  • Description

    Since the arrival of the Communist leaders in New York the city police have been hard pressed to keep demonstrations under control, but for the first time, Oct 3, a group of American Trade Union members paraded with banners in support Mr. Khrushchev. Both mounted on foot policemen were needed to keep the crowd moving as the demonstrated in 67th street.

    Holding placards with slogans such as "New York Trade Unions welcome Khrushchev visit" and "East West trade for jobs" the demonstrators marched in line. They claimed to represent a group of Trade Union associations that had banded together for the occasion.

    Only one street away another mob of demonstrators paraded outside the Russian Embassy in 68th Street and Park Avenue. This time the slogans were "Khrushchev the murderer" and other anti-communist expressions. As has happened in the past few weeks the demonstrators mixed in with the crowd of spectators making the work of the police all the harder.

    Russian cameramen were on hand to film the pro-communist gathering but failed to turn up for the more hostile crowd.
