*AGE TEN (ARK. 1 ) COUNTER NEWS MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1953 Text of Gl Prisoner's LettertoHisMother TOKYO W—This Is the text of the letter received today by Mrs Portia Howe from her son, Pfc. Itfclmnl It. Tenncson, one of the American I'OIVs who has refused . repatriation: "Dear mother: "Received your wire today and was very glad to get it. You say you would like to talk with me— well that would not be too hard to do. I know you believe me when I say that I would like to talk to you, however, there really isn't too much you could accomplish by Jt. , "I know that you want to take me home with you but I have made up my mind and I am not going. Loves Family "During my life I have witnessed both peace and war in the United States. I love peace, I love mankind, I love them enough to light for them—that is what I am doing right now—that Is why I am not going home. Don't misunderstand me. I still love my family, my people and my country, nnd whether you arc able to understand it now or not, "believe me when I, say that it is for them that I am fighting and it is impossible for me to live in the United States because J want to live as I wish. "Actually thought I don't believe the United States authorities will allow you to sneak to me, they are afraid. They have probably told you that I was forced, doped, brain washed or some other liorse manure that they use to slander and c'efilc people like myself who will stand up for his own rights and the rights of man. "What would they have to say if they did allow you to talk to mo and you were to see me that I was still your son if ever I left you with the exception perhaps that now I have a goal and a reason in life. "Also as soon as you rrnd this you had better go over to GHQ and take a loyalty oath or you are liable to be arraigned before the of Unnmcrican Activities (sic). It would be very nice for Eb (Mrs. Howe's husband. E. K. Howe) if he was tailed by Gestapo FBI every time he went out to deliver chickens. "Lot of Fun" "Perhaps you would like to know what we do here in the csunp in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Well, we have a lot of fun—we have outdoor sports, indoor sports, folk dancing, cultural concerts and now we have rice fields within tlie camp flooded over and as soon as they freeze up we will be having skating parties and tournaments. "We have two strands of barbed wire around the place, the first barbed wire I have seen since J left Camp Drake in Japan. On a clear day we can look over the valley and see tim camp on the other side—large guard towers, search light nnd so forth—looks more like a state penitentiary than a place for men to live while they decide what they are going to do with their life. "Oh, by the way, one of my friends who Is also staying back, Claude Bachelor, asked me to ask you if you would go and see his wife—her nnme is Klyoko Arakl and she lives at 412 Kitasenzoku- Clio, Tokyo, you can get there by taxi. He also asked that you ask her to come over here to see him or write him a letter. "Say hello to the family if you lire not allowed to come and see me.

NATO (Continued from Page l) money Congress will be willing to appropriate for European defense bills, "If we could feel sure the French would relax," said one Important American official. "If it drags on later than that, 1 don't know what Congress might do." Bidault was expected to ask that the North Atlantic Treaty be extended to 50 years from its present limit of 20 years.

BUDGET (Continued from Page 1) illation that the 1954 military budg. et may drop below 40 billion dollars, about two billion dollars less than for the current year. Even if there is such a reduction, Sen. Byrd (D-Va) said, the government is likely to wind up this year with a hefty deficit and he can't see any road open to tax reductions beyond those that will be made automatically Jan. I, These include the end of excess profits taxes on business and reduction of about 10 per cent in individual income taxes. Byrd has said he will oppose any increase in the Treasury's borrowing power beyond the present 275 billion dollar federal debt limit. The debt now is within half a billion dollars of the ceiling.
