Diaper Day


SEOUL, KOREA:  Diapers tell the tale as they hang in the sun to dry outside the recently built orphanage of the Holt Adoption Program on the outskirts of Seoul, Korea.  The program, organized and directed by farmer Harry Holt, of Cresswell, Ore., is designed to find homes and parents for the thousands of war waifs in Korea.  The orphanage, built with the aid of about $40,000 in donations, houses 200 orphans prior to their adoption by American families.  Since Holt began his one-man adoption campaign, the Holt agency has sent more than 1,000 orphans to the U.S. for adoption.
