BODY: President Clinton said last month that, "as far as I know, an alien spacecraft did not crash in Roswell, N.M., in 1947. ... If the United States Air Force did recover alien bodies, they didn't tell me about it either, and I want to know."

Laurance Rockefeller wants to tell him. The 85-year-old philanthropist has funded a 150-page study of "the Roswell Incident." This month, he's due to send it to White House Science adviser John Gibbons, as well as every U.S. congressman and senator.

"The Best Available Evidence" features testimony from former military officials and astronauts that contradicts Air Force denials of an alien landing, says Michael Luckman, director of the New York Center for UFO Research.

Last summer, Rockefeller reportedly tried to get Hillary Clinton aboard the UFO issue when the President was vacationing in Wyoming.

While he waits for some answers, the Commander in Chief can satisfy his curiosity by ordering a 4-foot long "replica of the Roswell alien" from the Sharper Image Christmas catalogue. The spaceman, who sleeps in his own lighted chamber, is just $ 1,695.
