Albi, Friday May 30th, 1933 Mike and Valery Clifford (here seen on
archive photograph) have vanished into thin air. The French Police stopped
searching for them after three months. No trace of them was found. The worst
is to be feared.
Mike and Valery left for the South of France in March of this year. They
were going on an archeological exploration in the environment of la Libaudié
in the small village of la Bastide Solages in the Tarn valley. They are both
avid hikers an nature lovers and had one other interest in common: the Holy
As Clifford’s mother told us, they wanted to know everything related to the
Grail, had bookcases full of literature on the subject and followed up even
the tiniest of leads. Mike and Valery believed to have found a trace of the
Holy Grail around la Libaudié. Apparently, the Grail was supposed to have
been hidden there for some time during the past. At past archeological digs
centuries-old documents had be found. Those documents led the Cliffords to
believe in the existence of a Quest, a test of competence, that, upon
completion, gave one the right to join an obscure society that supposedly
guarded the Grail. “Well, you see”, mother Clifford says, “since Mike and
Valery wanted to know everything about this Quest, they took off for the
South of France. After that, we
heard from them again.” The local Gendarmerie thoroughly searched the whole
area. No trace of them was found.
The only living creature the Police encountered was a black Dachshund, that
swiftly disap-peared in the dense forest.
The only other thing they found was a piece of paper from a notebook with
notes that didn’t make any sense to them. A copy of this leaflet is shown on
this page. If anyone can shed any light at all on the meaning of these
sketchy notes, they are invited to contact the local Police. Another very
strange thing is that the black Dachshund has not been seen since its
encounter with the Police.

A furious fire at the Michelin-factories in Leeds destroyed the major
part of the big storage sheds .
The fire probably started by a overheating
compressor. The fire spreaded very quickly because of the many rubber raw
materials stored there. Very soon it appeared that the fire brigade of Leeds
could not cope on its own and the fire spreaded to the adjacent office buildings. Other local brigades were mobilized to help get the fire under control.
Fortunately there were no victims. At the moment they are isolating
