Ten years after the end of World
War 11, the war prisoner issue is

with countries in both Asia and
The prisoner issue could become
a major obstacle to the conclusion

gotiated by Russia and Japan it)
It could also prevent the estab
lishment of normal relations be
tween Russia and West Germany,
for which the Kremlin made a bid
when it invited West German
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer tc
It is possible, too,1 if not prob
able, that the general question of
prisoners will come up during the
Big Four conference in Geneva
Tt may not come up during the
first pr "summit" phase, which
President Eisenhower is to attend
More likely, it would crop up dur
ing the second phase, in which
t'-.e Big Four foreign ministers are
to negotiate on specific questions.
The Russians undoubtedly are
aware of this, and undoubtedly
they hope fervently that by some
chance the fate of the prisoners
will be ignored.
Can Show Sincerity
But if the men in the Kremlin
really are sincere In their ex
pressed desire to reduce world
tensions, they could make a fine
start by releasing some of the
foreign victims they hold in slave
labor camps.
Japanese government records
list 1,-152 Japanese war prisoners
known to be alive in Soviet prison
camps, about 1,000 held in the is
land of Sakhalin off the Siberian
coast, and 10.090 who were known
to be alive in prison camps as late
as 1950.
Ausfrians recently released by
Russia estimated that between
5,000 and 6.000 Japanese including
diplomats as well as military men

Moscow to the Pacific Ocean.
The details of West German

be fixed. It is still not certain, by

meeting be held somewhere else
