CONGRESSIONAL RECORD - SENATE
NOMINATION OF STEWART LEE UDALL TO BE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR
Mr. MUSKIE. Mr. President, it gives me great pleasure to rise in support of President Kennedy's nomination of the Honorable Stewart L. Udall, of Arizona, to be Secretary of the Interior.
Mr. Udall comes to this post as one eminently qualified to be responsible for the conservation of our Nation's natural resources. As a Member of the House of Representatives he has distinguished himself as a vigorous and able Representative of his State, always balancing his own views against the needs of the entire country.
As a Senator from a State with abundant forest, water, and land resources, possessing the magnificent Acadia National Park and the very fine White Mountain National Forest, I am conscious of the need for an intelligent program of conservation if we are to realize the full potential of our natural gifts. I am confident that in Mr. Udall we will find an able and active friend.
