Tokyo (Pac. S&S) A group
of Korean orphans will have a warmer winter thanks to the U.S. Federal
Bureau of Investigation. When Maj. Joseph W. Marshall, serving with
the adju(?) general's section in Korea, sent Christmas greetings to
his former boss, J. Edgar Hoover, and mentioned he knew of some youngsters
in need of warm clothing. Marshall worked in the FBI records section
before entering the Army.
HOOVER TURNED OVER a letter to Marshall's former
(. . ?. . ) workers who took up a collection which resulted in 16 heavy
fleece lined zipper jackets being sent to the children who ranged from
5 to 12 years of age. Upon receipt of the gifts, the tots wrote their
thanks to Hoover in childish scrawl, prompting him to remark in a letter
to Marshall," While their manner of expression is indeed unique, their
sincerity is very touching."
