(Studio) Navy inquiry court hears testimony concerning North Korean treatment of prisoners.
REPORTER: Chet Huntley

Ĺ“Coronado, California) Pueblo operations officer, Lieutenant Frederick Schumacher, says took 20 minutes of beatings to break his will. Schumacher says he knew he'd violated code of conduct. Commander Lloyd Bucher's attorney, E. Miles Harvey, says code must be reevaluated. [HARVEY - feels code may be too stringent; reanalysis needed. Bucher and crew didn't follow guidelines of code perfectly. But they were loyal Americans in accordance with code.] [BUCHER - thinks court inquiry and defense department should take another look at code. Says it's true that it's impossible to live up to code.]
