THE "SAUCERS"
PHOTOS
WERE ONLY
A HOAX

A major daily newspaper in the Eastern region published yesterday three large photos of flying saucers, which had been given to them by a professional photographer, J. Guérault, working in Sarreguemines (Moselle).

The image hunter had recounted at length how he had been able to approach the craft posed in a meadow.

However, the famous photos had been taken by a student who, wanting to set up a hoax at the expense of some friends, had "shot" a lamp shade. He then gave his film to develop to Mr. J. Guérault. The latter quickly sold the photos.
