16-Palm Beach Post, Monday, Nov. 25, 1968 Nixon Said Considering Lodge To Replace Harriman In Paris f f : v- - -.- i i f! 'If By NICHOLAS DAMLOFF WASHINGTON (UPI) -President-elect Richard M. Nixon, in his promised sha-keup of the State Department, may appoint Henry Cabot Lodge to replace W. Averell Harriman as chief U.S. negotiator at the Paris peace talks, sources said Sunday. Lodge's appointment would seem logical because he is a Republican Harriman is a Democrat and twice served as U.S. ambassador to South Vietnam. Also, he was the GOP vice presidential candidate when Nixon lost the 1960 presidential race to John V. Kennedy. Now U.S. ambassador to West Germany, Lodge, 66. returned to the United States four days after the election and conferred with Nixon at Key Biscayne, Fla.; about Vietnam and Western Europe. It is diplomatic practice that all American ambassadors, who serve as personal representatives of the President, submit their resignations to the new administration, which then decides which ones will be asked to remain. Some influential politicians are named ambassadors for services rendered the victorious party. And when changes are desired in ambassadorial posts in London and Paris, personal wealth is a major consideration because envoys there have been known to spend as much as $50,000 a year of their own money for entertainment. Here is an outlook on possible changes at major U.S. embassies: London Ambassador David K. E. Bruce, 70; independently wealthy; career officer since 1925; has served as ambassador to Paris and Bonn; is expected to retire. Former Pennsylvania Gov, William W. Scranton has been mentioned as a possible replacement. Moscow Ambassador Llewellyn E. Thompson, 64; career foreign service officer and longtime Soviet specialist. Has served twice in Moscow as ambassador. 1957-1960 and 1966 to the present. He is much admired by Nixon who might want to keep him on despite his strong wish to retire. Saigon Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker, 72; a smooth, skillful, silent New Engender; first appointed an ambassador by President Harry S Truman in 1951 to Argentina; may be asked to stay on, at least at first, because of his abilities at mediation and negotiation. Paris Ambassador R. Sargent Shriver, 53, a member of the Kennedy clan; a loyal Democrat; former director of the Peace Corps and Office of Economic Opportunity: expected to return to private business; his replacement is not yet known. Tokyo Ambassador U. Alexis Johnson, 60: a career foreign service officer; ambassador to Japan since 1966. Has five more years in the service before mandatory retirement and may remain in Tokyo. New Delhi - Ambassador Chester Bowles, 67; a former governor of Connecticut and a liberal Democrat; has served twice as envoy to India, 1951-1953 and again beginning 1963. Expected to retire.

The two states, along with seven others, imposed the restrictions alter a Circuit Court judge ruled the program unconstitutional.
