Incidentally, they have very low contralto voices. All of this is revealed in a paper on the quintuplets' language development, written by \V. E. BlaU, M. I. Fletcher and M. Mason of St. George's School for Child Study of the University of Toronto. The study was one of several made of the quintuplets by Dr. Blatz and his co-workers. Psychologists have shown that single children learn to talk before twins do. The child who grows up in company with another child of his own age can communicate with his playmate through grunts and gestures. The child grows up without such a companion, however, has to learn to talk to make his wants known. If this is true of twins, how much more would it be true of quintuplets! Each of these girls has four playmates, instead of just one at the same stage. From the time they first crawled around the nursery together, the quints had a code of gestures, squeals and jabberings by which they could understand each other. They should worry about language! No Wonder They Were Slow There is another, similar factor. Dr. Blatz has found at the nursery school that children whose parents do everything for them are slower in learning to talk than children who are not so pampered. There again you have the case of a child who doesn't need to learn to talk, because his wants are anticipated before he neds to call attention to them. And there you have another parallel— the quintuplets, who have always had trained nurses in constant attendance, looking out for them and hurrying to meet their needs as no mother, however devoted, could hope to do. Those things considered, it is no wonder that the quints were slow in learning to talk. Having started, however, they are making up for lost time. At present they are acquiring new words faster than the normal child acquires them. The psychologists who have been studying them during the last two years will testify that the girls will talk your arm off, if you give them a chance. One of the biggest difficulties the nursery authorities have had in maintaining meal-time discipline has been due to the fact that the quints like to carry on earnest and interminable conversations over the dinner table. They were born pantomimists, apar- ently—which made it easier for them to get along without words in the early days. This lends spice to their conversation now, for the gestures and the pantomime are still used as much as ever. It's Done With Gestures Jf a quint wants to say "No," she doesn't merely say "No." (Of course, with the quints, it's "Non," anyway, since they talk French). She shakes her head vigorously, letting her curls fly, and says "Non! Non!" with great impressiveness. And when the answer is yes, her "Qui!" is bit off short, accompanied by an emphatic nodding of the head and an extra wide opening of the eyes. The quints know their names, too, although they can't pronounce them very well. Go up to Annette, for instance, and call her Marie and you will get an instant and voluble reaction. "Non! Non!" (With much head-shaking.) ' "Marie la"—pointing. "Moi Annette!" All of the girls can say '.'Yvonne" without trouble. They have a way of turning R into W, which makes Marie, "Mawie." Annette becomes "Nannette," and Cecile becomes "Teeteele." And Emilie is "Meelie." Cant Quite Say It The benevolent shadow of Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe, the quints' physician, protector and best friend, falls across their early language experiences as it does across everything else connected with them. Here is a sample: The ordinary child, learning to talk in English, acquires these words first —Mama, Dada, Papa and Baby. The quints, starting out in French, got these words first—Papa, Maman, Tantan, (for Auntie: the nursery cook is their 3unt) tit-tot, (for tick-lock: clock)— and docteur. Only they don't quite say Docteur; it's more like "Dotteur." Annette and Yvonne led the way in talking,, especially Annette. Twelve imes she started using a word a month Jefore the others could pick it up. Yvonne, on the other hand, has 24 words in her vocabulary that no other quint possesses. Annette has 17, Marie 16, Emilie 15 and Cecile 10. Different in French The study of the girls' progress into spoken language has been extremely interesting to these learned csychol- ogists. For instance: psychologists have pretty definitely tabulated the order in which English-speaking children learn to pronounce the vowel sounds. But the order in which the quints mastered these sounds was entirely different. The quints are learning French, rattier than English, and the vowl sounds are different in French. But the quints developed their control over consonants in the same order that English-speaking children do. Consonants are much the same in all languages—which indicates, possible, that a child develops consonants in the | order of their difficulty, not in the I order ct their use. | Another, along the same line: like ;ill children, the quints were mouthing i single syllable, most of them rneaning- J less to anybody but a quintuplet, long before they were putting them to- i gether into words. And their increase Work ot Italian Bombers in Spam Seen from the air, it looks as though a grove of weird trees sprouts Erorn the plain below, Actually each puff records the deadly explosion of a huge air bomb dropped by Italian flyers on Loyalist positions in Spain.

The well was still cleaning itself. Whether operators will allow the well to flow at its present rate of production or attempt to core deeper in the hopes of making more oil remained to be seen. in the mastery of syllables began about 10 months before they stepped up their increase in the use of words. This, to Dr. Blatz, suggests that the mere joining together of syllables is not the mechanism by which words are formed. Meanings must be added. The child can talk before he has anything to say. The quints are going to be bilingual. From now on, the conversation at one meal each day is to be in English, as fast as the quints can acquire any. Which, judging by the speed with which they are picking up their French, won't be long now. NEXT: How the quintuplets differ in social development.

Rosser Venable became Tuesday Arkansas' first announced candidate for an office to be filled in the 1938 elections. He formally entered the race for the U. S. senate seat now held by Hattie W. Caraway. She has not announced her 1938 plans, but is expected to seek re-election. The 48-year-old Venable unsuccessfully opposed the late Joe T. Robinson for the senate in the 1936 Democratic promary. He has never held a public office. "I am not running against any one," said Venable's announcement, "but running for the office for two reasons: First, I want the office, and second, the office needs me. "I am for balancing the budget and pruning the political appendages that the American people desire removed from the tax burdens. "I am against packing the supreme court, nor do I favor the economic and political control of the American people by 15 states through the wage and hour bill." Mrs. Grayson Quits Secretary's Office Arkadelphia Woman in No Statement After Her Action LITTLE ROCK — (ff">— Thirty-.six hours after reports listing hor as a possible candidate for secretary of state in 1938, Mrs. Mary C. Grayson of Arkadelphia resigned Monday as deputy secretary of state, effective immediately. Both Secretary of State C. G. Hall and Mrs. Grayson said they had no statements. Hall said the deputy, gave no reason for resigning. Mrs. Grayson described as "unfounded" the repirts that she might run against Hall next year. Asked if the news articles had influenced her decision to resign, she reiterated "I IHIVO absolutely no statement to make." The Arkadelphia political leader hn.s been working in Hall's office since January at a salary of $125 monthly. She said she had not decided whether she would return to her home city or remain here. . Mentioned last year as a candidate for secretary of state, Mrs. Grayson announced several days before the primary that she had decided not to run. She supported Hall against Gteorge W. Neal. Mrs. Grayson was one of the three members of the Democratic state committee who urged the calling uf a primary to fill the Joe T. Robinson senate seat last July. The committee instead nominated Governor Carl E. Bailey over the "no" votes of the three. Biblical Pictures at First Baptist Lecture by Rev. W. R. Hamilton at Service Wednesday Night The Rev. W. R.
