If he refuses he must have a good reason—for example that his answer, might incriminate him-^or he faces jail for contempt of Con- Mrs. Frank Gilbert Hostess to 37 Club Mrs, Frank Gilbert was hostess to members of the 37 Contract Club at her home on Tuesday.

This is neither a cross-examination, of them nor of some other witness who has said damaging things about him. Now McCarthy is in the position of having to appear before hifs/'own subcommittee to answer its questions about his fight with the Army, And McCarthy insists he must be allowed to cross-examine witnesses against him. It isn't final that he'll be miUed to-do it. That will he decided" when his subcommittee lays down its rules for If McCarthy is the probe- refused cross examining rights, he may appeal to the full Senate. McCarthy chairman of the sub' committee , already has stepped aside for this investigation, letting Sen. Mundt (R-SD) act as chair- mqn. And McCarthy has said he won't vote. TWs voting may be important since all the witnesses will appear under oath and if the committee decides anyone recommend the is lying it can Justice Department take ovpv the case for pros* edition. Since McCarthy is still a mom* her of thp subcommittee, he would have the right to sit behind the }p»g desk,' with the other members when tho hearing starts.

Last night,he. was right on top agaip. The'Hoboken slugger fought his way out of - career'd'pld'rum s by self. He campaigned hard for the Maggio role in "From Here lo •Eternity" and finally convinced the producers he could do. it. A self- styled "song and dance man," he won the supporting actor Oscar without singing a note or dancing a step,. . - Filmland's recognition of his fent was expressed by the cheer that went up from the iPontages audience when his name was announced. It was 'the 'biggest applause of the evening. Sinatra came to the- affair with his chil dren by his first wife—Nancy and Frank Jr. His-present wife, Ava Gardner, who was .also -nominated for an Oscar, is finishing a film in Rome. -••'.. Drawbacks; The -Pantages onlookers, some of whom had paid $12 a seat were disgruntled because they could scarcely hear what was said. Emcee Donald O'Conner was also disturbed because his gags drew few laughs The public address system was too low. Thereweu e also grumbles about too many commercials. The academy can't seem to escape the tedium of too many technical and minor awards. Assets: The use of film clips and costume models added much needed eye appeal to the program. The Donald O'Connor-Mitzi Gaynor duet was zingy. Also appreciated were the glamor dolls who hand out awards.
