SEOUL, May 7 (8th Army)-In observance of Children's Day here yesterday, members of the 55th Military Police Co. played host to 120 orphans of the Choung Hyun Baby Home in an all-day outing at Chang Duk Palace.  The children, ranging from infants to youngsters of 13, were treated to ice cream, milk, sandwiches, cake, oranges and candy at the picnic grounds of the palace.  They were escorted by members of the MP Company around the palace where they viewed its sights.  The men donated their off-duty time to assist in the celebration, having sponsored the orphanage under the AFAK program for the past year.
