(Reprinted from the March 13, 1975 edition of the Elmwood Argus)
"I was always an unbeliever as far as UFO's were concerned," Mrs. Alfred "Bud" Forster of rural Elmwood said. "But I am not anymore."
It all started when she and her three children, Mary, 9, Ann Marie, 5, and Tom, 4, were returning home about 8 p.m., March 2 from visiting her parents in Arkansas. The Forsters live in between Elmwood and Eau Galle.
They noticed what they believed to be a particularly bright star soon after they started out and she laughingly said they even sang "Star Light, Star Bright". As they continued homeward, she noticed the star seemed to stay right with them, but didn't think too much about it.
She went through Eau Galle and when she turned the corner toward the Jack Baier farm, the bright "star" started dipping lower. She stopped the car and considered driving in the Baier farm but told herself she was just being foolish and continued on.
As she neared the Mrs. Carl Weber farm, the "star" was drifting just over the treetops and she decided to stop at the Weber farm. Mrs. Weber's son, Roger, was there with his two children, John and Laurie, and they all observed the light. He told her that it definitely was not a "star" but that it could possibly be some kind of satellite.
She was reassured and warned him not to tell anyone how foolish she was, and started for her home that was about three miles away.
She had gone only a very short distance when the object gently settled down in front of her car and appeared to be preparing to land. She said it looked like two saucers that had been put together and was white in color with lights all around it. The lights were not intense so they could look at it and see the stick-like legs that protruded from the bottom. She said it was not large. It appeared about the size of a car but more circular.
The children were very frightened and were screaming and crying. She put the car in reverse and backed to the Weber farm. She blew the horn so that they knew something was wrong. The object then rose in the air above the trees but was still visible to the Webers when they came out of the house to see what was the trouble.
Roger Weber took his car and drove in front of hers and saw that she and the children arrived home safely. The object did not come down again but was still visible, and reportedly its lights glowed an orange color.
Mrs. Forster said she hesitated to tell anyone about her experience for fear they would think she had just imagined it. However, she has found that there have been a number of people who have seen UFO's in the area in the past few weeks.
Whatever it was, Mrs. Forster and her children would rather not have it settle down in the road ahead of them again.
