More photographs purporting to show that American servicemen who vanished during the Vietnam War are still alive have surfaced, raising new questions about the government's handling of the emotional POW-MIA issue as Washington prepares for new hearings on the subject.

Every so often, the same dream invades Harry Whale's sleep: a picture, strikingly real, of himself answering the front door, with his best friend from high school grinning at him from the walkway. "Hey, Whale!" shouts Larry Stevens, the track star and all-around standout who was more a brother than a friend--a companion so constant during those teen-age years that classmates tagged them "Harry and Larry."

Relatives of three missing Vietnam-era servicemen Wednesday accused the Pentagon of putting out "misinformation" in an effort to discredit their contention that a photograph proves the men are still alive.

One Sunday afternoon last July, Gladys Fleckenstein sat in a friend's living room gazing intently at a color photograph of a paunchy, middle-aged man standing before a grass-roofed building, his right arm around an Asian woman. Though she had not seen him in nearly 23 years, Fleckenstein was certain that she recognized the man. She was sure that he was her son, Lt. Cmdr. Larry J. Stevens, a Navy jet pilot from Canoga Park.
