The whole article:
“An army intelligence agent opened an investigation today into reports by sheriff’s deputies and others that they saw a flying ‘saucer’ near the army’s huge Fort Ord.

Deputies Ted Cross and Jim Matney, a former aerial gunner, were questioned for more than a half-hour by the agent regarding the object they saw streaking across the countryside near here Sunday (9 April 1950).

The agent told the deputies that all army intelligence operatives had been ordered to carry cameras in their cars in an effort to photograph the elusive discs.”
