SEOUL, South Korea - South Korean

Travelers from the port city of Mok-
po, 44 miles southwest of Kwangju, said
about 20,000 people staged anti-gover-
nment demonstrations on Wednesday
and that some protests had coptinued
yesterday. There was no report of
violence in the city, the birthplace of
jailed dissident leader Kim Dae-Jung,
but information was sketchy because
martial law authorities had barred
traffic and telephone lines were out.
THE PROVINCIAL capital of
Kwangju, retaken in a fierce three-hour
gunbattle early Tuesday after it had
been held by student-led rebels for nine
days, remained under tight occupation
by thousands of soldiers.
Police in riot gear fanned out through,
the capital yesterday, stopping and
searching students in a move to head
off renewal of anti-government demon-
Troops were stationed on most main
streets and at many barricades in and
around the provincial capital. Several
tanks remained at the provincial
government headquarters and some
other points, but most of the 50 tanks
sent in during the rebellion were
THE U.S. EMBASSY warned
Americans to stay out of the area. In
announcements yesterday on Armed
Forces Radio, the embassy asked all
U.S. civilians, their number estimated
"in the thousands," to register by

The nine-day insurrection in
Kwangju claimed at least 186 lives.
Another 310 people were seriously in-

arrested. Most of the casualties were
Some of the bodies of those killed in
the rebellion were being claimed by
their families and buried individually.
The government said it had conducted
brief preliminary autopsies on the vic-
tims to determine how they were killed,
but claimed it could not tell.
A spokesman for the U.S. Defense
Department in Washington said three
Korean infantry regiments totaling
some 7,800 men had been returned to
the control of Gen. John Wickham,

Ability to taste foods

jects if they could taste something other
than water (in the solutions) - they
didn't have to know what it was."
THE STUDIES revealed a slight in-
crease in a person's taste threshold as
age increased, she said. But while the
change was statistically significant, it
was not large enough to affect a per-
son's eating habits.
"I expected to see a more dramatic
change in.the older people's sense of
taste," said Loretta Moore, a former
student who conducted the sucrose
taste test. "I work with the elderly, and
many of them complain that their food
doesn't taste like it used to." Moore
suggested there may be other reasons
for a change in eating habits among the
elderly, such as the eating environment
or the type of food they eat (in-
stitutional as opposed to home-cooked).
Mistretta agreed that when people
complain their sense of taste has
changed, it is often their "overall ap-
preciation" of food that has changed in-
stead. "People often confuse taste and
flavor," she said. "Flavor includes how
something tastes, how it smells, how it
looks, what its temperature is, and even
PHYLLIS GRZEGORCZYK, one of
the students who conducted the salt-
tasting study, said some changes occur
in the eating patterns of the elderly, and
recommended the'use of lemon juice or
other spices in place of salt.
Mistretta added that eating habits of
Americans have degenerated in recent
years, and people often eat only what is
necessary to maintain their health.
"Fast food places are geared to get-
ting something to eat and moving on.
Eating can be a pleasant social oc-
casion. We tend to appreciate food
more when we're taking time over a
meal and eating with someone we care
about," Mistretta said.
