At Air Force "Escape And Survival" School

Reno -- The controversial "Escape And Survival" School operated by the U. S. Air Force at Stead Air Force Base near Reno, was opened to the press yesterday, and here is one of the realistic tableaux observed. The men with their hands on their heads are "prisoners" being herded by "enemy" captors into a compound under the menacing guns of a tank. The school teaches air Force men in a 17 day course how to take care of themselves if captured, ways and means of escape and methods of survival in enemy-held territory. It also teaches how to resist "brainwashing" techniques of their captors. (1955)
