'Flying Saucer' Probers Killed

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2 (UP) -- Two fliers who were killed yesterday in a crash in Washington State were intelligence officers returning here after talking with Kenneth Arnold, Boise pilot who first reported seeing "flying saucers."

Brig. Gen, Ned Schramm, Fourth Air Force chied of staff, said the officers had flown to Washington to see Mr. Arnold after they received a communication that Arnold "might have something interesting to tell them."

Gen. Schramm said it was his understanding that the men were not bringing anything back with them in their B-25 bomber which crashed near Kelso, Wash.

An anonymous caller notified the United Press at Tacoma, Wash., that closely-guarded fragments of a flying saucer had been loaeded aboard the plane before it took off from McChord Field, Wash.

The fliers who were killed were Capt. William L. Davidson, San Francisco, and Lt. Frank M. Brown, Vallejo, Cal.
