    Background: NIKITA KHRUSHCHEV, FORMER PRIME MINISTER OF THE USSR, STILL HAS HIS SUITS MADE BY AN ITALIAN TAILOR IN ROME. AND HE IS PAYING FOR THEM IN RELIGIOUS IKONS AND BIG BOXES OF CAVIAR.

    MR KHRUSHCHEV HAS HIS SUITS MADE BY SIGNOR LITRICO BEFORE HE WAS DEPOSED IN 1964, BUT HAS KEPT UP HIS CUSTOM SINCE.

    MR KHRUSHCHEV HAD HIS LAST SUIT AND A COAT DELIVERED ABOUT TWO MONTHS AGO. SIGNOR LITRICO IS AT PRESENT AT WORK ON ANOTHER JUST SUIT FOR HIM.

    ON THE LAST OCCASION, MR KHRUSHCHEV SETTLED THE ACCOUNT BY SENDING THE TAILOR AN IKON AND TWO KILLOGRAMMES (ABOUT 4 1/2 POUNDS) OF CAVIAR.

    SIGNOR LITRICO NOW HAS ABOUT 60 IKONS FROM THE FORMER PREMIER ALL OVER THE WALLS OF ONE ROOM OF HIS HOME.

    THE TAILOR SAID THAT MR KHRUSHCHEV'S DAUGHTER, RADA, HAD SAID, IN A RECENT LETTER ORDERING MORE CLOTHES, THAT HER FATHER HAD UNDERGONE A SECOND KIDNEY OPERATION ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO AND THAT HE WAS NOT WELL.

    SIGNOR LITRICO ALSO TAILORS FOR POPE PAUL, AS HE DID FOR THE LATE POPE JOHN. HE HAS ALSO MADE CLOTHING FOR THE LATE PRESIDENT JOHN KENNEDY AND FOR FORMER PRESIDENT EISENHOWER.
