CRESWELL, Ore. (UP)-Harry Holt, the Creswell
farmer who last year brought 12 Korean orphans to the U.S. and adopted
eight of them himself, is going back for 500 more.
Holt said he hoped to get American couples to
adopt the children. Working with Holt is a religious organization
which maintains orphanages in Korea. It was the organization which
helped Holt cut through red tape to bring the 12 children to the
U.S. last year.
Holt has less than 10 months to complete his
rescue operation. The Refugee Relief Act under which the orphans
may enter the U.S. expires at the end of the year. Holt said he
will leave for his second trip to Korea in May, "maybe sooner."
