Senate confirms Shultz
as secretary of state

Shultz, a softspoken former professor
and corporatin chief who seeks wider
ties with the Arab nations and a
"beneficial" relationship with the
Soviet Union, was confirmed 97-0 by the
Senate late yesterday as secretaryof
President Reagan saluted the Senate
for embracing his nominee "so
decisively," and said that the "swift ac-
tion augers well for continued
cooperation between the Congress and
executive brance and for strong leader-
ship at the State Department."
REAGAN, IN a written statement,
also praised Shultz for his "impressive
performance before the Senate Foreign.
Relatins Committee," and said "His ar-
ticulate and convincing presentation
sent a strong signal to friend and foe
alike - America is blessed with a man of
exceptional character and
qualifications for this vital position."
"I very much look forward tohave
George with us as a member of the
team," Reagan said of Shultz, who
replaces Alexander Haig.
The 97-0 vote was hardly a surprise.
Shultz, 61, who already has served ahit-
ch in government as secretary of labor,
budget director and secretary of the
treasury during the Nixon ad-
ministration effectively locked up is

unanimous endorsement of the commit-
tee a day earlier.
Sesn. Frank Murkowski, &R-Alaska),
David Pryor, (D-Ark.), and Lowell

... unanimously approved
Weicker, (R-Conn.), did not vote on the
final tally.
IN TWO DAYS of questioning before
that panel, Shultz had pledged "wide,
and ever-strengthening ties with the
Arabs" and said he would pursue "as
constructive and beneficial relatinship
as possible" with the Soviet Union.
The Senate vote followed a mild
debate which focused on Shultz' con-
nectin with the Bechtel Group Inc., a
worldwide engineering firm with large
contracts in the Arab world.

Children writefor peace
HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN throughout America are writing Bubbie
and Zadie to tell the elderly Yiddish couple who live near the North
Pole about their dreams for world peace. And their letters are being forwar-
ded to the secretary general of the United Nations in New York by Daniel
Bloom, a children's author who lives in Nome, Alaska. Bloom created the
couple, whose names mean "grandfather" and "grandmother" in Yiddish.
Bloom also started Project Shalom, the Yiddish greeting word meaning
peace, to give children in America a chance to speak out against war and for
peace. "I think the slogan for 1982 should be: let's make peace, not war,"
wrote 10-year-old Toby Srebnik of Sunrise, Fla. "I hope everyone tries to
make peace.ae "
Return of the chicken
D ON JEWETT'S POULTRY farm in Duanesburg, N.Y., is once again an
unofficial area landmark, thanks to his 8-foot chicken. Police suspect
the great chicken heist was the brainchild of fraternity pranksters at Har-
twick College, a small liberal arts college about 80 miles from this rural
Schenectady County town. Campus police said the chicken was discovered
hanging from the roof of the campus science building, 25 feet in the air. The
foxy thieves, who apparently transported the fiberglass bird strapped to the
top of a station wagon, have managed to elude police. Jewett said he's just
glad to have the bird back and after a few repairs will return it to a concrete
roadway post where it has roosted for the last 18 years. r .
