So enraged were the Communists over the freeing of war prisoners who had been held in neutral custody that tlie Allies had to lake into account the possibility that they might renew the war. But the best guess at the moment was that there would be no fighting. No 'Taps' Are Played For Americans TOKVO, Jan, Z'l —(IP!— "Taps" were not. played Friday illicit for any of IKe '21' Americans < who prefer to upend their new "life" with the Communists. The only requiem was the whispered prayers of mothers and the, anguished lament of one, of (ho piircnl.s, Mrs. 1'orlia Howe of Alilen, Minn., who cried: "Where «])«! I full? Where did I full?" Secret dcclsinnH that, led the Americans, most of them just "boys" in their unrly twenties, into Asiatic communism never will be known. "Some will be happy," Cpl. Oliiudo •!. Bntchelor of Hermit, Tex., their erstwhllr leader who now is in Tokyo, said. "They all ' believe In It to a certiiin extent." American-officials have mnde it clear that renewal of the ' fighting would be on a larger scale than before. Hence, it was believed that with the .prisoners free, th n way'would be cleared to get on with the talks- about Korea's .future ,— tlie .preliminary negotiations,for the peace conferencfi for which the armistice provided. There were two obstacles in the way: 1; The UN demand that tlic Communists lake back .their'-charge that the United 'States connived with South Korea in the mass break-out o£ anti-Red prisoners last summer. 2. The Communist demand that Soviet Russia' be admitted to the peace conference as a "neutral." The UN is willing to have Russia admitted as a belligerent. With the freeing of prisoners, a strong propaganda point was ^removed from future peace conference debates. Nothing can be now to gel the prisoners back So now, when the tw» sides 'ta about arrangements for the political — or peace — conference, observers believe more'attention will be paid to Uir- main poinls, and that progress may be easier. It is believed here thnt the talks on "arranging for a conference" may last a long time. As long as they do, the armed truce will continue. UN commander in chief Gen. John E. Hull believes there is a possibility that such an nrmed truce could continue in a divided Korea almost, indefinitely, as has been the case in divided Germany, 2-Headed Baby 'Sideshow' Curious Ruin Hope For Normal Life PETERSBURG.
