    MS-Russian Ambassador Yakolov's big Buick, in parking lot. This Buick, incidentally, is identical with the Buick of United States Ambassador to Ceylon H.Maxwell Gluck. The Russians got theirs after the U.S.Buick arrived. "Equality" is being stretched so far that recently when U.S.Ambassador Gluck sent his Buick to the garage to be greased, the USSR Buick soon appeared beside it! at the garage, for a grease job.
