FORD TO ASK INQUIRY
House Republican Leader Gerald R. Ford announced yesterday he would ask the
chairmen of the House Armed Services Committee and the Science and Astronautics
Committee to consider a "full blown" investigation of unidentified flying
objects. Several hundred persons have reported seeing mysterious lights in Mr.
Ford's home state of Michigan this week. No Congressional leader has called
for such an investigation before. Mr. Ford said he was in Michigan Thursday
night and yesterday morning "and I can assure you there is interest and I
suspect public concern" over the sightings. If swamp gas caused the lights,
Mr. Ford said, USAF should have no hesitancy in explaining that to a committee.
