WASHINGTON, May 26 (AP)- Korean
Ambassador and Mrs. You Chan Yang accepted more than half a million
pounds of clothing today for Korean war sufferers donated by the people
of Washington and surrounding areas.
Officials directing the drive, which was under
the supervision of American Relief for Korea, a civilian organization
seeking 6 million pounds of clothing throughout the United States,
said they expected the Washington contributions to reach 750,000 pounds
before the collections are completed this week.
The Washington contributions included substantial
gifts from the White House, including a pair of sturdy shoes which
President Eisenhower has been wearing on the golf course.
