MAN-SIZED ROTATION - An 8 year old Korean
orphan touched down in Tokyo this week on the first leg of his man-sized
rotation to the United States. As a result of a special congressional
bill introduced in Congress by Sen. William Knowland (R., Cal.), Rhee
Sung Wu is going to Los Angeles to join his foster parents, Capt.
and Mrs. Sylvester Booker. Booker met Rhee last summer when he dressed
a shrapnel wound in the lad's hand. The two became such great friends
that Booker instituted adoption proceedings when he was returned to
the States. It took several months to slice red tape in Pusan but
Rhee is now on his way. He was met in Tokyo by K. D. McKenzie (right),
Northwest Airlines' Orient region sales director.
