Summary: Sales executive “John Gilbert” reported being abducted and subjected to “several startling medical, biological and sexual experiments” by aliens. His car was stopped at an undisclosed location and he was surrounded by a group of strange men about 3.5 meters tall with broad foreheads, elongated eyes and hawk-like noses. Their eyes disturbed him and as a result he did not look at them too closely, but he got the impression they had no pupils. There was a leader dressed in blue and they spoke amongst themselves in guttural tones. He became confused and faint and was dragged towards the ramp and into a craft, where he was revived and shown into a sort of control-room, then given an explanation of the craft by the “leader”, apparently by telepathy.

A man and a woman were out parked in an isolated area “sky watching” when they saw a group of red, green and white lights descend from the sky and land in a nearby gully. Moments later there was a bright flash of light and the man’s face began tingling. He then heard voices outside the car and there was a sudden knock on the car window. Outside they both saw a man holding a red light standing by the car. Using mental telepathy the strange figure asked the male witness several questions then told him to leave the car, the witness was then led off into the darkness. Several personal items were missing from the witness upon returning to the vehicle.

Location. Los Padres National Forest California
Date: March 1967
Time: late night
The main witness had been camping in a wooded area along with three friends. One night he suddenly awoke away from the campsite and out of his sleeping bag. He then noticed a bright light with orange and blue blinking lights in the sky. He woke up one of his friends and both watched the light shoot away at high speed. Later under hypnosis he was able to remember somehow being transported onboard an object by several humanoids (not described) that took him into a chamber with a glass canopy. An instrument was painfully inserted into his rectum and another apparatus collected semen samples.

Summary: 16-year old Linda Lilly woke up one night and saw a large figure towering over her bed. “It was a man,” she said. ” A big man. Very broad. I couldn’t see his faced very well but I could see that he was grinning at me.” Linda got up from bed with a terrible scream. She cried out there was a man in her room. “He walked around the bed and stood right over me”. Linda declared, “I screamed again and hid under the covers, when I looked again he was gone.” She then ran into her mother’s room. When asked for a full description of the man, Linda said she thought he had been wearing “a checkered shirt”. Around the same time, her mother, Doris Lilly began to receive strange phone calls at home. Each evening around 1700 her phone would ring, and when she answered she heard only a bizarre metallic voice speaking in an incomprehensible language. It was guttural and rapid. These calls came only when she was alone.

Summary: Maria Cristina Leguizamo said she was listening to the radio when a flying saucer appeared in her backyard. Communicating by telepathy, an “extremely handsome man, with green eyes and silver hair to his shoulders” invited her to take a ride in his craft. She was required to take off her shoes first. The humanoid told her that he came from “the Green Planet” and that “neither Russians nor Americans will ever arrive at the moon.” Also, a planet named “Arcobulos” exerts “an irresistible force on the planet Earth attracting it little by little toward the sun.”

Date: March 1 1967
Location: Near Eden New York
Time: 0130A
Summary: DeWitt Baldwin was raccoon hunting in a woods near Eden when he heard a noise like bees buzzing and flashed his flashlight on a gold colored, unlighted saucer shaped object that had landed on the ground. A sliding door opened and a man emerged dressed in a black, tight fitting suit and wearing a helmet with goggles. He asked the witness some questions, such as what he was doing there at that hour, where he had been born, and then took Baldwin’s gun, looked at it and handed it back. Baldwin claimed the humanoid broke the muzzle of the gun while examining it. Baldwin said, ” He wasn’t white and he wasn’t black. He talked very plainly and with no accent. He had black curly hair.” He told me he would be back, walked up to the saucer, got in and seconds later zipped off out of sight. No imprints or footprints were left in the snow where the object had rested.

apro60Date: March 9, 1967
Location: Near Henderson, Ill.
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Summary: The Moline Sighting And Film Dr. Allen Utke, APRO Consultant and Professor of Chemistry at Wisconsin State University, went to Moline, Illinois, to investigate the March 9th sighting and Filming oI a UFO by William Fisher. His report follows : William Fisher is a 32-year-old patrolman on the Moline, Illinois police force, On March 9, 1967 at 1:30 p.m. he claims to have seen a UFO from the schoolyard of the Sacred Heart School in Moline, Fisher does school traffic duty and rides a motorcycle. He claims Mrs. Leo Schmitz anal Mrs. Frank Daebelliehn had pulled their cars to the curb and were also watching the object. Dr. Utke tried to contact both of these women but was unable to reach them lor comment. According to Fisher, Sister Mary Mark anal some children from the school also saw the object, but Sister Mary Mark is reluctant to discuss it. When Fisher first saw the object he said it was as big as his thumb held at arm’s length. He thought it was at an altitude of about 3000-4000 feet and about 1 to 1r, miles away. IIe estimated it to be about 30-40 feet in length or possibly even larger, The object lirst seemed to be extremely briLLiant and did’t have any definite outline other than that of a football. It then moved away from him into the NNW and seemed to become thinner in shape and less brilliant, Fisher later called the weather bureau and found that the winds were at 4O-45 mph generally from the WNW that day, almost counter to the direction of the object or at least perpendicular to it, Fisher thought the object was following the Mississippi downstream in a rough sort of way. The Mississippi flows from East to West at Moline. He first thought the object might be an aircraft, but soon realized it was not, and he also said he does not believe it was a weather balloon. There was no sound that he could detect, Unfortunately, Fisher did not start – shooting his 8mm movie camera (which he uses in his work) immediately anal also unfortunately the first 10 feet oI that he did shoot did not turn out. The 20-30 feet (30-45 seconds) he does have were taken therefore when the object was quite a bit further away than when he first saw it. The movie only shows a small, whitish object slowly moving into the background, although the ob. ject does seem to tip slightly at one place. There is no change in altitude and no change in speed. The photograph shown with this article is an enlargement (about 5 times) of one of the frames. Fisher was very cooperative aNd Dr, Utke does not feet he elaborated in any way upon what he observed. APRO will obtain a copy of the film as soon as it is available and iI additional frames prove of any worth for reproduction in the Bulletin they will be used in a subsequent issue.

Date: March 10 1967
Location: Near Piggott Arkansas
Time: unknown
Summary: Two men were motoring in a remote area when their truck’s engine failed. Before they could get out of the vehicle to investigate, they saw a fifty foot wide saucer shaped UFO descend to the ground in front of them. Two bizarre looking “aliens” emerged from the object and walked over to the truck. The humanoids were described as of average height. With large heads, flat on the back, gray in color. They had normal eyes, mouths, and noses. They wore tight fitting gray diver’s suits. The two men reported they felt like they were being bombarded with vibrations and had the uncanny feeling the aliens knew what they were thinking. Rolling the truck windows down, the men spoke to one of the aliens, that reportedly told him that they meant no harm and they could continue their journey if they promised to keep the meeting a secret.

Location: Palo Minnesota
Time: 1415
Summary: Four boys, Bob and John Kangas, Mike Kauppi and Scott Mackay, aged 9-12, were riding on a snowmobile when they saw a very bright light coming from an old abandoned hay shed in an open field, and a second beam of light about 100 yards away. Near the latter were 5 moving black “objects” about 3 to 4 feet high, and arranged in a diamond formation with a fifth at the center; these “objects” seemed to glide over the deep snow, then moved toward the beam of light and when they reached it, both the light and the “objects” faded out of sight. The boys headed for the nearest house, “visibly shaken, almost to the point of hysteria.” Two footprints of unidentifiable shape were found later at the site.

Location: South Glenn Falls New York
Time: 2230
Summary: Clyde L Dwyer observed a large object from a window in his home; approximately 100 feet in diameter, it was disc shaped and hovered motionless between 175-200 yards southeast of his home. Three large square windows were spaced around the midline of the object and just below these, jets of what appeared to be steam were emitted continually from a number of equidistant points around the object. Its dark mass was illuminated by a nearby street lamp; a white light shone from the windows; two men and a woman could be see in the central window, and two men behind the window to the right. Although no distinguishing characteristics could be seen, “these figures were definitely of human appearance.” After hovering for about five minutes, the object gradually departed toward the southwest. No sound was heard at any time.

Location: Butler Pennsylvania
Time: 2245
Summary: Going out to look for low flying lights that his wife had seen, Mr. B and his daughter observed two globes of yellow-white light about a mile down the road and 200 feet up. These approached and descended, and appeared to land on the road a quarter of a mile away, but then raced toward the witness’s car at an estimated 70-80 miles an hour. When 50 yards away, they suddenly vanished; the witnesses then saw, at the same spot and in the headlights of the car, a standing group of five expressionless humanoid figures. The car had to swerve around these beings, which were directly ahead of it, to avoid hitting them. They had slit eyes and mouths, pointed noses, and rough looking skin like scar tissue. All wore caps beneath which blond hair was visible; the shortest, only 5-feet tall, had shoulder length hair and may have been a woman. All wore loose fitting gray green shirts and trousers. As the lights approached the car, the daughter had heard “a chorus of voices in my head, repeating, “don’t move.'”

Location: Minitare Nebraska
Time: 1930
Summary: The Cecil Bailey and Robert Lore families had observed UFOs in the area on several occasions. On the evening of March 26, they were back and Lore and Bailey were in a car driving north of their farms to look for lights that had appeared to land on the ground. In an isolated section of farmland the two men passed a human appearing figure in white coveralls standing alone by the roadside; their dog, in the car, “really kicked up a fuss,” appeared to be terrified. When the men got home, the lights were once more visible in the sky, one bright enough to light up the hill behind it. On returning to the site where they had seen the stranger, the next day, they found numerous nearly rectangular footprints, some of them 9.75″ long and others 8.5″ long.

Location: Munroe Falls Ohio
Time: 0220A
Summary: Driving home from work in Kent at 0215A, David Morris rounded a bend and noticed an orange red, glowing cone shaped object, 25 feet high and 12 feet wide, hovering several feet above a field to his left. When he looked back at the road he saw four of five little beings running back and forth across the road directly in front of his car. Less than 4 ft tall, they were stocky; and either had abnormally large heads or were wearing helmets; they glowed the same orange red color as the object. He slammed on his brakes, but not in time to avoid hitting one of the little figures, and he saw an arm fly up with a mitten-like hand—no distinct fingers—as the car collided with it. At the same time he smelled a strong metallic odor, “like brass.” He stopped some distance ahead, believing he had struck somebody; looking back, he saw a group of the beings clustered around what was apparently the one he struck. Suddenly realizing that what he hit was certainly not human, he became frightened and “burned rubber” getting away from the place. He arrived at home in a very upset state and later, found that the impact with the being had left dents and scratches on the bumper of his car.

Date: March 31 1967
Time: night
On the evening of March 31, Lester Rosas, acting under a strange compulsion, boarded a bus and took it to the end of the line, which happened to be along a coastal area. He kept walking until he reached a deserted part of the beach. Unsure why he was there, he felt an odd sensation as a man who had shoulder length hair and was dressed in a close fitting garment approached him. The man extended his hand, but when Rosas tried to shake his hand, the stranger withdrew it after a mild pressing of palms. The strange spoke in Spanish, and told Rosas that he was from Venus and that his name was “Laan-Deeka.” He then began to discuss the subject of reincarnation, saying that advanced earthlings who obey nature’s laws are permitted to live their next lives on spiritually developed planets. The stranger then led Rosas the other side of a small nearby wall, where they witnessed the materialization of a disc shaped object. A door slide open, and a woman emerged to engage Rosas in a palm-to-palm handshake. “Her hair was long and fair, and she had a fantastic figure…I estimated her measurements at 5’4″ and 37-27-35.” She introduced herself as Laan Deeka’s fiancée. The couple appeared to be no more than twenty years old, but their manner suggested wiser, older persons. They had high foreheads and slightly slanted eyes, his green, hers blue. There was a musical sound to their voices, a sense of joy in their speech and action. The three then entered the ship and flew off to Venus, which proved to be a paradisiacal world reported by other Contactees.

Time: 2230
Summary: Carroll Watts, a farmer, had just left his father’s farmhouse; as he drove near his own property, he saw a light near an abandoned farmhouse. Fearing prowlers, he drove to within 200 ft and approached on foot, finding a gray bullet shaped object, 100 feet long and 8-10 feet in diameter, with a 20″ diameter light in its nose, hovering a foot above the ground. Watts walked around the object and, finding the outline of an unopened hatch, knocked on it. A U-shaped door was lowered from the hull, to the sound of a whirring motor; steps inside the door led into the interior of the craft which was illuminated by a bluish-white light and contained instruments and electronic type equipment. On the opposite side of the room he observed what appeared to be a map, about a foot above the floor, about a yard square in size. Shortly after the door opened, Watts heard a mechanical sounding voice, although he saw no one; the voice addressed him by name and asked him to submit to a “strenuous” physical examination, as a prerequisite for being given a ride in the object. Alarmed, Watts quickly retreated and left the area. He reported the incident within days to the local Air Force Base at Amarillo.
