The whole article:
“An unidentified flying object (UFO) was spotted Wednesday night [22 February 1967] by a local couple south of Lake St. Lawrence near the Cole’s Creek Marina.

Mr. and [Mrs.] Earl Eldridge,14 Bayley Road, saw the object just as they approached the Marina from the east while driving to Ogdensburg. Eldridge [was] driving.

Mrs. Eldridge said the object was rather big.

‘It scared the daylights out of me. [It] had two flood lights and a small one in the center, like the lights on a car.’ Mrs. Eldridge stated. It was silver colored, she said.

She said it came so close she could see the understructure which resembled that of a plane. Mrs. Eldridge only saw the lower part of the body. When she turned to see [it] after it passed, it vanished, she related.

Mrs. Eldridge, [whose] husband is retired from Alcoa, Massena works, said the object did not make a sound.

State police at the Massena substation spotted a high, UFO flying east to west on the night of Feb. 17.

Troopers G. A. Matteo and Keith Bain, followed it from Helena to Norwood, where it was spotted by other Troopers.”

U.F.O. Investigator, March-April 1967, Vol. III, No. 12
(National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, Washington, D.C.)

The whole article (Page 6):
“Official confirmation by the FAA of a UFO radar tracking has been received from Federal Aviation Agency's (FAA) Experimental Center at Atlantic City, New Jersey. The tracking, confirmed visually, occurred on the evening of February 24.

‘I can confirm the reported radar tracking of a UFO at this 
Center. . .to the extent that our air traffic facility did have an unidentified target on its radar at the time and in the vicinity a motorist reported a UFO,’ said Public Affairs Officer, E. L. Shoop, Jr., of the Center’s National Aviation Facilities, in a letter to NICAP.

The motorist is Robert King, a mechanic for Southern Jersey Airways, who spotted the glowing orange UFO around 10 p.m. while driving along the Garden State Parkway, about 15 miles south of Atlantic City. Traveling at an estimated speed of 100 m.p.h. and altitude of about 1500 feet, the object moved quickly toward the ground and disappeared. It later reappeared and headed south toward Cape May.

King then called the FAA and, according to Mr. Shoop, ‘he was informed by the controllers on duty that they did have an unidentified target at the time and place in question. . .’, but ‘they could not confirm any erratic maneuvering.’

The witness also said, in a newspaper report, that a check with Cape May and Atlantic County airports revealed no planes had either landed or taken off during the time of the sighting.”
