Londoners were snickering last week over a story involving a recent visitor to their city: Russia's Nikita Khrushchev. Once he asked a student in Moscow: "Who wrote Anna Karenina?"
"Not me," answered the terrified student quickly. "I didn't do it."
This answer so distressed Comrade Khrushchev that he sent at once for the Soviet police chief and lectured him roundly on his outdated terroristic methods. Next day the chastened police chief returned and explained that the matter was all settled.
"How?" asked Khrushchev. "What did you do?"
"I interviewed the student myself," was the reply, "and he finally admitted that he did write Anna Karenina."
