Background: Continuing his Latin - American odyssy, Vice-President Nixon, who arrived here yesterday from Lima, spent today out and about with the people of Quito, Ecuador.
He answered a spate of questions from insistent students and autographed for a host of youngsters.
At first Mr Nixon's tribulations in Latin America were first seen in Washington simply as just more evidence of the Communists' ability to organize mobs, but continuing incidents have provoked second thoughts an are being recognized as something far more serious and significant.
Most official Washington now takes the view that the anti-Nixon demonstrations were "evidence of open and continuing animosity towards this country and its policies."
There has been for a long time in Washington a tendency to act the stern father towards wayward Latin American States, and some members of Congress are now saying that the reciprocal trade Act, now before the House, will be used to express the resentment felt at the insults hurled at Mr Nixon in Lima and elsewhere, and through him at the President and the country.
