Siiiilh Kiirwi Tin- men who' look Sister Sye Raymumlc I'niin her convent, in a black sedan never identified themselves. Nul even after three shifts of them inter- rogated her in a small windowless room fur 17 straight hours and nrdered her to sign a confession of anti-government activity' lliat could be punishable by death. But though they never told her whir they were, Sister Sye, a ,'iS-year-old Korean Rinnan Catholic linn, knew they were members of the Korean Central inlellinenco Agency. Fin- she was licit! in n squat, concrete Iwiilding known to almost every Korean as the name of the hillside on which Ihe intelli Heuce agency's headquarters were originally situated. The building is the agency's interrogation center. Trials Sister Sye is one nf dozens, possibly hundreds, nf South Koreans who have been taken from their homes or offices in recent weeks by the secret police for inter- rogation as part of President Park Cluing lice's effort to repress all opposition to his rule. The most dramatic part of Park's crack- down has been a series of closed trials before military courts in which Koreans in- cluding Protestant opposition politicians and the nation's best- known young poet. Kim Chi Ha have been convicted of subversion. A respccti-d 77-year- old former president of South Korea. Vim Pn Sun. is on trial. But to add to the terror and impact of the the government regularly detains, for periods of a day or more, seemingly almost anyone it is suspicions of.

Daniel Chi Hak Sonn, an outspoken Catholic who is under indictment for subver- sion. Both the bishop and his aitlorney. hn Kuaug Kyn. are still liei'ig dctainied. The intelligence agency's harassment nf suspected political opponents takes oilier forms also. The secret police riintincly sla- lions agents in Protestant and Catholic churches to check on the content of sermons. An American Catholic priesl complained recently lltal Wn auenN INI! nnly lowed him after mass, lint had seh es into his Sister Sye's experience illustrated the usual process of detention mid iiiieslioning. though she was luckier than some because she was not physically tortured ami was re- leased after one day. But CIA agents told her she may lie called before a conrl-marlial soon to stand trial. An account of what happened to her has been put together from sources familiar with her case. Sister Sye herself, before she was permitted to leave the interrogation building, was forced to sign a document saying: "If 1 tell anyone about what happened here. I will certainly be punished." Her trouble began last month when she typed a defiantly worded statement denounc- ing the government's repressive rule that had been written by Bishop Daniel Chi Hak Sunn, who is under indictment for subver- sion. According to friends. Sister Sye is not a regular secretary, lint she was entrusted with the secret task because she is intelligent anil composed. A few hours after Bishrp Chi read the statement to a group of newsmen and Cathol- ic supporters, (lie Korean intelligence agents came to Sister Sye's convent to pick her up. Threatening Interrogation According to the account that has been pieced together, she was taken with no ex- planation I HI of her interrogators repeatedly asked her. in loud, often threatening tones, if she had typed the bishop's statement. To protect him. Sister Sye said she did not know, a lie that was In weigh on her conscience. So the agents reportedly began to mock her. "Why do yon live without a man'.' Why don't you Then as the night wore on and she became sleepy, a new team of agents warned her. "If yon weren't a nun and a woman, we would have beaten yon by now." Finally, the policeman took her to see Bishop Chi, who. it turned out. was being interrogated almost next door in room His face was Unshed, Sister Sye is said to recall, ami an empty tray sal on a table in front of him. The .bishop advised Sister Sye In admit that she had typed his statement and when she agreed she was returned to her own room. That was the last time any outsider has seen Chi. According to Catholic sources, he is believed to have been transferred to a remote hospital in par! nf the country under guard of Hie intelligence agency.

Two years ago he had a heart attack, but he recovered and is now enjoying excellent health. Walter plays tennis at least three times every week, so he's not exactly an invalid, right? However, when it comes lo love-making, I am told not to "bother him" because he doesn't want lo lake any chances on damaging his heart. Before his coronary, he wasn't the world's greatest lover, but now has an excuse. (Or has Please ask one of your med- ical consultants and lei me know. Don't advise me to ask Walter's doctor because he is also Walter's tennis buddy. Thanks. MISSING SOMETHING DEAR MISSING: I consult- ed Dr. Donald B. Efflcr, the famous Cleveland clinic heart surgeon, who is cooler than Dcnton Coolcy and hotter than Michael DcBakcy. His re- sponse: "II Walter, age 52, is enjoying regular tennis, but will not take care of his home- work, three possibilities come to mind: (A) Walter's got something going on the out- side; (B) Walter's wife has lost something that must have looked good to him a number of years ago or, (C) Walter Is one of those rare men who los- es interest in sex at 52. In any event, judging from his wife's letter, Walter's past heart attack is most likely a phony excuse. "Very few coronary patients are advised against sexual activity at home. This simple observation, made long ago, gave rise to the aphorism, There's nothing dangerous about sex, it's the chasing alt- er it that can kill you1." DEAR ABBY: Tell that small-town bartender that he doesn't have lo lie. If someone phones the bar and asks if Joe Blow is there, all he has to do is page Joe Blow by calling his name loudly. If Joe Blow doesn't want to answer the page, it's his busi- ness. That way the bartender isn't in the middle.
