Yule Parties For Orphans Slated In 7th


WITH U.S. 7TH DIV., Dec. 12 - Operation Santa Claus, the 7th Division's Christmas mission aimed at creating joy among  Korean children, has been reported pressing toward its objective as November payday contributions were being counted.  The spirit of the Bayonet Division and of the Christmas season will provide clothing, food, and toys for thousands of children in scattered villages through six "task forces."

PRACTICAL GIFTS such as warm clothing will be purchased.  Other presents are also in the offering, and parties are being planned by each tack force.  Task Force Dasher, commanded by Brig. Gen. Derrill M. Daniel, assistant division commander, plans to provide clothing by presenting yard goods to the gun-soo, or county head, and having the material cut by the Koreans themselves in appropriate clothing sizes for some 3,300 children.  "In this way," Daniel explained, "the people can make those items of clothing that they need, and local officials will make certain that only those residing in the area actually get a share of the material."
