Around Epinal

The pilot of the saucer
spoke in Russian

EPINAL, October 22. - The file on flying saucers has just been enriched with new testimony due to a worker from the Vosges mountains, Mr. Louis Ujvari. The latter, a former legionnaire of Slovak origin, aged 40, works in an industrial establishment, every morning from 3 a.m. on.

Wednesday morning, around 2:30 a.m., on his way to work, he met an individual carrying a revolver who, in an unknown language, ordered him to stop.

Ujvari, speaking several languages, he proposed Russian and was thus able to initiate a conversation with the individual who, obviously, sought to locate the place where he was.

The stranger, who was heavy, about 1.63 meters tall, was wearing a bright jacket on which the worker could notice the presence of shiny objects on the shoulders.

When the conversation was over, the man ordered Ujvari to move forward, still under the threat of a revolver.

It was then that the worker saw, placed on the road, a mysterious object: the saucer had the shape of two plates placed one on top of the other. A sort of periscope emerged from it. The machine was about 1.60 meters high and 2.50 meters in diameter.

The worker heard his interlocutor say goodbye to him fairly briefly and continued on his way; he stopped a hundred meters away and then a vertical headlight pierced the night. The mysterious machine went due south where the worker could follow it with his eyes for about 500 meters.

Ujvari had not dared to tell anyone about his mysterious encounter. It was only yesterday that he alerted the mayor of his commune, then the gendarmes. An investigation is currently underway.
