Ingenious ‘Saucer’ Just Misses Woman
LINDEN, N.J., July 12 – A “flying saucer” which frightened and narrowly missed striking Mrs. William H. Scott as she entered her home here late last night, today was termed by Army officials from Port Newark who examined it at police headquarters as an “ingenious contrivance” consisting of two tin pie plates soldered together with a bulb, similar to a radio tube, attached to the inside, and an airplane tail.
Mrs. Scott said the “saucer” landed in a patch of grass in the rear
of her home, imbedding itself in the turf. She said she saw the bulb light
with a reddish glow as she ran, frightened, into the house.
