A city council man states this:

A mysterious craft, in the shape of a chick brooder, landed in la Seille-Arraye-et-Han

(From our correspondant). -- On Sunday night, listening to Radio-Luxembourg's "flying saucers" report, it could be remarked that the declaration of the former Vosges legionnaire, published in the "Republican East" a few days ago, was completely distorted and ridiculed . And yet, almost at the same hour, an inhabitant of our village had just found himself in the presence of a saucer.

Here are the facts: On Sunday evening, around 6:30 p.m., Mr. Germain Mahou, 30, a farmer and councilman from Arraye-et-Han ( coming from Aulnois (the Moselle), was following a deserted pathway on a bicycle and arrived at the place called Fontaine Brauillon, territory of Ajoncourt, less than a kilometer from Arraye, when he perceived an unusual gleam in the middle of the road. Having gone down from the bicycle, Mr. Mahou approached and, to his great surprise, found himself in the presence of an apparatus about two meters in diameter, resembling, he told us, a large chick breeder: the craft, of a height of avout 1.50 meters, had an entirely phosphorescent hull and the lighting, around the craft was relatively dim. He had scarcely uttered these words: "What's this thing?" that the apparatus ascended vertically, leaving behind it, for a short moment, a luminous trail, then it disappeared.

The good faith of Mr. Mahou can not be doubted, for us, any discussion is superfluous, the saucers exist and surely their origin does not have to be sought towards another planet. The mystery must also be elucidated in "high quarters" (without play on words), where one pretends to ignore it for reasons that are not within our jurisdiction.
