"Saucers" drop anti-communist leaflets over Czechoslovakia

VIENNA. -- "Flying saucers" regularly reported for some time in Austria are, according to the "Bild Telegraph", unmanned devices used by certain powers to drop anti-communist leaflets over Czechoslovakia. This newspaper reports, in fact, that leaflets written in the Czech language were found near Eferding, in Upper Austria (Soviet zone), after the passage of two "luminous discs" whose maneuvers were observed by two gendarmes of a nearby community.

These leaflets distributed by a group of immigrants belonging to the "Czechoslovak opposition" movement invite Czechoslovak peasants to leave agricultural communities and state cooperatives...

Two other daily newspapers also mention the testimony of more than one peasant who claims to have seen a "saucer" taken by the beam of a projector from the Soviet D.C.A.

The round in France continues

PARlS. -- In the meantime, the flying saucers continue their round in the sky of France.

A truck driver saw a "shining globe" of bluish color "which was moving at an altitude of about 150 meters producing a very soft humming sound." This was near Cabestany (Pyrénées Orientales).

"Saucers" have been seen in Auge (Deux-Sèvres), near Brest, in the Seine-et-Marne (the craft was heading towards Coulommiers) and a "cigar" was observed in Montpellier.

Also, cigars and saucers are reported in Algeria, Morocco and Denmark the cigar left behind "tongues of fire."
