Marine Saves Boy. Bae Dae Soon, 15-year-old Korean orphan, is winning a fight against tuberculosis in a hospital, thanks to Marine Master Sergeant Harold Harris, left, of Route 1 Tecumseh, Kansas. The homeless boy took up with Marines as a house boy and Harris gave him chores. Then one day the boy developed a cough. With the help of Commander Joseph F. Parker of Palm City, Calif., a chaplain with the First Marine Aircraft Wing, Harris got the boy into a Pohang hospital and arranged to pay his expenses. Harris is the son of Mrs. Annie Harris, Tecumseh. Approving his patient’s happy situation is Dr. Kim, a refugee physician.
