"Look, but do not touch"!

The occupant of the "cigar" wore a hat and talked in French...

Paris. -- A "Martian" finally spoke in loud and intelligible voice! Gilbert Lelay, a 13-year-old kid, was the happy listener. Whatever one thinks of his story given to the gendarmes. "I live in Sainte-Marie-en-Erbray (Loire-Inférieure). Monday evening at about 10:30 p.p., I was out of my parents' home when, in a nearby meadow, I saw a phosphorescent craft that had the shape of a cigar. I observed it for ten minutes".

"All of a sudden, a man came down from it, he was wearing a suit and a grey hat and had boots on: he told me in French: "Look but do not touch". He put a hand on my shoulder while in the other hand, he was holding a ball. Then he climbed into the craft, there were several multicolored buttons like on the instrument panel of a plane.
