Can you tell me if Marianne Failhfull, former girlfriend of Rolling Stone Leader Mick /agger, is a heroin addict?--Pearlie.Cousins, Dallas, Tex. A. Several weeks ago the 25-year-old singer-actress voluntarily turned herself into a hospital in the south of England for heroin addiction. She should be out any day now if she isn't already. Q. / understand that if Elvis Presley divorces his wile Priscilla it will cost him around $5 million. Is that m why he is being booked into Honolulu?--I. L Yama- srtita, San Francisco, Calif. A. Presley is no longer the film attraction he once was. As a result, his manager, Colonel Parker, is booking him into selected locations for personal appearances, is discussing the possibility of having Elvis appear on cable TV. Elvis has been booked for three shows into Honolulu International Center Arena in mid-November. At this time it is difficult to determine how much his contemplated divorce will cost him in terms of dividing community property. Q. This past June when she was in Newport Beach, Calif., Martha Mitchell said a security guard threw her on the bed and gave her an injection in her fanny to quiet her down. Was the security guard who did that Steve King, in charge of security for the Committee to Reelect the President?--S. Lane, Washington, D.C. A. It was not Steve King who injected Mrs. Martha Mitchell in the upper extremity of her thigh. It is true that King accompanied the Mitchells to California as a bodyguard, but he was not involved in the needle "caper as described by Mrs. Mitchell. King is now security director for theCommittee for Reelection of the President, but he was not on June 17th. In June that position was occupied by James W. McCord Jr., who was arrested with four other persons for allegedly breaking into the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C, and attempting to bug Democratic National Headquarters in a plot financed in part by Republican campaign contributions. If in fact Mrs. Mitchell was "needled" by anyone, and she has always been a scrupulously truthful woman, it is safe to assume that she was injected by a physician or nurse qualified to do so. Steve King says he is not. Q. Are there any books on Henry Kissinger which remotely tell the truth of his life and his policies?-Frank Ulrich, San Marino, Calif. A. Danielle Hunebelle, a French journalist who fell in love with Kissinger, has written a paperback, Dear Henry, which deals largely with her frustrations. David Landau, a young college graduate formerly with The Harvard Crimson, has written a brilliant analysis in depth of what makes Henry run and the failure of his Vietnam war policy in Kissinger: The Uses of Power. It will be published by Houghton Mifflin on Oct. 2. The Kalb brothers, Marvin and Bernard, of CBS-TV, are preparing a book, The Wide Wide World of Henry Kissinger, to be published next April by Norton, which is also Kissinger's publisher. One of Henry's former girlfriends is also considering the writing of a book on his sex life, to be entitled, Much Talk--Little Action. ARISTOTLE AND JACKIE ONASSJS Q. // Aristotle Onass/s dies, will )ackie, his widow, inherit his estate?--Mavis Donovan, Roxbury, Mass. A. Undoubtedly, she will inherit some portion of it. According to Christian Cafarakis, author of The Fabulous Onass/s: His Life and Loves, "If Onassis dies while Jackie's still his wife, she'll inherit $100 million outright, while the rest of his fortune--which must be at least six times that--will go to his children Christina and Alexandre." Q, Of the nine justices on the U.S. Supreme Court, who is the richest?--Danny Arnold, Miami, Fla. A. Most probably Justice Lewis Powell, a millionaire corporation attorney, before Nixon appointed him to the court. JOSEPHINE POWEU HELPS lUSTICE INTO HIS ROM Q. Is it true that Richard Wagner, like the U.S. President Warren C. Harding, stole his best friend's wife?--G. Haupt, Baltimore, Md. A. Cosima Liszt, daughter of the Hungarian composer and pianist, Franz Liszt, was married to Hans Von Bulow, the famou« firman conductor who helped popularize the works of Richard Wagner. For years while she was still married to Von Bulow, Cosima carried on an affair with Wagner. Finally in 1870 she married Wagner. Intimate details about their love affair were revealed this past summer when the diaries of Cosima Wagner were removed from the vault of a Munich bank. Thus far Cosima's diaries have not been published, largely because the family fears that they might discredit Wagner who created a musical landmark in the 19th century with his compositions. Q. Who was rea//y responsible for the McCovern- Eagleton mess? Was it Senator McCovern or his campaign manager, Frank Mankiewicz? Also, is Frank any relation to Herman Mankiewicz who wrote the famous movie. Citizen Kane?--Louis Schroeder, Milwaukee, Wis. A. Poor staff work was responsible for the McGovern-Eagleton embarrassment. The background check on Eagleton by Mankiewicz and others was simply inadequate. Frank Mankiewicz is the son of the late, distinguished screenwriter, Herman J. Mankiewicz, author of Citizen Kane. THE SUNDAY NEWSPAPER MAGAZINE SEPTEMBER 10, 1972 chairman of the board, ARTHUR H.
