BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.); COURIER NEWS ffoxl Control Captive Nazis Build Huge Model Of Entire Mississippi Basin JACKSON, Miss., Oct. 30, (UP)— Brawny German prisoners of war arc being used to help harness the mighty Mississippi river In a Illll- putlan engineering project. When It is completed, it Is e.fpect- ,ed to put an-effective curb.on llic Aperiodic Hoods of the great stream. 1 Ihe work of these prisoners, earned out a few miles .south of the Clinton, Miss., prisoner-of-war ciimp, is no mere pastime. It lias as its serious nml constructive object the building of a mde-sctnare topographical or "relief map" out of nature, In the form of a precision-scaled model for hydraulic control of the entire Mississippi basin. Eventually this mammoth reservoir-control model will provide United States engineers with a'scientific check on water levels in virtually every stream emptying Into the big river. The Important model project Is tlic result of years of study or Hood- control methods in the Mississippi b^sin by Maj. Gen. Eugene Roy- bolcl, chief of engineers in the United Stales Army. Known as tl'.e "Cecil B. DeMillc of floods," General Reybold after, years of practical adaptation of a control reservoir model of the Helena, Ark.,-to-Doualdsonville, La., flood area, hit upon the idea for a larger hydraulic model "map." The 1 Clinton project was the outgrowth. And its cost is seme Indication of the seriousness with which the Army regards the objective, $3,000,000 for the model alone. Its practical purpose is to provide a visual means of studying the many problems which arise in the operation of the large number of reservoirs now built or planned in the Mississippi watershed. When all projected reservoirs are completed, the mile-square Clinton model will serve as the guide or control for the operation of hydraulic works costing one and one half billion dollars. In its entirety the model measures 4500 feet from Montana to North Carolina, and 3500 feet from Lake Michigan to New Orleans. How They Stand ^en in Service Herman Cross Posey, son of Mr. and Mrs. I,, c. Posey of BlytheviUe, has been promoted lo the rank of corporal. Corporal Posey Is sta- (loued at Bougainville Island, having been In the South Pacific since February. Another son of tlic poscy's, Lieut. L. C. Posey Jr., now Is flying B- 25's and P-40'soutof India, where he lias been stationed for the past year. German General Arrives In U. S. Surrendered Entire Army Of 20,000 Men At Orleans, France WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, (UP)- Tlie German general who presented the United States Army with Its biggest single prisoner bag of the war, 20,000 troops, has arrived In the United States. He is Maj. Gen. Bolho von Ell- slcr, Nazi commander who marched his men Into American captivity at Orleans, Prance, early in September after they had be American forces, southern France. Jap Treatment of American Prisoners Writes Black Chapter In War History PAGE By VK'fKK KDSON' NKA-Courier News Washington C'oires|)omlr-nt .The story of the 20,000 American soldiers and civilians held captive uy the Japanese makes one of the blackest clmplcns In flic history of the war. There are still some 2000 to 3000 missing from the Bataan group. No Filipinos IMC ever been reported to this country, the Japs claiming that Is none of our business. Since last March, the Japs have reported the names of only 02 captured Americans, lint, there have becii propaganda broadcast fo messages to next of kin from 1000 American soldiers, sailors and marines not yet reported as captured. Deaths have been reporter 'wo years after they occurred. Prom most of (he Japanese prison cimips, the Americans may send home only one post card or one letter a year. Prom i\ few of (he show camps the number may be three or four massages H year, bul that Is n maximum. Some messages liave been two or tlirce years on the way.

The American soldier, a veteran of the Tunisian, Sicilian and Italian campaigns, reported that Ger- mnn commissioned officers avoid the battlelincs, leaving command at the front in the hands of non-commts- sioned officers. Says Friedman: "I don't know where the officers go, but I got the impression that the German troops don't like it .very Team Little Rock North L. H. Hope . ... El Dorado . Pine Bluff . Jonesboro .

Friedman said Nazi leaders have taught German civilians to expect only the worst of American soldiers and he adds: "The.German civilians there show terrific fear, propagandized fear, that they'll be killed by the Americans. This gradually changes to amazement when they find they're not going to be killed." Now that the Allies are on German ground, says Friedman, the Germans are fighting "desperately as we haven't seen them fight since North Africa." Still worse than the mall situation, however, is inability to get adequate medicines, clothing nnd food supplies to the inmates of the Jap camps. For two years the U. S. Department of State, the Red Cross and ttic Swiss government acting as the neutral protecting power in representing American interests, have tried to find some formula for shipping in relief supplies acceptable lo tlie Japanese, But every proposal meets with the diplomatic stall and rim-arouud. The way matters stand now, 2000 tons of relief supplies linve been shipped overland across Siberia lo Vladivostok. The Russians have agreed lo transfer the supplies to a port south of Vladivostok, where the Japs tentatively hnvc .agreed to [lick them up. lint—Ihcv haven't done it yet! These negotiations hnvc been going on since March, 1943,. To proposals that medicines be sent in by air. the Japs made no answer whatever. In the summer of 1042 the United States chartered a nciitrai vessel to'carry in supplies .for prisoner of wiir relief, bill the Japs refused to give it safe conduct to move in Japanese waters aim furthermore indicated they would not send one of their own ships to a neutral port. The Japs will permit the International Red Cross fo administer relief only in Hong Kong and parts of Jap-occupied China, uul not In Jupan, (ln> Philippines, Mnlnyti or (he milch East Indies. In the fiice of tills sinlcmntc the only relief supplies which have been forced through Japanese red tope were shipments on the two voyages of Ihe Grlpsholm In 1012 and 1013 for the exchange of soino 2GDU • civilian nationals. .Assurances have been given (hat, these supplies were distributed by the Japs to their prisoners, but all efforts lo arrange for further exchanges of personnel have met with Japanese refusals to even discuss the subject. Japan's diplomatic oiil for nil this had behavior Is Unit her government did m>! ratify the Geneva convention of 1920, relative to the traitinent of prisoners of wtir. At Ihe outbreak of Ihe war, however, the U. S. government obtained assurances from the Japanese that they would apply the principles set forth in the convention to the treatment of Its American cap- lives nnd to American civilian ln- (ernces. How well the Japs have lived up to these assurances are best shown by the record. SPREAD I'Alt AND WIDE Representatives of tlic Swiss government and the Inlcrniillonal Red Cross have been perirUlled lo visit only n lew of the camps at which Americans are held prisoner.
