Texas Woman Ships Clothes to Koreans
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Nov. 13 (AP)- A Texas housewife
flew to San Francisco yesterday to personally place the postage on
20,000 pounds of clothing for needy Korean children.
Mrs. Lloyd W. Doughty collected the clothing herself
from residents of Dallas - her hometown - and other Texas cities.
She drove the family car from house to house and from town to town
picking up offerings wherever she went.
And enthusiastic Texans, having given her enough
clothing to fill two large trucks, added cash donations to buy postage
to ship the goods from here to Korea and passage aboard United Air
Lines from Dallas to San Francisco for herself.
