Scope and content

A shipment of 60,000 fertilized Kahki Campbell duck eggs from the Netherlands arrived here this morning aboard a transport plane chartered by the UNKRA. The eggs are a gift of the Dutch Committee of Interchurch Aid and Service to Refugees. The Secretary of the Committee, Dr. O. W. Heldring supervised and accompanied the shipment to Korea. The eggs will be distributed to hatcheries throughout the country; 22,000 will go to incubators of national and provincial breeding stations and 38,000 to selected private hatcheries. Distribution of the ducklings after the eggs are hatched has been planned by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in cooperation with the Korea Church World Service (KCWS) and the Korea Civil Assistance Command. Seen here shortly after arriving in Seoul, Dr. O. W. Heldring (left) supervises preparation of the Dutch eggs for incubation. Looking on is Mr. Kim Chong Whan, General Secretary of the KCWS. [1839]
