RP Orders Medallion

For Canal Collection
To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Panama Canal,
to be celebrated in August, the Government of Panama has
decreed that a memorial medal be made honoring the feat made
possible by the efforts of the Republic of Panama and the
United States.
The memorial medal has on the front side, "Fiftieth Anniver-
sary of the Panama Canal," in the center, the images of former
Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Belisario Porras, and the
present Presidents of the United States and Panama. Below the
images are the motto of Panama, "Pro Mundi Beneficio" and
the dates 1914-1964.
The other side shows Gaillard Cut with a ship transiting and
bears the inscription "Fiftieth Anniversary of the Panama Canal."
At the top is the coat of arms of the Republic of Panama, and
at the bottom, are two stars.
The memorial medal has been made by the Aurea Numismatica
of Madena, Italy, with dies cast by the Coin Institute of Italy.



That famed "surrey with the fringe
on top" will be visiting the Canal
Zone soon.

More ships than at any time in
history are transiting the Panama
Canal, yet they are moving through
During the past fiscal year when
a bumper crop of 12,184 oceangoing
ships passed through the waterway,
vessels entering one entrance for
transit spent an average of only 13.8
hours in Canal waters before clearing
from the opposite entrance for the
high seas.
This was 2.1 hours less than the
average time spent by ships in transit
during fiscal year 1963 when the
average transit time was 15.9 hours
and 5'/2 hours less than the average
time of 19.3 hours in fiscal year 1960.
Each hour saved in transit time
represents a possible saving of from
$50 to $100 in vessel operating costs,
assuming an average vessel costs
approximately $100 an hour to
The success of "operation speed-
up" in 1964 is even more impressive
in view of the fact that in the past
12 months, all traffic records for the
50 years of operation of the Panama
Canal were broken.
During the past fiscal year, the
12,000 mark for oceangoing traffic
was passed for the first time. Of this
number 11,808 were commercial
vessels, many of them super cargo
carriers of a size or type that made it
necessary to send them through
Gaillard Cut during daylight hours
with "clear Cut" preference and with
the assistance of a tug.
The continued improvement in
the speed with which oceangoing
ships can be handled by the Panama
Canal is due to a number of factors
included in a long-range capacity im-
provement program. During the past
year, it can be attributed in part to
the increased efficiency of Panama
Canal employees who handle transit
operations and in part to the use of
the new towing locomotives at Gatun
Locks which cut approximately 15
minutes off the time of each lockage.
Credit also can be given to the
completion of a major part of the
extensive project of widening of
Gaillard Cut from 300 to 500 feet;
the lighting of the Cut and the locks
to permit transit of ships that would
have been restricted to daylight
transit a few years ago, and the estab-
lishment of 24-hour or round-the-
clock operation of the Pacific locks.
In addition to the 12,184 ships
of 300 or more Panama Canal net
tons, there were 736 smaller com-
mercial and U.S. Government-owned
vessels passing through the Canal
during the past year.

Snuggled next to Mama, little Al grabs a snooze as he begins his life in
a comfortable basket, unaware that he is alive only because of the quick
thinking of his master.


Miranda, a 6-year-old Boston Terrier who belongs to Mr. and
Mrs. L. W. Chambers of Gamboa, is perhaps the happiest canine
mother on the Isthmus. In what was a happy twist to the dog-
saves-man story, Larry Chambers, a safety representative for
the Marine Bureau, last week saved the life of the only puppy
in Miranda's third litter.
Chambers was acting as midwife at the birth which occurred
early Wednesday morning, July 2, at his home in Gamboa. When
he realized the puppy was being born feet first and had stopped
breathing, he quickly began mouth to mouth resuscitation. After
a few breaths the newborn pup started breathing again.
Al, as the puppy was later christened, is only the second puppy
to survive out of the six in Miranda's three litters.

More than 100 student assistants working for the Canal under the annual Student Assistant Program were guests
for an afternoon of orientation, recently, to acquaint them with the Canal organization. In addition to receiving
folders containing information about the Canal and the Student Assistant Program, the group was welcomed to
the organization by Governor Fleming, and Loron B. Burnham, Supervisory Employee Development Officer, and
a talk by Frank A. Baldwin, Panama Canal Information Officer. Following the briefing in the Balboa High School
Activities Building, the group traveled by bus to the Pedro Miguel Launch Landing for a partial transit to
Gamboa aboard the tour launch Las Cruces. Fred Berest, of the Canal Zone Guide Service, explained the major
points of interest of the Canal to the students (some were in college last year and some graduated from high
school in June).

Article Sketches

Trailer Caravan's

Trip to Isthmus

The Canal Zone was featured re-
cently in a 1I-page article in the
Trail-R-News Magazine, Glendale,
The story dealt with 48 trailer
traveling tourists (the Highroaders
Trailer Club) and their trek on
wheels to the Canal Zone and Pan-
ama via the Inter-American High-
way. The trip was made in February
The article points out that there is
no doubt that trailer caravans such
as the group mentioned can make
the trip. It cautions, however, against
making the trip unless the traveler is
prepared for the hardship of passing
over the several uncompleted sec-
tions of the highway.
No one was paid and each member
of the group had to pay his own way.
Each member handled a certain job
(leader, chaplain, etc.).
Courtesy on the part of the people
they met along the way made up for
the language barrier. When the group
arrived in Panama and found no
facilities for them, the Panama
Tourist Bureau came to their aid with
electric power and water.

ama Canal Review contained a

By Eleanor Burnham

The most important pamphlet to
be added to the library in many
months is the Report on the Events
in Panama, January 9-12, 1964;
prepared by the Investigating Com-
mittee appointed by the Interna-
tional Commission of Jurists. This
46-page pamphlet was prepared by
the International Commission of
Jurists in Geneva, Switzerland, and
published in English, French,
German, and Spanish. The library
has copies in both English and
Spanish. The report, which is signed
by the three well-known jurists who
were appointed by the International
Commission as the investigating
committee were: Professor A. D.
Belinfante of Amsterdam University
(Netherlands), Judge Gustaf Petr6n
(Sweden), and Navroz Vakil, prac-
tising lawyer, Bombay (India). This
objective report should be read by
everybody who was present during
the unhappy events of January 9-12.
The Big Knives, the twentieth
novel by Bruce Lancaster, is a
biographical novel about George
Rogers Clark and the small band of
heroic men whom he led in fantastic
exploits during the Revolutionary
War. It includes accounts of his
famous Indian-fighting raids in the
Middle West, and of his high quality
leadership which made them pos-
sible. Lancaster was finishing The
Big Knives at the time of his death.
His famous novels include: For Us
the Living, Guns of Burgoyne, and
No Bugles Tonight.
The New York Times Election
Handbook, 1964, was written by
reporters and editors of the New
York Times and compiled by Harold
Faber. It is a wonderful guide-not
only to the problems, issues, and
personalities involved in the forth-
coming elections, but to the Amer-
ican political scene in general.
The mission of the book-to in-
form and prepare the electorate for
the serious business of November
1964-is enlivened by intriguing

facts about some of our great
leaders. For example, our tallest
president was Abraham Lincoln-6
feet 3 inches while the shortest and
lightest was James Madison-5 feet
4 inches and 100 pounds. The first
president who was born an American
citizen was Martin Van Buren.
There is an account of a press
interview with Calvin Coolidge. His
answers to all questions were "No."
His only sentence was, "Please don't
quote me." These facts and stories
are only the ephemera of the book,
but they do give it a delightful per-
sonal flavor. Everyone who is inter-
ested in the forthcoming national
election (and who is not?) should
read this fascinating book.
Rascals' Heaven, by F. Van Wyck
Mason, is a novel about General
Oglethorpe and his attempt to estab-
lish a colony in Georgia in 1733.
With the Spanish already entrenched
in Florida, the French on the move
from Louisiana, and Indians in
between, Oglethorpe's problems were
great. This is an exciting historical
novel about a strong-willed and
heroic personality. Before the pub-
lication of this book, little popular
material about him had been avail-
able. F. Van Wyck Mason has
written many distinguished novels
including Three Harbours, Stars on
the Sea, and Cutlass Empire, a story
of Panama.
Men of the Contrail Country, by
Ed Mack Miller, is a collection of
exciting true stories about the famous
flyers and airmen of the 20th century.
These include "Wild Bill" Wellman,
Paul Mantz, the "King of the Stunt
Men," Gen. Curtis LeMay, and Col.
Ross Greening, whose numerous and
marvelous escapes resulted in his
being called "The Man the Axis
couldn't kill." Ed Mack Miller is an
instructor for United Air Lines at
Stapleton Field, Denver, Colo.,
where he teaches pilots to fly UAL
DC-8's, Boeing 720's and Boeing

In a number of countries today,
tourism represents an invisible indus-
try which approaches or tops tradi-
tional products like sugar, bananas,
coffee, oil, meat, or wheat as the
No. 1 breadwinner.
Yet, the tourist industry in Panama
is still a growing giant. All over Latin
America it has a vast potential for
growth, with a mammoth, neighbor-
ing market-the United States-from
which to draw.
Spending by U.S. tourists in over-
seas lands now amounts to more than
$2.8 billion, in contrast to $2.6
billion in 1961. Of that amount, it is
estimated that some $200 million a
year is being spent in the Caribbean
area, another $50 million in South
America, according to reports by
airline officials.
By 1970 it is forecast that over-
seas spending by U.S. tourists will
reach a staggering $5 billion. Panama
will seek to increase its share of
tourist dollars.
Even today, these overseas travel
dollars exceed the money spent by
the United States for such impor-
tant products as oil, coffee, sugar,
meat, and other products.
In 1962, nearly 1 million U.S.
pleasure and business travelers vis-
ited the Caribbean, Mexico, and
Central and South America.
With giant, 625-mile-an-hour jet
airliners bringing the United States
twice as close to south-of-the-border
lands as ever before, travel officials
predict the jetliners can bring as
much as a 20 percent increase a year
in this travel.
An analysis of what a tourist ac-
tually means to a country, such as
Panama, in dollars and cents brings
some surprising statistics.
In the first place, the tourist in-
dustry does not supplant any other
industry. It actually complements
them, and spurs their growth. It does
not deplete any of Panama's natural
resources. Tourism provides work for
hotel employees, restaurateurs, taxi
drivers, rental car operators, guides,
entertainers, boatmen, and workers
in dozens of tourist-allied fields.
It gives the farmer an increased
market for vegetables, dairy pro-
ducts, and meat.
Tourists provide a ready market
for small industries, such as leather,
wood, handicrafts, fashions.
And tourism contributes directly
to permanent improvements such as
airports, highways, domestic trans-
portation, health, and sanitary pro-
grams and public utilities, all of
which benefit permanent residents
of a community as well as tourists.
The construction of such improve-
ments and new facilities provides
hundreds of new jobs in the building
trades field.
A dollar spent by a tourist in Pan-
ama rolls a long way. It has a very
high circulation, as the economists
say. It is like a stone tossed into a
pool, causing an immediate splash
and ripples that spread widely.
The tourist money goes directly
into the hands of the people-boot-
blacks and beauticians, maids and
merchants. It is new money infused
into the national bloodstream. It
spreads widely and quickly.
The first recipient of a tourist
dollar turns around and pays off his
suppliers and staffs, his landlord,
his grocer. They in turn pay their
staffs, and their suppliers of raw
In the United States, the multiplier
effect of such spending is estimated
at 21 times. In Latin America, the
multiplier effect probably would
be more.
Studies made in Jamaica show
clearly how tourist spending quickly
effects every segment of the economy
of a country. Of $15,512,000 spent
by tourists in Jamaica in 1960, studies
indicate that probably over a million

dollars went into the hands of small
vendors who sell straw items and
other curios on the streets.
Studies also show that of each
$15 spent in a country by a tourist,
$1 goes to the country's farmers,
through consumption of locally-
grown foodstuffs purchased by hotels
and restaurants.
Eighty cents or more of every
dollar a tourist spends is left within
the countries he visits. His dollar
spending breaks down like this:
29 cents for lodging, 21 cents for
transportation, including transporta-
tion within a country; 18 cents for
retail purchases, and 12 cents for
Tourists in Latin America spend
an average of $25 to $40 a day each.
Their average stay in a country is
about 5 to 9 days. Thus, a tourist

will spend a minimum of $150 to
$350 in visiting Panama.
In the face of such statistics, a
number of tourist-conscious countries
in the Caribbean have been quick to
recognize the value of a vigorous
tourist promotion program. It is quite
obviously good business to spend $2
to $10 in promotion work to bring
a tourist to a country if he leaves
$200 or so with local people after
he gets there.
Governments themselves are a
major beneficiary of the tourist
spending. A good average is that of
each $10 spent by a tourist in a
country, $1 goes directly to the gov-
ernment in form of landing taxes,
excise duties on beverages and
cigarettes, import duties on food and
drink consumed by tourists, tax on
gasoline they use in sightseeing and



duty on imported articles pur-
chased by shopping-conscious North
There is still a vast, untapped
foreign travel market in the United
States. Recent surveys show that by
number of tourists, about 94 percent
do their traveling within their own
country, while only 6 percent go in
for foreign travel. North Americans
spent $2.8 billion in overseas travel
last year, but at the same time spent
$23 billion on "home" vacations.
Overseas countries face stem com-
petition in their quest for the tourist
dollar. Domestic resort areas within
the United States are lavish in their
promotion programs. For instance,
the State of Florida alone spent
nearly $3 million last year on tourist
promotion and advertising-nearly
equal to the amount spent by the
governments of all South and Central
America and the Caribbean.
A well-planned and vigorous cam-
paign of publicity and advertising
probably is more important in the
travel field than any other enterprise.
The desire to "get away from it all"
on a vacation trip is one which must
be aroused psychologically. A person
is not obliged to travel. He must be
constantly stimulated.
The overseas U.S. tourist dollar
today is spent, geographically, about
this way:
Some 37 cents goes to Europe and
the Mediterranean, 30 cents goes to
Canada, 20 cents to Mexico, 9 cents
to Bermuda, Central America, and
the West Indies; 2 cents to the Pacific
and 2 cents to South America.
Studies show a definite connection
between tourist promotion spending
and a country's share of the tourist
market. Such areas, for example, as
Nassau, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico,
which have been able to improve
their relative portion of the total
Caribbean vacation market, have ex-

(This is the first of a series of
little known historical facts taken
from George Stimpson's A Book
About American History, pub-
lished by Harper & Row, Inc.)

We all know America was dis-
covered in 1492 by Christopher
Columbus, but what did it cost to
discover it?
The money, estimated at anywhere
from $16,000 to $75,000, came from
the governments of Castile and Leon;
Luis de Santangel, receiver of the
church revenues; a group of Palos
merchants; and from Columbus
Queen Isabella is said to have con-
tributed approximately $8,550, Co-
lumbus about $2,000. These figures
are merely estimates because the
process of converting the value from
ancient monetary systems to our
present system is a difficult one.

Swim Meet Nets

Four New Records

Four Canal Zone records were
broken last weekend in the annual
July 4 swim meet at Balboa.
Bruce Oliver, competing in the
50-yard breaststroke for boys 10 years
of age and under, was clocked in 42.8
seconds, toppling the old mark of
44.1 seconds held by Ralph Morgan.
The 50-yard breaststroke for girls
11 and 12 years of age has a new
record of 39.8 seconds, set by Joanne
Roth. Sharon Baker and Karen Hicks
held the old mark of 41.7 seconds.
Marty Holmes smashed his own
100-yard butterfly record of 1:02.0
for boys unlimited with a time of
58.8 seconds.
Mary Thompson's old 200-yard
individual medley mark for girls
unlimited fell by the wayside to Judy
Redmond. Miss Redmond clipped
19.9 seconds off the old mark of
3:12:4, covering the distance in
In addition to the four new
records, the Greiser Award, given
annually to the outstanding boy and
girl swimmer in the Canal Zone, was
presented to Duncan Summerford
and Judy Redmond. To win the
award it is not necessary to be a
champion, a record breaker or a title
holder. Primary consideration is given
to character, sportsmanship, atti-
tude, perseverance, and other such
Special thanks to Mrs. Jean Wainio
for the success of the meet were
heard from many of her co-workers
in the meet. Despite a steady rain
throughout most of the meet, a
capacity crowd of several hundred
remained until the end.



Twenty Canal Zone golfers will
soon travel to Medellin, Colombia,
for the Rodeo Golf Club's Sixth
Annual Open Golf Tournament,
which begins July 16 and runs until
July 21.
Also playing in the tournament
will be professionals and amateurs
from Colombia.
Those making the trip are Preston
M. Trim, Jr., George Riley, Jim
Riley, Sr., Jeff Riley, Dick Goodman,
Dustry Rhodes, Bob Diaz, Thomas
Ward, Paul Hunt, George Vorhees,
James Wainer, Wayne Brassey,

Riley Hurls Way

To Starting Role

With Cardinal Club
Jim Riley, Jr., Balboa High School
mound star for the past 2 years, has
picked up in the States where he left
off here in the Zone.
Jim ended his high school career
with a fantastic earned run average
of 0.57 for 3 years. In April he
signed with the St. Louis Cardinals
and is now playing for the Cardinal
farm team in Sarasota, Fla., in the
Florida Rookie League.
The season began July 1 and Jim
pitched in the team's second game,
a 1-0 loss to a Milwaukee farm team.
The 6'1", 166-pound (he has lost
14 pounds in 1 month) southpaw
hurled three innings, gave up one
hit, no runs, one walk, and struck out
5 of the 9 men to face him. Jim
wrote to his parents saying he was
scheduled to start last Monday, but
no word has been received on the.
outcome of the game.
The Florida Rookie League is
divided into two sections with four
teams in each section. Jim is in the
western half, located in Sarasota,
which includes teams affiliated with
the Milwaukee Braves, the St. Louis
Cardinals, the New York Yankees,
and the Washington Senators. The
eastern half of the league, located
in Cocoa, Fla., has farm clubs from
the Minnesota Twins, the New York
Mets, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and
the Detroit Tigers.
Each half of the league plays only
in the town in which it is based.
At the end of the year, however,
there will be a playoff between the
two division winners.

mada de perritos parecia destinada

gado de seguridad en la Direcci6n

hizo con todo 6xito.

parto se ahogaba al nacer patas

mones, boca contra boca.

denominado con el nombre de Al,
es solo el segundo crio que sobre-
vive de los tres parts de Miranda.

Turismo es Ahora la Primera

Industria de Muchos Paises
En numerosos paises del mundo, el turismo se ha convertido hoy en una nueva industrial
"invisible," cuyos ingresos, en muchos casos, han sobrepasado los obtenidos por las exportaciones
de azucar, bananos, caf6, carnes, granos y petr6leo-industrias bAsicas de algunos paises.
Los turistas norteamericanos estAn gastando ahora alrededor de $2.8 billones en el extranjero.
De esa cantidad, unos $200 millones han sido gastados en las regions del Caribe y otros $50
millones en Sud Amirica.
Casi un mill6n quinientos mil turistas norteamericanos visitaron el Area del Caribe, Am6rica
Central y Am6rica del Sur el afio pasado.

Experts de la industrial turistica
pronostican que estas cifras pueden
aumentar un 20 por ciento durante
este afio, y Panama podria benefi-
ciarse de este auge.
La era del jet ofrece brillantes
posibilidades de incrementar mAs ain
este turismo a PanamA.
Un anDlisis detallado de lo que
represent un turista para la econo-
mia de un pais como Panama en
pesos y centavos-arroja resultados
En primer lugar, la industrial del
turismo no substitute a ninguna otra,
ya que no emplea materials primas.
Tampoco agota los recursos natu-
rales del Istmo. Muy al contrario,
complement y ayuda a desarrollar
nuevas industries en PanamA. El tu-
rismo proporciona aqui trabajo a los
empleados de hotels, restaurants,
choferes de autos de alquiler, guias
y trabajadores de otros sectors,
ligados intimamente al turismo.
Aumenta los ingresos del campe-
sino panamefio incrementando la de-
manda de products agricolas, car-
nes, leche, etc. Ofrece asimismo, un
mercado a las pequefias industries
de pieles, trabajos manuales, etc.
El turismo contribute tambi6n a
propiciar obras permanentes tales
como aeropuertos, carreteras, trans-
portes locales, programs de mejo-
ras sanitarias y educativas, de las
cuales disfrutan los residents y los
turistas por igual.
Las obras de mejoramiento crean
fuentes de trabajo para cientos de
obreros y tecnicos profesionales del
ramo de la construcci6n.
Economistas han podido com-
probar que el d6lar gastado por un
turista circula extraordinariamente.
Se le compare con una piedra arro-
jada a un estanque, que produce
un chapoteo inmediato seguido de
una series de ondas que se extienden
a larga distancia.
El dinero gastado por un turista
va directamente a las manos de la
poblaci6n-a los limpiabotas, pelu-
queros, camareros y comerciantes.
Es dinero nuevo inyectado en la
economic de PanamA.
Estudios realizados recientemente
en Jamaica, demuestran claramente
que el dinero gastado por turistas,
afecta de inmediato todos los secto-
res de la economic. De un total de
$15,512,000 gastados por turistas en
Jamaica, en un afio reciente, se com-
prob6 que casi un mill6n de d6lares
fue a parar directamente a manos de
pequefios comerciantes y vendedores
Las estadisticas demuestran, per
otra parte, que de cada $15 gastados
por un turista en cualquier pais
extranjero, $1 va a parar a manos de
los campesinos, como consecuencia
de la venta de mayor cantidad de
products alimenticios a hotels y
Ochn enta centavos de cada d6lar
gastado por un turista quedan en el
pais. He aqui un analisis detallado de
c6mo se distribuye un d6lar gastado:
29 centavos para comidas, 20 cen-
tavos para alojamiento, 21 centavos
para transport local, 18 centavos
para la compra de objetos y 12
centavos para diversiones.
Seg6n cAlculos realizados el turista
gasta un promedio de $25 a $40
diaries y permanece entire 5 y 9 dias
en el pais. Esto significa que cada
turista gasta un minimo de $150 a
$300, durante su permanencia en
el pais.
En vista de estas cifras, mAs que
elocuentes, un n6mero de paises,
conscientes de lo que significa esta
industrial "invisible" pero "tangible,"
se han apresurado a poner en prdc-
tica sendos programs de promoci6n
turistica. Indudablemente que es
un buen negocio invertir entire $2
y $10, para atraer al pais a un turista
que gastara alrededor de $200.

Los propios gobiernos son los prin-
cipales beneficiaries de la industrial
turistica. Se estima que de cada $10
que gasta un visitante, uno va a parar
a manos del gobierno en forma de
impuestos. Estos incluyen desde el
permiso de entrada al pais hasta de-
rechos aduanales y tributes pagados
por cigarrillos, bebidas y comestibles
consumidos por los turistas. A esto
hay que agregar el dinero que se
paga al gobierno en impuestos sobre
combustible y otros objetos que
compran en el pais.
Aiun existen fuentes turisticas en
Estados Unidos, que no han sido
Un studio hecho recientemente
en Estados Unidos arroja el si-
guiente resultado: el 94 per ciento
de los norteamericanos viajan en su
propio pais, dejando solamente un
6 por ciento de turistas que viajan
al extranjero. El afio pasado, los
norteamericanos gastaron $2,800
millones en el extranjero, pero
$23,000 millones en vacaciones en
su propio pais.
Existe una extraordinaria com-
petencia international por conquis-
tar el turismo norteamericano.
Los centros turisticos de los Esta-
dos Unidos gastan grandes sumas de
dinero en sus campafias de promo-
ci6n. Un ejemplo muy elocuente es

el siguiente: El estado de la Florida
invirti6 alrededor de $3 millones en
su campafia de fomento turistico de
1962-casi igualando el total de di-
nero gastado por todos los gobiernos
de Sud, Centro America y el Caribe.
Una campafia de promoci6n y
publicidad bien planeada es proba-
blemente mis important en el ne-
gocio de turismo que en cualquier
otro campo. El deseo innato de
cambiar de ambiente, en un viaje
de vacaciones, debe ser alentado
sicol6gicamente. Una persona no
estA obligada a viajar, como lo estA
a comprar los comestibles de la fa-
milia, pagar el alquiler, comprar
ropas o visitar al m6dico. Es por
ello que debe ser continuamente
alentada y estimulada.
Un anAlisis detallado del d6lar
gastado por el turista norteamericano
en el extranjero arroja el siguiente
A Europa y a la zona del Medi-
terraneo correspondent 37 centavos,
30 centavos al CanadA, 20 centavos
a Mexico, 9 centavos a Bermuda,
Centro America y las Indias Occi-
dentales, 2 centavos al Pacifico y 2
centavos a Sud America.
Las estadisticas sefialan una rela-
ci6n direct entire la promoci6n del
turismo de determinado pais, y los
resultados obtenidos.

Muchas de las costumbres actuales

cuando todos los cruzados Ilevaban
armadura dentro y fuera del castillo,
era una costumbre general levantar
la visera de las mAscaras de hierro
en serial de saludo. Hoy, nos levan-
tamos el sombrero al reconocer a
un amigo.
Otra costumbre antiquisima es la
de estrechar las manos. Hace cientos
