“Dr. Wilcox explained to me that he had administered a series of “mild” electroshocks to Airl in an attempt to subdue her long enough to allow the military authorities time to evaluate the situation and determine what to do with Airl.
He asked me to attempt to communicate with Airl, telepathically.
I tried for several minutes but couldn’t sense any communication from Airl. I couldn’t even sense whether Airl was present in the body any longer!
“I think you must have killed her”, I said to the doctor.
Dr. Wilcox told me that they would keep Airl under observation and that I would be asked to return later to try to establish communication with Airl again.”
“The next morning I was escorted from my quarters, under the guard of four MPs, to the interview room. Airl’s overstuffed chair had been removed from the room and replaced by a small desk and several office chairs. I was asked to sit down and wait to be interviewed. After a few minutes Dr. Wilcox came into the office together with another man wearing a plain business suit. The man introduced himself as John Reid.
Dr. Wilcox explained to me that Mr. Reid had been flown in from Chicago at the request of my superior officers to conduct a lie detector [ii] (Footnote) test on me! My surprise at this statement was so obvious, that Dr. Wilcox noticed that I was obviously taken aback, and insulted, at the insinuation that I had ever lied about anything!
Nonetheless, Mr. Reid began to set up his polygraph device on the desk next to my chair, while Dr. Wilcox continued to explain, in a calm voice, that the test was being administered for my own protection. Since all of the interviews with the alien had been conducted telepathically, and Airl had declined to read and attest that the typed transcripts were accurate, the truth and accuracy of the statements contained in the transcripts depended entirely on my personal word alone. There was no other reliable way to test the accuracy of the transcripts without submitting me to a battery of tests and psychological examinations to determine, in the opinion of “experts”, meaning himself, whether the transcripts should be taken seriously, or not.
The tone of his voice said very clearly, “or dismissed as the delusional ranting of a mere woman!”
Mr. Reid proceeded to strap a rubber tube around my chest, as well as an ordinary blood-pressure cuff around my upper arm. He then placed electrodes on the fingers and surfaces of my hands. He explained that he would be very objective during the interview because he had been thoroughly trained in scientific interrogation. This training was supposed to make his interrogation free from human error.
Mr. Reid explained to me that, in response to the questions he and Dr. Wilcox were going to ask me, that actual physiological changes would be transmitted through a small panel unit. The readings would then be tracked on moving graph paper, which he placed beside the machine on the desk. The parallel graphs on the paper would then be correlated and interpreted by Mr. Reid, with the “expert” assistance of Dr. Wilcox, to determine whether or not I was lying.”

[i] “…introduced himself as Mr. John Reid …” “John Edward Reid, American criminologist developed a Polygraph in 1945 which was a scientific recording device designed to register a person’s bodily responses to being questioned. Popularly known as a lie detector, the polygraph has been used chiefly in criminal investigations, although it is also used in employment and security screening practices. Because no machine can unerringly recognize when a person is lying, the polygraph results are used in conjunction with other evidence, observations, and information. Emotional stress reflected by this test, for instance, need not be due to lying. On the other hand, a subject may be a pathological liar and therefore show no measurable bodily responses when giving false answers. Ordinary nervousness, individual physical or mental abnormalities, discomfort, excessive pretest interrogation, or indifference to a question also affect test accuracy. The polygraph can, however, provide a basis for an evaluation of whether or not the subject’s answers are truthful. This test has also been helpful in exonerating innocent persons accused of crimes. A polygraph is actually several instruments combined to simultaneously record changes in blood pressure, pulse, and respiration. The electrical conductivity of the skin’s surface can also be measured—increased sweat-gland activity reduces the skin’s ability to carry electrical current.” — Reference: Wikipedia.org

“Dr. William Moulton Marston (May 9, 1893 – May 2, 1947) was an American psychologist, feminist theorist, inventor, and comic book author who created the character Wonder Woman. Two strong women, his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston and Olive Byrne, (who lived with the couple in a polyamorous relationship), served as exemplars for the character and greatly influenced her creation. Dr. William Moulton Marston is credited as the creator of the systolic blood-pressure test used in an attempt to detect deception, which became one component of the modern polygraph. According to their son, Marston’s wife, Elizabeth Holloway Marston, was also involved in the development of the systolic blood-pressure test: “According to Marston’s son, it was his mother Elizabeth, Marston’s wife, who suggested to him that ‘When she got mad or excited, her blood pressure seemed to climb’. This would be the basis for Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth. The FBI considered William Moulton Marston, who invented the lie detector and created the comic book character Wonder Woman under the pseudonym Charles Moulton, to be a ‘phony’ and a ‘crackpot.’ He is alleged to have misrepresented the result of a study he conducted for the Gillette razor company in 1938, for which he reportedly received some $30,000, a handsome sum in those days. Despite these misgivings, the FBI today uses Marston’s creation (the polygraph, not the Lasso of Truth) to guide investigations as well as to screen applicants and employees.” — Reference: Wikipedia.org
