SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1957. THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE THIRTY-ONE * Truelife Adventures CHAIN j^E ACTION ^ his mother's entry- kto the United States. He began trying to get approval soon after his arrival in tihis coiai" try. Unsuccessful, he tried to get her admitted as a visitor, but he too was a vaster so that failed. A friend in Pennsylvania tried TO get her admitted as a visitor of his. But she was unable to offer proof she would return to South Korea since she had neither job, ror family, nor property there. THAT Defected No. Korean Pilot's Obsession: Get Mother To US BY GEORGE KELLY NEWARK Del. (AP)—Kenneth Rows has $100,000 in the bank. He's earning an engineering degree, owns a car, plans to make a down payment on a home and will become a U.S. citizen by 1961. All of this came about since the September day in 1953 when Rowe, then called Kum SokNo, landed his Russian MIG15 on an American airfield in Korea and became the recipient of a $100,000 reward. Today, almost fully absorbed into the American scene, Rowe is still fighting a three-year-old battle to bring his mother from South Korea to the United States. . "I think if she dies before she comes here, I shall never be happy," said Rowe A 25-year-old senior at the University of Delaware, Name On Quota List H«r namf is now on the long quota list for U.S. immigration. Rowe's biggest hope lies" in two hills, now in congressional committees. There is a chance one might fa« reported out when Congress reconvenes. Rowe also sees new hope in a bill signed by President Eisenhower several weeks ago to solve hardships for Hungarian! refugees. It state: ". . . Any alien who is the spouse, parent or child of, a citizen, 'or of an alien lawfully admitted for permament residence '. shall be issued a visa and admitted to the United States if otherwise admissable." Rowe said it would be dangerous for him to return to South Korea because of Red agents. He explained fliat tne "forth Korean air fL-rce chief lost his job after Rowe made his daring escape. Rowe also Broadcast for tie IM command to North Korea; No Becomes Rowe America also gave Kum Sok No a new name. .'"No wasn't, such a good name," he says. "In Korea you pronounce it either No or Ro." So Kenny changed it to Rowe. He starts back to dass this week and will g& his engineering .degree next June. In the three years since he donned the blue-and-gold freshman cap with 575 beginners in .the-class of '58.. Rowe's English has become fluent During his., sophomore year he played some soccer, but he says he hasn't had much time for sports'since then. Nor has he frequently dated girls. "The girls were interested in me at irst," he said, "but now I've been aroiuncl so long they must think I"m engaged." He is looking forward to graduation and to selecting one of the many jobs available to engineering graduates. He'll need the salary to buy the house he hopes his mother will be able to shaa$ with bim, It's Embarrassing! Why doesn't he use some of the $100,000? Why doesn't he retir as some people' have suggested? The first fehimg Rowe points ou about the award he received is tfcat ne didn't escape for money but for freedom and his mother. Newspaper headlines that cal him the "$100,000 pilot" embarrass im, he says, He explains he didn't want to throw the money away and make self appear unappreriative. He decided to have it put in- a trust fund, and the State Department ot a Washington, bank to take care of it. It was not taxed, and the inter- t nas " avowed ( the original amount to increase, he says. He used money he saved on magazine Articles, along with some of the nte^est on the $100,000. to pay his way at the university.

She is Kenneth's only family and he is her only child. She Inspired Him Ironically, Kenneth claims, it wes his" mother's escape with United Nations troops from North to South Korea that convinced him he too must escape. A month after, his mother had left her village, Senior Lt. No of the North Korean air force took his chance. Rowe said he knew nothing of the $100,000 offer for an MLG15 by Gen. Mark Clark. He said he had been stationed in Manchuria where he had taken part in 60 missions against UN forces, but was' out of reach of leaflet-bearing UN planes. He said Red plots were si- iramist wave lengths on the radio. Besides, he pointed out, with North Korean devalued currency counting in the thousands, no pilot had any idea how much $100,000 was. Crosses The Line Stationed at a base near the North Korean capital of Pyongyang to guard against truce violations, he took off Sept. 21 on a routine solo reconnaissance flight. In 13 minutes he was wagging his wings, flashing all his lights and lowering his landing gear over Kimpo Air Force Base in South Korea, hoping the Americans would hold their fire. The former communist pilot was permitted only two hours with his another before he was flown to Okinawa. -Officers told him bhrougb Japanese interpreters it XltJ oetilU -LVCVI ^/IULW*O ii ^A%*- *•** — — - —=— - .. lowed to.listen to only two com- would be easy for ban to arrange for CLEANEST CLOTHES! for LI NT REMOVAL! for DRIEST SPIN! by U.
