ELMS (UrlUd Press Science Writer) Reports of "flying saucers" vvhlx- UK through the air at rocket speed's poured In again today from many parts of the nation, causing scientists to speculate that many Americans were sintering a bad cose ot jillers. One expert In the diagnosis or human behavior flally said lhat the so-called "phenomena" was pure Imagination, hallucination or delusion on the pail of many of those who reported seeing "slraiiBC objects." Another scientist, an authority on astronomy, said he believer! "some persons were seeing spots before their eyes." The new reports that "saucers" were observed came from Pennsylvania, New Jersey. Arkansas. Georgia, Idaho and other states in the far West. One commercial airline pilot said he had even chased one of the "saucers" and that he was unable to catch up with it. Another observer actually snapped a photograph, taken from about 10,000 feet — a long distance from which to photograph any kind of a flying object. His print showed two tiny dots in the center. One of the dots, he admitted, was a defect in the negative. The olher — supposedly the "object"— was little larger than a pin head. The airline pilot, reporting the "phenomena" was Capt. E. J. Smith of the United Airlines. He said he and his co-pilot. Ralph Stevens flying from Boise, Ida., late yesterday saw an object and chased it for 45 minutes.

(UP) _ president Truman relaxed on a "Hunt Country" cslalc here loday to nwait world-wide reaction to, his Fourth or July denunciation of nallojis blocking Europe's economic recovery. The chief executive was particularly anxious lo how ihe address lie delivered at Monliccllo was received In foreign capitals He Instructed White House aides to forward principal comment on Ihe speech lo Colle. Ihc 210-ncrc estate of Stanley Woodward, .slate department chief of protocol whu is Mr. Truman's weekend host. With most senators and rcmc- senlallvcs out of WnsiiiRlnn for the holiday weekend, congressional reaction lo ihc PioslrleiU's speech was .slow In taking form. However those who would comment were hcnrlrly in fnvor of Mr. Truman's strongly-worded rejection or Russia's "fallacious" argument agalnsl Ihc Marshall plan. Sen. Tom Connally, ])..

II, H. n.. an Influential member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, interpreted Ihc President's talk ns a strong argument for his own foreign Information program wljlcJi Is now before the Senate. "The entire speech." s: iid Mumlt "seemed predicted on the need for n full and free exchange of Information. The objective which ihc President-seeks can best be achieved through the Information program." In his address, delivered from llr: pillared portico of Thomas ,Icf!cr- son's home, Ihc President said Dial "our goal musl be — not peace In our lime — but peace for all time." "Surely alter two world wars, na- ens should have learned the folly of a nationalism so extreme as lo block cooperative economic plnn- iK among nations for peaceful reconstruction," he said. Though he did not mention rjus- sla by name, Mr. Truman made it Plain by every word and by every gesture of emphasis lhat he had the Soviet Union In mind when ho said: 'So long n.s the basic rights of men arc denied In any substantial portion of the earth, men everywhere musl live In fear of their own rights and their own security."
