Korean Orphans Fete Marines

 HQ., U.S. 1ST MARINE DIV., Korea, Feb. 6-Thirty five Korean orphans from the Columbia Children's Home in Seoul recently gave a company of Marines a party in return for the ones the Leathernecks gave the orphanage Christmas.  The children, from 4 to 13 years old, visited the command post of the 7th  Regt.'s 4.2 mortar company to give their show of dancing and singing of Korean folk tunes.

The home is a Catholic organization and the highlight of the evening was the regularly scheduled Mass for the company.  Later, the children were served hot food and saw a movie.
