TIL 9 TM. 7 OTHER DAYS, 9:30 AM. TIL 5:30 P.M. '1 a Advocate of Flying-Saucers Lectures Club By ROBERT L. STEVENS - Staff WrKerr The Statesmaa W. Gordon Allen, Salem radio station owner and advocate of fly ing saucers, whined into a half hour declaration on moon people, electric propulsion and unidentified flying objects at a Salem Lions Club luncheon Thursday at Hotel Marion. Allen disagreed with V. S. Air Force's studies on. flying saucers, he said the moon is inhabited by little quasi-human people with high intelligently minds, and flying saucers are constantly "spoofing America's Dewline radar defense. Allen, who publishes a quarterly space craft digest, produced pic tures of supposed saucers, and quoted psychologists and astro-phy sicists who support his belief in spacecraft. The saucer pictures were taken in various parts of the world, in cluding Willamette Valley, accord ing to Allen. The Salem man claimed he has seen workable models of flying saucers ascend and buzz around uninhibited. He said these models, which the inventors refuse to' pa tent, were based on a vortex theory of efeetfieal'-ftight. This involves two doughnut-shaped protons spin ning in opposite directions, like a generator. The spin, phis some ether, he said, degravitizes the whole business and up goes the saucer. He said the Air Force is not tell ing the truth when it says there have been no pictures taken of authenticated flying saucers. He also says the Air Force is spending billions of dollars developing an outmoded means of space trav elrockets. Allen zoomed along with illustra tions of various sighting instances. circled his audience with tales of 4.000-foot diameter saucers, and fi nally landed on the supposition that the nation who finally per: fects electrical flight will be able to control the earth,, Make Break From Prison JERUSALEM.

Israel (AP) Robert Murphy, President Eisenhower's special envoy, met for more than an hour Thursday with Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. Among the subjects believed to have been raised was that of Israel's willingness for talks with Arab leaders on a permanent peace.

The newspaper Haboker report ed earlier this week that Ben-Gurion personally asked Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to use his good offices in bringing aboift conference with President Nas ser of the United Arab Republic.

Queried la Parllameat Ben-Gurion was asked in Parlia ment if the government was prepared to propose that the great powers invite Israel and Egypt to peace talks.
