The Man Asked for "Gasoil"

Saucer Seeks Fuel in France

PARIS, Oct. 14 (Reuters) -- A "flying saucer" pilot was reported last night to have tried to refuel his 12-foot-long torpedo-shaped machine at the expense of the French state railroad.

A railwayman who works at Montlucon station, Central France, says he saw the pilot and his machine outside a Diesel oil tank there.

He asked the man, who either was covered with hair or was wearing a long hairy overcoat, what he wanted. The man said something the railroader could not make out, but he thought he heard the word "gasoil."

The workman started off to report to the station master, but before he had gone 100 yards the machine took off and vanished.

This is the latest report of a spate of French accounts of mysterious flying objects - saucers, bells, mushrooms and other shapes.
