Discs Definitely Not Any Army Experiment

PORTLAND, July 8. -- (AP) -- The Oregonian said today that Maj. Gen. Nathan F. Twining, chief of the AAF material command, told it flatly that the "flying saucers" are not the results of experiments by the armed services.

"Neither the AAF nor any other component of the armed forces has any plane, guided missile or other aerial device under development which could possibly be mistaken for a saucer or a formation of flying discs," the newspaper quoted Twinings as telling it by telephone from Kirtland Army airbase, Alubuqueruqe, N. M.

It continued its quotation: "Some of these witnesses evidently saw something but we don't know what. We are investigating."

Meanwhile, air National Guard squadrons flying from Portland, Boise and Spokane bases parolled Pacific northwest skies late yesterday, landing after sundown, without observing any of the objects.
