    Background: In Paris the memory of the late American President John Kennedy was perpetuated today when a street was named after him. Parisians in future will speak of the Quai de Passy as Kennedy Avenue. The road, running along the right bank of the Seine, is one of the French capital's more fashionable areas.

    Mrs. Kennedy arrived in Paris on Sunday night to be present for unveiling of the plaque. The decision to rename the road Kennedy Avenue followed shortly after the assassination and was France's tribute to a respected leader.
