What was the first game system that canonically gave Gnomes the ability to talk to burrowing animals? I know D&D 3.5 had it, but was there something earlier?

Player Character Gnomes can speak with "any burrowing mammal (such as moles, badgers, ground squirrels, etc)" in first edition AD&D (PHB pg 16). The blue book basic D&D (1974-78) does not have Gnomes as PCs, but does have Gnomes in the monster list, and makes no mention of them being able to speak wtih animals.
