'Flying Disk' Reports Lost in Plane Crash

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 3. (U.P.) An Air Forces general tonight indirectly admitted that "classified material" regarding the mysterious "flying disks" was aboard a B-25 bomber which crashed in Washington Friday, but declined to comment on reports that the plane carried pieces of a crashed "saucer."

Brig. Gen. Ned Schramm, 4th Air Force chief of staff, admitted the two Army pilots who died in the crash investigated the saucer episode.

At the time of the crash, Schramm said, Capt. William L. Davidson of San Francisco and 1st Lt. Frank M. Brown of Vallejo, were en route back to Hamilton Field following an interview with Kenneth Arnold of Boise, Ida., and United Air Lines Capt. E. J. Smith.

(At Boise a newspaper quoted Smith as saying that he gave the two officers six pieces of metal or lava which may have been parts of a crashed disk. Smith, according to the newspapers, said the pieces were extremely heavy and showed evidence of having been subject to extreme heat.)
