They Were 'Flying Hot Cakes' When Tokyo Saw Them in Raid

TOKYO, July 12. (AP) -- A Tokyo businessman came up with a story today on "flying hot cakes" he had seen over Tokyo after wartime air raids.

"Roundish objects - like hot cakes - about 20 square yards in size, flew at taxicab speed after B-29's raided Tokyo on the nights of May 23 and May 25, 1945," Tomoko Okado told Tokyo newspapers.

"They were blue - maybe gray - and flew over my shelter. They were followed several times by six-feet wide and 30-feet long colored air waves."

The objects flew noiselessly and did not crash, Okado said. Asked if what he saw were "flying disks," he said they "might coincide, they might not."

One thing is very certain, he added - "in those days, we saw things."
