Asslqtiment: America Man Who Saw first Saucers Thinks They're Living By INEZ ROBB BOISE, Idaho This is an up ami coming community, and the city father do P"t intend to be caught flat-footed flat-footed flat-footed if flying saucer derides derides to land here to visit Kenneth Arnold, the Boise flyer and engineer who spotted the first such phenomena in 1947. The airport commission and tha city council have approved a fee-scheduled fee-scheduled fee-scheduled for flying saucers-wishing saucers-wishing saucers-wishing to use tha Boise airport. Tho landing fee has heen fixed at $50 P?r saucer for non-scheduled non-scheduled non-scheduled flights and the fee must be paid in U.S. currancy. Interplanetary greenbacks will not be accepted. If the saucer radios in for a scheduled landing, all feea will ba waived. If tha saucer merely desires to hover over the field at an altitude of less than 100 feet, there will be standard fee of $10 for the first three minutes of hovering and $10 for each additional minute. "This is merely the city's usual forward looking looking action," says Mayor R. E. Edlefsen. Arnold, who set off the flying saucer uproar uproar five years ago when he reported the first flight of nine, will allow any saucer to land for free in his own private landing field on the outskirts outskirts of the city. But he does not expect any little green men two feet high to scramblp out of the saucers, if and when they land. He is convinced after devoting much time and $12,000 of his own money to private investigation, that the saucer is a living, thinking force from the stratosphere stratosphere or beyond. The solid citizen still lookg like thy football player he used to be. He is one of the least hysterical of psychotic, persons I have ever interviewed. He is, naturally, delighted at the announcement that U.S. radar screens have picked up formations of this mysterious phenomena. phenomena. He has become an informal clearing house for taurer news and maeazine reports from the four corners of the globe. It is a big mistake to believe that flying sau cers have been seen only over this continent, Arnold said. "They have been seen all over tha world, Including Russia, Africa, Korea and Northern Europe." Although Arnold is convinred that the saucers saucers are not a menacing or attacking; force he is not at all certain that aircraft hava not col. lided with them In recent yeai. No one has lived to tell the tale, but this would explain some otherwise inexplicable air disasters in the past five years. The Boise man believes the saucers are large, gelatinous masses that vaporlie when they hit the ground. This, too, might explain why the phenomenon seems able to change its density in flight, a peculiarity noted by a number of observers. observers. Arnold has several aviation inventions to his credit and is highly regarded in his home town. He is not only a most successful fire control engineer but is an acting deputy federal U.S. marshal, a member of the Idaho Search and Rescue Flyers and a flying deputy for the county aerial posse. It was while on a search mission in 1947 that he saw the first saucers and accidentally gave them the picturesque name that has stuck ever aince. At that time he said "they flew like a saucer saucer would if you skipped it nrross water." With Ray Palmer, he is the author of one of the first honks about the flying objects, a volume called "The Coming of the Saucers." To unbelievers and scoffers he simply tells the story of the pigeon that flew hend-on hend-on hend-on into a plate glass window. Limping home with feathers he-draggled, he-draggled, he-draggled, the pigeon told his companions companions of his terrible experience. "The air suddenly froie solid in front of me," he declared. The other pigeons looked at him in disbelief and sneeredi "Tell that to the sparrows,"
