(AP Photo- fax) Supporters of Haynsworth Seeking Delay WASHINGTON CAP) Sena- tors working for confirmation of Judge Clement F. Haynsworth Jr. to the Supreme Court are hoping to delay the showdown vote, possibly until next week. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield has said he would like to hold the vote Thursday. But Sen. Roman L. Hruska, floor manager of the nomination, suggested Monday the showdown be put off be- cause many senators plan to be away Thursday. The Nebraska Republican told reporters the Hayns- worth nomination might be set aside temporarily while the Sen- ate takes up a House-passed bill to provide for a lottery draft. While Hruska opposed Mans- field's plan for a vote at 1 p.m. the Republican sena- tor did not rule out the possibili- ty of a vote on Friday. Haynsworth supporters, some of whom indicate time is work- ing on their side, picked up two votes Monday to run the total to 39 in favor of the nomination, 40 opposing confirmation and 21 still publicly uncommitted on the three-month-old appoint- ment. Sens. William B. Spong Jr., D-Va., and Winston L. Prouty, R-Vt., both previously uncom- mitted, announced Monday they will vole for confirmation. Spong told the Senate ques- tions raised about Haynsworth's ethics because of his sitting in cases involving companies in which he had a financial inter- est had cot been substantiated. Prouty said in a statement "the blizzard of accusations against Judge Haynsworth melts quickly under close scru- tiny." Hruska and other supporters of the nomination said during Monday's debate that they did not think Haynsworth's confir- mation by a close vole would have an adverse impact on pub- lic confidence in ihe court. However, Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., a leader of the opposi- tion, said Haynsworth's confir- mation by a narrow margin would be bad for the court. A new appeal fa reject Hayns- worth's nomination was made to all senators in a letter from Roy Wilkins, chairman of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. Joseph Kennedy Succumbs at 81 HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP) Joseph Patrick Kennedy, pa- triarch of an ill-starred Ameri- can political dynasty, died to- day, losing an eight-year strug- gle for life.

A financier and one of the na- tion's weallhicst men, Kennedy had been parlialy paralyzed since suffering a stroke in Palm Beach, Fla., on Dec. 19, 1961. The former ambassador had suffered setbacks from lime to time since then, and had been growing progressively weaker since sustaining a mild heart at- tack Saturday.

K) Forces Claim 273 Reds Dead SAIGON OH South Viet- namese forces today claimed 273 North Vietnamese killed in two battles in the Bu Prang-Due Lap area of the central high- lands. U.S. artillery and planes did most of the killing. The heaviest fighting was two miles east of Bu Prang, where 243 enemy were reported killed. Informants said South Viet- namese casualties in the day- long battle Monday were only 11 wounded because each time the government troops met stiff re- sistance, they pulled back and called on American aircraft and artillery. The government claim of 243 North Vietnamese killed was somewhat suspect. A search aft- er the battle turned up only six weapons and aerial observers counted some of the enemy dead. In the other battle, five miles south of Due Lap, 30 North Viet- namese were killed while South Vietnamese casualties were sev- en killed and 11 wounded. Government forces sweeping the battlefield at Bu Prang re- ported finding some bodies of North Vietnamese soldiers cr to keep them from retreating er to keep them fro rare treating under the onslaught of Ameri- can firepower. There have been similar reports in the past. The fighting was touched off when a battalion of 400 South Vietnamese infantrymen on a sweep outside the camp's per- imeter came under fire from a woodline. The government soldiers with- drew after a heavy exchange of rifle and machine-gun fire, and more than 20 U.S. K4 and FIDO fighter-bombers raked the North Vietnamese troops with bombs, napalm and rockets less than a mile east of the camp perimeter. Some of the North Vietnamese force, estimated at 800 men, were caught in the open. ALAX L. BEAN Rehearsed Monnwalk Everyone, Everything 'Ship-Shape' SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) _ Circling the moon in perfect orbit, Apollo 12's explorers inspected their landing craft today and declared it "shipshape" for a daring bullseye landing on the craggy surface early Wednesday. Charles Conrad Jr. and Alan L, Bean slipped through a connecting tunnel into the fragile lander they call Intrepid, leaving Richard F. Gordon Jr. alone in the command ship Yankee Clipper After an 80-minute check, Bean reported- We've checked out all the things we're supposed to and they're1 all shipshape. We're ready to go Conrad and Bean hope to set Intrepid down precisely in a 400-foot-wide circle in the Ocean of Storms on the western side of the moon's visible face at CST tonight. Their goal is the- first detailed scientific exploration of the lunar sur- face. Conrad and Bean inspected the landing craft six hours after Apollo 12 swept into lunar orbit which prompted outbursts ot awe and enthusiasm from all three as IheV gazed at the wild and wondrous landscape below. Bean shouted Monday night. "Boy It s beautiful down there. Look at that crater" Through color television, the astronauts shared their magnificent view with tfarlhlings a quarter- million-mites away. The 30-minute telecast followed the course ot Apollo 12 as it moved across a narrow band moving from east to west. Large and small craters! rugged mountains and flat plains were visible as the camera panned across the desolate landscape. "Even in earth orbit at night or in the daytime, the sky was never as black as it is Conrad reported. "This is the blackest biack I ever saw."

ROSENTHAL SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) Once more a white boot will crunch into the soil of the no longer-untrodden moon and television will be there, live and in color. It won't be like the first lime, of course, yet the moonwalks of Charles Conrad Jr., and Alan L. Bean Wed- nesday will be unique and excit- ing television at one of Ihe unprimest times of alt: 5 a.m. CST. All three television networks plan to broadcast until after the lunar land- er touches down safely at p.m. NBC says it will slay on all night. ABC will open its moonwalk cover- age at 4 a.m. when the astronauts are making final preparations for their climb down the spacecraft ladder. CBS will begin its telecast at a.m. The first moonwalk of Ihe Apollo 12 mission will last until abaut a.m. The second starts at p.m. CST Thursday and also should last hoars. In July, when NVil A. Armstrong and Fxlwin E. Aldrin Jr., made their histor- ic Apollo 11 walk, the showing was in black and white and Ihe system pro- duced images thai had the jerky motions of early .day movies. The Intrepid, as the Apollo 12 lunar lander is called, carries a color camera in a storage compartment near its base. Conrad will pull a handle as he de- scends to Ihe moon's surface so the camera calches his climb down the lad- der. As the spaceship neared Ihe moon Monday, (he astronauts abandoned an attempt to televise the approach be- cause (he sun angle blinded their dirt- streaked windows. But the second sched- uled telecast, after the ship went into lunar orbit, was extremely successful. "This white or gray-white moon, it contrasts very starkly with the black sky, just like everyone's said Bean. "The black is about as black ss you've ever seen in your life. It doesn't have any hues or anything to it. Its just solid, straight, dull black am! then the moon is just sort of very light concrcle color."
