The State Department's statement today analyzed the Communist proposal and gave Its support to Clark's aciion. The Communist truce negotiators on Oct. 16 proposed thai war prisoners be brought to a demilitarized zone to be delivered to the other side. After this exchange, joinl Red Cross (cams would explain to the returned prisoners Ihat they should BO home and take no further part in hostilities. "This scheme Is nothing but forced repatriation, with the Joint teams standing by as helpless witnesses/' the department said. "The Communists, it was noted, already have agreed for a prisoner exchange in a demilitarized zone. The Oct. 16 proposal, the department said, represents a "further regression" by apparently requiring the surrender to the Communists of even those prisoners whose homes are in the Republic of Korea.
