'Little Men' in Flying Disc

MOJAVE. Cal. Aug. 19 (INS) -- A grizzled desert prospector reported that a "whizzing disk" crashed near Death Valley today and that two little men jumped out and disappeared in the sand dunes.

The prospector, Buck Fitzgerald, who claimed he has lived in the Death Valley region long enough to know a flying disk when he sees one, said that his sidekick, Mase Garney, also witnessed the event.

Related Fitzgerald:

"This flying disk, which was about 24 ft. in diameter, whizzed past us going about 300 mph.

"It crash-landed and two little men jumped out and started running when they saw us.

"The men looked human but they were very small - like dwarfs.

"We chased them over a sand dune but lost them. I don't know where they went."
