UFOs in the daily Press:

The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Nord-Eclair, Roubaix, Nord, France, page 2, on October 1st, 1954.

See the case file.



If you meet Martians or any other passenger of mysterious craft, go your way whistling, looking totally cool, and, above all, do not say a word to anyone about your adventure.

So for Mr. Marius Dewilde, the impromptu visit he received, on Saturday evening, at Quarouble, was the beginning of the troubles.

There were the gendarmes, the various police forces, the journalists, the photographers, the work buddies, the neighbors, the radio reporters, the cinematographic news reporters, the grocer, Mr. the mayor, the close relatives and distant cousins, etc...

That's not all. Mr. Dewilde occupies a gatekeeper's house. And he is not a gatekeeper. The S.N.C.F. had the attention drawn to his case, he was asked to leave the premises.

Don't talk to Mr. Dewilde any more of saucer stories: he's disgusted with them.
