DONUT CAPTURES FLYING SAUCER ON RANCH IN LAKE CO. REGION
Lake Co. Man and Wife Report Disk Seen
The intelligence office of the 1st Donut group at Mundelein Army Air Field announced at noon today, that the field has come into possession of a flying saucer.
According to information released by the department, over authority of Maj. I. Prop, signal officer, the disk was recovered on a driveway in the Lake County Area, after an unidentified rancher had notified him, here, that he had found the instrument on his premises.
Major Prop and a detail from his department went to the ranch and recovered the disk, it was stated.
The intelligence office stated that no details of the saucer's construction or its appearance had been revealed.
Two unnamed residents apparently were the only persons in Mundelein who have seen what they thought was a flying disk.
They were sitting on their porch last Wednesday night at about ten minutes before ten o'clock when a large glowing object zoomed out of the sky from the southeast, going a northwesterly direction at a high rate of speed.
Both ran down into the yard to watch. It was in sight less than a minute, perhaps 40 or 50 seconds. It appeared to him to be about 1,500 feet high and going fast. In appearance it looked oval in shape like two inverted saucers, faced mouth to mouth, or like two oldtype washbowls placed together in the same fashion. The entire body glowed as though light were showing through from inside, though not like it would be if a light were merely underneath.
It looked to be about five feet in size, and making allowance for the distance it was from town it must have been 15 or 20 feet in diameter, though this was just a guess. It made no sound.
