Nixon moves into 15-room suite


NEW YORK (UPI)-Richard Nixon
moves into his new 15-room office suite
in lower Manhattan next week and
while the rent runs $66,000 a year, that
is cheap compared to the more
fashionable locations the former
president apparently had in mind.
Warren Gardner, spokesman for the
New York regional office of the General
Services Administration, said that
aside from $66,532 in annual rent for the

new offices, the government has paid
$56,871 to furnish the Nixon suite so far.
NIXON SETTLED on 4,800 square
feet of space on the 13th floor at 26
Federal Plaza, which is in an area bet-

area is considered chic.
Nixon recently bought a house with
his own money on the upper East Side
at a cost of just under $1 million, but the
federal government pays for office
space for former presidents under a
law passed in 1958.
"IT WILL BE his private office for
his personal affairs," Gardner said.
His offices are furnished with plush
beige carpeting, costing $4,560 for the

coverings cost $1,986 and dark brown
drapes, $3,300.
Nixon also gets a presidential pension
of about $66,000 a year, plus pensions
for other public offices he has held.

former chief executive, the teacher had
to admit the pupil had scooped the city
media stars and snagged the first in-

The assignment didn't start at the
