July 06, 1947


* The day of the "Roswell Incident"
* UFO craze was already in high gear

The front page of this issue has the banner headline: "SIFT 'FLYING DISK' REPORTS", with subhead: "Puzzle Grows; Facts Hidden, VFW Hints - Asserts People Are Told 'Too Little'", followed by a near-column of text which is continued on an inside page which also includes a related photo and another article. Although for obvious reason Roswell is not mentioned, it is a bit intriguing to have this coverage in a major city newspaper on the day the Roswell incident allegedly occurred. Such UFO "hysteria" was already being reported throughout the country (and very likely the world).
Other news of the day is found throughout.
