Richard Egan thinks so. He is one of Hollywood's greatest runners in the game of matrimony. How come he remains one of the town's most eligible bachelors? Women Are Like That "Because I have a great fear (A losing my independence," he replied. "I like the life I \eM, and 1 have no desire to let a woman change me into her way of Uving. "I've seen it happen time and lime again. A guy gets married and suddenly he finds himself doing the things his wife wants to do. Oh, it's subtle, all right, but it's there. "Women work in'devious ways. They lure their husbands into the kitchen and start them cooking , and doing the dishes. They even get the poor guys to do housework. AH this contributes to depriving a man of his masculinity." Says Films Guilty Movies are contributing to this theft of masculinity, he added, citing his own experience. In "The Revolt of Mamie Stover," he played a writer who fell in love with Mamie, who was bestowing her favors on a large segment of the American Fleet and Army. When he returned from the war and discovered this, he told her gently that they couldn't j get married. ' "If anything, he should have knocked her silly," Egan commented. RICHARD EGAN · . . likes what he's j*o when Dana Wynter told him she didn't think they could make a go of it. And in "Violent Saturday," he stood by while his wife capered with other men.

He indicated he was happy to be playing a two-fisted character again as the labor racket-busting attorney in "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue " Getting back to matrimony, he remarked that he fears losing his ability to achieve solitude now and then. ' "A man has to be alone part of the time," he said. "You have to stop and evaluate things, to get a spiritual re-charging. I'm not sure that women understand this." Don't get the idea he is anti- female. He enjoys feminine com pany and figures he'll take the orange-blossom route some day Some Day, Yes "When I see college friends of mine who are married and have four and five kids, I realize they are more fulfilled than I am," he reflected. "I'd hate to die and have people say of me only that I lived well and bought a new car every year. "But when I do marry, I'll .believe in the vows.

I asked Jerry Lewis for a post- "The only solution was to tell mortem on his NBC show of two Edie Gorme em-camera that we weeks ago and he obliged. Jerry told me he finished the show at 7 p.m. Hollywood time and headed for his Pacific Palisades home. With his family, he watched the show when it came on for the Western re-telecast at 9. His reaction? Came Oft Well * "The show came off amazingly well, considering how I had to cut "Maybe it came from blowing too young and too loud," he said dejectedly in his ward at the hospital yesterday. "I think I've played my last trumpet. I'm too weak to blow any more. I don't feel good all." _Collins' career stretched from the gin mills of New Orleans' fabled Storyville, to Chicago and on to the Paris Opera House where he collapsed from his ail ment while playing there in Jan nary 1955. "My first ^professional job was in 1916,". he recalled. "It began when Louis Armstrong and l! stepped out to lead the Mardi Jras parade." In World War I, the Navy cracked down on night clubs in New Orleans where American jazz was born. Collins and other famous jazz musicians drifted northward after the closures. In Chicago, lie played with such remembered jazz bands as the Jelly Roll Morton Red Hot Peppers and the Jones and Collins Astoria Hot Eight. Armstrong's Sub His first job in Chicago was in the King Oliver Band as a replacement for Louis Armstrong who had moved on to start his own group. Collins, who sa^d he is suffer r ing from "three or four ailments" in addition to the lung condition, is bewildered by the prospect that his musical career is finished. Asked what he plans to do when 'ie leaves the hospital, the grey- haired Collins shook his head and sighed: COLLEGE QUEEN -- Beverly Montgomery (C),-18, sophomore at Rice Institute in Houston with a 3522-34, figure, sits on the throne after she was chosen 'Miss National College Queen' yesterday at Asbury Park, N.

Hagerty, who spends a lot of his time answering questions, last night turned the tables. He asked a few. The vehicle was CBS-TV's "What's My Line" program. Hagerty appeared as a panelist along wjth Dorothy Kilgallen, Arlene Francis and her husband, Martin Gable. Their chore was to determine the occupation of three Irishmen, Muldoon, McCarthy and McDonough. Hagerty, also an Irishman, helped fellow panelists ask questions that eventually revealed the trio from Archibald, Ohio, to be manufacturers of Chinese food. A program, spokesman said Hagerty "performed notably" in his seldom-used role of asking; questions. "I don't know\ All I know is Fred Henderson will request that indictments be returned against two men now in custody and two others being sought. ·· One of the men being hunted, Jbkis'ch said, is 44-year-old Louis Gerald Spivak, who was employed by Melchior as a butler about 10 years ago. The lieutenant said the other wanted man is Richard McFall, 3S, an ex-convict. Police last Friday announces they had arrested two men and recovered all but $11,100 worth of the loot. Robert Morgan, 39, and .Alfred J. Pope, 28, both of Los Angeles, were booked then on suspicion of robbery. : The robbery was committed last Tuesday.

I knew somethin had to skip her second song. Then I had to cut some things out of the Sammy Davis Jr. act." Ended Up Even Somehow the show ended up even. After watching it, Jerry collapsed in bed and his wife Patti brought him. dinner. "For two whole days I didn'f get up," he said. "I'm completely beat after a show. For three nights before the. show I got virtually no sleep. I work around the clock and have in mind 250 camera positions, so I know where the camera is at all times." · Every Letter Examined After his extended rest, he studied the reviews and the mail. Every letter from fans is examined and the consensus is weighed. The fan reaction told Jerry what he had already suspected: that the hit of the show was the "Sonny Boy" routine with son Gary and father Danny. On the Thursday following the show, Jerry held a meeting with the production personnel. The kinescope was run and every feature was analyzed, often with the footage stopped and rerun. The purpose of the session was to iron out technical flaws for the next show. - TASTY -- 'Miss Arkansas Drumstick,' Iwana Lou Musteen of Rogers, Ark., will be hostess at a drumstick breakfast for the National Jaycees, meeting now in Milwaukee, Wis.
