From discussions with Khruschev, and the people's bouquets in Warsaw, Vice-President Richard Nixon returned to the U.S. in a Boeing 707, August 5. At the National Airport Washington, Nixon and his wife Patricia won a warm welcome from some 2000 people headed by acting State Secretary Dillon and the Nixon's daughter Julie.
With kisses for Julie and strong handshakes from welcoming officials all the way to a dais from which he gave first impressions of his two week tour, Nixon then left for the White House to see President Eisenhower.
In his first words at the airport, Nixon spoke of the outpouring of friendliness he encountered in Russia and Poland. In the interests of peace with justice, he appealed to Americans to show the same courtesy to Mr. Khruschev on his forthcoming American visit as the people and leaders of Russia had shown him.
He said he appreciated many Americans felt strongly about Mr. Khrushchev and would like to show their attitude during his visit but it was important to create the best possible climate for his discussions with the President which could have a great bearing on the issues of peace.
