  • Description

    MR. KHRUSHCHEV'S VISIT TO ALEXANDRIA: COOLER BREEZES PERHAPS IN THIS MEDITERRANEAN CITY, BUT A WELCOME NONE THE LESS WARMLY ENTHUSIASTIC THAN THOSE RECEIVED IN CAIRO, ASWAN AND PORT SAID.

    THE SOVIET PREMIER AND HIS WIFE TRAVELLED FROM CAIRO BY TRAIN, ACCOMPANIED BY PRESIDENT NASSER AND HIS WIFE. FROM THE STATION THEY DROVE THROUGH STREETS CROWDED WITH CHEERING PEOPLE, OFTEN UNDER A STORM OF PAPER STRIPS AND STREAMERS.

    MR. KHRUSHCHEV BECAME THE FIRST STATE GUEST IN THE FORMER PALACE AT ALEXANDRIA FROM WHICH KING FAROUK LEFT WHEN HE WAS EXILED IN 1952. THE PALACE, KNOWN AS THE RIS EL-TIN, IS A COMPLEX OF BUILDINGS ON THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE CITY, PART OF WHICH IS NOW USED AS A MUSEUM, WHILE ANOTHER HAS BEEN GIVEN TO THE U.A.R. NAVY.

    TODAY (FRIDAY), THE SOVIET PREMIER HAS DRIVEN OUT INTO THE DESERT TO INSPECT A LAND RECLAMATION PROJECT THAT IS MAKING THE DESERT BLOOM. MR. KHRUSHCHEV WILL BE RETURNING TO MOSCOW ON MONDAY.
