CRESWELL, Ore. (UP)- Eight
Korean waifs rescued from orphanages by 50-year-old Harry Holt began
new lives at a 350-acre farm near here Sunday.
The children, abandoned to orphanages by their
American soldier fathers and Korean mothers, arrived at Portland International
airport Friday afternoon from the far East, accompanied by "Papa"
Holt, the father of six children, is adopting
the eight youngsters whose ages range from eight months to three years.
Mrs. Holt, who said she felt like 'the most expectant
mother in the world" while waiting for her husband and the children
to arrive, said she has fixed up and eight-bed nursery for the tots.
She is a registered nurse.
