FBI Employees Provide Warm Duds for Orphans

 
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."
