    Background: The American National Exhibition in Sokolniki Park, Moscow, was still far from completion, July 21. The 400 American, Russian, Italian and Finnish workers on site have been assisted by the 83 American guides, who will show visitors round the exhibition.

    US Vice-President Richard Nixon is due in Moscow, July 24, for a preview opening. The public will be admitted the following day.

    Exhibits range from colour television to the 'Miracle Kitchen'. Every facet, or nearly all, of American Life is on show.

    This prestige show reciprocates with that held in New York last month by the Russian Government.

    In preparation for this USSR tour, Vice-President Nixon, accompanied by his wife, is taking lessons in the Russian language. Throughout the visit Mr. and Mrs. Nixon will be accompanied by US Navy's nuclear expert and 'father' of the USN nuclear-powered submarines, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover.
