Paris, October 5.

Several Parisians said they saw this afternoon flying saucers flying in the sky of the capital. Passers-by claimed to have seen one around 4:30 p.m., near the Porte Dorée.

Mr. Pierre Allouis, cardboard representative was going to his business by taxi, when the vehicle was stopped by a red light, hearing, he said, a shrill whistling sound, he looked through the door and saw a flying machine which was escaping high, leaving in its wake a plume of smoke.

Mr. Allouis describes the saucer as a disc larger than a normal plane and silver in color.

The same testimony is given by Mr. Gilbert Bacon, living at 25 Fg St Antoine and by Mr. Paul Julien, house painter, who lives at 3, rue de la Pompe, the latter, however, believes that it was not a saucer but a flying wing which has the shape of a triangle with rounded edges.

At Le Bourget, it is explained that, given the intensity of air traffic, it is impossible to confirm by radar the passage of the craft at an insufficiently specified hours.
