Subject: Maryland Conference A Huge Success

Herewith is a summary of last Saturday's conference which was
arranged, introduced and MC'd by Dr. Peter Resta, clinical
psychologist who has worked with abductees. It was originally
scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but about half the
audience was still there at 7 p.m.

Mysteries of Space and Sky IV: Sixty Years of UFOs

Thanks to exceptional PR work by Susan Swiatek, almost two pages
about the forthcoming conference appeared in the Washington Post
on the prior Sunday. As a result, there was an overflow crowd of
probably more than 100 people at the Center for Applied Learning
& Technology

All speakers gave illustrated talks using Power Point, slides,
or lantern projector images, on the theme of what has happened
in the past 60 years and where we stand now..

Susan Swiatek, MUFON State Director for Virginia, presented an
overview of the abduction phenomenon

Robert Swiatek, secretary-treasurer of the Fund for UFO
Research, reviewed the history of official and private UFO
investigations in France.

Carl Feindt, Mr. Water UFO, presented his case for UFOs that
enter and emerge from bodies of water large and small and some
of the apparent field effects from them.

Don Berliner, current chairman of the Fund for UFO Research,
recounted highlights of counter-to-fact explanations for UFOs
that the Air Force and debunkers have cited over the years.

Richard Hall reviewed his 50 years in the field, focusing on
NICAP and its role in UFO history and the "Mother of All UFO
Waves" 1966-68.

Bruce Maccabee, past Fund for UFO Research chairman and MUFON
State Director for Maryland, gave an overview of 60 years and
recounted some of his personal investigations.

Some informal polling indicated that the audience was for the
most part a well-educated and well-informed group. Among those
present was Dick (New World Order) Farley, who believes we are
all disinformationists in cahoots with the Government to
suppress the truth that internationalist cartels are
manipulating the public to believe in UFOs in order to take over
the world. Roswell was not aliens, it was evil Government
experiments on human beings. Something like that. Kind of hard
to follow his...[il]logic. Which suggests a new expression: Ill
Logic; a lot of that around.
