FRIDAY, SEPT. 11, 1953 BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Red Source Says Allied PWs Held Newsman Admits Airmen Still In Captivity (Continued from Page 1) about Sept. 17. About 1.000 anti-Red North Koreans moved into the buffer area Thursday, and the repatriation commisson,. said Friday nine of them asked to go home to North Korea. A commission spokesman said disposition of the nine has not been decided, but they have been plnee'd In a separate compound on their own request. . The .repatriation commission will have custody of the reluctant prisoners for 90 days beginning about Sept. 25. During that time representatives of their homelands will try to persuade the prisoners to return home. If they still refuse, their fate will be up to the Korean political conference, and if it fails to settle the problem in 30 days, they will be freed as civilians. Meanwhile, the Allied Command waited for the Reds to give an official accounting of 944 Americans and 2,560 other Allied troops once known to be prisoners who vanished behind a Red wall of silence. They were never released or listed as dead. Indications were that the Reds probably would reject the Allied demand, made Wednesday in a meeting of the Joint Military Armi slice Commission, which enforces the truce. . In Washington, the U.S. govern ment advised relatives of the miss ing Americans not to hold "too much hope" for .their survival. I said the men may have died in "death marches" or in the bleak prison camps of North Korea. The Pentagon began releasing the names Thursday. Earlier, the Red Peiping radio had attacked the list as "faked' and accused the U.N. Command of trying to draw world attention from what it termed allied refusal to let thousands of Red war prisoners go home.
