monument to the bravefighting men who gave their lives bat tling against superior forces Across Manila Bay from Bataan is Corregidor a rocky fortress that also stood and fell before the Japanese The

who himself was captured by the Japanese recounted 20 years later We were told to march in six columns At every turn of the eye was a Japanese soldier with his bayonet drawn up menacingly and zealously guard ingus It was horrible We marched day and night without food without water We would rest only when the Japanese changed guards in the towns along the route Every six or seven steps a prisoner would stumble face first to the ground either too sick too exhausted or too hungry and thirsty to continue walking We would leave them crumpled on the ground The Japanese guards would kick and bayonet the men who stumbled They did the same for those who attempted to help their companions to their feet Carrio was among the few who escaped before reaching the Capas prison camps On the

id States and Britain gave the Soviet Union an apparently final warning Tuesday that unless there is agreement on an enforceable nuclear test ban the new US test leries scheduled to start late this month will have to go forward In a joint statement released at he White House the two govern ments called on the Soviets to re consider their position on the in spection issue and to accept the principle of international verifica tion If they will do this the state ment said there is still time to reach agreement The declaration then continued But if there is no change in the present Soviet position the gov ernments of United States and the United Kingdom must conclude that their efforts to obtain a work able treaty to ban nuclear tests are not now successful and the test series scheduled for the latter part of this month will have to go forward f and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan chose the joint statement tech nique for stating their position in preference to forwarding another direct appeal to Soviet Premier Khrushchev Some US officials said the time is considered too late for the personal communica tion method The statement was not present ed as a KennedyMacmillan dec laration but as one from the two governments The 600word statement re viewed the latest found of US British negotiations with Russia on a treaty to ban further testing of nuclear weapons The negotiations began at Gene va a month ago when Secretary of State Dean Rusk met Soviet For eign Minister Andrei A Gromyko the opening of the 17nation disarmament conference A few days before the confer ence opened Kennedy had an nounced that unless a dependable san on testing could be negotiated before late April the United States would begin conducting tests in he atmosphere over the central Pacific Tuesdays declaration said that well as other Soviet consistently rejected theprinciple of international in spection as a means for policing a test ban In the view of the West ern powers a treaty without ade quate verification to guarantee against cheating would be unde pendable Therefore the state mentargued the whole issue turns on Russias rejection of the principle of objective international verification The declaration obviously was designed to place upon the Soviet government the responsibility for the resumption of the nuclear arms development race Plenty of
