SCHWARTZ III WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon has committed him- self to a showdown vote on his Supreme Court nominee even though he so far lacks a possi- bly essential ingredient to victo- support of his own Senate leaders. Both Republican Leader Hugh Scott and GOP Whip Robert P. Griffin refused to take sides Fri- day as Nixon began to shift the full weight of his prestige into blunting criticism of Judge Clement F. Haynsworth. Scott said be still would vote in the Senate Judiciary Commit- tee to report the nomination to the floor but that he could not predict what the. even do then. Taxing Tax Force Scored by Pitarys The Citizens' Task Force last night came under heavy fire from Thomas J. Pitarys of Na- shua, president of the N.H. La- bor Council, AFL-CIO. He said, "We mast be on our guard against the sales lasers with-their prediction of bank- ruptcy and their happy willing- ness to soak (he'poor." His address highlighted the council's 13th annual constitu- tional convention being held in the Sheraton Wayfarer Motor Inn, Bedford. Tries to Convince He said the Task Force should be called, "Citizens for Forced Tax." He remarked that the group was touring the state "with a road show trying to convince us that what we have been missing years the one we've needed for all these ingredient a golden dream world is a sales tax or an income tax." He commented, "In my opin- ion, the Citizens' Task Force should concentrate its efforts in the elimination of waste ft monies and to recommend a more efficient operation of the state government as well as the municipalities. "We've seen the sales tax go up and away in Maine and at present they are burdened with an income tax. We have the sorry example of Massachusetts to the south. "If the time and effort and money the citizens of the in- come and sales tax force are spending were put to good use, the state might have a fair tax program.

Gov. Walter Peterson and Manchester Mayor John C. Mongan were to address the convention late this morning. Highlighting the dinner pro- gram tonight will be the pre- sentation of the annual Benja- min Rush Toland award. The election of officers will take place tomorrow. Scott even added a note ol faint hostility. He said he agreed with Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield that Hayns- worth may have shown ques- tionable judgment in ruling, as a federal judge, on two cas- es involving companies with which he was financially in- volved. Scott also left it up to another Republican member of the Judi- ciary Committee to release a letter from Nixon that capped a day of steadily increased White House pressure and mounting counteMemands from Demo- crats and Republicans that Nix- on withdraw the nomination. In a letter to Scott, Nixon said there was nothing in .Hayns- wprth's record to 'cast doubt on bis integrity or to fault hu posi- tion oiTcivil or labor is- "In order that there.be no misunderstanding on the part of wrote Nixon, is spending the weekend at Key Biscayne, Fla., "I send this let- ter to confirm that I steadfastly support this nomination and earnestly hope and trust that the Senate Judiciary Committee proceed with dispatch to ap- prove ihe nomination." Copies of the letter were sent to Judiciary Chairman James 0. Eastland, D-Miss., and Ihe committee's l senior GOP mem- ber, Roman L. Hruska of Ne- braska who earlier met with newsmen to defend Haynsworth in a full dress news conference. It was Hruska who; released the Nixon letter late in the day.

Earle G. Wheeler, chair- man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived in Saigon to- day and predicted a new round of fighting will break the current lull in the war. Studies Progress Wheeler, making his second visit to-the war zone in VA months, said he was particular- ly interested in seeing what progress has been made in turn- ing more combat action over to South Vietnamese forces. Commenting on reports by the U.S. Command that the level of action is at its lowest point this year, Wheeler said, "I look for it to pick back up. The same thing has happened in the past. The enemy has his cyclic high pouits and his low points and he is in a low. point now because of allied actions." Wheeler said he expects the Communist command to launch a winter-spring campaign, but he did not predict-any timeta- ble: Other military sources have said they thought the campaign might begin in November. Wheeler was accompanied on the flight from Korea, by the U.S. commander in Viet- nam, Gen. Creighton Abrams.

With the start of the filing period only two days away, the mayor maintains he still is un- decided about seeking re-elec- tion. Sullivan said he awaits agree- ment from his wife, Claire, be- fore he can arrive at a deci- sion. Mrs. Sullivan, he said, has been adamantly opposed to his running for a third term be- cause of the disruption of home life, the long work hours and [he public criticisms associated with the mayor's post. In political circles, however, Emergency Board Will Try To Settle Railroad Dispute By C. YATES McDANIEL WASHINGTON (AP) Ad ministration intervention has postponed for at least 60 days a labor-management showdown that had threatened a nation- wide shutdown of rail service starting today. President Nixon invoked the Railway Labor Act Friday and created an emergency board to determine the facts and recom mend the basis for settlements of a year-long wage dispute be- tween four railroad shopcraft unions and the country's 75 ma- jor carriers. Under the law, Ihe presiden- tial action bars Ihe unions from striking six selected roads and prevents management from car- rying: out a counter threat to halt all rail traffic. Shullz Notes The President based his deci- sion on a finding by Labor Sec- retary George P.

Winpisinger, were pessimistic, predicting the problem would be back where it started after 60 days. He blamed the industry, by its threat of a nationwide shutdown, for forcing the gov- ernment to invoke the Railway Act. The unions involved are the machinists, electrical and sheelmelal workers and the boilermakers. They had aimed their strike against the Santa Fe, Illinois Central, Great Northern, Southern, Chesapeake Ohio-Baltimore i Ohio and the Erie-Lackawanna. Rail shopcraft workers now earn J3.59 an hour. They have demanded increases of 10 per cent per year and other pay benefits. The carriers have of- fered raises of 2 per cent from last Jan. 1 and an additional 3 per cent retroactive to last July 1.

Bonn Chancellorship Assured Brandt Succeeds in10-Year Struggle By PETER REHAK BONN, Germany (AP) WU- ly Brandt's capture of West German chancellorship is the result of a 10-year struggle to make his Social Democratic parly respectable in the eyes of ihe West German public. It also is the sign of decreas- ing tensions with Communist East Germany and of increas- ;ng prosperity in West Ger- many. Brandt, whose election as chancellor was assured Friday night, is closely identified with his party's 1959 reform platform hat gained it rising popularity. The accompanying increase in voter support culminated with Sunday's election results which enabled the party to dominate government for the first time in ,Vest Germany's 20-year histo ry- Brandt, who will be 54 in De cember, also gave the party the jersonality it needed to appeal o the voters after stagnation in the early postwar years. Gains Prestige He gained a lot of personal prestige as mayor of West Ser- in when it was a Cold War flashpoint in the early 60s, while eadong the party in a long uphill struggle to power. There was a setback in 1965 when he was defeated for the chancellorship by Christian Democrat Ludwig Erhard. Brandt said he would never seek the lop government post again.
