"Flying Saucer" Ashes Found In Field Near BrantfordBrantford July 17 -- The first report of a flying saucer in this district comes from Mrs. William Stewart and Mrs. Herbert Suderman, who today claimed to have seen one of the yet unexplained missles sweep across the sky last night. When it came to earth in a near-by pasture, they found a patch of ash about one foot in diameter.It went through the air about 35 or 40 miles and hour the women reported, then it lost momentum and fluttered to the ground about 100 yards from the Stewart house. The women could find no trace of the mysterious object but when Mr. Stewart joined the search they located the patch of grey colored ash.
No Flying Saucer, Likely Burned KiteBrantford, July 23 (CP) -- The object which fell last week in a pasture west of here, believed at first to be a flying saucer, was reported to be less exciting following chemical analysis of the remains. Finding no trace of metallic oxides such as found in incendiaries, a chemist suggested that the ash may have been a kite someone had ignited after analysis revealed an alkaline composition characteristic of paper or cloth.Source(s):
