—The American-Korean Foundation and the United States Army Medical Service have announced the discontinuation of their joint project of shipping medical books contributed by individual physicians, medical schools, hospitals, and state and local medical societies to Korea.Books should not be sent to the Sharpe General Depot in California as in the past, for facilities no longer exist for packing and transshipping to Korea.In making the announcement, Howard A. Rusk, M.D., President, American-Korean Foundation said, "The response of physicians and medical groups throughout the country for our appeal for books for Korean medical schools has been so generous that further contributions are not needed." As a result of this program, Dr. Rusk stated, over 77 tons, valued at $76,000, of medical texts, references, and periodicals have been shipped to Korea for distribution to Korean medical schools.
