* Winston Burdett,Winston Burdett, a veteran CBS foreign correspondent 79, who covered the Nazi invasion of Norway, died Wednesday at a Rome hospital after a long illness. He joined CBS as a free-lancer in 1940 and was considered one of the giants of the Golden Age of radio reporting. "He and . . . Edward R. Murrow, had the two best voices ever to grace the airwaves," CBS newscaster Dan Rather said. Mr. Burdett turned his experiences in Egypt into a book, "Encounters of the Middle East." He also was a scholar of Italian art and literature. When he died, he was writing a book on 19th-century author Alessandro Manzoni.
