S, 80 an expressway. “I bought the right - of - way needed for the overpass west of Trent,’* Tittle declared, “and at toe present time I do not have in ’ my possesskMn any deed on the basis of which I could buy any right-of-way.“ (I’nder policies of the Texas Highway I^artmenl. it is neces-iury for the county to provide the r ghl-of-way before the slate will land from the owner, using pre-buiW the highway, using state and ciuct funds.)

CpI. Claude Batchelor said today at his court-martial. Batchelor, 22-year-old Kermit, Tex . youth, is on trial on charges of aiding the enemy while a prisoner of war. His court-martial at Fort Sam Houston here began Aug. 30. In the latter pages of a long statement scheduled to be completed today and read into the court-martial record, the corporal said; ‘T think Uiat most of them stayed because of fear. Very few of them had the intellect to really understand that they were fighting i for peace." I Batchelor was speaking of the’, POVVS at Kaesong prior to the 1 “explainer" talks by United Na-i tions personnel. The statement said that Cpl. Edward Dickenson Cracker’s Neck. Va.. had done that might in some way have been detrimental to my country.” The non-repatriates were forbidden to read letters from home but Batchelor eventually read his secretly in a latrine. He described a letter from his mother as “...very appealing and quite different from what I had expected. She was writing extremely anti-communistic, pleading for me to come home. She did not seem to know much about politics but nevertheless her letter was enough to make me think a great deal. “Before, from previous letters, she always wrote (sic) against war but none of the letters were anti - communistic.

One charge is that McCarthy abused Zwicker. Williams called as his first witness Maj. (Jen. Kirke B. Lawton, former commander of Ft. Monmouth. N.

Calls it “Gagging” Willihins protested that the Army was “gagging” Lawton without justification, but said he would not dem^d that the censure investi-^gations committee order Lawton to testify. Chairman Watkins (R-Utah) said, however, the committee should consider that question on its own. Watkins ordered a recess of the public hearing at 11; 10 a.m. EDT while the six-member committee discussed in closed door meeting whether it should direct that Lawton answer questions. Williams told a renter during the recess that unless Lawton returned to the witness stand McCarthy himself would be the next witness. End This Week? Williams said the investigation could end this week — a view that Sen. Watkins also gave some support to. Before the recess. Sen. Case iR-SD » suggested at one point that the committee call Zwicker to testify, saying that through direct examination of him the committee might be able to develop the testimony that “counsel for Sen. McCarthy wants to develop” from Lawton. Williams commented that he didn’t think Zwicker would be “eager to testify to the facts I hope to develop” through questioning Lawlon. Harding told the cimimittee that he has lived in New York for 60 years and conducts a small sales agency. “I am a salesman,” he saal. Was In Audience Harding then related he was in the audience on the morning of Feb. 18 when the McCarthy Investigations subcommittee was conducting hearings on the case of Maj. Irving Peress, labeled by McCarthy as a “Fifth Amendment Communist,” He related that McCarthy asked Zwicker to stand up and answer several questions. When Zwicker sat down. Harding testified, *T distinctly heard him mutter under his breath: ‘You S.O.B.’ " Harding told the committee Zwicker then turned to two officers silting on his right and said vears old. to return the favor and helo elect GOP congressional candidiate Leroy LaM aster of Perry ton ‘That puls Porter in the same bucket with Ralph Yarlwrough and the CTO,“ Shiver.s replied.
