An American sergeant, who has done much to help
the war orphans of Korea, is on his way back to the United States
as chaperone for an adopted five year old Korean waif. SFC Wernar
Krenzer, 27, of Rego Park, N.Y., a member of the Seoul team of the
Korean Civil Assistance Committee (KCAC) for the past 17 months, is
accompanying Jimmy Raynor whose name, before he was adopted by Sgt.
Paul Raynor, was Choi Kyung Hyun.
Sgt. Krenzer's good work among the orphans won
wide publicity in the United States about a year ago. As a result,
he has been sent about $10,000, in money and kind, to help him in
his one-man relief drive. Little Jimmy will be leaving Tokyo in the
company of his sergeant friend for a new home in America as soon as
plane space is available.
