They ; are Hermann Field, his brother, Noel, and Joel's wife, Herta. Their disappearance into the tommunist world has been an international mystery. The United States demanded that the two Iron Curtain governments turn the Americans; over to U-S. authorities "at the curliest possi- 1 ble date." ; V • V ! Hermann Field was a Cleveland, O,, architect. Noel, Field once worked for the State Department from 1926 through the mid-1930's. The U. S. notes to Poland and Hungary revealed ', that: § 1.
