Clampers Inaugurate The 'Integratron!'

UFO News

Earthlings Extol Landers Rejuvenation Machine

     LANDERS - Cars lined both sides of the road outside the Integratron, which was blazing a brilliant white in the morning sun this weekend. About 400 Clampers, members of the fraternal organization E. Clampus Vitus, clad in red T-shirts and black hats, mingled and drank beer. They gathered, in all their finery, for the dedication of the Integratron as a Morongo Basin historical site on Sunday.

     It's safe to say that aside from their function assigning historical landmarks in the West, this group of spirited individuals likes to get together with the fraternal order for a good party. It's been said that it's unclear whether they're a historical drinking society or a drinking historical society.

     The Billy Holcombe Chapter 1069 of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E. Clampus Vitus, in cooperation with the Morongo Basin Historical Society, recognized both the Integratron and its builder, George Van Tassel, part mad scientist, part influential member of the 1950s UFO contactee movement, for their unique and unusual history.

     The plaque reads, "The Integratron is the creation of George Van Tassel and is based on the design of Moses' Tabernacle, the writings of Nikola Tesla, and telepathic directions from extraterrestrials."

     Historical tidbits refer to the Giant Rock airport opened by Van Tassel in 1947, his alleged contact with extraterrestrials initiated in 1953 and 17 spacecraft conventions he held for UFO enthusiasts.
