Clark returns to U.S., calls
for end to 'inhumane' raids

SAN FRANCISCO (P) - For-
mer U. S. Attorney General
Ramsey Clark, back from a two-
week fact-finding tour of-North
Viet nam, declared yesterday
that U. S. bombing of the North
"has got to stop."
While backing off an earlier
statement that the North Viet-
namese would free American
prisoners if the bombing were
halted, Clark told a news con-
ference that he is convinced that
the POWs will be released upon
"full settlement of the war."
In an earlier- statement made
in Hanoi, Clark said there "has
been massive inhumane bombing
of cities, villages, churches,
schools, hospitals, dikes, sluices,
canals, and the very water sys-
tem which supports the life of
this country."
He said yesterday that he had
either "misspoke or was mis-
quoted" in an airport statement
Sunday night saying he had been
told POWs would be freed
"when we stop this senseless
bombing and get on with the
business of peace." ,
Clark said it was wrong to
convey any idea that the priso-

ners would be released at once
when the bombing ended.
Clark, who viewed bomb dam-
age and talked with 10 American
prisoners, said he had strongly
urged the Communist govern-
ment to release some prisoners
immediately.
"Frankly, I think they will re-
lease a few soon," he said.
"But they told me it was im-
possible to release prisoners
while the bombing was still go-
iog on."
Clark was asked about state-
ments attributed to him and
broadcast by Radio Hanoi which
John Mitchell, recently resigned
attorney general, described as
"near treason.
Clark replied, "Name calling
won't end the war. I don't pay
any attention."
He said he had rejected invi-
tations to broadcast on Radio
Hanoi to the Vietnamese people
and to U. S. military personnel.
Clark said he had explained,
"I am an Aferican and I
wanted to report to the Ameri-
can people on American soil.
"I believe in the basic good-
ness of the American people. If
they know the truth they'll do
justice. They believe in justice,
they really do.",
Clark, who served as attorney
general under President John-
son, said he had talked to Reu-
ters, Agence France Press, and

'"as a free man, free to say
what I see and think."
He said he had been too busy
to know what use Radio Hanoi
had made of any statements he
made there.
But, he said Radio Hanoi
would be free to use the media
reports of his San Francisco
news conference.
The former Justice Depart-
ment chief also said the editor
of North Vietnam's largest news-
paper told him some American
prisoners would be released on
George McGovern's inauguration
day if President Nixon were de-
feated.
Clark said he believed the edi-
tor made his statement in the
spirit and context of McGovern's
pledges to stop the bombing,
withdraw American forces and
end the war.

several dike installations that
had been hit several times.
Clark 'said he talked to 10
American prisoners as the first
foreigner to visit a prison camp
since an abortive American
paratroop raidnattempt to free
prisoners in one camp.
"Those men are not brain-
washed," he declared. "They
say they are in good health,
and they looked like good and
strong men."
In Washington, the Defense
Department disputed Clark's
claim that North Vietnam is pro-
viding captured servicemen hu-
mane treatment.
Referring to Clark's statement,
Pentagon spokesman J e r r y
Friedheim said, "We're certain
he is familiar with all the pro-
visions of the Geneva Conven-
tions. It continues to be our be-
lief that the enemy is not adher-
ing to those conventions, and
therefore is engaging in unhu-
manitarian action."
Friedheim refused, however,
to comment on Clark's state-
ment that he had both oral and
written assurances that Ameri-
can POWs would be released
when the United States ends its
involvement in the Vietnam war.
