,. Page 2 -THE LITTLE ANGELS Horning said that at the gala national premiere, an invited audience at the Washington Hilton witnessed one of the most unusual evenings of entertainment in the capitol's history. The Little Angels have been training since 1962. All members, selected nation-wide for their brilliance in dancing, recreate the folk dances of Korea, which are much more brilliant and active than other Asian national dances. All the dancers are between the ages of seven and thirteen. They are ac-companied by trained musicians, members of the faculty of the Korean National Court Music Academy .. Tickets for the November 7 performance are now available either by mail or telephone from the Allied Arts Council office in Sarasota's Civic Center or at New College. Serving with Horning on the Foundation are such luminaries as Admiral Arleigh Burke, USN (Ret) president, and honorary officers, former presidents of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman. Horning told the story of the arrival of the Korean troupe at Dulles Airport and of a subsequent trip into the Capitol. Two of the youngest dancers, ages 7 and 8, after seeing the huge new Washing-ton Hilton in which they were to stay and also to perform, asked, "Is this the king's house?11 Admiral Arleigh Burke explained that it was their house for the duration of their stay in Washington. Later after a tour of the White House, one of the young ladies asked in a disappointed voice why the President of the United States would have a house smaller than the one in which she was staying. Admiral Burke told her, "You are a guest of the President and he wanted you to have the big house." The young Korean looked again at the House, reflected on this reply, and then said, "tve love President Johnson." -30-
