Mr. Khrushchev suggested they drink to several women standing by.

Nixon: "A good nonpolitical drink."

Bystander: "A hundred years of life for Mr. Khrushchev."

Nixon: "I will drink to that. We disagree with your policy, but we want you to be of good health. May you live to be a hundred years old."

Mr. Khrushchev said he would accept the toast, adding: "At ninety-nine years of age we shall discuss the question further. Why should we be in haste?"

Nixon: "Ninety-nine years [and] you will still be in power? -- and without an election?"


3. America Accepts the Challenge"38

I am honored on behalf of President Eisenhower to open this American Exhibition in Moscow.

Mrs. Nixon and I were among the many thousands of Americans who were privileged to visit the splendid Soviet Exhibition in New York, and we want to take this opportunity to congratulate the people of the U.S.S.R. for the great achievements and progress so magnificently portrayed by your Exhibition.

We, in turn, hope that many thousands of Soviet citizens will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about life in the United States by visiting our Exhibition.

Of course we both realize that no exhibition can portray a complete picture of all aspects of life in great nations like the U.S.S.R. and the United States.
