Staunch Few Hold to Planetary'Saucer' Theories
a& k: 1j

(Continued from Page 1)


Daily Space Editor
Scientists and Air Force officials
have had their hands full this
Week finding satisfactory explana-
tions for the nation's latest fad-
"flying saucers."
But their theories, which include
atmospheric disturbances, optical
illusions and a wide variety of bal-
loons, have probably left the die-
hard outer space enthusiasts un-
that the flying "saucers" exist,
that they are guided by intelligent
beings and that they come either
from other planets in our Solar
System or from the vast reaches
of outer space.
They can even suggest meth-
ods by which our visitors might
have covered the trillions of
miles from other solar systems
to our own. These include prac-
tically everything from old-fash-
ioned theories of atomic energy
to faster-than-light travel over
magnetic lines of force.
Those who believe in the "sauc-
ers" do so, they say, because of
the numerous sightings which
have been ,reported since 1947
which they feel have not been sat-
isfactorily explained.

"Whatzits" have included green
fireballs, round orange blobs, in-
tricate formations of tiny white
lights and even long cigar-like af-
fairs with windows and "eerie"
internal lighting.
This does not include flying
washtubs, bananas and other
Observers have clocked them at
speeds ranging from 130 miles per
hour to 18,000 m.p.h. and have
estimated diameters ranging from
25 feet to 1000 feet.

SOME spectators have toyed
with the idea that these devices
are products of secret research
here or in Russia, but these theor-
ies appear to have been largely
discarded in favor of the more
spectacular idea of people from
other worlds.
They give weight to their ar-
gument by pointing to the unbe-
lievable speeds and maneuvers
they say the "saucers" accom.
Human beings could not sur-
vive such a juggling around, it is
pointed out.
So far, however, no one has been
willing to hazard a guess as to
the physical appearance of "sau-
cer" crews. Aside from the specu-
lation that they were 36 to 42
inches in height which appeared
in a recent book, the initiated ap-
pear to be waiting until one of
these gadgets lands before mak-
ing any more predictions.
Hass Predicts
Bad National
Crisis Soon

"Any other view is a cynical
one," he added.
THE "PROGRAM" calls for
collective ownership of land and
all instruments of production,
with the management of industry
completely in the hands of the
Hass and his co-workers are
aware that should their predict-
ed crisis arise, the workers might
not follow the SLP, but turn,
perhaps to some idealogy such
as fascism. That is the reason
for all the party's work, Hass

explained. "If there were no
danger of fascism taking over,
I would go fishing and not wor-
ry about it," he said.
"We do not expect to get big
until the crisis develops to such
an extent that people are aware of
it, but we feel confident that the
masses are going to be wakened
up," he prophecized.
"Our plans are to effectively use
our resources to get information to
the people. He will pass out 4,000,-
000 copies of the national platform
and millions of copies of pamph-
lets," he added.
Already the SLP has presented
three network television shows
and three network radio programs.
In addition, 80 individual pro-
grams have been broadcast or tele-
vised over local radio and televi-
sion stations.
THE PARTY has set a campaign
fund goal of $200,000 but Hass
feels they will be fortunate if they
collect half that amount.
However, he pointed out that
the SLP programs were well pre-
sented in contrast with the
Democratic a n d Republican
Conventions which he thought

the Labor government for cur-

Amsterdam has seen a large
business growth since the war,
some of it American, under the
encouragement of the Mayor
and his able, amiable indus-
trial expert Dr. Van Soest.
We spent part of an evening
with the Mayor and had a chance
to measure his esteem in the eyes
of Amsterdam's populace. As he
drove us to Amsterdam Univer-
sity's student festival, people, rec-
ognizing the familiar smile through
the car windows, stopped abrupt-
ly and saluted.
At the festival, he introduced
us to student leaders, whom he
knew on a first-name basis, and
dragged us around to the various
booths at Amsterdam's tame ver-
sion of Michigras. As we shoved
through the crowds, the man on
the street walked up to him and
shook his hand as if it was the
greatest moment of a lifetime.
