If OH DAT, otrrEinfBER W, Blit'l'HKVlLLE (ARK.) COURIER NETT8 THREW Margaret Truman: U.S. Ambassador Who Showed Confidence to Europe Br DOUGLAS LAKSEN •nd ROSETTE HARGROVE (NEA Correspondents) (Flnt of Two Articles) The face that Margaret Truman *howed Europe was a smiling, composed, self-confident one. But there be was one Parisian who saw hei break down and cry. There were reasons for tears. t e had wanted her trip to vacation; she wanted to be average. tourist and see the sights. But she's the daughter of the President of the United States. And her trip turned out to be a semiofficial one, with all the strain and fatigue that goes with such an excursion. In Paris one day, it all got too much for her. At Jacques Griffe a fashion salon, saleswoman Anne Coppinger was showing her the latest Paris creations. "She was so tired and bewildered," recalls Mile. Coppinger. "that suddenly, m the midst of a fitting, she burst into tears. She quickly recovered, and implied that she had been under considerable strain, otherwise, she was just so gracious and polite, thanking everybody for their trouble." Mile. Coppinger was one of the few persons to see Miss Truman off her guard. Everyone else, from the stewards and bell-boys on the ship that took her overseas to the clerks and chambermaids in the European hotels where she stopped, recalls her as a warm, friendly, pleasant person. The moit freedom she encountered on the trip was the ocean voyage itself. Fellow passengers remember her strolling on the deck, roughly enjoying herself. It was- complete freedom, of course. here were always autograph-seekers, and she was a gracious victim. And there were two Secret Service men, following her wherever she went As the big, beautiful 63 America slid toward the dock in Southhampton, England, all the passengers leaned against the rails to get a glimpse of England, sparkling in the morning sun. Margaret Truman ttared Just as hard as any of them But minutes later,, the President's daughter was In a packed room ashor^ answering the questions of British reporters. In that time, she was forced to change from a care- tree American girl on a boat trip to the daughter of the Chief Executive, OR a semi-official tour. - rrom that point on, she ^was the object of stares and questions. No American, girl ha* ever toured Europe so thoroughly encased in a fish -bow*. Her trip was expertly purged ot any chance for romance or adventure. Before Margaret left she and the President had talked over some of , cathedrals she should mentioned several he had an artillery officer overseas World War T. However, \tht jld worM pomp and the formal re- Apllons so cluttered up Margaret's schedule that she only managed the mo«t cursory visit to a few land- and the President's ils appointment. Her stay in Paris i* i perfect «ample of what she was up against. ihe did almost everything that most girls who visit Paris do— unched at Maxim's, saw the Eiffel Tower, the Louyre, Versailles and a couple of dress • shows. But everywhere she was watched, accompan- ed and chaperoned. And there were certain official duties she had to fulfill—lunches, press conferences, dinners, state functions where she was a guest. One woman reporter asked her. Miss Truman, did you buy any other Paris dresses than those you bought at Jacques Griffe? 1 ' "You should know," Margaret Truman answered, with her ever- present smile, "because everywhere I have been I have seen you following me." Everyone in Paris likes her. They appreciated her graclousness, her lendy laugh, her simplicity, her sense of humor and the obvious Joy she gets out of life. But they decided she had no "oomph ** or grace or dazzle. * One Frenchwoman put It this way: "The freshness of extreme youth has gone and she has not yet attained the full bloom of maturity." Surprisingly. Parisians approved if the way she dressed. They had '.xpected the worst, since she was »nce voted (along with Rita Hayworth) one of America's worst- dressed women. Paris thought she md no real chic, but nevertheless vas an intelligent chooser of clothes. TRAVELER; Smiling and sell-confident, Margaret Truman waves a greeting as she arrives in England. She wanted to be an average tourist, but her trip turned out to be a semi-official visit.
