this week. I’d like to add a few
more thoughts and a few more'
facts on this vital, but complete-1
ly hushed-up subject. We’ll do
it in the form of didyouknows.'
For instance: Did you know
that while the U. S. Air Force
informs its commands to take
the subject of flying saucers
seriously in connection with the
defense of our coun-tryy, it re
verses itself and tells the public
that the saucers don’t exist. Did
you know that while the Air |
Force was telling the public
they were seeing mere halluci
nations, they were sending up
their fastest jets to chase those
so-called hallucinations? Did
you know that every year the]
Air Force tells the public they
are closing their latest UFO pro-t
