Genesis for the New Space Age with John Leith - Chpt VI - USA Shares Secret of New Plane with Allies

Again we now encounter an odd variation that does not come naturally unless it is largely true.  I know from other work that the Canadian British USA military research alliance is very much intact but never talked about.  That Germany became part of it is also completely believable because of scientific skill levels that could be tapped..  Yet it is not something that an American writer would think to suggest unless it actually was true and he knew it.  This does not make the rest of the story true but it speaks clearly to deep level informants.

 I posted a picture here of Comox on Vancouver Island. Rail access existed in the forties as well whose traffic would have been easily worked around and port facilities in Victoiria allowed ample supply runs.  Beyond the obvious, i could lose Switzerland anywhere in the Coast mountains.  The problem is actual access which Vancouver had..

In this chapter we shed the mystery aerodynamic system and are introduced to the motor which makes all this possible.

Now i want to say something.  What is described, i now know how to  develop and build.  I did not two years ago.  What we have is access to the energy and an initial understanding of how to work with the gravity.  This is sufficient to tinker a working device that does exactly what this five pound motor does.
 The writer could never have known this and the explanations from the man from Venus conform completely to what i already have discovered while adding nothing, simply because it is so simple.  We do have a strong indication that the sphere of influence of the second tier of matter is confined to a star and includes a bubble that encloses the planets and all associated debris. I expected as much but the choice of language confirms my conjectures.


Chapter VI

USA Shares Secret of New Plane with Allies

As World War II began, allied intelligence speculated that the Germans also had developed the round wing plane. But no one learned if the enemy had turned out ten or 1,000, nor when or where they would strike. The worst was feared, and the U.S. geared itself to produce a counter force with plans calling for a preponderance of their own round wing planes in answer to the German threat.

The ultimate military advantage of Caldwell's new aerodynamic invention had been realized by government authorities as far back as its discovery in 1936. President Roosevelt had shared the secret with Prime Minister Mackenzie King of Canada, outlining the gravity of keeping classified the development and testing of the new round wing plane.

In 1936, the Canadian Prime Minister, on hearing the difficulty of security, and the need to challenge the Germans in case of hostilities, had arranged to place a hidden valley in central British Columbia on Canada's west coast, off limits to settlement. The 300 square mile valley was so remote and without road entry that only a bird would be able to enter this wild refuge undetected. The  hideout was designated to become the new home of the round wing plane endeavour and, in a far-sighted act of wisdom, President Roosevelt decided to give the project national priority and share the development of the round wing plane with the Canadians and British. Thus in 1936, the impenetrable inland hideout in British Columbia saw hundreds of surveyors and planners break solitude for a new industry and town. By 1938, roads were being built, and a three mile tunnel for a two-track electric railroad was cut by hard rock miners through solid mountain into the valley domain. No one guessed the reason. And in the valley proper, forests were felled, heavy roads and air strips were built, town and factory sites were laid out, and the world's first space craft manufacturing facilities were feverishly erected.

By January 30, 1942, the Caldwell group had arrived from Los Alamos. Foreign espionage surveillance would again be without their quarry.

Two top U.S. scientists, John S. Pershag (structural design) and John B. Meyers (instrumentation) were assigned to Caldwell's staff; and also John B. Adams of whom records do not give country of origin.

A separate, international team assumed special scientific tasks also. This team included Colonel Charles Hadden of England, who had done yeoman service in the Royal Air Force Defense of London. Hadden had formerly taught physics at a British university. An American of 1848 German descent, Felix S. Essen, was also part of the team. Canada sent Steward L. McLane, kin of Prime Minister Mackenzie King. McLane had taught advanced mathematics at the University of Ottawa.

This team of engineers first built models and tested them for stress in wind tunnels. They also worked on aviation fuels for the new jet motors. Throughout their terms of service, Hadden and McLane chaffed to get out of the round wing engineering functions into conventional military combat but were  refused permission to leave. (See Epilogue for their awards for achievement).

Northwestern University's lab also became a part of the British Columbia operation. Russian scientific participation had been authorized by President Roosevelt but the Chiefs of Staff in the U.S.A. and Great Britain refused to endorse direct Soviet participation. Russian advisers were therefore sent to the U.S.A. but were never given visas to the heart of the project in Canada. New workers were recruited to run the various enterprises and facilities and the Caldwell venture which had begun in an abandoned bam in Maryland, U.S.A. became a state within a state in British Columbia, Canada. Maximum security would guard the greatest invention of mankind and any aeroplane flying into this forbidden air space would be shot down or escorted by fighter craft to an outside airport from which its occupants might not be freed if their stories did not suit the authorities. The combined intelligence of America, Canada  and Britain would make it certain that plans and development of the round wing plane would never again be stolen by a foreign power.

The fact that the Germans had acquired the original Caldwell patent and drawings had never ceased to anger and embarrass United States intelligence. But in 1943, some providential information about the German round wing plane development enabled the Americans to retaliate. The task would be to steal people. Allied Intelligence headquarters in London revealed that three of Germany's top scientists wished to defect from Hitler's round wing plane programme. Their skills were metalurgy, chemistry and mathematics and a profound understanding of electronics, a new technology in the 40's. All of these sciences and skills were useful in several areas of construction which the allied space programme in British Columbia desperately required.

Five Americans were dropped at night in Germany amid intense ground fire from the secret installation against which the raid was conducted. Under the quiet and unassuming leadership of OSS Colonel Williams, nicknamed The Fox by the Germans, the group cut their way through barbed and electric wire into the camp. Two guards were silently garroted and the American infiltrators, three of whom spoke perfect German, entered the building where the defectors lay sound asleep. Once identified, the  German scientists were wakened and before they could exclaim in surprise, their mouths were taped  without incident. Each was given ten minutes to fully dress in the darkness. Back through the fence the American OSS men and their willing hostages crawled to the outside as two Yanks lingered to repair the electric wire with jumper cables so the current would flow undetected.

Four miles away from the camp the eight men followed their map co-ordinates off a main road down a narrow dirt path that dead ended.

Suddenly two camouflaged jeeps were seen indistinctly and a cheery English voice called out: "1 say
there you chaps, we wond:red what kept you!" Colonel Fox grinned. Three days later, traveling only at night and hiding in pre-arranged rendevous, the group reached a lonely Swiss border post which opened as if pre-arranged: Stopping at Berne, the British and American agents disbanded. The three Germans, each on a different plane began their trips which eventually took them to the pulse of the English speaking world's round wing development located in a pioneer town far away in British Columbia, Canada. In the months that followed, one of the Germans provided invaluable help in perfecting the electronic gear of the craft, another's immediate contribution resulted in a vast improvement to the craft's former lethargic lift-off, and the third German defector used his mathematical ability along with that of the metallurgist to redesign the framework.

(Following the war, the families of these German scientists joined them, along with 183 other German round wing technologists who were later recruited. Many of them live today in British Columbia and California.)

By mid 1941, employment offices throughout North America were set up in such points as San Francisco, Detroit and Toronto, and special skills were sought. Drafted labor, generally bachelors, were enticed to move to Bristish Columbia with its special amenities in a brand new town. Each was carefully chosen for his stability and reliability. Before the end of the year, new production lines were filled with skilled men ready to begin turning out round wing planes in a revolutionary aircraft industry. When the U.S. entered the war in December 1941, production was stepped up and the new valley town geared to become the Detroit of the Pacific northwest.

The Caldwell planners, on the advice of the U.S. Air Force, decided they would produce a new pressurized 98 foot, long range ship, designed to be equipped with a successfully tested laser beam. They opted for a maximum range of 20 hours and 25,000 miles destination - to Germany and return, or if need be, non-stop around the world. The new jet-equipped model would slice the air in rain or shine at 750 miles per hour cruising speed, above the range of the best German anti-aircraft guns.

But production difficulties were still being encountered and the planners wished desperately for more
skilled workers in the new techniques required to build the plane. Shortly after the arrival of the German scientists there also began appearing, as if in answer to the planners wishes, super-skilled tradesmen who according to their applications had been hired in various North American centers. These men all  spoke English with the same unrecognizable accent. And it was also observed that these people preferred to speak among themselves in an unknown tongue. The hiring personnel estimated there were at least 450 such strangers. Another odd thing noted about these workers was a preference for their own company. But whether on the job of tool and die making, or drafting, their craftsmanship was so superb that they seemed to have been pre-trained and thoroughly  experienced. Furthermore their members often suggested techniques to improve manufacture, design,  or production.

At a meetingin June of 1942, Jonathon Caldwell, aware of the new superior workers, called a top management meeting of the governing body. Rumors had been rife at the plant about the foreigners in  

the work force. "Gentlemen," said Caldwell, "authorities in Washington and Ottawa have alerted me
that our plant work force has recently been augmented by the arrival of skilled workers, each of whom has identical vocabulary and accent. I have been told they all are graduates of a central, interplanetary language school located on another planet, namely Venus." That is how the final word was broken to the management that the allied round wing effort was being aided from another world. Whether that word seeped through to the workers of earthly origin is not known.

The military had come to believe that the object of the friendly infiltration was to aid the Caldwell group in turning out a superior round wing plane in such numbers and superior quality as to make the allied war effort invincible, for the day they would be used to crush the enemy. To the civil authorities in charge of key planning, it would be decided later which to deploy first - the (Manhattan) atom bomb, or the (Jefferson) round wing plane. If atom bomb tests failed over the Nevada desert, then most certainly the round wing plane fleet would become the primary offensive weapon.

Unfortunately, the allied military, on accepting this advanced aid from another planet, had not understood that the visitors intended the allies to develop only a tactical superiority in the air by means of the round wing plane. The aliens emphatically forbade its use destructively over Germany or Japan. This denial on the part of the Venusians for military use of the round wing plane would be a moral problem that would frustrate the allies during the entire war.

But the governing board in the British Columbia space center, known as Project X, was not prepared for the next extra-terrestrial shock which befell them in mid- 1942. Production kinks had been cleared  up and a new plane was being finished every thirty-six hours. Student pilots from Kelly Field were arriving to take further advanced training in the new planes and the valley complex grew steadily each month.

In the late summer of 1943, a strange space ship dropped out of the sky and stopped in a clearing near Caldwell's office. As a crowd began to gather a tall, dark-haired stranger stepped down carrying a black suit case. His introductory words were: "I wish to speak to Jonathon Caldwell. I bring something necessary for the improvement of your new round wing plane."

After some confusion and delay by security forces, the unannounced visitor was eventually taken to Caldwell where he introduced himself, saying simply he was from the capital city of planet Venus,
wherein dwelt a sister race of planet earth. "Many Venusian workers and others of intergalactic origin are already helping you in your plant." Then asking permission to open the small suit case, he lifted out a round device weighing less than five pounds.

He addressed himself to Caldwell. "We have been watching your progress for several months at this location. Some time back we (i.e. our solar system council) decided to send skilled workers to help the English speaking people working here, sponsored by the industrial might of the United States. Object of the aid was to expedite your production plans. I shall not give you our entire reasons for this help, except to say that our extra terrestrial foresight of world happenings is greater than that of Earthlings.

But in observing the North American beginnings in the design and manufacture of your new native invented round wing plane, we have not been disappointed. In typical American fashion you have built a fleet of planes that lack only few modifications, or should I say breakthroughs, to enable you to explore space. The round wing plane is the most impressive aircraft in your entire world." The stranger was interrupted. "But you, sir, didn't come to us to simply compliment our war effort," spoke up Caldwell.

"Definitely not!" said the visitor. "I have been sent here on a mission of aid. But first may I request that I be permitted to become part of your management group for a few weeks - if you don't object. To
show my good faith, I have been instructed to present a special gift before I explain my liaison. The gift from my home planet is this." The speaker then held up in his hand for all to see what he termed an anti-magnetic motor with which to power the largest of the new planes. "It will take the place of your excellent jet motor, " he added.

More than one of his listeners smiled. All knew the jet motor and its accessories weighed at least 1,000 pounds. Another looked at the device held in the alien's hands and laughed. Ignoring the interruptions, the stranger continued: "Of course I know you think I'm joking. Therefore, to prove my credibility we will test this motor in one of your completed 98 foot ships. We will do it today if you don't object. Then, if you are satisfied, "he said turning to Caldwell, "I '11 remain long enough to show you how to  modify your existing ships and set up facilities to build the motors for future production."

Someone said, "It looks like it came out of a refrigerator or washing machine," as the motor was passed around for examination. The stranger smiled politely. Caldwell knew what his advisors were thinking:  Up to 40 per cent of the power generated by a conventional motor was used in moving the weight and  mass of that motor before it could lift or move its pay load.

Next day, on Caldwell's instructions, the new five pound motor was mounted temporarily on a round wing plane, the jet remaining in place. Electric circuits were shut off on the huge jet motor and Caldwell himself entered the ship along with the pilot and other executives as the Venusian spaceman took the controls. The motor was turned on and like a toy ship, the huge craft lifted silently straight upwards.

In a moment, the group was looking down on the valley from several hundred feet. An astonished Caldwell eagerly took the controls. When the craft landed a few minutes after the anti-gravity lift test, the being suggested they hover over a Sherman tank and attach a steel cable from the tank bolts to the round wing plane. The tank weighed several tons more than the plane. Attachments completed, the plane slowly rose as the cable became tight. Ground onlookers yelled as the round wing plane with the five pound propulsion, anti-magnetic motor imported from Venus rose in the air and carried the tank aloft as though it were a leaf from a tree. The tank, in fact, had become weightless. Turning to the crew, the alien mentioned that it would be as easy to lift a 10-story office building. He explained that when the iron chain was placed around the tank, it also became an electromagnet by repulsing the Earth's magnetism as did the plane itself, i.e. the object (tank) lifted, became an integral part of the ship.

(The original motor described above is now mounted and stored in a glass show case in a U.S. Air Force underground vault in Kensington.)

The visiting alien later unfolded plans for motor manufacture on the site. In the future design, the small anti-gravity motor would provide ascent and descent propulsion, operating in conjunction with precise, magnetic points of fluctuation in the plane's perimeter for horizontal flight. All combinations of horizontal and vertical flight patterns would be handled by a panel computer. The electro magnetic energy of the  universe would run the planes from now on.

Furthermore, the round wing plane capacity would not require space for the big jet, and another third of the interior capacity would be freed from fuel storage and converted to equipment installation or cargo. The great power of the new motor would also enable the engineers to reinforce the light weight girder  frame of the craft with heavier, load-bearing materials.

But before the visitor settled down he had another surprise package, for which he went back to his ship. When he emerged he carried under his arm what looked like a roll of plain, pewter colored wall paper, but much thinner. In the next few days the Caldwell staff discussed the application of the new material. It had been brought fresh from a Venus rolling mill and the Earth engineers were told there was enough of the paper thin substance to cover at least six key ships if applied within the next seven curing days. A craft just off the assembly line was set aside and the man who still insisted he came from planet Venus stretched and cut the material to cover all exposed surfaces. Six ships were covered. The  new material would be case hardened and ready for flight in a year.

"When you roll these six craft out in September of 1944," the alien explained, "you will be able to circumnavigate the globe in an hour if you wish and their impervious skins will not overheat."

By the end of 1944, there were 500 round wing planes with new motors (three model sizes 98', 60', 33') stored in the British Columbia valley. The skilled workers presumbably from Venus had gradually  departed in unaccountable ways after training a labor force which had become their equal. Also by late 1944, advanced versions of Caldwell's craft and their crews were training daily in formation flying over the Pacific northwest. Increased speeds far beyond 3,000 mph had eliminated the obsolete rudder. The alien advisor had also left plans for a new battery and an improved landing gear with self-propelled castor bottoms. Also, the planes could now hurl themselves from a great height to ground level by reversing the motor from magnetic repulsion to attraction. Near point of ground impact, the motor again automatically reversed to repel, at which time the landing tripods were electronically lowered to Earth.

The crews referred to this technique as "ballooning the ship to the ground." Pilot jargon for setting down the ship and cutting the motor was called "peaceful landing."

Regarding gravity, the reader should abandon his present concepts and rest assured that in such a landing the crew would not feel the elevator effect of either a free fall or lift-off. There are no gravitational forces exerted on the human body in such a balloon landing or sudden lift-off from ground level, because the entire crew becomes part of the round wing plane itself - and therefore does not have to overcome gravity. The crew and their plane make use of the properties of attraction and repulsion in magnetism in order to function with gravity - rather than trying to overcome that force.

The small motor size and stronger interior also permitted a doubling of crew from six to twelve, if necessary, for a military mission, or more passengers if used as a passenger carrier. But also important, most new models were downsized to 60 feet in diameter when free magnetic energy made unnecessary  extra storage space for the liquid fuels which formerly fed the jet motor. One day in September the alien requested that Jonathon Caldwell assemble all the governing board and other executives. He complimented the Earthmen in the valley for use of their small, radio-controlled drone planes, used for testing the aerodynamic possibilities in later full scale models. "You people here," he said referring to the valley complex workers, "are way ahead of any Earth nation in development of the round wing plane, first invented by your native son Caldwell.

That is why among other reasons we advanced people of this solar system decided to lend you some
help. I beg of you, however, don't misuse that help we have given you!"

Then the polite stranger dropped a bombshell on his listeners. "Your leaders have already been told that we would not like you to use these new planes in this war except on a limited basis. Any thoughts you have in mind for punitive action should be dropped." Looking at the U.S. Air Force liaison officer he said, "Although I loathe war, I must trust in your military superiors to heed my advice and not use this new machine as a weapon but rather a conveyance to expedite the ending of this present, unnecessary  world-wide conflict. This entire solar system is watching your tragic world war. We do not want you to use this new invention to deliver to an enemy your latest explosive device (he referred to the atom bomb) which you are now perfecting.

"We have already provided you with new motors. But we shall withhold the formula for the skins. Thus, without that formula to prevent overheating of the ship's outer surfaces, ultimate speed necessary to leave and re-enter planet Earth's atmosphere must be carefully controlled. Someday when the time is ripe, we will help you in this regard also. In the meantime, be content with what you have."

He ended by saying, almost apologetically, "On our planet, as in this entire solar system, war is outlawed. More important than this technological help I have brought with the blessings from our nation is the fact that war on Earth must also be outlawed. When war on earth is over, then Earth men will be shown how to use their own resources of men and materials to venture into space."

The Venusian had stayed four months. He constantly gave his directions to Superintendent General Caldwell who in rum comprehended their significance in production techniques and passed on the alien's suggestions to the Earth planners. The new team functioned smoothly as the guiding genius sent from another world sat in the councils of the Earth developers of the round wing plane - and together  they built a fleet of marvelous craft. The alien, who was known simply as Mr. Lewis, one day said good-bye to his new compatriots. Taking the hand of Jonathon Caldwell, the alien said softly, "I salute you Sir! You are the man who first was called out of your country to point the way forward for people of the Earth. You showed men how to fly without wings." As the stranger said good-bye to a host of friends, a ship dropped out of the sky, and he departed aboard it. In a group photo taken before departure, the place where the alien stood was blank.
