UFOs in the daily Press:


The article below was published in the daily newspaper L'Alsace, France, on November 14, 1954.



A mysterious red ray swept the sky of Forli

Forli, Nov. 13. -- A mysterious red ray swept the sky above the area of Forli. This beam, directed from top to bottom, came on two tractors, a gasoline tractor, and a Diesel tractor, rolling at little distance one from the other.

The first, provided with a magneto, stopped at once when it was caught in the beam, while the diesel continued to function. The four farm labourers who were on the tractors, frightened, went to hide in undergrowth. The ray then continued to search the sky during one hour approximately. It was seen by many people some of which were terrified, too, and ocked themselves up in their homes. This unexplainable phenomenon, following the passage of discs or flying cigars, lately, caused a sharp sensation in the population of the area.

The "flying saucers" association born in Holland

The Hague, Nov. 13. -- An association bearing the name of "flying saucers" was founded in Voorburg, close to the Hague. Its object is the study of these air phenomena and it will create a reception committee, similar to those which were created in France and Belgium, "to receive the first Martian".

The association will publish a monthly review for its members, where all observations of saucers mentioned in the world press will be published. Its founder, Mr. C. J. Dorsman, recognized besides that he had never seen a saucer, but he expressed his conviction that these machines exist and that his association will be able to help to solve their mystery.

With regard to the committee of reception of the Martians, Mr. Dorsman stated that it is necessary to avoid at all costs being aggressive, and, on the contrary, to try to tie bonds of friendship with the passengers of the saucers, whether they come from Mars or elsewhere.
