Weak and ill after nearly fivt years in Communist prisons, th« Bradshaws left for a U. S. Air Force hospital in the Phil ipplnes today under the care of two doctors and a nurse. "Thanks to everybody," Brad shaw said as he boarded the planfl. "Merry Christmas to you all!" "Wc are going to be all right," the newly-freed Bradshaw told his brother here by telephone. The connection was bad, and a Chl- nea« voice In the background kept saying "Hello, hello." "My brother was cheerful and happy to be out," William said. "It was apparent he hadn't expected to be released so soon." "But his wife's condition is not so good. We hope they will come to our home here, but nothing definite has been decided." * * * Dr. William Bradshaw said all the time his brother and sister- in-law had been In Communist hands, he had received no direct word from them.

Homer was kidnaped from his Chinese Mission Hospital and held prisoner for more than four years before the Communists charged him with "spying."
