    THERE WERE MASSIVE SECURITY PRECAUTIONS AS THE JULES RIMET CUP -- THE WORLD CUP -- ARRIVED IN MEXICO CITY ON THURSDAY HIGHT. IT WAS CARRIED BY DENNIS FOLLOWS OF THE ENGLISH FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION.

    THE SOLID GOLD CUP WAS STOLEN DURING THE LAST WORLD CUP TOURNEY IN ENGLAND IN 1966. IT WAS UNEARTHED FROM THE GARDEN OF A LONDON HOUSE SHORTLY BEFORE THE START OF THE CONTEST BY A MONGREL DOG, PICKLES.

    AT THE AIRPORT THE CUP WAS HANDED OVER TO FIVE SECURITY GUARDS. IT WAS THEN DRIVEN IN A TIGHTLY GUARDED CONVOY TO A BANK THREE MILES AWAY IN THE CITY WHERE IT WAS LOCKED IN A DYNAMITE-PROOF VAULT.

    TIGHT SECURITY IS IN FORCE AT THE BANK, AND THERE WILL BE CONSTANT SURVEILLANCE BY ARMED GUARDS.
