Another picture which accompanics this article is "a UFO photographed by a Marine Air Group photographer in the Korean theater of operations This UFO flew relatively close to the aircraft then flew off at a rate of more than 1000 miles increased its acceleration and 'disappeared' It had a bright top and a sort of a bronze colored under portion" These pictures as well as the others in the book have not been published before the writer said Extra-terrestrial entities using electrical space-craft propulsion are "all around us" Allen de dares "The mystery is why this attention seems to be paid to Earth at this time—unless this space traffic has always been with us If it bas—and certainly there are indications that the UFO has always been with us—then the ruling powers-that-be who have oppressed the mind of man over the last few thousand years on this planet have been guilty of the universe's most incredible crime against humanity" At the outset the author says one of his purposes is to examine the problem of man's readiness to leave his "frog-pond prison on Earth" and to consider travel of the infinite "To the thinking man we must point out that his universse exists in only one place—his own mind" be adds "It Is a truism that it is man who must co-exist peacefully and in harmony with the universe because the universe cares not a whit about man It is he that must ' conform If he does not he is suddenly stricken with hundreds of man-made troubles" A Partial Premise Them he advances what he phrases as a partial premise of his work namely that man must learn to understand so he can pro ceed to some higher level of understanding through his accumulated worldly experience "It is his experience and background then that govern his ability to understand the reality of :m?Mrt'c1!!'llfrr:4'''Ilf:'r1:r:r :':':''-'5ig:"'''4064thii3bk'''1:':!::::'tI::: :yok z:t1::!:::::::: 1 :i- gwA:-t-:-: :::e--e ::::'')!i:::: -s:::::11-1-: ''!'t -4:i5P3::':: El: '''':!iiiii'-H'::::::::-::: ‘::ft i:t :K'::::::::i::: :1 f:: :::o:::::i0:4:ii3m: :i-:r"1:::::i:!:::) 1' : :i's":: :':4fe:gri:'': tkOa : A z: :-: " ''-::: ::sz:: ::-i'' r'- ':--:l:::: : 7-'-:i':17:'::::'::::i::' - '::f o‘‘ :: ''!i':-::-:-? -:4 :-) i" :::: :&-:::::::i:iii::::-: :i::::::: ?s::::?- J:::vi:moliiio: F :-:-::? : ti?::1-: ::'::::::::'::::r:f95' '::: :e : : : :::::::: :: - :::toc4: 1 :i: ::::::: - ' :: ::: c':ZS:::-1': :':4':':k-!': :: I :' 11 : ::Fi :::::::::::::::i-':: 1 : 4'':::': ''1?iti-AON:r : ::3 j !:::-:: 4 ''''''''i'eAg--4 '1 ::: :::5: :14 Vr'' :::::::-::-'::: :x:::i:::t ' :::::::::::i1 l'Us':::'::-: 4t': ::::::!':'::'i1 ?:::::! " :—::::l - 00 C::' :::::1 k t iikpx::xx I ' 'k IV Gordon Allen observed natural phenomena" the author continues Allen discusses at length the workings of a "world mind" in a chapter on new dimensions of thought resonators But the parts of the book which probably will be most fascinating to the easy-chair reader are the sections concerning sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects in various parts of the United States One of these reports published in the Portland Oregonian quotes John Truhan an Ohioan who incidentally was Allen's roommate at Louisiana Tech and who at present is part owner of station KBAM with Allen in Longview Wash Truhan described the UFO he saw as being "low and slow over Longview and that porthole-like spots were seen on the side of the cigar shaped craft" Dairyman Sights UFO Another example of experiences with UFO's concerns the Trent family who operate a dairy farm on the coast of Oregon at Cloverdale One day at a picnic Trent was engaged in taking family pietures when he looked up and saw a UFO hovering about 300 feet away at about 100 feet altitude lie quickly took two shots These pictures show the flat hat-shaped saucer somewhat in profile The saucer promptly flew away in a silver flash Allen points out that the Trents are "not metaphysicists not photo-fakers just good solid 'salt of the earth' people who have an excellent UFO picture" The book is filled with similar reports and experiences — and there's a chapter on "Some Extra Terrestrial Visitations" which con tains some amazing stories to say the least Thus W Gordon Allen devotes a book in support of Unidentified Flying Objects Even so the author points out that a poll (Gallup) showed that 37 per cent of the people do not believe in "saucers" under any conditions Nevertheless Allen goes right on to say: "Without doubt there are certain phenomena that accompany a UFO's appearance in a certain area that seem of great importance Understanding of the possible sequence and ability to 'read between the lines' enable an alert UFO hobbyist to have a much better chance to see for himself" Whether his book will swing over many converts to the UFO cause remains to be seen of course But it is likely to stimulate interest in some mighty far-away places and their vehicles Local Contractors up Damage Claim Against City Sandell and Lastrapes contractors today added $3492 to the $15322 damages demanded in a suit in Caddo District Court against the city of Shreveport growing out of a contract for work at the Out fall Pumping Station south of Shreveport The contractors

still one month behind in reimbursements for school lunches after having received the claims for October amounting to $140739 The October reimbursement was received several days ago after James S Reily state finance officer instructed the state treasure to release more than $2000- 000 to prevent school boards from raising the prices of lunches Supt Roscoe H White has said the release of the disputed funds would not have an effect upon the decision of the board to raise the prices of lunches from 10 and 15 cents to 15 and 20 cents beginning a week ago Claims amounting to $113989 for November and $104536 for December have not been reimbursed The December claim however was sent in only a few days ago The reimbursements are generally one month behind The smaller December claim is due to fewer meals served because of the Christmas holidays School authorities are awaiting a ruling by the state attorney general as to whether a $4500000 statewide balance at the end of the fiscal year can be used for the school lunch program School officials call the fund an operating surplus needed to start the program off at the opening of schools Caddo had $296000 surplus on June 30 last year which is involved in the state total of some rp4 500000 A small balance would be left after the September and October claims already received are taken out Budget Includes Planning Fund For
