BRAZIL HAS A
SECRET; CAN'T EXPLAIN IT
Rio De Janeiro, Feb, 25--The Brazilian Navy Ministry vouched
today for the authenticity of the photographs of a "flying
saucer" taken recently aboard the navy survey ship Almirante
A Navy Ministry statement said the pictures were made by
Photographer Almior Barauna in the presence of a large number
of seamen while the ship was cursing off Trinidade Island, 700
miles off the port of Vitoria, Espirito Santo State.
Navy Minister Adm. Antonio Alves Camara said after meeting
with President Juscelino Kubitschek in the summer Presidential
Palace at Petropolis, that he also vouched personally for the
authenticity of the pictures.
"The navy has great secret which it cannot divulge because it
cannot be explained," the Minister said.
