Flying saucers in the French Press, 1947:

This article was published in the daily newspaper L'Echo d'Oran, Oran, Algeria, on July 11, 1947.



its "flying saucers"

(From our Paris press room)

PARIS, July 10. -- The "flying saucers" occupy, these days, a large place in the international Press, and yet we do not live a hollow period which requires the recourse to the Sea Serpent and other periodical monsters of the Log Ness.

The world's opinion is alerted and imaginations are excited. America gave the tone: we learned successively that "flying saucers" had been seen that and there, that one of them had been discovered in Roswell, that others had come to fall down against a mountain, that another still had landed in a farmyard.

Scientists leant on the question, scanned the sky, spoke about visions, hallucinations, mystifications. Some even declared that they were new craft more or less atomic that the American specialists would be testing in the greatest secrecy.

A difficult to keep secrecy, at least in these aerial displays, since the opinion is impassioned in the entire world and that the fever reaches several continents.

"Saucers" or "pancakes", as you wish, were seen a little everywhere: in Iran, in Australia, in Denmark. England had his own too, as the "Evening News" tells us, and France also. It seems, indeed, that two shepherds saw a squadron of black dots surrounded by [?], between Bourges and Chateauroux, and made a statement about it to the Gendarmerie.

Who, currently, did not see their "saucer". -- F.D.
