1. No photographs of Khrushchev's visit to the farm were ever taken. Use Photos 3a and 3b and John Eisenhower’s description in Reading 2, to visualize Khrushchev’s visit. Would the setting create a comfortable environment, and could that be helpful in lessening tensions? Why or why not?

2. What evidence of Eisenhower's hobbies do you see?

3. In what ways do you think talking with Khrushchev in this room would have been advantageous to Eisenhower?

* The images on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain high resolution versions of the Photo 3a and Photo 3b, but be aware that the entire files will take as much as a minute to load with a 28.8K modem.
