They were placed in hospital beds ringed by newspaper, TV and newsreel cameramen and reporters. The other three were seated. Questions Again The barrage of questions began— questions that had been asked and answered in Panmunjom, Freedom Village, Tokyo, Honolulu. Questions that must be answered again when they reach home. "What was It like? How did they treat you? How was the food? What are you going to do now? Can you speak louder please? What did that man say? They took it well, these men who have taken it so long. Garcia finally started edging toward the door. He wanted to telephone his mother. His progress was painfully slow. Airman Robert Weinbrandt of El Cajon, Calif., a double ampu- ee. lay on the bed and peered hrough the glaring lights at. his questioners. His voice faltered and dropped lower and lower. He told ils story once, twice, three times. He had been shot down on a B29 nisslon. He didn't know what hap- icned to the other crew members, ie was a prisoner four months, iure, he was glad to be home. The other little patient was Jberto Pizarro of Puerto Rico, aptured on the Hook last Octo- er. He, too, told his story again nd again before attendants vheeled him away. Pfc. Raymond H. Medina of the :ronx, New York, and Cpl. Theo- ore Jackson of Palestine, Tex., almly and patiently told and re- old of the monotonous POW diet . of Red attempts to convert tiem to communism . . . their urprise and gratitude at their epatrlation. They told too of their lans: Jackson, a 10-year veteran, '111 stay In the Army, l^fedlna fants to go to college and major l English literature. A few other repatriates wandered >. They were questioned, left lone, questioned again. All were racious, but happy when It ended. The lucky ones got their travel rders, partial pay, plane nr train eservations home, transportation into San Francisco, 40 miles away. Twenty-one were told they could go home at once—_but only 12 felt up to leaving last night. Seven were told they would be flown today to government hospitals near their home.

Daniel said liaison officers of both sides would meet at 10 a.m. Friday to discuss problems concerning exchange of disabled prisoners. He did not say what the problems were. The Communists have said that 684 disabled Allied prisoners (Including 149 Americans) turned over last.week were all the disabled they had. But those prisoners told of more sick and wounded Allied prisoners In North Korean camps. The Allies have been returning 500 Red sick and wounded dally.
