Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

An Alien like Dolores Barrios…


by Luis Ruiz Noguez

One of the most curious UFO conferences of all time happened on August 7-8, 1954. This meeting was celebrated at the top of Mount Palomar, at an altitude over 6,000 feet, in front of the Skyline Lodge.

The congress was promoted by three of the most famous contactees: George Adamski, Truman Bethurum and Daniel Fry. More than a thousand persons attended, from American journalists, FBI agents, saucer witnesses and just the curious.

Each of the contactees told their own experiences and took the occasion to sell their autographed books.

At Adamski’s turn, the “professor” explained that the Venusians were much alike human beings. So much so they had infiltrated our society and were living in the big cities. He also presented a painting with an artistic depiction of a Venusian.

At the end of the first day there was some commotion when the audience noticed the presence of two men and a woman with an exotic appearance. The rumor started that they were disguised Venusians. Those that Adamski had talked about a few hours before.

One of the men used glasses. The three were white and the woman had long blonde hair, but the strangest thing were her black eyes.


One of the attendees asked them, without much embarrassment: “Are you or are you not Venusians?”. The woman, smiling, calmly replied. “No”.

"- Why are you here?
– Because we are interested in this subject.
– Do you believe in flying saucers?
– Yes.
– Is it true that, as Mr. Adamski says, that they come from Venus?
– Yes. They are from Venus.”

At this meeting the Brazilian journalist João Martins was also present, and he interviewed them too, obtaining the following information:

She was called Dolores Barrios, and designed dresses; the names of her friends were Donald Morand and Bill Jackmart [they were musicians]. The three of them lived in Manhattan Beach, California.

Martins asked if he could photograph them, but they refused. They were bothered and tired of being called Venusians. According to Martins, Dolores Barrios looked very much like the painting that Adamski had shown.

For the rest of the conference the three became isolated and didn’t talk with the other attendees. In the following day, at the end of the meeting, the strange visitors let themselves be photographed.

Nowadays it’s said that Martins photographed Dolores using a flash, surprising her. Dolores was scared and ran to the forest. Soon afterwards, a flying saucer was seen rocketing upwards, but no one was able to capture a photo.

[It’s just a fancy story. From the original story with the photos published by Martins in O Cruzeiro, October 1954, we know that they were present at the two days of the event, and there’s another photo of Dolores, in full, along with photos of her friends.

Needless to say, as Dolores herself already told, she wasn’t a Venusian. Her blonde hair (bleached?) would not be very pretty at Venus scorching temperatures and corrosive atmosphere. And although she does look similar to Adamski’s painting, one has to remember that the painting was of Orthon. A Venusian male.]

    Could be, if the story is true, that these are from a higher dimension Venus (5th dimensions). As a kind of a psychic, did sense very peculiar alien frequencies from all of them.

    This woman is very exotic , and odd-looking at the same time. It’s almost like she has both ( or some sort of mix ) the characteristics of a African and Caucasian person. As a man , my physical interest in her is heightened ( she’s hot ). My intuition tells me that she is , or was different than most people , but this doesn’t make her a alien. If she is , or was a Venusian , I’d like to visit that planet in one of my next incarnations

    Look…. this is 1954 and I find nothing abnormal about this picture of a slightly above average looking 20-30 year old female.
    Ive seen women who look similar to this female across the country.
    Venusian? Now, come on folks! Not hardly. Her companions are slightly built yes, but alien, I think not.
    Listen, if extraterrestrials have nothing better to do than hang out at George Adamski’s convention, than I don’t know what to say about that. It’s a long way to come to be bored, wouldn’t you say?

    Dolores is Orthon. Here’s why:

    1. Adamski mentioned in ‘Flying Saucers Have Landed’ (FSHL) that Orthon had an androgynous look: “In fact, in different clothing he could easily have passed for an unusually beautiful woman; yet he definitely was a man.” Also, note that Dolores is flat-chested and has a subtle masculine air in the standing picture.

    2. Long tapered fingers typical of extra-terrestrial humans. Again from FSHL: “His [Orthon’s] hands were slender, with long tapering fingers like the beautiful hands of an artistic woman.” Check out Dolores’s right hand carefully in the standing pic: though her fingers are clenched, you can see they’re unusually long and spindly, and her thumb is tapered to a point.

    3. Orthon’s long hair. Adamski mentioned in “Inside the Space Ships” (ISS) that the extra-terrestrial men generally wore their hair short and that “none wore long hair as did Orthon, my Venusian friend of the first meeting. I have since learned that he had a particular reason for wearing his hair in this style.” He did not elaborate why Orthon had long hair, but we can assume that the he might have needed it to masquerade as a woman while carrying out his mission on Earth.

    4. Their extreme reluctance to be photographed. Adamski explains Orthon’s similar reluctance in FSHL: “I could easily understand his desire not to be photographed, because there were a few distinguishing points about his facial features. Normally these would not be noticed. But in a photograph they would be conspicuous and serve as points of identification for his brothers who have come to Earth.” One feature could be the vertical central forehead ridge which you can see in the enlarged versions of the photos above of all three ET suspects.

    5. Adamski’s last contact with Orthon, Ramu and Firkon was on 23rd Aug 1954 (ISS) after which both Ramu and Firkon returned to their home planets, having completed their Earth mission. The above Palomar conference was held on 7-8th August, 2 weeks earlier, and it stands to reason that not only was Dolores Orthon, Donald Morand and Bill Jackmart were probably Ramu and Firkon in disguise, who were living in California at the time. Adamski’s descriptions of Ramu and Firkon in ISS do fit the two men in the photo above.

    You can see a big line in the Dolores forehead and one that man. Like someone who fixes a false noise.

    Você pode ver uma linha na testa da Dolores e na testa de um deles. Algo como um suporte para um nariz falso.

    That’s a line from the back of the page, probably the space between two columns of text. But this is my claim, and I really should present the article to prove this — I intend to do so, eventually. Until then, take this as an alternative interpretation to that line.

    “It’s almost like she has both ( or some sort of mix ) the characteristics of a African and Caucasian person”

    The woman does not appear to have any negro African ancestry. If she did then she would have hair texture similar to a negro African person, her hair is bone strait. Even people with small percentages of negro ancestry usually have wooly textured hair, not strait hair.

    Broader nosed and larger lip are not only seen among negro people, they can also be seen among Polynesian, south American natives and in some East Asian people.

    Her last name Barrios is Spanish so it’s more likely that she has some kind of South American Indian ancestry.

    Her blonde hair is probably not real, so she may not even have any European ancestry.

    I think it’s possible that George Adamski might have hired these people to stir up suspicion and get people talking.
