Dunn of Rome, N.Y., ridiculed the statements in the cable. He referred to them as "those statements of Ma- l*|iRdding that "they are just as rid~ilous as those he has bcon making every day in the U.N."

Dunham, apparently the former Bcnnington, Vt., man "quoted"'two weeks ago as telling a London Daily Worker correspondent: "The Americans know they are licked and ere just trying to smash up- and kill people. I feel pretty ashamed of my people, and seeing what they have done, we have been treated better than we deserve." The major's brother, J. Elmer Dunham of Hampton Manor, near Albiny, N.Y., asserted his, brother was too loyal to say "anything like that" even under torture. No Home Town* j Malik's list did not give the home towns of the officers named.
