Heavy sightings in Italy during the winter of 1978 inspire suspicions
in the San Fernando Valley, California, that lights in their sky
are somehow responsible for the gas crisis. OPEC declines comment.

citizens to South Korean and Iranian climates, as aid flows. Nothing

Sightings of disks on the rise, abductions frequent, xenophobia
confused--the media is silent.
