Storyline

In 1922 the town of Chico, California was pelted by rocks falling from an empty sky. A writer who called himself The Ghost took credit for the phenomena, but was never identified. Similarly, in 1917 a stranger appeared to government officials in Washington, D. C. and demonstrated a new fuel made from water that could power an auto engine. After his successful exhibition, the stranger vanished as quickly as he had appeared. The FBI and Secret Service searched for months and could never find him. Written by richardann

Unique episode takes on two different cases in the half-hour format with successful results, as it focuses on two mysterious people causing inexplicable events. The first is set in Chico California in 1922, where an unknown writer called "The Ghost" somehow drops rocks from the sky repeatedly on the town, in full view of its citizens, including newspapermen. The second concerns a mysterious man named Charles Elton who approaches a government official and demonstrates how he created a pellet that can turn water into gasoline! Before it can be purchased, Elton disappears, never to be heard from again... Where are these men? Most intriguing and memorable entry.
