>K TWELVE OulMU.ii.ri 'I, i'JB* Some Americans Shun Freedom fir Red Rule (Continued from Page U — most of them "Instigating •g«lMt the peace." IM s«ld one enlisted man at Froktong had already been sentenced to a year and was being held back from the prisoner exchange. Cpl. Ulysses G. Baugh, 23, of Little Rock, Ark., told of a Chinese company commander who "threatened to cut my head off" if he didn't write an article lor Communist propagandists. Baugh said he was branded a "reactionary" because "I told him I could not write them." "They said I was sabotaging their teaching. They had me stand at attention in the" cold." Baugh, who spent 33 months in Red captivity, said the propaganda continued week after week. "It would almost drive you erazy," he said . FriRhlened A liberated South Korean said many of his countrymen tad been frightened into staying in the North—sometimes even as they were within short miles of freedom. He said the Reds told South Koreans PO\Vs they would be shot by KOK troops If they returned to their homes. The South Korean, Pfc. Park Young Ho, 27, said the Red propaganda continued even as the KOK prisoners were being moved to Kaesong for repatriation. Five or six South Koreans, he said, refused repatriation at the last min- .ute. An American officer a t the nearby South Korean processing center Bald only 244 KOKs were delivered today, although the Communists nad promised to return 250. Another American who was held at the Pyoktong camp said "close to 2,000" Americans, British and other 0. N. troops were buried in shallow graves during the winter and spring of 1951. "There are no markers at all." Sgl. I. C. Junior E. Dunlap, 24, of McCorkle, W. Va., said. "We buried them on the North Korean side of the Yalu River on a hill. ' "Some we buried at the edge of the water because we were too weak to carry them up the hill. We only got some of them halfway covered. The ground was frozen, and we were too weak to dig. We laid them up against an embankment arid scraped dirt and Btones over them." Dunlap said that of 3,000 Allied soldiers at Pyoktong in late ,lim- uary, 1951, only 1,400 were still alive in mid-summer. Dunlap, a tank commander, was captured in November, 1950. Poor lUedlcfne Pfc. William Skipper of Gnlli- X'ants Ferry. S. C. estimated that 1,000 men died at Pyoktong frr/n Jnuary, 1951. until the camp broke up Aug. I, 1953. "Most of them died from dysentery" he said. "The Communists tried to treat It but their medicine was no good. You'd got shed of it and then you'd get it right back after you'd eat the food." , An Indifina corporal, taken prisoner when he was only 17. estimated nt least 1,00(1 Alumc:;ins Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton Open High Low Close Oct 3372 3374 3368 3387 Dec 3389 3389 3365 3385 Mar 3410 3410 3403 340S May 3413 341S 3403 3403 New Orleans Cotton Oct 3367 3370 3364 3364 Dec 3386 3386 3381 3381 Mnr 3408 3408 3400 3390 May 3408 3408 3400 Chicago Corn Sep 1.46>/j 1.44'/4 Dec 1.3T/J 1.36% Chicago Wheat Sep 1.94% 1.90% Dec 2.01 ft 1.96% Chicago Soybeans Sep 2,56'/2 2.53 1 /:!
