Funeral Rites for Lad Adopted By 34th Division Set

Funeral services will be held tomorrow in Houston for Corporal Alexander Stewart a French orphan adopted by the 34th Division during World War Two who was killed in action in Korea.

The 22 year old Stewart became an American citizen through a special grant of Congress after World War 2. He'd been adopted by the American G.I.'s in France and fought through several campaigns. After the war, Stewart slipped into the U.S. through Houston but he was deported. But Texas Congressmen took up his case and won for him the right to stay in America.

Stewart joined the Army and was promoted to Corporal shortly after he arrived in Korea. His body will be sent to Washington for burial in Arlington National Cemetery, the resting place of heroes.
