The long ship and the saucers were seen for two minutes. The mother ehip
as nell as the emaller craft reversed their course ancl tiisappeared jl the
c louds .
Rev, l. BrownJ-ng statecl the tliscs "cane towartls the ship like flat-stones
skipping along water." thi-s is very signifi-cant because Kenneth Arnolcl cles-
cribia f,le of nlne flyi:rg saucere near Mt. Rainier, Ilashiagton j--n1947
i-n almost the same terms.

The clergyman and his wife nere reticer{t about releasl.g this sig}rting urr-
til they heard other local resj-dentsr reports. The Cj-vil lviatj-on Depsrtnent
Eeems to have taken this case seriously because of the backgrouncl of the two
principal obeervers antl the testinony cf locaL residents.

l[rs. Dorj-s Bransden of Cresey sald: 'rlt was a fantastic sight - like a lot
of littLe sbipe flocking arountl a bigger one."

The aviation euthorities stated. there were no planes in the area at the tine

It is a notable fect that the clergynan dicl not believe j-n the reallty of
flying saucers before his experience.
