Hi Jan:

Wendy mentioned Loedding. Oddly, it was not a historical
question. I was chasing a local rumor that a airman on leave was
saying the U.S. is currently testing  'secret' craft throughout
the county and it is referred to as the 'pumpkin seed' .

BTW, have some clipping from the 50's I be sending in a few
days.

Regards,
Larry Clark
