  • Description

    THE MUCH-TRAVELLED AND MUCH-PUBLICIZED PETER TOWNSEND, WHOSE ROMANCE WITH PRINCESS MARGARET OF BRITAIN GOT ALMOST AS MUCH NEWSPAPER SPACE AS THE LOVE AFFAIR OF HER UNCLE EDWARD, ARRIVED IN TOKYO OVER THE WEEK-END... ANOTHER STOP IN HIS ROUND-THE-WORLD TOUR.

    THE ARRIVAL HAD MORE THAN A PASSING INTEREST FOR REPORTERS AT TOKYO AIRPORT, BECAUSE THE NEWSMEN WANTED TO SEE THE GIRL RUMOURED TO BE TOWNSEND'S. LATEST ROMANTIC INTEREST. TOWNSEND IS TOURING WITH A FRENCH FILM CREW, PREPARING A SPECIAL COMMERCIAL FILM. AND THE GIRL -- MARIE-LUCE JAMANGE (CQ) -- IS A PHOTOGRAPHER WITH THE GROUP.

    THE LARGE GROUP OF PHOTOGRAPHERS AND NEWSMEN IRKED TOWNSEND SOMEWHAT, BUT THE PETITE, FAIR-SKINNED PHOTOGRAPHER SEEMED ONLY SLIGHTLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE HUBBUB AT THE AIRPORT.

    AT A NEWS CONFERENCE, THE FORMER HERO OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN, WAS DEFINITE ABOUT TWO POINTS.

    HE HAS NO INTENTION OF GOING BACK TO BRITAIN. AND ON THE SUBJECT OF MARIE LUCE -- TOWNSEND SAID: "I HAVE NO INTENTION OF MARRYING ANYONE." HIS PRIMARY CONCERN NOW, SAID TOWNSEND, IS TO COMPLETE THE DOCUMENTARY FILMS HE AND HIS GROUP HAVE BEEN MAKING. THEY WILL BE IN THE TOKYO AREA ABOUT TEN DAYS AND THEN WILL GO N TO AUSTRALIA, THE UNITED STATES AND PERU.

    AND IF TOWNSEND THINKS HE RANK INTO SOME EMBARRASSING QUESTIONS AT THE TOKYO AIRPORT...JUST WAIT UNTIL HE MEETS THE HARD-BITTEN NEW YORK REPORTORIAL CORPS AWAITING HIS ARRIVAL IN THE UNITED STATES.

    THE LATEST IN THE ROMANTIC SAGA OF CAPTAIN PETER TOWNSEND.
