Seen Any Flying Saucers Lately? Tell Air Forces By CHARLES CORD BY United Press Staff Correspondent Washington, IIB The air force's flying saucer sleuths are sttll unable to explain about 10 percent ol the phenomena reported to them But so far this year they have had only 87 sightings reported tr. them. At that rate, the students of imj. dentlfied flying objects (TJFO's) faced the prospect of getting through 1954 with fewer than half as many flying object reports as last year. In 1352, 1,700 sightings were re ported and investigated. Last year the figure was 429, The present annual rate is about 208, The aerial phenomena that give rise to XTPO reports are still pres ent, of course, and the idea that some ol them drift in from outer space still gets some attention But the air force believes and says the ilgures support it that more scientific investigating pro cedures and better public education are shrinking the saucer prob The air force says: "No evidence has been received which would tend to indicate that the United States is being observ ed by machines from outer space or a foreign government. No ob iect or particle of an unknown substance has been received and no photographs of detail have been produced." If you see any TJFO's, the air force says, it "would welcome the Information," The people to contact are at the Air Technical Intelligence center, Wright-Patterson air force base, Dayton, O,, where Capt. Charles A. Hardin collects saucer data and directs It to air force and other agencies for scientific study Over the years, the Intelligence people have found 80 percent of the sightings explainable as known objects: balloons, aircraft, tronomlcal bodies, atmospheric reflections and birds. Of this year's 87 sightings, 70 percent have been explained, 10 percent unexplained and 20 percent of the reports contained such flimsy information that tbey had to be ignored. Two interesting facts turned up by the TJFO students are these: 1. There is a "direct corre lation" between the number of sightings reported and the publicity given to saucers by the nation's press, 2, UFO reports increase at those times of year when meteors are most common. Saucer "sightings" have been made by both visual and radar means. The air force said that "temperature Inversion reflections a natural phenomena under certain atmospheric conditions can make images on radar scopes as sharp as those from airplanes and at speeds appearing to range from zero to fantastic rates. Ionized cloudes and flights of birds also have been picked up on radar. Phenomena Galore Jet aircraft, flying at great speeds with sunlight reflecting on their polished surfaces, are often mistaken for unknown objects. Weather balloons and huge 90-foot upper air research balloons carry small lights when launched after dark and have highly re-felectlve surfaces. Methods and planets often bring a flurry of saucer reports. Venus in particular Is low on the horizon and appears to change color and move erratically at certain times of year. Saucers which behave in "weird and peculiar manner" believed to be reflections rather than actual objects. The air force says reflections may be projected to clouds and haze from both ground and air. Brilliant flashing lights, red and Mte, have been traced to a new lighting system on top of a tai section of commercial and mill tary aircraft. Heizer ALICE M.
