Salvadoran President Jose Napoleon Duarte, stricken with inoperable stomach cancer, has returned to Washington for a fourth round of chemotherapy, the third such treatment in the United States. A spokesman told reporters that Duarte, 62, will be treated at Walter Reed Army Hospital. Although the chemotherapy has taken a visible toll on Duarte’s appearance he recently vowed to “personally hand over the presidency June 1 to whomever wins the upcoming 1989 presidential elections.”
