Adoption Will Net Lad
WITH 3D TMRS, Nov. 13-Military personnel traveling
by train to and from Seoul have recently been attracted by the unusual
sight of a Korean youngster stamping travel orders and assigning
train berths at the Seoul RTO.
Doing a similar job beside the boy is an American
serviceman. The boy is Kim Myong Kil, 15, and the taller man is
Cpl. Earl C. Sheets, 23, Sugar Grove, O., whose family has adopted
SHEETS, WHO IS going home soon, after working
at the reservations counter of the Seoul RTO since June, 1951, said
he first met Kim when the latter came to his outfit last June asking
for a job. Sheets said he immediately hired the youngster and clothed
and fed him. In the ensuing weeks, the two became closely attached
to each other. Sheets finally got his mother to start adoption
proceedings. Plans now call for Kim to join Sheets in the United
States in late February.
