SEOUL (AP) — Many of the 27,000 anti - Communist North Korea prisoners who escaped from Allied stockades would gladly return now if assured there would be no reprisals, an official source said today. Others reportedly wouid return A spokesman who cannot be named said the prisoners who were promised food, clothing and help by the South Korean government are finding it hard to live and work in the wrecked South Korean economy. Some have been enlisted in the ROK Army and thousands appear to be headed for Army duty, even against their will. nag-decorated trucks carried several hundred anti-Communist former war prisoners to the South Korean Army replacement depot for the third straight day today. The Defense Ministry refused to make any statement concerning £he former prisoners and the total number that have gone into the Army was not revealed. Few If any of the escaped prisoners are expected to return to U. N. prison camps. South Korean officials have said [ ba. freely that the U. N. Command never will get back the prisoners whose release has stymied armistice in the Korean War. Damages After Two-Car Wreck A two-car collision at Fifth anc Chickasawba Streets this morning resulted in damage to vehicles driven by B. B. Goodmaji of Steele and D. C. Pillow of Blytheville, Rt. 2. Mr. Pillow, who was traveling north on Fifth Street, Was knocked unconscious by the impact, but received no injuries, officers Bert Ross and J. R. Gunter reported. The cars collided at the center of the intersection. Mr. Goodman was traveling east on And most officials agree that even prisoners who want to retu/n would not do so unless assured by the South Korean government that no reprisals will be taken after their eventual legal release. Sources in the Korean underground said only a direct order from Rh«e vigorously enforced by ROK police could force some groups of the former POWs back to prison. No Employment So far as is known, little or no employment has been given to North Koreans taking refuge in the cities. They seem to be awaiting transfer to an outlying district for work on farms or a call from the service. The only attempts by the U. N. Command to retrieve the North Koreans has been in radio broadcasts appealing for voluntary surrender to prison camp authorities. Results have been poor. Fewer than 1,000 North Koreans have bedn re-taken, and most of these came back within the first 12 hours of their exchange. All of the escaped prisoners have new identification cards, making it possible for them to show they are bonaflde citizens of South Korea. American Intelligence agents arc believed to have located many oi the escaped North Koreans. But official sources sny it is unlikely an attempt will be made to re- force if necessary. South Korean orficials said after the mass break-outs June 18, 19 and 20 that volunteer North Koreans would be Welcomed into the growing South Korean army. Clubs Tn Prison Anti-Communist clubs organized inside prison cajnps exacted pledges from members to join the ROK army and fight the Communists after their release. Apparently , me South Korean Army will accept enlistments ns soon as training facilities accommodate new recruits. can And since the prisoners now are citizens of South Korea, those who do not enlist will be subject to the draft. No Korean official has taken the responsibility of predicting when most of the escaped prisoners will be inducted into the army. "It all depends on when facil- ties will be available," one said, 'Of course, this all is on a volunteer basis." Anti-Communist THE FENCE IS LOADED—Communists take every measure to prevent anyone escaping from the Iron Curtain. For instance, here is the Iron Curtnin in the form of a barbed wire on the Austro- Hungarian border. Behind the fence are an explosive mine and an electric flash mine to discourage fugitives.

The cause or It all was a story in yesterday's Detroit News that word had gone out around the Pentagon (Defense Department headquarters) to shun the Detroit area on future defense contracts because of "labor union abuses." Kyes, incidentally, is a former ieneral Motors vice-president, and Defense Secretary Charles Wilson, a former GM president, GM holds the largest bunch of defense orders moneywise, of any company In the nation. And GM traditionally has set the "liberal pace" in union contracts.

His mind still is quick, active, keen. He has a good gv»sp of world problems. American diplomats who have pleaded, cajoled and fought with him on truce problems can testify that he is not subject to blandishment, not swayed by persuasion. He is a powerful man in many ways, more so than many people think. One day last week five of j the biggest men in the Far East went to his home, almost with hat in hand. They were Qeri. Mark W. Clark, United Nations commander in the Far East, Gen. Maxwell D. Tayor, Eighth Army commander in iorea, U. S. Presidential Envoy Walter Robertson, U. S. Ambassador to Korea Ellis o. Briggs and former u. S. Ambassador to Japan Robert Murphy. Ask Favor They wanted a favor—a truce in Corea. So far they haven't got it. There are many things American that Rhee likes—especially television and Generals Douglas MacArthur and James A. Van Fleet. Rhee seizes every chance to appear on television as a means of getting over his own plans in America. It is doubtful if he ever has seen a television program. There are no TV stations in Korea. But Rhee wants a set just the same. MacArthur wanted to drive to the Yalu River, which is what I Rhee wants and Van Fleet gave him the 16 well trained divisions that now give him a feeling of power and independence from the United Nations Command. In a way. Van Fleet, in being helpful to the South Koreans, may have unintentionally created a monster —a monster army that may some day strike at U. N. forces if Rhee wills. Old Man But Rhee is an old man. If he is to see fulfillment of his dream of a unified, independent Korea, it must be brought about quickly. Perhaps if he were a younger man he might be willing to move Jower in what the world would consider » more democratic way. He doesn't havo the time. Like a runner near the end of a long gruelling race, If he «lows now he loses his chance lor a personal victory after more than 50 years of sweat, agony, and bitter disappointments. The greatest disappointment of all has been what he considers his abandonment by the United Nations at a time when he considers military victory still possible in renewal of an all out war against the Communists, No Faith in Truce He has no iaith in a post armistice political conference, little faith in the success of a "peaceful unification" of his beloved land. He has fought against an armistice on the present battle line since the talks began nearly two years ago. He passionately believes that there is only one justifiable ceasefire line—on the Yalu River boundary between North Korea and Manchuria. Rhee still smiles readily—a full, open smile. His intimates say he still is full of quiet humor. Affable at his regular weekly sessions with his Cabinet, he listens calmly and quietly as his ministers express their views—perhaps because they are usually tailored to what they believe to be his views.
