It w a sannounced i n the previ ousnumberthat thi s publ i cati on

twice a year. This promisewas madeunderthe impression that other Australian

C ONTEN TS however,was prematureand unrealistic.Hence,we regretfullyinform our sub-
scribersand readersthat, as longas the AustralianFlyingSaucerReviewremains
an individualetfortof UFOIC,only one numberper yearcan be produced.

berievesthat: ,.Thereis
scientific evidencethat strangeobjects visit our planet. lt is lamentabrethat ttre
elvernmentshave drawn a
veil of secrecyover all this,,.

REAR-ADMIRAL DELMERS. FAHRNEY,U.S.N. (Ret.), says: ,,Retiablereports indicate


that there are objects
coming into our atmosphereat very high speeds. No aglncy in this country
or Russiais able to duplicateat
this. time the speedsand accelerationswhich radars and obiervers indicate
$rese nving iu;""t, are able to
achieve. There are signs that an intelligencedirects these objects1"""rr"
of the way they fly,,.
Dr' wALTER RIEDEL,former Germanrocket scientist, forwarded the
opinion that UFos are of extra-tenestial
origin: "uFos are not fantasy,they manoeuvrein a manner well known to
our pilots, involving accelerations
which could not be resistedby any human being".

vlGE-ADMIRAL R. H. HILLENKoETTER, former Director of u.s. central JntelligenceAgcncy,repeatedtyexpressed


his views that: "lt is imperativefor us to learn where UFos come from
ind ittlir purpose is on the

Dt' FRANK B. SALISBURY,Professorof Plant Physiology,GoloradoState
University,port collins, comments:
"l think the fact that they haven'tcontactedus does not mean that
they haven't visited us. But what if the
personswho said they.have..seen space-ships actually have? Other scientistsdismissthe sightingsas halluci-
nations. However,studyingthe reportsfor one partiiular night, we found that
those personshaving,hallucina-
tions' were having them on an exact arc of the earth's surfaie,'.

JA0QUESVALLEE,a noted U.S.astronomer, mathematicianand writer, after extensivestudy of UFo evidence,


concludes:"Thousandsof sightings,many reportedby personsof completeauthority and

Dr' W' HOwARD,of HarvardUniversity,said: "lntelligent beingsaboundin

Dr' HARLoWSHAPLEY,EmeritusProfessorof Astronomy,HarvardUniversity,


came to the conclusion:,,Theonly
point of speculationnow centreson the shapeand form of these
'distant neighbours'of'ours-whether they

Dr' J' ALLENHYNEK,Air ForceChief UFO consultant,a.lthough queryingthe existenceof flyingsaucers,specu-

MACKAY LANDING
Sunday night, 23rd May, 1965, had been like any other
Sunday nijnt at the lonely Retreat Hotel, on Eton Range, 40
miles irom Mackay, Queensland. Five minutes after midnight'
however, when thi licensee,Mr. J. W. Tilse was cleaning up
the bar and getting organised for the next day, things.began
to happen.
One of the patrons, John Burgess, just leaving, racd
back in and shouied: "Come and have a look at this". He
said that he saw a strange, luminous machine resting on tho
ground, 500 yards away.
Outside, Mr. Tilse, a former commercial pilot with 1l'500
flying hours, and present local Justice of the Peace, together
with-Mr. Eric Jud-in and Mr. Burgess, saw a black disc-like
object with banks of brilliant lights underneath,.hovering over
tree tops and about 200 feet above the ground.
The upper part was a flat, elongated top, gently con-vex
and appearing solid, metal-like' It measurgt nossibly one foot
in thickness and 25 to 30 feet across, The understructure,
approximately l5 feet high, consisted of several rows of
oiinge-yellowish lights numbering 10 in the top row and then
in dlcieasing ordir to six lights on the bottom. Three
extremely bright lights which pulsated, were situated-slightly
below and outside of the arrangement. The whole light com-
plex cast an illumination upon the area beneath witLintensity

pulsating light on eaah, were protruding. Some orange glow
emanated from the underbelly, but no exhaustscould be seen.
Now Mr. Tilse ran inside to call the Mackay Police. His
FR,OMSKY messagewas greetedwith howls of laughter-but they promised
WISPY THR,EADS to look into the matter. At the same time, while the police
were still on the phone, he also rang, on the party line, his
neighbour, a cattle rancher. The man took binoculars and

to be seen. Meanwhile, the craft began to retreat, moving backwards
on the same height and following the same path as it came.
A few minutes later, a second silvery globe was observed
travelling from the north, about half-way between the zenith It moved now slightly slower and appeared to halt for a

heard in eerie noise which prompted her to look towards lU',,\';'

While Mr. Lund and lvtr. J' Dew were returning, early

Argentina and Brazil had the special attention of
UFOS during the last two years. Large numbers of
mysterious objects w6r9 sighted in both countries. SomE
rgports speak of landings of what appear to bs vehicles
of some sort and of attempted contacts of their crews
with baffled and terrified citizens.
The wave of sightings began in Argentina on the
ni ght of 14th January, 1964. A ci gar-shaped, l umi nous
object appeared in the skies of Etahia Blanca (Buenos
Aires). The object had ftashing tights, traveiled at an
irregular speed from east to west, and stopped briefty
on several occasions. Although many people saw it, tha
object did not register on the radar screen of the
"C ommander E spora" ai r base. Local papers reportaJ
the remarkabl e phenomenon, but there w as no c ommont
from the authorities.
Then, on 8th February, at mi dni ght, a w el l -k now n
family at Balcaree (Buenos Aires) sighted a maneouvring,
luminous disc, which disappeared as mysteriously as ii
came.
On 7th March, in Gualeguaychu province of Entre
Rios, a group of neighbouring people observed about
half a dozen ftying objects formed in a semi_circle an1
radiating a strong light. Later, one of the objects accom.
panied a truck driver for more than five miles and
stopped when the driver slowed down to take a better
l ook.
A t daw n on 13th March, at Metan (S atta prov i nc e),
luminous objects appeared in the sky, moving in variouj
directions. Witnesses reported seeing five dlgcs, one of
which seemed bigger than the others, Two of th men
who reported the event were a railway employee, Ramon
Benito conzalez, and another named Solaliga.
On 22nd March, again at cualguaychu, slx more
saucers and a "mother ship" appeared. The ..mottrer
ship" radiated an intense red light, which gradualty
turned to violet. The objects remained motionless fo;
several mi nutes over publ i c S choot N o. 10, near the
Official Cotony of El protrero. They were round and
made no noise, and disappeared in a south-easterly
direction,
A few hours earlier that day, three people in
Ledesma (Jujuy province), Raul Rayat, Enrique Saavedra
and Hugo Salazar, saw a flying disc. They told the
P ress that, at 7,3O p,m., they saw a l arge, l u mi nous

On the ni ght of toth A pri l , peopl e i n La p as tora
(Buenos A,ires) observed a large, disc-shaped object
movi ng from north to south, A t 7 p.m. the same ni ght,
an unidentified object passed over the city of Mendoza
at great speed from south-west to south-east.
The next day, people in Echesortu, de Rosario
(Santa Fe province), saw in the south a round object,
surrounded by tights and travelling at great speed from
east to west. Two days later, on l3th A-oril, th terrified
people of Monteros (Tucoman province) saw an lllumi_
nated object above their town for nearly half an hour
before it vanished.

Then I would aend them to places where gaucera
are seen within 24 hours of the slghtings-not wegks
or months later. \A/e nesd very much to up-grado tlro
original data (the report8), someone aees a bright light
at night. No-one thinks to ask how bright it was in
comparison with stars or street lights, and so forth,
whether or not it changed in brightnea3, or how long lt
took to transit the sky if it moved acroes the heavena".
Trying to emphasise the need for such clarity in
report investigation, Dr, Hynek likened the situation to
making a radar contact with Venu3. Wlth the radar, ttr
return cho of the aignal was so faint it was lost in
general radio noiee3 of the radar system, Only by caro-
ful procoasing could this signal echo b picked out.
\/vith saucer reports, he oxplained that the .,noise'r
is the welter of sightings that can be attributed to air-
craft, balloons, planets, and the like. The ..signal" here
would b repre3ented by the genuine unknowns. lt is
these that he wants to isolate for detailed scientific
study.
"The whole point here", he said, ,,is that the noise
is terrific. Anyone who reports a bailoon sighting or
what have you as a UFO, is doing a possible disservice
to science, for other natural causes, noise reports just
foB the issue, This puts an unctue load on the Air Force
office charged with the responsibility of keeping track
officially of reportd sightings.
"Oh, I can underatand that the people who see
something like this often won't know it,s a balloon or
something familiar. But those to whom they report the
sighting - police, newspapers, mititary officers - these
should check the reports logically and inteiligentty, They

Contemplating our Solar System, we have all prot _
ably often wonderect if an intra-Mercurial or trana-ptuto-
nian planet oxists or existed, thus giving to our Sollr
System an additional tenth major planet.
The existence of any major body inside the orbit
of Mercury can, in accordance with all scientific achleve-
ments of today, bo denied, but the existence of . major
planet outside pluto's orbit is a possibility.
Proof of the existence of such a celestial body ig
at present not possible. Mathematlcat calculaflong and
indirect observations, however, show thet such e bocly,
if existing, woutd be approximately doubl the distrnce
of P l uto from the S un, w hi ch i s roughl y Z,O OO mi l l i on

Recently, Dr. Wiliam Pickering,Head of Jet Propulsion
Mo rs p h o to No . 11' - Mor s pio{ o No. 3. ) Laboratory,which controlledN.A.S.A.'sMariner lV operation,
and Dr. Clyde W. Tombaugh, discovererof Pluto and an
authority on Mars, have confirmed that the Mariner films
indeed show evidenceof the controversial"canals".
In his report to the American Association for the
Advancement of Science, Dr. Tombaugh said that on seven
of the 22 Mariner photos "canal" streaks and "oases" (un-
explained areas at intersectionsof the "canals") could be
seen, which coincirled with markings noted in telescopic
studiesand on many maps of Mars. This is in contrastto last
July's newspaper reports which denied any evidence of water
erosion. ocean basins or "canals",
I One photograph (No. ll) clearly shows what must be a
30-milE wide rift valley running east-north-eastacross the rim
of a large crater (in top right-hand corner of the photo).
Another (No. 3), shows a number of straightlines inter-
secting in an area which has been termed a "40-mile kidney-
shaped crater". If the dark patch which extends around the
top and right-hand side of this area is the shadow of a crater
wall. then this would indicate a source of illumination from
the south-west.However, severalother featureson the photo-
graph show a light source from the south-west. Hence, it
seems probable that what has been called a crater is an
"oasis" and the straight lines runing into this area are
"canals". The fact that these follow a geometricpattern would
seem to indicate that they are not mere cracksin the ground,
but artificial in origin.
It is not clear whether this information was known but
withheld in July, 1965, or if these markings have only
recently been found on the films.

1|,t.0,1.c. Since 1960, the UFOIC has been producing Australian
Flying Saucer F.eview,and nine numbers have been issued' In
spite of limited circulation and irregular issues, the publica-
tion has reached numerous countries and a variety of circles.
It was well received.
By its balanced views, it appealed to UFO enthusiasts
and sceptics. Wrth its rehable data, research findings and
progressivescientificspeculations, lt becamea sourceof infor-
nration for advanced UFO studentsas well as open-minded
scientrsts.Several authors pay credit to the Review under
refercncesand seek Iurther co-operation. Numerous requests
for back-copieswere received, so were new subscriptions. It
is felt with confidencethat the Review is a quality publication
makrng consrderablecontribution to the popularity of the
subjectand the study ot the UFO phenomenonitself.
Although all the credit goes to UFOIC for the collection
of ntaterial, its preparation,art-work and final printing-and
1r.lthe Victorian Flying Saucer ResearchSociety for the des-
patch ot the Review until I963-very little indeed was known
to the readers about the true brain behind this publication.
-lhis is Mr. Andrew P. Tomas, our former Editor.

introduced rnto any aspecr oi a UFO subject, the articles
appearing.in rhe publication radiated witI authoriry and

resulted.in carefully balanced material, thought provbking and
