?AGI TWO SLYTHEYILLI (ARK.) COVRIB* MEWI THUMDAT, MARCH 1, Overseas with BILLY GRAHAM By Georg* Burnhsm (Ch»tUnoo|[» News-FrM fnm Writer) SEOUL, Korea — The U. S. military provided Billy Graham with a plush C-54 and not so plush helicopter for his two-day trip to Korea but he was not on a junket. Every time he looked up he was speaking to thousands of people. He looked up once and was near the S8th parallel, now a No Man's land with alert Americans and Communists on both sides. Some of them are trigger happy under the uneasy truce — not peaceful. On the day before Billy's arrival UN forces fired 1,000 rounds of| ammunition. During his busy morning at the front Billy spoke to thousands of American soldiers from the Seventh and 24th divisions. Some of tliem rode over two hours in open trucks during freezing weather to nrar the ~ preacher from back home. Several hundred raised hands as an indication they believed what he said/ at er The Ui'gc evangelist was 60.000 on Sunday afternoon in Seoul Among those in attendance was President Syng- man Rhee,' an old war dog who thinks that Americans are preity stupid for not resisting . Communism with force. He wants to storm back across the parallel and unify Korea come what may. ON THE NIGHT BEFORE the aiternoon rally a missionary and I were walking along a frozen road and he said, "If it stays this warm there's no telling how many people will turn out for the . meeting tomorrow." I glanced over at him to see if he was trying to pull my numb leg which was in the first stages of frostbite. He was serious. It turned out that the weather was very warm for Korea but there wouldn't have been 50 Americans out for the-Sunday service. The people who sat patiently and listened as the chill wind whipped across the stadium were the same people seen in newsreels as they trudged up and down Korean roads as refugees escaping from the Communist armies. Little children j .had lost their soared looks and romped around the - edges of the crowd. There were some children, however, who were not present. Their pwents were ashamed of them and iept them hid in back rooms. The reason for their shame was that the children were half-breeds left behind by their American lathers. The most despised persons in Korea are half-breeds. ' The little boys and girls, even though they had nothing to do with their pitiful plight, face lives of suffering as outcasts. Some of them have been secretly killed by Koreans and none will ever be accepted here by society. Missionaries have rescued a few of the children and are endeavoring to find them Christian American homes denied them by indifferent Jathen who had gone out for a night on the town. CLIFF BARROWS, music director for the Graham team, has been supporting one — a six-year-old Korean boy — with monthly contributions, but he had never seen him until Monday. A boy named Kim was brought to him at the oiphanage. Cliff picked him up and hugfred him tight. It must have been the first time anyone had ever shown Kim that he was loved and ' wanted. He grabbed Cliff around the neck and wouldn't let go for 30 minutes. The most awful thing in the world is not to be wanted. Cliff conducted his part of the program with the little fellow in his arms. Finally he had to leave In order to catch the plane back to Tokyo. There were tears in the eyes of the big American and the little Korean. They had never seen each f other before, but love had covered ; the gap in a mattter of minutes, f Cross Burned In Louisiana NEW ORLEANS W — A rag-covered, 10-foot cross blazed near a statue of Jefferson Davis Tuesday nipht, brightening a sign scrawled with the words: "Keep our kids safe from the black plague." The cross burning was the first in New Orleans since the era of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1820s. The incident came in the midst of a school segregation controversy. spotlighted by a conflict between lay Roman Catholic leaders and church officials! . The Jefferson Davis statue stands at the intersection of Canal Street and Jefferson Davis Parkway, a' residential area heavily dotted with churches. It is near the downtown business center of New Orleans. The city has felt the school seg regation controversy in recent weeks. Archbishop Joseph Francis Rummel, in a pastoral letter Feb. 19. declared segregation "morally wrong and sinful" and indicated he would desegregate parochia schools, perhaps after September 1956.
