UFO News Article:
“Official Denials Seen Strange on Reports Of ‘Flying Saucers’ - None Outside Air Force Allowed to Check and Analyze Observations”

6 April 1950
(The Evening Star, Washington, D.C.)


Quote from the article:
“While the Defense Department officially says there are no ‘flying saucers,’ private aeronautical engineers say ‘yes,’ and so does Comdr. Robert McLaughlin, on active duty in the Navy, who  saw one in New Mexico (at White Sands Proving Ground, renamed White Sands Missile Range in 1958) some months ago, where it was tracked by observers with instruments. He wrote a technical description of it in the March issue of the magazine ‘True.’

The strange thing about the official denial from the Defense Department is that it says the reports of unidentified flying objects are the result either of ‘hoaxes’ or ‘hysteria’ or ‘a misinterpretation of various conventional objects.’

But nobody on the outside has been allowed to check up on those reports and analyze them from a technical point of view. It would seem that, if they are of no consequence any more, the Air Force ought to permit their publication in order that competent technicians can form their own conclusions.

Clearly something is lacking to explain what the competent Air Force flyers wrote in reporting their observations of the flying saucers—which reports are reposing in official files and have never been made public.”
