Sergeant, Wife To Rear Waif


HQ., EIGHTH ARMY, Jan. 28-Sgt. Thayer M. Williams, a cook at 22nd Sig. Gp. Hq. in Seoul, and his Korean wife, Mrs. Young Soon Lee Williams, have appointed themselves the foster parents of a tiny Korean baby which Sgt. Williams found in the business district of Seoul last week.  Sgt. Williams, Wilmington, Del., found the baby in an alleyway near the Seoul PX and after searching in vain for the mother, rushed it to the 121st Evacuation Hospital in Seoul.  The infant has been placed under the care of the Seoul Sanitarium.  Sgt. Williams and 4 other soldiers plan to contribute a portion of their pay each month to the support.
