Mayor Corona del Rosal said he personally considered the contamination of city drinking water "a more serious problem" than smog. He said drinking contaminated water is responsible for many cases of acute diarrhea, which causes death among infants. All Mexico City hotels provide bottles of purified water for their guests. The mayor said the city commission will coordinate its efforts with a federal commission which was appointed several months ago. Mexico City is the only place in Mexico with a serious smog problem. The members of the city commission have already made study trips abroad to such cities as New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. The mayor said automobiles with faulty exhausts are causing much of the smog problem. The problem is worse during the dry season (October May) than during the rainy season (June - September) when rains beat down some of the smog. During the dry season, visibility is often less than a block in Mexico City. Mr. and Mrs. Goodwin Couple wed for 50 years Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Goodwin, 1025 E.
