DIPLOMATICALLY SPEAKING The Lemuses End Rigorous Visit By AMELIA YOUNG Bi«r Staff Writer The President of El Sal vador and Mrs. Jose Maria Lemus left Washington for New York this morning, after a rigorous three days here which proved almost too much for the youthful first lady last night. Mrs. Lemus reportedly warned by her physician, be cause of high blood pressure, to take it easy on this state visit kept going steadily from 9:45 a m. on yesterday. In the evening she and President Lemus were hon ored by the Ambassador of El Salvador and Mrs. Castro at a reception in the Pan American Union. Prom 4:30 to 5 o’clock, they received members of the Washington diplomatic corps. Then the general guests began streaming in. After standing in the line for another 25 minutes, Mrs. Lemus had to retire to a private room in the Union with Mrs. Alfredo Ortiz Mancia, wife of El Salvador’s Minister of Foreign Rela tions. The line dispersed completely at 5:45 and the Lemuses left for the Presi dent's Guest House. While smiling graciously as she met early arrivals, the 32-year-old President’s wife could not hide the strain—her face was flushed and at one ooint an ankle gave way under her. The programs for official visits are notoriously stren uous. And this was by no means the first time a ma jor participant has shown the effects. One President’s wife was driven to tears at a public function here by an unexpected demand: numer ous other visitors have .had to take to private lounges, or at least a nearby chair, for unscheduled breathing spells. MRS. LEMUS, it should be noted, leads a very full life back in El Salvador—at home. ■ 8 o b 8 v 8" r ~s n Tr tr are all wrapped up ft ' In Spring /| \I tK. • t , And beautifully, too, in a sweep aw $■ I of honey comb wool that’s f m jSt ' * , all the more new-season for its Jfm/Pw' £ lush shades of gold, light blue, V- |A Jw/ t beige or navy.
