Is it true that a Republican Congressman from Georgia named Fletcher Thompson wants actress lane Fonda hanged for treason because she made broadcasts over Radio Hanoi aimed at American servicemen?--R.L, Los Angeles, Calif. A. Congressman Thompson wants no such thing. "I'm not waving the flag," he says, "but I am a patriot, and in my opinion jane Fonda is guilty of treason, undeclared war or not. I've sent my evidence of her behavior in Hanoi over to the justice Department, and I've asked justice to investigate. I hope they find the evidence sufficient enough to present it before a federal grand jury and get an indictment and then try her. "Frankly I don't expect that the Internal Security Division of justice will move on it this year, because it's an election year and people might say it was a political trial. But after the election, I hope that Jane Fonda comes to trial, and I will be satisfied with any decision rendered by a jury." Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution states: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court." The penalty for treason, according to the U.S. Code, Title 18, is death or imprisonment for not less than five years, and a fine of not less than $10,000, and the guilty person shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. Q. / understand that David Rockefeller has obtained permission from Chou En- laiforhis Chase Manhattan bank to open a branch in Shanghai. Can you confirm? -- Victor Leventhal, Hempstead, N.Y. A. Not true. The only two foreign banks in China are both British. They are the Chartered and the Hong Kong Shanghai, which have small offices off Shanghai's famous bund or waterfront. Q. Whafs happened to the destroyer Maddox? You'll recall that reports of North Vietnamese torpedo boat attacks on the Maddox are what caused Lyndon Johnson to rush the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution through the Senate in 1964.--Hardy Layne Inglis, Philadelphia, Pa. A. The U.S. government has given the Maddox to the Chinese National government of Taiwan. JOANNA SHIMKUS Q. / have been told that actresses Catherine Deneuve, Vanessa Redgrave, Joanna Shimkus, and Dominique Sanda have all been married to the same man. True? --L.T., Charlotte, N.C. A. No. What they have in common is that each has a child or children born out of wedlock. Catherine Deneuve has children from her out-of-marriage liaisons with Roger Vadim and Marcello Mastroianni. Vanessa Redgrave with Franco Nero, Joanna Shimkus with Sidney Poitier, and Dominique Sanda with Christian Marquand. Q. In my opinion Teddy Kennedy made the most appealing and outstanding speech at the Democratic National Convention. Who wrote it for him?--Anne Owens, Lexington, Mass. A. Milton Gwirtzman, a Kennedy family lawyer. Q. / read that Raquel Welch has been booked into the Las Vegas Hilton for two weeks. Since Raquel can't sing, dance, or act, what will she do?--Peter Olvidez, San lose, Calif. A. Miss Welch is blessed with anatomical endowments which undoubtedly she will display. These, along with some music and patter, should suffice. Talent is no requisite for success in show business. A buildup is, and Miss Welch's buildup is her bust. Q. The Christian Science Monitor says that George McGovern won the Distinguished Flying Cross as a bomber pilot in World War II. I read in the Review of the News that McGovern was relieved of his command and brought before a board of officers who recommended a dishonorable discharge. Which of these reports is true?--R.S. Wood, Manhattan, Kans. A. The Christian Science Monitor is correct. The article in the Review of the News is completely false. Q. Carl Stokes, the Negro ex-Mayor of Cleveland, was charged in Torrance, Calif, on March 26, 7972, with assault on a white airline stewardess. Why was this suppressed by the national media?--J.W. Merchant, Lake Charles, La. A. Carl Stokes visited an airline hostess in Torrance on that date but no charges were preferred-against him. The local district attorney ruled there was no case against Stokes. Q. Is it true that the grave of the late Aly Khan, the playboy once married to Rita Hayworth, has been robbed? Where is Aly buried? Also was he related to Sam Khan, a clothier in Cleveland, Ohio?-R.T., Dayton, Ohio. A. The body of Aly Khan, killed in a Paris auto accident in 1960, lies in a special mausoleum in Damascus, Syria. Aly's grave has not been robbed, nor was he ever related to Sam Khan, the clothier. ALY KHAN AND RITA HAYWORTH Q. /$ there a book about 400 men who rule America on the policymaking level? I*believe the author is Lincoln Barnett?--Frank Bienstock, Baltimore, Md. A. There is an excellent book, Roots of War by Richard J. Barnet, published by Atheneum, which deals with an elite of policymakers who run the Pentagon, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the State Department. Most probably that is the book you have in mind. THE SUNDAY NEWSPAPER MAGAZINE AUGUST 27, 1972 chairman of the board, ARTHUR H. MOTLEY president, DANIEL D.
