in Tyrol

VIENNA, October 13. - Mr. Harald Kreutzberg, the Austrian "Serge Lifar", living in Seefeld, in Tyrol, observed, while he was in his garden, a flying saucer which flew over the small locality for a few seconds before heading towards the North and disappearing behind the mountains.

Some residents of Seefeld also observed the phenomenon and tried in vain to photograph the mysterious craft.

A "Martian" who speaks French

CHATEAUBRRIANT, October 13. -- A 13-year-old boy, little Gilbert Lelay, claims to have seen last night, around 10:30 p.m., a mysterious craft in a meadow, some 600 meters from his parents' home, in the village of Sainte-Marie-en-Erblay, near Châteaubriant.

The child declares that he stayed ten minutes to observe, about ten meters away, this machine which had the shape of a phosphorescent cigar. A passenger, a man in a suit and a gray hat, wearing boots, reportedly told him in French: "Look, but don't touch." He put a hand on his shoulder while with the other, he held a ball launching purple fires. He got into the craft through a door which he slammed. On what could be a dashboard were several multicolored buttons.

Still according to the child, the craft rose slowly vertically, launching fires in all directions, made two turns in the air and suddenly disappeared.
