Disinterest frustrates youth searching for American MIAs DOVtR-NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)— Mark Shoemaker, 19, has returned home frustrated after a world tour talking with officials about American sollders still miss- Ing in Southeast Asia. Shoemaker was among a dozen 18-24-year-olds who spent nearly a month talking to officials in Saigon, France, Russia, Sweden, Laos, Thailand, Hong Kong and Japan. "We took one million signatures with us. But maybe it will take three million," Shoemaker said. "Granted, some place crashes will never be found. Some men will never be accounted for. But there's just so many that can be," hi added. Shoemaker said that of more than 1,300 Americans missing in Southeast Asia, the government has proof that 58 were once alive In Communist hands. But when questioned, the Communist officials said, "we don't have any knowledge of this," Shoemaker said. "They skip over it by simply saying they have released all the prisoners," he said. Shoemaker said when they asked a spokesman for the Lao Patriotic Front why his country won't release Emmet Kay, an American who was forced to land his plane in Laos in May 1973, the spokesman said, "We have too many other Important things to do before we bother about him." Shoemaker said the spokesman told the group Kay had violated the cease- fire. The youths said they thought many foreign leaders agreed to see them simply because they were curious about meeting American teenagers, or "thought it would look good," Shoemaker said. But after three members of the group talked to the North Vietnamese in Paris, they refused to let them into Hanoi or see them again In* Saigon, Shoemaker said. J ». "They were apparently* shocked that we knew so much," he said, He criticized member* of the Joint Central Commla-' sion to Implement the Ac-jj cord and the Joint Casualty. Resolution Committee for; not pushing the Communists' harder. '>. He urged Americans to; start a massive letter-writing campaign to Communist' officials similar to the oner that was launched to improve treatment of American prisoners during the Vietnam war.
