There is no "new record" script trigger in current versions of FileMaker.
For setting initial values in fields, as S Chamblee has indicated, you don't need a script, you can use auto-enter field options to set these values in each newly created record.
For more sophisticated manipulation of a new record, you can use FileMaker Advanced to write your own New Record script and set up the layout's custom menu to perform this script instead of the standard New Record menu option--this subsitutes your script for both selections from the Records Menu and also its keyboard shortcut.
Thank you all very much for that
