EPINAL. -- A worker from Saint-Rémy (Vosges), Mr. Louis Ujvari, 40, told yesterday to the gendarmes of Raon-l'Etape that, last Wednesday, around 3 a.m., while he was going to his work, he was stopped on the road by a bulky and medium-sized individual, wearing a gray jacket, wearing shiny badges on his shoulders.

The man spoke an unknown language. Mr. Ujvari, a Czech national, tried to speak Russian on the off chance. His interlocutor understood perfectly: "Yes, am I," he asked him, "in Italy or in Spain?" He then inquired about the distance from the German border, then asked for the time. The worker having indicated to him that it was approximately 2:30 a.m., the man took out of his jacket a watch which marked 4 o'clock in the morning.

He ordered the worker to move on. Ujvari soon saw in the middle of the road, a craft in the shape of two plates overturned against each other, from which emerged a sort of periscope.

Arrived about thirty meters from the craft, which was about 1.50 m high and 2.50 m wide, the stranger told him to move away. But, looking back from time to time, Mr. Ujvari could see the machine slowly rise vertically with the sound of a sewing machine. When it reached an altitude of 500 meters, it took the horizontal and disappeared in the direction of the South.
