GIANT "VACUUM CLEANERS" IN THE SKY

Scores report new


saucers
dia
sv
A ustralkot Associated Presi

CH/CAGO, Thursday. "Giant


vacuum cleaners" were reported
roaring over Kansas and Illinois early
today.

The unidentified flying objects, said to


be about 35 feet across, flashing white, red
and amber lights, were reported by scores
of people, including policemen.
A policeman in Goodland, Kansas, reported
seeing such an object. brilliantly white on the front,
roaring like a huge vacuum cleaner.
The editor of the Goodland "Daily
News," Mr Tom Dreiling, said in his lour
'.ears with the Air Force he never heard propellers, jets or anything else sound like that.
Other sightings were in Rawlins, Cheyenne,
Wallace, Thomas and Sherman Counties in Kansas,
and in Henry and Knox Counties in Illinois.

HOUR-LONG STUDY

A Knox County deputy sheriff, Frank Courson, said the object he watched was "very distinguishable."
Mr Courson said he watched the object, which
he said was joined by a second, for more than
an hour.
During that time he took notes and made a
sketch of the object.
"1t was bluish white and pulsating red," he
added.
It had a rim that looked like it was
about five feet thick at the bottom of what
looked like an upside-down bowl."
"Taking into consideration (be altitude and
distance, it seemed to be about 35 feet in diameter.

Mr Courson said he and some others watched


the objects through binoculars for more than half
an hour as they danced about over two radio
transmitting towers.
Mr Courson said at one point he saw a plane
fly by.

PLANE CHECK

The time he said the plane passed was confirmed by radar operators in Chicago who scan
the area with remote-controlled equipment.
The radar men said ti-ey saw nothing
else on their screen, but Mr Courson said the
objects were too low to be spotted by radar,
He said the object emitted a hissing sound
and at one point he saw it release "a white beam
of light that hit the ground with a kind of flasfi."
Numerous residents of the area called radio
stations and reported they had seen similar objects.

AUSTRALIAN skies
at the moment seem
positively aflash with
flying saucers, or Unidentified Flying Objects, known in the
singular as Ufo.

IN1

We haven't seen one ourselves (morels the pity), but


a Sydney author, Mr Richard Tambling, says it's just
for want of looking.
His book, -Flying Saucers Where Do They
Come From?" published a
month ago by Horwitz,
claims: -I can give you a
foolproof formula that will
enable you to see a Ufo,
possibly one of the saucer
variety."
His plan is that readers
should look at the night
sky for one month, jot
down on paper anything
and
spotted,
unusual
answer questions on a
sighting report form, which
should be sent to Mr TarnMing, the nearest R.A.A.F.
base, police station or local
Ufo society.
"I have often been asked
if I believe in flying saucrs," writes Mr Tambling.
My answer is no, I dO
. To ask me if I
not .
believe in flying saucers
would be like asking me if
I believed in motor cars. 1
don't believe cars existI
know.it."
How? Mr Tambling says
he was serving as a R.A.F.
photographer in Hong
Kong, 1954, when, in daylight, he saw a Lift, "like
two floors of a Chinese
pagoda flying through the
air." It sounds ludicrous,
but Mr Tambling swear!, to
it and to seven more
sightings.
Fear of ridicule won't
shake him, and he sticks to
the theory that Ufos from
outer space fly over our
earth, and descend on it.
In Australia, those interested in Ufo phenomena.

Canberra, Newcastle and
Svdney,
Dr Miran Lindtner, 46,
a CS.I.R.O. research officer, who holds a doctorate.
in physiology, is president
of the Unidentified Flying
Objects Investigation Centre, Sydney, a 290-strong
group.

Reports by
group
At his Strathfield home,
Dr Lindtner told DATA:
"Our attitude is scientific.
we claim only things we
can prove with some degree, and indulge in no
philosophical speculations."
His group collates ' t6ports of sightings, interviews people who claim to
have seen U.F.O.s, and exchanges information with
overseas organisations.
One correspondent is
Professor Tames McDonald
of the University of Arizona, U.S.A.
. who met
Lindtner on a visit to Australia earlier this year.
From the profe-ssor} a physicist, Lindtner has received
photographs of strange objects seen in U.S. skies
a series showing a hollow
ring which seems to be
creating a camouflaging
cloud.
DATA saw these but
could not persuade Dr
Lindtner to let us reproduce them. They were the
professor's property, he
said.

Lindtner says there have


been 120 U.F.O. sightings
in Australia this year and
a total of 450 sightings
since 1869. U,F.O.s, he believes, have an extraterrestrial source.
DATA showed Dr Lindtner an article in "Science"
magazine, written by William
Markowitz,
Professor of Physics at Marquette University, U.S.A.
Titled "The Physics and
Metaphysics of U.F.0,1s"
it was sub-titled "Reported
U.F.O.s cannot be under
extraterrestrial control if
the laws of physics are
valid,"
Markowitz pointed out,
in detail, that at the fastest
practicable speed (about
186,000 miles per second,
the speed of light) it would
take a spaceship from a
neighbouring
galaxy
2,000,000 years to reach
our galaxy. At this speed

and occupants is unlikely."
It was immensely scientific, but Dr Lindtner, undaunted, replied: "Markowitz does not conceive of
an 'advanced civilisation
with things we have not
dreamed of, s.iich as antigravitational force."
Knowing nothing about
physics (like Markowitz),
or of ILT,F.O.s (like. Lindtner), DATA gave up, and
went home. looking carefully at the sk.y. When we
see that saucer, we'll tell
