Augu»t24,1975 FROLIC Nudes Flood Massachusetts Beach In Protest of Ban TRURO, Mass. (AP) - More than 2,000 bathers, about 60 per cent of them not wearing a thing, gamboled on the beach Saturday in a demonstration against a ban on nude bathing. At first the nudists were heavily outnumbered at Brush Hollow Beach in the Cape Cod National Seashore, but crowds began arriving as a chilly 20-mile-an-hour wind off the water died down to almost nothing. The "beach party" had been promoted by the "Save the Free Beach" committee in protest against regulations against nude bathing adopted earlier in the year. Bathers played volleyball and hurled Frisbies, strolled, frolicked with their dogs, picnicked and swam under cloudless skies as the 10 Park Service rangers patrolled and did nothing to stop them. The Park Service estimated the crowd at 1.250. The Park Service provided six lifeguards and trash cans every few hundred feet for a half-mile, neither of which it had done before. "Everthing is going well from our point of view," said Park Supt. Lawrence Had- ley, who made the crowd estimate. · « · HE DID NOT say why he made no effort to enforce the ban. but it was clear his men were vastly outnumbered. Since April, several persons have re-' ceived summonses for bathing nude but so far no one has been arrested. At least four state police cruisers patrolled in and around Truro, with little apparently to do. since the beach is federal property. State police would normally visit here infrequently. Truro police towed illegally parked cars. Gil Ross, 47, a whisky wholesaler from the Bronx. N . Y . . and his wife. Elaine came with another couple, he said, "because we wanted to see the sights. This is one of the sights." All four were clothed. Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Law School professor who helped the American Civil Liberties Union in its unsuccessful U.S. District Court challenge of the new regulations, was hopeful.

Timtt Service NEW DELHI--Information Minister Y.C. Shukla issued a firm denial Saturday to jrumors that Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's 28-year-old son San jay has become prominent in policy making. He also'disclosed that the government. was planning to reorganize the country's newspapers to make them "really free". "No member of the prime minister's family has any interest in politics," Shuk- la'jaid at a meeting with two dozen foreign news correspondents here. "They don't interfere in 'administration. None of them even takes part." -"Shukla's-statement, which he said was prompted by "all kinds of stories that are being circulated" came at he end of a long news conference that covered a wide range of other subjects. , ; 'None of the reporters had asked about Sanjay Gandhi, a New Delhi businessman, but Shukla volunteered the denial to counter what he called "an unhealthy tendency tQJnvplve the prime minister's family in polities'." * » * [GANDHI AND HIS wife and his elder brother and sister-in-law all live'with Mrs. Gandhi, a window, in a modest but well- guarded house in the center of the capital. -The elder brother, Rajiv, is'an airline pilot who is. by all reports, nonpolitical. But in the political crisis of the last two- months, reports had placed San jay,-in .a "kitchen cabinet',' that had allegedly supplanted the prime minister's Bolder advisers. ·' - .--'" · - . ' ·'''.·.·: ·Shukla said that the news conference, his first since the.state of emergency was declared June.26, was ah attempt to re-establish "a good-relationship" with the for- eign correspondents, who have been forced to operate under various constraints. Shukla said hehad been "disappointed" in the dispatches of some foreign news reporters here. In an opinion that he shares with other high-ranking Indians, including Mrs. Gandhi, he said that Western newspapers seemed willing to print only bad or unfavorable news about India. * * · ,. · · IN THE TWO months of emergency. India has expelled five foreign correspond ents -- three Americans and two Britons. But the mood Saturday was friendly and cordial.- . . . · Shukla, who-assumed the information portfolio two days after the emergency was declared, promised to hold monthly sessions like the one Saturday. . ;!He said the government was drawing up plans to reorganize the country's newspapers, "'to make the press really free." Although the changes were still being worked out, Shukla said, he envisioned legislation putting editorial control of a paper in the hands of a committee or board of editors, which would not, he emphasized, include representatives qf the government. Shukla also said that/the total number of arrests made under the emergency pow- ers'that the government assumed in late June,.when some civil liberties"were suspended, had been around 10,000. ; Y6f those, he said "less than 1,000" were · arrests made on political grounds and of the political detainees, perhaps one-third had subsequently been released. Most of the others were economic offenders, he said, such as smugglers and Currency speculators. " '" '' '·'· ' ' " n Metropolitan Museum to Pay .1 Million for Japanese A rt ·'»· (Q New York,Timei Service ',NEW YORK-.The Metropolitan Muse; urn has agreed to pay $5.1 million for 412 works of.Japanese art, a collection that will raise its Japanese holdings to among the finest of any museum in the country. ~ Though not the most expensive of the Mel's purchases-$5-5 million was paid in .1971 for Velazquez's "Don Juan rte Oare- ta"-this is the; largest group of objects the museum has ever bought. The collection has been appraised by Japanese experts at $11.3 million! and the balance of $6.2 million is being treated by the museum as a gift from the seller, Harry Packard, an American dealer and collec- ter. .The purchase price will be paid to a charitable trust Packard has set up for the study of Japanese art in Japan. 'With the purchase the Metropolitan Museum will move in strength into an area that has hitherto been one of its weakest. The Far East department, first set up in 1915, is considered by many experts to have slumbered for the first half-century of existence. · 'This one stroke "brings the Met's Japanese holdings into the class of those at the Freer Gallery in Washington, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Cleveland Museum of Art. in the view of a number of experts outside the Metropolitan. · "If the object was to buy a lot of very good Japanese art and buy it fast, this was the best way of doing it." the director of the major museum said. Thomas P.F. Hoving. director of the Metropolitan Museum, said the collection had "surpassing strengths in archeology. THE SCOPlf of the collection runs from neolilhic^imes to the present century. As an indication of its size, the museium can point to the 65 examples of primitive art. the 148 paintings, scrolls and screens and the 129 examples of ceramics from the eighth to the 19th centuries. In the words of Wen Fong, the museum's special consultant for Far Eastern affairs, it is as if Packard tad set out to build "a i grand survey course in Japanese civiliza tion. .
