PAGE TWO BLYTHEYILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! MONDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1964 U.S. Seeks Plan To Free Prisoners WASHINGTON (AP) •— Communist China's defiant refusal to free 13 Americans jailed as spies confronted the United States government today with the perplexing problem of how to make the Reds change their minds. Wiii the British serving as intermediaries, the Chinese Communists yesterday rejected an American note protesting the Imprisonment of 11 captured airmen and 2 •0 S Army civilian employes on spy charges. The State Department called the charges "baseless." But .the British government, reporting the Chinese turned down the U S note as "unacceptable, said the Reds insisted the evidence against the 13 Americans was incontestable. The British acted as go-betweens because this country does not recognize the Red Chinese regime and maintains no direct diplomatic cintact with Peiping. Next Move Open The U S. government's next move remained an open question as state department odlcials reported "all appropriate measures are being considered."

While some State-side politicians talked about sending American troops to Indo-China, the men on the spot here realized that by the time GIs were unloaded the issue would have been decided. They carefully developed a bomb- Ing pattern to ring Dein Bien Phu with baby A-bombs, make the surrounding hills so radioactive a curtain would protect General de- Casterles. They were so convinced of their ability to draw a circle around Dicn Blen Phu without endangering the defenders that one leading Air Force o(ficer offered to parachute before the raid a« an "observer." Mr. Elsenhower said: ".No!" One of me reason! offered by the President was that he feared a popular reaction against the use of any kind of an A-bomb—particularly in Japan, which was the recipient of the first two A-bombs dropped in history. Since the President made the above point, Americans out here concerned with freedom's future in Asia have been urging the Pentagon to think up and advertise a new name for the baby A-bomb. "They aren't A-bombs in the Hiroshima sense." an Air Force officer told me, "no more than a 1000-pound blockbuster is a firecracker, although all explosive! grew up from the Chinese firecracker." The second time a baby atomic attack was suggested was when the Reds began to pound Quemoy, Formosa's offshore Island, with artillery around the clock. The advocates of radioactiv* muscle put their case this way: "Here is further proof Red China will settle for nothing but all Asia. ''There aren't enough American boys to make a ground on Red. China; our allies aren't ready. Furthermore, traditional bombing would be costly and long ranged. "Ours Is a plan—via baby A- bombs—to knock out Red Chines* war potential in a matter of days without causing great numbers of civilian casualties." Again Eisenhower said: "No!"— although the President was thiw opposing a very largt number of his military advisers. But the A-bombs are still conveniently stored, the planes are available, and the heartland of Red China is maped down to the last traffic sign.
