' '- : . , (United Prets-Boiton Glob Teleshoto) NO WORDS WERE NECESSARY Hans Schumacher, 10, formally expresses his gratitude to Air Force Sgt Charles Badger of Norwood, at New York Airport. Badger aided Hans and his mother, Mrs. Ingeborg Schumacher, center, in getting to this country. Ten years ago, in the last stages of World War II, Mrs, Ingeborg Schumacher lived in terror while American planes bombed her hometown near Hamburg. Yesterday she and her son, Hans, 10, arrived to start a new life in this country, thanks to one of the Air Force men who participated in the raids that blasted Hamburg. Air Force MSgt Charles Badger, 28, of Norwood, now stationed at Westover Field, did not think of the destruction he was pouring on the enemy cities during the heat of the war, "but after the war I saw the destruction and I was part of it," he said as he greeted Hans and his mother when they arrived in New York on the Italia.

"Plenty of Room" Hans and his mother will live temporarily on the large dairy farm of William Cameron Forbes, former Governor General of the Philippines. Last night, Knight Badger said, "We're all looking forward to seeing them in a few days, and we have plenty of room for them until they have a place of their own." Badger is superintendent of Forbe's Gay Farm. Saddened by the great les-truction in Germany, Sgt Badger two years ago arranged with the Save the Children Federation of New York, an organization devoted to care of children in all parts of the world, to contribute $8 monthly for the benefit of a German child. Some time later he received a picture of young Hans, who lived in Bad Oldesloe, near Hamburg. Badger and the Soy's mother began an exchange of letters, and then arrangements were made to bring the pair to America, Paid Traveling Expenses Sgt Badger paid the $600 it cost to bring them here and has guaranteed support of the widow and her son for two years. In New York, Mrs. Schumacher said she intends .to look for work and a home as soon as she gets settled in Norwood. Hans was much too excited to say much, even to practise his English. Sgt Badger left Norwood High School to enlist in the Air Force 12 years ago, and' remained in service after the war. Other mem- bers of his family who will give a warm welcome to the German mother and son include his mother,1 a brother, Albert, 16, and a sister, ' Faith, 9.
