NY Times, 2 Jan 1954
SEOUL, Korea, Jan. 1 (AP)-Eighty
orphan children who were found living in a cave last spring have enjoyed
holiday gifts of food, toys and clothing as a result of action by
men of the United States Third Bombardment Wing.
They are sheltered in the Ok-Bong orphanage near
Kunsan on South Korea's west coast. The center, which cares for ninety-six
children made homeless by the war, is a gift to them from the Air
Force. It replaces the hillside cave where the waifs lived.
The plight of the youngsters was revealed and
aid began coming in from many quarters. Much came from the Chicago
area in response to a plea printed in a newspaper from Staff Sgt.
Robert L. Ziegner of Sherman, Tex. The Waco, Tex., chapter of the
American Red Cross sent aid. Clothing was provided from donations
sent by personnel at Mitchel Air Force Base, L.I.
