WASHINGTON, March 12. tifl — President Truman says It is safer lor him a^ home if he isn't photographed in bathing trunks. Mrs. Tr'.imar won't stand for It. And that, he says, is the real rea- .;on why White House aides insisted they snust .se:?.c a batch ol informal pictures made of tlie'Presi- dent ana fviencis last week when he was vacationing at KLcv West, Fla. Mr. Truman talked about it at the dinner last Snuirdf.y night of the White House News Photographer.-:' Association. It was not "censorship" he said with a grin, but "•> safety . measure so I could conic he me." The pictures—both news reels and Hills-were taten trom a Navy bli.np. Photographers understood the project had been approved by proper authorities. They were astonished when Charles G. Ross Presidential press secretary, insisted on surrender ol the photos. At the time, White House aides , called it a security measure. But | they did net explain that it was security against Mrs. Trumar, s ^Mr Truman said that was it. Before he went to Key West, he said, "the boss" told him! ' ••Whatever you do, don't have any pictmes take in your batm»;< SU He said a picture like that was taken i" 1046 in Bermuda and Mis Truman has regarded it ever since as a "disgrace to the family." The President's story of the incident was told "off-the-recorrt," meaning not for publication. How- eve.- an account o! his remarks was published by the New York Dany News which said the publication was du-' to an "honest" mistake by Jerry Greene of its Washington stall. Today, ROSS declined to li!t the ••off-the-record" label from Hie Saturday night speech but saul further publication of the story was . a matter of "individual discretion.
