UFO Conjectures

Three things...

Leon Davidson, referred to by CDA recently, deciphered the public Socorro symbol as a CIA construct. (The issue is confused as Ray Stanford in his silly-named book, Socorro Saucer in a Pentagon Pantry,  related that the popular symbol -- the one Mr. Davidson uses for his speculation -- was a ruse created by the Air Force to throw off scammers who might use the "real symbol" to confuse the public.)

Nonetheless, here's Mr. Davidson's exegesis of the popular Socorro symbol, drawn by Police Officer Lonnie Zamora for officials. Mouse over and click image to see it larger and clearer:
Robert Barrow provided, in 1982 to APRO, his view on what transpired in the December 1980 Cash-Landrum incident (and Mr. Barrow also takes a few swipes at MUFON back then).

Then, in our archives, I found a "mimeographed magazine" edited by Joan Whritenour and published out of St. Petersburg, Florida. The issue, pictured below, has no date, and may have been picked up by me when I lived in Florida. Does anyone have any information on the Whritenours (Joan or Ron) and their publication?

  • Why would the CIA put their initials on any craft? Doesn't seem to make much sense to reveal who the owner of such a craft is, especially if it is ever likely to be operating covertly. Is there any evidence that the CIA EVER put their initials onto any craft in this general time period? Or especially, any other instances where there is "CIA" and "AD" together on any craft? Let alone a test vehicle. I don't pretend to know how the CIA operates now, or back then. But with their drones today -- I wouldn't expect the CIA's drones to have a label on them saying "CIA". It's just that it seems a bit absurd on its face. The CIA would likely prefer to keep the country of origin a secret in some cases. Manned craft may be different. So is there any example anywhere of any OTHER flying craft with CIA initials painted onto it? Or any evidence that they paint such insignias onto test craft which aren't even yet presumably in operation?

  • I have to agree with Parakletos.

    Davidson was obsessed (besotted?) by the CIA and their alleged practices, and once even claimed it was they who fooled Adamski by driving him into the desert and showing him some special movies which, Davidson said, convinced Adamski he was being given a ride round the solar system in a Venusian craft! Davidson even believed the 'being' shown in the Allingham book was not a Martian but a CIA agent in disguise. Patrick Moore must have had a very good laugh at that.

    But I digress.

    As you certainly know, this was before my time. But according to this resource, that particular 'Saucer Scoop' magazine was published from 1967 to 1970. More precise info is at the URL:

    ``Saucer Scoop 1 1966-67 9=Dec Editor: Joan Whritenour 1
    Saucer Scoop 2 1967-68 1=April, 3-->5, 7--->12=March
    Saucer Scoop 3 1968-69 1-->4=July, 8-->12=March
    Saucer Scoop 4 1969-70 1=Apr---> 5/6=Aug/Sept

    Looks like a total of 25 issues: 1967=1, 1968=10, 1969=9, and 1970=5 issues.

  • Grazie, Parakletos.
