WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round WASHINGTON - West Germany's leading news magazine, Stern, is the first periodical in the world to publish what may well be the real explanation for one suppressed part of the investigation of President Kennedy's death. Stern's senior editor Henri Nannen came to Washington to investigate the assassination, and talked with members of the Warren Commission. He is convinced that the Warren report is accurate and that no other assassin aside from Lee Harvey Oswald was involved. But Stern explains the suppression of the autopsy report on the grounds that President Kennedy was suffering from Addison's disease and his family did not want it known. This would have been revealed in the autopsy report. "The Kennedys had reason to keep silent," says Stern. "A sick Kennedy was killed in Dallas .... Kennedy had Addison's disease. This is not totally unknown; Theodore Sorenson mentioned it in his 'Kennedy' biography. "There is no medical reason why a man afflicted with this disease should not be President (since the illness can be controlled like diabetes), but politically Kennedy's illness could become dangerous. Addison's illness — it sounds sinister. Few Americans know of it and its symptoms. "For the Kennedys there was no doubt of the murderer- Lee Harvey Oswald." Continues Stern: "Already in 1964 Robert Kennedy told Egon Vacek, 'Don't you think I would do everything to get the real murderer if I had any doubts ?' - o - - ATTENTION TAX AGENTS t- Tips to Internal, Revenue: Check on Schick Safety Razors, a division of Eversharp, to see whether Patrick J. Frawley, Jr., chairman, charges off as legitimate advertising the Sunday supplement published in California Nov. 6, urging California voters to vote for Proposition 16. The Sunday supplement was billed as "a political advertisement," and therefore is not tax deductible... In Montgomery County, Md., you will find that Farm Bureau president George Lechlider wrote a potent political letter just before the election urging the defeat of Prof. Royce Hanson as Democratic Congressman. The Farm Bureau has a tax exemption . . . Also take a look at the vigorous political activities of Stefan T. Possony, sparkplug of the Hoover Library in Leland Stanford University, which also enjoys tax exemption on the basis of being nonpolitical. - o - -SACRED MUSIC BATTLE Constitution Hall, over which a famous controversy was waged when the Daughters of the American Revolution barred singer Marian Anderson,is now the scene of a different kind of controversy. This time the Baptist Ministers Conference, many of its members Negroes, is boycotting Constitution Hall because Puke .Ellington, famed Negro musician, DREW PEARSON played there Dec. 5 and the Baptists claim his music is not "sacred." The Duke is playing under the auspices of the Interdenominational Church Ushers Association, which is raising money for the Children's Hospital, Big Brothers and the Ionia Whipper Home. However, elder Negro leaders among the Baptists have risen up in wrath against a Duke Ellington concert which claims to be religious. "He is a nightclub showman," they contend. - o - - WORK OF ONE LADY- A unique conference took place in Washington last week, organized by one lady. The lady is Mrs. Agnes Meyer, widow of the late chairman of the Washington Post, and the conference is to promote public schools. The meetings illustrate what one citizen can do to help the nation. Mrs. Meyer, now almost 80, spent her early life as a teacher and welfare worker. She came to the conclusion that public schools were the backbone of America, that what built up a strong middle class in this country was .the fact that every child was entitled to a free education. Most Americans don't realize , it, but few other Western nations ' give their youth the same free public school education. Only the European communist countries have copied our system of free education. Attending its sessions, were educators and legislators from all over the nation, plus private citizens ranging from Gen. Omar Bradley to author John Hersey, to Ex-Gov. Terry Sanford of North Carolina, to George Gallup of the Gallup Poll, all contributing their time to helping make democracy live. - o - — HEROES WITHOUT. HEADLINES- Congratulations to the Madera Tribune for exposing the law fees received by California State Senator James M. Cobey from two irrigation districts at the same time Cobey was chairman of the California Senate's Water Resources Committee. It was this conflict of interest which chiefly contributed to Cobey's defeat .... Congratulations to Sherwood Ross of radio station WOL for taking on Washington, D. C., landlords in the "war on slums" in the nation's capital. Despite tenants' fear of eviction, they reported housing violations to Ross, who working with D. C. inspectors has reported 3,000 violations. An estimated 900 dwelling units have been cleaned up in Washington .... Congratulations to Marvin Sosna, editor of the Thousand Oaks News-Chronicle in California, for exposing shoddy building practices in the San Francisco Bay area. County inspectors have been wobbly and real estate interests have tried to boycott the News-Chronicle, but Editor Sosna is putting up a courageous battle against them, Congratulations to the Teamsters Union for launching a massive $2 million project to train 1,800 people, in southern California, in truck driving, auto mechanics and passenger-car driving. The Teamsters are working with the UCLA's Institute of Industrial Relations and are trying to help school dropouts. Armistead L. Boothe, Alexandria, Va. - Thanks for calling our attention to the fact that the 1924 law suit against Congressman Howard Smith of Virginia and William P. Woolls was dismissed by the Supreme Court of Appeals in Virginia. The main point of our column was to refute Congressman Smith's statement that his integrity had never been questioned prior to our earlier column. It had been questioned in this law suit, even though in the end he won. leal Estate Transfers SAIGON, VIETNAM — Kenneth W. Roeber, 22, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur A.
