A "FLYING SAUCER" FOUND

On Ranch in New Mexico

Roswell, New Mexico,
July 8.

The United States Army Air Force announced here to-night that a "flying saucer" had been found on a ranch near here and was now in the Army's possession.

Lieutenant Warren Haught [sic, Walter Haut], public relations officer at Roswell, announced that the disc had been found "some time last week," and had been handed over to the airfield through the co-operation of the sheriff's office. It was inspected at Roswell Army airfield and subsequently sent "to higher authorities." No other details are given.

"LIKE A BOX-KITE"

Washington, July 8.

Brigadier General Roger Ramey, commander of the Eighth Air Force, said to-night that a battered object, previously described as a flying disc found near Roswell, New Mexico, is being sent by air to the United states Army Air Force's research centre in Ohio [Wright-Patterson army air field]. He described it as of "flimsy construction, almost like a box-kite." -- Associated Press.
