By HARLOW M. CHUKt'H NBA SUff Correspondent "' TOKYO. Mar. 13 (NBA)—This Is the story of Franklin ,D. Hoose- velt Jones^-Junlor^or Just plain' Frankle to hundreds of GIs in Toyko. • Frankle's mother and father named him Minoku Shlb.ita when lie wis born seven years ago In on Its triumphant march In China. FYankle's baby 'days were calm and serene. Then the United States entcr- "cd the war, and the bombers came to Tokyo Itself. In one fliim- hig, horrible night block-busters wiped out Prankle's mother, father and younger brother, and left his home a chared ruin. Only Frankic o'clock— scrspnel wound In his cheek. The wound healed. But. wartorn Tokyo was no place for a seven- year-old child. Pronkie »te out of garbage palls and slop buckets, slept In hovels or beneath the ruins of other burned homes. Then came the Ols. Frankle watched, wondered. One night while he huddled In the dank ehlmbashl subway h« spotted bi«-, lean Corp. Emmet Gary, a 95-year-old ex-rancher from Henderson, Tex. "Papsan," cried Frankic. throwing his anus around Gary's legs. The appeal was mutual. Gary picked up the dirt-encrusted, vermin-infested youngster, nnd carried him all the way back to his barracks. There he routed out barracks middles who helped him scrub Fninklc until he gleamed They gave the boy a liberal sprinkling of OUT, broke out "C" rations for Frankie's first full meal in months, and finally bedctea him down in a sleeping bag and cot. Gnrywasnt Interested In doing a half-way rehabilitation Job on the Tokyo waif. Getting him clean, fed nnd rested was the first step. Making him a useful citizen came next. Decked out in cut-down arihy uniforms, Frankle was unofficially enlisted as a buck private, and started his basic training. I.earns toellih He had to wash himself and his clothes, clean up his share a! the harracks, make his own lied. Next he started to learn English. He learned so fast that Gary established the rule: "No profanity in. the barracks." And Gary was big enough to make H stick. Frankle was a model youngster. As a reward for good behavior lie was promoted to private first clas^ ami the -stripes -were sewn on his sleeve with due ceremony. He became such a model boy that In no time he was a brevet captain. Gary took his discharge in Tokyo In the hope that when he does go back to Texas he can taka' Prankie with him. For the next i nine months Gary will be working [ as a civilian clerk and Investigator . in the legal division of the Eco- , nomlc and Scientific Section of the SCAH. If he can't bring Frankie home with him. Gary plans to make ample financial provisions for the boy's care and education In Japan. Mciiiiwliile, T'rankle is cohceti- Lrntlng on learning to read his adopted language. While Gary Is away at his office Prankie spends his time in the Red Cross recreation room In the building w here he rtnd Gary live. When he isn't serving coffee and doughnuts to Ols, he can be found Curing over the books In the library. The American way-of-lofe agrees with Frankie. He's already gained 20 pounds, and Is constantly outgrowing his clothes. But the future doesn't worry Frankie. As long as he has his "Piipnsan" Gary, he hasn't a care In the world. , Osceola Sockly—Person*! Krankie is learning buw to read. Red Cross worker West St. Fiiul, Minu., Is bis teacher.
