Upfisr Dei Matnii , May 25, 194fl Another Set Of Twins At Titonka It's happened again — twins for a couple with Titonka connections! This time it's for Mr. and Mrs. Merle Miller, and the babies are girls, Shirley Ann and Sharon Kay, born May 13. The family lives on a farm nearer Lakota than Titonka, but Merle grew up at Titonka, graduated from high school there, and went into service. Returning home from war he married and started farming. The Miller twins add up to 23 sets born in the community within recent years. The incidence of twins is once in 87 births. According to that 2,001 babies should have been born in the vicinity the past 20 years; but of course there weren't that many. The community does appear to be carrying an overload of the stork's multiple business. Since Jan. 1, 1948, three sets of twins have been born in Kos- sulh. two pairs of giHs, and one of boys. .
