Well, then I was slightly confused.  You don't need to do it in
AppleScript.  Do you want to have the default sort order the same for every
folder?  You can use this droplet:

  #!perl -w
  use File::Find;
  use Mac::Files;
  find(sub {
    my $dir = $File::Find::name;
    return unless -d $dir;
    my $catinfo = FSpGetCatInfo($dir) or die "$dir: $^E";
    my $dinfo   = $catinfo->ioDrUsrWds or die "$dir: $^E";
    FSpSetCatInfo($dir, $catinfo) or die $^E;
  }, @ARGV);

In "frView(1)" put an integer corresponding to the view you want.  I don't
know what numbers correspond to what views.  1 is icon, I think 2 is name.
You can figure it out by trial and error (I perused IM online and couldn't
find it).
