Mom and Dad to China Today, March 28, 1947

Dad and Mom (Walter & Helen Jespersen) left from San Francisco to Shanghai, China today, March 28, in 1947.  Margaret was a year and a half and her sister Carol was almost three months old.  The ship was dormitory-style, men in one section and women in another, with little children with the mothers. 

Communism was on the move so there was much concern.  The Communists took over China in 1949.
