The daily Army milk plane from Japan to Korea will have Bishop McDonnell, Auxiliary of New York, as a passenger next month. He will fly to Seoul, Korea, on June 13, and will consecrate Bishop-elect Patrick J. Byrne, Korea's new Apostolic Delegate the following day. Bishop McDonnell. national director of The Society for the Propagation of the Faith, will go to Korea after attending ceremonies commemorating the 400th anniversary of St. Francis Xavier's landing.
Due to the lack of commercial air service between Japan and Korea, military authorities offered him a seat on the plane which carries fresh I milk to American troops in Korea.
