Dear Mr. RIlnkow:
15 August 1965
,
Thank you for your letter of 26 regarding
your quostions concerning unidentified flying objects.
I have not received a copy of the book, "The
UFO Evidence , " and so cannot give you any opinion on
1<.
If it were desirable to hold congressional
hearings on the question of unidentified flying
objects , 1 would certainly agree that they should
be open to the public.

Dear Senator Kennedy:
RANKOW
NEW VOU: I, 1'1 Y

a.... '"' _
'lII'l!I[S -:;':
First , I would like to offer belated congratulations
to you for your eleet ion t o the Sena t e . I am very pleased to
have you represent me . I intentionally waited to write you
sinee I didn't want the important topl e of thi5 letter to be
lost in the shuffle of your getting settled In a new offIce.
For many years now, I have been aware of the phenoaena
ealled UFOs . You no doubt have some knowledge of the subject
and of tbe stigma of ridieule wbieh is subjected upon those
who have reported seeing one. At first, I too was inclined to
reject this "wild" idea . However , upon eloser examination I
discovered that hundreds of our most rel iable and respected
citizens have reported seeing these objects, and many more
who haven't seen them believe them to be of extraterrestial
Origt n . I eventually aware of a private, non-profit
organization called NICAP. (Natlonal Investigations Committee
on Aerial Phenomena ) Thi s gr oup has been investigating these
sightings , gathering the facts with documented evidence, and
through their bi-mont bl y publ i cation, making them known to
the public .
After a se ven year study al l the evidence thus &atbered
has in a f acinating report pages) and then
distributed t o a l l members of Congress and the 5enate. I
don't know if you have seen a copy . If you haven't, I would
like t o have one sent to you. I t would be well worth your
t i me to read i t. If by chance you have read it, I would like
t o know your reac t ion to !t .

I am well aware of the Air Fo?ce policy debunking and
e:lplaining a .... ay sightifliS . This secrecy policy 1s a grave
mistake . The facts must be made Known, to this end I urge
open Congrestional hear i ngs. My feel ings are well stated by
Dr . Charles P. Olivier (President of t he Ameriean Meteor
Society) . nIn serving as a NICAP Board Member, my only purpose
Is to help in forcing further scientific investigation. UFOs
nave not been fully studied SCientifical ly due to suppreSSion
of pertinent data and subJecting reports of trained and
reputable people to ridicule . It is possible UFOs might event-
ually have serious effects upon our planet and its inhabitants,
either for good or ill. I have no per sonal theory to advance
or refute . In view of the importance of the subject, no matter
what the Dutcome, I would be glad to see a very full inquiry

DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE
WASHI NOT_
MAR 16 1965
Dear Senator Kennedy:
This is in response to your inquiry in of
Private First Class Gary E. Stemm concerning unidentified
flying objects (UFO) .
The investigation of UFOs reported 1n the skies over
the United States is the responsibility of the Air Force.
The name of this unc lllssified project is Blue Book . A vital
Dart of the is the release of information to the public.
There is no t ruth to the allegation that the Air For ce
withholds or censors any infonnation on UFOs, The results of
all Air Force investiga tions have always been made available
to bona fide news repl'esentatives and scientific researchers.
Press releases are issued as warranteu, and an annual report
on the oroject is available to the public,
In 16 years of investigating over 9,000 report s of UFOs,
the evidence has proved beyond reasonable doubt that all re _
ported aerial phenomena. have been objects either created and
sent aloft by man, generated by atmospheric conditions, or
caused by celestial bodies or the residue or meteoric activity.
The Air Forcc wi ll continue to invcstigate all reports
of uousual aerial phenomena over the United States, The
evaluations and conclusions reached by the Air force wi ll be
released to the public.
,
The former Cha inman of the Honse Armed Services Commit tee,
Mr. Carl Vi nson, as recent as September of 1964, indicated his

satisfaction with the conduct of the UFO program by the Air
Force and stated that there i8 no need for Congressional
hearings on this subject.
Your interest in Air Force matters i s appreciated.
Sincerely.

Senator Robert Kennedy
Washington 25, D, C.
Dear Senator Kennedy ;
'HW YOlK I, N Y
March 12, 1965
Thank you for your reply to Illy letter regarding UFOs. You
stated tnat, "frca the evidence available to date, I do not
believe that UFO phenomena are caused by venicles of extra-
terrestrial or1gin . " with your this should read
"from the evidence avaiable to date,--to my knOWledge", When
you speak of evidence, you can't 19nore the 7 year study puhllsb.ed.
in book form called, "The UFO Evidence" .
Regard-ina this book. Senator Harrison williams Jr. of N.J.
said, "The UFO Evidence Report 1s indeed an 1JRpresslve docllIIIent
and should be given the most careful consideration," The Chicago
Daily News service sald , "The report is a rather remarkable
document." And, Senator Paul. H. DolJilas of Ill. said , "I alii
encourage4 to see the concentrated efforts of NICA? to have all
of the facts about UFOs brOUJj;ht out to the public. I viII certainly
offer my contributIon of and effort to get to the bottom
of these reports . "
I will not vaste this space to aqy of the
many, many endorsements of thIs extremely veIl documented book.
Suffice to say that it is so regarded and deemed so
be vorthy of your attention.
:t book---and
interest you. Tne vast

Your statement that not enough is
knovn------- to of the phenomena",
is not Quite accurate . Many \lho have acquainted them-
selves with the facts UFO Evidence" have
stated their beliefs the eItraterrestrlal theory, and III
scientists agree that the facts should be made public and not
suppressed by the Air Force.
Many people, pilots, have stopped reporting
these sightlngs , for fear of the public ridicule which the Air
Force has subjected these individuals to 1n the past. Certainly

thIs is a very unscientifIc attItude, aDd not a policy designed
to find out the .ost about these objects . In an open society
suCh a s we bave, unnecessary censorship of facts is repU8nant,
ana alien to our way of life.
I urge you to us. your office to hel p gain open Hearings
on this subject . It is only through such open hearings that the
censorship lid will be removed. In the meantime, I would request
that you acquaInt yourself with the facts in nThe UFO Evidence.n
A copy waS s ent to each Congress=an and Senator. If you do not
have your copy, please let IDe know. I will see that one i s
delIvered to you.
I would appreciate you reply regarding "The UFO Evidence"
and Open Congressional Hearings.

I am writing to you in asking your endorssment and support
of public Congress ional hearings concerning ths eubjsct of Unicsnti fi ed
Flying Objects , UFO 'S, more commonly known aO Flying Saucera. It 1s
my hope tnet you will join with myself and many ott.ars in
the field in cnding the policy of confusi on and daception that the
Uni ted States Air Force has rollowed over the past 18 years . Join with
for example Cong o J ohn \/. McCormack ..men he said, -I fsool the Air
Force has not been giving out all the information it has on the
Unidenti fied Flying Objects . You can 't disregard so unimpeaohabl e
sources ." Or Senator Thomas J. Dodd said, "UFO 's heve never been
accurntely explained. We don't have all the facta and certainly the
Senate committee ehould have all the facts.- Please support these and

UNITED STATES SENATE
Dear Miea Hehir ,
Thank you for your letter ot June 9.
I wrote Senator Kennedy a Berious letter
about unidentified flying" objeote and Air
Force censorehip of UFO reports .
I am planning to wr1 te Senator Kennedy
quite trequently on the subject, as there
are more unusual evente occurring every month.
I am a member ot the National Investigations
CO!nll\ittee on Aerial Pheno.ena (rIICAJ», which
is the best known Civilian inveetie:ative organ_
ization.
We recently fJUblnitted a 186 P88e, 200,000
word; illustrated report to Congrese. It ie
full ot dooumented evidence ot unwarranted AP
fJUppreaion of UFO reports (The latest occurence
appears to be intimidation of witneases to UFO
8ighting"s) •
It you wish, you may obtain this report tor
Senetor Kennedy by writing NICAF atl 1536 Con-
necticut Avenue , N. W., Washington , D.C. 20036.
This repprt is entitled the "UFO and
I know it will interest him.
I hope you can locate my letter . When you do ,
pleaee pR8. it on to Senator Kennedy, Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Senator Robert F. Kennedy
United States Senate
Waehin['1;on , D. C.
Dear 14r. Kennedy.
Robert E. Barrow
4167 Cleveland Rd ,
Syracuse. lIew York 13215
This letter 1a a serious one , baaed on documented fact. I realize
that the subject which I writing about 1s one that haa long had
controversy and aleo complete ridicule aurrounding it. But because
of the fncta which have been realized by many in only the laet few
year s , this subject 1s developing a degree of respect.
The aubject to which I am referring 1s unidentified flying
-- - UFO' S---or better known as "flying .saucers ."
I Il1Il tryin8 to repreeant , in the beet way I can, a serious inves -
tigating organization which has its main offices 1n Washington,
It 1s the National Inv8etlgationa Committee on Aerial Phenomena
(NICAP) which haa been operating since 1956, with around 5000 membe
ere in all fifty states and thirty countries. NlOAP has re-
cently complete' a six year etudy of UFO S lind has published its
re$Ults in a 186 page , 200 , 000 word, illustrated document entitled
"THE UFO EVIDENCE REPORT. " This document containS proof that our
own Air Force has been keep1.ng 1mport8Jlt UFO sighUnga from the
Amsric8Jl people . NICAP haa been promised support by ma.ny Congress-
men and Senators . If you havs not obtained a copy of this doeument ,
you _y write to ifICAP at 1536 Connecticut Avenue, N. 'If . , I'fWlhing_
ton, D. C. 200}6 , or etop at our office , which is open to the
In order to give you more information about NICAP. I will list a
few !lain points:
1 . NICAP 18 a
Qwo Board
military
tronomy,
2. We have

on
space , a"..
reports from mili-
tower operators, radar
observers, including
our direc. or, Major Don-
C;:;,our director. Believe it
proves sufficiently that
speeds surpass any mach-
cenoorship,
UFO chases
4 these documented facts are now available in MTHE
" a1eo the NICAP Board conclusion that the
have kept from Ccngress and the public. Dan-
gers from the secrecy are growing , InC1lJT)lhG T:l RISK OF
ACCIDENTAL WAR PROM MISTAKInG UFO' S I'D!'! A S!':CH::<r SOVIET
AtTACK .

X
he rrrCAP report haa brought increased Ccnez-eapional
for UFO seorecy hearings.
:,;.reaChed a point where it i8 threatening
.ada reports , to keep quiet .
a r suggest that you read Air Porce Regulation
Is a i nnocent dooument but the worda "between the
to apeak, the onse which point the way to the facts.
Obviously I cannot include in this letter the incidents which bave
enraged myself and other NICAP members . You will find a few of theBe
incidents in the Januaryj 1965 edition of TRUE magazine. Our Direotor ,
Major Xeyhoe {USMC, ret . baa written an excellent article which 18
not intended to tool anyone .
Of course, this 1e a subject which was formerly associated with
crackpots . I agree that th.re are the few in this tield.who are cap-
italizing on this many of them are leaVing NICAP open
for ridicule by using it ae a springboard , untortunatly. I would not
be invol Ted with this organization or field if I wasn' t absolutely
positive that something i8 goin8 on under the noees of eVery person in
the U. S. A.
If you wish, you may a.ak the Air Fores questions about tbis subject.
NlCAP members can disprove any fal l acy that they might give you. I can
show you a case where the Air Force gave falss information to one in-
quiring Senator---Kr . H&.rl7 F. ByTd, a lIIelllber of the Senate Armed Ser-
vices CO!JlJli ttee. Thia occurred in April , 1961. Recent UFO sightinge
have put the AF on the spot end they have contradicted them selves a _
gain end again. Plea.ae notify of the answers to your questions if you
talk to en AF spokesmen.
I would appreciate knowing your opinion on this subject and also if
you will pve NICAP your support in strivina for public hearinga on
this subjsct .
I will be happy to show you our "UFO EVIDmCE REPORT" if you haven ' t
sent for one end also other material on UFO Censorship, Air Porce con-
tradictions , silencing of reputable witnesses etc. at any time that you
are in the Syraouse area. r am sure that this letter has heightened
your interest somewhat .
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearin8 from you as :to
your opinion end possibility of support .

Associate member , NICAP

Dear Hr . Kennedy,
Robert E. Barrow
4167 Cleveland Rd.
Syracuse , l!ew York 13215
I have received your July 15 letter concerning the unidenti -
fied flying object phenomena, for which I you.
You stated that , from the evidence available to date , you do
not believe that UFO phenomena are caused by vehicles of ex-
traterrestrial origin.
The truth is , that there is not enough evidence made
by the U. S. Air Force . The Air Force is censoring all im-
portant UFO infonnation. I know that is an old st.cry, but the
organization of which I am a member. the National lnvestip:ations
Conrnittee on Aerial Phenomena (NlCAP) , han collected a r,reat
deal of evidence proving Air Force censorship . Late in 1964,
NICAP compiled a 166- page , 200 , 000 word, illustrated report ,
which was submitted to CollEtl'Elss ''' UFO F.VIm:tlCE") . I am happy
to report that the doc\1alent , which contains lIlany authenticated
sightings , has brought response from many Congressmen and Sen-
ators . The overall response is one of surprise, and moat of the
Congressmen have their support in UFO
Allow me to site a very recent example of Air Force cover-ups .
Vice the Air of a
main
with
ter on to
true J The
81 Inquiry Division was all aightinga kad been
But, at this very same time , the Air Force had released ita an-
nual Project Bluebook report , which stated tr.at 663 sirhtinga
are still unidentified ! To mislead the Vicp President un-
11iae .
I nave a eopy of an .Ur Force document whicr 1:<\S recently been
classified. This dOCUDent , Air Force ;{erulatiort 200-2, i3 the
of'icial orner for "'eporting UFO aiehtinea. ',fhy is thia docu-
ment classified? Because l'lCAP. in a recent of its "UP(}
Investif,ator;' ai ted the contradictiona betl'leen API{ 200-2 and of-
ficial Air Force censor ship denials ! I have checked my copy of
200-2 and have found that it does indeed contain these con-
./-'
tradictions .
NleAP has over 5000 rneml}ers in all 50 states Md 30 toreip;n
countrtts; It haa operated since 1956, carryina: on an honest
investigations into the UFO phenomena---and Air Force censor_
ship .
NleAP' s clear record has rained the trust of military men and
scientists allover the world . UFO reports are investigated by
trained wi th minds . !HCAP discards almost half

OD'"RTMENT OF THE " l R FORCE
W ..... ' .. GTON
Dear Senator Kennedy:
In your recent referral to the Department of
Defense you reque s ted a report in behalf of Mr. Charles J.
Quagl1ana relative to unidentified flying objects (UFO's ) .
The Air Force does not withhold or cunsor any in-
formation on UFO ' s . The investiga tions have always been
made available to bona fide news representatives and
scientific researchers. Press re l eases are issued as
warranted , and an annual report on the project is avail-
able to the public . A copy of this report is attached
for your information.
In 18 years of investigat i ng over 9,000 reports
of UFO ' s , the evidence has proved almost conclusively
that reported aerial phenomena have been objects either
created and sent a l oft by man, gene rated by atmospheric
conditions, or caused by celestial bodies or the residue
of meteoric activi t y.
The Air Force has lOSt one air craft and pilot in
,
connection with a UFO incident . Captain Mantell .... as
asked to identify a UFO while on an aircraft ferrying
mission in 1952 over Godman Fie l d in Kentucky. Because
his aircraft ~ ' a s not outfitted ~ ' i t h the necessary oxygen
equipment for a high altitude flight, Caputo Mantell
died of oxygen starvation while attempting to identify
the object , and his aircraft consequently crashed. A
copy of the Air For ce evaluation' of this case is also
attached for your further inforlJfltion.
incident which is often mistakenly idcnti.
UFO case involved an F· 89 aircraft ",hich was
to intercept an unidentified aircraft which
~ a ¥ successfully accomplished and identified as a Dakota
(Canadian C· 47). It is presumed by the Air Force that
the pilot suffered vertigo "'hile returning to his base
and crashed into Lake Michigan. This case 1s carried
in Air Force aircraft accident records (see attached
resume) .
We are pleased to be of service in providing you
this report.

Dear Senator Kennedy :
__ ,,y .. ? .......... l
The enclosed summary of the sighting of an Unident ified
Flying Object in your State is forwarded t o you as
part of our program to disseminate useful informa t ion on
this subject .
We hope this information will be helpful to you, "nd will be
glad to make our complete file on this c"se avai la ble
to you or a member of your staff . Your comments will be
appreciated.
Several hundred NICAP personnel , in investigative units
throughout the country, interview witnesses f irst-hand and
investigate all aspects of a UFO sighting , Qualified
specialists in photography, aviation , physics, astronomy
"nd other technical f iel ds ass i st us with analyses and
evaluations .
It is our position that the accumulated evidence over-
'Nhelmingly establishes the. reality of UFO's. In order
to fac i litate a scientific investigat ion of this evidence,
NICAP has a four - phase program: Investig"tion of reports;
establishment of convent i onal e xplanations where possible
and ana l ysis of the evi dence whe re conventional explanations
fail ; dissemination of i nf ormati on to Congress and to the
general public ; and cont i nuing evaluation of the "ccumul"ted
solid evidence .
When a UFO sighting has a conventiona ! explanation , our
investiga t ors determine this . If any.'wi dely-publicized
report in your State prove s to have such an explanation ,
we wi l l infor m you , in case you receive inquiries from your
const i tuents . I f you have any questions about UFO reports
in your St a t e , we shall be gl ad to attempt to answer
them.
Sincerely yours ,

SOptBllber 13. 1966
Dear M.r. Xonl ey I
Thank you for your letter
on " unidentifi ed flying objects".
Many r oputable scientists agree with
your statement that thox:e must be othe r being8,
1n the universe. Dr. Barlow Shapley. for one.
has stated thIlIt there iIIJ II hioj!. probabilit y
t hat there is other life in the univer .. .
'l'Q believe tlUlt there is other life in
the universe ia not. however, to belie ve that
"uro's" a:a::e I118nned vehicles. One explanation
of th!" phencmenon connect. the 11<#'1t_ that
are seen with the 9a880U8 tail. of comet. s. A
careful lu\alysia of Ilightin<;Ja to date has not
given us tiny indication that "UI'O'." a r e _nned.
I appreciate heilr1ng fraa you on Uli 8
matter. and I hope tou w111 ",rite again on
matte:re of IIlutual inter •• t.
Sincerely •

Dear Senator Kennedy:
This is in reply to your inqui r y in behalf of Hr.
Raymond G. Konley regarding unidentified flying objects
(UFOs) .
Literature about UFOs written by Captain Ruppelt,
Major Keyhoe and Hr . Edwards is not reviewed, indorsed,
sponsored, or sanctioned in any way by the Air Force.
Air Force Regulation 200_2, Unident ified Flying
Objects (UFOs), (which has been superseded by Air Force
Regulation 80-17, Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs»
did nOt or der the " shooting down o f a UFO." It reads,
in part, as fol l ows : " The UFO Progr am provides for the
prompt reporting and rapid identification needed for
success ful ' identification, ' which is the second of the
four phases of air defense -_ detection, identificstion,
interception, and destruction. " Apparently the sentence
has been misconstrued and the word " destruction" has
been tl""anslated to " shoot down" UFOs. However, we point
out that the UFO program provides only fOl"" the " identifi -
catiOn" aspect of air defense.
Inclosed is a copy of the news r elease of October 7,
1966 regarding the selection o f the Universit y of
Colorado to conduct independent investigations of UFO
reports. The inves tigating team will be permitted to re-
lease and publish its findings .

Contrary to Hr. Kon ley's b e ~ e f , the Air
never attempted to cover up UFO i nfor mation.
existence of extraterrestrial life within the


Force has
The possible
univer8e
never been denied; however, the Air Force has no
tangible proof that there is extraterrestrial Ufe nor
do we have any proof that UFOs are interplanetary
space vehic les.
A letter Similar to this one is being sent to the
Honorable William Proxmire, United States Senate, in
respOnSe to his inquiry.
It is a pleasure to be of service in clarifying the
Air Force position regarding UFOs.
Sincerely,
JO!lll !. ll ,',,\y
Congre ssional Inqu\ry

of mass hysteria .
It during this period that stlff<!red the. gre'lt potfer blaCkout .

The enclosed material shou ld gi ve you a start. The UFO's
real, as you can see from the photostats of the newspaper
the Wanague UFO, seen there recently, in New Jersey.
, ~ :l
are certainly 4.,;.-
write-ups re "
The fact that I do, and have been, communicate with these
fact. 1 have the proof, 88 1 have said ... and need to see

UFO's, is a solid
you and talk wit h
You Ilre correct, in that not al l UFO' s are manned vehicles ... same Bre, some
are not, sir. The Wanaque UFO was a guided, u0UI8nned UFO . .. still containing
intel ligence, and weaponry.
0\
Now, air, let us get down to serious business. First let me give you my
references in this most unusual matter.
( 1) Mrs. (Or.) Louiaa Rhi ne, wife of the famous J . B. Rhine, parapaycho1!ists
a t Duke University. Address: P.O. Box 46, Rt. 3, Hillsboro, North Carolina.
(While at Duke Or. and Mrs. Rhine, and other acientists tested me for ESP
phenomena . .. and 1 was successful, while surrounded by them, in knocking a
pair of scissors clear off a table some 10-15 feet away, wirh ~ mind. You
certainly are welcome to check on thi s.)
(2) Mr. George Clark, Central Intelligence Agency, Wash. 25, D.C.
(3) Mr. Eastwood, I nventions, N.A.S.A., Wash., D.C.
The above three parties have been receiving proof for some time that I can
accomplish things not otherwise humanly possible . If you cannot get access
to etA and NASA files, you probabl y could get pertinent information from
Mrs. Rhine, Ny two children , ages 15 and 16, Rick and Lornie Owens, who live
.. t" In?l <:: Mv.-t" l .. ", Tno-l@wood. Callfornfa. "I" Shannon (my ex-wife) can
also give you a valuable inSight i nt o my work, for they were with me through
a gr eat par t of it until just recently. fE
,
As fantastic as it sounds, the situation is this: The UFO intelligences (I
call them Si ' s) wish to help the u.S. in its present pitiful plight; then
t he rest of the world. With their part i cular powers, which are not known
on earth, this can be done. To t ry and bring this about they have been
causing catastr ophes for the U.S. Government , and notifying me first so that
I could write to the above part i es beforehand and call the shot ... which 1
have been doing, accurately. If I coul d show you my complete files you
would understand mor e readily whst I am trying t o say in a few paragraphs .

2
The 51's advised me to
return, they will give
if you want it.
contact you ... and ask
you anything you wish
your help in the matter. In
in this life. The Presidency,
This i9 not a frivolous statement on my part ... many things the 51's have
told me to pass on to the U.S. Government, I have doubted ... but they have
happened, almost without exception. For instance, they told me to tell
George Clark that they would change the electro-.agnetic condition at the
"vL .. "" .-...... in the newspapers when it happened.
I thought this was ridiculous, and resisted mailing it to George ... but
finally did. Months later articles appeared in the newspaper that a UFO
appeared over the South Pole, in full sight nf scientific groups, bases,
there ... and hovered while pictures were tsken. The scientisrs reported
that while the UFO hovered, it affected all of their elec!ro-magnetic
equipment. (I can show you my letter to George .. and the newsclip, several
months later.)
Here, on the Jack McKinny "Night Talk Show" (Radio Station WCAU) I appeared
for four hours, on this subject. During the show I told the radio audience
that I had asked the Si's to appear over Philadelphia and hover, to prove
that they were real ... and that what I was saying was true. I also wrote
George Clark (letter is enclosed.) Well, five months later the UFO did
appear, not here, but nearby New Jersey ... did hover, as 1 requested ... nearly
all night ... thousands of people saw it ... and to complete the positive proof
so that there could be no argument about 'reflections' and the like, the
UFO, while people watched, shot a ray down onto the ice of Wanaque Reservoir
and burned a hole in the ice. (Newsclips enclosed.) Notice that in my
letter to George, before this happened, mentioned the ray.
One other thing the Si's want me to tell you ... the Kpnnedy family has 8
black shadow of ill-luck and mishap hanging over it. They will promise to
give the entire Kennedy family ... each and ev"y one, all relatives ... complete
protection from this evil force which at sOIDt time must have been directed
at the Kennedy's. '
What is needed now, Senator Kennedy ... is for you to come to Philadelphia
and take a room at a hotel ... give me a call at PO 3-4000, Ext. 224, during
week days, or wire me at home at night ... Ted Owens, 1114 Spruce St., #33,
Philadelphia. I can come over, bring my proof, and files, and tell you
much more clearly than in a letter ... what this is all about, and how it
affects the United States. Please, before you jump to the conclusion that
I might be a crank or crackpot ... check with Mrs. Rhine (but she will not
want the Duke Parapsych Lab involved with UFO phenomena) and my children;
and with CIA, if they will cooperate. They (CIA) wrote me that they were
reading and material with great interest, and not to stop (this
when I wrote them... n,
,- Sincerely, Ted (P K

Dear Senator Kennedy:
Let me speak quickly, and straight.
(fIA, NASA, President) know me as "p
what I have to say sounds like It.
My name
KHan."
i,
1
Owens; the U.S. Government
am not a crackpot. But
I am probably the only m&n in the U.S. who can prove absolutely that the
UfO's are real, and can tell what they arc up to. When I say proof, I
it. I have it.
Not only chat, but the U,S. is in great danger ..• and 1 can prove chat, too.
Not from Russia or China, etc.
The U.S, Gave. has known this for a year. I submitted my proof to them,
but only a great silence has developed.
ThiS is fact. I made five storms here in Philadelphia laS[ year, calling
each a week or two in advance ... XKK to the newspapers ... 50 it would
be on record. It was so accurate, that the Bulletin, which ia a staid,
conservative newspaper ... gave me a, big write-up as "The Rain Maker." But
then, when I went on the Jack McKinney "llllght Talk" show here, and explained
that the UFO's made the storms when I Signalled them .... a great wall of
silence clanged around me, as far as the newspapers were concerned.
Just over a week ago, January 18 , I varned George Clark of CiA , that the
UFO's were getting ready to give a "detDQnstration catastrophe" to the U.S.
Well, it just had it. ... a deep-freeze over all the U.S., with cold reeords
broken in dozens of cities. But this isn't eKe fir st time I have warned
the Government before an event actually hapP96ed; it's happened over a
timeS now.
Please try and see me, if at al l humanly possibl e. The U.S. Government is,
for some stupid, silly purpose, trying t o cover up that the UFO's are real
and are here for an intelligent purpose. I can give you the details.

DEPARTMENT 01' THE AIR FORC£
W ...... ' .. OTON
Dear Senator Kennedy:
We refer to your recent letter 1n behalr of Wayne I.
Philipson , regard1ng unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
The 1nveatigation of UFOs reported 1n the skies over
the United States 19 the responsibility of the All' Force,
Attached for your convenience 15 a current report on this
project , which has been designated "Bl ue Book."
In 18 years of investigating over 10, 000 reports of
UFOs, the eVidence has proved beyond reasonable doubt
that all reported aer1al phenomena have been object!! ei-
ther created and sent aloft by man, generated by atmos-
pheric condit1ons, or cauaed by celeat1al bodles or the
residue of meteoric activity.
There has never been any evidence that UFOs reported
to the Air Foree represented ext!"aterreatrlal vehicles.
No such object reported to the Air Force has given any
indicatIon of a threat to the Uhited States nor has any
UFO exhibited characteristics beyond the BCOpe of ourrent
technical or scientifI0 knowledge.
The Air Force w111 oontinue to investigate all reports
of unusual aerial phenomena over the United States, and
evaluations and conclUSions reached w111 be released to
the publ1c.
We welcome the opportunity to again be of serVice to
