"Conditions were so horrible and n h u m a n e that it is not possible to describe them," he said in a voice choked with emotion. "Every day in Muehlbcrg prisoners died like flies. They carried them out every morning and bur- ed them in mass graves. Some days there were 50 dead, some days 60,-some days 70. "The prisoners were starving and they shouted in agony for bread." He said he spent all his captivity after Dresden in solitary'con- finement. "I think they arrested me be- cause'they thought I was an American spy and because of the huge American flag I flew from the roof of my home in Dresden. The flag could be seen all over Dresden and Germans who feared the Russians and American soldiers released from Nazi prisoner of war camps c a m e to the home for help. One day a Russian major visited me and told me to take the flag down. 1 refused and a few days later I was arrested along with John." · His wife and George went to Berlin after his arrest, he said. George then returned to the U. S., entered the Army and served in the Air Force in Germany. (FM On Air 3 p.m. to 10:15 p.m.) Mr Box Top . .
