Flying Saucer Reports Come From Abroad
A sudden wave of flying saucer reports came simultaneously today from persons in at least five different parts of the world, including one from Germany who claimed to have seen less than four feet creatures disembark from a cigar-shaped craft.
Persons in Germany, Belgium, Egypt, Argentina, Lebanon and the French Cameroons claimed they saw mysterious disks in the sky.
In Muenster, Germany, 42 years old movie projectionnist Franz Hoge told the news agency DPA that he saw a "flying saucer" land in a field and peculiarly shaped creatures get out.
Hoge said he noticed a bright blue lights and thought at first it came from a crashed airplane.
On closer examination, he declared, he discovered a "cigar-shaped" craft hovering about six feet above the ground and giving off a brilliant blue radiance which nearly blinded him.
THEN, he added, he suddenly sighted four creatures about three and one half feet in height. He said they had "thick-set bodies, oversized heads and delicate legs" and wore runner-like clothing.
Hoge said he observed the craft and its occupants for about 10 minutes from a distance of about 200 feet, but did not have the courage to approach any closer.
Flying saucer reports came also from Frankfurt, Germany; Namur, Belgium; Buenos Aires, Alexandria, Beirut and Yaounde in the French Cameroons.
