TAGS EIGHT BLTTHEYHXE. (ARK.) OOVMB8 MBWS AII OM Woodraw 'Self-Determination' Enters Truce Talks By BTATK POLOWETMSY TOKYO (AP>—The old Woodrow Wilson itsat of "self-determination," which played such an important part In World Wnr I peace treaties, emerged today ru a crucial point In Korean armistice talks. It was In a new Allied proposal for releasing and swapping prisoners of _WBr and civilians with the communists. Self-determination may cause a« much trouble now as It did in the days after World Wnr I when the right of nations to determine their own destinies was a burning issue. Here In a nutshell, is what the Allies told the Communists: We agree to release nil prisoners. But we will give you back only those prisoners who want to go back, We demand that lha South Koreans you forced into your army be given the right to say whether they want to stay with you during an nrmlstlce. "In addition, we leave )t up to displaced persons to say for themselves where they want to be during an armistice." The official United Nations communique srxid the key to the proposal "is the principle of voluntary repatriation for all POWS and civilians." How will the Communists react? The U. N. delegate—Rear Admiral R. E. Ubby— told new.imen the Red sub-delegation "gave a preliminary Impression of It that may be summed up: 'It stinks.'" The Communists want all Uielr prisoners back—no questions asked. In effect they say that anyone who was captured wearing a North Korean or Chinese uniform should be returned to the Communist Bide—even if the soldier originally was » South Korean deserlcr, a South Korean POW who was forced Into the Red army, or a South Korean civilian forced to become s Communist soldier. It Is believed here that many Communist captives don't want to be returned to the Red side— and that Is what the Red leaders are afraid of. They probably fear that the Allies could make propaganda of the fact that great numbers of their . soldiers choose to remain In South Korea.
