Almost all Mexican workers receive Christmas bonuses called nguinaloYm which are sometime* spent on quick shopping (o San Anlonlo, Laredo and other shopping areas in Texas. President l,ui» Kcheverria has called on Mexican* to have pride in and purchase Mexican-made products rather than Imports. Those Mexicans who live within 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) of the border legally can and do purchase much of their daily necessities on the U.S. side. However, such items as electrical appliances cannot be purchased without paying stiff import duties. Hut it is the Mexican t*ho lives in the interior who legally can bring in more U S. products that is being stopped. Ihese Mexican* are referred to as "travelers." Although It would be difficult io find a copy of the legal list of articles a "traveler" can bring back to Mexico, it does exist. li allowed the purchase for a considerable amount of personal clofbing for a man or woman a* well as such items as a camera, a pair of binoculars, three toys for each travelling child and gifts valued up to 1,000 pesos <$#).» Most Mexican travelers are unaware of this list as. perhaps, Wder agents, of this, the Mexican traveler becomes more dependent on the attitude of the individual agent. What UMially happens is an agent decides 2 Mexican is returning with "too much" and impounds (he goods until the following day when the traveler mast "make a deal" on the duties to be paid. Mexican officials deny any new practice. "We're only enforcing the laws." said a spokesman for the Department of Industry and Commerce. Alvin man injured m-ar ln-re ..mjt-l lUmirr/ Htrrcra, "!
