In Tuesday's editions of The Washington Post, the pictures accompanying obituaries of Myron Louis Eanet, 56, who died Saturday, and retired Army Col. Julian B. Lindsey, who died Sunday, were transposed and wrongly identified. Photographs of Mr. Eanet and Col. Lindsey appear here with correct captions. Picture 1, MYRON L. EANET; Picture 2, Julian B.

Julian R. Lindsey, 74, a retired Army colonel who was assistant to the president of the Army Distaff Foundation, died at Walter Reed Army Hospital Sunday of an aortal aneurysm.
Col. Lindsey was born into an Army family in Vermont. He graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1929 and was commissioned in the infantry. He commanded an infantry regiment in the 29th Division in Europe in World War II.
During the Korean conflict, he was chief of staff of the 3rd Infantry Division there. He later served as post commander of Fort Meade, Md., and of Fort Sheridan, Ill., where he retired from the service in 1959.
He moved to the Washington area after leaving the Army and had been assistant to the president of the Army Distaff Foundation, which operates the Army Distaff Hall here, since them. The hall is a home for Army wives.
Col. Lindsey's decorations include three Bronze Star medals.
Survivors include his wife Judith, of the home in Bethesda; a son, Robert H., a retired Army major, of Atlanta; a daughter, Anne Lindsey Pearson, also of Atlanta, and six grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Army Distaff Hall, Washington, D.C.
