'FLYING DISKS' AGAIN LINKED TO RED TESTS

WASHINGTON, Dec. 22. (AP) -- Ellsworth (R.) Or., revived reports today that last summer's "flying saucer" epidemic may have stemmed from Russian rocket experiments.

Ellsworth said he has received reliable information concerning the development of high-velocity missiles by Soviet scientists.

He said the Russians are reported to have a rocket of amazing speed and "almost limitless range" propelled by a series of explosions occurring several seconds apart.

"Each successive explosion shoots the missile forward at increased speed," Ellsworth said. "Apparently the charges are parked separately and are held apart by metal disks. As each charge is fired, the metal disk is discharged as an empty cartridge shell is ejected from an automatic rifle. The disks are made of this metal and possibly disintegrate in the air not long after they are discharged."
