Restoration Program Is Underwa

Spain, Latin

"A cultural and educational
bridge between the northern aid southern hemispheres," is one way to describe the extensive restoration program being conducted n this nation's oldest city, as it celebrates the 400th Anniversary of its founding.
Carried on principally by the
State of Florida, through the St.
Augustine Historical Restoration and Preservation Commission, other participants include the St.
Augustine Historical Society, Florida Military Department, private individuals and national organizations, such as the ,V.. S.
Department of Interior, National
Park Service.
The cuural link, as described
by the late President John F.
Kennedy, centers around the vaious foreign exhibition buildings beng constructed in St. Augustine in connection with the vast restoration effort. A fine example is that stenmming from Spain, in the form of the Spanish
