The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has refused, at least temporarily, to approve six of President Reagan's nominees for vacant ambassadorships, thereby requiring that all six be re-nominated after Jan. 1 and begin anew the process of winning Senate confirmation. Congressional sources attributed the delays to a variety of reasons, adding that committee members asked for more information about the nominees. Of seven nominations considered by the panel last Thursday, only that of Henry A. Grunwald, retiring editor-in-chief of Time Inc., to be ambassador to Austria was approved and forwarded for a Senate vote.
