Publisher, Saucer News
"As you may know, I am a
card carrying member of the Amalgamated Flying Saucers
Association. Therefore, like many other people in our
country I am interested in the phenomenon of flying
It is a fascinating subject
that has initiated both scientific fiction fantasies and
serious scientific research.
I watch with great interest
all reports of unidentified flying objects, and I hope
that some day we will know more about this intriguing
Dr. Harlow Shapley, the
prominent astronomer, has stated that there is a
probability that there is other life in the universe.
I favor more research
regarding this matter, and I hope that once and for all
we can determine the true facts about flying saucers.
Your magazine can stimulate much of the investigation
and inquiry into this phenomenon through the publication
of news and discussion of material. This can be of great
help in paving the way to a knowledge of one of the
fascinating subjects of our contemporary world."
