The saucers

Guéret, 19. - A farmer from the village of La Vaureille, Mr. Aimé Bousard, 47, told the gendarmes of Aubusson of the "strange encounter" he made when he returned from the village of Alleyrat (Creuse).

"At the place called "La Madière", he said, I saw a shape moving on the side of the road. I stopped to better observe the individual. The latter, who was lowered, got up suddenly, pointing at me two powerful lamps projecting a very dense light blue light. He also had, on each side of the head, a lamp of light green color which emitted much weaker rays than the others. He seemed to be 1.60 m tall and I thought at first that he was wearing a diving suit.

"Suddenly, under the effect of a pressure comparable to a breath I was thrown across the road where I stayed ten minutes without being able to shout or call for help. The light blue lamps remained pointed at me. They finally went out. The being crossed the road and suddenly disappeared. I felt and I still feel pain in my legs and in my right hand."

At the place indicated by the cultivator, the gendarmes noted that the earth had been freshly moved. The grass had been uprooted over an area of 70 cm in diameter. No footprints were found.


Rome, 23. - Three employees of the Modena police prefecture have made statements concerning the appearance of a strange "craft" in the sky of this city. They claimed that the craft, after "zigzagging" for several kilometers, stopped just above the airfield by launching luminous rockets in all directions, after which it reportedly went away vertiginously towards the Apennines.

In Florence, hundreds of people who attended a training session of the local soccer team, as well as the players of this team, claimed that several white "imprecise objects" crossed the sky in formation going from North to South. These objects included "Cigars" and "Discs".

Another machine, of cylindrical shape and of a very marked pink color, crossed, according to 3 witnesses, the sky of Verola at high speed, in the North-West direction.
