    Background: President Eisenhower June 29 toured the first major scientific and cultural exhibition held by the Soviet Union in the United States. Vice-president Nixon attended the same day opening ceremony by Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Frol Kozlov. The exhibition on three floors of New York's most modern exhibit on building is under the slogan of Peace, contains models of 'Sputniks', missiles, building development and cars.

    Mr. Kozlov waited in the lobby to greet the President. Police in shirt sleeves and with drawn truncheons tried to bring order among clamouring newsmen seeking close-up pictures.

    Vice-president Nixon, accompanying the President, took part in the official ceremony later in the day. Both keenly-eyed the Soviet exhibits. The first inspected was the cosmic sputnik which Deputy Premier Kozlov said was now in orbit round the sun. The President stayed an hour.

    President Eisenhower's gesture in attending the show before it opened matches the one made by Russian Premier Khruschev last month at the U.S. Exhibition in Moscow to be opened by Vice-president Nixon July 25.
