Part 1: “The Bombshell Before Roswell,” Cape Girardeau, MO
© 2016 by Linda Moulton Howe
“Nearby were three identical Grey aliens, almost as if they were released
from a cookie cutter. The aliens that we recovered were ‘incinerated from within.’ ”
- Paul Blake Smith, Author, MO41 - The Bombshell Before Roswell
In the Cape Girardeau, Missouri, case, it was around 8 PM local time on April 12, 1941, when Baptist Reverend William Guy Huffman, age 52, received an urgent phone call from the Cape Girardeau Police Department. His ministerial services were needed at a sudden, terrible accident in the farm country midway between Cape Girardeau and Chaffee that are about sixteen miles apart. A policeman arrived at the Huffman home to take Reverend Huffman.
When the Reverend returned to his house later that night, he told his family they couldnever talk about what he was going to say only once: “There were three intact ‘little people’ from another world at the crash site of a silver disc.” Intact meant there was no outer damage to their tight, shiny, silver leotard-like suits. The beings seemed to die from not being able to breathe. A man was there with two cameras and took photos. One photo was later given to Rev. Huffman, who showed his family, left the photo with his son who would repeatedly show it to his family and eventual daughter, Charlette Mann. Charlette was not born at the time of the Cape Girardeau crash, but she has spoken many times to researchers and in public about the dozen times or so that growing up she saw the photo of the extraterrestrial that her grandfather gave her father.
Long-time resident of Cape Girardeau, 53-year-old Paul Blake Smith, has written a new 2016 book entitled MO41 - The Bombshell Before Roswell about an April 1941 Cape Girardeau crash. In the process, he learned there is a high probability that the three identical beings and their damaged disk were first transported to Washington, D. C., to a subterranean basement underneath the Capitol. Paul speculates that the three extraterrestrial bodies in jars and the pieces of damaged spacecraft were shown to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, his Secretary of State Cordell Hull, his Army Chief of Staff George Marshall; and then-powerful Missouri Democrat Senator Harry S. Truman, head of the Senate Special Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program.
Those powerful men would have been sworn to secrecy in the interest of national security, so they remained silent. Reinforcing the possibility that the nation’s Capitol building was a 1941 repository for the UFO crash debris and alien bodies from Cape Girardeau, Paul Smith recently told me in a recorded interview how Reverend Turner Holt — a cousin of FDR’s 1941 Secretary of State Cordell Hull — was allegedly shown three dead, identical-looking grey-colored aliens inside large glass jars in a sub-basement room of the Capitol.
Part 2: Three Cape Girardeau Aliens Underneath the Nation's Capitol?

February 26, 2016 Springfield, Missouri - In early December 1999, the Center for UFO Studies received a letter dated November 29, 1999, from Lucile Andrew, the daughter of a Reverend Holt. Lucile wrote:
"Today I want to share some knowledge that has been, by request, kept secret in our family since sometime in World War II. This concerns something my father — Reverend Turner Hamilton Holt — was shown by his cousin Cordell Hull, the Secretary of State under Franklin Roosevelt. ... Hull was a cousin to my father. My father was on some kind of advising committee and made several trips to Washington, D. C., in that capacity.
... One day when my father was in D. C. with Cordell Hull, Cordell swore him to secrecy and took him to a sub-basement in the U. S. Capitol building and showed him an amazing sight: (1) "Four large glass jars holding 4 creatures unknown to my father or Cordell; (2) A wrecked round craft of some kind nearby."
CUFOS researchers followed up with Lucile Andrew at her home where she said she had heard the Cordell Hull story when she was younger. Secretary Hull's official and personal papers were voluminous. But perhaps not surprising, no one has found his making a reference to glass jars containing alien creatures in a Capitol sub-basement.
However, author Paul Blake Smith of the 2016 book MO41 - The Bombshell After Roswell, has referenced a more contemporary interview with the Holt sisters, who told Grant Cameron that there were three jars, not four. Paul writes in his book that the Holt sisters amended the original claim of “four glass jars” to “three” and one sister blurted out: “THREE GLASS JARS, that's how daddy told it to me," in an interview with Grant Cameron, PresidentialUFO.com. The sisters made it clear that “four” was not really the number, as told elsewhere.

LINDA: “FDR, TRUMAN, GEORGE MARSHALL, VANNEVAR BUSH, ALL OF THEM KNEW ABOUT ALIEN BEINGS AND EXTRATERRESTRIAL TECHNOLOGY BY APRIL 12, 1941.
That’s correct. And in one of FDR’s memo, he mentioned, ‘We need to restrict this information.’ It was something you didn’t talk about — and barely behind closed doors and with certain right people. You didn’t talk about it certainly with the press or the public. I’ll give you a small example.
There’s a story of a man named Phillip Reynolds, who came forward in 2012. His grandfather was Mr. Walter Reynolds, a Cape Girardeau fireman. On his deathbed — Walter had cancer — he apparently confessed that not only is Pastor Huffman’s story true, he said, ‘I ought to know. I was there fighting the flames, saw the bodies. I peaked into the spaceship, too, and that he picked up some of the crash debris. The Army caught him trying to pocket it and they forced him to turn it over, booted him from the crash site. And in the aftermath, he felt that he was being watched, spied on around town and that his telephone was tapped.
“Battle of Los Angeles” - Feb. 25, 1942
When America's 37th Coast Artillery Brigade fired off
1,430 anti-aircraft shells at a diamond-shaped craft of unknown origin.
LINDA: “IT WAS NOT TOO LONG AFTER — JUST A FEW MONTHS — THAT IN FEBRUARY OF 1942, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES CARRIED A STORY OF AMERICAN ARTILLERY SHOOTING AT WHAT APPEARS IN A PHOTOGRAPH TO BE A GLOWING DIAMOND OVER THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS. IT’S REFERRED TO AS THE ‘BATTLE OF L. A.’ AND OUR GOVERNMENT TRIED TO GET AWAY WITH EXPLAINING THAT THEY WERE SHOOTING AT WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS AN INVASION FROM JAPAN FOLLOWING WHAT HAD HAPPENED IN HAWAII ONLY A MONTH AND A HALF BEFORE (DECEMBER 7, 1941 PEARL HARBOR).”
Sixty three years ago on February 24-25, 1942, all of southern California from the San Joaquin Valley to the Mexico border was blacked out. Fearing a WWII Japanese invasion attack after Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, air raid sirens had gone on and off the evening of February 24, as intermittent unidentified aerial lights were reported. Then at 2:25 a.m. on February 25, most of the greater Los Angeles region's three million population was awakened by loud air raid sirens that kept wailing for the next thirty-eight minutes. Powerful searchlights were aimed at a glowing unidentified aerial object over the Santa Monica Mountains that was shaped like a “lozenge.” Then America's 37th Coast Artillery Brigade fired off 1,430 anti-aircraft shells at the unidentified aerial, diamond-shaped craft.
Paul Smith: “That’s correct. President Roosevelt relied so heavily on George Marshall and we have a 1942 memo that was leaked around the year 2000 discussing the application of this non-terrestrial know how in atomic energy and how it should be used to perfect a super weapon of war.
FDR was burning with rage after Pearl Harbor and he wanted something done, anything that would give us an advantage over the Nazis and the Japanese Imperial Army.
He wrote to General Marshall: ‘Finding practical uses for the atomic secrets learned from the study of celestial devices. It is important for exploring further application of this new wonder.’
And in a 1944 memorandum to Dr. Vannevar Bush’s Non-Terrestrial Science and Technology Committee, Roosevelt emphasized again the application of non-terrestrial know-how in atomic energy must be used in perfecting our super weapons of war. We must take advantage of such wonders that have come to us and I congratulate you on coming to grips with the reality that our planet is not the only one harboring intelligent life in the universe.’
It seems apparent that Dr. Vannevar Bush began examining the (Cape Girardeau 1941 UFO crash) craft and found an atomic propulsion system, neutronic in nature, and thought we could possibly apply this to our atomic bomb program. And from there, boy, secrecy came down hard and fast. It was a race to see who could perfect the atomic bomb and America very much wanted to win — especially after we were attacked in December of 1941 and things looked very bad in 1941 and 1942 for this country.
We had to develop our nuclear weapon program and outrace the Germans and the Japanese and when they applied all of this atomic know how from the alien crash, that really led to what Dr. Otto Krause, Ph.D. physicist (Area 51 UFOS) called in 1962: ‘A subject that is more Top Secret than the atom bomb itself.’ He said this at a test of the atom bomb in Nevada in 1962.
Someone asked how we could have such advanced atom bomb weaponry. He replied, ‘There was a crash in the Ozarks.’
When asked to clarify, he said, ‘Oh, it was a UFO that crashed in Missouri in 1941.’
This was an eminent physicist, who knew what was going on.
