“Army intelligence has begun the job of digging out the facts on the outburst of ‘flying saucers’ reported flitting over widespread parts of the nation, but to date remains completely mystified.
The News learned that the saucers are definitely not connected with any U.S. experimental military project.
A War Department source revealed that the G-2 section (Intelligence) went to work a year ago on reports of other strange objects flying around the skies and came to the conclusion—never fully verified—that they were meteorites of some description.
But the reputable witnesses who have reported seeing the saucers in the last few days have given rise to growing concern at the Pentagon.
Intelligence agents in the field have been instructed to examine eyewitnesses and make every effort to determine the cause of the strange events.”
