MARTIANS LIKE EYELETS FLOWERS
Mrs. Rosa Lotti, country-woman living in a village close to Florence (Italy), presented herself yesterday to the gendarmerie, in a state of obvious terror and declared that she had met two Martians. Mrs. Rosa Lotti crossed a field to go to the church. She had a large bouquet of eyelets flowers in the arms. Suddenly two one meter tall beings dressed of a kind of diving-suit emerged in front of her and after having pronounced some incomprehensible words, grabbed the flowers.
