H. 22 PAGES TEN CENTS Ha By BARRY SCHWE1D WASHINGTON (AP) Judge Clement F. Haynsworth today denied reports by congressional sources that lie had sought to have his nomination to the Su- preme Court withdrawn. "I did not think about such a _ Haynsworlh told a re- porler who asked whether had asked President Nixon to Call back the appointment. "I 'don't know where you all got tuch a thing. Somebody else, dreamed the thing up." Denies Trying To Halt Appointment When then asked whether .he anticipated asking that the nom- ination be withdrawn, Hayns- worlh replied: "I have not and I don't." Remain Firm Despite Haynsworth's denial, and one from the White House, Ihe congressional sources who disclosed the original reports to the Associated Press Thursday remained firm today. The sources said Ihe While House had concluded alter an informal headcount that at least 44 of the 104 senators were pre- pared to vote against confirma- tion ol the 54-year-old U.S. ap- peals court judge. One midwestern senator was reported to hare told his staff hours before the reports were published Thursday that Hayns- worth was asking that his name be withdrawn and that a stale- pent from the White House was imminent. But afterward and following a .talk with John N. Mitchell, White House Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said the latest information "in-, dicates that this report is abso- lutely untrue." Two of Haynsworth's strong- v est backers in the Senate took a similar tack. Sen. Ernest F. Hoi- lings, D-S.C., the initial sponsor .of the nomination, called the withdrwa! report ridiculous. And Sen. James 0. Eastland, D-Miss, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said after talking with Hayns- worlh: "The man's had no idea of coming down. He has had no idea of doing such a thing. He's never had such an idea." Haynsworth had called at the Justice Department. to confer with Mitchell earlier in the day. A department spokesman said there would be no comment on the conversation. Still, the congressional sources said Haynsworth had been seeking withdrawal of his nomination to succeed Abe For-. tas on the high 'court. The nomination- is in the hands of the Judiciary Commit- tee, which completed seven days of hearings last Friday. Further action in the committee has been delayed until next Wednesday at the earliest. Withdrawal of the nomination would spare several Republican senators a painful dilemma. If they had to cast a vote on the Senate floor and it was for Hajtisworth they could chance resenlment among labor, liberal and Negro groups that oppose the nomination.
