The World

October 30, 1985

Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos jogged and played golf in an apparent effort to dispel reports that he is gravely ill. The 68-year-old Marcos was shown on the state network's nightly newscast, jogging on the palace golf course. Marcos has denied that he is suffering from a kidney ailment, and a spokesman said that a report that he has a fatal form of lupus is wrong and "old hash." The ailment, lupus erythematosus, is incurable and debilitating but not fatal, as reported earlier.
