Sept 15 – 1950
Notes on interview through Lt/C. [Lieutenant Colonel] Bremner with Dr Robert I Sarbacher.
WBS: I am doing some work on the collapse of the earth’s magnetic field as a source of energy, and I think our work may have a bearing on the flying saucers.
RIS: What do you want to know.
WBS: I have read Scully’s book on the saucers and would like to know how much of it is true.
RIS: The facts reported in the book are substantially correct.
WBS: Then the saucers do exist?
RIS: Yes they exist.
WBS: Do they operate as Scully suggests, on magnetic principles?
RIS: We have not been able to duplicate their performance
WBS: Do they come from some other planet?
RIS: All we know is, we didn’t make them, and it’s pretty certain they didn’t originate on the earth.
WBS: I understand the whole subject of saucers is classified
RIS: Yes, it is classified two points higher even than the H-bomb. In fact it is the most highly classified subject in the US Government at the present time.
WBS: May I ask the reason for the classification.
RIS: You may ask, but I can’t tell you
WBS: Is there any way in which I can get more information, particularly as it might fit in with our own work.
RIS: I suppose you could be cleared through your own Defense Department and I am pretty sure arrangements could be made to exchange information. If you have anything to contribute, we would be glad to talk it over, but i can’t give you any more at the present time.
Note: The above is written out from memory following the interview. I have tried to keep it as nearly verbatim as possible.
