Your full name will be used unless otherwise requested. Volume of mail received makes personal replies impossible. Q. The White House blamed President Nixon's tax troubles not on President Nixon but on his team of tax preparers. Has Nixon used the same team of Frank DeMarco, the Los Angeles lawyer, and Arthur Blech, the Los Angeles certified public accountant, for his 7973 return, or has he fired both men?--T.E., Pasadena, Calif: A. Nixon has fired neither DeMarco nor Blech. At this writing accountant Blech is preparing Nixon's 1973 return for which he obtained from the Internal Revenue Service a 60-day filing extension. Frank DeMarco's office is supplying some of the data, and the final return will probably be overseen by Philadelphia lawyer Kenneth Gemmill and Cleveland lawyer H. Chapman Rose, whose son Jonathan, Nixon recently appointed an assistant deputy U.S. attorney general at $36,000 a year. Q. Is Lee Radziwill, Jackie Kennedy's kid sister, going to marry Charlie Revson, 67, the Rev/on cosmetics king?--M. Frank, New York City. A. According to friends, if Lee is asked she will accept She is cozy in the life style millionaire Revson can provide. LEE RADZ1WILL CHARLES REVSON Q. So many families whose members were killed in that DC-10 crash outside Paris are suing McDonnell Douglas--isn't there a danger that the aircraft company can go bankrupt if each of the 346 families is awarded, say $1 million?--P.O., Baltimore. A. Not likely. McDonnell Douglas carries $150 million in insurance. It has assets worth more than $1 billion. Moreover, if juries bring in excessive damage awards, these are subject to review by the courts, which can reduce the amounts. DAVID CEFFEN AND CHBI: SONNY IS OUT OF THE PICTURE Q. Sonny and Cher--did they break up because Cher . talked in her sleep about another man? Who is he? --E.D. f Seattle, Wash. A. According to Sonny, he was in bed with Cher one night when she called him by another man's name. "She tried to laugh it off as a joke," he says. "But I knew it was no joke. She was fantasizing that she was in bed with another guy." The new man in Cher's life is David Geffen, 31, a record producer. Friends of Sonny and Cher say Cher has been wanting to leave Sonny for some time, that she was depressed because she couldn't have another child, that she didn't cotton to Sonny% secretary, that she wanted to be a star in her own right Whatever the reason, the couple have split She wants a divorce. He wants a legal separation. Q. Is there any truth to the rumor that Georgia Lt Cm. Lester Maddox is suffering from sickle-cell anemia, hence his nosebleeds and hospitalizations? --Julia St John, Thomasville, Ga. A. Maddox is not suffering from sickle-cell anemia. Q. How much of a pay cut did Henry Ford II take last year?--Lynn Lockwood, Detroit A. In 1972 Ford was paid $874,567 in salary and bonuses as top executive of the Ford Motor Company. In 1973 he was paid $865,000, a cut of $9567. Q. Can you tell us whats happened, to former Pennsylvania Gov. William Scranton, who ran in 1964 as a liberal Republican Presidential possibility? Is there any chance he will run for President again?-R. Allen, Richland, Wash. A. William Scranton, 56, is chairman of the board of the Northeastern Bank of Scranton, Pa., a city built in large part by his family. He sits, too, on the boards of such corporations as IBM, Sun Oil and Pan American Airways. He has turned down Richard Nixon's offer to make him Secretary of State, U.S. ambassador to any of three countries, and energy czar of the U.S. "simply," Scranton says, "I am not interested in running for office again ... I was never personally ambitious for power. A lot of people in politics think all politicians want to be at the top of the heap. But I really do mean what I say about not running for office again." One of Scranton's major frustrations was his experience as chairman of President Nixon's Commission on Campus Unrest, a commission put together after the shooting of students on the campuses of- Kent State and Jackson State. His report was cavalierly dismissed by Nixon, and it may well be that Scranton then decided he would never again participate in the Nixon Administration. Undoubtedly Scranton will be available for non-elective-positions and assignments in the future. REX HARRISON AND WIFE ELIZABETH Q. Is Rex Harrison twice as old as his wife?--Alma Crawford, New Haven, Conn. . A. Almost Harrison is 66. His current and fifth wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Lord Ogmore and formerly married to actor Richard Harris, is 37. publisher, WARREN L, REYNOLDS THE SUNDAY NEWSPAPER MAGAZINE MAY 26,1974 chairman of the board, ARTHUR H.
