See the case file.



Ussel, 13 (A.F.P.). -- The gendarmes of the Bugeat brigade, learning this morning by the public rumor that a farmer from the hamlet of Mouriéras, commune of Bugeat (Corrèze), Mr. André Mazeaud, had conversed with the passenger of a "flying saucer", went to the farmer's to confirm this rumor.

Mr. Mazaud told them that on September 10, at 8:30 p.m., returning from his fields, he had met on a path, 1,300 meters from his house, an unknown individual of normal height, wearing a helmet without earmuffs, who squeezed his hand and kissed him, uttering unintelligible words.

The man then climbed into a cigar-shaped, unlit apparatus, three to four meters long, which, taking off vertically, took off in a westerly direction, making no more noise than a bee.

Mr. Mazaud then declares that he did not want to talk about this story, because he was afraid that he would be laughed at; he nevertheless confided the matter to his wife who, in turn, informed the neighbors, and so the gendarmerie learned about it.

The lieutenant of the gendarmerie commanding the section went to the place where no trace was found.
