Thanks Jerry, Stan, Peter and others.

Searching thru my list of sources, I found John Keel's book,
Operation Trojan Horse, Putnam's Sons, NY 1970. I was never
happy with it, now I'm embarrassed.

Calling up my database, there are several listings coming from
that source alone - thud! Needless to say, I have some work
ahead of me looking for alternative sources, and/or
'reclassifying' those records.

This is no fun, believe me.
