AMAZED AT FUSS MADE OVER FINDING OF FLYING DISC

W. W. Brazel, Rancher, Is Credited With the Find.

IS SORRY HE SPOKE

"If I Find Anything Else Short of a Bomb, I Will Keep Quiet," He Said.

ROSWELL, N. M., July 9 -- (AP) -- W. W. Brazel, the rancher credited for a time with finding the nation's first flying disc, is sorry he said anything about it.

The 48-year-old New Nexican said he was amazed at the fuss made over his discovery.

"If I find anything else short of a bomb it's going to be hard to get me to talk," he told the Asscoiated PRess early this morning.

Brazel's discovery was reported late yesterday by Lt Salter [sic, Walter] Haut, Roswell Army Air Field Public Relations officer, as being one of the flying saucers that have puzzled and worried residents of 43 states the past several weeks.

Later, however, Brig. Gen. Roger Ramey, Commanding General of the Eighth Air Force of which the Roswell Field is a component, said Brazel's find was merely a weather radar target.

But Brazel wasn't making any claims. He said he didn't know what it was.
