PROFESSEUR HAHN DOES NOT BELIEVE IN FLYING SAUCERS
WURZBOURG, 19 (D.P.A.) -. the German winner of the Nobel Prize, professor Otto Hahn, stated Saturday in Wurzbourg, that he does not believe that the atmospheric conditions were influenced by the atomic explosions. Nothing was established scientifically in favour of such a point of view.
Moreover, professor Hahn stated: "No sensible man can grant faith to the whimsical accounts relating to the flying saucers. If the Marsians [sic ] or other beings undertook visits towards the Earth, they would come and say "hello" to us instead of flying over the Earth at a great altitude.
