(Studio) President Nixon en route to China from Guam, where he spent last night. He will stop in Shanghai to take on Chinese navigator, then on to Peking, where he will be greeted by leaders of China.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(Peking, China) A correct, but unenthusiastic greeting planned for Nixon. Anti-American slogans have been removed. (Hangchow, China) New airport, erected in 2 mos., and grounds dressed as China's tourist attraction. Average Chinese haven't been told much about Nixon visit.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Studio) Direct satellite communications will enable live coverage of Nixon's arrival in Peking tonight.
