'Saucer' Probers Killed in Crash

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2 (U.P.) -- Two fliers who were killed Friday in a crash in Washington State were intelligence officers returning here after talking with Kenneth Arnold, Boise pilot who first reported seeing the flying disks, Brig. Gen. Ned Schramm, 4th Air Force chief of staff, said Saturday.

Schramm said the officers had flown to Washington to see Arnold after they received a communication that Arnold "might have something interesting to tell them."

Schramm said it was his understanding that the men were not bringing anything back with them in their B-25 bomber which crashed near Kelso, Wash.

An anonymous caller notified the United Press at Tacoma, Wash., that closely guarded fragments of a flying disk had been loaeded aboard the plane before it took off from McChord Field, Washington, for Hamilton field, California.
