Aug. 13, 1960. Red Bluff, CA: California Highway Patrol Officers Charles A. Carson and Stanley Scott were on patrol when they sighted what they thought was an airliner about to crash. When the UFO had descended to about 100 or 200 feet altitude it suddenly reversed direction and climbed to 500 ft. Description: round or oblong surrounded by a glow (color not mentioned) and having definite red lights at each end. They continued to watch the UFO as it performed ‘unbelievable’ aerial feats. The local RADAR operator confirmed the UFO at this time but denied it the next day. Other Tehema County Sheriffs’ officers also saw this UFO and  another similar one that same night. (NICAP, 1964)”

The directory contains an excerpt from Dr. James E. McDonald’s lecture, “Greatest Scientific Problem of Our Time?” The lecture was held to the American Society of Newspaper Editors (Washington, D.C., 22 April 1967).
