    Background: M. Mikoyan, filmed by Visnews Jan 14, drove from the Russian U.N. delegation's headquarters into the giant New York store on Macy's, with a posse of uniformed police, and Russian and American plainclothesmen. In the bargain basement he poked and peered at silverware, potato peelers, kitchen, tables, chairs, cast a glance at period furniture, commented it was junk, but praised the modern furniture.

    Then he swept out the store, beamed, waved his hat high in the air, forged a way through the encircling detectives and made for Wall Street and lunch with ruling bankers.

    M.Mikoyan was making just one more of his lightning visits to typical American institutions - visits that have left the public applauding. His winning manner has earned him unprecedented prestige --- and an invitation to the White House this weekend.
