Jron F««e H ftiofe Were Ordered TOKYO 110— High-level officers In the United Nations Command today said riots and incidents in U.N. prisoner camps were provoked by smnll bands of die-hard Communists acting on orders to show that the UNC Is mistreating POWs. One riot, at Pusan yesterday, ami one incident, on violence-ridden Koje Island earlier this month, occurred in prisoner hospitals. The next move of the Reds, the officers said, undoubtedly wm be to unleash violent accusations that the UNC is so low and contemptible that la is even torturing patients In the hospitals. The U.S. Eighth Army said the Pusan outbreak; w«s touched off by a small group of agitators amojigr hospital orderlies. One Red POW was killed and 35 were injured in the 2'/ 2 -hour meleo. Sit down Slrlke Held Prisoner-inmates atld prisoner- doctors in the Koje hospital went on a sifdown strike Friday. They were removed from the hospital to a separate compound Monday without incident. "The Pusan riot Tuesday was only part of the overall Communist plnn," one United Nations officer said. He said these prisoners hart not been screened. Just Like World Scale "The Reds are carrying out this agitation in the prison compounds In Souih Korea, in the same way they operate on a world scale. Pirs't they attack in Korea, then Indochina, then somewhere ejse. It all follows the same pattern." He asked not to be named because the statement was his opinion and identifying him would put an official stamp on the story. Another high officer who is close to the prisoner problem had the utont yten-s: "It looks as if ttiere Is a embaruss and frustrate U£. "in addition they are themselves wtth a lot of men** faotured incident* for prop*0«t4at purposes." Guard Detail fecrcaaM den. Mark Clark. U.K. commander, has increased the guar4 detail by more than 5,000 men, b«k ttiere are 170,000 prisoners. According to the screening report, only 10,000 of these are a*- mitled Communists. But there has long been a suspicion within the U.N. Camman* that some Communist soldiers in Korea surrendered under instruo- t ions. The instructions were believed t^ have included orders to agitat wlhin the prison camps. H would not be difficult for a prisoner to profess hatred for communism, then turn agitator onc« he was put in a compound of anti- • Communists. Outside Control One thing is certain. The hardcore Communists inside the camps have outside cotitact. It may be radio, an underground chain which includes a few small boats or even a fifth column among Korean guards.
