DAILY SAUCERS

A (FAKE) SAUCER EMPTIES THE CHURCH

The residents of Teil, undoubtedly upset, to find themselves ignored by the Martians and their saucers, set up yesterday a hoax which appears to have caused a certain commotion in the southern districts of Teil and certain villages of the low Ardeche. An object having the appearances of an authentic saucer was seen above Teil in the morning of Sunday, then the object disappeared in space from a few minutes in the direction of Valvignères. The inhabitants of this village were so much moved by the appearance of the object that a religious office, celebrated at that hour in the church of this small village located at 25 kilometers of Teil, had to be interrupted.
