The Air Force said that it had reached the following conclusion on five recent reports: 1. Levelland, Tex., where a big light supposebJy was seen by "dozens" in stalled automobiles. Investigation showed only three persons .claimed they saw the light. The Air Force said It was a familiar weather phenomenon of electrical nature caused by stormy conditions. The cause of stalled icars, it said, might have been wet (electrical circuits . 2. Alamagordo, N. M., reports of 10 stalled cars as well -as radio fade-out, "heat" light and . "sunburn." Investigation showed the originator of the report had pulled a "hoax, presumably suggested by the Levelland, Tex., reports." 3. A Coast Guard cutter in the Gulf of Mexico indicated the sighting of four objects, three oa radar and one visual. A study of the'radar returns, the Air. Force said, showed some were spurious or false. Others, it said, indicated one object moving 250 miles an · hour, suggesting a propeller aircraft,: arid another at 660 miles an hour, suggesting a jet air- jcraft.
