Vallee writes in his 'Anatomy of a Phenomenon' in 1965 on page 153: Are these sightings coherent, and what are the characteristics most often attributed to their 'entities' by the authors of such reports? What do we obtain if we seek to extract the chief features from these accounts? Let us hurry to claim that 'little green men', which everybody seems so fond of, have never been described in reality. "It is a curious fact," remarks I. Davis, "that it seems impossible to discover the exact origin of the word 'green' with saucer occupant reports. Where and when the expression 'little green men' was first used, by whom, why or in connection with what case, has not yet been determined." Our own efforts to clarify this point have proved equally vain. If we gather all reports that seem to present some guarantee of reliability, and if we try to extract from them a coherent interpretation, we have to divide the alleged occupants into two groups. On one hand, we find descriptions of men (more than fifty have been described in about twenty cases) similar to us in height and behavior; on the other hand, many accounts speak of "dwarfs" measuring between three and four feet in height... Seems like that jury has been out a long time...
