WASHINGTON en The Air Force is considering decorating or giving some other recognition to former war prisoners who resisted torture and refused to make false confessions for Communist propa gandists A spokesman said today that of ficial recommendation of such ac tion must await completion of a detailed study of each individua case To Five Airmen Such recognition presumably would go to five airmen who re fused to succumb to pressure by the John Streit of South Orange N M Sgt George Morar of Rockville Capt William Preston of Batavia N Capt Zach Dean of Doug lass and Capt William Mc Taggart of East Brady Pa ln the course of interrogating other former prisoners more cases of heroism probably will come to light Regulations apparently would make appropriate any one of sev eral decorations among them the Legion of Merit for outstanding service the Soldiers Medal for heroism involving voluntary risk of life the Bronze Star for outstand ing i service or heroism and the Commendation Ribbon for meri torious achievement or service May Come From Pentagon Under military regulations any officer or other member of the armed forces can suggest recogni tion Normally the formal recom mendation is forwarded by the im mediate commander but in these instances the initiation may come irom higher levels in the Pentagon While a policy for dealing with the men who refused to confess is crystaliang

come home from enemy hands preferring to live with the Communists These new problems most ol them without precedent are the subject of almost daily meetings in the Pentagon to decide not only the individual cases but to frame a general policy LAMESA CHAMBER HAS of thi main participants at the eighth annual Lameia Chamber of Commerce banquet Tuesday night were the men shown above Left to right
