Here They Are Again, Those Flying Saucers; Lt. Gov. Sees Them

By United PRess

Persons in seven states, including the lieutenant governor of Idaho, today reported that they had seen the mysterious "flying saucers."

The projectiles, variously described as "too fast for an airplane and not fast enough for a falling star," "not moving at all" and "traveling at great speed," were reported seen again last night streaking over Denver.

It was the first report of the "saucers" in almost a week. Persons in Oergon, California, New Mexico and Idaho reported seeing various versions of the unexplained projectiles last week.

Lt. Gov. Donald S. Whitehead, of Idaho, said today that he saw a strange comet-like object hanging in the western sky on June 24. That was the day Kenneth Arnold, Boise, Ida., first reported seeing the projectiles over southwestern Washington.

Their stories varied. Arnold had estimated the projectiles' speed at 1200 miles an hour. Whitehead said the objects he and three other witnesses saw "didn't move, but just seemed to go below the horizon with the rotation of the earth."
