Dad OK After Birth Of Trio - Jesus; Mora, father of tripjets-- two sons and a daughter, born Tucson Saturday afternoon--today was reported "doing as well as be expected." As a matter of fact, he's pretty excited and happy about the whole thing. But when Dr. Fred C. Gregg announced the triple arrival, Mora thought the doctor's Spanish wasn't] too good. When he learned it the truth, he nearly fainted. Delivering triplets was a · new experience for Dr. Gregg, too. frankly admitted the third baby came as a complete surprise to him. He delivered Mrs. Mora's first baby, a little girl, in October,: 1949. He'd only seen Mrs. Mora once since' then, when he met. her at St. Mary's hospital early Saturday morning to deliver her baby. Ifo Visits To Doctor Mrs. Mora's mother had been ill, 10 he hadn't visited her doctor, · explaining that she felt perfectly all right. . ,, "I-was prepared for twins, Dr. Gregg said, "r.s soon as I examined her at the, hor-jital early Saturday morning. We waited around until about 4:30 that 'afternoon--and then within IS minutes we had thi:ee babies. The last one was real surprise to all of us." The boys weijghed 4n at 3 6 ounces and 3' pounds 4% The baby girl [.weighed 4 pounds one-half ounce.' First Since 1937 The first. triplets delivered sue cessfully at St. Mary's, since 1937 they, are pretty . sure} to ."become hospital pets.even before they're out of their incubators.' Today the boys are reported doing a little better than their sister, although she was a bit heftier on arrival. Mrs. Mora, the 32-year-old moth er, seemed to take the triple play ·more calmly than anyone else. delighted with her babies, and is doing nicely. And she's awfully glad her husband,, ar. employe o'f the Unit laun- ·dry. took out hospital and medical insurance some time ago.
