A motorist from the Tarn
reportedly saw two passengers
of a flying saucer

ALBI. -- A motorist from Briatexte (Tarn), Mr. Jean-Pierre Mitto, technical agent in a company currently exhibiting at "Household Arts" in Toulouse, declared having encountered at nightfall, on national road number 631, the passengers of a flying saucer.

"Coming back from Toulouse in the company of two parents, he said, I suddenly distinguished in the beam of my headlights two little characters who crossed the road barely a few meters from my car. I stopped immediately and, to our great astonishment, we then saw flying from a neighboring meadow a large red disc with a diameter of about six meters, rising vertically. The craft disappeared in the sky in a few seconds."

Other saucers were also seen, in Meaux, in Riom in Meurthe-et-Moselle, near Mulhouse, in the Seine, in the Finistère and the Pyrénées Orientales.

The Association
for research
on the flying saucers
gets new followers
in New Zealand

In New Zealand, the Civil Association for Research on the Flying Saucers recorded 70 new registrations since the beginning of the year.

Mr. H. Fulton, President of the Association, said during his congress that the number of "unidentified flying objects" spotted in the skies of New Zealand this year is higher than in previous years.

"In the scientific world, he said, there is a definite tendency to admit that the saucers are craft probably coming from other planets."
