McCarthy (R-Wis.). Brig. Geri. Ralph W. Zwicker, who three senators have charged was "abused" by McCarthy, was ready to testify as the committee met in a Saturday session aimed at driving as close as possible to a windup of the public hearings. Retried Maj. Gen. Kirkc B. Lawton, who McCarthy has contended was "broken" as commander of Ft. Monmouth, N. J.. for cooperating with the Wisconsin senator's investigations subcommittee, also was in line to testify possibly to counter rome of Zwicker's'state- ments. McCarthy was still, undergoing cross-examination when the com- mitte recessed yesterday and ii was not clear whether he would be recalled at the outset today, or whether he would give way to the other witneses. Guy do Furia, assistant connse' to the special committe loking into censure charges against McCarthy, said in an interview he was only a fifth of the way through his cross-examination of , the Wisconsin Republican. Sen. Edwin C. Johnson (D-Colo), committe vice chairman, sajid Zwicker and Lawton may not get on the stand until Monday, but Edward Bennett Williams, McCarthy's lawyei, contended the hearings could be ended today if the committewoul d sit long enough.

SIGN OF AFFECTION? (N. O. Times-Picayune) And now comes a glibly ingenious explanation designed to take the stigma off snoring by endowing" it \vjjyi. chivalrous overtones. A British physician, reassuring the ladies that snoring on the part of their soulmates may be merely a sign of affection, opined as follows: "Snoring may be based on race memory. Atavistically, the male rndde the noises at night to keep marauders from the den." "Thus," a Glasgow, Scotland dispatch, quotes him, "a wife kept awake by assorted .grunts, groans, wMstles and snorts from her ever- stigations has been summoned by the special group. He said in Chicago yesterday he would be glad to appear. Cohn said he is due to report Sunday -to Rosier Air Force Base, Biloxi, Miss., for two weeks of training., He is a first lieutentnat in the New York National Guard.

'.''.•< , .Second; DiscuissiOri was' the big point of busjrie5.$?ipr the' mee.tijjg "''"" hi the loving spouse, might be encouraged tp,regard snoring as a sign of deep affection." Curbing our lively skepticism that such Runyonesque dialogue emerged from a learned British physician in Glasgow, we have this question: How does he know that the snoring is not merely some atavistic, subconscious rebellion against the marital state? Who can sag the spouse is not expressing stfDtle disapproval of his everloving (to quote the medico), or giving the nocturnal raspberry to her relatives? With all due respect to the erudition of the physician, we fear he is leaping to conclusions. The throwback spouse might be voicing his phonetical opinion on any number of subjects. That is, il snoring is to be classed as a form j"- OJU expression.

By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK -VD — Sidewalk scrawlings of a Pavement Plato: One of the most commonly used observations In the English language is the saying, "Money isn't everything." But, oddly, I have very rarely heard a rich man make this remark, and I can't recall ever having heard a rich woman say it. Wpmcn generally have a greater respect for the power of money than men do,. probably because for centuries they had a harder time getting hold of any. There are millions of husbands who, as a matter of principle, would never think of going through their wives' purses or handbags But if any married woman told me that never in her lifetime had she secretly searched the pockets of her husband's trousers. I would put her down as a brazen liar. Nor do I believe there ever lived n mother who didn't.'at one time or another, explore tho pockets ol her son's clothing. Men's pockets are an irresistible challenge to a womari's curiosity. Yet few feminine idiosyncrasies exasperate a man more than this one.
