The article below was published in the daily newspaper Var-Matin - République, France, on October 1, 1954.

In France, in Morocco, in Algeria, in Denmark, in Sweden...
Increasingly numerous saucers, cigars, discs and other machines are moving
(the witnesses say)

Perpignan, September 30. -- A truck driver who carried out the collecting of milk yesterday morning around Cabesty (the Pyrenees Orientales) stated to have seen, in front of his vehicle, a "shining sphere" of "bluish" color which moved at an altitude of approximately 150 meters while producing a "very soft buzzing sound".

Having stopped his truck, the driver managed to observe the evolutions of the machine during nearly a quarter of hour, then suddenly, it rose in the sky and allegedly disappeared in direction of the sea.

A flying saucer was reportedly seen in Auge (Deux Sèvres). In addition Mr. Picaud directing a Sainte Pezenne brewery stated to have seen as he drove on the road of Fontenay-le-Comte, a curious disc of a sparkling yellow color.

The residents of Landeda and Aberwrac'h (the Finistère) saw yesterday evening at high altitude, a machine of circular form resembling a flying saucer.

Several residents of the commune of Rebais stated to have seen a strange machine, very shining, circulating after the fall of night, in the sky, above Rebais.

The witnesses specified that the apparatus which circulated very gently, had then moved towards Coulommiers, after having increased its speed, and it disappeared.

The morning of the day before yesterday, CRS [police corps] also saw a luminous disc in the sky above Vaudroy.

Mrs. Picot, of la Baume, domiciled in Montpellier, stated to have seen, at an altitude of approximately 1500 meters, an apparatus in the shape of a cigar, shining and which appeared surrounded by a halation. The machine, which she managed to observe one minute approximately, disappeared suddenly in the direction of the east, without making noise nor leaving traces.

In Morocco and in Algeria

Witnesses worthy of faith saw yesterday evening, in the sky of Kouriga, locality at approximately 130 km of Casablanca, a machine of circular form at a high altitude and a high speed and which seemed to spit blue-green flames.

A machine of lengthened form was seen yesterday evening, towards 08:30 p.m., in the sky of Safi, by witnesses worthy of faith. The "cigar" moved at a high speed, from the East to the North-West. It was surrounded by a bluish light and left a luminous trail behind. The witnesses claimed that this machine had no relationship with a jet plane.

In Denmark

Numerous residents of the town of Strib (Fionia) claimed yesterday evening to have seen "a reddish yellow machine whose form recalled a cigar moving at very high altitude and leaving tongues of fire behind".

Other "luminous machines" were seen these last three evenings in Fionia and Sweden.
