  • Description

    The lightest moment since the arrival of Premier Nikita Khrushchev in New York came Sept 21, when - dressed in shirt sleeves - he appeared on the balcony of the Russian delegation's headquarters in Park Avenue and told reporters, " I am under house arrest", as they shouted questions up at him. Even harassed policemen laughed as he conducted an impromptu press conference through a female translator.

    A chorus of decision came from a large crowd that had assembled but Mr. Khrushchev -- with Foreign Minister Gromyko by his side -- said: "They must be the wisest people in America - those who shout loudest are the wisest."
