Muccio, career diplomat and first American ambassador to South Korea, was reported today to have run into a roadblock in Congress. The New York Herald Tribune said he is reportedly being blocked for nomination to an important assignment because he once offended a congressman. The situation became known last night when a State Department official revealed that the department was reluctant to place Muccio's name before the Senate, a Washington dispatch to the Herald Tribune said. The New York Times said Muccio "faces congressional opposition that may bar him from any assignment requiring Senate confirmation." A Times Washington dispatch by Walter H. Waggoner said: "The opposition as it can affect Mr. Muccio's career centers on Sen. Styles Bridges, Republican of New Hampshire and chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. "It originates, however, with Eep. Hugh D. Scott Jr., a Republican of Pennsylvania. Mr. Scott made a trip to the Far East late in 1950 as a Naval Reserve officer and returned with unfavorable opinions on Mr. Muccio, then ambassador to Korea . . ." Situation Unkown Muccio, asked about the Washington reports, said there that he did not know of any opposition from Bridges to any post requiring Senate confirmation. Muccio said he knows of no diplomatic nomination pending. Bridges was unavailable for comment. State Department sources said they did not know of the reported situation concerning Muccio. There was no immediate comment from Bridges and Scott. Muccio, who returned to the United States in 1952, has been assigned by the State Department recently to duties including United Nations assignments and treaty revision negotiations with Panama. The Herald Tribune story said Muccio is reported to have offended Scott, former chairman of the Republican National Committee and one of the first supporters of President Eisenhower's candidacy. "Rep. Scott," the story continued. "visited Korea in August 1950. He came back- with the report that Mr. Muccio had told him that the United States entered the Korean War not to fight Communists ,but to resist simple aggression. Mr Muccio says he believes that Rep. Scott misquoted him . . ." The Herald Tribune also quoted a State Department official as saying that no security charge is pending. • British Like Audrey, Too LONDON (Pi — The British think Audrey Hepburn's tops too.

Congress must meet annually on Jan. 3 unless, by law, it appoints another day. • • DOllMMMSfl THEN IT'S MAYTAG FOR YOU! 129 U7., Pigeons Move in, Man Moves Out-But Who Should Pay Rent? LOS ANGELES CK—A retired telegraph clerk has .asked Mayor Norris Poulson to help finance his real-life saga of "The Egg and I." Harry Reade, 65, wrote the mayor that a pigeon couple has set up housekeeping in his room and produced one egg. "Since I am not inclined to disturb or frustrate the act of God," he wrote, "I was therefore compelled to relinquish my room and pay again rent for still another room." With novel legal logic, he contends that since the city protects the birds against shooting, the city actually owns them. Thus since city property, has forced him to rent another room, he states, the city should accept the financial responsibility, until after the egg is hatched. Accompanying the letter was a rent receipt for $35. Nest Built Reade told a newsman yesterday that he left the window of his room open for health reasons and about 10 days ago he noticed a small egg in a corner on the floor. "Soon the mother and father pigeon came with straw and began to build a nest around it," he said. "The mother bird—she's very nice—has stayed in the room ever since. The father comes in the morning with straw to adu to the nest. "I put bread and water near the mother and she eats when she's hungry. She is very tame." To make certain she is not bothered, Reade has hung a "Do not disturb" sign on the door and keeps the room locked. 1 The room is in a hotel in suburban Venice. Reade said he now occupies the adjoining room himself. Will he claim the egg, which should hatch 14 days after it was laid, as his own? "That depends on whether city treasury helps me or now," he said. At City Hall, a secretary for the mayor said the reply to Reade commands his consideration for the pigeons, but states that the mayor does not feel the city is responsible for the birds moving in on him. fe/ep/ione /iin SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE CO.
