The flying saucers

Mr Gabriel Chupeau, mason resident of Le Paillat, claims to have see, in the night of saturday, the myterious elongated apparatus which haunts all the minds.

[Ref. bb1:] GERARD BARTHEL AND JACQUES BRUCKER:

The two authors indicate, in order to illustrate their opinion on the poor content of the saucer reports in the press, the following extract of which they indicate that the source is the newspaper La Vendée Libre for October 17, 1954

"Mr Gabriel Chapeau, mason, resident of Paillat, claims to have seen the mysterious machine which haunts all the brains."

Further on, the two authors note this case of October 16, 1954:

"La Caillère-Saint-Hilaire - 85 - night: no investigation."

And finally they comment about the witness: "how lucky he was, if only he had been a ufologist."
