Who are the most liberal and the most reactionary members of the U.S. Supreme Court? I would also like to know how one classifies lustice Byron White, and what prompts the crack that jack and Bobby Kennedy are turning over in their graves because of White?--F. K., Denver, Colo. A. The most liberal member of the Supreme Court is probably Justice William O. Douglas, the most reactionary, Justice William Rehnquist. As for Byron Raymond White, he is regarded as "the swing justice," sometimes siding with the holdovers of the Warren Court, Justices Douglas, Marshall, Stewart, and Brennan, and sometimes moving into the conservative camp of Nixon appointees, Burger, Black, mun, Powell and Rehnquist. Some Kennedy adherents believed incorrectly that White would make a consistently liberal justice, hence their crack about the Kennedy brothers. ON WEDDING DAY: CHERYl AND LANCE REVENTLOW Q.

BOB HOPE JACK BENNY Q. Comedians like Bob Hope and lack Benny--are they naturally funny or do they depend upon their writers for humor?--Morton Thompson, Seattle, Wash. A. Hope and Benny onstage would be lost without their writers. Neither is a natural humorist, and neither writes his own material. Over the years Hope has employed more gag writers than any other comic in show business. Hope and Benny by background are not particularly witty, well-read, epigrammatic men. Each, however, has developed a good joke memory, while Hope, of course, owns the most extensive gag file in existence. Q. / have been told Desi Arnaz jr. and Liza Minnelli use each other for publicity purposes and have no intention of-marrying. Is that true?

Who said: "Duty is what one expects from others"?--Suzanne Klein, Philadelphia, Pa. A. Oscar Wilde. Q. Defense Secretary Melvin Laird says U.S. bombers have never targeted any dikes in North Vietnam. How about the foundations near the dikes? Haven't we used laser bombs to weaken the land near the dikes?--Marvin Sumner, Portland, Oreg. A. Secretary Laird said recently, "I state categorically that at no time has the U.S. government targeted any dikes or dams in North Vietnam. Our fliers of course do go after military targets." Laird added that military targets located on dikes and dams will be hit. If such targets are missed, naturally, the dams and/or surrounding terrain will be hit. The use of laser bombs, wherever targeted, minimizes the margin of error. THE SUNDAY NEWSPAPER MAGAZINE Â·-SEPTEMBER 3, 1972 chairman of the board, ARTHUR H. MOTLEY president, DANIEL O.
