FINALLY SOMETHING SERIOUS

A "Saucer" seen
by a peacekeeper

We would be ill-inspired if we had abandoned today a chronicle that made the heyday of our imaginations, that of the flying saucers.

Especially since we have new arguments to fuel it, and excellent ones.

We recently recounted the nocturnal exploits of the strange "Martian" that a resident of Amiens had "discovered" route d'Allonville and that he was driving in his van from cafe to cafe.

Only the energetic action of our friend Gilbert, a daring waiter, made it possible to discover that he was a Terran in disguise.

Our Gilbert indeed rushed on the Martian and searched him from top to bottom, which put an end to the joke.

Today, it is more serious. This is a new testimony and this testimony appears very trustworthy since it is that of a peacekeeper, Mr. Delcourt.

Yesterday around 11:40 a.m., while Mr. Delcourt was strolling rue Gauthier-de-Rummilly, he looked up to the sky where vast streaks of condensation spread that planes had left in their path moments before.

Now, abruptly, above these tracks, at a very high height, according to Mr. Delcourt, and in the direction of Ailly-sur-Somme, appeared a kind of silver and shiny lens which without the slightest noise reflected, made a large quarter circle and disappeared on the horizon.

Mr. Delcourt did not notice any smoke around the machine which moved at a very high speed.

- In any case, the peacekeeper told us yesterday, I affirm that this mysterious craft had in no way a shape of known craft.
