APRIL 10, 1974, WHITEHOUSE, OHIO, USA, MR. SMITH:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Earl Neff and Larry Moyes, ufologists affiliated to the famous NICAP, reported that Mr. Smith had left his work near Whitehouse, Ohio, around April 10, 1974, at 00:15 a.m., and drove towards Waterville on Route 64 when his engine and lights died out.

He came out of the car and noticed another car stopped behind him; the driver, normally dressed, with the gray hair, approached and offered him a "proof" of extraodinary power by dematerializing a rock with a small hand-held device.

He told to Mr. Smith that he should "save" his wedding, and promised further "contacts."

This is all there semms to be about it.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Whitehouse Ohio, about April 10, 1974, at 00:15 a.m., the witness left work just after midnight and was driving toward Waterville on Rte. 64 when his motor and lights died. He got out of the car and noticed a car behind him stop; the driver, normally dressed and gray haired approached and offered the witness "proof" by dematerializing a rock with a small, hand held implement; he told the witness to "save" his marriage, and promised subsequent "contacts."

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Earl Neff and Larry Moyes.

[Ref. dj1:] DONALD JOHNSON:

Donald Johnson indicates that on April 10, 1974, Mr. Smith had just left work shortly after midnight and was driving toward Waterville, Ohio on Route 64 when his motor and lights died near the town of Whitehouse, Ohio. He got out of the car and noticed a car behind him stop. The driver, normally dressed and with gray hair, approached and offered the witness "proof" of his extraordinary powers by dematerializing a rock with a small, hand held device. He then told the witness to he should save his marriage, and promised subsequent "contacts."

Donald Johnson indicates that the sources are Ted Bloecher, 1975 MUFON UFO Symposium Proceedings, p. 56; David F. Webb and Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1974-15, citing Earl Neff and Larry Moyes.

Points to consider:

There is nothing in supporting of the reality of the rather nonsensical story. "Mr. Smith" might be a pseudonyme and this witness is a single witness whose profile is not indicated. There is no sign that the story was investigated, and no clue on its origin.
