HE HAS BEEN TIPPED AS A LIKELY CANDIDATE FOR THE AMBASSADORSHIP IN WASHINGTON, SHOULD THE PRESENT INCUMBENT, DR WILHELM CREWE, BE REPLACED.

THE AMBASSADOR SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN IN THE CENTRE OF THE TROUBLE WHICH RESULTED IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT DEALING WITH BONN DIRECT THROUGH THE US EMBASSY THERE RATHER THAN THROUGH DR CREWE IN WASHINGTON.

AFTER WORLD WAS TWO HE HELD A REGIONAL MINISTERIAL POST, WAS CONSUL- GENERAL IN CHICAGO FOR FIVE YEARS, AMBASSADOR TO SPAIN FOR TWO, AND BECAME A DEPUTY STATE SECRETARY IN THE BONN FOREIGN MINISTRY BEFORE GOING TO THE UNITED NATIONS IN 1960.
