fwo Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Mysterious Box Contained Only a New Sputnik Idea WASHINGTON (DP) — Back- Stairs at the White House: Secret Service agents guarding President Eisenhower were given a jolt last week when a mysterious box was left outside the main gate of the Augusta, Ga., National Golf Club. The chief executive was on the golf course Wednesday afternoon when the box was; delivered by a messenger who left before S.S. could question him. Anxious agents, always alert to possible threats to the President's life, rushed the 2-by-2-foot wood container to nearby Ft, Gordon. There bomb disposal experts gingerly lifted the lid and found a weird contraction which was put together with'material like those used in model airplanes—paper over a balsa frame. It was a model "flying saucer" which its inventor said was "the answer" to Russia's Sputniks. .The invention was subjected to a thorough fluoroscopic examination which showed it contained no explosives. ;Agents concluded it was the work of a well-meaning but probably somewhat too atrriospheric- minded citizen. Tlje incident pointed up the meticulousness with which the men who are responsible for protecting the President examine everything sent to him. After the "missile"—or whatever it was—had been ruled safe, the Secret Service turned it over to the Air Force for closer inspection. The contraption was 20 inches fa diameter and came complete with four jet exhausts, a .tricycle landing gear and a half-inch-wide presumably for a radio antennae sticking out the top. The box which carried the space ship was addressed "Personal to President D. Eisenhower, Augusta, Ga." It was labeled. "Fragile. Handle with Care."
