SEOUL (Pac. S&S) - Sixty cheerful little Korean
orphans are a lot happier today and better prepared for the bitter
winter months ahead because of the kindness and generosity of a group
of people in Allentown, Pa.
In response to an urgent request from Lt. Samuel
C. Elliott, members of St. Lukes Lutheran church of Allentown packed
20 large size parcels of clothing, bedding and school supplies and
marked them for the Columbia children's school in Yondongpo.
ELLIOTT HAD discovered the school by chance while
transporting supplies from Inchon Impressed by the good he saw being
done at the orphanage, he inquired as to the children's needs and
then promised he would see to it that they got them. Monday that
promise was fulfilled when a stacked weapons carrier backed up to
the school and unloaded some 300 pounds of the badly needed supplies.
