Nixon has narrowed his search r for a new veteran's ad^ rpinistralor ; to' .four' possible nominees, whose names are being circulated among vclon ans groups by White House aides, sources say. One knowledgeable administration official singled out Earll Brian, , a 32-year-old Vietnam veteran and associate of Cali- fornia Gov.' Ronald Reagan, as the current White House favorite. Bul'thc- officials said Brian's chances for nomination could be reduced by opposition from key House and Senate Democrats -- a possibility confirmed by congressipnal sources. A White House spokesman said Nixon hopes to announce soon a successor to Donald Johnson, who resigned amid a Skeleton Believed That Of Vice-Consul Found .HERMOSILLO, Mexico (AP) -- Sonora state police hope to ·stablish the identification today of" a skeleton they believe to be.that .of U.S. Vice-Consul John Patterson, who was kid- naped March 22. , Lt.
