WASHINGTON -- (P) - Chair-
man Barden= (D-NC) of the House
Labor Committee declared yester-
day there is a pronounced feeling
in Congress and the nation tha1
the Wage Stabilization Board
(WSB) is stacked in favor of or-
janized labor.
He said he slid not mean the
Board was "stacked with dishonest
men," but that "there are too many
men put on there who were of the
same mind." The public members
of the Board, he said, "have been
mixed up in the labor movement.'"
BARDEN'S bristling. statement
wound up a three-day appearance
before the committee of Nathan P.
Peinsinger, WSB chairman, who
has undergone pointed question-
ng about the board's controversial
teel wage decision.
Feinsinger replied that the six
public members of the board
were not protagonists of organ-
ized labor, but he readily con-
ceded that a number of them-
himself included--were active in
the labor relations field.
"I believe in collective bargain-
ng, and I believe in labor organ-1
zation," he said. "And if you're

tomorrow night. The committee
may find it necessary to recall
some witnesses or interview new
ones, he added.
LAST OF THE scheduled wit-
nesses to appear was Corrections
Commissioner Earnest C. Brooks.
He denied the state was too
soft with the prisoners, whose
four-day revolt caused an esti-
mated $1,500,000 damage and
the life of one rioting inmate.
"You can call it that (too soft)
if you want to," he told the fact-
finders. "But I call it the humani-
tarian approach. We have two
principal objectives: one is keep-
ing the inmates in custody: two
is having their confinement harm
them as little as possible.

by quoting "one of my old com-

always to take your job seriously,
never yourself." He said that
"all the things I support" as
Supreme Allied Commander in
Europe "I would continue to
support wherever I am and
whatever my favor shall be."
Earlier today on his arrival from
Paris Eisenhower hailed the ini-
tialing of the European Army

SEOUL, May 10-An American
General held captive for three
days by tough North Korean pris-
oners of war on Koje Island asked
the Eighth Army today not to at-
tempt his rescue by force until full
Communist demands are made
But battle-tested Eighth Army
infantrymen stood ready to storm
a Koje Island compound of 6,000
surly Red war prisoners and rescue
Brig. Gen. Francis T. Dodd, who
was kidnapped three days ago.
* * *
GEN. JAMES A. Van Fleet dis-
closed today that the Allied Com-
mand already had granted the
hot-head Communist prisoners
some minor demands in an effort
to obtain the release of Gen. Dodd.
But the Eighth Army commander
made clear he never would yield
to "unreasonable" demands from
the Reds. He insisted that the
52-year-old General be released
"We have granted minor re-
quests of the Communits and
have asked them for a statement
. of their demand--telephones,
writing paper, admittance of
representatives to other com-
pounds," Van Fleet said in a
"Gen. Dodd in a telephone con-
versation with camp authorities
last night requested that there be
no violence," Van Fleet said. "Dodd
indicated that conferences within
the hide-away were being held on
a peaceful plane."

Van Fleet, who made a trip by
plane to the Southeast Koreasu"
Island Friday, said it was ex-
pected the Communist leaders
would conclude their talks witk
Dodd this morning.
Dodd commanded the sprawling
prisoner of war camp on Koje Is-
land when he was seized Wednes-
day by North Korean prisoners.
He has since been replaced by
Brig. Gen. Charles F. Colson.

THE LAST WORD out from be-
hind the barbed wire of the grim
compound was that Dodd was be-
ing well treated. By telephone he
said he apparently was in little
Dodd was captured by the
prisoners of Compound 7 at
3:15 p.m. Wednesday as he stood
r talking at the gate with their
leaders. Lt. Col. Wilbur R. Ra-
ven also was seized, but grabbed
a gate post and pulled free.
"The gate was a wide one," an
Army spokesman said. "Dodd wash

When the prisoners grabbed him,
it was an organized mob and he
was swept inside.
"Ever since the guy was whisked
in, nobody has seen him or knows
where he is."

"THE EVIDENCE as to what
happened at the time of Gen.
Dodd's capture is so conflicting
that no clear picture is possible
now," Van Fleet said.
Dodd is just another American
soldier now. The moment the
Reds seized him he lost his com-
mand status, a spokesman ex-
plained. This also has been ex-
plained to the Reds.

In fact, the club was known in

was not until the beginning of the

present title.
