Thursday, March 3. 1966 •** War Baffle Names Are Convenient SAIGON. South Viet Nam ( A P ) "Opeation Buckskin. which terminated recently, accounted for 93 Viet Cong killed, 11 captured," and so on. That was the account that originated in Saigon. Why was that particular mission of the U.S. 1st Infantry Division in Hau Nghia Province called Operation Buckskin? Why not Operation Rover? or Operation Big Shot? The operation actually could have been called just about anything- Troops afield on a specific mission carry out their operation under a name that sets it apart from other specific missions. In high channels, it is simply easier to speak of Operation Buckskin than to say that men of the U.S. 1st Infantry Division are engaging the enemy, capturing him and his arms together with tons of rice, and are suffering light casualties, as was the case in adjoining Hau Nghia Province. The name of an operation is taken from a master list and is chosen at the planning level at senior headquarters well in advance of the actual kickoff. The master list is maoe up of names chosen at random but consists of names that can be transmitted with ease and with a minimum chance of misunder- standiog by voice, telephone and radio. It would obviously be courting trouble to have Operation Dolly and Operation Polly being carried out at the same time. Several operations in the war in Viet Nam have been designated by the names of U.S. presidents — Van Buren, Tay- io. Harison. Others — at random — have !>een called Starlight, Blue Marlin, Mastiff, Double Eagle, and so on. Some names have been taken from comic strip characters. Two famous operational names are remembered from World War H: Operation Overlord for the invasion of Europe and Operation Olympia for the invasion of Japan. Ekberg Now Sporting A Brown Top By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Cool self-assured and brown-haired — that's right: brown-hatred Anita Ekberg is making one of her infrequent returns to the town where she found fame, but not success. The Swedish dazzler is here to play a Soviet astrobeauty in a Jerry Lewis film, "Way . Way Out." The title is descriptive, because the movie deals with a wacky flight to the moon This takes me back to the first time I observed the formi cable figure of Ekberg. It was in 1952, and she had just com peted in the Miss Universe pag eant as Miss Sweden. Along with other contestants, she was appearing as a moon maiden ii a Universal romp called "Abbott and Costello go to Mars." What happened to the other contestants is unknown. Miss Ekberg advanced to better things, including two films with Jerry Lewis and a contact with John Wayne's Batjac Produc tions. "Hollywood didn't know wha to do with me," she said this week as she relaxed in her skimpy astro-leotard. "They could only cast me as a femme fatale because of my accent. They didn't stop to realize tha Greta Garbo and Ingrid Berg man had been able to play a variety of roles here before me ' - I wanted to play comedy, bu I was never considered for it. The producers figured I was sex type, and that was that." Anita fled in frustration to the less monolithic film industry o Rome, and there she established herself a s a n actress as well as a sex type, especially in "La Dolce Vita" and "Boccaccio 70." She returned here two years ago for the uumemorabl "Four for Texas" with Fran! Sinatra and Dean Martin, bu has spent the remainder of he recent years in Europe.
