Memorandum for Mr. LaddMr. ________ also discussed this matter with Colonel L. H. Forney of MID. Colonel Forney indicated that it was his attitude that inasmuch asArmy or Navy experiments, the matter is of interest to the FBI. He statit has been established that the flying disks are not the result of any ed that he was of the opinion that the Bureau, if at all possible,lieve it should go into these investigationsshould accede to General Schulgen's request. SWR:AJB ADDENDUM I would recommend that we advise the Army that the Bureau does not b e, it being noted that a great bulk of those alleged discs reported found have been pranks. It is not believed that the Bureau would accomplish anything by going into these investigations. DML (Clyde Tolson) - I think we should do this. (Dated 7/15)(J. Edgar Hoover) - I would do it but before agreeing to it we must insistupon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the SW case the Armygrabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination [emphasis added]

The Hoover alleged statement is interpreted to be : "I would do it but before agreeing to it we must insist upon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the LA case the Army grabbed it & would not let us have it for cursory examination" (emphasis added)
Coming right after the famous Roswell, NM UFO story, it is assumed this is a complaint of that case occurring in the American south west. Around July 10, 1947 other UFO incidences were being investigated in Michigan, hoaxed event in Shreveport, LA on July 7, and five years before the famous "battle of Los Angeles" in Feb of 1942.
If the FBI memo is valid, if the scrawled was there before its release, then the item grabbed by the Army could have been "La" (Louisiana), "Sw" (southwest) or, "La" (Los Angeles). Each one presents an intriguing possibility.
