Flying Disc Deal 'Solved'

EL PASO, Tex., July 1 (UP) -- Troy Pendergrass came up with a solution to the flying disc mystery.

He said he found one.

He said he chased a flying disc Sunday afternoon until it landed in Ash Canyon, in the southwest corner of Elephant Butte lake in New Mexico.

The disc was a five by eight inch piece of tinfoil.

Pendergrass said he and his friends were watching birds in the sky at 1 p.m. shen they first saw the flying object.

"It looked bright like a mirror," he said.

"It was so bright we couldn't tell how big it was or how far away it was."

He said that the tin foil was slightly heavier than that used for gum wrappers and was very crinkled.

It looked like it had been wrapped around a a round object, he related. He said it ws partially burned and melted.
