May 30, 1953

WELCOME—Cho is greeted on his arrival in Seattle in 1953 by Mrs. Richard Gormanson, wife of one of his U.S. Army benefactors.

HAPPY Boy—Song Yong Cho, 11, and Mrs. Richard E. Gorman both show their happiness at Seattle as the crippled Korean orphan arrived in the United States to live at Boys Town, Neb. Mrs. Gorman’s husband, a sergeant with an Army orthopedic laboratory in Korea, fitted the boy with artificial legs. Song, accompanied by Msgr. Nicholas H. Wegner, director of Boys Town, will leave tomorrow for New York and a visit with Francis Cardinal Spellman.
