WHERE

00

WE

STAND?

IT

HAS

BEEN

NE.Am.Y twelve years

now since "flying

saucers"

first

crossed

U .

s.

headlines.

To

estimate

our

position with reference to

where we

stood

ten years ago,

five years ago

and where

we stand today compared

to

our

collective

objectives

is

a

task

not

to

be

envied.

There

is

little

question

but

that

much

of

the

enthusiasm

over

UFO's

has

vanished

in

recent

years.

A

lack

of

sightings

and

important

developments

plus

our

practical

entry

into

the

space age

(thus

reducing the

aura

of

mystery

surroundin�

UFO's)

has

undoubtedly

ac­

counted

for

this

condition.

Also,

the

unimaginable

quantity

of

material--almost

wholly

devoid

of

a

new

approach

or

even

new

data--that

has

flooded

the

UFO

field in

recent

years has

done

little more

than

to

deluge

a respectable

subject

with wholesale garbage.

Books

in

all

probability

have

accounted for

more

new

and

renewed interest in

this

subject

than

anything

else.

Moat researchers

concur

that

the

most epochal

and

controversial

have

It

is,

this writer

believes,

significant

to

note that

only

two

booke

of

unusual importance

have

been

published

on

UFO's

in

the

past

five

years, and

they

both

suffered

from

notoriousl

pared to

Keyhoe

poor

circulation

{especially

when com­

s

first paperback book,

which

sold out

500,000

copies).

 

IF

AESOP

WAS

CORRECT when

he

wrote,

"United

we

stand,

divided

we

fall," then

surely

we

must

have fallen.

One

wonders if

Air

Force

policy

has

underlain

the hope

of

"give them

enough

rope and

they'll hang

themselves."

 

It

might

be

recalled that the Air

Force

has

never

attacked

nor

openly

questioned

the

validity

of

any

fanatic or

crack­

pot

plaguing this

research.

And

a

greater

degree

of

di­

vision

among

UFO

followers

cannot be

conceived,

as

M.

K.

Jessup

eo

adequately

illustrates in

his

article elsewhere

in

this

issue.

 
 

Where does

the

problem

lie?

This

question

can

 

never

be

answered

with

any

certainty.

Most

of us

have

pointed towards official

censorship

and ridicule.

But

other

important

issues

have

survived similar

problems.

Is

it then

the

ridicule

fostered

by

the

fantastic

claims

of

SO

THIS WRITER AT LEAST

is

willing to

guess

that the

situation wi ll greatl y

de te riorate

be fore

there

is any

no ti ceable improve ment.

The

onl y UFO

flap of

any

signi fi­

cance since 1952 was during the earl y days of

Nove mber

1957,

and

that was

di s cre di ted

so

rapi dl y by

s tatements

fro m

the

Air

Force

and

Dr.

Menzel

that it

has

vi rtually

fade d from public re colle ction. News papers forgot the

topic wi thi n a matter of days . The Pre ss today is more

reluctant than

ever

to

publi sh UFO

s tories --feeling,

wi th

some jus ti fi

cati on,

that UFO'e

are

jus t "old hat" after

twelve years .

 

O

The re

is

no

doubt in

thi s

mind but that

thi s

pe riod of
