N, Command says the Reds incorporated In the North Korean Army. They "<jo not exist," said North , demand that the Allies supply a list Korean Maj. Gen. L« Sang Cho. j of 44.000 prisoners not named in the original u.N. list. The Allies said again they had been reclassified as civilians. When the Reds persisted the U.H. Corn- He called it an Allied fabrication, an "attempt to block our progress by creating another hindrance." Concede 'Some' The Reds concede some South Koreans arc in the Communist Army, bul conlend they are volunteers and that many deserted the Soulh Korean Army. "They do exist and have always existed," Libby snapped back. And they "must be returned to our side" when prisoners of war arc exchanged. At Ihis point Libby said: "Apparently we are back where we were on Dec. 18." Negotiators exchanged lists of prisoners of war on that .late. Kcils Kepeaf Demand- Ill another truce tent Red staff officers repeated their "firm and unshakable", demand that Soviet Russia help supervise a-truce. u.N.. officers repeated their "irrevocable" stiuut that Soviet Russia was not acceptable. •; They have been deadlocked like that for weeks. Communist generals negotiating the prisoner exchange "were very well behaved," Libby said, in contrast lo their shouted accusations of Monday. But in a new charge Lee said J/ the U.N. Command holds any prisoners who don't want to be returned they have been Intimidated at bayonet point. Lee Attacked Stand Lee wsis attacking the Allied stand lhat no prisoners be sent back unless they want to go. and the U.N. reclassification of 44.000 prisoners as civilian internees. "You tried to give us (he Impression," the Red general said, "that among the prisoners of war there are persons who dirt not want to come back to our side. If there exists any such fact, it Is a fact which is fabricated under your bayonets and intimidation." Point Repeated Three times Lee repeated the Communists would not accept, the Allied principle of voluntary repatriation—key stumbling block on prisoner exchange. During a 43- minute statement he demanded: "For what reason do you ask them to make their political choice?" The Reds recently revived an old Osceola Firm Is Incorporated mam! revived its own demand that the Communists account lor r.OfJOO South Korean soldiers it said the Reds captured but didn't report. The Reds insisted they were released at the front.
