  • Description

    Vienna, July 1, - and Soviet Premier, Nikita Khrushchev - after a distinctly cool greeting from Vienna's crowds on his arrival - made one of his now almost traditional, unscheduled expeditions to meet "the man in the street".

    This time it was early - just after breakfast - and ignoring security arrangements, he walked with his wife Nina along the Ringstrasse - entering a Austria's main by Vienna's main boulevard - entering a subway containing ships.

    Said Khrushchev: We have subways like this in Moscow, but not with shops. If I'd seen this one first, we would also have had shops. We stopped to shake hands with passers by, visited an Espresso coffee bar, and at one point a small crowd applauded him. It was only restrained clapping, but Mr. Khrushchev had scored, again, even if undramatically.

    Later, he had talks with Chancellor Raab on Austrian reparations to the USSR, and Nina - accompanied by daughter Jelena - visited a fashion school. Some of the models shown amused Mrs. Khrushchev - others obviously interested her.

    Evening - and the Khrushchevs went to an official reception at the Schoenbrunn Palace. There to greet them were the Chancellor, Vice Chancellor Pittermann and President Schaerf.
