This question, for which loil md humane arguments can be made, on cllhersirie, was pointed up yesterday by a new Air Force regulation. The regulation increases from four to 12 hours the time that must elapse between the sending of o f f i c i a l . n o t i f i c a t i o n to next of in and (he release of names for use by press and radio. Whst troubles everyone--relatives, military and press-radio-- ia this: In holding back names for pub- icalion the relatives of 10 or 20 men may be shielded from the shock of receiving the first word through press or radio announce* ment, if the military has been un- ahle to reach them meanwhile. But the relatives of possibly JO.OOO other men, known to £e in the area of the accident, undergo hours or days of anxiety u n t i l they know the rames of their servicemen are not on the grinv list. The m i l i t a r y feels that its policy --withholding names foi a specified period until cither relatives have been notified or it may be assumed sufficient time has tlapaed for such notification to be cvmpieted--Is the lesser of two evils. · But the other side of the problem w«s demonstrated recently in in incident dilring winter maneU' ver» at Camp Drum, N, Y. A plane with four crewmen and » load of paratroopers who were to make a drop crashed on takeoff. Authorities announced that /our men were dead, The news appeared in early morning newspaper editions and radio newscasts. At Camp Drum, for the maneuvers were 33,000 soldiers, paratroopers and members of plane crews. Any of theie men could tiave been in the crash. The base lelephonei were flooded with calls on anxious relative*. The names of the men were not announced until the following day. The time interval for publication of names now differs with services, A'liile the Army and Navy follow :he general policy of releasing lames involved in accidents in the Jriited Slates after the four-hour nlerval, the Air Force has.-re- .'ised its time to 12 hours. An Air Force spokesman says his was done because a survey bowed a large percentage of no- ifications do not reach next if kin n f o u r hours, that sometimes it akes as much as 22 hours. EXCLUSIVE!
