Cpl. Earl L. Bunce of Kansas City, Kans.,
is one of the artillery men. His ward is four year old Chin-ni.
First, Bunce gave his new charge a hot bath, rounded up a shot of
penicillin, and for one American dollar, the boy was outfitted with
a "long pants" suit, shoes and a cap.
Telling about it, Bunce said, "Another unit.
. . started this deal and we sort of 'inherited it' when they pulled
out. When we leave, we're going to pass them (the children) on
to the guys that follow."
Bunce grinned and patted the little
hand clinging to his fatigues: "Just look at all the happiness that
a lousy dollar will buy, will you? One thing, though; I'm really
going to miss this guy," he said of the tiny waif.
