“Dash of Horse Sense Brakes

Optimism Over Space Travel”, 5 September 1952
(The Spokesman-Review, Spokane, Washington)

The Spokesman-Review reports on the International Congress of Astronautics that was held in Stuttgart, Germany in September 1952:


Quote from the article:
“They do not appear interested in such popular questions as the origin of flying saucers. The delegates gave the impression that no one thought the saucers originated in another planet or in the Soviet Union.

Arthur C. Clarke, chairman of the British Interplanetary Society, pointed out that objects like saucers have been commonplace to Japanese fishermen for years. Saucers themselves thus are not new, he said, but are merely appearing in areas where they have not been observed in the past.”

“Submarines Reported Off South Coasts –
Do They See Diving Saucers Now?”,
28 January 1951 (The Pittsburgh Press, Pennsylvania)

The Pittsburgh Press reports that the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force were investigating sightings of unknown submarines:


Quote from the article:
“... are people now seeing diving saucers?

The Navy is inclined to be skeptical about strange subs reported popping up off the Florida Gulf and Atlantic Coasts, and off California. The information thus far is too vague to be evaluated say topdeck Navy officers.

But the Navy is investigating. So is the Air Force. And FBI officials here said they are keeping in touch with the situation on general principles.

Four fishermen and crews of two passenger airplanes reported seeing a sub off Venice, Fla., on the Gulf Coast. One plane crew reported making a pass at it and seeing it dive.”
