• On July 14th, 1949, the Ville Platte Gazette in Evangeline Parish, Louisiana, reported on its front page, “Mrs. V. Dardeau, of Ville Platte, and her sister, Mrs. Edward Wolff, saw a flying saucer over Alexandria last week. The two sisters were sitting on the lawn of Mrs. Wolff’s residence one night last week when they became aware of a saucer zooming overhead.” They said it was the size and shape of a plate, flew lower and slower than an airplane, made no sound, and had a yellow light in the center. The sisters were “emphatic that it could not be anything else but a saucer.”

• A Mrs. G. S. Hart also saw the saucer over Alexandria, Louisiana. Mrs. Hart stated, “It was all lit up. Then it stopped or changed its course and drifted toward the east. Then it moved toward the west and changed its course once more and disappeared in the east.” She said that four people saw it with her.

• On July 11th, 1949 N. L. Martin and his son, Gene, saw two saucer UFOs about 9 a.m. Martin told the Crowley Post-Signal they were “of an aluminum color and kept glinting in the sunlight” and that they “would spin in a clockwise motion and reverse themselves.

• On July 17th, 1949, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Rhino of Alexandria, and two of their neighbors, saw a disc in the northwest sky that was visible for several minutes. It disappeared for about five minutes, and then reappeared before disappearing altogether.

• At the time, the Air Force was getting a dozen flying saucer reports each month. They were “not a cause for alarm,” the Air Force spokesman said. Thirty percent of the reports were due to conventional aerial objects such as weather balloons, which would “probably” account for another thirty percent. But forty percent remained a mystery.

• Adras Laborde, who would become the managing editor of the Alexandria Town Talk newspaper, planned a convention in 1949 to feature the saucer sighters in his town. But it failed to attract enough people and was canceled. There were no new sightings in central Louisiana for the rest of the year.

 

The flying saucer that sped over the front yard made a visit to her sister’s house especially memorable for a Ville Platte lady in the summer of 1949 — and they were not the only ones to report the strange sighting.

There had been so many that summer and in the summer before that Adras Laborde, who later became managing editor of the Alexandria Town Talk, planned a convention of saucer sighters in his town.

The Ville Platte Gazette reported on its front page on July 14, 1949, “Mrs. V. Dardeau, of Ville Platte, and her sister, Mrs. Edward Wolff, saw a flying saucer over Alexandria last week. The two sisters were sitting on the lawn of Mrs. Wolff’s residence one night last week when they became aware of a saucer zooming overhead.”

They said it was the size and shape of a plate, flew lower and slower than an airplane, made no sound, and had a yellow light in the center.

The sisters were “emphatic that it could not be anything else but a saucer,” according to the Gazette.

Mrs. G. S. Hart also saw the saucer over Alexandria. “It was all lit up,” she said.

“Then it stopped or changed its course and drifted toward the east. Then it moved toward the west and changed its course once more and disappeared in the east.” She said four people were with her and saw it.

The Town Talk’s editors scoffed a bit at the stories, reporting on July 7 that “flying saucers were absent from the skies over Alexandria last night after making an appearance the night before.”

However, there was another saucer sighting in the middle of the day on July 11 over Prairie Hayes in Acadia Parish.

N. L. Martin and his son, Gene, saw two of them about 9 a.m. Martin told the Crowley Post-Signal they were “of an aluminum color and kept glinting in the sunlight” and that they “would spin in a clockwise motion and reverse themselves.

The UFOs were back over Alexandria on July 17, when Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Rhino and two of their neighbors saw a disc in the northwest sky that was visible for several minutes, disappeared for about five minutes, and then reappeared before disappearing altogether.
