They gave no break down by nationality. The U. N. holds about 3,000 disabled Communist prisoners. The Reds have said they will turn back 12,763 captives, Including 3,313 Americans. The U. N. Command will hand over 69,000 North Koreans and about 5,000 Chinese. Persuasion Session The Allies also hold 7,800 North Koreans and 14,500 Chinese who have said they will not return to communism. These prisoners will be moved to the neutral zone noar Panmunjom while Communist agents try to persuade them to go home. Bryan, a husky general who once ed the 24th Division In Korea, told newsmen the first session of the a rear area in Korea got two. Th« new system of 16 months in Korea will send the rear area soldier home sooner but the soldier who would have been at the front lines will have to stay In Korea longer. Before, a soldier who spent all of his .service at the front could go home in nine months, or after he had 36 points. But most units spent at least part of their time behind the lines, so there were only handful of soldiers who went home before .serving 11 or 12 months in Korea. Points Count Army Forces Far East Headquarters said the new policy wouW not affect personnel who would be ready for rotation under the point system before Oct. 1. They will return home on schedule, under the old system. For soldiers who are in the Far £ast now—but will not rotate until .fter Oct. 1—the points they have Iready will still count. The Army /ill give them credit for l-36th of heir tour for each point they have, 'hus, a soldier in Korea who has 7 points prior to Oct. 1 will have ompleted three fourths of his tour, r the equivalent of 12 months. He 'ould have four more months to o. Soldiers will still be allowed to olunteer for another post in the 'ar East after completing 10 lonlhs service in Korea. They ould Have to complete a minimum 2 additional months in Japan or kinawa after their transfer. o armistice violations have come 3.

One platoon of the overselzed 300-man company—later known as the Snatch Platoon—was assigned to the rescue Itself. It was equipped with two tanks and several personnel carriers. The other platoons were to move into blocking position while the tank-led force raced into Panmun- jom, loaded the personnel into mored carriers and made Its way out, fighting if necessary. The rescue force, according to the plan, was equipped to handle up to 60 persons. Each time the delegations met at Panmunjom, the rescue force ;ook up its position a few miles below the truce village, ready to race In. The Marines maintained radio and telephone contact with Allied personnel inside the neutral circle and could have been called in a matter of minutes. The precautionary move itemmed in part from the fact that Chinese Red troops gradually had moved in almost entirely around he 1,000-yard circle except for a omparatively small corridor on he southern side through which the Allied convoy traveled. The Reds dug trenches and heavy fortifications almost entirely around the circle, some of them less than 50 yards from the outer rim.

Not being reformers, we offer our experience only to those who want it. There are no fees — "A. A." is an avocation. Each Member squares his debt of gratitude by helping other alcoholics to recover. In so doing, he maintains his own sobriety. Rapidly, growing, we number about 150,000 ex-drinkers who are now to be found in 3000 groups located in the United States, and 17 foreign countries. Our first member recovered in 1934. We feel that each man's religious views, if any, are his own affair. While every shade of opinion, is found among us we take no position, as a group, upon controversial questions. No Particular point of view is demanded of anyone. Our sole aim is to show sick alcoholics who want to get well how they may do so. We are really groups and not organizations. We have no constitutions, no bylaws, no officers, no dues or assessments. We are not chartered or profits or otherwise.
