24 February 1951
(The Lewiston Daily Sun, Lewiston-Auburn, Maine)
The Lewiston Daily Sun reports on an argument between the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy regarding the nature of UFOs:
Quote from the article:
“Dr. (Anthony O.) Mirarchi (air chemist, U.S. Air Force) said that after studying extensive files of the Office of Strategic Information, covering hundreds of eyewitness reports of flying saucers or ‘fireballs,’ he concluded the observations were consistent with ‘a missile programmed in advance.’ ”
A number of the fireball observations came from the area around Los Alamos National Laboratory, according to Dr. Mirarchi.
