Kozlov was warmly wel- comed by business execu- tives despite a snub from the city's mayor. On a fore- noon tour there were no un- friendly demonstrations. At the Ford Motor' Co., Kozlov was greeted by the president, 'Henry Ford If, and the board chairman, Er- nest R. Breech. Ford remarked that it was "good to talk things over." Kozlov replied: "Al! questions can be re- solved by negotiations." Kozlov asked Ford about production and rord said it was way up over a year ago. 'The economy of our country is going ahead very Ford said. "Business is very good." Ford personally showed Kozlov the company's new "Levacar." Kozlov refused to get into car that rides on air because he in- sisted that Ford get in with him. The bubble top ex- perimental model holds only one passenger. A company guide demon- strated the car which floats on a thin layer of air.' Kozlov asked Ford to let him know when he gets into production on the new cars. He said: "It would save us money in Russia. We ,would not have to build roads for them." Earlier Kozlov loured the Detroit Edison River Rouge power plant. COUNCILMAN Gerald Desmond, who last week in- dicated he would oppose the wall, was absent.
