San Francisco: Cpl. Peter Danza gives Mrs. Clifton Lyon the 18-months-old Korean orphan girl, Chung Mi, he brought with him  from the Orient aboard the transport Gen. Anderson.  Danza, 24, volunteered to bring the youngster to the U.S. for Cpl. (and Mrs.) Russell Bowen, of Eastport, Connecticut, who adopted her from a Korean orphanage.  Mrs. Lyon is Bowan's mother-in-law.  Danza's biggest problem on the trip - diaper-changing, naturally.
