11/14/1954 WHILE HUNTING OBJECT CIRCLED, LANDED AND THEN TOOK OFF STRAIGHT OUT OF SIGHT.

WHILE OUT WITH DOGS HUNTING, DOGS SUDDENLY RETURNED TO MY LOCATION ACTING SCARED. SINCE I WAS ONLY FOURTEEN AT THE TIME IT SCARED ME. MY DOGS HAD NEVER ACTED THAT WAY AT ANY TIME.

THEN WAY UP HIGH IN THE NORTHERN SKY A LIGHT THAT WAS CHANGING FROM RED TO WHITE TO BLUE TO YELLOW KEPT GROWING LARGER. THEN I COULD SEE A DEFINITE SHAPE LIKE A DISK OR A SAUCER WITH TWO ROWS OF WINDOWS. IT CIRCLED MY VICINITY FOR ONE TURN AND LANDED ABOUT 100 YARDS FROM ME.

MY DOGS LEFT ME AND WENT HOME ABOUT TWO MILES TO THE EAST. I STOOD STOCK STILL AND WATCHED.

I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT DID BUT AFTER ABOUT FOUR MINUTES IT STARTED TO RISE SLOWLY. THE BOTTOM EDGE SEEMED TO PULSATE OR SPIN. IT GOT ABOUT 30 TO 50 FEET OFF GROUND AND STOPPED. IT BANKED AS IF LOOKING AT WHERE I WAS STANDING. I TURNED AND WALKED AWAY SLOWLY. IT ROSE STRAIGHT UP UNTIL OUT OF SIGHT.

THE NEXT DAY I RETURNED TO SPOT AND FOUND INDENTURES IN GROUND AND THE WILD OATS DEAD AND BROWN.

I HAVE ONLY TOLD THIS STORY THREE TIMES. NOW FOUR; THE OTHER THREE TIMES I WAS LAUGHED AT.
