1961, WELLAND, ONTARIO, CANADA, MR. I. BOYES:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In 1972 in New Zealand, a UFO convention gathered 600 people, ranging from skeptics to proponents, all talking about their respective theories and speculations. A newspaper reported on the convention, and amidst the brief presentation of various point of wiews held by the speakers, mentioned one I. Boyes, aged 26, a Canadian now living in Auckland.

This young man was promoting a group known as "Integral Structures Systems Utopia".

The group claimed to have been formed by the Intergalactic Administration and to be in contact with people from other worlds. It also claims to have been given details of how to build a flying saucer.

The group had plans to "bring a space fleet from Taurus by 1979 to stop mankind from destroying itself," to help form a world government under the "biocratic" system and abolish the monetary system.

Mr. Boyes later told the reporter that he had been telepathically attracted to a spacecraft 100 miles from his home in Welland, Canada, in 1961. He claimed he had hitchhiked the distance and was later taken on board the circular craft, about 100 feet in diameter, which was manned by three crewmen who came "from the coniferous age of earth". They had time-traveled to the present, claimed Boyle.

And that's all there is to it.

UFO TALKS

Staff Reporter - Tauranga

A woman reported sighting an unidentified flying object (UFO) over Tauranga on Friday night, but that was the only indication that extra-terrestrial visitors might be interested in a convention of people interested in them.

About 600 people attended the first national convention on UFOs in Tauranga on Saturday. They were mostly "Ufologists," but there were a few with open minds some declared skeptics.

Theories about UFOs were propounded and attacked. Not all the speakers believed in UFOs.

Mr. B. C. Musker, a sixth year engineering student representing the Auckland University UFO research group, set out to disprove Captain B. L. Cathie's harmonic theories.

However, Mr. Musker conceded: "The weight of evidence about UFOs leads me to suspect that there are some phenomena we are unable to satisfactorily explain, but I am not certain whether they are physical craft or psychic experiences.

Mr. B. Dickeson, representing the Timaru UFO research group said he did not believe in UFOs but was interested in observing them.

He advanced the theory that UFO sightings reflected the state of society and claimed there was a definite link between sightings and television programmes.

Because of a definite social trend to censor people who reported UFOs in New Zealand, only one in three sightings was reported, Mr. Dickeson estimated.

The man who claimed to have been in a spaceship, Mr. I. Boyes, aged 26, a Canadian now living in Auckland, is promoting a group known as Integral Structures Systems Utopia.

The group claims to have been formed by the Intergalactic Administration and to be in contact with people from other worlds. It also claims to have been given details of how to build a flying saucer.

The group has plans to bring a space fleet from Taurus by 1979 to stop mankind from destroying itself, to help form a world government under the biocratic system and abolish the monetary system.

Mr. Boyes later told a Herald Reporter that he was telepathically attracted to a space craft 100 miles from his home in Welland, Canada, in 1961. He hitchhiked the distance and was later taken on board it.

Mr. Boyes said the craft was circular and about 100 feet in diameter and was manned by three crewmen who came from the coniferous age of earth. They had time-traveled to the present.

Mr. P. Austin, of Auckland, editor of the UFO magazine Contact, said biblical angels had been envoys and messengers.

The discussion went on late into Saturday night and continued informally yesterday morning. There was no doubt about the interest of the people there.

But a Tauranga engineer who listened carefully to the theories went away convinced that very few of them were technically sound.

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

The authors indicate that in 1961, a Canadian now living in Auckland, New Zealand, Mr. I. Boyes, claimed he was telepathically attracted to a spacecraft one hundred miles from his Ontario home in Welland. He hitchhiked to the spot and was taken aboard a circular craft of 100 feet in diameter.

The three crewmen said they came from the Earth's "coniferous" age, whereas "coniferous" refers to pine trees, and time-traveled to the present. They had white hair, bronze skin, and spoke highly accented English.

Boyes says he was picked to help form a group, which he is presently promoting, called "Integral Structures Utopia."

The authors indicate that their source is a letter to them from John B. Musgrave, employee of the Mobile Planetarium Project at the Provincial Museum of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, citing the New Zealand Herald, April 24, 1972.

Points to consider:

A young chap wants to promote himself and play the intergalactic ambassador. For Batholomew and Howard, authors who are convinced that all UFO reports are of mistakes and frauds, it had to enter their catalogue as example of a "close encounter of the third kind." So be it!
