Yule Gifts Reach Korea from Alabama

HQ, FEAF, Tokyo, Nov. 7- One ton of Christmas gifts for the orphans of Pusan was flown to Korea recently on a U.S. Air Force 374th Troop Carrier Wing C-124 Globemaster, along with a regular shipment of military cargo.

The gifts, from Alabama citizens, had been airlifted from Alabama across the Pacific by Military Air Transport Service.

Capt. William G. Vest, Ashland, Ky., was pilot of the Korean airlift 315th Air Division Globemaster.

The Korean airlift also resumed the movement by air of hydroponic vegetables from the U.S. Army Farm at Chofu near Tokyo, yesterday, delivering 14 tons of lettuce and Swiss chard to Seoul for U.N.C. troops.

The fresh vegetable lift, an important phase of cargo operations earlier this year, had been temporarily halted because of higher priority commitments and reduced by flying hours.
