WARD BOWDEN ..................................................................... Publisher HOWARD VOLAND ........................................................ Editor Another Report Made On UFO Still another view of the "flying green stoplight"--now known to be bhm--in its trajectory over Mon- roe--came to light this week. Bill Woods, Washington State Reforma- tory Officer apparently observed the same UFO as Russell Logue, 625 Roberts, and Brede Knutson, South Ke "lsey St. Woods, on duty in the reforma- tory's highest tower, on the admin- istration building, thought little of the chject until he read of other reports in the MONROE MONITOR. It eems that all three men saw the UFO late the evening of May 9. Igue saw it from the parking t’ of the Evergreen Inn while Knutsen observed it from his home. The men were in agreement as to color, but each thought the ob- ject extremely close at hand. Logue figured it would crash into the town hall, Knutsen figured it would either hit the berry fields or strike beyond the woods to the south of his residence, and Woods "waited for a crash" that never happened just outside the reformatory's south wall. All agreed it was diving in an east to west flight. Spotting the men on an aerial photograph of Monroe indicates. although they sensed the object close at hand, the UFO was pro- bably well out in space. Memorials Head Named By Cry. Heart Assn.
