WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1969 Nixon Plans j Annenberg Ambassador To Britain? By FRANK CORMIER Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) — President-elect Nixon is expected to name millionaire publisher Walter Annenberg to be ambassador to Britain, one of the major diplomatic assignments. Nixon aides, in keeping with their usual practice, declined to comment publicly on the matter. However one said he did! not anticipate announcement of any ambassadorial nominations until after Nixon is inaugurated Jan. 20. There was no comment, either, on speculation that former Sen. Kenneth Keating, a New York Republican who is now a state judge, might be nominated as ambassador to Israel, Annenberg is owner and publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer and a number of other publications. David K. E. Bruce has been ambassador to Britain for nearly eight years—since the start of the Kennedy administration. Now 70, Bruce is considered the dean of American diplomats. The London post usually is given to men of great wealth, because the expense of maintaining the embassy's social standards far exceed available federal funds. Nixon had no announced-in- advance appointments for today but planned to spend most of his time in his office at the Hotel Pierre. In brisk weather Monday evening, Nixon walked after dark along Fifth Avenue to his apartment, unrecognized by mist of the hundreds of passersby. He paused to inspect the display windows of one department store that featured full length paintings of Nixon and other prominent Republicans, each flanked by a suggested inaugural-ball gown. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Monday that Nixon is considering former Rep. Thomas B. Curtis, a Missouri Republican, as chief U.S. trade nego-, tiator, a job that carries ambas-' sadorial rank. Curtis was one of, the congressional negotiators' during Kennedy-round tariff talks in Geneva. Til*: IlECJISTKR-NKVVS — AIT. VERNON. ILLINOIS 7— B Park Avenue Rat Colony NEW YORK (AP) — A colony of rats apparently is entrenched on the center strip of fashionable Park Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets. Buildings on the block house expensive apartment dwellings and hotels. After residents reported seeing more than 100 of the rodents foraging in trash cans and tunneling into the grassy avenue divider, Health Department workers scattered rat poison in the area. The Penn Central Railroad has been asked to search its tunnel under the paving for possible nesting sites. One woman living in the area commented Sunday: "The idea of rats crawling around on children in the ghetto really hits home when you see them on ' Park Avenue."
