The articles are based on scientific papers read before Ca- mtfllan end American scientists at a special meeting in Toronto. By BRUCE SATTON NBA Service Staff Correspondent TORONTO, Ont—The problem of training the Dionne guintuplets hps. been exactly^ like the" problem met iff any home where there is a group of. small children to brinR up. Five little girls are five little girls, even if they are the most famous ones on earth. And when experts in child training from St. George's School for Child Study in Toronto, were called in to advise on the training of the Dionnes, they simply adapted the principles that have been proven successful with other children. They met some problems, of course, and made some discoveries. Among the problems: What do you do when a small quintuplet insists on standing up at the fool of her bed when she ought to be lying down and sleeping? What happens when five quints, duly ushered into the dining room, indulge in a wild free-for-all due to the fact that all five of them want to sit in the same chair? Suppose a quint with a mind of her own decides that she would rather cat her custard than her spinach, when spinach is what she really needs; what then? Need Other Children Among the discoveries: That the quints can feed themselves quite capably, but that they do it in a manner that would put Emily Post right under the table: That a quintuplet who doesn't want to go to sleep can devise stratagems cunning beyond her years; That five youngsters of exactly the same age who grew up together, mingling with no other children, arc somewhat handicapped, and that the quintuplets need to mix with older and younger children whose backgrounds, bringing up, and so on, arc different than their own. As soon as Ihe quints outgrow the need for extraordinary precautions I made necessary by their premature birth, the need for expert advice as to j their training became apparent. This I advice was sought and obtained from | the University of Toronto's St. George^ School for Child Study. The results are described in a paper by the .school's director, Dr. W. l 1 ' Blatz, and his co-workers, D. A. Millichamp and A. L. Harris. Attitude of Serenity Called into consultation when the quints were about a year old, Dr Blat?. suggested thai their daily rou- line be based on these principles: A concepl of discipline which is educational rather than punitive. Development of responsibility by expecting children to look after then own needs as far as possible. Arrangement of physical surroundings so as to stimulate the quints sense of initiative and adventure. An attitude of serenity on the par' of the adults associated with the quints, accompanied by an adult example of pleasurable industry. | The children's sleeping routine was the. first to come up for consideration. I They had been getting about 16 hours of sleep daily—an hour and a half in trr>l>yriKlil. 11)37, NKA Servirc, Inc.)

Hitler Expects to Be WarlJmpif e" German Leader Believes He Can Settle Sino- Jap War BERLIN, Germany.—(£>)—Germany fully expects to steael a march on the Brussels conference, which it has declined to attend, and settle the Chinese-Japanese conflict herself. Preliminary informal requests from both China and Japan for Chancellor Hitler to act as umpire in their conflict were regarded by Germany so bona fide that Hitler, according to a source close to the chancellery, ordered Diplomat Joachim von Ribben- throp to return post-haste from Rome to undertake preliminary negotiations. Hitler Umpire? BERLIN Germany—0<P)—A trustworthy source close to the Reich chancellery reported Thursday night :hat Chancellor Adolf Hitler expected to become the umpire in the Chinese- Japanese conflict. Unofficial feelers put out to the Garman government by both Japanese and Chinese, he said, have convinced Hitler that mediation by him would be not only welcome but crowned with success. The informant said that offers conveyed partly through Oskar Trautmann, German ambassador to China, and partly through Japanese officials reached Hitler early Wednesday night. Hitler then commissioned Joachim von Ribbentrop, German ambassador to Great Britain, to hurry to Rome to conclude an Italian-German-Japanese pact agaiiwt the Communist International, it was said, and return to prepare for mediation. The German embassy in Rome said that an Italian-German-Japanese pact against Communism would be signed Saturday in the Italian capital. The source close to the chancellery added in substance: Hitler would probably accept the role of umpire only if he had definite assurances from both sides in the Far Eastern conflict that his rulings would be accepted. Assurances along that line from the Japanese were said to be in his hands. He expected from the Chinese a similar readiness.
