PAG1 TWO BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.) COUNTER NEWS TUESDAY, ATJWi! 14, MM Many Missing American Soldiers Held in North Korean ROW Camps •AN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14. (A*)Unofficial estimates Indicated today that, of the 10,624 Americans officially listed at missing !n action In KoreR, a& many RJI 4,500 probably are being held In Communist war prisoner camps. This figure comes from Allied military sources which cannot b* named but which are in, R.I good position as anyone on the Allied itd« to know the score on this hush-hush matter, The prisoners are said to be confined near Kanggye, deep Inside North Korea about 20 air miles from the Manchurian frontier. Reliable Information reaching Allied authorities said Chinese Red leaders do not want Allied prisoners transferred to Chinese soil. To do *o would destroy the Communist contention that only Chinese "volunteers" are fighting in Korea. The number of AmercLan and other U. N. prisoners never his been announced by the Reds. Allied sources estimate the total number at approximately lO.OftO. Radio Carries S'anies The 'Communist Pciplng radio has carried over a period of months the names of approximately 1,000 Americans it Was snid were being held In Korea. The Red radio released the nntne.s a few at a time In propaganda broadcasts from Jan- .viary through early July. There have been numerous duplications. Invariably the broadcasts, purporting to be messages written by the prisoners themselves, stressed that the men were being well treated. Most nf the ."messages" urged that foreign troops be withdrawn from Korea so the war could end. Since the Kaesong military armistice conference opened July 10. and the question of troop withdrawals was deferred until a later conference at a higher level, the Red radio has made no further broadcasts o( prisoner messages, Little Said oh Treatment Allied authorities have said little about the treatment of prisoners for /ear that a chance remark might anger the Redd and make life harder for the prisoners. Even men who have escaped from the Reds, or have been llber- atedj have been cautioned not to • wvy anything that might react af^jnft their comrades. However, t group of IB Marines who escaped last April on the central front confirmed that prisoners wer* fed the same food as Communist troops and were given medical attention. Marine MaJ.
