      «CAPOEIRAS» IN THE «DIÁRIO DE NOTÍCIAS»
      17th April, 1959
      Diário de Notícias, RJ

      Yesterday on the terrace of «Organization Diário de Notícias» showed themselves the bahian «capoeiras» who were passing by Rio, in return from an excursion to Porto Alegre. Beside capoeiristas Vicente Pastinha (the Mestre), «Bigodinho», «João Mais Alto», «João Segundo», «Vivaldo» and Almiro, the delegation is composed of a group of girls of bahian society, who, although don't know how to «play», decorate it considerably. On the photo, mestre Pastinha (falling and raising a foot) shows us why he is still considered the best capoeirista in Salvador, despite his seventy years.
