Private Group Asks Sharp to Clarify Oregon Sighting

WASHINGTON, March 19 (UPI) -- A research group appealed today to Secretary of the Air Force Dudley C. Sharp to clear up the mystery of a round, flame spouting object, that supposedly assumed mushroom shape and escaped jet pursuers over Oregon last Sept. 24.

The privately financed National Investigation Committee on Aerial Phenomenon charged that an official report by the Deferal Aviation Agency "proves that the Air Force concealed the facts on this cas."

"The Air Force was fully aware that its own and the F.A.A evidence proved this was some unknown machine under intelligent control," the committee added.

There was no immediate comment from Mr. Sharp. But an Air Force spokesman said there was "insufficient information" on which to draw any conclusion about the Oregon sighting other than that it "was probably a balloon."
