Looking back over these events, nearly a half century after they
occurred, one wonders that if the police were anxious to arrest
Rosen because of his political activities (his evaluation) then
why did they not pursue the matter? It certainly was not legal to
bribe dieners for bodies or body parts that once belonged to some
unfortunate human who had expired in a hospital. The odd refusal
to follow through might suggest that someone at a higher level,
out of sight, was pulling strings.

Of the two characters we have yet to introduce into this strange
gathering at the Round Table Foundation of Electrobiology, the
most beneficial is probably Dr. Samuel Rosen, otologist (ear

There are many people today who owe the fact that they can hear
to this doctor -- the creator of the Stapes Mobilization

He was, according to Puharich, associated with the Round Table
Foundation from the get-go. In 1949, he was fifty-one years old
and coming up to a particularly difficult time of his life. He
had not yet developed his Stapes Mobilization, but did have a
successful private practice, a nice house and fine family. The
future being bright, shades were the order of the day.

There was one significant difficulty, especially in those heady
days of loyalty oaths -- J. Edgar Hoover and The House
Un-American Activities Committee. That difficulty was in the
main, the idea his fellow doctors and his patients had gotten of
him. Mainly, that he was a communist, a pinko, a left-wing
sympathizer, a Soviet dupe.

Not only did they find his politics questionable, they found his
friends that way as well. The spunky doctor was friends with
Henry Wallace, once Secretary of Agriculture under Roosevelt, as
well as his Vice President, and later Secretary of Commerce,
under Truman.

Like Zlatko Balakovic, Rosen belonged to, and had come up on, the
wrong side following WW II and the beginning of the cold war.

He and his wife, Helen, belonged to a group that called itself
the Citizens Committee of the Arts, Sciences and Professions. It,
like Zlatko Balakovic's organizations, was cited as a subversive
group. Rosen said he had been brought into that particular crowd
by Frederick March, the actor, and it had been originally formed
to get Roosevelt reelected to a fourth term of office. As can be
detected by the subversive declaration, the FBI and other shadow
jumpers thought otherwise.

Rosen was close friends of Dashiell Hammett, a wonderful writer
with a serious drinking problem, strong beliefs and a definite
socialist bent. Hammett's FBI file contained, according to the
meticulous researcher, Herbert Mitgang, 356 pages revealing that
he was tracked not only by the FBI, but the Army as well. As
students of this particular piece of history know, the writer
would spend six months in jail in 1953 rather then cooperate with
the House Un-American Activities Committee who were trying to
find out who was posting bail for all the goddamned communist,
pinko perverts. Following his release he came to live on Rosen's
property, in a little cottage made available to him by the
concerned doctor.

Proceeding by some years, the scandal of his friendship with
Hammett and Wallace, was Rosen's friendship with Paul Robeson.
The talented, and politically active, black opera star often
dropped into the declared subversive Citizens Committee's
headquarters as he happened to be performing Othello just around
the corner. He met Rosen's wife who invited him to her and
Samuel's house for dinner. They became good friends, which leads
us into August 27, 1949 civil rights concert at Peckskill which
put the nail in Rosen's coffin, although he was not even there.

The concert had been gotten up by the Harlem chapter of the Civil
Rights Congress, of which Robeson was vice-president. The
purpose was to generate revenues which would be used to defend
American Communists and others who had been indicted for
conspiracy to advocate the overthrow of the American government.

A few hundred people, the majority of them black, had gathered at
the picnic ground to listen to Paul Robeson sing. Before
Robeson actually arrived, a crowd-intimidating phalanx of war
veterans showed up. The bunch who were there as the Veterans
Joint Council was composed of three groups of "right thinking
Americans," the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Catholic Veterans
Association and the American Legion. This composite of vets was
determined to preserve the liberty of United States citizens by,
I guess, removing liberty completely, presumably to a place of
safety known only to them. They menaced the concert goers by
positioning themselves so that those already at the gathering
could not exit and those wanting to get in could not get by.

Well one thing led to another and a fist fight started which
turned into a melee which in turn spread throughout the public
grounds. Someone turned off the flood lights and several KKK
burning crosses sprouted up.

One truck and several cars were overturned and injuries abounded
as the two sides took to flailing at one another.

Peace was finally restored when about forty law enforcement
personnel showed up along with all the local Peckskill cops that
could be mustered.

Thereafter, someone from the concert committee phoned up Rosen
and asked to use his substantial lawn to make a protest rally.
Within an hour of his giving his consent the news was on the
radio. Some three thousand people showed up. Thus it was that
Rosen notoriety as a communist grew big time. And with it the
majority of his patients, reacting to the publicity, abandoned
him and what had been a successful medical practice fell into

At the time Puharich first became associated with Rosen, the
disastrous concert was still a hop and a skip in the future. It
is not known by this writer how the two came to collaborate. This
missing data is in itself a peculiarity. Dr. Rosen wrote an
autobiography which omits any mention whatsoever of Andrija
Puharich or the Round Table Foundation of Electrobiology.

Puharich stated throughout the years that he was Dr. Rosen's
surgical assistant on the Stapes Mobilization surgical procedure.
He put the years at between 1949 and 1952. It is difficult to see
how this is what they could have been working on in 1949. Rosen
wrote he had not yet developed the surgical procedure, nor did he
even consider the possibility of doing so until 1952.

One is left to wonder just why Puharich put forth such
disinformation? On top of that there is the curious, before
mentioned, omission on Dr. Rosen's part of Andrija Puharich or
the Round Table Foundation.

If not the Stapes operation what were the two working on?

The actual research was directed at clarifying the piezoelectric
properties of a structure located on the inner surface of the
membrane located near the base of the spiral tube of the inner
ear, called the cochlea.

Some years prior, Rosen had developed a theory that the tongue
could be used as an organ of hearing. He based this on the fact
of a nerve which lay in the passageway behind the ear drum and
the bony wall of the inner ear. The space there is so small that
it could be filled with four or five drops of water. Rosen had
discovered in that passageway two nerves that had nothing to do
with hearing at all. One of them was a facial nerve. Should it be
cut during surgery, as he had once accidently done, the patient
would experience paralysis of one side of his face. The other
nerve, called the Chorda tympani nerve was utilized by the tongue
in the sense of taste.

The entire subject had come up during a lunch when Rosen was
concerned about a problem covering a hole made by a particular
operation on the ear. Tossing it about, both Puharich and he
thought that they might swing the Chorda tympani nerve over from
the tongue to cover the cavity. Once done, Rosen believed it
would be possible for the tongue to pick up sound waves and
transfer the sounds to the inner ear, bypassing the ear drum.

It was necessary to adjudicate if the nerve in question was long
enough to be successfully moved and if so could it be moved
without interfering with other parts of the anatomy?

Both Rosen and Puharich went over to Bellevue and acquired at
least one corpse to perform a practice operation. Having
successfully completed that, they decided they should practice on
something that was alive. They therefore acquired some monkeys.
Once the monkeys were under anaesthesia the surgeons deliberately
destroyed the horribly, unlucky creature's ear drums.

From there they moved the nerve fiber from the tongue and
connected it with the inner ear.

Experimentation when the monkeys had recovered showed that the
now should-be-deaf animals could hear. How well they could hear
was an unknown, but they could hear.

This work, which briefly surfaced in 1950, had been carried out
in 1948 and 1949. The reader may recall that would be the same
time period Andrija was at Bellevue with implant-happy McCulloch.

Moving away from the subject of surgery and the nervous system of
the human body, I now invite the reader, who enjoys participatory
reading, to take a US dollar bill from his pocket.

Observe the back of the bill and you will see the pyramid and all
seeing-eye design thereon. This goes back to Henry Wallace who
had, way back when he was Secretary of Agriculture, suggested the
peculiar design as part and parcel of an idea he had for a new
dollar coin. Roosevelt nixed the coin idea but kept the design.
This has, over the years, led to endless Illuminati
conspiratorial ideas.

There is no doubt that Henry Wallace had a bit of a mystic bent
about him. He was an inquisitive, productive man by all accounts.
Rosen describes him as a cold being, who had a fear of the rising
"yellow man," which may be what led him into a series of attempts
to introduce Christianity into China with Nicholas Roerich, a
Russian explorer and mystic.

As is known, he who wins the war, writes the history. Wallace did
not win the political war of the time. Truman fired him, the FBI
surveilled him, the Attorney General used association on him to
prove that one was "disloyal," and so on.

According to William C. Sullivan, once second in command at the
FBI, Hoover hated Wallace. Of course Hoover hated Truman, new
dealers, left wing radicals, and just about anything that smacked
of a position one iota left of center right.

Truman's clumsy handling of Hoover's grab for power during the
heyday of the House on Un-American Activities Committee's rape of
civil liberties led to loyalty oaths and a bunch of other scary
nonsense. Writers still like to rake up, when they are of a mind,
to show just how close the US came to fascism.

What we are talking about here is trickle down politics. And the
trickle wended its way right on down to Wallace, down to Maine,
down to Camden, Rosen and Balakovic. Hmmm, funny ... it seems
to have missed Puharich.

Truman was teed off at Henry for a number of things. One was his
letters to Nicholas Roerich (whom those in the White House
thought of as a disreputable Russian Mystic). It wasn't so much
what the letters between the two (that had somehow gotten leaked
to the press) said. It was the way Wallace addressed Roerich in
his missives: "Dear Guru." This subservient salutation to a
Russian guy by someone high in our government could not be
tolerated. This therefore helped blow the democrats away in the
1946 elections. They lost seats. They lost prestige. They had
long memories.

Another flap occurred when Wallace gave a speech at Madison
Square Garden. The speech suggested, nay said, that there was a
mighty softening of attitude toward the Soviet Union which was a
direct reversal of the facts of the case. Unfortunately Truman
had OK'd the speech without reading it carefully and therefore
was caught with his political pants down. Upshot without going
into more detail. Wallace was fired.

To hell with them, reasoned Wallace, I'll run on another ticket,
the Progressive Party. That must have caused Hoover to become
frightfully unmellow as the Progressive Party was considered to
be run by hard-line Communists.

Let me say here and now, as the author of this series, that I
have no special knowledge as to who was a communist, a socialist,
a pinko, a wrong thinker and who was not. The knowledge that I
have is who was perceived to be a communist and that knowledge,
whether the perception was correct or not, is all that I have. It
was this perception which ended the careers of many men in those
reckless days. With their careers went their achievements, some
to be resurrected in later, gentler days. Unfortunately, in many
cases the good got interred with their bones, thank you very much

Historical hindsight leaves little doubt that in those times
little regard was given as to whether or not individuals
declared subversive had actually done anything subversive.

Having regaled you with my opinions, let us turn back to the
subject, Dr. Andrija Puharich, and show what this has to do with
him and his associates. Fortunately a paper trail does exist to
some extent.

On April 1, 1949 of that year, Puharich wrote a letter to the
Trustees of a legal entity called the Wallace Fund. The money in
the fund was made up of royalties Henry Wallace had received on
one of his books.

In the letter to that fund Puharich stated that the grant he
requested was to be used exclusively for the procurement of
electronic equipment for basic neurophysiological research. He
would use the money to obtain "infra-red detectors for the
detection of long wave infra-red radiation from nerves and
nervous systems." Progress reports would be furnished to Henry
A. Wallace as well as the trustees of the Wallace fund. In this
request, Puharich also noted that the current trustees of
the Round Table Foundation were himself, William A. Brown of
Boston Mass and Carl D. Lane of Rockport Maine.

In between the letter of April 1 requesting the funds, Andrija
also got a letter off to Henry Wallace in which he extolled the
once vice-president's virtues as a "universal man" and thanked
him for "the privilege of sharing your presence."

By April 27, a check in the amount of $4,458.73 was in the mail
and on the way to the Round Table Foundation of Electrobiology.

Summing Up: Puharich is working with a ear specialist named Dr.
Samuel Rosen who is thought to be a communist. They are
researching the possibility that a nerve from the tongue can be
used to facilitate hearing. This during the same year and at the
same hospital (Bellevue) that Puharich and the psychiatrist
McCulloch were working together. Puharich meets once Vice
President of the United States, Henry Wallace, who is a friend
of Rosen's. He applies to The Wallace Foundation for a grant and
receives it.

This is the last section in our four part series on Andrija
Puharich. In it we are covering the formation and first funding
of the Round Table Foundation of Electrobiology as well as have
discussing the rudiments of the odd tooth implant whose
development started in 1948.

In this final section we will reveal the presence of an unknown
agency that was connected with the Round Table Foundation from
the start. The inclusion of this agency may leave unanswered
questions about how it was that a man, known to be financed by
individuals connected to subversive organizations, came to be
granted security clearances by the United States Army.

By the time the laboratory in Maine was operational, enough
material and labor had been donated gratis to keep the total cost
of setup to $437.00, which even considering late 40's economics
is minuscule. The exact source of these donations is not, as of
this writing, documented.

Puharich's finances were certainly flourishing. There was the
$4,458.73 from Henry Wallace (interestingly Puharich when
reporting to the press of the day the happy news of that grant
dropped out Henry Wallace as his benefactor). In addition to the
Wallace money, Mrs. Zlatko Balakovic kicked in $2,000 and a Mr.
Walter C. Paine put in $3,000.

Although Walter C. Paine is still alive, I have had no luck at
all in getting a response from him to any query regarding the
Round Table Foundation. I have thus dubbed him Mr.
"I-don't-want-to-talk-about-it" Paine.

Another, later associate of the Foundation, Arthur Young, now
deceased, said that he had a friend named Walter in Camden who
was also part of the Foundation. He commented that Walter was an
oil executive at the time and preferred to remain anonymous.

We will continue without Mr. Paine's input. Hummphh.

Various pieces of high-tech equipment began to show up at the
lab. The cost of this equipment was also, at cost, or no charge.
We will mention only one such specialized piece of equipment in
this article, but there were others. The one piece we will
discuss seems to have made a tidy profit for Andrija.

John Cooney an electronics engineer from Yale, who had been
associated with the M.I.T. Radiation Laboratory and had helped
develop radar during the war, constructed it.

Cooney built a specially designed nerve stimulator. The function
of the unit was to stimulate nerves by controlled electrical

It happens that Andrija Puharich had written a letter to Henry
Wallace in 1948, which mentioned John Cooney. This was before he
had actually received the grant from the Wallace Fund.

"The Mr. John Cooney that I refer to in my program for research
is a rare man who fits into the program here perfectly. He is an
electronic engineer who was trained at Yale and M.I.T. He is of
my vintage and a rebel from society who came to Maine so that he
could be himself. He has built, and is running, a jewel of a
theatre in Waldoboro, and thus has an independent income. He is
working with me for no pay -- just for the sheer pleasure of it.
He is brilliant and ingenious. The equipment that I want to build
would cost about $40,000 on the open market, but he thinks that
he can do that job for about $4000.00 using war surplus material.
Thus the money that you are granting will go a very long way."

According to John Cooney, now 83, though, "This is all vintage
Puharich as I remember him -- beginning with the "brown-nosing"
of Mr. Wallace and concluding with the paragraph relating to me
personally -- which is 100% pure bull-shit from start to finish."

Far from being a rebel from society who came to Maine so that he
could be himself, Mr. Cooney pointed out that he had in fact
lived in Maine all of his life (except for WW II) on land that
had been in his family since the Indians owned it.

He denied having ever having an independent income, nor had he
worked for free and most certainly never for Puharich, nor did he
at any time have slightest connection with The Round Table

The "jewel of a theatre" mentioned had not been built by him but
by his father.

The nerve stimulator, actually a special variable pulse
electronic generator, had not cost $4,000 but in fact had cost
about $40.00, which according to Mr. Cooney is what he charged
Puharich and was duly paid for, concluding any dealings they had.

The puzzlement here is why Andrija Puharich would have written
such a letter, containing so many false details about a man he,
at least according to Cooney, actually had next to no dealings
with. If Henry Wallace had been so inclined he might have, with a
little checking, found out the truth.

Perhaps the answer lies in the last section of this report. In
it you will find that another man named Cooney was indeed
associated with Puharich. For now, let us continue with our

Though the Round Table Foundation's bottom line, dollar-wise,
was certainly on the upswing, it cannot account for all the
expenditures made. As you shall read, Puharich in some, yet
unknown, manner became the proud possessor of quite an estate.

A possible source of hidden money might have to do with a secret
project associated with the Round Table Foundation of
Electrobiology in 1949. Here we find a remaining personality,
quite wealthy, and a project whose claimed existence did not
surface for thirty years. Read on and you will understand why I
use the words "claimed existence" when speaking of that project.

The person we are interested in is a prolific and famous inventor
and radio pioneer by the name of John Hays Hammond, Jr., who at
that time was in his early seventies. Back then, he had more
patents issued to himself then any other man in the United

Hammond had developed radio remote control which many reference
works state serves as the basis for modern missile guidance
systems. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the inventor
established the Hammond Radio Research Laboratory in 1911.

By World War I, he had not only developed radio remote-control
but also incorporated within it a gyroscope enabling him to send
a yacht on a 120 mile round trip between Gloucester, Mass and
Boston. He also developed techniques to prevent enemy jamming of
remote control, as well as invented a radio-controlled torpedo
for coastal defense.

Hammond conducted some of the earliest experiments in frequency
modulation. He devised a amplifier that was used on
long-distance telephone lines.

During WW II he developed a variable-pitch ship propeller that
increased engine efficiency. His later developments include a
method of intelligence transmission called "Telespot."

He was president of the Hammond Research Corporation, a
consulting firm, and often served as research consultant to large

It is significant, considering the exploratory implant work, to
note that John Hays Hammond, Jr. had a belief that the mind could
be influenced by radio waves. He was also conversant with the
work of Nikola Tesla, the legally acknowledged creator of radio.

He was said, by Puharich, to have been the only student Tesla had
ever had. Bolstering that claim is the following fact. Following
his financial spiral down, Tesla lived, with John Hays Hammond,
Jr. at his estate. There, according to author and researcher
Gerry Vassilatos in his interesting book "Secrets of Cold War
Technology," the work they did lead to the some of the inventions
noted above.

Relating to John Hays Hammond, Jr., is the secret project that
Puharich claimed got underway in 1948, Project Penguin.

This, he avowed, was a Navy undertaking which ran a number of
years. Its purpose was to test individuals said to possess
"psychic powers." The project was headed by a man named Rexford

Puharich made this startling claim on the Geraldo Rivera show on
October 2, 1987. When challenged, he promised to send proof of
his allegation to another guest on the show, Marcello Truzzi, who
was in his usual role of open-minded skeptic. According to
Truzzi, the proof was never sent him.

The Navy flat out denies that it has any records at all of a
Project Penguin. Even an appeal, on my part, to the Judge
Advocate General produced no results. "Never heard of it," is
more or less the response back.

The research papers, letters, etc. of John Hays Hammond, Jr. are
now at Yale University. Queries to them regarding correspondence
between John Hays Hammond, Jr. and Andrija Puharich have likewise
produced negative results. This is puzzling. There should have
been at least one memorandum according to an article in the
International Journal of Neuropsychiatry is which Puharich wrote,
"In 1950 I sent a memorandum to Mr. John Hays Hammond, Jr. of
Gloucester, Mass., outlining the plan of an experimental

It would be exciting to think that the Department of the Navy
upon receiving my FOIA request regarding Project Penguin yelled
out something to the effect of, "Oh my God, he is on to us.
Shred the docs. Call Yale and tell them not to let that bastard
have anything."

I, regretfully, am prone to believe that they have no record of a
Project Penguin, nor of any correspondence regarding such. To my
mind that does not equate to the non-existence of such a project.
As in all things governmental, it depends on who you ask.

I have been able to confirm these pieces of information:
John Hays Hammond, Jr. did, in fact, carry out research on Eileen
Garrett, a world famous psychic of the day.

There was a Rexford Daniels in Camden, Maine, during those years.
He was a summer resident and both he and his family were well
thought of.

According to Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird in their book,
The Secret Life of Plants, Rexford Daniels owned a company named
Interference Consultants Company of Concord Massachusetts and as
of 1973 had been studying the problem of how proliferating
electromagnetic emissions interfere with one another and may work
harmful environmental effects on man. Daniels apparently became
convinced that there was a force in the universe which was itself
intelligent. "Daniels theorizes that this force operates through
a whole spectrum of frequencies not necessarily linked to the
electromagnetic spectrum and that human beings can mentally
interact with it."

There is ample evidence that individuals thought to have talent
as psychics began to show up at the Round Table Foundation, some
from overseas, some local talent and that these individuals were
indeed tested, extensively. One of the more notorious of these
individuals, Peter Hurkos, was brought to the US by a man with a
background in Naval intelligence.

There was one additional grant of money to the Round Table
Foundation in 1949.

The story about how this last bit of good fortune came to be was
told thusly: Puharich and his wife Virginia attended a square
Dance in Camden during the summer of 1949.

It was at this function that he met a Mr. and Mrs. Norman
Anderson, which led to him going to New York and meeting with
Charles Kaufman, then vice president in charge of research and
development at General Foods Corporation.

The results of that meeting were that General Foods decided to
break with its long standing policy of conducting research "in
house." They elected to farm out research work to Puharich at his
Round Table Foundation rather then use their own research
facility at Hoboken, New Jersey.

The corporation started him off with a Fellowship and a $5,000
grant to study taste physiology. The idea is that Andrija is to
work out a new method of measuring taste in animals, so it was
publicly announced.

General Foods also granted Andrija the use of their electron
microscope which was located at their Hoboken facility.

By 1950 Andrija Puharich had become a farmer, growing crops,
raising animals and maintaining a new laboratory, complete with
staff. All this on a wonderful new estate which boasted a 22 room
house, which would be used by lab technicians for a dormitory. At
the new digs was a new, large garage which was converted to hold
a store of laboratory animals. Puharich's brother William showed
up from Colorado to help with the research.

Either $5,000 went a fantastically long way in those days or some
unaccounted for funding showed up. I propose the latter of the

Consider the following list of individuals known to be associated
with Andrija Puharich and the Round Table Foundation, some of
whom we have already mentioned, some of whom would not show up in
time to make it into this article. They are: Norman Anderson
(mentioned), Charles Kettering (mentioned) and Raymond Zirkle
(mentioned), Jack Cooney (unmentioned), Kennith Cole
(unmentioned) and Shields Warren (unmentioned) General Foods
(mentioned), General Motors (mentioned).

Each of these individuals and the two organizations listed were
actually engaged in research for the Atomic Energy Commission.

General Foods, in 1947, was in receipt of isotopes provided for
research by the AEC. Specifically they were to test the
physiological availability and to follow the metabolism of Zn 65
and 69 as well as Cobalt 60 and Cu 64. They had been shipped
these on the premise that they would be administered to cattle in
a specific mineral supplement. The isotopes were delivered to
their Hoboken research facility.

It should be noted that research done during 1947 showed that a
pregnant dog, who had received ZN 65 (dosage undetermined),
produced radioactive pups. The pups were then "sacrificed" to see
in which organs the element had landed.

All of this is especially suspicious when one finds that the
animals being used for the taste research at the Round Table
Foundation died. At least one individual, then familiar with the
Foundation recalls burns on the bodies of some. As near as I have
been able to ascertain no special handling was carried out in
getting rid of these carcasses. They were simply left outside for
the local trash collection.

While I realize that this hardly makes a lawyer's case that
covert radiation research was taking place, one should consider
the strange construction of that barn which you have been told
about and his later connections to the Atomic Energy Commission
and its people which are outside the scope of this article but
will be in my book.

Consider also the new Cooney in the list above. Not the John
Cooney mentioned to Wallace, but Jack Cooney, who research shows
was in 1946 and 1947 Army Colonel Jack Cooney. By 1950 he was
Brigadier General Jack Cooney. We find him briefly mentioned as
being associated with the Round Table Foundation sans his
military rank or affiliation.

Cooney headed up the army medical branch of an organization
formed in July of 1947 called The Armed Forces Special Weapons

"The Armed Forces Special Weapons Project (AFSWP) established
by the War and Navy Departments, is charged in its charter with
responsibility for all military service functions of the
Manhattan Project as are retained under the control of the Armed
Forces including training of special personnel required, military
participation in the development of atomic weapons of all types
(to coordinate with the Commission) ... and developing and
effecting joint radiological safety measures in coordination with
established agencies." Source: Office Memorandum from Lt. Col. W.
B. Hutchinson Jr. to Brig. General James McCormack, Jr. Once
secret, this document was declassified in 1995.

The AFSWP has a curious administrative set-up. It has not one
chief, but two, one from the Navy holding the rank of Captain and
one from the Army holding the rank of Colonel. This duel set-up
might explain why my FOIA to the Navy regarding Operation Penguin
was strikingly unsuccessful. The records would not be in the
possession of the US Navy, they would have instead been housed
within the Atomic Energy Commission, probably one of the last
places one would think to look.

And, although not covered in this article, Andrija Puharich, was
known to be in the company of Dr. Shields Warren, while in
Washington D.C. This individual was, like Cooney, a key personnel
on the medical side of the radiation studies being carried out.

Puharich's earlier "medical discharge" said to have rendered him
unfit to serve in the military after completing medical training
happens to have coincided with the establishment of The Armed
Forces Special Weapons Project.

Mysteriously, his medical condition seems to have vanished as he
was "reinducted" into the Army about the time of the Korean War
and served as a Captain at the US Army Chemical Center, where he
got up to some very interesting activities.

If what I have stated is true, and it is, we are left with one
very perplexing question. What about the left-wing, red
sympathizing commie guys?

The answer my friend, is not blowing in the wind, it will be in
my book.

We leave you now with an incomplete story, hoping that enough
curiosity about Dr. Andrija Puharich, his activities, and his
marvelous tooth implant has been created that you will consider
the purchase of my upcoming book, tentatively entitled "Andrija,
Aliens and the Square Wave."

Thus I will be the richer and you will be the wiser.

Summing up: The Round Table Foundation of Electrobiology began
to flourish. A considerable misrepresentation as to cost of
equipment is shown. Project Penguin undertaken by the Navy is
also claimed. A grant from General Foods and the activities of
associates reveals the connection to The Armed Forces Special
Weapons Project.
