REPORTER WALTER CRONKITE (voice):
Then Nixon and Khrushchev continued their tour of the United States exhibition, halting at a kitchen. There they held what’s becoming to be known as the ‘kitchen summit conference’, discussing the capitalist attitude toward women. The Soviet premier looked at a washing machine and said that the Russians had such things too but he didn’t share the capitalistic preoccupation with making life easier for women. On and on they talked about wine and jazz, both agreed they didn’t like jazz.

They got around again to international tensions, the premier proposing a toast to elimination of all military bases in foreign lands. Nixon said he couldn’t go along with this. Khrushchev was not to be deterred. Forcefully he declared: ‘If you’re not willing to eliminate bases then I won’t drink this toast.’

Nixon replied instantly: ‘I don’t like this wine.’ And Khrushchev: ‘I like this wine but not the policy.’

But the two men did agree to drink to the ladies, as in no special ladies, just all ladies.

REPORTER RON COCHRAN, CBS NEWS:
And so, it went. This is Ron Cochran, in New York.
