He said they wanted to talk to the general about U On Salurday Lumpkin announced the group had met with Eisenhower. He said there had been a most satislactory conference and that it re-affirmed the delegation's opinion lhat "the Democrats of Mississippi should have the opportunity of voting for Gen. ^Elsenhower lor President." There were published rc|X>rts, meanwhile, that the delegation came to town with a plan to pledge support to Eisenhower only if he agreed to meet certain conditions.

But it mattered little that Otto had solved his problem. The people o! Oblinsk had seen the first light in the skyl The next report retained by historians of the mysterious light apparently comes from the Anna- lachian Valtey ol the 'Euripedes Oblongata when an object closely resembling the light was sighted by natives of the Kulonigata tribe, who at the time were warring with the Ataginoluk tribe, which is Kulonigatft spelled backwards. The war was over a queen ol the Ataglnoluks, Cleopatrellis, who— but lhat Is not our story—let us proceed. • b • THE KUI.ONIGATAS were, returning one bright moon-lit night from a midnight raid on the village of the Atagtnoluks when, out ol nowhere, a bright light cast its glare over the Jungle. "Clixo dou- sa offee turnablk," shouted the Kulonlgata chief, which, in English, means "Turn out the damn lipht—you want to get us all killed?" Assured by his gibbering followers that Ihe light did not belong to members of his raiding party, the chief glanced up Into the sky, and thereupon fell on his knees, raising his hands in supplication to the sky and chanting repeatedly "Tostee Postee; Tastee Posiee." In this, he was joined by members of his tribe, who also repeated the chant with heavy Intonations indicating complete surrender to the forces of nature (Tos- tce Postee was the native tongue for Thomas Edison, a French construction worker who, while laying pipeline through the Euripedes Oblongata. became the first white man ever known to the natives.) This little incident was recorded faithfully by penso Scriberian. only savage among the Kuloni- gatas who could write. While Scriberian's hand was not too plain, the very words can still be distinguished to this day on a rock in a coal mine discovered In the valley around the turn of the century. (Scriberian Is believed to have retained a part-time job as a ground-hog for the Green Dot Coal Company in addition to his secretarial duties for the tribe.) » » • IT MAY PROVE interesting at this point to recitp the narrative which tells how the lights gradually came to be called "saucers. The year 1921 was a hectic one in Hungro-Astrory. Three successive revolutions had ravaged the social and economic structures of Ihe nation and a fourth uprising was threatening. On tlw njght when the fourth Insurrection seemed most Imminent, Gregory Saua«r, prime minister of the faltering third administration, was standing on the balcony of the capitol building pondering the question of whether or not ho could successfully pull off a coup d'etat which would land him in the position of sole authority scant minutes after his party and regime was deposed. As he thought heavily on' the weighty problem which confronted him, Satizcr snapped to an errect position, chest out and c li i n thrust forward as might become a dictator accepting the call of his people. In striking this pose, Sau- zer's eyes were, quite naturally, elevated at a slight angle toward the sky. Suddenly Sauzcr started as a strange light appeared in the western sky. Observing the eerie Bight for several minutes. Sauzer then rushed to report his discovery. THE N'KXT morning, newspapers throughout Hungro-Astrory carried two stories In which Sau- zer's name figured prominently. The first was the story of the fourth revolution which had occurred ihe proceeding night, resulting in Sauzcr's assuming total authority and soverign power In the country. The second story was the account of the sighting of the mysterious object by Sauzer. In their haste to jump on the bandwagon of the new ruler, hundreds of people verified the report as presented by Sauzer. Starting out as "I saw Sauzer's light, too." t h e phase underwent a quick evolution to the less unwieldy. "I saw a Sauzer." Having used all available letter "z's" in the first story (wooden type was still in vogue) newspapers turned to the more plentiful "c's." Hence the phrase, "I saw a saucer." Saucer-seeing probably had its modern inception in 1946 w hen a fabulously wealthy playboy member of Long Island society reported that he observed an unidentified object, fully lighted, inanuever mysteriously In the sky off EiiRret Sound. • • • STANISLAUS NUT S C H E L L, scion of a distinguished family with a fortune in Moravian uranium concession holdings and ex- lensive oil interests near Lak Jcem, Nova Scotia, and fourth cousin of Elvis (Undertaker) Nut- schell, notorious near-beer baron of the twenties, reported his find lo newspapers on the eastern seaboard.

Stanislaus and others, however, have since received complete vindication as similar reports hava become widespread and authora- tativo. The authenticity of the objects is now a certainty.
