There was news of a robbery at the Empacadora Alanís: Unfaithful employees took out merchandise that they then sold to buyers who were also arrested. El Heraldo del Norte published: “… Very favorable comments have been made among businessmen, because despite the amount of what was stolen, Messrs. Alanís once again demonstrated their magnanimity by not taking any criminal action against their delinquent former employees. Lic.

The publication in the cultural supplement of El Heraldo of the article “Manuel Acuña” was announced, by Javier Guerra Escandón, and the poems “Lend me your fine hand” and “Tribute to Manuel Acuña”, “poems by Fidencia Flores”.
