NovJ 16 (fP\--Ked prisoners of the Allies in Korea are well-led, well- clothed, get an objective education and a well-rounded sports and recreation program. Most of them say tihey don't want to return to China or North Korea. John Benben of Chicago, chief ot the instructional branch, Civilian information and Education Section, at the prisoner of war camp, made these statements. He said: "The average prisoner ck«s not know why he was fighting. "Most of the Chinese would like to go to Formosa to join the Nationalist forces, which in most cases they originally belonged to. With tne exception of the few hard-core North Korean Communist officers, the average North Korean soldier would prefer to stay south of the 38th paralleL 160,604 Are Interned "That should be an indication of the treatment these men receive here.'" Benben ic on leave from Northwestern University to direct the educational program for prisoners on this islaad off the coast of South Korea. "We have 160,000 peopl* interned here including 18,000 Chinese and 40,000 North and South Korean civilians who are considered dangerous," said Col. Maurice J. Fitzgerald of Alexandria, Va., commander of the camp. "These prisoners are better off than in their own countries." declared Capt. Ryong C. Hahn of Hot Springs, Ark., who is an Ame · "an citizen of Korean descent, ha.in, who is assistant to^ Benben, was graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1934 and received his Ph. D. from Yale in 1936. Receive Good Diet Here the prisoners receive a diet of 2,800 calories per day based on 1.4 pounds of rice per man, plus additional Oriental and American foods. Each man in the compound wears American GI shoes, and the same clothing as American soldiers at the front--with the exception of the letters "P. W." Hahn said. The average day in the life of Communist prisoner finds him arising at 5:30 a. m. with breakfast at 6 a. m. He then starts his work detail or school class at 7 a. m. He lunches at 11:30 a. m. and back to work at 1 p. m. Work is finished at 5 p. m. and dinner at 5:30 p. m. The rest of the evening is his own until lights out at 10 p. m. The educational program offers prisoners all types of study from giammar to high school level, plus many vocational courses. All prisoners go to school as much as 30 hours a week. Teachers are selected from qualified prisoners of war, as well as paid Chinese instructors from Formosa and South Korea. Courses offered range from history to geometry, geometry. There also are large recreational facilities available including basketball, weight lifting, radio and riovies. Scan Qualification! ' Of 97,000 Employe* WASHINGTON. Nov. 1«, (ff)-The Treasury Department announced today it is reviewing the qualifications o some 97.000 attorneys and accountants now licensed to practice before its agencies. The purpose of the review. Treasury officials said, is to weed owt disbarred attorneys, criminals and other unfit persons, John L. Graves, chairman of the Treasury committee on practice, disclosed that the practice rolls have not been revised m 17 years. The last revision, he said, was in 1934, when the number of persons permitted to practice before tax courts, customs boards and similar agencies was reduced from 34,000 to 26,000. A House Ways and Means subcommittee headed by Rep. King vD-Calif) has criticized the Department severely for the state of its rolls. In a statement Oct. 31 the committee said it was "shocked to find self-confessed participants in tax shakedowns still admitted to practice, and to find convicted criminals who have long since been sentenced by State courts still in possession of cards permitting them to practice before the Bureau of Internal Revenue." E. H. Foley, acting Secretary of the Treasury (Secretary Snyder is in Rome attending a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Council), raid the revision is ''another step in Treasury's cooperation with the King committee." Current practice cards expire next March 31. 'eiping Radio Accuser U. N. Of Russia To Return Two ce-Breakers To U. S.

Suggests Safely Council Adopt Orphaned Family BALTIMORE Nov. 16--(£)--The National Safety Council should · adopt the eleven Mocre childrsr. C orphaned by an automoble ac- *dident at Pontiac. Mich., the executive director of Maryland Traffic Safety Commission said today.

Nov. 17, (#·--The Pelp- ng radio today branded as alse » report that United Na- ions war prisoners had been slain y the Communists and loosed the countercharge that "thousands and ens of thousands" of Red war prisoners "have been massacred." A Chinese language broadcast monitored here asserted the statement issued by the U. S. Eighth Army's legal officer saying nearly 6,000 U. N. war prisoners had been slain "was nothing but shameful' provocation." The broadcast then said that thousands and tens of thousands" of Chinese and North Korean Communist soldiers "who fell into the hands ot the United Nations forces have been massacred," The Allies maintain that all Communist prisoners have been treated well in conformity with the Geneva convention for the care of prisoners of war. The Chinese Communists do not subscribe to the Geneva convention. The Peiping broadcast said the statement by Col. James M. Hanley, Eighth Army Judge Advocate General, had no basis in fact. "The Communist side," Peiping said, "in accordance with the spirit of humanity, is treating the prisoners of war well despite difficult conditions. "Fearing that the true facts might be reported, the United Na- lions Command headquarters since last February has prohibited correspondents from questioning or interviewing released prisoners." It was the first comment from Pieping on Hanley's statement Wednesday, a statement that caused world-wide repercussions. S. S.

THE TEN CQMfttAN-DRWENTS - WVLIJAM E. GMLHOY, ». ». *Soci«l justice, purity, and honor, a competent Biblical scholar Un Hastiag's Bible Dictionary) has set down as the ideal element* of the Jewish law. He credits Moses wtoh propounding the laws and regards later developments as having come in succeeding times of prophetic fervor and national zeul. The Te Commandments are. of course, the most familiar of the laws. One cannot read far in the dictionaries and commentaries on the Bible without realising the nature and extent of Hie Commandments and the whole elaborate law and ritual, of which they are a part. The Commandments, with reference to their wider Mosaic and Jewish environment of law and ritual, have widely commended themse'ves to Wie world as a moral code, basically related to the social justice, purity, and honor which it was the noblest achievement of Judaism to seek and uphold as the true life for man and society. The Ten Commandments, even when not obeyed by the wayward, or even where their religious recognition of the one God has not been acknowledged, have been widely accepted as a moral code and variously established i« the legal codes of many lands. Despite all the moral laxity of much of modern life, the broken homes, the sexual looseness and adulteries, the cheapening of human life, the stealing in practice and in spirit, either illegally or within the exact letter of the law. it is still true that the strength and welfare of a people depends upon the reality with which the essence of the Ten Commandments is ingrained in the life and practice of the community. Integrity of family life, honor of parents, devotion to children, regard for the liberties and rights of others--these are the elements upon which soc4al {strength nnd welfare depend: and tthe extent to whkh they we denied and disregarded ' indicates Wie depths of weakness to which many commuii- tti*« have fuNen, and the acuteness of the problwnK confronting society us a whole. ' Yet there is .something more, and Mftlu'r, than the Commandments. John 1:17 states, "The law wtis given by Moses, but greet* and truth came by Jesus Christ." This does not mean that Josus originated grace and t r u t h , but thai He, as He Himself said, fulfilled what was inherent in the law. For the New Testament everywhere represents the fulfillment of love-"Thou shall" instead of only "Thou shall not." The Ten Commandments would establish correctness of life. The law of love is a dynamic. Quickening fulness of 11 Ce in the growth of grace and knowledge. HUNTERS TAKK"NOTICK WESTMORELAND, N. J., Nov. 16, i/P--L.
