UFO’s – 1950 W.B. Smith memo #2

CUFON – Computer UFO Network Seattle, Washington


Scully claimed that the preliminary studies of one saucer which fell into the
hands of the United States Government indicated that they operated on some
hitherto unknown magnetic principles. It appeared to me that our own work in
geo-magnetics might well be the linkage between our technology and the
technology by which the saucers are designed and operated. If it is assumed that
our geo-magnetic investigations are in the right direction, the theory of
operation of the saucers becomes quite straight forward, with all observed
features explained qualitatively and quantitatively.

I made discreet enquiries through the Canadian Embassy staff in Washington
who were able to obtain for me the following information:

a. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States
Government, rating higher even than the H-bomb.

b. Flying saucers exist.

c. Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by a
small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush.

d. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of
tremendous significance.

I was further informed that the United States authorities are investigating
along quite a number of lines which might possibly be related to the saucers
such as mental phenomena and I gather that they are not doing too well since
they indicated that if Canada is doing anything at all in geo-magnetics they
would welcome a discussion with suitably accredited Canadians.

While I am not yet in a position to say that we have solved even the first
problems in geo-magnetic energy release, I feel that the correlation between our
basic theory and the available information on saucers checks too closely to be
more coincidence. It is my honest opinion that we are on the right track and are
fairly close to at least some of the answers.

Mr. Wright, Defence Research Board liaison officer at the Canadian Embassy in
Washington, was extremely anxious for me to get in touch with Doctor Solandt,
Chairman of the Defence Research Board, to discuss with him future
investigations along the line geo-magnetic energy release.
