    Background: It was the turn of President Eisenhower of the United States of America to take the town of New York by storm Sept 22nd, after days of publicized activity by Khrushchev, Castro, and other 'guests'. And New Yorkers seized the chance to demonstrate their feelings. Though not large crowds, they were enthusiastic and vociferous as Ike came to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, the Headquarters of the US Mission to the U.N. After short consultations, Ike took to his bubble-top Lincoln limousine and rode through the streets to the United Nations Building.

    Castro, strongly pursuing his line of friendship with the Communists spent the pre-session moments in conversation with Mr. Gomulka of Poland. Khrushchev made his usual smiling entrance. Eisenhower did not sit at the United States Delegates table to await the start of the session, but strode straight to the lower podium, and there made his speech.

    Later Ike met with the other member countries of the Organisation of American States at luncheon in the Waldorf Astoria. Conspicuously absent from the guest list were Cuba and Dominica. Though Ike had promised there would be no speech he said something of his affection for the people of Latin America.
