14A/DBS M01NES SUNDAY REGISTER • Aug. 81,1978 Lewis' 'secret' on telethon LAS VEGAS, NEV. (AP) "This is my one secret," says entertainer Jerry, Lewis, who steadfastly refuses to explain his long-time role as a fundraiser for the fight against muscular dystrophy. "Pattl and I have been married 31 years, from before I even started on dystrophy, and I've never even told her," said the comedian as he dabbed at Ills perspiring face and caught his breath between the acts of his night club show. "She'd be the first, but even she doesn't know," he said. "And she doesn't ask." With his tenth Labor Day Telethon Against Muscular Dystophy ready to go, television viewers are no closer to knowing the motivation for Lewis'private campaign against the crippling disease. "I'll tell you this much - and it's more than I usually say: If I told you, It really could easily backfire," he said. "And It would be my kids who would suffer. So it's my secret and I'm gonna keep it." Lewis, national chairman for 25 years of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, has conducted Labor Day telethons since 1966 for the thousands of his "kids" who are stricken by Muscular Dystrophy, a group of related neuromuscular diseases. His first telethon, broadcast over a single station, was the first in the country to raise more than $1 million. Last year, the network telethon received $16.1 million in pledges, 99.6 per cent of which were redeemed. This year's 21%-hour broadcast will be carried by 195 sta- tions. It will originate from the Sahara Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip as It has for the last two yean. The telethon will begin at 3 p.irt. EDT Sunday and run through 12:30 p.m. Labor Day. Lewis will be on camera for almost the entire show. Ed McMahon of the Tonight Show will be anchorman for the tele- cut.
