MYSTERIOUS OBJECTS SIGHTED OVER OREGON

Pendleton, Ore., june 25 -- (AP) -- Nine bright, saucer-like objects flying at "incredible" speed at 10.000 feet altitude were reported here Wednesday by Kenneth Arnold, Boise, Idaho, pilot, who said he could not hazard a guess as to what they were.

Arnold, a United States forest service employe engaged in searching for a missing plane said he sighted the mysterious objects Tuesday at 3 p.m. They were flying between Mount Rainier and Mount Adams, in Washington state, he said, and appeared to weave in and out of formation. Arnold said he clocked them and estimated their speed at 1,200 miles an hour.

Inquiries at Yakima Tuesday brought only blank stares, he said, but he added he talked with an unidentified man from Ukiah, south of there who said he had seen similar objects over the mountains near Ukiah.

"It seemed impossible," Arnold said, "but there it is."

In Washington, the war department said it had no information on the Oregon sky mystery.
