Sto. Niño, scores stranded
in Neg. Or. due to ‘Marce'
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

The pilgrim image of the Sto. Niño (Child Jesus) was stranded in Dumaguete yesterday, and several Charter Day activities of the city were cancelled, as Negros Oriental got ready for typhoon Marce, which is expected to cut across the province and other parts of the Visayas today.

Scores of people were stranded due to the cancellation of sea travel to and from Dumaguete City and other points of Negros Oriental. Many of them were hoping to be able to attend the Charter Day and fiesta celebration of Dumaguete City yesterday and today, respectively.

Also stranded in Dumaguete is the pilgrim image of the Sto. Niño (Child Jesus) which was en route to Cebu from Dipolog City, Msgr. Julius Perpetuo Heruela said .
