VOL, XLVII—NO. 241 'It Stinks/ Reds Soy— UNPresents6-Point Plan for Releasing ^Prisoners of War MUNSAN, Korea (AP)—Allied truce negotiators presented a six-point plan today for reJeasng all prisoners of war and repatriating civilians in Korea. The plan starts out on a man-for-man basis and winds up as an all-for-all exchange, said Lt. Col. Howard S. Levie spokesman for the United Nations Command. The Communists took one look at .

E. Libby, Allied negotiator. Libby expressed hope North Korean Maj. Gen. Lee Sang Cho, Red negotiator, would change his mind after he studies the complex plan and understands it. Compromise Sought The proopsai is intended to pro- Tide a compromise between the U. N. man-for-man exchange of prisoners proposal and the Reds all- for-all demand, and at the same time provide for repatriation of all civilians who want to go home. The negotiators on the prisoner question meet again at 11 a.m. Thursday (8 p.m. Wednesday ESTj. So will a second subcommittee on supervising a Korean truce which ~ was tied up again on whether the ^Heds may rebuild their air fields during an armistice. Repatriation Is "Key" A U.N. Command communique »ald the key to its new "proposal is the principle of voluntary repatriation for all POW's and civilians." Lee said the plan contained things *we politically cannot agree to." He did not amplify. In Tokyo, Col. George Patrick Welch, official spokesman for Gen. Matthew B. Bidgway's headquarters, summed up the U. N. plan like this: "In principle, we are proposing •n exchange of everyone who wants to be exchanged." Anyone who did not want to be repatriated would not be sent back "against his will. The Internationa] Red Cross would act as a supervi- «ing agent. "Man-for-Man" Levie said the exchange of prisoners would start on a man-for- man basis to make sure the U.N. would get back it* full quota of prisoners of war. "When we have finished exchanging all prisoners of --war left. on either side," Lev! i' : sa'fd, '-Thin we ^will get to the point where we don't Bf oount heads." Here U how it would work: 1. Prisoners of war who. want to be exchanged would be on a one- Jor-one basis. The U.N. holds about 130,000 prisoners to 11,000 held by the Reds. But all South Koreans now in Communist armies would be reclassified as prisoners of war, •welling the Communist-held total. Civilians Are Included prisoners the exchange would b continued — one prisoner for on triated. Foreign Two Allied Planes Lost; Bad Weather Falls over Korea By WIU.IAM C.
