SHOULD WE BELIEVE IT?

Passengers of
the flying saucers
contact
the "Earthlings"

Saucers, cigars, discs, crowns, balls, lights, luminous streaks of various colors and all other flying objects were seen in Saint-Etienne, in several villages of Eure and Loir, at Heyrieux (Isère), Dieulanvallon (Côtes du Nord), Ajort (Calvados) and in Biarritz.

A strange testimony is that of Mr. André Narcy, 48 years old, roadworker in Mertrud (Haute-Marne). He was going to work yesterday morning on a motorcycle, when near Voillecompte, at 7:15 a.m., he noticed in a field at the place called "La Vieille Tuilerie" an orange object. As he got closer, he noticed that he was in the presence of an unknown object. The roadmaker stopped his machine and, by foot, reached a hundred meters from the object. It was then that he saw a small being about 1.20 m. tall and dressed in a coat covered with hair. Mr. Narcy was very frightened and lay down on the ground, then he called the individual. The latter, after turning towards him, rushed into his machine, which immediately flew vertically to get lost in the clouds.

According to Mr. Narcy the machine was spherical in shape, with a diameter of about ten meters. Under the sphere was a kind of spindle and the porthole through which the being entered the craft was right between the spindle and the body of the craft. At the start of the latter, a kind of flame went out of the spindle, while a large vaporous eddy occurred under the machine.

Mr. Narcy immediately went to work, where he told his comrades of his adventure. With two of them, MM. Riel and Henry, he returned to the place, where he noted that the dew no longer existed on a certain surface. The grass had a slightly milky hue and was crushed on a square about three meters aside. In addition, 12 parallel tracks were distributed over a certain distance, suggesting that the craft had landed by a series of small jolts.

Two men go down
of a "flying tureen"

In addition, a farmer from Chaleix (Dordogne), Mr. Garreau said on his honor that he had seen a "flying tureen" land on his property. Mr. Garreau said that two perfectly normal men, dressed in khaki overalls, got out, shook his hand, and spoke an unknown language to him. Mr. Garreau, amazed, did not answer. The two men petted his dog and climbed back into the craft; which flew silently away at a dizzying pace.

At the place indicated by Mr. Garreau, it was found that the grass had been trampled.
