Flying Saucer Probe Ordered 
After Reports at North Bay
NORTH BAY, April 15 -- (CP) -- Royal Canadian Air Force officials said today they plan to investigate two reports of flying saucers in this area. The reports came from airmen stationed here.

WO E. H. Rossell, a veteran airman with 13 years in the service, and Flt. Sgt. Reg McRae, a visitor from Weston, said they spotted a "bright amber disk" in the sky over the airfield around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

The two said the disk came from the southwest, moved across the airfield, stopped and then took off in the reverse direction.

It climbed at an angle of 30 degrees at "terrific speed" and disappeared.
