PAGE TEN BLVTHKV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER FRIDAY, AUGUST »1, Kinsey f s New Report Certain To Raise Hot Controversies By ALTON L. BLAKE8LEE NEW YORK (AP) — There is a raft of issues In controversies touched off by the new Kinsey report on women. The issues hinge on personal, religious, moral, and scientific viewpoints. The scientific arguments are not likely to get really underway until after Sept. 14 when the book, "Sexual Behavior in the Human Female," goei on sale. For as one scientist explained "It's a hot potato. I don't think most scientists will want to say much specifically until after read ing everything the book has to say." A famous anthropologist. Prof Earnest A. Hooton of Harvard, de. clined comment, adding "Heads not sex, are my business." A persona] issue for many people is whether to read the book al all. Some women declared they'l: Navy Orders End To Segregation At Shore Stations WASHINGTON UPl — Commanders of Navy shore stations are under orders to let secretary of the Navy Robert B. Anderson know at two-month intervals what they are doing toward eliminating racial segregation. The Navy disclosed the instructions yesterday after making study which showed that seperate facilities for white and Negro civilians were still maintained in about half the Southern shore stations investigated. Clarence Mitchell, director of the Washington bureau of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said the association hoped the first report would show "that all Jim Crow facilities have been eliminated."

Others look forward to reading It. Here a churchman terms the sex study project anti-religious and damaging to morality. There, another says religious leaders should accept the findings as a guide to help youths in sex matters and to strengthen married life. Some experts wonder If publication of the findings will upset present habits of sex life, influencing people to do things they learn thai others are doing. Other experts feel there won't be any real changes. On this point, Dr. Kinsey says he finds no statistical evidence of changes In mule hablU since the first book five years ago. Parent< Disagree . Dr. Lester S. Pearl, Drake University sociologist, says he thinks the book will help persons "throw off unnecessary fears—many persons are unduly concerned about .heir own personal behavior regarding sex and feel that what .hey do is abnormal when it is perfectly normal." Parents will disagree whether book is suitable to put within reach Bottled Milk Loses Vitamins In Sunlight NEW YORK UH — Two scientists iay bottled milk exposed to day- ight for half an hour or more •ets an off-taste "sunlight flavor" and loses vitamins. Stuart F.atton and Donald V. 'osephson of the Pennsylvania Agricultural Experiment Station, itate College, Pa., reported their indlngs yesterday in the maga- ine. Science. Tests showed, they said, that the liffcrcnt taste resulted from ex- losure to light alone, not heat, nd can happen in winter or sum- ner. of children and youths at borne or in libraries. There are parents who are reluctant to give their children any sex education and those who feel Ignorance .about sex is more dangerous than knowledge. There is crilicism that only or mainly exhibitionists ever volunteer to be interviewed by Dr. Kinsey, and that this makes the statistics untrustworthy. But other scientists and individuals besides Kinsey deny this, and say Kinscy's approach enlists cooperation from persons who never dreamed they | could be persuaded to talk aboul their sex lives. Some critics say people don't tell Kinsey the truth, that they exaggerate or cover up facts. Defenders praise his method of detecting boasting or overcoming reticence. Method of Selection Criticized Some statisticians criticized the first book as failing to get a representative cross-section of people because Kinsey didn't use tested methods of random selection of Interviewees. Kinsey replies he can't because pre-selected persons ap- aroached "cold" would often refuse :o talk. He says their confidence must first be won, they must be Gigantic Breakfast; Fire Department Cordially Invited DENVER I/D—The smell of sizzling bacon covered northern Denver last night as more than 250 slabs of the breakfast standby went up in smoke. A $15,000 fire swept through the K nmi B Packing Company's smokehouse. Also destroyed was the automatic control which regulated the amount of fumes that should normally smoke a ham. ALWAYS A DOUBLE FEATURE convinced their records would be cept secret. He admits lack of sufficient numbers of less well-educated women, of Catholic and devoutly-Jewish women In his present samples, and ack of enough case histories from some sections ol the country. A criticism Is that interviews with 5,940 Women aren't enough o find the typical habits of all American women. Kinsey admits .he findings report behavior typical of only a portion of U. S. women, but says it's probably "a not inconsiderable portion." It is, adds, the largest number ever ntervtewed this way. Perhaps the biggest bombshell to set off arguments is the finding that women who have experienced a sexual climax before marriage are much more likely to succeed early In marriage In achieving sexual satisfaction. Kinsey finds this holds whether the climax is experienced through actual sex relations with a mnn, through petting, or through self-stimulation. He says this must be studied, but makes no recommendations, an GAS TRUCK CRASHES, DRIVER BURNED TO DEATH — Firemen futlley battle roaring flames which engulfed this gasoline tank truck after it collided with a flat bed tractor-trailer truck (left) trapping the gasoline truck driver in the cab of his truck.

Wl -*Television has come to Santa Barbara, bringing with it Just about the hottest public controversy this normally peaceful community has ever experienced. The new 50.000-watt station KCYT, Santa Barbara's first, went on the air July 25 and since then the storm has been raging. Because of the peculiar graphical features, Santa Barbara viewers had been able to receive telecasts from Los Angeles, a hundred miles away, long before the Federal Communications Commission assigned any channel to this ity. But with the advent of the Santa Barbara station, local set owners have complained that it seriously interferes with reception of Los Angeles' seven channels, particu- arly Channel 2, which is CBS, and Channel 4, which is NBC. The San- Barbiira station operates on Channel 3. Mayor John T. Richard has directed the city engineer to make a survey of the problem. KEYT has • an investment ol more than $500,000 In its installa- ion. The station contracts for seeded programs of the CBS, NBC, Dumont and ABC networks.
