Frenchman Hurt In 'Space War'

Tain-l'Hermitage, France, Nov 5 (Reuter) -- The first casualty in a war between French peasants and "Martians" was reported here today.

A grape picker mistook a fellow worker for a visitor from outer space in the dark last night and attacked him so savagely with a club that one ear was torn off nefore the attakcer realized his mistake.

It was the lastest in the series of incidents rampant throughout France. Several French peasants have reported seeing flying saucers and spacemen land and a number of pitchfork-wielding peasants have ambushed fellow countrymen.

Until last nigth either their aim had been bad or the intended victim was able to shout out in passable French in time.
