In a private memo Ed Ruppelt wrote an amusing account of
Menzel's May 1952 Pentagon briefing, which Ruppelt attended
along with high-ranking officers in Air Force Intelligence and
AF scientist Stefan Possony.  See The UFO Encyclopedia, 2nd Ed.,
pp. 635-36, or The UFO Book, pp. 390-92, for the full story.
