What's new on the state site:

1) Regarding Roswell in the Schenectady Union Star / 1947:
   [July 9, 1947]

July 9: Army, Navy Launch Campaign to Halt 'Flying Disc' Rumors
Mentions aftermath of Roswell reports and statements by Haught &
Ramey. Also mentioned: "Those who saw the object said it had a
flowered paper tape around it bearing the initials 'D.P.'.

Apparantly, the 'flowered tape' is not a new discovery, but was
mentioned at the get-go.

2) Removed the Amsterdam 7/9/1947 entry. Located more clippings
with pics today, and it appears to have been a meteor that had
about a fistfull of material remaining when it struck the

3) Search a number of weeks of issues for items related to T.
Beckley the Silencers, in a period described as hot in his book.
While the Scenectady papers were still reporting sightings well
past that time, there were none for the period mentioned. More
significant was his sensational claim of a sighting by two boys,
followed by the discovery of a dead boy nearby found frozen in
the ice the next day. Checked the whole month and there was no
such death reported. I forgot to bring the book along, but there
was another checkable instance of a report of the husband of an
investigator dying suddenly after encountering a MIB in a
Schenectady diner. No doubt hoagy also. (Unless of course, those
nefarious MIBs deleted the obituary entry.) Better to check this
stuff out than go around speading tabloid stories as 'research'

So out the Silencer derived references go tonight.

4) While clipping fishing, also turned up two new reports from
the general time frame.
