The Houston Chronicle presents a Chicago Daily News article.

The whole article:
“A French government agency has begun to study the phenomenon of unidentified flying objects.

J. Allen Hynek, professor of astronomy at Northwestern University and director of the Center for UFO Studies, said the study is the first of its kind to be funded by any government.

The French National Center for Space Studies (CNES) has created a research group which has asked Hynek’s organization for cooperation.

Hynek told reporters that CNES is equivalent to our National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

‘The implications of this step taken by the French government are farreaching,’ Hynek said. ‘It points up to the growing interest on an official level and recognition of the serious nature of the UFO phenomenon,’ he added.

Hynek has been studying UFO reports since 1948.

‘There will now be an official government group – unfortunately in another country – that is going to take this thing seriously,’ he said.

‘All of our data is available to them. We have computer data on 60,000 cases. The great difference between our work and what the French will be doing is they will be properly funded.

Hynek hedged when asked if he personally believes the Earth has been visited by beings from other worlds.

‘It is possible,’ he said.”
