Seventy-Five Years Ago Today


Roswell, N. M, J M., July 8.—(U,P)

Possession of a “flying disc” was disclosed today by the in- intelligence office of the 509th bomb group of the Roswell army air base,

Officers at the base say that the ‘disc’ was flown in a super- fortress to “higher headquarters” undisclosed,

The intelligence office reported that it gained possession of the “disc” through the co-operation of a Roswell rancher and George Wilson, sheriff at Roswell.

The disc landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week. Not having telephone facilities, the rancher, whose name has not yet been obtained, stored the disc until such time as he was able to contact the Roswell sheriff’s office,

The air base refused to give details of construction of the disc or its appearance.

Residents near the ranch on which the disc was found reported seeing a strange blue light several days ago about 3 a. m.”
