Lost Kids Get New Home

SEOUL, Dec. 28- Eighty children found living in a cave on a Korean hillside last spring this week will move into the new six-unit Ok-Bong orphanage built by members of the 3rd Bombardment Wg. And the 808th Engr. Av. Bn. near Kunsan, Fifth Air Force reported.

Made homeless during the war, the children had banded together under the leadership of an 18-year-old-lad.

They lived in a cave during the bitter winter of 1952 until they were discovered by Chaplain (Maj.) Luther D. Fletcher, Greenville, S.C.

Through the chaplain and other members of the wing, persons in the U.S. were made aware of the needs of the children and aid began to arrive from many quarters.
