Leningrad fanfare greets American 'peace baby'
Californians Gerald Krumland and Ana Costa, who say they had their first baby in the Soviet Union as a gesture toward world peace, presented the baby Tuesday for a well-publicized birth registration ceremony.
The ceremony is standard for newborns in the Soviet Union. It was held at the ornate Dvorets Malyutka - Palace of Infants - with piped-in Tchaikovsky music, a Soviet matron wearing a hammer-and-sickle banner, and an honorary Leningrad citizenship medal for the ''peace baby.''
Five-day-old Alexander slept blissfully throughout.
