  • Description

    Linz, July 4, second day of his 600-mile "see Austria by bus" tour, Soviet Premier Khrushcev - after another of his informal early-morning meet-the-people walks - visited the town's big nationalised Voest iron and steel works. The workers' welcomes polite but restrained. With Khrushchev was his wife.

    The factory produces 2 million tons of steel annually and receives some of its coke and iron ore from Russia, and exports steel sheet there.

    The "LD" oxygen injection steel-making method - originated here and now used on a world-wide scale - was demonstrated. Voest works - formerly the Hermann Goering works - was destroyed by American bombs and rebuilt after the war.
