Farmer to Seek 500 More ROK Orphans 

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."
