Soviet Study of U.F.O.'s Is Reported Under Way

MOSCOW, Nov 11 (AP) -- The Soviet Government has set up a special commission to investigate reports in this country of unidentified flying objects, informed sources reported today.

The commission was described as under the direction of Gen. Anatoli Stolyerov of the Soviet Air Force, with an office in Moscow.

Soviet authorities had dismissed reports of U.F.O.'s as nonsense when they first started getting attention in the 1950's. The press here did not mention rumors of sightings in the Caucasus, Siberia and elsewhere.

A new attitude was indicated last April when a scientist, F. Zigel, reported that Soviet radar screens had been detecting unidentified objects for 20 years.
