P.O.W.’S HAD LIST OF PROHIBITIONS (David Rollins)

The North Vietnamese captors of American servicemen were adamant. No writing on the pri son walls. No noise. No dis courtesy to the guards.

Regulations issued by the North Vietnamese in 1969 pro mised a reward for prisoners who informed about violations and punishment for those who tried to oppose their captors’ will.

The regulations, which termed the American prisoners criminals, were posted in Eng lish in February, 1969, in the “Hanoi Hilton,” as American prisoners of war called one of the Hanoi prisons in which they were held.

A sheet containing the regulations was smuggled home by a Navy officer, Lieut. Comdr. David J. Rollins of Pioche, Nev., a prisoner for six years. He has now turned a copy over to re porters.
