In stockades on Jan. 10 of th year were 122,658 Red prisoners o war. By far the greater par 101,555, were North Koreans; th rest were Chinese. To a consirte able degree, this reflected th huge groups of North Koreans ca| tured in 1950, before the Chines entered the war. No overall total for United Na lions personnel taken by the Red Is available. The U. S. lists 2,H2 America military personnel us captured b the enemy. But tills figure Is e.< sentially only the total reporte back through international chan nels. To it should be added «t leas •some of the 9,269 currently !iste< as missing. It Is difficult to say how mam, of any given number of missing men may be captured. A. rougl rule of (numb would be (hat nbou 25 per cent or less of the missing on any one day would be captured perhaps afler being wounded. Tha would be in a static situation Mich as exists now.

Prisoners are valuable In war especially on a static front. Except for air reconnissance nnd craps of information gained Iron agents, prisoners wilUhgly or un- villingly provide the only intelli- lence on enemy strength', deploy- nent and intentions. gLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)
