Films May Show Disc in Flight

BOISE, Ida., July 9 (U.P.) -- Dave Johnson, aviation editor of the Idaho Statesman, reported today he saw and took motion pictures of a black object he hopes is a "disc" as he was flying between Boise and Anderson Ranch dam.

Johnson, flying for the third day in search of the elusive flying saucerss, said he radioed the weather bureau and asked if the object might be a weather observation balloon. The bureau radioed back that it had no balloon in the air at that time.

"I was looking into the sun when I saw the object," Johnson said over his plane's radio.

"It flashed silver against the sun and maneuvered rapidly through the sky. I was able to get only about 10 feet of film before it was gone. I was so far away I don't know whether I got anything or not before it was gone."

Johnson had color film in his camera.
