PUSAN, Korea, June
27 (PMP)-Cpl. Phil McHaney, Dallas, Tex., received quite a package from
home yesterday-500 pounds of oatmeal. McHaney soon found that the cereal
was meant for Pusan orphans. Some time ago the corporal, a former all-city
football tackle, wrote to the sports editor of the Dallas News and described
the plight of Korea's homeless children.
The paper launched "Operation Dallas"
to send McHaney goods to be distributed among Pusan orphans. So far,
McHaney understands, the drive has collected nearly half a ton of oatmeal
and 300 pounds of clothing. He expects more big packages from home
in the near future.
