Present Automobiles for Children in Heiwaen From American
A toy automobile and a tricycle for children in
Heiwaen [Peace] Orphanage, Beppu, were presented by boys of a U. S. Army
soldier, who are soon to go home.
The presenters are William Blum, age 8 and Jimmy Blum, age
3, sons of Sgt. William Blum, Co. K. Camp Chickamauga, Beppu.
Sgt. Blum's family are to leave Beppu for the States on
the 24th and his children went to Heiwaen two or three times to play with
children there. The boys discussed presenting their toys to their friends in
Heiwaen. Then, they talked to their father about it and presented them
through their father.
These unexpected presents as parting gifts made children
in Heiwaen very happy and all the children, although unaccustomed to such
toys, are enjoying driving them in the garden.
