Foreword
It’s my pleasure to present in this volume, the complete collection of the Journal of the Fortean Research Center. As the founder and former director of the Fortean Research Center, I have been active in the investigation of unexplained phenomena since 1965. My first really memorable inquiry occurred in 1968, when I had the privilege of interviewing Herbert Schirmer, then Chief of Police in Ashland Nebraska, after his widely-reported encounter with a landed craft and its occupants on December 3rd, 1967. Over the years I have also served as the Nebraska State Director for the Mutual UFO Network, on the Borad of Advisors of Citizens Against UFO Secrecy, and in various capacities with numerous other organizations around the world. In 1982, I established the Fortean Research Center in Lincoln, Nebraska, and was joined almost immediately by my friend and colleague Scott Colborn in directing the research efforts of this group. Despite its humble beginnings and sometimes sporadic production intervals, the Journal attempted to address the issues and topics of the day: UFO-related government documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the Majestic-12 con troversy, the alien abduction phenomenon, ghosts and hauntings, animal mutilations, psi phenomena, and all matters cryptozoological and Fortean. It was always our hope to serve as a reliable source of information — of data — and let the reader exercise critical-thinking skills in order to draw their own conclusions. During the life of the Fortean Research Center, I was accorded the privilege of being retained by the University of Nebraska as a consultant to organize, and present research papers at two major international conferences on the unexplained in 1982 and 1983; to have numerous articles published, as well as a collection of my writings, An Anthology of the Unexplained. Scott and I were also fortunate to be two of the initial investigators of the 1980 Bentwaters (UK) UFO incident. Although recognized for my extensive work in the areas of animal mutilations, out-of-place animal sightings, Bigfoot reports, the Men-in-Black phenomenon, and occult religions and philosophies, my ability to devote adequate time to the operation of the Center was drastically curtailed when I began graduate studies in theology, and was then called to establish a church plant. Scott Colborn and the late Dale Bacon then were able to masterfully lead the

Fortean Research Center into a period of steady growth and influence among the research community. This volume reproduces the entire corpus of the Journal. The type has been enhanced to increase legibility; where possible, photos originally reproduced xerographically have been scanned from the originals and replaced. Issues which originally appeared in a 7 x 8.5 inch format have been enlarged to fit an 8.5 x 11 inch page. With these exceptions, these are direct facsimiles of the original issues. No attempt at indexing topics has been made. Having recently retired from a 30-year career as a graphic artist and book designer, the last 19 years of which were spent with the University of Nebraska Press, I feel a need to begin to compile some of my research materials into a usable form, and make them available to others, whatever small value they may hold. This is my first, but hopefully not last, offering to the Fortean research community. My thanks and appreciation to the many friends and colleagues who have helped, encouraged, inspired, and supported my interests over the years: Scott Colborn, Jerome Clark, Loren Coleman, Linda Moulton Howe, Jenny Randles, Nick Redfern, Timothy Good, Thomas Adams, and dozens of others; I’d also like to pay tribute to that ever-lengthening list of friends whose presence is greatly missed: Allen and Mimi Hynek, Ivan Sanderson, John Keel. Richard Hall, Budd Hopkins, Bernard Huevelmans, Leonard Stringfield, Dr. Berthold Eric Schwarz, Jim and Coral Lorenzen, Lucius Farish, Roger Gieseking, and Dale Bacon. And many thanks to Theo Paijmans, whose encouragement to get on with this project has finally borne fruit. As my current work as a pastor allows, I hope to bring more material together into a usable format, and present that to you, with my compliments. Raymond Boeche holds a B.A. from Peru State College in art, a Th.M. degree from St. Mark’s School of Divinity, and a Th.D from St. Paul Theological College. Ordained in the Reformed Episcopal Church, Rev. Dr. Boeche served as Rector of Celebration Anglican Church in Lincoln, Nebraska from 1994 through 2005, and currently serves as pastor for adult education at Christ Lutheran Church (LCMS), Lincoln, Nebraska (www.christlutheranchurch.org).

A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

§ all aspects of unexplained phen§ omena, including UFOs , crypto§ zoological mysteries, out-of§ place animal sightings, geolog§ ical and archaeological an§ omalies, psychic phenomena, and § all other areas of study which § may provide data useful to the § resolution of these perplexing § mysteries.

This, the first iss u e of the Journal of t h e Fortean Research Center was put together i n considerable haste. It was our intention to make the first issue twice this size, or sixteen pages in length. Due to time considerations, this was simply impossible. We will remain a quarterly for a while, in order to ease the constraints on time placed on our staff. However,we do hope to publish no less than 64 pages per year, and our goal is twice that amount. We hope you appreciate ou r efforts, and help us to grow bigger, a nd better. Thank you •

here is an abduction case which raises a good many questions-man y of whic h are rather uncomfortable to face. So. however. since these two controversial topics are woven together in this instance. that it is either an overactive imagination. what is the intrusive factor which "tickles" the psyche into constructing this event. 7 I am al s o aware of thehighly skeptical attitude taken by many researchers toward the question of the notorious men in black. we will never be able to make any headway toward understanding these problems . I believe a great many of these people experienced something exceedi ngly strange. or plays for publicity. Aphrodite Clamar have shown that the psychological profiles of many abduction victims show no abnormalities. However. but suggest that they have suffered a psychological trauma-like an abduction. At any rate. tha t the whole abduction question is one for serious consideration. or MIB reports. and for approximately the last 3 years.

And before anyone attempts to dismiss these events as being hoaxes. and I doubt highly that they are allthe products of the imagination. The same can be said of MlB experiences. I am also certain that the question of the MIB phenomenon is not one to be taken lightly. unless we can look at all of the evidence with unbiased eyes. No plays for publicity.

"Some very sharp knife was used to cut these wounds. a five-year-old Hereford cow in Chimayo. almost a circle or oval that sagged away from the belly. The association of mutilations with unidentified flying objects is strong and dramatic in many cases.

The surviving Alien was male and called itself "EBE". The Alien was thoroughly interrogated by military intelligence personnel at a base in New Mexico. The craft was recovered by the military. an aircraft of extraterrestrial origin crashed in the desert of New Mexico. In 1947. when he died to an unexplained illness. During the time period EBE was alive. approximately 40 light years from Earth. The Aliens were found to be creatures not related to human beings (Atch 1).

One Alien of extrater restrial origin survived the crash.TOP SECRET EXECUTIVE BRIEFING (TS/ORCON) In June 1947. I n late 1949. This was the beginning of the United States involvement with the UFO investigations. a civilian pilot flying over the Cascade mountains of Washington State observed nine flying discs (later referred to as UFOs). he provided valuable information regarding space technology. four Alien (non.homo-sapiens) bodies were recovered in the wreckage. It was learned the Alien came from a planet in the Zeta Reticuli star system. EBE lived until June 18. and exobiological matters. origins of the Universe.

The program was operated under three different code names: Grudge.000 reports analyzed by the Air Force were considered hoaxes. The original mission of the Air Force program was to collect and analyze all reported sightings or incidents involving UFOs and determine whether the information could be interrupted as having any bearing on the security of the United States. Reports collected under Project Aquarius were considered actual sightings of Alien aircrafts or contacts with Alien life forms. Some information was evaluated with the idea of using the gained data to advance our own space technology and future space programs.

The aircraft was apparently abandoned by the Aliens for some unexpl ained reason. A detailed description and further information regarding the aircraft is explained in Atch 3. However. the operating instrumentations of the aircraft were so complex that our scientists could not interrupt their operation. The aircraft was considered a technological marvel by United States scientists. [TRUE COPY] [RE-TYPED BY RWB 6/20/87] ?????????? =ILLEGIBLE MATERIAL . The aircraft was in excellent flying condition. since no Alien life forms were found in or around the aircraft.TOP SECRET (TS/ORCON) In 1958.

This decision was arrived at during the (????) meeting (Atch 4) in 1966. The United States felt relatively sure the Aliens' exploration of Earth was non.aggressive and non. The reason was twofold. The NSC felt this public . The study concluded that sufficient data did not exist that would indicate UFOs threatened the security of the United States. The final conclusion satisfied the government and allowed the Air Force to officially step out of the UFO investigating business. Therefore.

TOP SECRET (TS/ORCON) When the Air Force officially cl osed Project Blue 'Book in Dec. The Alien's interest in our nuclear weapons can onl y be attributed t o the future threat of a nuclear war on Earth. M 12 feels conJ fident the Aliens are on an exploration of our solar sys tem for peaceful purposes. I n order to continue the investigation of UFO sightings and i n cidents in secrecy. 1969. The NSC felt investigations of UFO s ightings and incidents had to continue in secrecy without any public knowledge. investigators from CIA/DCD and MJ12 were assigned t o military and othe-r governmental agencies with orders to investigate all legitimate UFO/IAC si ghtings and incidents. Project Aquarius continued operation under control of NSC/ MJ12. Many reported military sightings and incidents occur over nuclear weapons bases. These agents are presently operating at various l ocations throughout the the United States and Canada. These agents are collecting reports of UFO/I AC sightings and incidents occurring on or near sensitive governmental inst allations. Obviously (for operational security reasons) this could not be allowed. eventually some uncleared and unbriefed Air Force or Defense Department civil ian officials would obtain the facts behind P roject Aquarius. The reasoning behind the decision was this: I f the Air Force cont inued its investigation of UFOs. [TRUE COPY] [RE-TYPED BY RWB 6/20/87] ??????????=ILLEGIBLE MATERIAL . However. NOTE: Aliens have been extremely interested in our nuclear weapons and nuclear research. The Air Force have initiated measures to insure the security of the nuclear weapons from Alien theft or destructi on. All reports a r e filtered either directly or indirectly to MJ12. we must continue to observe and track the Aliens' movements until it is de= termined that the Aliens' future plans contain no threat to our national security or the civilization of Earth.

"Bonnie" and had used his name. As of this pri nting "Bonnie" has had no further calls. Thanks goes to Bill Moore for his help in putting the "real" Bob Collins and "Bonnie" in contact. So, will the "fake" Bob Collins please come forward? Also mentioned in our last Journal was the reference to the archived radio interviews that Dale and I have done with many researchers on the weekly radio show "Exploring Unexplained Phenomena" airing in Lincoln, NE. Dale and I frequently call people all over the United States to interview on the air, and we have been organizing the taped interviews into a sort of library. Should you, as a member of our Center, be interested in checking an archived interview out from our library, please send us a stamped, self-addressed envelope and we will send you a listing of interviews and details on shipping, etc. This library of material is restricted to members only, please! I am attempting to collect my thoughts and pull data together for a future report on the landing(s) of one or more UFO's outside the perimeters of RAF Bentwater and RAF Woodbridge in what is called Rendlesham forest, in Britian in December of 1980. Contrary to a well known British researcher's recent statements that she is not convinced that it was a UFO event, the interviews I took part in with two former servicemen who were direct participants tend to convince me otherwise. With regard to preparing a report for future publication on this alleged case, should anyone in our membership or among our readers have information on the above described landing(s), please contact me. Your sources will remain anonymous and your information shared will be credited to you, if you so desire. I regard this case as being one of the most important modern day UFO-related incidents and worthy

P'roll the DIRECTOR

In the last issue of the Journal of the Portean Research Center I reported on the mysterious late night phone call that "Bonnie", a UFO abductee from the Lincoln, Nebraska area, had received from someone calling himself "Bob Collins". I received a phone call from Bill Moore, noted author and current researcher of the MJ-12 material, right after we went to print. Bill asked me if "Bonnie" would like to talk with the "Bob Collins" that Bill knew. I spoke with "Bonnie", and she agreed. She was interested to see if there was a voice similarity with the previous caller who had called her late one might ("Bonnie" has an unlisted telephone number) and asked her questions regarding her UFO related experiences. With agreement from all parties Bill and I set up a phone call from a neutral number in Lincoln to a number believed to be a California pay phone. After some difficulty "Bonnie" was able to place a call and speak with Bill Moore's aquaintance, Bob Collins. "Bonnie" reports that the person she spoke with was not the same individual that had called her previously. She told me that her talk with Bob Collins went well, and that Bob Collins has an interest in UFO research in general, and a partial interest in UFO abduction research. She did pass along something interesting that Bob Collins told her. Apparently, Bob Collins believes that the mysterious late night call "Bonnie" received was a message that "They" (read UFO entities here) knew about him, and were familiar with him. The inference from Bob was that a UFO-related entity had called

through the area, drop us a note and we would like to see you. our library of books, journals and taped radio shows is growing, and these valuable sources of information are for your interest and usage as a member. , B7cause we have had many ~nqu1res as to how people can assist or help through volunteer~ng their services, here are some ~deas for you • • . "So you want to volunteer & help"· 1) Do archival research at the. local library, your local papers' files, and the local historical society. This is really fun ..• not to mention the wealth of information on the unexplained that exist right under our noses! 2) Write an article based on your research and submit it for consideration for publication in the Journal. You will receive full credit for your work .•. all articles not used will be returned to you. 3) Write a book review. What is your particular interest? What do you read in the area of unexplained phenomena? Write up a review and submit it for consideration! 4) Clip articles from your local paper and send to us. Many times a local account doesn 't make it to the national wire services. Help keep the Fortean Research Center informed! 5) Tell us about someone you fee~ would make an interesting, art~culate quest on "Exploring Unexplained Phenomena", our weekly radio show. 6) Local volunteers can hel p arrange meetings, assist with the l~yout of th7 Journal, and help w~th catalog1ng our library. Also should you have interest in field research, sign up for a class to be taught on "interviewing the witness". These are just a few of the ways you can assist us. we thank you for your financial support and for your other volunteer c ontributions. With all said I will wrap up this month's

special Response to the John Lear Stateaent After a great deal of thought I realize that there are a few things that I must say regarding the statements made by John Lear; which appeared in the Fall '88 issue of the Journal of the Fortean Research Center. I respect Mr. Lear's reputation and admire his straightforwardness concerning the subjects of UFO's, the retrieval of crashed UFO's, abductions of human beings by occupants of said UFO's, and the government's attempts to conceal everything about our extraterrestrial visitors while they (the government) try to negotiate with the entities ~or advanced technology. or whatever it is they want. It is quite obvious that John Lear has either done very careful and extensive research (evidence of which I would like to see), or he dabbles in speculation on a grand scale. If even half of what he claims is true then there are many people who have every reason to be scared to death. From those directly involved with MJ-12, to anyone who has ever had even the slightest contact with any of our "visitors." I've pledged allegiance to our flag and grew up believing that this country that I love and cherish was the safest place to be in the whole world. I was under the impression that we were protected by our government and our military from outside intrusion. How can it be that those we have put our trust in
5

could betray us by witholding truths which we have a right to know, and by using us as c ommodities? Hundreds, maybe thousands of people hav e reported being taken against their will; manipulated, probed, implanted, and even impregnated for who knows what purpose. Citizens of our country and others have seemingly suffered rashes, burns, incisions, and humil iati ng and frightening helplessness at the hands (or claws) of sometimes terrifying creatures. And the government we trust has chosen to look the other way while the lives of innocent people are altered by an alien intelligence? I was taken in the night from the warmth and safety (?) of my home, and pulled upwards by a powerful light into a strange environment . My heart pounded with fear as my own body lay numb and immobilized. I screamed and c ried inside, but in fact was unable to make a sound. Their pale smooth hands touched my face and neck, with the express purpose of placing images (symbols) in my mind. Symbols that I would see in my sleep and would haunt my waking hours for months after. Another occurence, a few years ago, left me with over thirty hours of "missing time"; time which still remains unaccounted for. These "visitors" have in reality caused me both physical and psychological difficulty. I did not invite them into my life, nor did I agree to participate in their monitoring of humanity. They took me . I have asked and pleaded to be left alone. They have made it known through thought and action that they are not finished with me yet, and that they have a "right" to do what they have to. Although I haven't sustained any permenant physical damage, I cannot call these beings "benevolent space brothers . " When I am cooperative they are benign. They have said that they will not burt me, and that they do not

kill. Perhaps they are a moral species who knows nothing of our government's dealings. I pray that this be true. The fact that they do exist and can manipulate us however they want is so unthinkable and unacceptable to the vast majority and even the scientific community; they must think of this as fantasy, or mass hallucination or delusion. Perhaps, if the cover-up is as extensive as John Lear has implied, the government probably encourages that way of thinking. How much longer will they be able to fool •most of the people"? I know that I•m not crazy; but what is happening is crazy. I have a lot of questions; where do I go for the answers? one last question for MJ-12 and the National Security Council-am I on the list? B.

There have been many reports worldwide of UFO sightings over the years. Fewer reports are avai~able regarding alleged UFO crashes. Leonard Stringfield has done most of the research work regarding modern-day UFO crashes, and has my respect and thanks for his efforts! The followinq reports offer a historical view for our consideration and examination, as what you are about to read was originally printed in the Daily State Journal at Lincoln, in 18841 I recently spent an enjoyable morning at the Nebraska State Historical Society in Lincoln, Nebraska, researching this highly strange story. Without further comment, lets begin this story of an alleged UFO crash, with this brief announcement found on page 13 of the Daily State Journal at Lincoln, June 8th, 1884: "A story is told in our dispatches this morning of the fall of a most wonderful visitor, apparently from some other planet, on the prairie near Benkelman, in Dundy county, this state. It appears incredible, but we have no hesitancy in vouching for the intelligence of the writer, who is a man that generally knows what he is talking about. The details are given with a fullness and particularity that almost command belief. Unless the alleged facts are greatly magnified or distorted, this unusual object of wonder must be an air vessel belonging originally to some other planet which sailed too far from its orb and after wandering in space has at last been caught by the attraction of the earth and drawn to it. Further investigations will be hastily pursued and awaited with the liveliest interest." We then turn to page #5 of the same paper and date, and find the

================== Fortean Research Journal ===================
following: "A CELESTIAL VISITOR ... A Startling and CUrious Story from the Ranges of Cundy County. A Blazing Aerolite Falls to the Astounded Earth. It is Evidently a Machine of Human Manufacture. All Particulars that are Yet Learned." "Benkelman, June 7 - A most remarkable phenomenon occured about one o'clock yesterday afternoon at a point 35 miles northwest of this place. John w. Ellis, a well known ranchman, was going out to his herd in company with 3 of his herders and several other cowboys engaged in the annual roundup. While riding along a draw they heard a terrific rushing, roaring noise overhead, and looking up, saw what appeared to be a blazing meteor of immense size falling at an angle to the earth. A moment later it struck the ground out of sight over the bank. Scrambling up the steep hill they saw the object bounding along half a mile away and disappear in another draw. Galloping towards it with all their speed, they were astounded to see several fragments of cog-wheels and other pieces of machinery lying on the ground, scattered in the path made by the aerial visitor, glowing with heat so intense as to scorch the grass for a long distance around each fragment and make it impossible for one to approach it. Coming to the edge of the deep ravine into which the strange obj ect had fallen, they undertook to see what it was. But the heat was so great that the air about it was fairly ablaze and i t emmitted a light so dazzling that the eye could not rest upon it more than a moment. An idea of the heat may be gained from the fact that one of the party, a cowboy named Alf Williamson, stood with his head incautiously exposed over the bank, and in less than half a minute be fell senseless. His face was desperately blistered and his hair singed to a crisp. His condition is said to be dangerous.
7

The distance from the aerolite or whatever it is, was nearly 2oo' feet. The burned man was taken to Mr. Ellis ' house, cared for as well as circumstances would al1ow and a doctor sent for. His brother, who lives in Denver, has just been telegraphed for." "Finding it impossible to approach the mysterious visitor the party turned back on its ' trail. Where it first touched the earth , the ground was sandy and bare of grass. The sand was fused to a n unknown depth over a space about 20 feet wide by 80 feet long, and the melted stuff was still bubbling and hissing. Between this and the final resting place there were several other like spots where it had come in contact with the fround, but none so well marked." "Finding it impossible to do any investigating, Mr. Ellis returned to his house and sent out messengers to neighboring ranches. When night came the light from the wonderful object beamed almost like the sun, and the visitors who went out to see it were entirely powerless to bear the glow." "This morning another visit was made to the spot. In the party was E. W. Rawlins, brand inspector for this district, who came into Benkelman tonight, and from whom a full verification of particulars is obtained. The smaller portions of the scattered machinery had cooled so that they could be approached, but not handled. One piece that looked like the blade of a propeller screw, of a metal in appearance like brass, about 16 i nches wide, 3 inches thick and 3 and 1/2 feet long, was picked up on a spade. It would not weigh more than 5 lbs, but appeared as strong and compact as any known metal. A fragment of a wheel with a milled rim, apparently having had a diameter of 7 or 8 feet, was also picked up. It seemed to be of the same material and had the same remarkable lightness." "The aerolite, or whatever it is, seems to be about 50 or 60

==================== Fort:ean Research Journal ===================
feet long, cylindrical, and about 10 or 12 feet in diameter. Great excitement exists in the vicinity and the round-up is suspended while the cowboys wait for the wonderful find to cool off so thev can examine it." "Mr. Ellis is here and will take the first train to the land office with the intention of securing the land on which the strange thing lies, so that his claim to it cannot be disputed." "A party left here for the scene an hour ago, and will travel all night. The country in the vicinity is rather wild and rough, and the roads are hardly more than trails. Will telegraph all particulars as fast as obtained." A follow-up to the above story appeared in the Daily state Journal published on June 10, 1884: "The Magical Meteor." "It Dissolves Like a Drop of Dew Before the Morning sun." The Most Mysterious Element of the strange Phenomenon." "Special to the State Journal, Benkelman, June 9, 1884": "Your correspondent has just returned from the spot where the aerial visitor fell last Friday. It is gone, dissolved into air. A tremendous rain storm fell yesterday afternoon, beginning about 2 o'clock. As it approached in reqular blizzard style, most of those assembled to watch the mysterious visitor fled to shelter. A dozen or more, among whom was your correspondent, waited to see the effect of the rain upon the glowing mass of metal . The storm came down from the north, on its crest a sheet of flying spray and a torrent of rain. It was impossible to see more than a rod through the driving, blinding mass. It lasted for half an hour, and when it slackened so that the aerolite should have been visible it was no longer there. The draw was running three feet deep in water and supposing it had floated off the strange vessel the party
8

crossed over at the risk of their lives." "They were astounded to find that the queer object had melted, dissolved by the water like a spoonful of salt. Scarcely a vestige of it remained. Small, jelly-like pools stood here and there on the qround, but under the eyes of the observers these grew thinner and thinner till they were but muddy water joining the rills that led to the current a few feet away. The air was filled with a faint sweetish smell." The whole affair is bewildering in the highest degree, and will no doubt forever remain a mystery." "Alf Williamson, the injured cowboy, left yesterday for Denver, accompainied by his brother. It is feared he will never recover his eyesight, but otherwise he does not appear to be seriously injured." There has been a continued stream of investigators here for the past two days, among them a number of members of the press. The Denver Tribune representative was among the witnesses to the vanishment of the wonderful visitor. There are a thousand theories afloat as to how it came and what it was, but they are all now unfortunately incapable of solution." A final mention is found in a column titled "Topics of the Times", in the Journal dated June 11, 1884: "It is believed the aerial visitor that recently descended from the sky in Dundy county was the democratic candidate for president the bourbons have been looking for. Its dissolution by contact with water would appear to support the theory." I noted the reference to the Denver Tribune representative in the above account, so I placed a call to the Colorado Historical Society and spoke with Jim Parker at the Colorado History MUseum in Denver. Briefing Jim as to the particulars of this story, I engaged his services in an

================== Fortean Research Journal ==================
archival search of the nenyer Tribune for the month of June, 1884. Jim was to look for a mention of this story and report to the Portean Research Center. Several days later I received a call from Jim explaining that he had looked at the entire month and not found a mention of the Benkelman incident. So at this point we are left with the above accounts to draw from and form our conclusions. was there a UFO crash in the summer of 1.884 in Benkelman, Nebraska? Was the incident a manufactured account ••• an attempt at gauging our qullability? Was the report a play on the political sensibilities of the times, as might be inferred by the last account? There are precedents of articles that appeared in the late 1800's and early 1900's that were partly based on fact and purposely exaggerated as an audience builder for the paper, so one must exercise caution in judging a report of this nature. It should be noted that in the first account the writer is describing the initial report and says: "The details are given with a fullness and particularity that almost command belief". Note that the"details almost" command us to believe. The particular writing style of the times aside, we are admonished to almost believe, as if the writer is issuing warning as to the possibility that the story just might be contrived. It should also be noted for the record that the writer of this intitial piece does preface the above remarks by saying: "It appears incredible, but we have no hesitancy in vouching for the intelligence of the writer, who is a man that generally knows what he is talking about". This should be considered as a defense to the claim that the articles aren't "tom-foolery" and are based in fact, although the writer referred to above "generally knows" as opposed to being thoroughly

trustworthy. Was there a crash of a UFO in Benkelman, Nebraska in 1884? we will leave the readers of the Journal of the Fortean Research Center with the story at this point unresolved . A friend of mine has relatives living in the Benkelman area and I have asked him to make inquires for us. Perhaps a member of the Fortean Research Center living in the Denver area could search later Denver Tribunes and report their findings. Should additional information surface in the future as to the veracity or rejection of this account, you'll read about it in this Journal ••.. and we aren't kidding!

Unusual Mars Surface Features on July 20, 1976 two unmanned spacecraft-Viking Orbiters 1 and 2-were in orbit around the planet Mars. The objectives of these craft were to present the Earth with unprecedented photographs of the surface from an orbital survey. on the 35th pass, the Orbiter 1. cruised a thousand miles over a barren region called "Cydonia," 41 degrees above Mars' equator in the northern hemisphere. During this pass a photograph (frame 35A72) was taken which has become very famous.

================= Fortean Research Journal ====================
Toby owen, a member of NASA's Deep Space Network imaging team noticed an oddly-shaped mesa. The mesa had characteristics which made it look like a human face. Those who noticed the unusual feature noted the oddity, but filed the frame along with the hundreds of others the Orbiter had sent to Earth. During a press conference giving informational updates on the Viking mission, Gary Soffen, the Viking project scientist, displayed the frame to a roomfull of reporters stating, "Isn't it peculiar what tricks of lighting and shadow can do. When we took the picture a few hours later it all went away; it was just a trick, just the way the light fell on it." (Hoagland 1987) Vincent DiPietro, an electrical engineer with fourteen years experience in digital electronics and image processing, came across the photo of the "face" in a magazine. He had dismissed the magazine article as ficticious at the time, but two and a half years later he saw the photo in the archived material of the National Space Science Data Center at Goddard Spaceflight Center. The idea that NASA had archived the photo as "Head" caused him to look at it more seriously. DiPietro, along with his friend and colleague Gregory Molenaar-a computer scientist-enlarged the mile-wide facial feature using digital computer techniques. The first images were very gray with poor resolution, but the team continued to develop the best possible means of photo enhancement. DiPietro and Molenaar developed a technique which they called S.P.I.T., or starburst Pixel Interleaving Technique. A pixel is the smallest dot in a computer-reconstructed image. This technique sharpened the sawtooth edges and other pixel errors. In an effort to check the technique for distortion error, 10 the process was used on known Earth features, such as Dulles Airport in Virginia and the Pentagon building in Washington D.c. The photo details were remarkably clear. At this point t~e imaging team went back to the Viking files to see if they could find any more photos of the "face". 35 days after the first Orbiter took frame 35A72, it had taken a ~econd photo (70A13) of t~e same area. The same curious mesa was visible. Interestingly enough, frame 70A13 also showed what appears to be a monstrous rectanqualr pyramid with four sides which go to the surface as sharp angles. This image gives the appearance that the "pyramid" is l:>uttressed, as opposed to naturally formed. on May 1, 1980 DiPietro and Molenaar broke their discoveries to the world. While initially poor, the interest began to mount. Other scientists and interested parties became involved in the mystery of the Martian land features, including Dr. John Brandenberg-who will be a featured speaker at the 1989 MUFON Symposium in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Mr. Harry A. Jordan of Omaha, Nebraska. The photograph used on the cover of this issue of the journal depicts the "Analog Model of Cydonia" Mr. Jordan and associates constructed in 1987. A publication of interest to those who wish to learn more about the works of DiPietro and Molenaar is entitled, unusual Martian Land Features 4th edition and is available through Mars Research in Glenn Dale, Maryland. notes: The Monuments of Ma;s, Richard c.

The Mars Bnicpaa on Earth
by Barry A. Jordan

While Mars made its closest approach to earth in 17 years certain individuals recently initiated efforts to 'block' some honest scientific knowledge and discoveries from the mind of the public. This current public naivete' regarding new Mars data is due to 'flawed' reporting by uninformed news "personalities" and lack if well educated and "properly briefed news media" on knowing when, what, and where to ask intelligent questions (for once). As if their 'cosmetic cosmology' weren't enough we are now subjected to coJIIlllents from supposedly noted authors, and 'news media' scientists who are offended by "alleged" Monuments on Mars that continue to cry 'fraud.' I for one, am tired of seeing and hearing about the "Face" on Mars from people who are obviously not qualified to comment on some very real, serious, and timely research. They should not only be considered malicious and detrimental to the education of the public, but fast approaching a line of decorum and respect . Those skeptics are obviously person's when they've lost sight of their own goals appear to re-double their efforts against someone elses. In October Mr. Isacc Asimov stated on national television that if anyone who believed the "Face" on Mars was anything other than a curious trick of light had to be an "idiot." I lost all respect for his work and he as a person. In November of 1987 Mr. David Letterman threw Richard Hoagland& book "Tba Monuments of Kars" into a trash can on national television, and a second time when he had his "parking valet" dressed to poke fun at NASA Viking pictures, one in which "line losses" from the binary print-outs were de11

picted as tracks from an alien land rover, one must wonder why all their flap about "Monuments on Mars" as a hoax, why all the attention? Obviously the "truth" is indeed stranger than the recent 'fiction' that skeptics can generate to sell to the masses. It's time to tell the real "truth" about Mars. Photocopies of 'scientifically scaled models' (one containing the "Face" amonq other things) were recently supplied to USGS in Flagstaff, Ariz. currently under contract with NASA to map regions on Mars for future landings o~ robotic and manned missions. The large model of 'Cydonia' completed in Omaha, Nebr. in 1987 displays many other enigmatic surface features sculpted directly over enlarged photo-prints from Viking. During construction o~ the model and since, consultation with many 'scientists' (not reporters or writers) who've worked for NASA·, and review of the Cydonia data with former astronauts has been ongoing from Washington D.C. to California. Many 'credible people' within professional scientific communities find the data fascinating. It took two years, three months, and fourtee.n days to combine the hard-work of less than a dozen people who, in my opinion, are "Heroes• and not the "alleged hurters" the 'hyper-spaced media' would have people believe. Those "news" and "media" per-

sonalities apparantly feel that if they've not "scooped" a subject first then it never happened, or worse yet if their "offical experts" didn't know anything then it must not be true. Have I got news for them. The "idiots• of which Mr. Asimov and Mr. Letterman speak are : Dr. c. Wes Churchman, Nobel Laurette' and Professor Emeritis of the Center for Peace and conflicts-University of California at Berkeley, Dr. John Brandenburg, Dr. Mark carlotto, Mr. Vince Di Pietro, and Greg Molenaar of Mars Research, Washington D.C, Dr. Randy Pozos, and Richard Hoagland of The Mars Project in California, and myself with The Mars Project in omaha. Thousands of hours of personal time and expertise unselfishly shared without regard to monetary gain or publicity speaks of a noble human trait, a quest for true knowledge, not 'fabricated falsehoods. ' Dr. Brian O'Leary, astronaut, currently Chairman of the Presidents Commission on Space is one ot the original principle members of "The Independent Mars Investigation." For the record: 1. In 1976, Mr. Gerald Soffen and Dr~ Tobia owen while viewing digital printouts at JPL from Viking spacecraft saw the "Face" first. In all fairness to NASA not making an "official" overture one must consider over 66,000, 5"x5" binary print-outs which one or even two people just don't interpret overnite. 2. Mr. Vince DiPietro and Greg Molenaar, imaging experts with NASA (who developed the 'StarBurst Interleaving Pixel Technique') rediscovered the same "Face" in the archives of the National Space Science Data Center. Frames 35A72 and 70Al3 showed the face. 3. DiPietro and Molenaar subsequently approached Dr. Randy Pozos, Anthropoloqist, Mr. Thomas Raughtenburg, a social systems analyst from. Berkeley and subsequent contact with M~. Richard Hoagland, f ormer science advisor to Walter Cronkite, was engaged to generate political pressure for funds for a return mission to Mars to confirm the findings. "The Monuments of Mars" was lat~ub­ lished by North Atlantic Books and authored by Richard c. Hoagland. 4. Dr. Mark Carlotta, of 'TAScu, The Analytical Sciences Corporation in Reading, Mass. later developed the 'Shape from Shading Algorithm' which effectively cc:mfirmed, clarified, and further refined results of the old EDR tapes. Then the WORLD news, among other tabloids, printed Carlotta's processed data of the "Face" without his permission. They also printed it "backwards" the first time. Later 'tabloids' at least got the picture oriented properly this past September. In answer to those who would call my colleagues with "The Mars Project", and "Mars Research", "idiots" here is a free lesson for them and finally some honest answers tor the American people. A second fac·e has been discovered in the Utopia region by Dr. John Brandenburg with 'Mars Research' in Washington, D.C. It looks just like the "Face" at Cydonia. A Fourth Edition of "Unusual Martian Surface Features" was just published with the finding authored by Dr. Brandenburg, Mr. Vince DiPietro, including Dr. Mark carlotta's results. Work by 'The Mars Project in omaha' has also published findings which reveal: 1.

Nevertheless. Meanwhile.

or not Venus was actually visible at the time. The press always accepted that answer, as did many UFO investigators. Persistent researchers, however, continued their quest for truth and exposed these fake answers. Unfortunately, their audience was small and the results of their hard work fell on deaf ears. Now we are in the era of the 1980's. The Air Force no longer investigates UFO's, hence UFO investigators no longer need to play the "truth squad" role with their answers. Unfortunately, other groups now come up with explanations tor UFO's based on wishful thinking rather than facts. On December 29, 1980 Betty Cash and Vickie Landrum encountered a large diamond-shaped UFO near the city of Houston, Texas. Since that time claims have been made that the object was a secret u.s. nuclear aircraft, a nuclear powerplant gone out of control, an alien spacecraft piloted by u.s. military pilots, and a number of other strange thinqs. There is no evidence that any of these explanations are true. In fact, most are stranger than if we were to accept the UFO explanation. The Contactee Experience as an Initiation by Ida M. Kannenberg For the past three years I have been studying the contactee experience as a process of init~ation. That pr~cess, no matter ~n what time per~od, or in what part of the word follows the same basic pattern. 1. First, the one to be initiated is somehow cut ott from his communal companions. In very primitive countries this means seizing the young initiand, usually at puberty, and keeping him {or her) for a period of time often a year or more, in a ' s eparate place. xn the UFO experience we read that the person contacted is frequently alone at night, often driving a car on'some lonely unfrequented road. Later as he tries to tell his family 0 ~ friends about his experience, sighting or contact, he is so ridiculed that he withdraws more and more into himself, and in this fashion completes the element of separation. 2. Secondly, the place where the primitive initiand is kept is round, a hut or cave, a compound. The round element is representative of the womb from which after a gestation period, he will emerge, "born again" as a ·more highly developed spiritual and cultural person. In the UFO experience the person had a sighting from his car, which is reasonably rounded, or he ma~ be taken, sooner or later, ~nto a round or oval room, or a squarish one with the corners rounded off, or a v~ulted room. Or he may have had h~s sighting while standing in a field irrigated in the circular fashion, or in a racetrack, or a ball park rounded by the bleachers. 3. The third element is that the initiand, or contactee, is shown or given certain things that have symbolic meaning, or the events he passes through are themselves symbolic, as are certain rituals.

4. Fourth, he finds himself given a tutor or mentor , or teach~rs, or guides. This mentor will stick to him come hell or high water (or 30 degrees bel ow zero) . We f~nd an example today in the Kachi nas of the Hopi Indians . In the 1950 era several contactees reported meeting a personage wno wore a mask or half- mask . All of these represent t he myth ical ancestors who gave t hat community its earliest arts and sciences and rules of conduct, and who return periodically to teach and guide in the present. 5. In addition t o the teachings the init iand , or contactee , finds he must undergo certain discipl ines. Some of these may seem quite inane, as Whitley Streiber was told not to eat c hocolate, and he had a terrible struggle trying to follow this injunction . The one being initiated will undergo actual ordeals, which get tougher and tougher. He will be required to make certain vows , usually to serve God and to help his fellow man . 6. He must l earn the traditions of his community . In the case of the contactee he wi l l find himself studying ancient civilizations and basic religions of the world. 7. In addition to all this he will be given certain tasks. Some of these will seem quite pointless, other t i mes they will be most valuable. In my first task I was told to go to Virginia Beach and study a l l I could in the Edgar cayce writings about Atlantis, and next to go to the Smithsonian and study the Sumerian civilization. The tasks will become more and more difficult, which gives a feeling of climbing, of advancing, or of ascension. 8. After a very long time, perhaps years i n the contactee experience, a peak of ascension or a topping off point will be reached. At this time certain revelations will be given. I n very primitive societies the initiand actually climbs a tall pole or a tree

truD~~ At the top he is made to pelieve he hears the voice of God. 9. A further result ls that the now initiated one finds himself capable of special abilities. We hear o f contactees who have become quite psychic and much more aware of special events taking place arounc.t them . lO. Flnally the initiate becomes aware t hat he has attained a more responsible place in his community . He has been "elevated." In some societies, as Amerindian he might be permitted to continu~ his study to become shaman. As I have indicated the progress through the pattern of initiation is precisely the same in all communities, from the Australian bushman to the priest in our modern churcp . The process is the same, only the outer dressing corresponds to the time and place of the initiate . As ~ontactees we may ask, "Into what pJ:e we being initiated?" Good question. My mentors answered thus, " Into a world wide organization dedicate to the purpose of helping peace and justice return again to the world." I asked, "Again? Has there ever been such peace and harmony in THIS world? " They said, " Yes. But so long ago history has forgotten. It SHALL come again. It has been so destined! " Ida M.

UFO in Rural Nebraska by Dale Bacon
THE

SIGHTING On the morning of Tuesday, July 15th, 1986, a twenty-six year old machine operator living in a small town north of Lincoln, Nebraska was fully awakened for no apparent reason. The clock near his bed indicated the time to be exactly 3:30 am. Allen (not his real name, this is on file in the Fortean Research Center) climbed from bed and was going to enter the bathroom when he changed his mind. Instead he walked into the bedroom of his son. Allen's wife and infant son were visiting relatives at the time leaving him alone in the double-wide trailer situated on the outskirts of this small farming community. At the time of the incident Allen did not think his actions unusual, but upon recall he wondered why he had entered the son's room. There had been no real reason to qo there, but he did so anyway. Once in the bedroom Allen walked to the southwest window which overlooked the backyard of his home. To his amazement and surprise Allen said he observed a bright yellow object hovering approximately 50 feet above the ground, just a few feet over the tree line of his yard. Allen claims to have watched the circular object for 10-15 minutes from the bedroom window, during this time the object appeared to pulsate. Desiring to get a better view of the object, Allen re-entered his bedroom and quickly pulled on a pair of pants. The weather conditions for July 21, 1986 (according to the National Weather Service) was mostly clear skies, visibility of 12 miles. Winds were out of the south at 10 mph, with thin ice clouds at 20,000 feet. Once outside Allen noticed that the object appeared to be moving up and down very slowly, as well as gently movinq back and forth. He reported it to resemble a "slow 19

Artistic depiction of the sighting based on eyewitness description rocking boat." His first thought was that the swaying of the trees might be causing tho object to appear to move. He looked at other trees in the area and did not notice any movement. Allen considered phoning a neighbor to see if he was the only one who could see this, but did not. Instead he walked towatd the tree line, getting closer to the yellow object. As he moved to the southwest he consciously made an attempt to "telepathically" communicate with the object. His report stated, "I tried to talk to · the object with brain waves and thinking friendly thoughts and ones of letting me know more about them or it." As Allen began to "think" to the object, he claims it started to pulsate in color from bright to dark yellow. He was reminded of "a flashing yellow traffic light, but much slower, like someone breathing." Allen claims to have not removed his gaze from the object at any time after it beg~n to pulsate. After what seemed to be only a few minutes, the object stopped pulsating and began to slowly move to the northwest until it could not be seen. He climbed a pile of wooden pallets stacked about 8 feet in height, but still could not see the object. Allen quickly returned to his house with the idea to get dressed and follow the object on his motorcycle. Upon entering the

=================== Fortean Research Journal ==========================
trailer he saw that one hour and ten minutes had passed from the time he first went outside to view the object. Knowing he had to be at work in less than a half-hour Allen did not pursue the object. Instead, he came into Lincoln and reported what he had seen to an investigator of the Fortean Research center. INITIAL INVESTIGATION My initial contact with Allen showed the man to be highly excited and "pumped up" with adrenalin. Approximately 3:00 pm I went to ,Allen's home and made mv preliminary study, consisting of a taped interview, making drawings of the area and taking HIU&llr!i"-'!l!t~t;s of the yard, including the tree line. A visit to the area where the alleged object had been stationary revealed nothing out of the ordinary. When interviewed, neighbors in the area reported nothing unusual that they had been aware of during the night. One neighbor who owns some horses very near the location of the object reported no activity from the animals during the incident. Allen reported that at least one dog down the street had been "barking as if in pain" at the time of the sighting. PHONE CALLS Telephone calls to various operational services which may have had some activity in the air that night revealed the following: Lincoln Control Tower: The tower had shut down at ten o'clock, with no information available. omaha Radar A~proach Control: The area-of the s gohtlng was being monitored by Minnesota Radar control at IFR level. Unless deliberate contact is made with the tower ORAC does not follow air traffic in the Lincoln area . Air National Guard: There were no flight operations in this area at the time noted. Army Nationa l Guard: The earliest air operations begin at nine o'clock. No operations in the area . National Weather Services: Weather balloons are sent a l oft twice daily, at 5 : 30 am and 5:3o pm. Flight Services: There had been an air taxi arriving at Lincoln Airport at 3:09 am, departing at 3:18 am southeast to Kansas City, MO. At 3:06 am there had been radio contact with a plane in the area, but there was no indication of the location of the craft. FINDINGS Measuring the distance from where Allen had been standing to where he claimed the object was s i tuated gave us a figure of 150 ft. The approximate height of the trees over which the object was seen was 20-25 ft. Allen had said the object was about the size of a basketball when comparing a handheld coin at arms length. Based on this information and using the Pythagorum Theorum, it has been estimated that the object could have been between 53-67 feet wide and between 16-20 feet in height . There were no related reports found anywhere in the area for that night, so it would seem that the only known eyewitness was the reportee. Allen has a limited knowledge of astronomy, consisting of wellknown constellations, stars and planets, yet he has no trouble identifying man-made satellites. SUMMARY/ FOLLOW-UP On November 27, 1988 Allen appeared as a telephone quest on the "Exploring Unexplained Phenomena" radio broadcast to relate his sighting to listeners of the pr ogr am. During the broadcast Allen stated that a few months earlier his four-year-old son had asked him about the yellow light seen through the childs' bedroom window. According to Allen, he had never mentioned the i nci dent to his son and to the

========== Fort:ean Research Journal ===========
best of his knowledge neither had his wife. At the time of the initial report Allen had compared the incident to the birth of his son. It had filled him with wonder and made him teel like a new person. Allen does not seem to be the sort of person who would deliberately make up a story of this type. He says he has always had an interest in unknown phenomena, but prefers to work on automobile engines in his spare time rather than chase lights in the sky. back sunday, we were playing bingo & right away she called us & said "Mom, this has started". We ' didn't know what to expect ••• we thought it was going to be a lot worse than what was there ..••

Why did you think it was going to be worse? .Q.:.!_: Well, we had heard that it was 7 times stronger when it would come back. T.R. had started crying again because K.S. had told her that.

It was back in July? Yes, when it was falling all 12 days in a row, or nights in a row. I said to W.M, "My God it just fell on the porch". T.R. came to the window, leaned down on her knees & said it looked like it came from a straight angle. There were spots right at the steps & it hit the mailbox & dripped right off the mailbox. I never thought that it was anyone from the family.

Has this person B.R. been present everytime this has happened? ~ Not for about the first 6 nights it happened. She was walking a dog & she had stopped & that's when Mom was out trying to wash off the porch. I'm sure people thought there was a knock-down drag-out fight out there with this blood around. While mom was out there washing it off, it was like it had just come from the roof & come down her back . Mom said "T. R. get the flashlight •.• it's coming out of the porch roof". We looked &

the presence of blood. A brief interview with the occupants of the residence was conducted. All occupants stated the blood mysteriously appeared from nowhere, & nobody was seen around the residence who may have been responsible for throwing the blood, or placing the blood on the residence. on 9/9/88 this writer & Det.H.P. returned to the residence after being informed that the blood appeared at it's worst. Photos &: blood samples were taken from both the front & back porch. The blood samples were taken to the Crime laboratory for further testing. The blood stopped falling after this date. No further action taken. To date, no explanation is available for the appearance of the blood on this residence. Reporting Officer: R.J. CONCWSION The Fortean Research Center has received a copy of the lab report done by a forensic chemist for the police department. Submitted to the chemist was the following: Item 11 Piece of gauze with apparent blood labeled "front". Item t2 Piece of gauze with apparent blood labeled "back". Item f3 Glass vial containing apparent liquid blood. Results Of Examination: Items 1 & 2: The stains were identified as being human blood. The H substance was detected in these stains utilizing the AbsorbtionElution Method. However, this result could not be confirmed by reverse typing (Lattes Method) • Item 3 : The liqUid blood was identified as being human. The A antigen & H substance was detected in the liquid blood using the slide method. The sample was too lyzed to utilize reverse typing for confirmation.

The Fortean Research Center called Det. H.P, the primary officer involved in this case, on 1/28/89 as we went to print with this Journal. He told the Center that an individual who was a medical doctor (name not known by the F.R.C.) had made contact With the family involved in this case &: had agreed to perform some sort of an exorcism in the families home. This was done last fall. Well, this particular doctor lives in a two story house, with his office on the first floor & his residence on the second floor. The doctor had been out on an errand or call around last Christmas and upon returning home had found blood on an outside door on the second floor. Apparently there is an outside staircase to this door. The police detective speculated that if an injured party had not found the doctor in his office & had climbed the stairway in the hopes of finding him at home, the injured person would have left traces of blood on the railing, staircase, & stoop or landing. None was found. A sample was taken & is being analyzed now. I got the impression that this officer feels the 2 cases are connected. Well, what about some theories? L.A's deceased ex-husband was born with a veil over his face. In some occult circles this suggests that this person will have extranormal abilities or powers. This man apparently died just before the blood began falling. So, a man who could make a cut or scrap stop bleeding while he lived ••• stop nose bleeds .. . could there be a connection? He could stop bleeding while he lived ••• he died & blood began to fall. Or should we put more weight on the connection with T.R. & K.S? K.S.introduced an element of black magic in this story that can't be overlooked. Can a group of people stare out a window at someone walking down the street and make that person fall by the focused gaze of the group~ or how about when K.S. asked T.R. if there was a problem at her

were on Americas best seller lists. Both books dealt exclusively with UFO abduction reports. TV and radio talk shows nationwide were interviewing people claiming to have been clinically examined, probed and sexually violated by creatures from other galaxies. Some, as in the case of Kathie Davis, even being artificially impregnated by the alien captors. Philip J. Klass, author and world's leading skeptical authority of Unidentified Flying Objects, presents what he refers to as the "truth" behind the abduction experience. Mr. Klass firmly believes the public has been "hoodwinked and brainwashed" by the largely pro-UFO media hype. UFO Abductions-A Dangerous Game is his latest contribution in print presenting information pertaininq to the more popular abduction reports. Information which was either overlooked, iqnored or simply not reported in the popular press. Author Klass touches on various aspects of the abduction scenario such as the use of hypnosis when ' seeking information ·about an . alleged incident, including the danger of unconscious contamination by poorly trained or amateur hypnotists. The writing style is very straightforward and the 222 pages can be quickly read. An individual who staunchly believes in the UFO abduction reports without question will not find Mr. Klass' book enjoyable, if he or she reads it at all. However UFO Abductions-A Dangerous Game ' deserves to be read by everyone who honestly tries to look at both sides of any claim dealing with UFO's. I recommend this book. reviewed by Dale Bacon Editor, Journal of the Fortean Research Center

We are all volunteers donatinq our time, mostly out of love. It can sometimes be overwhelminq. As the center qrows so does the workload. ' As to the specifics of our current setup, the system we are usinq is a TRS 1000, with compatibility to both types of disks. The proqram being used is the DeskMate II. For this issue we have obtained the use of a Hewett-Packard LaserJet printer. Anyone who knows the price of computer equipment knows that this type of printer retails for thousands of dollars. Many dollars more than a non-profit orqanization is likely to have. As the Center is based in Nebraska, we would like to keep as much of the actual work done on a local level as we can. I do not say this out of Nebraska-based eqoic pride (Go Biq Red), but rather because it is easier to drive across town to check on a print error than it is to mail the disks across the country.

But a few years back farmers and ranchers began to report that they were finding carcasses of their livestock that were . only to be found dead and mutilated the next morning. These factors (and more) suggested to the livestockowner that something out-of-theordinary had occurred. Farm dogs would be skittish and would refuse to approach mutilated carcasses. Each act or incident of mutilation leaves us with decidedly solid evidence in the form of a livestock carcass. We have amassed cons1derable information about similar events in other countries. 1973 was also the year of the last big or generallyrecognized UFO flap. The difference between the two would be obvious. As many readers will recall. There are enough differences. and in a manner incons1stent with that practiced by predators and scavengers. predators would feed upon a mutilated animal.

They know that. The speculation has been that there is "something" about such carcasses that "lower" animals can detect but humans cannot.

But if the animals are taken and mutilated elsewhere.the "pinking shears" effect (see photos in Donovan and Wolverton's MYSTERY STALKS THE PRAIRIE). One of the most consistent features of the mutilation phenomenon is the lack of blood or bleeding from the wounds . microscopic examination of hide from a mutilated calf revealed findings of the greatest potential importance. All this has fueled speculation that the mutilators are using lasers. Some incisions may be smooth yet uneven. And in a case in Colorado.even in animals mutilated before or shortly after death. On some occasions. The separation occurred between the cells . an evenly serrated edge is noted . In Johnson county. The meat which humans would consume is almost always left untouched . We may have knowledge of 5 per cent of the true total or 95 per cent (though the real figure likely lies somewhere in between). although one will hear estimates elsewhere of 2 to 3 times that number. however. There are reports of carcasses not deteriorating properly when left out in warm weather . since so many go unreported. Mass Hysteria? Were these farmers and ranchers caught up in an epidemic of mass hysteria or "collective delusion"? There are those who would suggest that these livestock people only imagined that there was anything unusual about these events. We do not know how many mutilations have occurred. regardless how many we find or where we find them there appears to be nothing we can do about it. yet when investigators cut into other areas of the carcass. Sometimes there will be a small amount of blood. Many of the most graphic mutilations feature amazingly smooth incisions where parts are removed . There is some evidence to support that contention. It might be that the mutilators don't concern themselves with where they leave the results of their hand~work.a tragic waste of prime beef.as with a knife -would cut through the cells at random.no cell was destroyed . others. On some cuts there is the appearance of searing or burnin9.that is. There is also a peculiar reaction on the part of other animals when confronted with a mutilated carcass. Some remains seem to deteriorate rapidly. To realize its potential as revelatory evidence. why bring them back? Why not drop the carcass in some remote canyon or arroyo or otherwise dispose of the rema~ns? It may not necessarily be that the mutilated carcasses fare purposely placed. There is no attempt to conceal mutilated carcasses. however.sometimes without even cutting hair. as though exhibiting hesitation cut-marks. a conservative estimate for the number of mutilations since (and including) 1973 (once hoaxes and misinterpretations are eliminated) would be 5.

I hope I have expressed those views correctly from the kind people involved. What we are looking at is not circumstantial. Alien involvement using the parts for sustenance? Or genetic engineering? Did you know a cows DNA is similar to humans? 15 So we need to ask ourselves: What degree of evidence is it going to take to prove to us that something strange is going on? Remember as Ron Bartels said to roe. . but there are very firm and stable cases all across the country with a great collection of evidence piling up in file cabinets. I feel that they love the attention surrounding their activities. But what do I know? I do not have the same tastes as a coyote ! It does not make sense that so much of the cow went untouched by the coyotes. it is real. they don ' t need to steal from the people. It seems to me that if the coyotes who were feeding on this animal went to the trouble of tearing the hide off the underbelly. Why would they just pick at the hind end of a perfectly edible and succulent animal? I know of no coyotes who have the surgical skills to remove 18 inches of windpipe through a 6 inch slit! This incident does have a few questions about how it happened and contradictory views. especially at this time of year when the weather is cold and food is scarce. But when you look at a "classic" mutilation you can tell they have been tampered with.================== For tean Research Journal naturally. because an answer is attainable. We are ~rateful for his cooperation in help1ng the Fortean Research Center by supplying us with these photographs and information on this case. Psycho farm boys? I doubt it! Random government testing? No! The government has enough test farms of its own. "Things do happen!" The following photographs are printed here by permission. (as compared with classic mutilat i ons) but I have seen pictures and read comments by Linda Moulton Howe (An Alien Harvest) and there is a big difference. It steals life from livestock and income from farmers to this day! So who is doing it? Satanic cults? No! They always leave the ir mark behind. The photographs seen in this article were all taken by Ron. Although I do not have much experience in what a cow looks like after coyotes have had their way with it. they should have devoured the soft abdomen as well. Now is the time to keep an open mind and ask questions.
