McCarthy s wife, Jean, watched most of the proceedings from a front row of the gallery among others, urged that all members of the committee make 4 any action on it to the Senate's discretion. McCarthy broke in with a series of questions which at times led to sharp exchanges between the . two as they stood side by side. Senator Butler spoke first for the opponents of the censure resolution. He said he would not endorse everything McCarthy has done, but he cautioned fellow senators to be careful on two points: 1. To recognize that senators are subject to much abuse when they investigate subversion and "should be excused if they lose some of their usual patience." Butler said the present wording of the committee's report on the Zwicker incident give's subver-gives "real cause to celebrate." 2. To avoid any such vote of censure as would unduly restrict the acts of other senators in the future. He asked the Senate if it really was ready to say "that senators may not impugn the motives of fellow senators, in the privacy of their own homes, in the company of a group of friends, in our cloakrooms and in the heat of a political campaign." The Klfht To Impugn Butler joined McCarthy in assailing that part of the Watkins Committee report which holds one senator has no right to impugn the motives or character of another. A part of one of the censure charges is that McCarthj violated his principles when he described Senator Hendrickson (R-NJ) as a 'living miracle . . , without either brains or guts." .

Before packed galleries, and with lone lines of would-be spectators awaiting admittance, the 67-year-old Watkins: "We are not here to argue that our interpretations must be followed." Watkins drew a round of laughter and applause from the gallery at one point, and Senator Bush (R-Conn) presiding at the moment warned against any further demonstrations.
