two seamen of a cargo boat saw a moving disc with a greenish glow.

17 5 "Actress Hichele Morgan saw a luminous disc over the Invalides air terminal in Paris. ''There have been three reports of men from another planet landing in France. "At Vienne a farmer said the visitor, who wore a kind of diving suit, caressed his arm. "A woman at Drome saw 'a being about the size of a child and with a human face. He seemed to be wrapped in a transparent sack.' "Both visitors to France returned to their saucers and took off vertically. "A little helmated and booted man with a revolver firing 'luminous and paralysing rays' was seen by the foreman of a quarry at Marcillysur-Vienne and six of his workmen. "A whislting sound drew the attention of two men at Blanzy to a cigar-shaped machine in a freshly ploughed field. "The men said the machine was about six feet in length. The pointed tip was yellow, the rest of the cigar brown. "As they approached the machine it rose vertically. "A policeman, a grocer, and eight other people saw an incandescent 'cigar' at Agen. "A 'brilliant ball' appeared to a stallkeeper at Belesta. He said it left a trail of grey smoke as it shot through the sky..." 23. The author of the aformentioned account noted that at the san:e time that day(october 3, 1954) 40 miles away an amazing "sky display" was taking place above a wooded area near the village of }.1arcoign, France, before 20 witnesses. That so many people at the same moment at different locations should hav11 a similar hallucination boggled the writer's mind, so much so he consulted a psychiatrist assigned to the Law Oourts of the Seine, a Dr. Gouriou. "Is mass 'l:l.elusion upon this scale possible?" The above question was put to the mental health expert who replied he had never known a flying saucer to play a role in any of his patient's hallucinations, and that hallucinations were usually sounds rather than visual images. Horeover, when on rare occasions visual disorders did occur, such problems were nearly ahvays due to toxemia or cerebral lesions which would certainly help to rule out the possibility of a ''mass visual delusion." 24. Dr. Gouriou then wisely ended the interview with:"... I for one think that those who maintain that they have seen saucers do so in good faith, unless. of course they are trying to hoax us. But we must never forget that whatever a normal human being sees, he, to a considerable extent internrets, and this fact alone renders al!lluman evidence fallible." 25.,. The "delusion" at Marcoign;. (also at 8:00 p.m.) A UFO was seen by people over a wide area as it approached the Gouillet woods outside the village of Marcoing where it hovered above the trees. One might assume the UFO was the same object seen earlier at Clereng 35 miles to the north. The press quoted a woman witness at Marcoing:"It was circular, and red-orange in color. A little below this immobile object, and as though suspended from it, she saw a s~ll spot of light with a kind of seesaw movement." 26. A curious fact about the 20 witnesses at Harcoign was that they consisted entirely of the local police force and their families. According to these people the UFO remained in place over the \iood until 8:30p.m. when

18 6 some changes occurred, the circular UFO taking on a spindle shape(perhaps 1t rotated) while the small spot of light below it disappeared. After this transfonnat10n, the UFO rooved away in the direction of Amiens. 27. Amiens, France. (Approximately 8:33p.m.) A brightly-lit orange-colored "I'IUshroom hat" sailed into view near the town of Amiens about 8:30 p.m. One witness was quoted as saying:,he upper part of"the 'mushroom' appeared to vibrate as it changed color from violet to greenish, while short tables' of some kind hung from the bottom surface." 28 "Three other witnesses in the area, Mme. NenyMansart and t-1. & ~fme. Delarouxe, had just left Herissart village on a drive to Miens when they spotted the UFO descending out of the clouis. The thing dropped to the ground about 150 yards from them and at that range appeared to be an object 25 feet in diameter and ''rrlushroomed-shaped." After reaching grormd level, the strange object followed their car for a time and then took off in the direction of the village of Riannville. 29. Biderstroff, France. (9:00p.m.) Emitting lights of a purple and green hue, "something" moved about in tl}e night sky over Biderstroff area. At one point it swooped close to the earth.. ~ as if to land in a stand of trees, but as it other cases nothing!!1\lch happened because when a witness rushed to the spot the thing left in a h,urry. 30. Rve, France. (9:iO p.m.) An orange-colored UFO chased a car driven by M. George Gallant for 8 Kilometers and only broke off the pursuit l.ffien the town limits of Rve \vere reached. Gallant's wife and son were passengers in the car and also witnesses the phenomen~. 31. Lievin, France. (9:25p.m.) A spindle-shaped object hovered low in the sky near Lievin and was under observation long enough to attract scores of witnesses. Those that watched the obje ~ said they could see a smaller body "detached itselp' from the larger and then dive down to a quick touchdown on the plateau of Lorette. The small body then rose to rejoin its "parent." <hce reunited, this odd phenomenon headed south out of sight. 32. ~lilly-la-foret, France. (9:30p.m.) A pair of "big stars" danced in the sky just east of Paris ~t 9:30 p.m. and then moved south. ~1eanwhile, a ''half-moon-sh,!l"ped" object was viewed hovering above Hilly for a time and then it dipped to a lower altitude where witnesses could see that the thing was:".. a kind of reddish cigar accompanied below by a small shinning ring." 33. Ronsenac, France. (10:45 p.m.) Flatten and scorched grass. Ground traces highlight the next case that took place at Ronsenac where the witness was 23-year-old Jean Allary. He spotted a big circular object some 3-4 feet thick gliding on the grormd. As the object glided along, a number of luminous spots were visible on its surface, but when the thing rose and flew away the entire object became luminous. An area of rrrass about 6 yards wide was found flatt~ned and scorch~d. 34.

19 7 Benet, France. (ll:oo p.m.) For several minutes a red UFO, its size 6 by 12 feet, was observed motionless over a swampy area by a French couple, ~1. and Mme. Guillemoteau. The observation ended when the UFO shot straight up out oi sight. 35. Gueblin, France. (11:45 p.m.) The last report of the day came from Gueblin where a H. Gilcher and a 1-1. Domant watched as a disc,casting off a feeble green glow, set down iri a field. Others on the road nearby also witnessed the landing. No one was brave enough to investigate Lavaux, France. (no lmown time) Perhaps the most bizarre tale of the day was M. Roger Barrault's, a resident of Lavaux, who told everyone he had enc01.mtered a singular being, a being with: "... brilliant eyes, arid an enormous moustache, who spoke Latin." 37. October 4th. More reaction in the English press. The London Daily Teleg~!!_ conunented: "Another outbreak of flying saucery brings stories ranging from the plausible to the childish. That mysterious aircraft of eccentric shape may have been seen is not disputed. There are secret lists, and not all of those \oj!'io suggest space-ships are necessarily irresponsible. Nor are circular aircraft without precedent. There was an American disc-winged aeroplane, and over forty years ago Capazza, -~ designed a lenticular airship which would have qualified as either a saucer or a cigar, according to one's viewpoint. Indeed, there is scarcely a limit to the shapes and sizes of these alleged machines. "All down the centuries people have reported prodigies in the sky. They usually have been what they expected, or feared, to see-devils, - nrurdered emperors, departed relatives, tmpleasant animals, under threat of war, embattled armies among the clouds. One can see things clearly in a dream, and can even hear complex yet recognisable music. Intra-cerebral illusions may persist, or exceptionally occur, while the subject is awake. Nowadays people still fear war and dread curious flying machines for what they may bring. Without denying the possibility that various odd aircraft exist, unlmown to millions and undescribed in technical papers, it is fair to assume that most stories of flying saucers, dishes, beer bottles, cigars and 'luminous engines' are the ghost stories of today." 38. America's Dr. l!enzel speaks out. On October 4th the word from Boston, Massachusetts, was: ''There is nothing 'in any degree' to justify the idea that we are 'suffering from a visitation' from outer space, says Dr. Donald H. Menzel." 39. France. October 4th. The wild stories continue. (no time lmown) A railroad employee living in Limoges, a H. Montagne, claimed a strange machine had landed on his property. No other details available. 40.

21 .~ l 9 Lezignan, France. (no time known) Yet another one of those brief touchdowns by a UFO was reported on the 4th. Truck drivers Andre Garcia and Andre Darzais were travelling a highway near the town of Lezignan when they saw a lldninous disc, an estimated 30 feet across, coast to a momentary landing. With a surge of power the disc soared skyward while emitting a burst of white light. 41. October 4th. Villers-les-Tilleue, France. (6:40 p.m.) A 10-year-old child named Bertieux told authorities he had seen a strange object on the grotmd, and a "figure" next to it. The object was, he said, "shaped like a tent." 42. October 4th. Cllaleix, France. (no time known) Extract from French Radioteletype: "A Dordogne farmer saw 'Martians again yesterday. According to him, they were two normal men, of European type, dressed in khaki overalls. They came down from an object which had landed in the vicinity, approached the farmer and shook his hand, asking him:'paris-nord?' Awed by stupefaction, the fanner was tmable to answer. The two strangers stroked his dog and boarded their engine. They lighted up some kind of electrical lighting and the apparatus flew away rapidly and noiselessly, without smoke or spark, at a dizzy speed. Owing to fog and semi-darkness, the witness was tmable to observe exactly, and gave the following description:the object had the trunk of a big cart, and the forme an oval 'oval soup-tureen' steamlined to the front." 43. October 4th. Tregon, france. (Evening)..,. When some people in Tregon sighted a strange object hovering above a hill top not,too far away, they jumped into a car and tried to approach the thing before it left the area. To their disappoin~ent the object took off momen~ later. 44. October 4th. ~legri t, France. (Evening) It was guessed that the object seen near Tregon was the same object that showed up at : legrit where a flat, metallic-looking, thing was seen hovering over a farm at a height of only 150 feet. The town of ~legrit is only 20 miles or so to the southwest of Tregon. 45. October 4th. Poncey, France. (~:00 p.m.) "Fourneret, come quickly!" The mayor of Poncey, M. Cazet, had invited several villagers to dine at his home the evening of October 4th. The men were eating and socializing when they were rudely interrupted at 8:00 p.m. as a messenger arrived with bad news for one of the mayor's guests, a 1-1. Fourneret, who learned his wife had suffered a bad fright and had fled to a neighbor's house. "Fourneret, come quickly," pleaded the messenger who was panting violently after a frantic ride on his bicycle. There was a mad scramble tom. Fourneret's neighbors, the Bouillers, as the mayor and the other men arotmd the table dropped their silverware and ran after Foutneret who was doing his best to get home as fast as oossible. When the'men arrived at the Bouiller's, they met some other people from the village that had gathered to render aid and comfort:~!. Girardo, M. Vincent, and Mme. Strasdot. H. Fourtneret found his

22 10 Yvette, terr1fied but otherwise O.K. Mme. Yvette's story follows: "It 1vas about 8:00 p.m. Night had already fallen. I walked over to the window to close the shutters and it was then that I saw the 'thing.' I happened to glance outside. "About 65 feet in front of the house, in ~I. Cazet' s field, a luminous body was swaying lightly in the air near the plum tree, as if getting ready to land. As near as I could judge it was about 10 feet in diameter, was an elongated form in a horizontal position and was of orange color. It glowed rather feebly, but enough to light the branches of the nearby trees. "Scared to death, I took my little one and we ran to Mme. Bouiller' s my neighbor, where we closed the door. ~1. Girardo and M. Vincent arrived by chance. Seeing our fright they asked what had happened. After we told them they armed themselves with rifles and ran toward the field. There was nothing there. But on examining the ground they found a fresh track proving that I had not been dreaming." 46. We have to make one correction here. The "track" left by the object was much more than that, it was a huge hole, a hole impressive enough to attract investigators from all over the country! The.crowd at the Bouiller's house went to the site of the supposed landing, and while they stood around talking, the Bouiller's 18-year-old son ran up bursting to tell what had happened to him moments earlier. Ignorarlt of the excitement at the Fourneret's, the youth exclaimed that a "luminous machine" of a greenish color had zoomed passed him as he approached the village on his way home. 47. More "landings." Abbeville, France. (no time known) Two people independently observed a ''big bee-hive" about the size of an auto on the ground near Abbeville. A figure in a "diving suit'' 1vas also seen. 48. Dinan, France. (no time known) A witness reported a landed "saucer" and two child-sized figures nearby. 49. Bergerac, France. (no time kn01vn) A ten foot wide luminous disc was reported on the ground by two people near Bergerac. The object had three "legs," or 1vhat one might call landing supports. No figures were noted in the vicinity. 50. <ktober 5th. Loctudy, France. (4:00a.m.) "Eyes as large as raven eggs." ' The making of bread requires that bakers be early risers and M.P. Lucas, a baker at Loctudy, was no exception. At 4:00a.m. October 5th 14. Lucas was preparing for a day's work by drawing a pail of water from a well when he saw

23 11 a parked circular machine near by from which a ''hairy dwarf" emerged. With a face covered with hair and with eyes the size of raven. eggs, the little creature must have been quite a sight but H. Lucas said he permitted the "rlwarf" to approach close enough to touch him lightly. The creature then uttered some sounds that may have been words in an alien language. After that the "drar~' climbed aboard his machine and flew away. 51. (Jacques Vallee suggests that suspicious similarities between this case and one at the town of Roverbella indicates a hoax). October 5th. I.e Mans, France. (6:30 a.m.) A hour and a half later some men driving to work on Rt.N23 near I.e Mans passed a luminous object resting on the ground next to the highway. At the same moment the men suffered a strange sensation, a "prickling and a sort of paralysis." With a flash of green light, the object was seen to lift off and speed away over the treetops. 52. October 5th. Beaumont, France. Another "curious sensation." (3:45 p.m.) Several witnesses were amazed as an object descended out of the daytime sky. The thing was glowing, but with less and less intensity as it approached. As the distance was reduced to about 150 meters the witnesses experienced a "curious sensation," a paralysis of some sort,also a smell, like nitrobenzine was noticed. 53. Poncy, the day after. Word of Mme. Fourneret' s experience spread fast. l'ihen they first heard.about the incident, the local police suspected a ''Martian hoax" by Poncy teenagers, but the lawmen soon found that various independent witnesses scatter~ throughout the countryside had seen an aerial object that matched ~!me. Fourneret's story as to the time and direction of travel. ~-.. Capt. Millet of the Semur-en-Au:xois detachment was impressed after making inquiries and visiting the site, so he briefed the Senior Commandant of Dijon, a ~!. Viala, who also visited Poncy, coming away intriqued. A professor from the University of Dijon showed up to satisfy his curiousity, as did Olarles Garreau, the newspaper reporter '"ho had made it his job to check out many of the reports being made during the '""'ve. Another French civilian of note, Aime Hichel, collaborated with Garreau. Finally, officers of the French Air Force arrived to investigate(the Air Force Commandant at Dijon, General de Olassey, took a personal interest in the case) The ''hole." Attention was centered on the ''hole" left by the UFO. No one who saw it came away unimpressed. The tear in the earth was five feet across with large clods of dirt scattered many feet beyond that. The edge of the hole was ragged with no "cut" marks detectable. Wriggling white worms were readily visible testifying to the freshness of the great wound in the ground. It was quite strange how the many roots exposed were not not sheared off in any manner. the extraction of dirt apparently done by some kind of huge vacuum clearner. 55.

24 12 October 5th. ~letz, France. (no time known) A metallic-like globe hung motionless in the sky above t-1etz, France, for three hours. A French army searchlight found it in the night heavens at an altitude of approximately 30,000 feet. 56. October 5th. Egypt. A few UFO reports were now coming in froi'l Egypt which de!'lostrated the southern movement of the 1954 wave. Hundreds of fellahs viewed a strange cigar-shaped object for 20 minutes as it maneuvered above Hehalla-el-Yobra; while at Behnay some objects of a similar configuration sped overhead trailing thick smoke, one of which blew up injuring a person on the ground and killing two cows. A village near the Suez Canal, East Kantara, was the site Qf a "rotating saucer" report by a Lt. Tewrik of the Egyptian military, who snapped a picture and sent a print to the Egyptian Army Public Relations office. The photo might have been the reason a local military commander, Admiral Youssef Hammad, requested pilots flying over Cario to keep an eye out for any strange phenomen. 57. October 6th. -~ Prague, Czechoslovakia. (no time known) Mysterious explosions in the sky caused excitement in the ref!fon of the Tatra r.fountains. Inhabitants living in that part of r.zechosl,.,vakia kept '!. "saucer watch." 58. Yugoslavia. (no time known) In formation, luminous, and very fast, numerous objects were reported high over Yugoslavia. 59. Extracts from French Radioteletype : "In the Biarritz area, several persons have seen at different hours mysterious round and oval objects, which were leaving luminous trails in the skv. ".~ Jsere farmer saw a 'huge flying orange section.' f-ie said that its top was luminous and a little later he saw it divide along its length into three smaller sections, which gradually disappeared. ".An inhabitant of the Lower Seine and!-fame sent a letter to a local netvspaper, stating that he had seen 'a big disc, from 8 to 10 meters in diameter, which was rotating on a certain spot, while sending out red and purple lights. The object was about 400 meters in height and gliding over him for more than 20 minutes." 60. October 6th. Chantannay, France. (dusk) A Paris couple, M. and ~Tme. Laroche, were travelling near Chantannay at sundown on the 6th when they witnessed the "landing of a fiery globle." No other detail is available. 61. October 6th. La Fere, France. (9:30 p.m.) A cigar-shaped object(an estimated 80 centimeters in its mid section) was noticed on the ground about 300 meters from an Army barracks at La Fere. Che soldier tried to approach thing but became paralyzed. 62.

26 14 October 6th. Villers-le-Lac, France. A balloon? (10:30 p.m.) A slow moving white light came out of the west and sailed to a point 100 yards away from the home of!-!me. Salabrine and her daughter on the outskirts of Villers-le-Lac. Having approached that close, and under observation by the two women, the thing in the sky was seen to be mainly a dark mass with a small white light underneath it. A shower of sparks issued from the object and after remaining motionless for a brief time, it moved away quickly. 63. October 7th. Beruges, France. (4:00 a.m.2 It was so early for the first UFO sighting on October 7th the witness, a farmer named M. Edward Thebault, was not yet up and about. A strong light woke him and he staggered to the window and with his sleepy eyes saw the source of the bright illumination, a glowing mass about nine feet in diameter resting on the road that ran by the farmhouse only a few yards away. M. Thebault flipped on the switch to his roomlight which apparently produced a reaction from the object. The object suddenly swept the area with a powerful beam. In a panic M. Thebault rushed to wake his father but by the til'le the two returned to the window to look out, the mysterious thing had disappeared. 64. October 7th. Plozevet, France. (no time known. Early morning?) A smoky, glowing, orange-colored, object appeared in the sky near the coastal village of Plozevet. Villagers claimed the UFO at one time dipped to an altitude of only 30 feet before moving away to the southeast. Numerous fisher.nen at sea also witnessed the phenomenon. 65. October 7th. Jettinggen, France. (Sunrise) Speeding along on Rt Nl6 near Jettingen on his motor scooter, M. Rene Ott passed a field where a mushroom-shaped object was hover just above the ground. Visible on the side of the nine foot wide object was a luminous rectangle(a door?o. t-f. Ott raced away on his scooter but the object took up the chase, the UFO flying just above the scooter(ls feet or so) and staying in that position until the nearest town was reached. 66. October 7th. St-Jean-D'Asse, France. (6:20 a.m.) Yet another Frenchman on the highways that morning received a surprise. It seems a ~1. Alexander Tremblay, driving a truck on Rt Nl38 near St_jean D'Asse, had trouble making it up a slight grade. It was still dark[o:zo a.m. )and 1-1. Trembley's had his headlights on. For no apparent reason the truck's engine quit and the headlights failed. H. Tremblay got out to check under the hood but his attention was suddenly drawn to a powerful blue-colored light speeding in his direction, and as it approached, M. Tremblay-could see that the light was being emitted by a flying cigar, blue and red in hue. 67. October 7th. Monteux, France. (no time known) Another "landing" was suppose to have taken place in the vicinity of 1-lonteux, France, on the 7th when a M. Margaillon encountered a hay stack shaped object on the ground which he estimated was about 8 feet in diameter. ~1. ~largaillon felt so paralyzed for some reason even his breathing was affected and he gasped for air. 68.

27 -':'f. 15 October 7th. Mendionale, France. (no time known) "Little men and ajlying mushroom." The French newspaper Sud-Ques~ published this story: ''!-1. ~lanes Guesurtia of llendionale(rasses-pyrenees) was on his way to work on October 7, 1954, when he noticed at a distance a strange object that seemed to be shaped like a mushroom. Walking across the field toward it, he saw on the grass two red engines about 2 meters in diameter. Besides them stood two little men about 80 centimeters tall. The two little men gestured to him, indicating that he should enter one of the machines. They entered the other one, and it rose into the air without a sound. Looking through the open door of the other object, M. Guesurtia saw a third little man. Suddenly the door was closed and the second object also took off, displacing a slight current of air. Neighbors said that they saw nothing, but they found the grass on the prairie crushed and yellow." 69. October 7th. District of Peronne, France. (no time known) A rature interesting event is described by Aime Michel, although briefly, concerning an object reported flying over a wooded area in the Peronne district called Foucaucourt-en-Santerre. People living in an area covering some 30 kilometers got a glimpse of the UFO, various witnesses reporting the same details as to time and size. Michel was struck by the fact the UFO,a cigar-like body, resembled the thing reported at Margnane, France, back on October 26, October 7th. Rimini, Italy. (no time known) A flying cigar was spotted zipping_ across the horizon at Rimini on the Adriatic coast by a Professor G. Uman1. Saucer lookouts were supposed to have been set up by the Italian Air r-iinistry and a group of astronomers based at Lucques let the public know ~ - they would act as a clearing house for flying saucer reports. 71. October 7th. Kenya. (no time known) A mention was made on the newswires that numerous UFO sightings were being made in the central African nation of Kenya. Unfortunately no details were given. 72. October 7th. Midura, Australia. (no time known) A star-like body was reported making unusual motions in the sky. One such motion was a cork-screw course. 73. Leonard Stringfield and Dr. Herget. "Do you have a security clearance." In October 1954 the editor of the C.R.I.F.O. Newsletter, Leonard Stringfield, was receiving munerous inquiries from h1s readers concerning the big green fireball that steaked over the U.S. Southwest back on September 18th, asking if the phenomenon had any possible connection with the UFO riddle. Needing some scientific advice, Stringfield made up his mind to contact Dr. Herget, a professor on the staff of the University of Cincinnati. It seemed to be worth a try since it was known nr. Herget was working on a Navy satellite program and just happened to be the world's foremost authority on asteroids.

29 17. Stringfield got through to Dr. Herget and introduced himself by saying he wanted some expert advice on green fireballs and the UFO ""YStery, mentioning that he had already discussed things with the Air Force's BWE BOOK people at Wright Field. The professor was receptive and suggested that Stringfield stop by at the University Observatory where they could talk in private. Quite possibly Stringfield was ignorant of the fact Dr. Herget was no stranger to the UFO problem, having conferred with the Air Force on at least one occasion that we know of, back in February 1948, according to RUlE BOOK records, concerning a group of strange "meteors" that zoomed over Memphis, Termessee. Also, it was Dr. Herget who suggested to BUJE BOOK that they sign on Dr. Lincoln LaPaz and Dr. J. Allen Hynek as project scientific advisors. That the Cincinnati University professor was not a "babe in the woods" in regards to the UFO problem, was something Stringfield learned about quick enough. It was Dr. Herget that began the interview when the two men sat down to talk in the professor's office, the astronomer asking Stringfield:"Do you have a security clearance?" \~en the UFO buff gave a negative reply, this is what happened, as Stringfield describes it :"As though operated on a pushbutton, the atmosphere changed. Turning red, Dr. Herget said harshy, 'I take a dim Yiew of the whole subject. There's absolutely nothin~s to it." 74. Stringfield tried to save the interview after that by presenting evidence for the existence of UFOs but Dr. Herget took a hard-line ~ienzel-type attitude and cut the meeting short. 75. October 7th. Henzies, France. "Everybody laughs at us." (6:00 a.m.) Two young French children were questioned by police after they claimed to.rave seen something extraordinary 6:00 a.m. October 7th. The oldest of the two, ten-year-old Claude Lasselin, protested:"everybody laughs at us, but ive saw what -we saw." According to Claude, he and his nine-yea.,. old sister Francoise '"ere walking hoi'le when they saw a big, red-colored, egg-shaped, ob-"" ject resting in an open field. Curious, the children crept up on the object and when about 100 yards away, saw that the top of the "egg" had what appeared to be a dark-colored hatch, and no sooner had they noticed that particular feature, they witnessed something startling. Said Claude: "At this moment, I saw, and so didmy sister, two men of normal height come out of the 'egg.' They were all in black, and their faces seemed black. We were seized with fear and flew home, and did not turn our heads." 76. October 7th. St.-Etienne-Sous-Barbuise, France. (7:30p.m.) If we can believe the story, three UFOs set down on the ground near a rail crossing at St.-Etienne-Sous-Barbuise. Glowing brightly, one round object and two cigar-shaped objects, had parked themselves at the spot for some unknown reason. H. r.mrcel Guyet passed that way after work and saw the objects, as did his son who travelled the same road a short time later. 77. October 7th. Bompas, France. (12:00 p.m.) A mysterious flying object was supposed to have made a brief landing in the village of Bompas, France, at midnight. A resident. M. Sebelli, saw the object touch down so he alerted his neighbors. A number of people gathered in time to see the object before it rose and made its departure. 78.

34 22 October. (The first week. Exact date not known) Patna, India. Hindu funerals at the city of Patna were interupted when above the rising vapors of the burning ghats a dark grey disc appeared. A~out 15 feet across, the circular object dived to within 300 feet of the ground, its sides spurting smoke. Over 800 mourners in the area at the time witnessed the UFO. 79. October. (The first week. Exact date not known) ~fulhouse, France. In the southeast corner of France two witnesses swore they sighted a luminous spindle accompanied by a dozen satellite bodies. 80. October 8th. Riel, Austria. (no time known) In an issue of Stringfield's C.R. I.F.0. Newsletter it stated:"... police said they received thousands of reports ot lllm1nous objects flying over the town of Riel, Austria." 81. October 8th. t-fertrud, France. "Fl ~ing red knob." (no time known) The report from Mertrud on the 8th was little bit different. A being, an estimated four feet in height, jumped into his machine when spotted and flew away. Larger than most UFOs being reported(30 feet in diameter), the object in question was ball-shaped, orange-colored, and sported a single leg that protruded from the bottom. The witness called the UFO a "flying- red knob." 82. October 8th. Calais, France. (9:15 p.m.) A domed object, bluish in color, swooped over a road, turned a white hue, and then sped away. 83. October 9th..~es, France. (11:45 a.m.) An employee of the Riche Hotel in Ales, France, looked up at the sky 11:45 the morning of the 9th in time to see a saucer hovering overhead, spinning on its axis. The disc-shaped object then sped away, all the "While accelerating rapidly. 84. "'FLYING DISKS' DRAW A JEER." --Chicago Tribune headline. The Air Force "disclosures" appeared on schedule on October 9th, but the news release steered clear of any hint of Pentagon guided missile secrets or spac~ visitors, instead the handout was a routine blast at Donald Keyhoetype believers and denying the charge the military was ''hiding the truth," or that any menace threaten the nation: "After a study of more than 3,500 sightings of heavenly apparitions and other phenomena, the Air Force has found 'no authentic physical evidence' that the eerie lights in the sky are space ships from other planets, or secret weapons launched by the United States or some foreign power." 8 5. Desmond Leslie's October 9th disclosure. Flying saucers under guard in hanger 27? The Murdoc rumor again. Those who had faith in the rumor flying saucers had landed at Huroc.llir Force base early in 1954, and that President Eisenhower had inspected the alien craft during his Palm Springs vacation; point to another appearance of the rtllllor in the Fall of 1954 that is suppose t;,o help "confirm the truth of

35 23 the Muroc incident," and that some discs were "under guard in a Hanger 27 at ~1uroc." If one checks out the source of this Fall 1954 "con+innation," one finds that it originated in the October 9, 1954 issue of Valor magazine in the publication's feature "Saucer Symposuim" written by George Hunt 1'/illiamson. The so-called "facts" given in Williamson's article simply consisted of the results of "research" done by Desmond Leslie, contactee George Adamski's co-author, during a 1954 trip to southern California. Leslie supposedly questioned a military man that was stationed at Muroc at the time. The military man was not named. 86. October 9th. Lavoux, France. (no time known) Another "mysterious figure in a divl.ng suit" encountered a Frenchman on October 9th when a farmer, on his way home on his bicycle, found the road barred by a "bright-eyed, hairy-chested" figure wearing "boots without heels" and a device on its chest that ''beamed two headlights." 87. October 9th. Carcassonne, France. (4:00p.m.) Four o'clock in the afternoon on the 9th a large ball-like object sat on the shoulder of the road that ran passed the town of Carcassonne. The bottom half of this object seemed to be made of metal, while the upper portion was transparent. As M. Jean Bertrand approached the sphere in his car, he could see two beings of a humanoid shape inside the UFO which rose and then sped eastward. 88. October 9th. Stringfield, Col. O'Mara, and the Air Force news release. Apparently the trouble between Leonard Stringfield and Col. O'Mara of ATlC over their June 1954 phone conversation-had to do with the Intelligence Chief making remarks that were intended to prepare the U.S. public for an official announcement about the UFO mystery by the Air Force. The announcement was to suggest(the impression aiven by the colonel)advanced American d7vices were probably responsible for many reports of strange phenomena 1n the sky, yet Stringfield chose to stress the possibility of the indorsement of extraterrestrial visitors when he quoted O'~mra as saying:"flying saucers exist," and then the colonel made a cloudy statement about an upcoming October 9th military press release of which Stringfield quoted this portion:"(a statement)... which will explain some of the past contradictions and release details behind many sightings." 89. Stringfield did ask the colonel quite directly if UFOs were spaceships, and O'Hara apparently failed to make the usual careful rejection of such a concept, repying that the Air Force was:"... graduall v getting more data." 90.. October 9th. Pournoy-la-Chetive, France. (6:30p.m.) While at play, four French children noticed an odd light. A quote from a press account collected by Jacques Vallee says: "It was a round machine, about 2.5 meters in diameter, which was standing on three legs. Soon a man came out. He was holding a lighted flashlight in his hand and it blinded us. But we could see that he had large eyes, a face covered with hair and that he was very small, about four feet tall. He was dressed in a sort of black sack like the cassock M. le Cure wears. He looked at us and

36 24 said something we did not understand. He turned off the flashlight. 1'/e became afraid and ran away. \'/hen we looked back we saw something in the sky: it was very high, very bright and flew fast." 91. October 9th. Rinkerode, Germany. (Evening) There was a lot of blue light off to one side of the road as Willi Hoge, a movie projectionist, drove by on his way home. His first thought was that an airplane had come down in the area due to an emergency, but as Mr. Hoge peered closer he discerned four small figures(about four feet high)with big heads and chests, and small thin legs, apparently doing some repair work(?) on a spindle-shaped machine. All of the figures were dressed in some sort of one-piece elastic body suit. 92. October 9th. Beauvain, France. (Evening) A speeding sphere streaked low over the treetops near Beauvian the evening of the 9th. Cyclist Christian Carette had the thing in view for about ten seconds and said the ball-like object had a fiery appearance and some sort of protruberance coming out its top portion. Its speed was terrific. 93. October 9th. Cuisy, France. (7:20p.m.) Cars stopped. A fasinating account came from Olisy, France, the evening of the 9th concerning unexplained engine failure and UFOs. In this case, the vic- ~. tirns of the annoying experience were two auto mechanics, M. Andre Bartoli and M. Jean-Jacques Lalevee. It seems ~1. Bartoli was just leaving M. Lelevee's house in his car and was backing up when, through the rear window, he saw a yellow-orange flying cigar in the twilight. Since his engine suddenly quit at the same time, M. Bartoli popped open the car door and jumped out to get a better look at the funny object passing overhead. The thing quickly sped out of sight in the direction of Paris to the southwest. M. Lalevee, who was standing nearby to see his friend off, had also spotted the UFO. Both men exchanged opinions about the phenomenon, speculating that they just witnessed a meteor crossing the heavens at a.very low altitude. With the sky show over, M. Bartoli returned to his car and noticed, much to his puzzlement, that the headlights were out, and the motor in gear but not running. Airne Michel investigates. UFO investigator Airne Michel somehow heard of the incident and paid a vist to the men. Michel suggested to M. Bartoli that the shock of seeing the UFO made him yank his foot off the accelerator stalling the engine, but the professional auto machanic denied he would do such a thing for a mere light in the sky, besides the car's ignition was on and the headlights out, indicating something very strange had occurred. Whatever had happened, they was no permanent harm done. M. Bartoli said he restarted the car's engine without difficulty and the headlights went on normally. The two mechanics wanted r.lichel to give his judgement on the case but the French UFO researcher replied: "If you report this to the papers,

46 34 they'll say that a flymg saucer flew over your car and stopped your motor." 94. ~1. Bartoli cotmtered wlth: "I'll have to see one to believe in flying saucers." 95. Was his "flying cigar" a "saucer?" Bartoli just shrugged. Michel ended h1s interv1ew and reflected on the men's testimony. If the object had left the Cuisy area in a southwest direction, it must have passed over ~ational Road No.Z(a superhighway)during the rush hour. IVhy hadn't others seen the sky object? i'-lichel learned that a mysterious sky object had crossed the highway, apparently the cause of a rash of engine failures tharproduced a big traffic jam just south of Dammartin-en-Goele. A number of the motorists had sighted the sky object. Furthermore, west of the highway close to the town of Dreux, some hunters had viewed a "vaguely luninous mass" in the sky moving slowly toward the southwest. 96. October 9th. Bel-Air, France. (11:00 p.m.) According to a French newspaper: ".About eleven o'clock on the night of October 8-9, 1954, M. Puygelier saw overhead near the town of Bel-Air a luminous elongated object resembling a gigantic egg, which descended close to the grotmd, oscillated a few seconds, then landed behind a hedge near the road. He drove on to St. Cloud in fright, but then returned with another witness. \Vhere the craft had been seen, they could make out in the darkness a human silhouette standing motionless on the roadside. At this place the next morning a strip of burned vegetation 3 meters lbng was found, surrounded by an area where the grass was trampled." 97. October loth. Alexandria, Egypt. (no time known) A red and green cylinder reported. 98. October loth. Liege, Belgium. The Royal Belgian Observatory declared that it would act as a clearing house for UFO reports made by the public. 99. An Italian UFO "center" also opened in the village of Fiumetto.

They will be 37-foot plastic balloons released near Tracy, California, where winds from 28 to 110 miles an hour will float them east. Timing devices will explode the helium-filled bags after two or three day's travel, and 300 pounds of experimental equipment will parachute to the grotmd." 100. October 11th. Jonzieiux, France. (4:00 a.m.) A milkman making his rounds at 4: 00 in the morning, ~1. Baptiste Jourdy, had his headlights go out and his truck's engine stop for no apparent reason. Immediately thereafter a brilliant body cross~ the sky beneath the clouds at right angles to the road. Within seconds after the UFO passed out of sight, the headlights:".. went back on by themselves." 101. Also, the truck's engine turned over normally when M. Jourdy turned the key. 102.

51 39 October 11th. Sassier, France. (4:15a.m.) Another electromagnetic inc1dent took place 15 ~utes later at Sass1er where two travelling salesl'len, H.!.Duis Vigneron and 1'-f. Henri Gallois, encountered a stran~e object and its occupants. In ~f. Gallois' words: "I was driving in the middle of the road when suddenly near Sassier I felt something like an electric shock through my whole body. At the same time the car motor stopped and the lights went out. Paralyzed, we asked ourselves what was happening. It was then that, in a field bordering the road about 165 feet away, we saw a round object. Next to it we saw clearly three short beings who seemed to be moving about quickly. Their silhouetts soon disappeared into the saucer-like object which flew off immediately. "Almost right away my lights went back on and we were able to drive away." 103. October 11th. Bauquay, France. (dawn) Cows frighten. A big, bright, red "cigar volant" zoomed over a French farmer's field at Bauquay in Norwandy at stmup. The farmer, and two others, watched as the elongated object sped by at treetop level. The cows in the field went into a panic, the bells arotmd their necks jangling loudly as the animals ran wild. A day later the cows still refused to give l'lilk "Suspicious sommolence." Much to Leonard Stringfield's surprise, on October 11th the Associated Press contacted him about his CRIFO organization so the newsservice could work the information into a story about UFO reports from Cincinnati and Germany(See ne\vsclipping) This inquiry by AP made Stringfield '"onder if censorship of the UFO subject was disintegrating. Reflecting on the past record of the Fourth Estate, Stringfield noted the:"... suspicious somnolence of Life since 1952, 'canned' editorials, and, an occasional Dr. ~lenzel yeast:pittfed theory, viz., cobwebs, airborne ltmchwrappers, phosphorescent bugs(no kidding)... " 105. Stringfield remarked:"... we in 'the business' find other sources to lend us courage." 106. October 11th. Cherry Valley, New York. (4:00p.m.) An.American engineer named Abraham Cox, of Cherry Valley, N.Y., was surprised when a grey metallic-like disc about 30 feet across came into vie':~ The object was not moving that fast, and it was only at a moderate alt1tude, so Mr. Cox got a good look. The object was soundless and visible for about half a minute as it soared over Cherry Valley on a horizontal. course. As an engineer, 1'-lr. Cox marvelled at the aerodvnamics of a flying craft without a tail or wings, but he had only a moment' to do that because he was abruptly distracted by a sharp movement the craft made, a shift to a vertical position so that it "rolled through the air like a wheel." 107. October 12th. "The Zenith."

53 41 I'Vh1le analzying the data on the French excitement, UFO researcher Aime ~!ichel selected October 12th as the "zenith" of the UFO Have. Surveying the French press, he noted that "flying saucers" had become a major daily newsstory, with usually a half page coverage, and front page treatement was not LUlCOlliiT!On. To ~1ichel the space given the subject in the newspapers was a measure of how the mystery had bec~e part oi the French public's consciousness, although he was impressed by the fact that only actual eyewitnesses were "believers" while people in general preferred to blame the sightings on a psychosis, which was why professor Heuyer' s "sauceri tis schizophrenia" theory received acolades October 12th. Toulouse, France. (4:00 a.m.) Another early morning case was recorded at the Croix Durade section of Toulouse when a luminous craft was seen taking off from a field. A check of the site discovered a 50-foot area of flatten grass October 12th. Orchamps-Vennes, France. (no time known) According to a Toulon newspaper: "On the 12th, a curious object with four wheels was seen by Franzesko Beuc on the farm where he worked on Orchamps-Vennes; nearby ivas a 5-foot helmeted being who jtunped into the device, i-lhich rolled along the road for some distance before it gradually ascended." 110. October 12th. ~1amora forest, ~1orocco. (afternoon) The afternoon of the 12th, as story goes, a small figure in a metalliclike suit ;;as spotted climbing aboard a craft that quickly lifted off and flew away. The witness to this "saucer visit" was a French engineer who saw the four-foot-tall being while driving through ~Iarocco's Mamora forest October 12th. Caracasonne, France. (4:00 p.m.) According to the newspaper Charente Libre: "About four o'clock in the afternoon H. Jean Bertrand, a mechanic of Carcasonne, saw a spherical object flying at low altitude. Its lower part seemed to be made of shinning metal and the upper part of plastic. He said that he could see two human forms inside the machine before it disappeared at high speed toward the east." 112. October 12th. Sainte-~mrie d'herblay, France. (10:30 p.m.) "Gilbert's hoax." In the Atlantic seacoast town of Sainte-l'-mrie d' Herb lay there lived thirteen-year-old Gilbert Lelay, a lad with considerable imagination. On the 12th of October this vouth told authorities he had come across an odd machine- resting in a pasture, a sort of "phosphorescent cigar," and next to it was a man who came up to Gilbert and said(in French it is assumed) it was permitted to observe but not to touch anything. The man did not stay long, but before he left in the machine, Gilbert noticed thaf in the man's hand was a glowing sphere that sent out shafts of purple light. As the door on the cigar-shaped machine opened and closer!, Gilbert got a glimpse, he said, of a console covered with colored lights. When the odd craft vaulted into the sky, it performed two loops. 113.

54 42 After inquiries were made, Gilbert's claim was determined to be bogus, but tj:lat did not discourage the boy Hho was associated with another false report on the 16th at Erbray UFO wave hits northern Italy: On October 12 and 13, 1954, people in at least 15 sections of the Po River Valley reported UFOs. No more detail is!mown. October 14th(9th). Teheran, Iran. "Attempted abduction?" When the southern shift of the 1954 ~ave hit Iran, very strange stories came out of that country, one of which excites modern day UFO researchers. Gordon Creighton, to whom the UFO corrmunity owes a great debt because of his many translations of foriegn news accounts, managed to acquire an English version of an article in Teheran's principle newspaper Ettela' that gives us some fasinating information: --- "A few days ago, one of our correspondents reported from Mahallat that a marvellously luminous object had landed near there and that many farmers had been impressed by its strange and colourful appearance. It was hemispherical in form, and emitted multi-coloured beams of light. "It only landed for a brief period, and in the meantime more and more of the country folk were crowding near to look at it, but nobody would go too close to it, so great was their fear. '11le central part of the object was of metal and less bright than the rest. '~ile the crowd of people was growing larger and larger, the object suddenly shot straight upwards into the sky and vanished. The affair has provoked great discussion among the populace. "Following upon this report, we then received another one from a resident of Shamsabad who walked into our editorial offices this morning and stated that at 6:30a.m. yesterday(october 14th), just as he was coming out of his house, he saw a luminous object resembling a brightly shining star. It was at a distance of about 100 meters from him, and he estimated its length as about five meters. He had already heard of flying saucers, and at once realised that this was one. Approaching more closely, he perceived a 'short young man' standing on a circular piece of metal in the middle of the radiant object and looking around him searchingly. "The witness was nm-1 only twenty meters from the saucer and could see that the pilot was laughing at the terrified expression on his face; Suddenly however the machine shot up into the air at an unbelievable speed and vanished. "The following episode occurred in.amireah Street, here in Tehran. "A Mr. Ghaseme Fili, who lives in that street, informs us that at 2:30a.m. last Friday(October 8th), he being at that time on the second floor of his house, he saw a luminous white flying object which became stationary at a distance of about twenty meters from him. Lights were shining from the rear end of the object and from its sides.

62 so "Ins1de the object he could see what appeared to be a small man dressed in black clothing and wearing on his head a strange mask shaped like the trunk of an elephant. Said Mr. Fili:'I was standing, with both hands on the bar of my balcony, looking with astonlshment at this strange object, '"hen I suddenly felt as though I were being drawn up towards the object as though by a magnet.' "Mr. Fili cried out in terror and awakened the neighbours. Meanwhile, the luminous object shot straight up into the sky and vanished in the twinkling of an eye. It emitted sparks as it rose up. ''While the foregoing reports were being assembled, we received a visit this morning from a resident of Salsabil Street, also in this Capital. Very worried and frightened, this man told us that this Morning(October 15th), as he opened his front door, he saw a pale coloured cigar-shaped object moving slowly through the sky. As it changed direction, he saw multi-coloured flashes of light come from both sides of it." 115. Mr. Fili' s remark about being "drawn upward by an invisible force" has caught the eye of UFO researchers doing work on modern cases. It seemed to suggest that similar statements made by ''UFO abduction victims" may be a real part of the UFO mystery, seeing as how this supposed 1954 incident _ was recorded long before the abduction phenomenon became recognized. Paralysis phenomenon. October 14th. Hanosque, France. (no time known) A mystery object was encountered by a hunter, am. ~lasses, who immedi- '* ately backed away, but his dog became agressive and charged the object. The animal suddenly became semi-paralysed and struggled back to his master October 14th. Witness:Flight Lieutenant James R. Salandin. Unit:County of Middlesex Squadron,Royal Auxiliary Air Force. Aircraft :Gloster 8 jet fighter. Time:Shortly after 4:15 p.m. A pilot in the British military reserve, Lt. Salandin was on a tra1n1ng flight the afternoon of October 14th for what promised to be a routine exercise. Weather conditions were excellent as he flew his jet south from North Weald Field, Essex, to an area over the Tha:t'les Estuary, Two other meteor'jets were visible high above in the clear blue sky as Lt. Salandin put his aircraft in a climb to reach their altitude. Climbing passed 16,000 feet and with the city of Southend below him, Lt. Salandin suddenly spotted three round objects, one gold and the other two silver-colored, as they sped across the sky high on his port beam. He was startled to see one of the silver circular objects turn and head straight for him at tremendous speed. The object approached so close it nearly filled his plane's windscreen, but at the last second it veered to one side, avoiding a fatal collision. The near-miss, as one can imagine, was such a shock Lt. Salandin did not really recover his composure for at least ten minutes, the Air Reservist flying slowly all that time and not attempting any maneuvers. The object was certainly a type of "flying saucer," with an unmarked surface, a ''btm shaped top and bottom," separated in the middle by a flange. The only regret the pilot had was that things happened too fast for him to think about pushing the gun-camera button. With the "saucer'' coming within an estimated 300 yards, the fi~ images could have been r~rkable.

Salandin' s encounter lvas forwarded to the Air Ministry A curious fact about the Lt.

See the next page.) October 14th. Biot, France. (6:1$ p.m.) Pedaling down a street in the Maritime Alps town of Biot, M. Jose Cassella braked his bike to a stop when his way was blocked by a big, smoothsurfaced. metallic-looking, oval object. Like a huge aluminum egg 15 feet by 9 feet in size, the thing sat there for a moment and then silently took off at high speed. Others in Biot made independent observations of the object October 14th. Saone-et-Lorire district. France. (nightfall 7:30?) At nightfall a French motorcyclist suffered inexplicable engine trouble on the road to Brosses-Tillots. The motor quit and the bike'rolled to a stop. Perplexed the rider dismounted to check for a malftmction, bu~ before he had a chance to do anything the road ahead was lit up by a bnlliant circular mass SO yards away that resembled a:".. plate turned upside down." 119. Fearfull, the witness turned his bike around, pushing the machine and manipulating the controls with the hope he could make a fast escape. Curiously, at the point in the road where he first experienced engine trouble, the bike suddenly roared to life OCT October 14th. Hobbs, New Mexico. (8-9:20 p.m.) "Lubbock Lights?" One of the few U.S. reports made in October was submitted by amateur astronomer R.S. Fleming, who witnessed a series of five manifestations during the tilrle period of 8-9:20 p.m. at H<;_>bbs, New Hexico. \'fuat gave

65 53 the sightings special significance was their similarity to the famous "Lubbock Lights" of the summer of 1951, and the little-known formations of lights reported over El Paso, Texas, on September 14, The first appearance of something strange was noticed at 8:00 p.m. as Mr. Fleming was setting up his small telescope for an evening of astrononmical observations. A formation of lights in a half circle, bisected by a straight line, swept out of the northeast, passed silently overhead at an estimated 5,000 feet altitude, and then disappeared to the SQ1J.thwest. So puzzled was Mr. Fleming(he claimed great familiarity with jets), he StlllUl\Otled his wife and daughter to be additional witnesses. After a wait of about 10 minutes, another "half circle" of soft lights soared across the sky. These ''Hobbs lights" were either individual glowing bodies themselves, or weak points of light on a large craft too dark to discerned, because the witnesses could not see an outline or a surface between the lights. The phenomenon moved too quickly to bring the telescope to bear on it., Stargazer Fleming,guessed that the formations were moving "twice the speed of a jet,"and spanned a distance "twice that of.-rica's huge B-36 bomber." There were a total of five overflights at altitudes Fleming guessed were from 5,000 to as low as 2,000 feet. All were the same save the last one at 9:20p.m. when a half circle consisting of three rows of lights swept overhead It would be hasty to classify the Hobbs case as a "true" UFO sighting without checking the possibility there was some unusual military aircraft traffic that particular evening, but since it might help explain the famous "Lubbock Lights" of 1951, it is being included. October 14th. Southend, England. (Just before midnight) "What scared Miss Hennessey?" The fullest accow'lt of ~fiss Hennessey's experience is to be fow'ld in the files of the now defw'lct News Chronicle of South-on-Sea, England: ''Twenty-three-year-old Patricia Hennessey is scared. She is convinced that she has seen a flying saucer --on the grow'ld. It terrified her and sent her running home trembling with fear. At first she would not talk about it, but gradually her family and friends persuaded her to tell what she saw. ''Miss Hermessey was walking in Park Lane, Southend, on her way home to nearhy Chase Road on Thursday night (October 14th) night when she was confronted by 'The Thing.' She said:'suddenly something made me look up.;- In the road five yards away by the Kerbside was a silvery object about 12 ft. high. It was doomed and cylindrical --about 10 ft. across. A pip~ the thickness of a human body and rather like a gas mask tube came from inside The Thing. It was attached down one side, and went back in again at the bottom. It had no legs or wheels. There were no markings. It seemed as though The Thing had a pale light shimmering from inside. I began to tremble. I turned and ran. ''The sp9t is by the gates of Southchurch Hall Park. At t~e nearest house a woman was asked if she had seen any strange ObJect the night before. She did not ask why she was being questioned.

It was also seen and logged at Southend Airport as 'an tmidentified object."' 122. O;:tober 15th. Hungary. (early morning) An article in the Hungarian weekly TUkor does not provide much of a UFO report by most standards but it did indicate "UFO hysteria" had penetrated the Iron Cl.trtain: "Early on the morning of 15th October a shining object sped through the sky westwards, watched by hundreds of thousands of people, most of whom still think today that they saw a flying saucer. About 1, 500 people wrote down their findings in response to an appeal from the astronomical observatory 'Urania' --and here we come up against the disconcerting riddle that no two of their reports appear to be alike; according to the reports 1, 500 people have obviously seen as ' many different objects. Forttmately a completely objective 'witness' was found--in the form of a camera. A teacher from the province of Gyor-Sopron photographed the object twice. By means of this, together with reports from reliable witnesses, the people at the observatory were able to establish that the object was big, shining and reddish in colour--it could well have been a small comet--and that it went through the sky at a speed of 40 km per second along a path.amsterdam-athens. This comet only went through the uppermost layer of the earth's atmosphere before continuing its journey rotmd the sun after a slight alteration of orbit. This case demonstrates that anybody not versed in astronomy and mechanics is not suited to discuss such a phenomenon, even through he tries to be objective. The phenomenon flew or moved at a distance of 1,000 km from the observers and at a height of at least 200 km. Its speed was of a cosmic order yet not one of the eyewitnesses noticed these essential facts --everybody thought the object was much closer and moving like an aircraft." 123. O;:tober 15th. Boaria, Rorigo, Italy. (no time known} Things really got wild in Italy if our information is correct, for it seems an Italian farmer by the name of Antonia Grepaldi had an "aerial visitor" that did much more than just make an appearance. Grepaldi, whose farm is about SO miles from Italy's major city in the Po River Valley, the metropolitan area of r.1ilan; was near his farmhouse watering some of his cows at a small pond when a big "dark egg-like body" came into view, giving off blue-silver sparks, tongues of blue and yellow flame, and intense heat. SWoOiJing low over the farmhouse, the "flying egg" spooked the cows, the animals stampeding in confusion. In the turmoil Grepaldi's 9-year-old daughter was knocked to the ground. With his child injured, Grepaldi panicked and ran indoors where he promptly fainted. Meanwhile,the big ovoid sped away, travelling at an altitude of about 45 feet, but even at that low height the strange object was spotted by at least three other people in the area, and it apparently was so low it oroduced an effect felt at. grotmd level. As the UFO passed over some haystacks, the straw burst into flame. Other indications that the UFO radiated heat was that the small pond in Grepaldi' s barnyard lost all its water and sane of man's caws standing nearby suffered bums. 124.

69 56 October 15th. Perpignan, France. (no time known) A big red-glowing ball came down out of the sky and touched down only 1 SO feet from l t Damien Figueres who was out walking his dogs. To H. Figueres' great astonishment, a fi~re, dressed in a suit a de~p sea diver might wear, stepped out of the lum1nous sphere, walked around 1t, an~ then climbed back aboard. As M. Figueres' dogs barked at the strange obje~t, it sailed away October 15th? Alvita, Portugal. (no time known) While hunting in a pasture, sportman Manuel ~fadeira's attention was drawn to a cloud of dust which seemed to indicate he had flushed some game. Carefully approaching the spot, Senor Madeirl; arrived in time to see a strange cigar-shaped object launch itself skyward in a vertical climb at terrific velocity October 15th. Po-di-Gnocca, Italy. (afternoon) A flying disc made a brief touchdown, shooting vertically after a moment or two at rest. This was witnessed by farmers in the in the area. What sets this case apart were the "traces" left behind, primarily a gaping hole 20 feet in diameter, the earth ripped upward by some powerful force as if by a ~iant vacuum! Ragged clods of dirt were scattered about and a half dozen popular trees next to the big hole showed burned marks. As with the October 4th Poncey case when a big hole was apparently created by a UFO, authorities showed an interest in the apparent "solid 'evidence" at Po di Gnocca and made inquiries Nairobi Reuters dispatch: "Saucers from space." With little saucer activity in the U.S. during time period, there was not much for Donald Keyhoe to do except discuss with his friend Frank Edwards rumors about possible Mars discoveries after a recent planetary study by the world's top astronomers. There was one stargazer in particular that pleased Keyhoe, the vice-president of the Kenya Astronomical Association G. Duncan Fletcher. Keyhoe read a Reuters dispatch in the Chicago Tribune that could have been a quote from one of his books: "From all the information available they are steadily mapping every part of our earth. "Reports have been made by observers who have seen these unidentified flying objects over atomic plants, dock yards, airfields, naval bases, and some of the larger cities of the world. Their approach to us is,i suggest, similar to what our own approach would be if the boot were on the other foot. Suppose we were to visit Venus. I do not think that we would land until we had made every possible investigation. "The obvious thing is that we should map, photograph, and if possible carry out a thorough investigation before we wantonly risked life by hasty landing. It is not unreasonable therefore that whatever controls the UFO' s is doing exactly that." 128. October 15th. Nimes-Courbessac airfield. (7:50 p.m.) A giant yellow cigar-like object with portholes ~ supposed to have been seen on the Nimes-Courbessac airfield. Creatures wearing helmets were visible inside the craft. A cloudy mist surrotmded both ends of the 150 by 12 foot spindle. 129.

Numerous witnesses in the area sighted the object October 15th. Fouesnant, France. (night) A red-glowing "inverted plate" swept low over the countryside near Fouesnant and then out to sea. The witness to this overflight was a truckdriver named Rene le Viol who saw a second such object following the first one October 16th. Bangkok, Thailand. Pe:ignan, France.

(no time known) Two UFOs were reported near the city of Quasso, Italy, by a bus driver, Senor De Rossi. According to Senor Rossi one of the strange aerial bodies dived at the ground, and as it swooped low a gesticulating figure could be seen October 16th. 1'-iodena, Italy. (no time known) According to the London, England, Evening News, a fast-flying incandescent cigar-shaped object zoomed over MOdena, r:n-northern Italy October 16th. Cier-de-Riviers, France. (no time known) "Horse levitated?"

71 sa Jacques Vallee received a letter from a young(22) Frenchman by the name of Guy Puyfourcat who' felt compelled to share his UFO exp~rience. Like the majority of French cases, the incident occurred in a rural setting with M. Puyfourcat leading a horse by a bridle down a country lane. It was fortunate that the young man was not mounted on the ani:r'lal because for no apparent reason the mare became nervous. At the same time a ~ray-colored object about four feet in diameter rose up from a spot close by and then moved toward the man and horse, passing above them. As the object passed.~ over, an astonishing thing happened. The horse was pulled upward, at least nine feet, so high M. Puyfourcat let go of the bridle. The horse then fell back to earth and lay motionless for a minute or two, and whether the animal was stunned by the fall or some sort of paralytic effect, is not known, but the mare r~covered slowly, its walk unsteady when it regained its feet. M. Puyfourcat felt nothing during the incident October 16th. Baillolet, France. (sundown) Missing time? Another motorist, this time a veterinary surgeon by the name of Dr. Henri Robert, sped along Route N314, passing the village of Baillolet, and at that point the doctor sighted an echelon formation of strange objects moving at a slow speed across the sky. One of the objects suddenly left the formation and lost altitude, plunging earthward in a "dead leaf" fashion, coming to rest about 100 yards from Dr. Robert's car. The surgeon felt an "electric shoe~' and his car's motor started to act up. The headlights went out and the motor died completely. As the vehicle rolled to a stop, Dr. Robert, who could not move by this time, noticed a little figure about three feet in height moving in the vicinity of the object that had landed. After that, he felt strange and "all went dark." The next thing he remembered is the head,ights of his car coming on by themselves and seeing the UFO lifting off and speeding away in a northern direction. Feeling now returned to Dr. Henri body. 13'5. Was there "missing time" in this case? It is interesting to note that this incident was not "recalled at a later date." Dr. Robert's story was printed in the ne\.;spaper Paris-Presse on October 19, October 16th. Belgium. Slow meteor? (9:00-9:30 p.m.) At 9:00 p.m. a mystery object was seen streaking over the Belgian towns of Arlon, Martelange, and Sibret. It left a luminous trace across the sky. At 9:15p.m. some people at Waremme, which included two constables, saw a red trail in the heavens. At 9:30 p.m. a "saucer-shaped" object spewing luminous smoke appeared in the air over Turnout Dompirre, France. (9:45 p.m.) A close approach of a glowing yellow "craft," some 60 feet wide and 6 feet high, was claimed by two Frenchmen, one was a M. Laolotre and the other was a M. Deschamp. The men said the object hovered within a dozen feet of the ground for about four minutes More ''meteor" sightings. (9:22 p.m.-9:45p.m.) Something was seen high in the sky over the Italian cities of t-tilan and Turin about 9:22p.m.

72 59 At 9:25 p.m. residents of Salins, France, noticed something coming out of the southeast sky from the direction of northern Italy. As the thing passed overhead it appeared as a dull~glowing lenticular s~ape trailing a luminous stream of smoke. Moments later the lenticular body passed over the cities of Dole and Montmirey still on a northwest trajectory. The elongated form l'<'as then spotted at Damparis and Dijm. The object was at a high altitude since observers some distance to the right and left of the object's course cciuld see the thing travel from horizon to horizon. At 9: 35 p.m., continuing in a straight line, the lenticular body ap~ peared over Paris, causing some concern at Orley airport which put all air traffic on hold while the phenomenon was in sight. Some people in the French capital claimed they saw the objet:t come to a stop while others even asserted the object made a 1lurn to the west. The French Air Force Inquiry Conmission looked into the case and concluded that a "slow meteor" was responsible, and that those who said they had seen a course change had merely suffered from an optical illusion. To explain the duration of the object's passage, the French Commission sug~ gested that witnesses' timepieces were not set properly. Arnie Michel thought more of the case than the military because he had knowledge of a sighting near St. Malo, a town that lies west of Paris on the coast of ~rittany. The time of this sighting was not known but there may have been a connection with the "slow meteor." l'lhat was seen at St. Malo, however, did not resemble the supposed meteor. According to the witness two objects raced across the sky and a third object was seen in~ tercepting the first two at a right angle. This new formation of three objects sped away leaving a thin vapor trail behind them "Gigantic luminous object." There is no alinement with the "slow meteor," but during the same time period 9:30p.m. to 9:45p.m., a spectacular sky show was taking place over the French Pyrenees village of Beless where SO people; including a Dr. Millet, President of the Aviation Club of Lavelanet; witnessed a "gi ~ gantic luminous object" perform a series of fantastic maneuvers while it emitted smoke. 139 October 16th. Siena, Italy. (midnight) A big glowing body landed momentarily in a meadow at the town of Siena, according to several local citizens October 17th. Toulon, France. (no time known) "Je suis Francaise." One UFO researcher asked if a "Martian" was attempting to masquerade as a Frenchman when he heard the story of cafe owner Alphonse Rapellini who phoned the Toulon police to say a domed flying saucer landed nearby and its pilot had asked for directions. Before leaving, the pilot told M. Rapellini:"I am not a Martian, I'm French(Je suis Francaise)" 141. <ktober 17th. Varigney, France. (8:30p.m.) It was a red glowing hemispherical machine that came down to a landing near Rt. D-10, a road that passed through the village of Varigney. The object was so obvious, parked as it was on a slight rise in the ground, several motorists stopped to gape. M. Barret, a crossing guard, a cafe owner named Beauclair and his daughter Jeanne, were among the witnesses that gathered at the spot to stare at the mysterious object.

The informant was highly suspious of the announcement, particularly after group discussion leaders(he had been appointed one) were given official instructions on how to guide club members in their thinking, to:". indoctrinate club members to receive the space visitors." 143. One can imagine what this self-appointed FBI spy thought. He probably believed he was preparing the way for a secret Russian commando raid! Craziness in Europe. "10 million france reward."

75 ******** CASH REWARD A $5,000 cash reward "for proof that there are interplanetary machines piloted by beings from another world" has been offered by Dan Paul 1 publisher of FRAUDS magazine 1 La Crescenta, California -- to which the writer has added a modest $100 as an indorsement of Mr. Paul's challenge aimed at the humbugry of those who originate ir-. responsible stories about "the little men from out of space".

78 65 confronting a thick-set creature, about three feet tall and \4earing a helmet. The creature, they said, had unforgettable glow1ng orange-colored eyes. Four other people 1n the area made independent observations of a UFO in the general area at the time October 18th. Royan, France. (9:00 p.m.) "Ltuninous bridge." A pair of UFOs flew over a busy French highway, Route N150, at 9:00p.m. October 18th. The two UFOs seemed to be connected by a "luminous bridge" according to those who paid attention. Two witnesses, whether they were motorists is not given in the account, ~.f. and Hme. Labassiere, said they observed the pair of objects set down in a field where two "drawf-like" beings emerged, one from each craft. The beings re-entered different objects, giving the impression the ships had landed w1th the purpose of exchanging personnel. After this "switch," the two UFOs zoomed away, and while doing so, emitted a tremendous flash Coraf Lorenzen's source is more descriptive, saying that the objects were flat, like pans, and that the overall impression of the arrangement was like that of a balance with one "pan" orange and the other red. The - "bridge" was a ltuninous green beam of light. The entire apparition swayed o~ bounced as it moved toward the ground October 18th. Capri, Italy. (evening) "Four drawfs in coveralls.".. fl.n Italian named Raffaele Castello believed at first he 14as seeing a helicopter 14hen an object made a slow descent on Cape Massulo, a part of sea coast near Capri. \'/hile walking toward the landed object, it quickly became apparent to Castello the thing was no aircraft, but a mysterious disc-shaped body about 15 feet in diameter. At that point he saw something even more astonishing. Four drawf-sized figures dressed in coverall-type clothing stepped out of the disc and remained in the area for at least 30 minutes(what transpired during this half hoyr is not mentioned). Aften4ard the beings re-entered their ship and flew away, their machine emitting blue sparks and making a low whirring noise October 18th. Gells(Puy-de-Dome), France. (5:30p.m.) MISSING TIME? Quite possibly the most important case of the great flap was the experience of a 42-year-old village policeman named ~lonsieur Rachelard. His "missing time" seems to vailadate sensational reports made decades later. If so, the implications are enormous. In circumstances similar to many others of this period, r-1. Bachelard encountered, he said, a strange object while driving a vehicle. Taking the road to Gelles after leaving the village of Chanat, the policeman drove his light van passed the Chambois turnoff and entered a wooded stretch of road. He then noticed something positioned next to the road which at first he believed was some sort of cistern. A press account states: "I realised later that it wasn't precisely a cistern, for its two ends were pointed, like a cigar. It was of a chocolate-brown

79 66 colour and had rectangular markings which criss-crossed its two ends. It may well have been ten meters long and about 2~ meters high. I heard no sound from the machine, but merely felt this indescribable fear." 151. At that moment the van's engine started to misfire and steering became difficult. Shortly thereafter he began to have physical trouble, finding himself in a semi-paralyzed condition. Another word used in the ascotmt was ''hypnotised." Here there is a puzzling gap in M. Bache lard's memory, a period of "missing time." The very next thing the policeman recalled was that he was entering the village of Cohei.x in his van, but why he had taken a road off his usual route and what had happened since his encounter with the "cigar," was a total blank. M. Bachelard immediately approached some Cohiex farmers and tried to explain his situation. The peasants were impressed by the "pale and drawn" appearance of Bachelard and were convinced enough to shoulder their pitch~ forks and returned with the policeman to the site of the encounter ready to do battle if the need arose. There was no strange object at the spot when the men arrived but an hour had passed, giving the thing plenty of time to escape. Those who knew M. Bachelard described the fellow as a stable person, not the nervous or timid type, which is logical considering the man's oc;.cupation, yet the encounter had a powerful effect on the man. For a long time M. Bachelard was afraid to venture outdoors after dark and he refused to go anywhere near the area of his mysterious experience ''Monkey spacemen." A London newspaper made an interesting suggestion on October 18th when it published the opinion that since monkeys were being outfitted with oxygen masks and helmets and sent up as passengers in cosmic ray balloons, perhaps these simian test pilots were somehow responsible for the little saucer ~en reports., 153. (Decades later an American General suggested that the furor over the July 1947 Roswell incident might have been the result of confusion over dead monkeys killed after their balloon came down in the New Mexican desert. The monkey balloon flights of the late 40s were conducted under the codename BLOSSCM). October 18th. Fontenay-Forcy, France. (8:40p.m.) "Mass sighting." A reddish blob swooped down on a couple near Fontenay-Forcy, landing behind some shrubbery that screened it from view. The man and woman rushed to the place where the object should be, and, to their great surprise, came face-to-face with a figure, three feet tall, wearing a helmet through which recorded. The mysterious aerial aerial object was reported in the area by four independent witnesses. Another group at Sanson-la-Poterie sighted a strange object flying away from the supposed landing site at great speed October 18th. Daube, France. (10:45 p.m.) "Little folk." A Frenchwoman named Marie-Louise Bourriot was riding a motorcycle on

80 67 Route N437 that runs along the shore of Lake St. Point near the city of Doube when she noticed that the road ahead was lit up by a powerful red glow. There was no immediate concern about the phenomenon since it appeared to be about ZOO yards away and might, she thought, have something to do 1~i th normal traffie, but as she approached the old abandoned La Cascade a figure about four feet tall,wearing a "dark coat,"could be seen on a path. Next to this figure were two shorter figures, very dark, that crossed in front of the car at a distance of about 30 feet. The frighten woman accelerated passed the spot and a short time later glanced back and saw a red oval object shooting upward Authorities searched the area the following day and found SMall foot prints in the field and sane suspicious "furrows" in the earth U.S. Air Force BLUE BOOK advisor Dr. J. Allen Hynek, in his study of the French UFO flap, noted: "... there was no mechanism whatever to handle them. No scientist would touch this tricky subject, and thier official Air Force team began sorting reports by tossing out the 'obviously incredible reoort.' They latched onto those cases in which they could forsee a natural explanation, a most human and understandable reaction." 157. The situation reminded Dr. Hvnek of a problem that faced French science experts a centtrry earlier: "This French wave of stories is reminiscent of another wave of strange stories of stones that fell from heaven. Persistent stories came in, ~ in waves, from time to time, of stones that fell from the sky. Now, how credulous can one get --stones falling from the sky, indeed! "But in due course the French Academy of Sciences appointed a committee to study the subject, and after a full examination of the stories, reported back to the Academy that there was nothing to it --the stones in question had not fallen from the sky but had been hit by lightning! This despite their much greater density and obvious difference from surrounding stones. When a group of people don't want to admit something, there's nothing quite as hard headed as a scientific committee, on which each man has his scientific reputation to protect and going out on a limb is certainly not the Hay to do it. "The great irony of it --and I choose the word irony with care --came just a few years later when the little town of L' Aigle, France, 1~s literally peppered with iron meteorites. This time the French scientest Biot alone undertook the investigation, and in the face of incontrovertible evidence he and his colleagues finally were convinced. Since the year 1803 a meteorite can land in France with the full permission of the French Academy of Sciences.'' 158. Jet chase. Leonard Stringfield informed his C.R.I.F.O. Newsletter readers that on October 19th:''Two French Air Force jets Chased a 'white disc giving out white, red, and violet light,' near Avignon, but it moved away before the pilots could identify it." 159. A collective generic family? The following could have been included in any part of this 12 month period since the date is unknown. One afternoon in 1954, most probably during the Fall UFO wave, a UFO was supposed to have been photographed by a Frenchman while it sailed over Rouen, France. The picture is important, because UFO ex-

81 68 pert Allan Hendry charged that UFOs, as reported by various witnesses, lacked any indication of a "collective genenc family," which is to say objects being seen by people don't really resemble one another. This lack did not make sense to Hendry unless all UFOs were due to fantasy, hoaxes, or misperceptions. We could argue the point, but it is just being mentioned as a way to introduce the Rouen photograph which bears such a strikingly compatible profile with the famous 1950 Mc,innville, Oregon, picture. (See illustration). Unfortunately the pilot that took the Rouen photograph chose toremain anonymous which reduces the value of the case Before we leave this subject, we might ponder some remarks by Hr. Adrian Vance, West Coast Editor of!3jular Photo~~ and author of UFOs, The '~ And The Camera: "The McMinnville photograph had achieved such notoriety, exemplified by a full page picture in Life magazine, that the members of the Condon Committee could not overlook:lt without showing their hand, but an obscure foreign pilot whose picture had appeared in a few European papers could be ignored. And he was." 161. And:"The Condon Committee was certainly capable of tracing this man and could guarantee him anonymity, but no such atterrq:>t was made!" 162. ~bre from Stringfield: "In Florence, Italy, a 13-year-old boy reported an object 'whirling like a top' over the city. And from the Swiss border town of tuino comes the report of a slivery object flying at great speed. Many witnesses said it made noise." 163. The shift south. Avignon is in southern France, that, and the fact there was an increase in sightings coming from Italian territory while French reports were beginning to abate, shows the southern shift in operation. October 19th. Livorno, Italy. (no time known) A pair of UFOs trailing smoke were suppose to have dived down to a landing near Bruno Senesi, a fellow who claimed he saw some diminutive red beings jump out of the UFO and run towards him. Senesi fled the area as quickly as he could as the creatures gave chase. This story may or may not have a particle of truth but authorities said the man hadbeen admitted to a hospital in a hysterial condition, screaming and shaking October 19th. Gorizia, Italy. (7:20p.m.) A bit different was the?tory told by a Filippo Corridoni who said he saw something near the Isonzo River, what looked to be a balloon at ground level, its low altitude apparently due to its half-inflated condition. He also saw close to the balloon a "flying saucer" about 30 feet wide resting on a kind of frame work(tri-pod landing gear?). The "saucer" was white in color and was topped with a portholed dome. Bluish-white light showed through some of the ports. Abruptly this light was switched off and the object zoomed away, spinning on its axis. The balloon left with the circular craft, either being towed or sucked along by air pressure October 19th. Fabriano, Italy. (9:30p.m.) ''Dhano da skgyay o dbano." The wrds mentioned aboye were attributed to two "robot-like" figures that were suppose to have emer~ from an 18~foot-wide saucer that gave off violet flashes of energy. The "robots," with strange red eyes, did not luing around t; -'

86 72 long when they were confronted by two Italian men. The "robots" boarded their craft for a quick escape after jabbering in their incomprehensible language October 20th. Raon L'Etage, France. (2:30 a.m.) In the dead of the night a Czech living in France, M. Lazlo Cyvari, claimed he had encountered a rature human-like saucer pilot near his home in Raon L'Etage. The stranger, Cyvari said, wore a helmet like that worn by motorcyclist and a gray jacket decorated with insignia. The heavy-set pilot showed a gtm. and conversed in Russian, wanting to know which country he had landed in. The UFO pilot then left in a machine~hat looked like two big saucers placed rim to rim Russian, British, or? Evidently the Czech fellow wanted people to think Stalin's boys were trespassing on NATO territory, however that clashed with the opinion of the noted Italian airman Signor Manor Lualdi who was quoted by the press as saying: "If I had to bet on the origin of the saucers, I ''lould say they are British." 168. October 20th. St. Valery En Caux, France. (early morn1ng) A number of Frenchmen watched several UFOs in the sky over St. Valery En Caux for two hours. The objects went through various maneuvers but unfortunately this activity was not recorded. One of the objects was said to have given off a brilliant glare as it came down in a pasture. Two other objects were seen emitting "light signals," at least that was the impression the observers on the ground had. One of the French witnesses, N. Michele Vitkosusky, thought the objects were "communicating with each other." 169. October 20th. Cyprus. "Fat cigar." British aircraft? (See BllJE BOOK document) October 20th. Lusigny Forest, France. {early evening) Intense heat was the main feature of the reported experience of a Roger Reveille, who said that during a stroll through the Lusigny Forest a sound like a "flock of pigeons" alerted him to an oval machine some 18 feet in diameter some distance away hovering just above the treetops. Shortly there after the object zoomed straight up out of sight October 20th. Turquenstein, France. (6:30p.m.) "Road blocked." Truck driver Jean Schoubrenner noticed that the road ahead was lit up by a bright glow as he drove along Route N393 near the village of Turquenstein. As his truck approached the area of radiant energy, M. Schoubrenner could see that the lumination was coming from a big "inyer~ cone-shaped object" that was glowing all over. At the top of the object was a yellow-orange tip. As his vehicle approached within 30 feet of the object, Schoubrenner felt paralyzed and an increase in heat the closer he got. Much to his relief, the object moved away in a northwest direction and with its departure the high temperature in the truck cab dropped to normal and feeling returned to his anns and legs. 171.

88 74 October 20th. Bonne-Esperance, Belguim. (7:30 p.m.) Emitting a hum, the object hovered at an altitude of about 20 feet. A beam of light, like a headlight, shone out from the dark mass. A man on a bicycle rode up. Apparently in reaction, the object sped out of sight. Right after that a second UFC,rnuch l~ke the first one,was spotted making a hurried departure October 20th. Parravicino D"Erba, Italy. (night) "Attacked by a little man with a ray gun." Renzo Pugina put his car in the garage, locked it up, and then walked toward his front door, a bunch of keys in his right hand. Everything seemed normal to Senor Pugina as he strolled across the yard until he spotted a small, strange figure standing next to a tree with a "gtm?" pointed at him. The figure was a "little man" about four tall and dressed in a glowing suit of some sort. Suddenly a beam of energy was directed at Senor Pugina and he felt "frozen" to the spot. Exerting himself to the utmost, Senor Pugina fought the paralysis but could only manage to move some fingers, closing his fist around his keys. Grasping the keys very hard, Pugina felt himself breaking free of the power that held him hostage(there may ~e a scientificclue here if the story is true), and enraged by being "shot," rushed at his -~ assailant but his advance was thwarted when the diminutive Figure rose upwards out of reach without Jl'!Uch effort. That the little man utili-zed soi'ie machanical aid to defy gravity was indicated by a barely audible '.ffiirring noise as the being lifted off. What happened next is not recorded. A police investigation discovered a spot oil at the locatiryn that may have had some connection with the incident, but there was no mention of any test results. Senor Pugina complained that after the encounter he ran a temperature and suffered from shock October 21st. Puzzuoli, Italy. "DOO VICI'IM OF A FLYING SAIJCffi." (no time known) The Swansea, England, lvestern Mail used the headline above to tell the tale of a canine fatality-ar-a-smarr-town in Italy near Naples. At a place named Puzzuoli, the story says, there was a rubber factory. and some of the workers there were standing outside the building where they had a view of the sky. These men sighted something strange in the air above them so they stopped what they \iere doing to stare. With the workers was a Pekingese dog. The Mail reported:''they and the dog saw a silver object stop in mid-air for fifteen seconds, and then rise vertically with a hissing sound. The Pekingese, they said, yelped at the apparition, then dropped dead." 174. October 21st. Melito, Italy. (no time known) Authorities were informed by a young Italian man he had encounted an unusual flying craft in a field outside of Melito. A rustling sound, he saio, drew his attention to an area where a strange object rested. The object gave off a powerful light consisting of bronze-green rays. Illuminated by the light, the ymmg Italian could see an "occupant" of the craft emerge. The figure was dressed in a "diving suit." A dog in rteighborhood began to bark violently which apparently scared the "saucer man" because he quickly retreated back inside his craft and left in a hurry October 21st. Pons, France. (no time known) '.

89 75 An "egg' 15 feet in diameter came in for a landing on a road near Pons according to some witnesses.. A pair of "dwarfs" disembarked for a few moments and then climbed back aboard. The takeoff immediately thereafter was straight up and left b'~hind a crimson trail The Roestenberg case. October 21st. Ranton village, Staffordshire, England. (4:45p.m.) A tremendous hissing, like water being poured on a hot stove, rent the air over the white washed brick cottage of Jessie Roestenberg the afternoon of October 21st. Her small home was 3Ji miles from the town of Stafford, England. There were no inmediate neighbors rfuich was unfortunate because of what she was later to tell authorities. According to her story, her ~ boys, eight -year-old Anothony and sixyear-old Ronald, were outside playing while she was working in the kitchen. The boys suddenly became so excited Mrs. Roestenberg went outside to determine the cause. To her astonishment she saw that a "flying saucer"cwas hovering low in the sky over the cottage, a disc of an aluminum color that reflected brilliantly in the sun's rays, nonetheless it was so close Mrs. Roestenberg could see considerable detail. The bottom section of the object was stationary, and just above that was a section that was revolving. The upper portion was a stationary dome with tlvo big "windows." The disc was tilted at an angle, she said, enabling her to get a good look through the transparent panels. It also enabled "those inside" to regard her better. She claimed there were two beings, clearly visible, gazing down at her with stem, compassionate, expressions. UFO book author Gavin Gibbons interviewed Mrs. Roestenberg and he wrote: "She recalls that they looked very like Earthly men, with white skins. ". and long hair down to their shoulders. Their foreheads seemed immensely high, with the features almost entirely in the bottom half of their faces.,. Their heads were enclosed in what appeared to be some sort of transparent helmet and they were dressed in clothes of turquoise blue that resembled ski suits that Hrs. Roestenberg had seen." 177. The family dog ran off yelping and the boys fell to the ground iii fear, according to l.frs. Roestenberg. She continued to watch, appalled at. the sight. as the machine switched on a flashing purple-blue light and rose silently higher into the atmosphere. " The woman said she dashed back into the cottage to make a drawing of what she had just witnessed, but before she could get started she heard the boys making a fuss again so she returned to the yard, arriving ~n time to see the saucer fly a circle around her farm and then zip away faster than any jet plane she had ever seen. The saucer left behind a thin, dark, ribbon of vapor. Not long afterward Mr. Roestenberg arrived home from his assistant architect job in Stafford and learned of the amazing event. The local constable was sujd"ooned to investigate, and after interogating t~e witnesses, came away convinced there may be sanething to the flying saucer business afterall. It was tlte s:onstable th~t passed the story on to the press. Hoax or reality? The Roestenberg case does not end here, for in seems the husband "had a queer hunch" he would see SOI'Iething too, and climbed to roof of his home to keep watch a few days after the "saucer visit." If we are to believe him, hi" "premonltion" proved correct when he caught sight of an "enormous sau-

90 76 sage-shaped" object(divided into four sections)flying a ~ed course only a mile away! And that was not all. Ch December 15, 1954, the husband was supposed to have "lucked out again" and just happened to spot a mysterious ball of fire that remained immobile in the air his home until it fled at the approach of an aircraft. UFO researcher/writer Gibbons paid a visit to the Roestenbergs and found that the family seemed sincere enough, but any experienced UFO "expert" would have reservations about the husband's ''hunches," especially since it turned out Mrs. Roestenberg made a claim about certain "mental powers." 178. Accorcing to UFO researcher Wilfred Daniels, Mrs. Roestenberg had for years fej:r she was a "psychic," and that for a m.unber of hours prior to the "space ship appearance," she had a "queer feeling" something was about to happen, at least that was her peculiar claim. Years before during a seance a medium directed a COIIDllent to t.lrs. Roestenberg, pronouncing her a psychic of considerable ability, a compliment she never forgot. While denying she was a full-blown spiritualist, ~Irs. Roestenberg said she did experience on one occasion a "spirit manifestation of the spectral sort." Her aunt, she admitted, was a practising "psychic healer." 179. In Gibbon's mind, and to any UFO buff worth his salt, the possible flaw in the "strange affair at Ranton" was that it had a George Adamski smell, the American who at that time was the darling of England's occult society. The only possible support Gibbon could find for f-irs. Roestenberg' s story was a belated UFO report in a regional newspaper, the ~ress and Star, concerning witnesses at St. Hary' s Catha lie school whick lst('cateaiil the general area of Stafford. Witnesses reported a speeding, reddish-brown, circular domed object at the time of the supposed Ranton incident. This object passed overhead at an estimated 5,000 feet "making a noise like a regular airplane." En~ lang.'s 01-m. "Adamski." ~rrs. Roestenberg might have also been inspired by England's own "Adamski," a certain "Cedric Allingham" who!e contactee book appeared in the bookstores on October 11th, a work that received widespread press attention, the French weeky Radar even giving the Englishman's "encounter with a man from t-lars" a full page treatment. This "Allingham" fellow not only took a picture of the saucer. like Adamski, but also got a snapshot of the pilot, topping the Californian. Unfortunately both pictures were blurred, and if one finds that-suspicious, its an opinion widely shared. According to"alling_ham's"book, Flying Sailcer From t-lars, a circular craft with a portholed dome landed near-lossi'emouffi; scoitand, on February 18, "Allingham," a supposed writer-ornithogist-astronomer, happened to be in the right place at the right time, we are told, and as luck would have it, the man's bird watching kit(camera, sketch pad, and binoculars) came in f!andy. When the craft came to a rest, a "normal-looked man" 1 earing a one-piece coverall stepped out of a hatch and approached the astonished witness. As the saucer pilot drew near, "Allingham" noticed some small tubes protruding from the alien's nose which the Englishman assumed were breathing aids so the visitor could adapt to the atmosphere. "Allingham" said he tried to converse with the spaceman but was unable to breach the language barrier. Producing his sketch pad which he carr~ed on his outings so he could make renderings of the birds he observed, "Allingham'' drew a rough diagram of the sun and the nine planets. The vis it or understood and pointed out ~Iars as his home world.

91 77 There was no more corrmunication. The ~fartian" returned to his ship and entered it. The saucer rose, titled a little, and then zoomed away at high speed. There was supposed to have been someone in the area that observed all this, a "James Dtmcan," so runs the account, which wa.:; suppose to support the reality of the encounter Girvan has doubts. One English UFO buff most interested in the landing story was London publisher Waveney Girvan, who wanted to believe events occurred as discribed but had some doubts:"the main weakness in the Allingham story is that the witness, James Dtmcan, carmot be traced, and the author admits that in the excitement of the occasion he omitted to ask for his address." 181. Girvan, who had taken a big chance and published Adamski's.E!Y~ Saucers Have Landed, \vas puzzled by the fact that "Allingham" never approa ed hllll ~ would have been the quickest way(he thought) to turn the manuscript into a published book. Girvan:"... instead he sent it to a publisher(frederick r-rullerr who, previously, had shown no interest at all in the subject." 182. (Girvan neglects to express surprise at the quick acceptance of the work by ~fuller) Who is "Allingham?" Of course there were a lot a people who wanted to talk t0 "Allingham," but when enquiries were made for the purpose of setting up an interview, the book's publisher insisted the author ''was sick" and unable to meet with those who sought to question him about the 'ineeting with a saucer pilot in Scot.!!llld." Not long after the book \vas published, ;vithout ever making a public appearance, "Allingham" was reported to have "died." It tools 30 years to discover the apparent truth. A tjfo researcher by the name of Chris Allan pursued some leads and determined that the real author. of Fly~ Saucer From Hars was not a "Hr. Allingham," but the viciously anti- UFOastronomer Patnck f.fore. This made sense to another researcher, Jenny Randles, because it explained Hoare's strange obsession with the "Allingham" contact for decades as an example of how the UFO subject was "absolute rot," a puzzling tactic since the supposed encounter only enjoyed a brief period of notoriety before being relagated to the trash heap of UFO history. Randles did some checking of her own and learned from others that Allan was correct in fingering Moore, even personal friends of the astronomer concurring in the charge, yet Hoore always denied the allegation, hurling insults at Allan and threatening to sue both him and Randles if the hoax accusation saw print. Well, its been years since the accusation saw print, but as yet ~loore has not dared to air his differences with his accusers in open court. 183 A conspiracy? If investigators Allen and Randles are right about the story being a fabrication, then there is the distrubing possibility others helped Hoore put it over because Girvan's \vritings gives us reason to believe such a idea. Girvan \Yrote at the time: "The only testimony that I can noo put fon.>ard is that those who

92 't:;; 78 have met Mr. Allingham have been convinced of his veracity and sincerity. Included among these people are a representative of the!!_al!y Nail and his publisher who, prior to the meeting, was not numoered among the believers in the flying saucer Perhaps UFO researchers can be forgiven if they have thoughts about "disinformation schemes" by the "powers -that-be" if Moore is guilty. It boggles the mind otherwise to think a respected scientist and popular science author like Moore would flirt with professional suicide without a very good reason. In the Fall of 1954 with "occupant" cases proliferating, the Allingham book helped to discourage investigative journalists and scientists from taking a good look at the UFO reports being made, reports that seemed to be getting better every day while official explanations ~eca~ ever ~ore unbelievable. "Paper flying saucers." Not all UFOs \-rere "spaceships." A Bouvry-les-Bethune miner, M. Victor d'oliveira, manufactured and sent aloft over 1,000 ten foot high balloons ~de of strong grey paper, the hot air supplied by payloads of burning parrafin-soaked rags. The mner's creations were impressive in flight, appearing yellow and orange in color and no doubt were responsible for many saucer sightings. The "paper saucers" l-lere a well kept secret until one balloon nearly set a haystack ablaze which attracted the attention of the police (See newsclipping) Another "hot air" story.. The Communists in Romania announced about this time: '111e saucers are not unknown weapons, but simply large pieces of cardboard, wrapped in silver paper, attached to balloons and lighted with ls lamps powered by a battery.

93 79 ~ith this primitive instrument which it has brought to Europe, the United States wants to impress those people who believe American propaganda, and wants to stir up against!vloscow a flying saucer psychosis." 186. October 21st. Near Pouzou, France. (no time known) Painful prickling. A glowing red mass positioned 1tself over a road near Pouzou, in the department of Charente. In the distance an auto approached. At the wheel was a resident of the town of Olerbonnieres on his way to Pouzou. A passenger in the vehicle was the driver's young son, a three-year-old. The driver noticed the red mass up ahead, and as his auto got nearer and nearer, a prickling like an electrical shock swept over his body and kept increasing in intensity. The young child evidently felt the same pain because the toddler began to act up. Soon after the auto's headlights went out and the engine stopped turning over. Once the auto lost polver, it rolled to a stop. Th.e red mass down the road turned an orange color and emitted a blinding brillance. Suddenly the strange object vanished and at the same time the auto's headlights and engine returned to normal operation October 21st. Reut ingen, Germany. ( 6: 4 5 p.m. ) The French journal L' Astronomie informed its readers a German by the name of Januszewski observea a pa1r of pale oval bodies moving at tremendous speed over the city of Reutingen October 21st. Criteuil-La-Madeleine, France. (8:00 p.m.) As M. Filloneau drove near Criteuil-La-Madeleine he got the fright of h1s life. A "ball of fire" dove at his auto, passing so close a rush of wind shook the vehicle. The close pass had other effects too. The man told the press: "The battery t... as dead and the headlights were burned out." 189. The police conducted an enquiry but found nothing that could explain the damage. October 22nd. If one checks U.S. Air Force BLUE BOOK files for this date he will find a note saying "40 newsclippings concerning fireign UFO reports" were placed on f'ile yet only a single item telling of an Italian hoax can be located in the official records with the other 39 newspaper stories missing. (See BLUE BOOK document) October 22nd. Haryville, Ohio. (3:15p.m.) Leonard Stringfield phoned, a Mr. \'Iarrick of the Marysville Jerome school to confirm a newsstory about a web-like substance that was supposed to have fallen out of sky when a UFO was in the area. Mr. Warrick was very cooperative when Stringfield called and confirmed everything that had appeared in the press accounts, adding that the flying cigar first appeared over the Jerome school at 3:15.p.m. The thing, Mr. Warrick said, had no tail or wings but did" seem to have "windows," a fact that was difficult to establish since the light being emitted from the object was blinding. The l'lilky-white material fell in strands and balls October 23rd. san Giovanni Vesuviano, Italy. (1:00 a.m.)

95 81 An object about six feet across and giving off a clear light was resting next to the road near San Giovanni, Italy. Out of curiosity two motorists stopped to investigate. As they approached the object, the thing turned red and took to the air, quickly leaving the area October Z3rd. Tripoli, Italy. (3:00 a.m.) The "perfect landing." The next case was called the ''perfect landing" by UFO researcher Jacques Vallee for a rather complex reason that should only expounded upon after a full survey of the Fall wave is told. Until then, we will just deal with relating the basic story: "An Italian farmer saw a flying craft descend to ground level about SO meters away with a sound like that of a compresser. It was an eggshaped machine with six wheels and complex machinery. The top half was transparent and flooded with bright white light. Aboard were six. men in yellowish overalls, having human faces. When he touched part of the craft the l'iitness felt a strong electrical shock. One of the occupants motioned him to stay away. For the next ZO minutes the witness was able to observe the six men apparently busy with instruments. The craft then rose silently to SO meters then took off at 'dizzying' speed. Reliable investigations were made and the imprint of six wheels were clearly visible.." 192. The New Yorker's "Paris Letter." A big story about the French saucer flap could be found in an unlikely place, the pages of The New Yorker, in the magazine's "Paris Letter" feature. The writer of the essay iiiiirverrea-at the reported variety and extent of the phenomenon. To name a few he mentioned: dancing crescents over Lille witnessed by hundreds; a village mayor, gendarme, and respected hotelkeeper all seeing a "flying cigar over Ueauville; three independent witnesses reporting strange orange-colored flying cylinders that turned white when they suuddenly zoomed straight up over the town of Nienre; a pilot and member of the Societe of Ingenierurs penning a letter to the editor describing an object like a thick circular wing spinning through the air around his country home for ZO minutes. And then of course there were those people who said they "personally met men from Hars." In many of these cases, as the writer of the article explained, the witnesses to these "visions" ivere what the French call "digne de +oi," or persons worthv of belief. As ex.~les the writer mentions: a wealthy Normandy farmer and his wife, reputable mechanics and electricians' the police inspector for the city of Nice, a famous French bicycle racer, a school teacher on Oleron island, the Conseiller General des Alpes-!vlaritimes, and one peasant who had to be literary dragged from his bed to see his saucer October Z3rd. Buenos Aires, Argentina. (no time known) By late October the southern shift of the UFO phenomena became IUOie marked than ever when a significant number of reports began to roll in from South America. The first case of note was on the Z3rd when a luminous object changed colors alternately, stopped in mid air, started again making many course changes while flying around in the sky above Buenos

96 82 Aires, Argentina. It was quite a show and of course did not fail to generate crowds of witnesses OctGber 23rd. St-Hilaire-des-Loges, France. (night) One French family acted differently than some. At the Boeuf ann outside St-Hilaire-des-Loges, the woman of the household happened to spot a luminous disc hovering over the property. She surranoned the rest of the family to come and see the remarkable sight. Everyone rushed out doors and stared at the thing in the sky, but when the object suddenly moved toward them, the family became panicky and rushed back inside the house, barring the doors and windows. For the rest of the night no one slept October 24th. Porto Alegre, Brazil. (no time known) On Brazil's Atlantic coast about 500 miles south of Sao Paulo, lies the city of Porto Alegre. Nearby is the Brazilian Air Force base of Gravatai. The second major UFO case of the Fall 1954 South American wave occurred in this area. Like the sky show over Buenos Aires the day before, this incident was protracted. For three hours a pair of egg-shaped objects maneuvered over the area in a sun-lit cloudless sky, moving at great speed, and once in a while making ~brupt course changes. fumy civilians watched the impressive display, as well as a number of Brazilian Air Force officers and enlisted men. One of the military men was Major ~lagalhaes Motta who followed the object's antics with binocullars. A report was submitted to the Brazilian High Command A contrast. In France the newspaper France-Dimmache devoted alomost its entire October 24th cootie page to a humorous treatment of the "saucoupes." (The cartoons are shown on pp.63-64) In contrast in the United States a serious essay appeared in The American ~eekly by the famed rocket scientist Hermann Oberth who concli:iiiea:tne' Bart was host to a race of space visitors he chose to call ''Uranides." 197.

99 85 blame for the excitement on fantastic Gallic imaginations and a French press gone wild. The editors loved the French cartoons and the more bizarre tales of paralyzing pygmies running amuck.?-1. Jean Narcy' s whiskered draw in an orange corset got top billing (See article) Brazilian Air Force Base Command. In another part of the world the saucer question was being treated more seriously. The Brazilian military was highly concerned about reports received from the Porto Alegre area the day before. The Gravatai Air Base- Conmand admitted to the press the objects in question were viewed by both military personnel and civilians, plus employees of the Vargas Airline. The Air Ministry in Rio de Janeiro, a.base spokesman said, had authorized an investigation. Unlike the U.S. military, the Brazilians did not hesitate to comment. The Base Commander issued this statement within 24 hours of the sighting: "It is impossible to calculate the altitude or velocity of which the objects moved, but the speed was greater than that of any which the base has knowledge. Their general shape was circular, they were silver-colored and shimmering. The objects were not celestial because their movements appeared to be mechanical and intermittent." 201. O:tober 25th. Yugoslavia. There was a furor in Yugoslavia when scores of bluish glowing- ol)jects streaked over the countryside. The national Meteorological Bureau based in Belgrade tracked a trio of what it said was metallic-like objects with glowing blue tails. The objects passed over in a V-formation. The altitude of the flight was guessed to be about 9,000 feet and the velocity at 2,000 mph Yugoslavian astronomers rejected a meteor explanation and the Belgrade government authorities admitted that the situation was ''being taken very seriously." 203. O:tober 25th. Arraye-et-Han, France. (6:30 p.m.) It was six feet long by three feet high according to M. l.fahou, a nnmicipal councillor. The object startled the man when it suddenly shot skyward from the surface of the road and raced into the heavens, leaving behind a glmring streak. The Frenchman said the thing resembled a "phosphorescent chicken brooder." 204. O:tober 25th. I..es 1>-ietairies, France. (8:30 p.m.) A Mme. Louis and her sons, Marc and Yvon, were working their farm late in the day on O:tober 25th. They were using a tractor. Because of the increasing darkness the farm machine's headlights were on. According to these farm folk an orange-colored body the size of an auto suddenly streaked overhead. At the same time the tractor stopped running and its headlights went out. Afterwards, while trying to restart the tractor, the boys found that the battery was fully discharged October 26th. Angouleme, France. (6:00a.m.) Another strange object was seen next to a road 18 kilometers from the city of Angouleme by a French couple, a H. Vincent Casamajou and his wife. This object was larger than the one reported by H. r.tabou near Arraye-Et-Han. The thing was estimated to be the size of a truck and had the appearance of what the witness said was a "large cauldron." The UFO vaulted skyward soundlessly, leaving a white trail b~hind. 206.

(Evening) A fanner said a figure of nonnal height dressed in a "diving suit-type" outfit zapped him with two beams of energy knocking hi.11 to the ground. If the supposed being had arrived in a saucer, it was not parked where the victim, M. Aime Boussard, could see it late October. Hysteria. Walschied, France. Reporting on the French UFO wave, Nexus. editor James Moseley enjoyed publishing the following for his American readers: "... the Lorraine village of Walschied was terrified by a report that men from Mars had landed in a villager's garden. Womanfolk dashed into the church, hoping for divine sanctuary, while the men grabbed scythes, clubs, and guns, and proceeded to march against the garden. There stood the invaders, half human size, heads glowing, and motionless. It tuned out that they were big chrysanthemtmis, the resident had covered t.;ith brilliant cloth against the frost." 208. October 26th. Heiteren, France. (9:30 p.m.) Coming out of the western sky, a strange object swooped down to a landing about a mile from where a Mme. Spinner tms standing. No more details are known October 27th. A Lutheran bishop comments. Expressing his personal conviction that the recent European UFO reports represent visitors from space, the Lutheran bishop of Oldenburg, Germany, Gerhard Jacobi, wrote for the church weekly Unsere ~that: "Although their size and shape may differ from ours, Olrist is their Lord in any case, t.fuether they are aware of it or not.. the faithful have always knmv.n and confessed that Olrist is the Lord of all beings "J;hat live on any billions of planets." 210. October 27th. Ciolica Alta, Italy. (2:00p.m.) "Strong emotions." When a young Italian man heard a loud hissing sound, he investigated its origin and discovered a strange object resting in a field giving off a blinding light. The sight was so frightening to the fellow, a Senor Fabrizio Bruin, he was overcome by "strong emotions." The object suddenly shot upwards, zooming vertically while spewing out a faint trail. Glistening white threads were then seen falling. Angel Hair? 2ll. October 27th. Prato, Italy. (daytime) In downtown Prato there was a hotel that fronted on the Piazza San Harco. Two Italian men, a Senor Lucchetti and a Senor Lastrucci, were on the hotel terrace the afternoon of the 27th where they had a good view of the sky. The two men looked up and saw a pair of speeding "luminous spindles," one behind the other, spewing white vapor. The trailing spindle was seen to pull

101 87 By Ronald BaU:helor 1 [ o.. t-. "Z.C: aou<m i's'f 1 ~AlROBI, Kenya.-A lead ' mg Kenya astronomer IS con-: vmced that v1sitors! r o m outer space are observmg and mapping the earth, and have recently been directing their "flymg saucer'' ftlght.s over - - East Africa. G. Duncan Fletl!her, vice president of the Kanya Astronomical AssOClaUon, came to this conclus on after studymg the deluge of llymg saucer re-. ports from observers 1n 1 Uganda, Kenya and Tangan Yika. ' Fletcher himself recently observed something in the sky over N a1rob1!rom ba observ atory here. «Jt was about T 40 p. m. that r had!our friends m my observatory.~ he relates. "Very low and toward the east. there was a large llght in the sky wluch bad no relationship to anytlung a s t r o nonucal. to,-erey hgbts or to the a1rcraft \\hlch had just landed at the, a1rp9rt." The ac,l.,..ll.,..tu""'d:-e-o!-=-the "object"l, wu about 2000!eeL H was stationary when first spotted and "emllted a bright orange llgbt. This llght brightened to a yellowish color and the object rose, dropped and then ro<e agam, finally d1sa~>o Jleanng through the clouds. fletcher saysthere 1s iio question about the genwneness of reports about llymg saucers. WhiCh uhave been g1ven by very nper1enced observers" m all parts of the world. "Not all the people who have: seen these umdentllied ftymg, objects have been suffering!rom hallucmatlons," he declares. Tbe most encouraging thing about reports of umdenl.llled Jlymg objects, Fletcher avers, :s that "they seem to be friendly towards the people of this planet." "From all the Information which Is available they are steadily mappmg every part of 1 our earth. _ 1 ~ - "There iioei'niit seem to be any doubt that they are nules ahead of us 1n their methods of propulsion, and reports ll ave been made by observers who have seen these urudentllied Jlying ob)ects o v e r atom1c plants, dockyards, ar.rfields. naval bases and some of the larger c Ues of the world.

I do not thmk that. until we had -made every possible mvesbga tiim, we would land.

Is pulled at an ever mcreasing velocity by gravtty towards the earth. This velocity becomes so great that the object bums up because of the l.lltense heat generated by fricuon wtth our atmosphere. '"A meteorite does not rtse or hover In the &Jr. Its path 1.\1 a parabolic curve slllll.lar to that of a shelllired from a gun. 1 Therefore, the things wh1eh we have seen are undoubtedly un I Jdenlllled l!y1ng objects." Fletcher doesn't pretend lo' know how the objects operate,; what they contam or where they come from. But he gtves I thl$ advice: "Viglianee and al {nend!y approach to thetr overtures would appear to be the best course ru9!1~-

102 88 abreast of the leading one, and once both "cigars" were parallel, they executed a 45 degree course change that put both objects on a southeast heading ip the direction of the city of Florence about 10 miles away ,000 witnesses! Florence, Italy. (2:20-2:29 p.m.) l'li thin minutes of the UFO' s departure from Prato, a soccor match at the city of Florence was interupted as two spheres flew over the stadium. The action stopped on the playing field as the players and the 10,000 spectators watched the objects pass out of sight. If the witnesses reported the UFOs accurately at both Prato and Florence, they,could not be the same objects, but it seems the skies of Florence was full of strange things that afternoon. Elsewhere besides the sports field numerous witnesses reported pairs of strange objects passing over the city on at least three different occasions during a nine minute period(2:20-2:29 p.m.). Like the incident at Prato, strands of "Angel hair-like" material rained down on the city. Excitement was widespread. Police stations and newspaper offices ~~ere deluged with phonecalls "Boron-silicon glass." A sample of some Florence "Angel hair" filaments was given a spectroscopic examination by the University of Florence, a testing that revealed elements of silicon, calcuim, boron, and magnesium, which the experts at the school said were the basic components of a material known to them as ''boron-silicon glass." 214. Professors Danilo Cozzi and Giovanni Canneri conducted the study of the mysterious strands. Dr. Canneri commented on his verdict: "It is a material_ of fibrous composition possessing notable resistance to.tration and torsion. l~en subjected to heat it turned to a darker shade and volatilized, leaving a fusible transparent residue." 215. October 27th. Linzeu:x:, France. (night) A UFO skimmed over the roof of a car in the area of the French town of Linzeu:x:. The passengers inside experienced an electrical shock and the vehicle's engine died. As in other cases similar to this, the headlights.went out The Holy Land. Late October (exact day not known) (no time known) Leonard Stringfield's newsletter reported: '1be Jewish ~onent reports saucers spotted twice over Israel, late October, causmg considerable excitement. Inhabitants of Mahne Yehuda saw their 300 feet above the maket area. It was described as a 'round house with smoke pouring from its windows flashing toward the Mediterranean. the second, cigar-shaped, was seen over Jerusalem moving with great speed toward the sea." 217. October 27th. Peru. (no time known) An engineer observed a UFO from a location in Peru's Chicama Valley on the 27th. The object was an elliptical shape giving off pulsating flashes of light as it crossed the sky, moving fast and then slow. At one point the object "fell diagonally," losing some of its luminosity. The thing stopped its fall at an altutude of about 300 ~eters where it hovered and regained its original br1lliance. 218.

103 89 October 27th. Les Jonquerets de Livet, France. (7:30p.m.) 1\'hat makes the next case stand out is its apparent duration. Working in his pear orchard farmer'gilbert Hee saw a strange cigar-shaped object in a nearby pasture. At either end of the object were lights but nothing that 1~as intimidating, nonetheless M. Lee hestitated to investigate although some of his cows had congregated at the spot out of bovine curiousity. The lights on the thing were suddenly extinguished for some reason so M. Hee returned to his fannhouse. The pasture where the object rested, it seems, was next to a road where some two hours later a young motorcyclist, M. Cheradame, lost control of his machine and took a bad tumble. Details ate lacking but evidently the 18-yearold saw the UFO and blamed it for the lost of power in his cycle, in any event, he gave the_alarm and some local people went to the pasture to check things out..-\!1 elongated object was spotted resting in a grassy area and nearby ~ foot tall figures in "bright armour" were seen moving about in a "stiff'' manner. Perhaps due to the approach of the witnesses, the figures disappeared and the UFO soundlessly became airborne October 27th. ~bussey, France. (8:30p.m.) A mysterious object landed on a Moussey schoolground where one o~ the pupils and the school principle saw the UFO. Strange marks of a triangular shape were left behind. No other details were given October 27th. Oye-Plage, France. (11:15 p.m.) The mayor's secretary had quite a story to tell after driving on Route 40. For a quarter of a hour her car was followed by a glowing cigar-shaped UFO. Only an estimated 60 feet above her vehicle, the "cigar" stayed with her car in~spite of the many bends in the road. Eventually the object tired of the game and sped away at a right angle October ~7th. Grosseto, Italy. (11:30 p.m.) A half hour before midnight Senora Ermellina Lanzillo peered out the window hoping to see her cat. Instead, her gaze beheld an "entity" in her garden, a being with a large head and "ape-like" eyes. Although the figure had narrow shoulders, its body seemed to be plump. She could not move when she first saw the creature but she assumes her immobility was due to terror because she gained the strength to move after a few moments and was able to yell for her niece. No more detail is available October 28th. ~ulan, Italy. (10:00 p.m.) "Spacemen welcomed with a shower of garbage." Or were they? According to an Italian group, "The National Unified Center for UFO Studies (Centro Unico Nazionale or a.jn)," which was established in 196~:: the famous Milan, Italy, case of October 28, 1954( that gained international notoriety after being written up in Frank Edwards' best seller ElY~ Saucers-Serious Business)was a hoax. The ajn people said the fantastj.c story was JUSt a mass jok'econducted at Tradate, a town near Milan The story itself, as well as the confession of boys that perpetrated the hoax, can be found in news accounts if one checks carefully enough. (See newsclippings) Not part of the hoax and of interest to the student of UFOs,was a mention in the newsclipping about the ~tilan landing" that referred to intense UFO activity over the city of Livorno and along the Adriatic coast, activitv apparently not well documented by even Italian UFO buffs.

105 91 October 28th. Rome, Italy. (daytime) The date of the second big UFO show is a bit unclear but it seems to have been on the 28th. _ UFOs soared silently over Italy's cap1tal and ~ reporter ~laurizio Andreolo wrote:"it looked like a moon dashing across the sky at fantastic speed. It flew silently." 224. The most famous eyewitness to the UFO passage was U.S. Ambassador Clare Booth Luce who was quoted as saying:"! saw something, but I don't know what it was." 225. An~ dispatch in the New York Journal-American printed a story that mentioned a trio of sky objects like "Irmnous coms" moving across the heavens in V-fonnation, and that:"a few declared they saw fine cotton or wool particles falling from the sky and hanging on telephone lines." 226. The Rome newspaper Giobale d' Italia commented on the strange filaments, stating that the:"... threads may be some new fonn of radar confuser' similar to the tinfoil dropped by bombers in the war." 227. Stateside. October 28th. Donald Keyhoe. Washington Airport again. Back in the States UFO crusader Donald Keyhoe read the European UFO dispatches with the greatest of interest, as one can imagine, although like most UFO researchers he had a hard time accepting "little men" stori.es ever since the far-out Frank Scully book. Keyhoe's writings on the UFO story were constructed in a sequential manner to give the impression of a day-to-day struggle for the truth, but during this period there wasn't much to do with all the action across the Atlantic, although on the 28th there was some more mysterious radar returns recorded by Washington National Airport, as well as visual sightings of odd lights in the sky. Jet interceptors were scrambled. The events reminded Keyhoe of the dramatic days of the summer of The CAA called the radar alert a false alarm, and the strange lights reported by Washington residents probably the landing lights on airliners. Keyhoe, growing ever more disillusioned with officials, blamed what he called the "silence group" for the hasty explanation and saw the CAA statement as really having an Air Force origin ''l'lartian declaration of war?" Estimates of "landings" in the saucer epidemic run as high as 100 in France and that may be not be anywhere near the true number. Amid all this fuss it was often the oddest story that got the most attention. Ol.ecking over a stack of news clippings) Nexus editor James Moseley singled out this one: "In Haute-Garonne a gendarme reported watching a saucer land in a field and seeing a troop of Martians 'the size of ten-year-old boys' deploy through the trees. lhe saucer was gone when the villagers got to the scene, and so were the Martians,but some papers were discovered lying on the ground. Savants of the University of Toulouse were asked to study them to see if this might be a Martian declaration of war. After some anxious hours, the documents turned out to be written in a dialect of Indo-Chinese. They had been dropped by some Indo-Olinese students on a picrtic two days earlier." 229.

109 95 E. J. Ruppelt. On the sidelines watched E.J. Ruppelt, former head of project BWE BOOK during its most tumultuous period. Friends in Europe were sending him data on the flap in France and other countries and Ruppelt couldn't help notice that the UFO controversy overseas mirrored to a large extent the American experience. Although no longer having any official status, Ruppelt kept informed. UFOs, he once ~VTOte, could be addictive, like strong drink October 28th. Yaounde, Cameroons. (daytime?) A sighting in mid-africa took place when a dog growled at the sky. People nearby looked up and saw a UFO at a low altitude. The principle witness was the head of a local hospital who described the object as:"... an enormous, stationary d_i~k, powerfully illuminated, mushroom-shaped and carrying beneath it a cylinder of a length equal to its own diameter, 1mich was dangling from it." 231. October 29th. Mesples, France. (7:45 a.m.) :-1. Gentilwas in her farmhouse the morning of October 29th when he heard a frantic knocking at her front door. She opened the door and found a tveeping teenage girl who was seeking safety because she Has being "chased by a saucer." CUts ide in the sky a whirling, red and purple colored disc could be seen. The thing soon dropred to a lower altitude and disappeared. The local police took an interest in the incident "Greatest turning point." A young Swiss professor of Psychology and Phiosophy, a Dr.. ~fred Nahon, established "The World Interplanetary Association" on October 28, 1954 at the city of Lausanne. He edited a weekly Swiss Radio broadcast lihich proclaimed:"the greatest turning point in humanity: the 'flying saucers."' Dr. Nahan had tvritten French President Mendes-France:"... calling his attention to the importance of some landings tvhich had then taken place in France." 133. The Nahan letter to the President \vas published in part by the influential French. weekly.!::' E::g:>ress. There is no record of a reply by the French Olief Execut1ve. October 29th. Philippine Islands. (1800Z) "Weird meteor" over the Pacific. October 29th. Island of Terceira, Azores. "Weird stovepipe" over the Azores. (See BLUE BOOK document) October 30th. ~ruro Lugan~, Italy. (9:30 a.m.) (See BLUE BOOK document) Some Italian hunters came across two UFOs while seeking game. One of the UFOs descended close to the treetops as they watched. The thingcould be seen as a "rhomboidic shape" with a cylinder suspended beneath it(see the October 28th Cameroons case). The UFO tvas so low the cylinder hit a tree a number of times..1\n odd sound ~Vas heard during the sighting but what caused it could not be determined. Eventually the "rohomboidic" object gained height and zoomed away, leaving a bluish streak in the atmosphere October 30th. P;ome, Italy. (daytime) UFO researcher professor Alberto Pergo lived through these hectic ~ days" and can attest to the fact that there was much m?re m::o a~tivity than one can find documented. He k:neh of at least 200 Itallan sj.ght1ngs for the

113 99 1'\0nth of Cctober 1954 and at least 19 supposed "saucer landings" in the country. The Italian newspapers, he recalled, cooled off as the month progressed, making UFO witnesses reluctant to report their experience, thus hindering a complete accounting of activity in the region. As an example Dr. Pergo relates a personal incident. On Cctober 30th at 1:00 p.m. while standing in front of the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in downtown Rome, Dr. Pergo noticed people in the area looking at the sky. He glanced skyward and spotted small white objects racing about, zooming here and there. The professor counted at least 100 people watching the UFOs but in the newspapers the following day there was no reference to any unexplained objects over the city Cctober 31st. Corrornpu, France. (no time known) Three Frenchmen encountered an oval object about ~ meters in diameter resting on the ground. Soon after its discovery, the object launched itself skyward and flew away, returning moments later, only to finall-y leave the area for good on a southwest course. The headlights of a tractor were affected during the incident. A light on the object was so intense it was compared to a welder's torch. A funny sound like a swarm of bees was heard A ''r-1artian" is shot. James Moseley wrote: "In the Oler Valley district, M. Pierre Langlois, a genial farmer, was trudging home through a downpour of rain when he encountered a man from ~Iars in a strangely luminous costume floating over and around a flying saucer, apparently mounting a death-ray gun. ~1. Langlois could see the glint of a metallic claw protruding from the Martian's sleeve. Not being easily intimidated, Langlois got a shotgun from his home and gave the Martian both barrels at 40 yards. There was a yelp of pain, and a passing motorist a fe~ minutes later picked up H. Andre Lacoste, in a white raincoat, with buckshot pellets in his arms and ribs. M. Lacoste turned out to be a traveling salesman from Bordeaux, who had been fixing the carburetor of his Renault with a monkey-wrench." 237. "1he Fifth Horseman." The "landing" cases did little to help the pro-ufo advocates, with so many of the reported incidents so outlandish they were hard to believe, a feeling reinforced when in a few instances culprits stepped forward and admitted the fabrication. It raised a question about the human mind. If so many people from all walks of life could lie about a "landing," what would keep them from committing the lesser sin of exaggerating a "light in the sky" sighting into a flying saucer? In short, was the UFO mystery so much humbug afterall? Any UFO buff that maintained a minimum level of objectivity was tormented by at least some skepticism. Even Air Force BUJE BOOK advisor Dr. J. Allen Hynek was confused, and he was suppose to be in a position to know something. Dr. Hynek's Girl Friday, Jenn~e Zeidman, could understand and sympathize with her boss since she was familar with BUJE BOOK paperwork. She also had her doubts about UFOs but she was sharp enough to realize something was missing from the equation, that she did not know the whole

114 100. story. She became aware that Dr. Hynek's job was hardly more then analyzing second-rate UFO reports, that the high-strangeness cases were apparently screened out of the weeky delivery of military 1WXs by Air Force courier, data that -was rarely classified higher than "Restricted." One day in the early 1950s Miss Zeldman was asked by Dr. 'Hynek to stop in on Dr. Lincoln LaPaz, world renown meteoriticist on the faculty of the University of New He:x:ico. Miss Zeldman felt uncomfortable in the presence of Dr. LaPaz, a longtime Pentagon consultant who had led military/scientific UFO investigation teams and therefore a possible ''high level insider." Mter talking a while to Dr. LaPaz, ~ss Zeidman realized the eminent professor and the government knew a lot more about UFOs then she could learn by her BllJE BOOK work. She realized this although LaPaz was careful about what he said and how he said it. Sensing her inadequacy, Miss Zeldman felt her side of the conversation was just "naive jabberings." When she made known her and Dr. Hynek's "general skepticism" about UFOs, Miss Zeidman got the shock of her life. LaPaz stared at her and made a chilling pronouncement he did not elaborate on:"ufos ARE 1HE FIF'IH HORSe-tAN OF TiiE APOCALYPSE." 238.
