Book or No Book, College Photos-of Coeds SEATTLE, Sept. 13 length nude photographs of girls who are entering the University of Washington caused a campus furor today. The photographs were made for a research laboratory of the Co- lumbia university (New York City) medical school. Parents raised a storm of pro- test, and university authorities said the picture-taking would be stopped Immediately. The young women, mostly freshmen or transfer students, complained they had not been told why they were being posed. Miss Barbara Honeyman, ex- ecutive director of Constitution laboratory, the Columbia univer- sity medical school research proj- ect, said the photos were being taken for Dr. William Sheldon, a widely known scientist writing a series of books on the relation of human structure to human be- havior. Miss Honeyman blamed the outburst on an unexpectedly heavy registration. "We had so many _girls standing in line were not able to answer all their questions as to what the photo- graphs were for." Dr. Sheldon, a physician and a psychologist, had published a bracing his findings. a Columbia sppkesr man said, "the project attempts to determine if a relationship ex- ists between an individual's be- haviour and his physique, and to establish patterns for medical diagnosis and treatment." The university said that the photographs now being taken by Dr. Sheldon's associates will be included in an atlas for somato- typing women. The atlas, to be published later, will appear with "faces and other identifying fea- tures obliterated as is customary in all medical the uni- versity said. Dr. Raymond B. Allen, univer- sity president who ordered the photographs impounded, said, "There is no hint of misuse of the photographs. Every precau- tion is taken." "It is most unfortunate that this criticism has said Dr. Allen. "This is a scientific study. Pictures have been taken at other schools in connection with the research project." The research program has been going on for 15 years, and the women were photographed one at a time in a room where they were alone with the woman pho- tographer and the woman who was posing them.

Walker, allied ground commander in Korea, said in a fighting talk to his front line "Soon we are going to give up the attitude of defense as soon as we start forward and break the crust in front of us, the enemy will fold.

Sept. 13 line troops in Korea who like beer will continue to get free. This is on the word of a high army official who declined use of his name lest he get all foamed up in controversy. An army order yesterday remov- ing the one-can-a-day ration in Ko- rea raised a howl of protest heard as far as Washington. Combat troops had been getting a small can of beer as a free ration. Some of the boys who don't like beer wrote home about it. There were protests. Beer was stricken from the ration. "What was not made clear back home was that the beer was in ad- dition to normal rations and did not take the place of other said source. "Bottles of soft drinks also have been given to frontline men and many chose cokes over beer. And there was always water, coffee and cocoa." Under the new arrangements, no more beer will be furnished troops from appropriated funds taxpay- ers' money allocated by congress. But the army has non-appropriated funds. This is revenue from small charges for various items in post exchanges and theatre admissions. Callister to Quit Board oi Health SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 13 (AP) Dr. A.

Mysinger called on his neighbors for, help and within minutes almost the en- tire population of this Columbia river logging town, some 600 peo- ple, responded. While the rescuers shoveled faster and faster, Ronald's screams grew fainter until finally they stopped altogether. The crowd was silent, praying that soon the men would reach the child.

Didn't Like Programs LONDON, Sept. 13 ence Hardy, 28, explained in court :oday why she heaved a brick hrougb. a window at the main studio of British Broadcasting ;orp.: "I felt the place needed to >e livened up a bit We have been laving some lousy programs lately." mander described the long weeks of delaying action as necessary "agony and suffering." Only through such an ordeal, he said, could the allies build up pow- er for an offensive. Triple Threat Drive Walker's fighting talk came as allied troops flattened the red Ko- rean bulge on the northeast front in a triple threat power drive. The United Nations gains in a three-day offensive were the great- est in nearly a month. They sealed much of the gap torn last week by communists in their massive breakthrough south from Kigye near the east coast. Resurgent South Korean troops, driving east from Yongchon and northwest from Kyongju, rolled back the communists. To the east, a mixed force of South Koreans and Americans rammed shut the southern gate of a mountain corridor, trapping red Koreans. This task force was led by 47- year-old Brig. Gen. Gar Davidson, former West Point football coach and right end. It was a brilliant end sweep west from the Pohang area by "Task Force Davidson" that trapped the reds. Three mile Gap Closed Along the 125-mile allied de- fense perimeter, this was the ajc- ture: Pohang-Yongchon Force Davidson" closed a mile gap between Angang and Po- tiang. From the west, the South Korean eight division thrust three- fourths of the way to red held Angang. It has punched 12 miles in three days. A South Korean regiment drove northwest from Kyongju to close this last gap. Reds dug in on hill 343 southwest of Angang were resisting fiercely. Taegu sector U. S. First cav- alry division elements attacked a strongly fortified hill eight miles north of Taegu. This was in the immediate area where they stormed and won a hill Tuesday at heavy cost. Other units seized high ground north of the Waegwan area, a few miles west. The reds pushed foot troopers off an im- Dortant peak nine miles northwest of Taegu. Changnyong sector all quiet. Red Pocket Wiped Out Masan sector American big guns wiped out 200 red Koreans is they stormed a dominant peak 'our miles south of the Nam-Nak- tong river junction. U. S. 25th di- vision engineers battled 300 reds who had infiltrated the line. Air support was called to help wipe out the pocket. The triple pronged drive on the lortheast front lifted a threat to Pohang airport and eased a situa- tion that was considered "desper- ate" only nine days ago. AP Correspondent Bern Price said the reds' failure to exploit their massive breakthrough was "one of the major mysteries" of the war. The. reds swept in force through Angang to the outskirts of Kyongju and into Yongchon, gateway to Taegu. "Task Force Davidson" was called to wipe out the threat to' Pohang airfield. The reds had driven a wedge last week-end five miles deep and three miles wide into the allied line between Ang- ang and Pohang. "We watched the penetration and it gradually grew said Davidson. The handsome, ex-football star led a flying column of South Ko- reans and Americans west across "billygoat" country or worse. The reds were massed in a cor- ridor running between high peaks. South Koreans already had sealed the northern pass. Davidson's composite force swept over three ridges at the southern gate. Showered with Bombs Allied warplanes showered jel- lied gasoline fire bombs and ma- chinegun fire at the communists, dug in on flinty slopes. "Task Force Davidson" stormed the heights. The remnants of about 700 reds who were holding the southern gate fled to the northwest. They either had to scramble over peaks to their own lines or face death or capture.
