DALE NELSON Associated Press Writer ' WASHINGTON-(AP) — If George Shultz is confirmed by the Senate to succeed Alexander Haig, he will be the first person in this century to serve as both secretary of the Treasury and secretary of state. The.twp positions are regarded as the top-of-the-Iine posts in the president's Cabinet' — the secretary of state because of his key role in foreign relations and the secretary of the Treasury, because of his influence in shaping the domestic economy. -. .Shultz headed the Treasury Department 1972 to 1974 during the Nixon administration. President Reagan nominated him for secretary of state after Haig resigned in a policy dispute. , The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is opening confirmation hearings today 'and is expected to recommend Senate approval of the nomination. The only previous person to hold both of the top Cabinet positions was Walter Q, Gresham of Illinois, who was named secretary of the Treasury by President Chester Arthur in 1884 and secretary of state by President Grover Cleveland in 1893. Shultz, who served as secretary of , labor before going to the Treasury, would also be the second person ever to hold three or more Cabinet positions. The first was Elliot L. Richard* son, who held four. Richardson served as secretary of health, education and welfare, secretary of defense and attorney general in Rich- ard M. Nixon's administration. He was named secretary of commerce in 1975 by President Ford. Shultz is Jhe second former Nixon Cabinet officer to be-named to a Cabinet post by Reagan. Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger was secretary of health, education and welfare from 1973 to 1974. If there is one thing John Melcher and Lloyd Bentsen agree about, it's horsemeat. • In fact, the two Democratic senators agree so well that they used the same words to express their views in letters to Secretary of the Navy John Lehman. The letters were prompted by news that the Navy was selling fro- zen horse steaks and patties in three commissaries in New England. Melcher, of Montana, chimed in first, releasing the text of a letter to Lehman saying he was "extremely disappointed" that the Navy would do such a thing. Then Bentsen, of Texas, issued a press release quoting from his own letter to Lehman. He also said he was "extremely disappointed." In fact, all of the quotations in his news release were identical with passages in Melcher's letter. A reporter who noted that the copy of Melcher's letter had only one signature telephoned the senators' offices. Jim Giltmer, a legislative assistant to Melcher, said, "That's our let- ter. I don't mind a little larceny around here, but he could at least do a rewrite." JackfreVpre, Bentsen's press secretary, first said, "Well, you've got me. I don't know how that happened." After talking with, other Bentsen aides, he said they had discussed the letter with Melcher's aides before drafting it. "They are two letters with an awful lot;of similarities in the word- ing," DeVore admitted. However they came to be drafted, the le.tters did the trick. The Navy announced it is discontinuing the horsemeat sales.
