AUGUST 29, 1955, MULBERRY CORNERS, OHIO, USA, DAVID ANKENBRANDT:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In Mulberry Corners, Ohio, USA, on August 29, 1955,ou perhaps August 30, at 01:45 a.m., David Ankenbrandt was driving home when he saw a brilliant yellow light going down from the sky and land.

He went to look and said that it was a "some kind of aircraft, 50 feet in diameter, with a dome on the top."

He said that he was paralyzed by a beam of green lights, then "a man more than 6 feet tall", wearing something like a ski suit, came out of the apparatus and ordered to him in a high-pitched voice to inform the US government that there shall be no more wars, or else "they" will have to take over.

The pilot reinstated the craft, the paralysis ceased.

48 hours later, Ankenbrandt went back on the location, and said he was met by the same UFO pilot, who reiterated his instructions.

[Ref. bh1:] ROBERT E. BARTHOLOMEW AND GEORGE S. HOWARD:

The authors indicate that on August 30, 1955, in Mulberry Corners, Ohio, at 01:45 a.m., David Ankenbrandt was driving home, and saw a bright yellow light land. He stopped, approached and found a domed craft of thirty feet in diameter. A paralyzing green ray hit him and a man at least six feet tall in a one-piece outfit came out and said in a high-pitched voice to tell the government to stop all wars. The being reentered the object and flew off; two days later, Ankenbrandt went to the spot and met the same being who repeated the same message.

The authors indicate that the source is a report filed by O. D. Hill, Project Bluebook.

[Ref. #mk1:] MARTIN KOTTMEYER:

The author indicates that on August 30, 1955, David Ankenbrandt was given one week to deliver a message to the government: "If there were any more wars here, 'they' would have to take over." He did not deliver it, even after he received a second visit emphasizing the matter. Kottmeyer indicates: "Blue Book found out anyway and, as the kid feared, they dismissed him as a head case."

The author indicates that the source is Isabel Davis and Ted Bloecher, Close Encounter at Kelly and Others of 1955, CUFOS, 1978 pp. 184-6.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Mulberry Corners, Ohio, on August 30, 1955, at 01:45 a.m., David Ankenbrandt was driving home when he saw a bright yellow light descend from the sky; walking to the place it had landed, he found "some kind of aircraft, 50 ft in diameter, with a dome on top." A beam of green lights paralyzed him, then a man over 6 ft tall, clad in something like a ski suit, emerged and commanded him, in a high pitched voice, to inform the federal government that there must be no more wars. After the pilot re-entered, the paralysis ceased. 48 hours later, Ankenbrandt returned to the spot, and was met by the same UFO pilot, who reiterated his instructions.

Albert Rosales indicates that the sources are Humcat, and Sgt. O. D. Hill for Project Blue Book, and Allen E. Roush.

Points to consider:

The poorly documented and far-fetched story by a single-witness does not offer much in defense of its truthfulness.
