    • Richmond, Va., Nov. 30 (AP)
      A public hearing on the Gray report was thrown into a farcical uproar tonight when an Arlington man indulged in something of a personal filibuster. Robert CULBERT at first brought down the house with laughter with his dead-pan, George Gobel-type humor. But after a while, he nearly brought down the house on himself. Culbert insisted on giving in minute detail his personal history and gave a running commentary on his childhood, schooling, marriage and career in the Air Force. But as he spoke on a few cat-calls came from the audience. However, State Sen. Charles Moses of Appomattox was indulgent with Culbert and he was allowed to continue with a time limit put on his remarks. He later told a reporter he had taken so much time in speaking because he wanted to see the hearing extended until Thursday morning to permit a member of the Arlington board to speak. [29]
