WASHINGTON, Jan. 16 (AP) ? A retired rear admiral, once head of the Navy's guided-missile program, said today reliable reports indicated that there are objects coming into our atmosphere at very high speeds.

Admiral Delmer S. Fahrney told a news conference that no agency in this country or Russia is able to duplicate at this time the speeds and accelerations which radars and observers indicate these flying objects are to achieve.

There are signs that an intelligence directs such objects because the way they fly, the admiral went on.

They are not entirely actuacted by automatic equipment, he said. The way they change position in formations and override each other would indicate that their motion is directed.

An Air Force spokesman said that service was still investigating all reports but had found no concrete evidence that there were flying saucers. He said that a majority of the reports had been found upon checking to have some logical explanation, but that a percentage remained unexplained.

Admiral Fahrney called a news conference following an organizational meeting of a new private groupe, the National Aerial Committee on Aerial Phenomena, of which he is board chairman.
