THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1953 BLTTHEVTLLE (AHK.V COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEK Freed Korean POW, |. With Ail Fingers Gone, Tells of Red Torture By BILL SIIINN FREEDOM VILLAGE, Korea I* A South Korean sergeant who lost all 10 Singers told a shocking Ktovy today of torture in Korean Communist prison camps. ; '£>M. Sgt. Kim Ka Sung, 25, was : among the sick and wounded Allied prisoners exchanged this week at Panmunjom. He was captured by Hie North Koreans in 1950 while serving with the Republic of Korea Capitol Division. He said he was taken by three Reds to a lonely village, handed a shovel and ordered to dig his own grave. But he said he clubbed his captors while they were lighting cigarettes, seized a burp gun and killed them. He was recaptured while wandering on a mountain because... "I was very tired and fell asleep." Kim said he was taken to the Communist prison at Hoenyung in December. 1950, and tortured for two weeks. He said the. Communists forced him to drink water in excessive amounts and poured hot pepper powder into his nose and mouth. He was suspended from the prison ceiling with his hands and legs tied behind him, he said. The Reds also beat him with wire, rope and other things, he said. He refused to give his captors his rank and unit. "I was the only prisoner to be tortured among the 58 South Korean prisoners held in the camp at Hoenyung," he said. He said that after his arms had been bound for a long time, the circulation was bad and doctors told him his fingers \vould have to be amputated. "I doubted that," he said, "but there wasn't much else I could do." He said the fingers on his right hand were amputated by a saw. He was not given anything to dull the pain. Three days later, they cut off the knife. He was given no treatment, fingers of his left hand with he said, and the only cure wtas putting his butchered hands out of the window so the sun woul heal them. 300 1939 1940 1945 1950 1952 '5: BITUMINOUS COAL PILE SHRINKS-The Korean war "peace feelers" have caused many to rejoice, but a great number of bituminous coal miners may lose their jobs should a truce be declared. Some coal-using industries have stopped buying and are digging into Ihsil reserves in anticipation of E production cutback. This would cause layoffs in the mines if and when the war ends. Above Newschart shows production in the bituminous coal industry from 1939 to the present. High point was 1947, when over 630 million tons were mined. Experts feel that production may drop below 400 million tons during 1953, the lowest DOint since 1939. Southeast Asia Cities Offer ^Plenty of Fun for Young Men By JOHN K. MACBETH HONG KONG f/R—No young man rf any nationality has any excuse for being lonely any night in almost any city in Southeast Asia. All the big towns In this area seem to have one thing in common 1 , huge dance pavilions. And all the dance pavilions seem to have lots of good things in common; such as modern music and friendly" females. After observing, with habitual restraint and dignity, the night life in Manila. Singapore, Rangoon, Bangkok, Jakarta, Saigon, Hanoi and Hong Kong, researchers give this account of their findings: There is little to choose between the dance halls of the several points visited. But there is much to choose from in each of them. Take, for instance, the taxi girls. They're almost all uniformly tiny. • They're almost uniformly pretty and -their shapes vary but lit Lie. They almost all cost the same to dance with. And few of thpiri have much to say—except the Chinese. Most Afffiresslve They are the best dancers, the fastest talkers and the deafest ^Hjvatenors. And they're the most regressive. A fellow can be sitting by himself, thinking politics perhaps, minding his own business. Then along comes Ting Ling Lu, sits down, calls the waiter, orders the most expensive drink in the house, grabs the poor boy's hand and smiles invitingly: "Come on, keed, dance me!" He who hesitates is lost. The Chinese taxi girls learned this one a long time ago and, if their prey shows any sign of balking, he's on the dance floor in a split second. Three minutes Inter, he's digging in his pocket for the local equivalent of a dime. But the other Southeast Asian girls nre not exactly slow pokes. They learn fast. One Viet namese girl reportedly started off like this the other night; irj French:/ "I have much thirst. I have much hunger. I like you. Dance me!" Two hours and about $15 later, she paid this little farewell tribute to her crestfallen partner: "I like you. I eat well. I drink well. I tired now. Good night now." Some of the area's taxi girls are, naturally, a little on the rough side. But most are well groomed, soft spoken, outwardly coy, and as morally correct as their little chum who works behind a counter or .in a bank. A successful taxi girl can earn as much as $75 U. S. a week. Out here, that's good money. Wrong Diagnosis On Ike's illness WASHINGTON </P} — The White House said yesterday President Eisenhower's illness last week resulted merely from eating something that disagreed with him - no case of food poisoning was involved.

Cot Keeper In Dilemma Over Money KANSAS CITY «PI— A Memphis woman's bequest of $300 to care for stray cats left a Kansas City youth in a dilemma today. He's strictly out of the cat business. When Miss Ella C. Branum lived here she noticed Robert E. Brice's interest in animals. He worked in a pet shop and often gave Miss Branum advice on how to care for hers. When Miss Branum died In Memphis recently she left bequests to humane organizations and $300 to Brice, now a high school senior. Bobby's dilemma, in his own words : "My hobby is collecting birds.
