Two Pendleton Residents Tell Of Mystery Discs

PENDLETON, Ore., June 30 (UP) -- Mysterious objects, flying high and fast, were reported today by two Pendleton area residents.

Mrs Morton Elder, McKay Creek farm wife, reported seeing seven "perfectly round, umbrella-like" objects flying in a northwesterly direction about 11 p.m. Sunday.

She said the "planes" made a humming noise that resembled the sound of a musical top.

She said they were flying in a perfect wedge-shaped formation at a "very fast" speed. She described them as "white as snow" and "round like a mushroom or an umbrella."

She said there was no sign of a tail on the objects. They were flying "very high."

At the same time, Bill Schuening, foreman of the Lester King ranch, about 15 miles north of Pendleton, reported he saw objects similar to those reported near Mt. Rainier Wednesday by Kenneth Arnold, Boise, Ida., flying businessman.

Shuening said he saw "planes" the same day Mr. Arnold reported seeing the so-called "flying discs" whizzing along the Cascade mountains at an estimated 1200 miles an hour.

The objects were so high, Schuening related, that he was unable to determine their shape but he said they were "weaving in and out of formation." He said they were traveling at an "unusual rate of speed."

Arnold reported the objects he saw were also traveling "like the tail of a Chinese kite."
