Subject: Did The CIC 'Distress' The Rhodes Photos?

EBK and List,

[The photos were taken by Mr. William Rhoads, 4333 N. 14th
St., Phoenix, Arizona, at sunset on 7 July 1947 --ebk]

The negative of the first photograph as published on July 9,
1947 in the Arizona Republic was 'distressed' before it was
analyzed by Lewis C. Gust at Air Material Command on February
19, 1948. The questions are who did it, and why.

"The "cut" negative of the first photo -- all the imaging
reference  points were cropped out (which I think Gust alluded
to) -- is the one AMC and Sign, and in fact all PBB Incident
#40 files, refer to.

The second negative was never (officially) in possession of
the AF saucer Projects. They had the first negative (or a
duplicate of it), which had been cropped to remove the imaging
reference points, and perhaps reprocessed to appear faded and

So, it appears there was a hoax, and a rather skillful one at that."
