The general has been commander of the Viking Division since reorganization of the Nat- strange and piquant experience. For among them were thousands who had stormed down that very same road before, in 1950 and 1951. Then they had swept across She Imjin River ice, over the barbed wire, through the mine- fields, and into the ROK and American trenches, killing and be- ing killed. This morning, laughing and smil- ing, they climbed into big Ameri- can yelling and chattering like; boys on the last day of school while ROK army bands played them on. At the Chinese check point, America's highest ranking officers in the Far East were there in person, waving and smiling at each truckload of departing Chi- nese. Thsy were Secretary of the Army Robert Stevens, here for a brief visit; Gen. John E. Hull, U.N. supreme commander; Gen. Max- well D. Taylor, commander of the 8th Army, generals. and a score of lesser j flies to Berlin tomorrow, was press 'ing for early agreement on when how and where full-scale atoms, for-peace talks can be held. His two meetings with Zarubin, on Jan. II and yesterday, appearec to be the curtain raiser to more precise conversation with Molotov. President Eisenhower suggested the talks in a United Nations ad- dress Dec. 8. He said they should be private and should be aimed at creating an agency which, under U. N. auspices, would handle atomic materials and knowledge for peaceful uses, such as in niedi- 'cine and electric power generation. the United States, Britain and other atomic powers would contribute to this pool.

Along the way they stopped for tea brewed by a special crew of Americans. In Seoul, the rolling convoys of 16 trucks each got an ovation. Chi- nese clambered aboard the LSTs that will carry them to Formosa. At the Korean exit point, just west of the place where the Chi-1 nese came out, long trains of steel boxcars stood waiting where the old Pusan-to-Mukden Railway cuts the demilitarized zone.

By FORREST EDWARDS PANMUNJOM (fl India com- pleted early today the historic turnover of anti-Red prison- ers to the U.N. Command as NortU Korean broadcasts declared the ac- tion "destroys" the armistice. The last prisoner, a Chinese, was turned over at a.m. a.m. Wednesday CST) at the end of a surprisingly smooth, oper- ation during which the North Kor- ean and Chinese captives often sang and cheered in the rain and mud. The Indian Command announced ihat Chinese and North Koreans were turned out of the compounds at Panmunjom, ending more than thrte years of captivity for many of them. The Indians said 72 Chinese and 32 North Koreans asked to go home or to a neutral country during the operation, which began Wednesday morning. The Communists, who had pro- tested the turnover plans bitterly, made no threatening gestures as the prisoners streamed southward. The U.N. Command has prom- ised all of the prisoners their free- dom at midnight Friday. Smooth Transfer Red China's Peiping radio Wednesday night repeated its warning that "any unilateral ac- tion with regard to the prisoners of war is absolutely iapermis- sible." But the warning was' mildly worded and officials said the Reds apparently had accepted the Indian command's decision to return un- repatriated prisoners as an accom- plished fact. The transfer went smoothly de- spite minor hitches and a cold, drizzling rain. At least twice the southward flow of prisoners was interrupted. No Koreans appeared for an hour- early in the evening, but there was no explanation. Earlier a dispute over a prisoner asking repatriation baited the movement of Chinese prisoners. A handful of American, British and South Korean prisoners who chose to stay with the Coromunists remained in their neutral zone compound. The Indians planned to ;um them back to the Communists, but the Reds refused to take them. Welcome to Return U. S. Army Secretary Robert itevens, here for the prisoner ransfer, said any of che 21 Amer- cans who asks for repatriation be- ore midnight Friday would be wel- ome to return home. Under Allied interpretation of he Korean armistice all unrepa- triated war prisoners are to bs reed as civilians at midnight Fri- ay. The Communists wanted them kept in custody until a peace onference decides their future. The first of anti-Commu- ist Chinese prisoners returned to U. N. Wednesday were sped tie Ascom City by truck. Then hey boarded U. S. landing ships in nearby Inchon harbor and were cheduled to sail for Formosa arly Thursday. The voyage will take about four days. Gen. John E. Hull, U. N. Far East commander, said they would become civilians at midnight Fri- day whether or not they are on the high seas or still in Korea.
