Mr. Martin in 1955 has encounter with cigar shaped object in 1955

I have recently come across a magizine published by Dan Martin by DAP O'Day press 9 the magazine has no publishing date on it). The booklet is about Mr. Martin's sighting of a ufo in the late summer (August) of 1955 and his encounter wiht beignd within this object. Mr. Martin asserts that he was driving north from Eagle pass Texas and had just passed the Nueses River It was about midnight . At this point suddenly Mr. Martin's legs and arms began to feel numb, Mr Martin quickly pulled off the side of the road fearing he was having a heart attack. As soon as his car was stopped a noise from behind his car caought his attention.An object came form behind Mr. Martin's car and stoped across the road form him. Mr. Martin describes a Cigar shaped craft that appeared to be hovering about 8 ft. above the ground. He could not see landing gears of any kind. At this point Mr. Martin felt compelled to get out of his car and walk across the road as he came around the back end of the object he say a medium sized humanoid woman step out of the craft. He says at this pont he had a conversation with this beign. After this breif conversation Mr. Martin got back into the car and cannot remember starting it. He watched the object take off at a very sharp angle, clearing very easily the nearby treetops. Mr. Martain never heard any noise from the object and within a matter of seconds from it taking off it was gone.
