    SCU TITOV (SOF) (INTERPRETED):-



    HAVE YOU READ THE RECENT MESSAGE OF MR. KHRUSHCHEV TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.A., KENNEDY/ IT IS CLEARLY STATED THERE, AND COLONEL GLENN WILL APPROVE, THAT THE COSMIC SHIPS ARE BOOSTED INTO SPACE BY MEANS OF MILITARY ROCKETS.



    "NOWADAYS SUPER-HEAVY SHIPS ARE BOOSTED INTO SPACE BY MORE POWERFUL ROCKETS WHICH-AS COMPARED TO THOSE WHICH ARE USED FOR MILITARY PURPOSES. AND IN THIS MESSAGE, IT WAS STATED THAT THE SOONER WE COME TO AN AGREEMENT IN THE QUESTION OF DISARMAMENT THE SOONER WE'LL VISIT EACH OTHER AND THE QUICKER AND WITH PLEASURE I WILL FLY TOGETHER WITH COLONEL GLENN INTO SPACE. AND IF YOU UNDERSTOOD ME CORRECTLY THEN YOU'LL KNOW THE QUESTION OF THE QUESTIONS IS THE QUESTION OF ARMAMENT, OF DISARMAMENT."

    SCU GLENN: "WE SHARE OUR INFORMATION QUITE OPENLY, AS ALL OF YOU ARE AWARE. THE BOOKLETS WE PASSED OUT TODAY HAD VERY COMPLETE REPORTING. IT'S OUR OPINION THAT WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO HAVE DISARMAMENT BEFORE WE SHARE OPINIONS LIKE THIS. THIS IS FROM THIS COUNTRY, OF COURSE."



    "OUR IDEA IS THAT THE SOONER WE CAN ALL SHARE THIS, THE SOONER IT MAY BE THE VERY - THE VERY ENJOYABLE FACT - THAT MAJOR TITOV AND I COULD MAKE A SPACE MISSION TOGETHER. AND I CERTAINLY LOOK FORWARD TO THAT DAY."
