    • UFO OBSERVED AT C W E RANGE I N MO.By Ted Phillips, Jr.A t 7 am Feb. 14, 1968, an object of un-known origin was observed on t h e ground i na very rugged area of south-central Missouri.The following report i s taken from a tapedinterview with the writer on Feb. 17, and acopy has been sent t o D r . J. Allen m e k , A i rForce Scientific Consultant on UFOs.It was 7 em and the sky w a s quite clearand bright; no stars were visible. Theobserver w a s walking towards a large barnlocated some 100 f e e t east of his house,when he noticed one of h i s cows lookingout i n t o a f i e l d behind t h e barn.

He movedt o t h e ~ o r t h e a s tcorner of the b m andP upt o t h i s point, he thought the object was aparachute.On moving a few f e e t further, he sawseveral s m a l l "objects" moving under the UFOwhich was 285 f e e t from him. The observersaid the "cbjects" r e r e movlr? q d t e repidly;they seemed t o have arms, also moving a t ahigh r a t e of speed. It was t h e observersopinion these s m a l l objects were m t human.They seemed t o be about the same color as t h eUFO, with novisible neck, head, o r legs;however, he was some distance may and t h eobjects seemed t o be about two and a halff e e t tall.

This f a c t wasrantstheconclusion t h a t there have been many moreW O observations i n t h e USSR. We have alreadjcollected some dozens of well-documentedreports and accowits.I n M R ~1967 a sponsoring group of sci-ent,ists, t h e military, writers and publicfigures met t o form an unofficial bodywhose purpose it would be t o conduct apreliminary s c i e n t i f i c investigation of .UFOs. **-H* The organization s e t upOctober 1967, i s called t h e UFO sectionof t h e All-Union Cosmonautics Committee,with headquarters a t t h e Central House ofAviation and Cosrnonauti.cs i n tbscow.

The recorded--.-observations 1.~i.11serve t o check hypotheses.These hypothese should not, i n my opinion,,attempt, -to explain the nature of UFOs i nterms of familiar phenomena. Judging byother surprises, nature has some i n s t o r en)rua here too, and we must be ready f o r per-haps a r a d i c a l "reassessment of values."The hypothesis t h a t UFO8 originate i nother worlds, t h a t they a r e flying c r a f t fromplanets other than Earth, merits t h e mostserious examination.Observations show t h a t UFOs behave "sensi-bly." I n a group formation f l i g h t they main-t a i n a pattern. They a r e most often spottedover a i r f i e l d s , atomic s t a t i o n s and othervery new engineering i n s t a l l a t i o n s . On en-ccuntering a i r c r a f t they always maneuver soas t o avoid d i r e c t contact. A considerablel i s t of these seemingly i n t e l l i g e n t actionsgive t h e impression t h a t UFO8 a r e investi-gaking, perhaps even reconnoitering.Curioasly enough, t h e number of UFOsobservations increases as Mars approachest h e earth. Is t h a t pure coincidence?Some people think t h a t UFOs have appearedI n t h e Earzhs atmosphere only during thepast two decades. This is not t h e case. TheUFO phenomenon has been observed throughoutt h e history of mankind, there a r e medievaland ancient reports s t r i k i n g l y similar t o ours.Among the e a r l i e r UFO reports, a s an ex-ample, may be t h e well-documented observationsof a l a r g e saucer i n 1882 a d a "processionof bolides" i n 1913. These reports s t i l l a-w a i t investigation.The mosz remarkable UFO phenomenon i s t h efamous "Tungusky meteorite." In recent yearsSoviet s c i e n t i s t s have established t h a t theTu~?guskyexplosion had every parameter of anair nuclear b l a s t . The USSR Academy of Sci-ences Reports (volume 172, Nos. 4 and 5, 1967)have studies by Alexei Zolotov t o prove t h a tthe Tungusky body could not be a meteoriteo r a comet.I n the Sumner of 1967 t h e J o i n t I n s t i t u t eof Nuclear Research at Dubna published astudy by Vladimir Mekhedov, who concludes t h a tt h e Tungusky b l a s t l e f t considerable residualradioactivity , Finally, as recently as 1966,a f t e r analyzing t h e sum t o t a l of observationson t h e Tungusky bodys f l i g h t , t h i s w r i t e rshowed t h a t before the b l a s t t h e Tunguskybody described i n t h e atmosphere a tremendousarc of about 375 miles i n extent ( i n azimuth),t h a t is, carried out a manuever.A l l these new r e s u l t s warrant the conclu-sion t h a t t h e Tungusky body seems t o have beenan a r t i f i c i a l flying c r a f t from another planet.Sould t h i s be f i n a l l y confirmed by investi-gations now i n progress, t h e significance oft h e Tungusky d i a s t e r would be inestimable.(continued on page f i v e )
