    A DAY OF SMILES AND HANDSHAKING FOR THE SOVIET PREMIER, MR. KHRUSHCHEV, NEARING THE END OF HIS FIVE-DAY VISIT TO DENMARK. THE HIGHLIGHT TODAY WAS A TWO-HOUR MEETING IN COPENHAGEN WITH DANISH PRIME MINISTER, MR. JENS OTTO KRAG.

    AFTER THE MEETING A JOINT COMMUNIQUE WAS ISSUED WHICH STRESSED THE DESIRE OF BOTH DENMARK AND RUSSIA TO INCREASE TRADE BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES. THE COMMUNIQUE ALSO REVEALED THAT AN AGREEMENT ON AN EXCHANGE OF SCIENTISTS IN AGRICULTURE AND TECHNOLOGY HAD BEEN REACHED OF THE TWO LEADERS. TURNING TO QUESTIONS OF WORLD AFFAIRS GENERALLY, THE COMMUNIQUE SAID "THE PARTIES CONSIDER IT ESSENTIAL THAT THE UNITED NATIONS SHOULD BE STRENGTHENED AND FURTHER DEVELOPED AS AN INSTRUMENT FOR RELAXATION OF INTERNATIONAL TENSION AND AS A FORUM FOR THE DISCUSSION OF INTERNATIONAL PROBLEMS."
    THE TALKS, HELD IN A CORDIAL ATMOSPHERE, WERE ATTENDED BY THE SOVIET FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. GROMYKO AND BY SENIOR DANISH GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES.

    A DOCKYARD LAUNCHING OF A NEW SHIP BUILT BY DENMARK FOR RUSSIA WAS ALSO ON TODAY'S (SATURDAY) PROGRAMME. THE LAUNCHING CEREMONY WAS PERFORMED BY MRS. KHRUSHCHEV -- WHO CAME TO A MILD DISAGREEMENT WITH HER HUSBAND ON HOW THE SHIP SHOULD BE LAUNCHED. MRS. KHRUSHCHEV TOOK THE RED-RIBBONED BOTTLE IN HER LEFT-HAND AND WAS ABOUT TO SMASH IT AGAINST THE SHIP WHEN HER HUSBAND TOLD HER: " YOU SHOULD HOLD THE BOTTLE IN YOUR RIGHT HAND".

    BUT MRS. KHRUSHCHEV INSISTED THAT LEFT WAS RIGHT AND PROCEEDED WITH THE CEREMONY.

    THE NEW SHIP IS A REFRIGERATED OF 2,550 TONS AND HAS BEEN NAMED THE "SKAZOCHNIK ANDERSON" AFTER THE FAMOUS DANISH WRITER OF FAIRY TALES. THE SHIP IS TO COLLECT THE CATCHES OF THE SOVIET FISHING FLEETS AND WILL TRANSPORT THEM HOME. IT CONTAINS SPECIAL EQUIPMENT FOR CLEANING AND DEEP-FREEZING THE FISH ON THE WAY.
