Casimir's saucer...

Four Martians came to shake hands with a somainois and spoke to him ... in Chinese!

The Ostrevent region is in turmoil since last Friday at 07:30 p.m.: a flying saucer landed on the National Road of Douai and there were four occupants inside. The name of the "spectator" being cited, we went to see him.

He is Casimir Scymure, minor at La FossÚ Sainte-Marie, residing in Ecaillon, Hallois street, 125.

Here's what he said:

I was riding on Friday at 19:15 p.m. my motorcycle, on the Douai National Road in Valenciennes, on the territory of Ecaillon, when I saw arriving in front of me a highly illuminated craft in the shape of a submarine. At the approach of this thing, my motorbike stopped suddenly. I could see inside four occupants of small size and samell furnitures. One of them got out and approached me; he shook my hand, the top of his head was at my shoulder's height. Needless to say I was seized with fright especially since I did not understand anything of what he said, it sounded like Chinese, and also I was dazzled by the luminosity of the craft. This lasted a few minutes. The occupant returned to the saucer that flew away at a tremendous pace.

Mr. Scymure is in France since 1925, he is a French citizen and his brother is settled as baker in Ecaillon.

We interviewed him for our readers, and anyone can go to him, he will tell his saucer story.
