Senat. on , 26 to 9 roll Having escaped being held in con tempt of court, Lt Col Robert M Hamilton, 1 58, veteran of 34 years Army service, saw his wife's efforts to sue him for separate support frustrated in Suffolk Probate Court yesterday. The colonel, attached to the South Boston Army Base after 37 months' overseas duty and now residing at 420 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, was being sued by his wife, Mrs. An- tonia M. Hamilton, 48, of Pocasset, Cape Cod. They were married in 1940 and separated on Sept. 21, 1947, when the colonel, Mrs. Hamilton claimed "put on his hat and coat, kissed me goodby and left." It was the second marriage for each. . Following a day of bitter testimony before Judge Robert G. Wilson Jr., Atty. John J. O'Neill, coun sel for Col Hamilton, in a surprise move questioned the jurisdiction of the court to rule on tne case. Col Hamilton, he claimed, had an official Army mailing address at Ft. jsanKs, winthrop, maintains an apartment in Cambridge, formerly lived at Pocasset, votes from Manchester, Conn. up," the jurist ' ruled, "it will be contempt of court.". . . The colonel then wrote his answers, which were not of the nature attorney Vincent Brogna, rep resenting Mrs. Hamilton, had anticipated. To the query on the identity of the "woman's picture in your bed room beside your bed," Col Hamilton noted, "It is that of my daughter by a former marriage. My interest in her is paternal." And other women's pictures in his living room, the colonel stated, be long to various Army officers who (shared his Cambridge apartment during the past two years. Rebutting Col Hamilton s written answer, however. Mrs. Alice M. Hu- ber of Wilton, N. H., sister of the officer, testified the bedroom photo was "that of a strange woman. It was not the colonel's daughter. I have no idea whose it was," she said. had and RENSSELAER, N. Y.. Feb. 28 (UT) Police in eight states tonight searched for a distraught mother of three children who vanished from her home apparently because she feared she suffered from cancer. Sherill Overlander, a truck driver and war veteran, said his wife's physician told him today she did not have cancer. He said he also learned she did not call for the doctor's report, as she was. supposed to, last Friday when she disappeard. Agreed Some Cause for Doubt Judge Wilson agreed there was cause for doubt on jurisdiction and requested bolh attorneys to file briefs. Meanwhile, the judge said he would look up the covering law; Previously, Col Hamilton had been threatened with contempt -for failure to comply with six interrog atories asked by his wife in the fil ing of her petition. unless those questions are an swered by the time your case comes Got $12,950 ln Allotments Mrs. Hamilton testified she had re ceived $12,950 in allotments during her husband's overseas stretch, gained $1950 in war bonds which she cashed, and had sold their auto for $900 and kept the proceeds. She denied his contention that he had paid $30"0 for private school tuition for her daughter by her first marriage.
