  • Description

    Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of the United States President, sailed into the old port of Epidaurus June 8 on the first stop of her three-day cruise around the islands of Greece aboard the yacht 'Northwind', loaned to her by Greek shipowner Marcos Nemikos.

    School children with large bouquets of flowers welcomed her as she stopped ashore accompanied by her sister, Princess Radziwill. From the Poet, Mrs. Kennedy drove to Epidaurus Ancient Theatre, some 12 miles from the Port, where she admired the famous theatre and heard a girl's chorus recite verses of the ancient drama "Electra".

    Mrs. Kennedy and her sister and brother-in-law, Princess and Prince Radziwill, arrived in Athens from London June 7 for a nine-day private visit. She had accompanied her husband, President Kennedy, on hi recent European tour, and was resting after the strain. Her husband too was suffering from strain. Reports from Washington June 8 said he strained his back in a tree-planting ceremony in Ottawa May 16, and may have to use crutches for a while, His personal physician says it is not a slipped disc, and should right itself after rest.
