need of clothing, Mrs. Leonard Eaton, 4415 So. Van Ness Ave., Los Angeles,
spends all of her time knitting woolen sweaters for the homeless children.

For Orphans' Warmth
KNITTING AWAY, Mrs. Leonard Eaton sits amid the latest
group of sweaters she made for Korean orphans. She recently completed
her 600th sweater for the Korean children. Mrs. Eaton, 4415
S. Van Ness Ave., Los Angeles, has been knitting sweaters for three
years. She sends her sweaters to Seoul Area Command chaplains in bundles
of 70 and 80 with the request that they distribute them to the needy
children of all faiths. Mrs. Eaton's latest project is to supply sweaters
for the 40 children who will be housed in Seoul's new House of Hope
Orphanage. The sweaters are expected to arrive in Korea in late September,
a month before the opening of the building.
