Martin's Week That Was
By Martin J. Kidston - IR Staff Writer

Legacy Of A UFO Story

His yard was manicured and the big green trees planted outside
his mobile home in the Helena Valley soaked up the summer sun.

Leo Dworshak, the man who lived there, had invited me over for a
story. I accepted on a lark =97 a call from a person who knew a
person who new him.

"You've gotta meet Leo," the caller insisted. "He's got a
fascinating story."

"Yeah?" I asked. "What's it about?"


The silence that followed was as long and deep as my skepticism.
I'd been duped before, most recently by a man who told me he was
a therapist with a novel new concept to healing. Yet when I met
him, he turned out to be a zealot, and by healing he meant his
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ the almighty God.

Sitting at Dworshak's table, I tried not to grin. After all, he
was telling me how he'd boarded a UFO in 1938 with his brother.
He had a conversation with the aliens. They told him the future.
They had already seen it.

"Yeah," I asked. "But what did they want?"

"Water," he said. "They wanted water."

"Water? Like drinking water?"

"Hydrogen, more precisely. It's what propelled their ship."

Leo wore big glasses that magnified his eyes three times their
actual size. Whenever he said "ship", his eyes grew big and he
tapped his cigarette into the ashtray. My own eyes burned from
the smoke. Perhaps the aliens wanted tobacco while they were

Leo wrote a book on his experience, UFOs Are With Us: Take My
Word. He gave me a signed copy on April 24, 2003. I took his
picture and ran it in the paper with his story: "Helena man true
believer in UFOs." That's when it all began.

Timothy Good, author of the Sunday Times bestseller, Beyond Top
Secret: The Worldwide UFO Security Threat, was the first to
call. The UFO investigator and author phoned me from England,
wanting to know more about Dworshak before traveling to Helena
to meet him.

During his visit, Good also gave me a signed copy of his book. I
took his picture, too, and ran it in the paper: "Author
researches stories of alien encounters."

That's when Art Bell's producer called from Coast to Coast
Radio. I used to listen to Bell's show as a kid, scared half to
death sitting in the dark, wondering if the things he talked
about could actually be true.

"How can I find this Timothy Good?" the producer asked.

"I don't know," I said. "He lives in the United Kingdom."

"How about Dworshak?"

"That's a little easier..."

Just last week, Dworshak's legacy continued when UFO researcher
Warren Aston phoned from Australia, wanting to know more about
Helena's now-famous UFO witness. Unfortunately, Dworshak had
passed away two weeks earlier, leaving his book as his only

"Was he credible?" Aston asked.

"He believed what he said", I told him. "He believed it
happened. In that sense, I guess I do believe him."

Dworshak was born July 16, 1920, in Flasher, N.D., to Egnats and
Josephine Dworshak. He was 86 when he passed, leaving behind 12
grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.

"There are relatively few people who know what's going on, and
those who know don't talk," Good told me in his visit. "I found
Leo's story one of the most compelling contact stories I've
