cold war President Eisenhower and Nixon banked on the vice presidents tour and the forthcoming swap of visits byEisen hower and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to help thaw a dangerous EastWest freeze The administration policy was admittedly a gamble taken a against advice from some U S strategists who favor continued isolation of the Reds as the surest way to promote the free world The hope was that the exchange of visits would impress Khrush chev with America and keep East West discussions going in the face of the collapse of the Geneva talks on Germany But Nixons trip brought no expectation of any immediate turnabout in Kremlin policy in the cold war which the administration figures could last another 25 to 50 years Nixon who already had cabled back lengthy reports during his

Officials Nix Statements About Khrush WASHINGTON gov ernment officials appeared today have adopted a policy line of avoiding harsh statements about Soviet Premier Nikita Khrush chev It is obviously an effort to cre ate a favorable climate insofar as possible for Khrushchevs visit here next month Along that same line was the plea by Vice Presi dent Richard M Nixon on his return from the Soviet Union
