Shultz to face
difficulties in
new cabinet post

WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of
State-designate George Shultz is
coming across on Capitol Hill as a soft-
spoken smoothie, but he faces many of
the same problems his prickly
predecessor did in dealing with
As Shultz made the rounds of Senate
offices preparing for his confirmation
hearing, which begins Tuesday, both
Republicans and Democrats described
him as a low-key, likable man who
should be easy to get along with.
Many of the senators already knew
Shultz from his days as treasury
secretary and secretary of labor in the
Nixon administration. But'even those
who didn't know him seemed taken with
his personality.
FRESHMAN Sen. Christopher Dodd
(D-Conn.), for instance,- praised the
secretary-designate for conceding can-

about Latin America, compared to
other regions of the world.

other areas. If the answer to that
question is "yes"-as it must be if
military aid to the Salvadoran gover-
nment is to continue-Dodd and other
critics are likely to ask how
scrupulously the administration looked
into the matter.
Meanwhile, the administration's ef-
fort to boost foreign aid spending is
foundering in an election year in which
Congress has been asked to cut
politically popular domestic programs.
. In 1981, the lawmakers authorized
$5.9 billion in foreign aid for the fiscal
year that begins Oct. 1. Both the Senate
Foreign Relations and House Foreign
Affairs panels have agreed to add about
