First Lady to Leave for World Trip Friday

Mar. 6, 1962 - Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy was reported today to be responding to treatment for the low-grade sinus infection that caused a postponement of her trip to India and Pakistan. She was examined in Washington by Dr. G.W. Taylor, a nose and throat specialist at the Bethesda Naval Hospital who has been treating her since mid-February. “He finds she has responded to treatment, antibiotics, and has had no fever since she started taking the medication,” Mrs. Kennedy’s press secretary, Miss Pamela Turnure, reported. She is “much improved,” but not completely over the infection, and will continue to take medication during her trip abroad, Miss Turnure added. The President’s wife is scheduled to leave Friday.
