EDITORIAL
At a recent public meeting, a ueteran Australian ufologist said that extra-
terrestrials, upon landing on earth, utill demonstrate to errant bumanity the lolly
ol contaminating earth's uater supply u.'ttb "that poison" lluoride, He utas prom-
inently reported in at least one national neuspaper.
Tbis ulologist uas, ol course, arguing irrationally.
The existence of extraterrestrials bas not been proued to tbe satisfaction ol
more tban a lraction ol tbis planet's inbabitants. Furtbermore, euen admitting
tbe existence ol life elsewhere, on uthat basis can it be assumed that the hypo-
thetical spaceman sbares our ufologist's strongly beld opinion on tbe uses of
I luoride ?
After all, spacemen may not euen baue teeth!
Tbis unfortunate case uiuidly demonstrates a menace tahicb bas beset ut'ology
from its earliest days: the person wbo is attracted to LIFO researcb not because
ol its intrinsic interest, but because be sees in the UFO's a uindication and a
justtfzcation ol bis ou,n preconceptions.
Certainly, the religious crank is tbe f<nemost example of this genus, but as
uith our fluoride-minded friend, tbere ane unlimited uariations to be lound.
The damage done to tbe UFO cause by its most leruent det'otees as a result
ol tbeir unualy and untbougbtlul utterances ts tncalculahle. Our subject is
slou'ly but surely gainfuq ground and tbe day must euentuully arriue when a size-
able proportion of populixtions in tbe u'estern uorld must accept at least the
possibility of uisilations by extralerrestrial s.
Tbe u;eird latiocinations of some ufologists can result only n tbe aduent ol

"I looked up and saw an object bright and shining, comingtowards me. It would havebeen
20 feet to 25 feet in diameterand was about 120 feet up in the air.
"It seemedto float down towards me. It resembleda big mushroomwith a stalk pointing
towardsthe earth.
"Then it spun throughan 180 degreesangle on its rrertical axis to take up the position in
which I photographed it.
ttThen it turned slowly throughanother180 degreeson its horizontalaxis, to bring the stalk
facing me.
"From an almost stationaryposition it shot off northwardsat terrific speed, acceleratingto
what seemedto be hundredsof miles an hour in seconds.
t'I ran and got a carpenterwho was working on the house. Secondsafter it took off we heard
a boom, similar to the sound jets make when going through the sound barrier."

setting out to explore his immediate environment in terms of established laws, the research rvorker
endeavouring to extend the frontiers of knowledge and the Ufologist postulating the transcendencyof
cosmogonal law. Let us here examine whether we can explain the phenomenonin terms o[ atmospheric
processes that are known basically, although we should make allowance for the possibility of dev-
iations within the limits of probability. We shall therefore not exclude from consideration a freakish
event but shali reject fallacious notions regarding any event.
Observationsand lmpressions.
(i) Soil samples: Mr George Pedley's report* of having observed at about 9 a.m. (Eastern Standard
Time) on the 19th January 1966, a UFO rising at great speed and with an ear-piercing,hissing noise,
from Horseshoe Lagoon on his neighbor's (Mr Albert Pennisi) cane-farm near Tully, is in itself no
unusual event. Forsimilar sightings and sound sensations have been reported over the years in U.S.A.,
Australia and elsewhere. On such occasions there were frequently reports of impressions left on the
soil or in grass but where investigations by experts were made on samples for traces of radioactivity,
they turned out to be negative or inconclusive.
(ii) The major "nest": Although in the Tully "nests" case, too, "testing of samples taken from
around them . . . failed to reveal anything of significance",** photographstaken by Mr Vignale
presumably on the day following the discovery of the major nest measuring30 feet in diameter, should
be regardedas valuable and unique documents. One of these photographsis reproducedbelow.
According to Mr Pedley's statement, the reeds "were without exception bent below water level,
dead and swirled around in a clockwise manner,as if they had been subjected to some terrific rotary
force, Only the reeds within the perimeter of the circle were dead . when I passed the hole the
previous evening it was smotheredin green grass-like reeds protruding up to three feet above the
surface. The water hole is from four to five feet deep."
For the discussion that follows below, it is reievant to also quote from a statement made by Mr Alf
Macdonald. He is a Stock Routes Inspector for Northern Queenslandwho dived (as did Mr Pennisi and
a member of the local Police) into the waterhole to check on the impression that t'some force has
sucked the roots up cleanly into the floating'nest' . . ,". Mr Macdonaldsaid: "There was no stubblc
under this circle. The roots were sucked up whole and the lagoon floor was smooth."
He has lived in the district since 1933 and ruled out the possibility gained on first impressionthat
reed eating grubs might have caused the phenomenon. ttThey cause water grasses to collapse," he is
reported to have said, "but the roots and remnants stay, like stubble, on the lagoon bed." In any
case, the grubs would have neededto compiete their work in one single night, according to Mr Pedley's
observations on the previous evening.
With the exception of the photograph,the above evidence is mainly based on impressions gained
by a few persons whose trustworthinessneed be in no doubt. The evidence is also incomplete,since
more could have been added and more could have been obtained, by thorough investigation in the first
instance. The evidence presented is also biased toward an enquiry into atmospheric processes as a
feasible explanation of the ttnests".

A:lE OF TI{E TULLY I\IESTS

Ni'AF PI\OTOOF DOWNDNAFT D'STRUCTION


TYPICAL TORNADO
Of f icialdo mha s awo rd . . . and agues s ! !
The author of ODDA suggested the possibility of the phenomenonhaving been associated with,
t'downdraugfuts", ttwilly williest'or water spouts that are known to occur in the area.
or the result of,
The University of Queensland is quoted as having stated that "the nests could have been the result of
severe turbulence, which normally accompanies line squalls and thunderstorms in Notth Queensland at
that time of year. Enclosed with ODDA were photogaphs giving examples of the type and growth of a
cloud formation occurring with a sevete "downdraught". The following statement was added relating to
these photogaphs: "This whirling mass of tropical air associated with thunderstorm activity, on
reaching the earth's surface, rnay dissipate and subside or persist giving rise to dust eddies, water
spouts etc., leaving telltale circular patterns on the ground. Should it occur ovei a swampy reed bed,
the effect would be to flatten the reeds with a circular pattern . . .".
A relevant question regarding whirlwinds in relation to the Tlrlly "nests".
Small atmosphericvortices featured by clockwise rotation and associated with strong "updraughts"
are indeed known to occur in summer in the vicinity of powerful downdraughts accompanying heavy
rain, hail and thunderstorms. On occasions they appear to have occurred without deterioration of
weather in the region where they have been observed.
lVe should then enquire into the possibility that one or several such "wet" or "dry" whirlwinds
had occurred in the Tully region, during the night from 18th - 19th January 1966. More specifically,
we must ask the following questions: What are the probabilities, given. the atmospheric conditions pre-
ceding the morning of 19th January, that (1) there occurred during the late evening of the 18th January
or thefollowingnight, oneor several vortices which were accompanied by sufficiently strong updraughts
to cause suction effects of the tequired very high intensity; (2) contact with the ground or vegetation
cover occurred for merely a few instants in any one place, since no damage to shrubs, trees or ground
outside perimeter of circle was noticed in the case of the MaSornest (see photo) and none has been re.
ported in the vicinity of the other nest discovered soon afterwards; (3) the force was capable of
dissicating grass reeds as they were swirled around so that they appeared "dead" by the time the
phenomenonwas discovered?
Vital Statistics.
(i) Frequencyof severelocal wind stormsin tropical Australia.
To answertheabovequestionwe shall considerthe researchin wind structureand damagepatterns
of violent tornadoesoccurringwith great frequencyin the U.S.A. and of the local severewind storms
occurringin Australia, with less severity but comparablefrequency.
The frequencyof occurrenceof these local storms,accordingto estimatesfrom many years'stat-
istics for theAusttalianregionis to be consideredfirst. To cite a few figures taken from a publication
by II'lrR.H. Clarke (1962): Fromall available observationsdatingback to 1920and upwardsto the end
of 1957, the frequencyof occurrenceof severelocal wind stormsper 10,000sq. miles in the coastal
belt of Queenslandwas 5.9 which is the thitd highest for the whole of Australia. The highestfreE
uencies were found in the coastal plains of N.S.W.and the westernhighlandsof Victoria.
(ii) Time of year and time of day.
The monthwith the highestfrequencyof the consideredstormsin tropical Australia is December,
with Januaryfollowing close behindit. The preferredtime of day is from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. (55%of all
observations)but there is a distinct secondarymaximumbetweenmidnightand 2 a.m.
(iii ) Accompanying weather.
The likelihood of windstotmsnot accompanied by rain, thunder,hail etc., in their vicinity can be
judged from the following figures: Out of 51 cases in tropical Australia for which reliable weatherin-
formationwas available, 5 caseswere not connectedwith bad weather.
(iv) Width of path.
Another important feature is the "width of path" of windstorms. We shall see later that the path
need not necessarily be verifiable as a continuous trail in the soil, grass etc., ot as a continuous
swath of damage to trees or structures. In Australia, of 89 wind storms where this information was
available, 13 storms had a width of path 60 feet or less, 11 stoms had from 60 to 120 feet and 65
storms had paths wider than 120 feet. The major Tully nest had a diameter of 30 feet and the other
nests were smaller.
(v) Length of path.
Of 49 cases that could be included in the statistics, 13 had path lengths half a mile ot less; 8 had
half to one mile; 23 had from one to ten miles while the remaining five storms had path lengths ex-
ceeding 10 miles. However, research in the U.S.A. has also established that one and the same storm -
t'cloud" in those cases
tornado funnel - may establish contact with the ground, intermittently or else
it may vary in intensity of rotary motion and associated vertical air flow while it moves along, so that
for this reason damage at the surface can be intermittent.
(vi) Wind speed and vertical motion.
The most important distinctive features of these local windstorms are the high wind speeds,
rotation and vertical motion. The air flow relative to the moving vortex is nearly in circles, an in-
draug[rt at the bottom being necessary to maintain the updraug]rt in the core. The velocity and direction
of the air motion as observed by a stationary observer accounts for the rotary motion, the indraught and
the movement of the storm. In the present case, only such ranges of windspeed are important as can be
feasibly connectedwithintense upward motion. A meteorologist with the U.S. Weather Bureau (Hoecker,
1%0) has reconstructed the distribution of horizontal (tangential) and of upward components of the air
flow in the famous, or rather infamous, Dallas tornado of 2nd April 1957, by tracing particles of debris
and cloud tag movements in scaled movies. The greatest measured wind speed was 170 m.p.h. in anti-
clockwise rotation, and the greatest upward speed was 150 m.p.h. These very high speeds occurred at
the heights from 100 to 200 ft. ab<i',egound. At, or very close to the surface and near the centre of the
storm, wind speeds were about 90 m.p.h. with upward motions from 20 to 30 m.p.h. Thus an idea of the
strength of the vertical upward force near the gound connected with severe local storms in Australia
may be obtained ftom the Table below, which lists the frequency of wind speeds in 62 cases. (Clarke,
1962)
Miles per hour 51-60 $-74 71-80 81-90 91-100 101-110 111-120 above 120
Numberof storms 13 18 13 2 12 0 3 1
(ln the Northern Hemisphere cyclonic rotation is anti-clockwise, in the Southern Hemisphere it is
clockwise.)
There are numerous but mostly unverified reports of small dams, ponds and large pools d water
having been subjected to a suction effect from a whirlwind passing directly over them, watet being
thrown in considerable heights into the air in fountainlike fashion. This phenomenonwas seen in the
wake of a tornado that struck Numurkah (Victoria) on September24th 1960.
A tornado which produced damage to sod and soil in pasture by suction, occurred near Marion,
Miss., U.S.A. at 8.40 p.m. C.S.T. Sth April 1964. For two days it had remained unreportedto the
regional Weather Bureau office. The two photographs shown here are reproduced ftom a btief note by
one of its staff (Gray, 1tb4). We quote here the following from this note: ". . . . the tomado reached
the surface for a total distance of about half a mile. The initial contact broke off a pine tree 18 inches
in diameter about 15 feet above gound . the tornado pulled the sod up and exerted such fotce
that huge cracks were forced open in the sod in an area about 1.0feet in diameter. These cracks were
all semi-circular in shape . the force of the small vortex ripped huge chunks of soil and gass
down to a depth of about 8 inches in an area 20 feet wide and 50 feet long. It appears that the soil
was pulled out down to clay depth which resisted the suction more than the topsoil. Huge chunks of
this soil were thrown in all directions around the hole for a distance of about 100 feet".
In regard to the sound phenomenonreported by I\4rPedley, this would not be difficult to explain in
terms of effects produced by a powerful whirlu'ind, since in actual fact, similar noise has been ex-
perienced by many persons who have been rather close to the lath of a destructive windstorm: "like
an approachingexpress train"; t'a noise like a chain saw"; ttlike a jet plane before taking offt'.
To date, no meteorological process is known which could account for the dead appearance of the
flattened reeds on the morning of the 19th January; for the sun had been up only a few hours and there
had been no searing winds with century temperatures that might have feasibly accomplished this re'
markable transformation of vegetation within the span of one night,or a few minutes,if what l\tlrPedley
saw was an atmospheric vortex.
THE METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS FOR VORTEX FORMATION
Were atmospheric conditions conducive to the formation of a severe local storm of the kind we
discussed above? To answer this question it was necessary to examine all available meteorological
observations and weather maps on the air flow in the lowest layers and upward to 20,000 ft., and on
horizontal and vertical distribution of temperature and humidity over Queensland during the 24 hours
preceding 9 a.m. on the 19th January.
The writer examined all the relevant Weather Bureau maps and data including vertical soundings
at Townsville. During the LSth January a cold front had moved up along the eastern seaboard of the
continent and approached the North Queensland coast. In his investigation, Clarke found that in the
northern tracts of Australia 60% of. severe local storms occurred q! a cold front and l0% ahead of a
cold front. However, according to his findings and those of others in the U.S.A., the rnere presence of
a cold front was not a sufficient condition for the formation of such storms. Othet, equally important
factors werethe circulation of the air at the 20,000 ft. level and thevertical distribution of temperature
and humidity of the air below that level which determine the stability of the air in upward motion at,
or ahead of, a cold front and through other lifting mechanisms. In the 24 hours preceding 9 a.m. on the
19th January, all these factors were highly unfavourable for the formation of local sevete storms.
It should be finally mentioned that on the morning of the 19th January, no tainfall in the preceding
24 hours was recorded northeast of a line connecting Rockhampton on the east coast with Normanton
on the Gulf coast. This, too, is indicative of the absence of weather patterns in the region concerned,
which might have been conducive to the formation of a local windstorm.
Fine weather was reported from all Bureau of Meteorology stations in the general region. However,
these stations and for that matter any inhabited localities are far apart, sufficiently so for a local wind
storm to slip thtough unnoticed.
CONCLUSION
Of the various pieces of evidence presented above, as many are in support of, as are in conflict
with, the hypothesis that the phenomenonwas caused by the action of a whirlwind. It is therefore not
justifiable to state that it could not be feasibly explained by such action. Nevertheless, there were
certain aspects which induce the writer 6ilf,F"rti"le to come down rather heavily on the other side,
i.e. to eliminate the atmospheric vortex hypothesis as untenable. These aspects are:
1. The dead appearanceof the swirled-around reeds within the perimeter of the "nest".
t'debris"
2. The absence of any kind of close outside the perimeter.
So far, no explanation of the phenomenon in question has been given. But this question might
still be asked: "How freakish can whirlwinds be?".

UFO "FLAP'' IN SOUTHEAST YICTORIA

From a letter by our member in tbat area, Mr. Dan Haylock

BAIRNSDALE-3rd May-Light as bright as ao arc light reported to North East of Bairnsdale at 3 a.m.

Similar reF)rts came ftom Paynesville and otlpr areas-dates not recorded by witnesses.

Other sightings of lights low over the town, just above telephone or electric light wires were re-
ported. Qr representative stated he expected more relrcrts at this time of year, as fog banks in
the area reflected neon signs, car headlights, etc. Utrfortuately, some of the reports which defied
veritication dealt with pulsating green lights about twenty feet above power lines.

Mrs. Martin of Bairnsdale was driying home alone about 1.20 a.m., when she saw a light about 100
feet up in the air. The car she was driving was an automatic Holden which did not appear to be
running properly. As the 'light' cune overhead, the car slowed down. Mrs. lllartin selected low
gear and pushed the acceleratc to the floor but barely made 12 mph all the way home. Next day
the car was checked and found to be trcrforming perfectly. The object appeared to be about 6 feet
in diameter and emitted light.
Apparently white the object was hovering near the car it affected the normal functioning of the
vehicle.

IIOTOR'ST'SEER'E EXPER'ENCE

ROADDEATHCAUSEDBY UFO?
A car ran off tbe Bendigo-St.Arnaud (Victoria) Road onTbutsday nigbt, the TtbApil,
killing its 19 year old driuer.
Police uent to tbe spot at tbe uteekend utith a local businessman ubo told tbem of a
strange thing tbat bappened to bim at tbe same place on tbe ltlonday after tbe t'atal accident.
Mr. Ronald Sulliuan, 38, builder, ol Maryborougb, Victoria, said: "Tbe beadligbts of my
car were suddenly diuerted to tbe rigbt lor no apparent reason - and bad I lolloued tbem I
uould baue rwz oll tbe straigbt stretcb of road.

"Just tben I sana a display ol gaseous ligbts in all tbe colours ol tbe spectrum in a near
by paddock. Tbe obiect rose about ten feet in the air. lt later disappeared.
"Tbe coloured gaseous lights seemed to be going tbrougb 2" to 3" diameter tubes wbicb
led into a brigbt phospborous looking ligbt on tbe ground Tbe ligbts tuere stretching up-
utards all tbe time until tbey disappeared alter leauing tbe tubite pbospborous looking ligbt
on the ground."
Mr. Sulliuan said be bad bis beadligbts cbecked on reacbing Wycbeprool and they utere
fotmd to be in perfect order.
ln a letter to the. V.n'.S.n.S., ltlr. .sulliuan said he later inspected tbe area utbere be bad
seen tbe UFO and lound a circular depression in tbe ground, approximately lour feet in
diameter and six incbes deep in a plougbed and barrotaed field.
Aspects ol Mr. Sulliuan's account are most extraordinary. In tbeory, it is considered
impossible to diuert
ligbt uaues in the utay described. Houtever, y.F.S.R.S. inuestigators
baue been as'sured that Ronald Sulliuan is a bighly respected citizen in tbe ltlaryborougb
area, and neitber tbe ac cutacy ol bis description, nor bis sincerity, are being doubted,

IAS/UAN'AN'NVEST'GA7'ON
CENIRE FORMED.
In Novemberof last vear a gap was filled in the circle of U.F,O. Groups in Australia. Tasmania,
long absent from the scene, got off to a good start with the formation of T.U.F.O,I.C, - Tasmanian
Unidentified Flying Objects Investigation Centre. At a preliminar]' meeting, held at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. J. Bigwood, thirty three persons attended. A brief outline of the aims of the Centre was pre-
sented by Mr. Robert Burge, who together with Mrs. Bigwood, his sister, was responsible for the form-
ation of the group. A second meeting was held a month later and the election of office bearerstook
place. Officers elected are as follows:

President Mr. I. Mclaren , Public Relations Officer Mr. T, Ling


Secretary Mr. R,A. Burge , Recordings and Photography Mr. J. Eastwood
Assistant Secretary Mrs. J. Bigwood , Librarian Mr. P. Lawler
Treasurer Mr. J. Bigwood , Committee-man Rev. L. Browning

The first major project of the Centre was a public Meeting held at the Y.M,C.A. Social Centre,
Hobart, at which a talk was presented by Mr, Colin Norris, Vice President of the Adelaide Society.
This meeting was quite successful, there being well over 200 people in attendance. Good coverage
was provided by the Press, Radio and Television. Since then, and with the aid of a few good sightings
in different parts of the State, there has been an increase in public attention toward U.F.O.,s. A total
of twenty three sighting reports (fifteen of them relating to a very good one in October of last year)
have been filed as reliable.
It is hoped that thc setting up of the Tasmanian Centre will produce a greater numberof these
re!'orts; there is still reluctance on the part of many people to openly associate themselves with the
U . F . O , mvste rv.
