The articles are based on scientific papers read before 300 scientists at a special meeting 1 in Toronto. Representative JACK WITT By BRUCE CATTON NEA Service Staff Correspondent TORONTO, Ont.—The Dionne quintuplets at last overcome the handicap of premature birth and are physically normal. They came into this world under appalling disadvantages, weighing about two and one-half pounds apiece and measuring hardly more than a foot from the crowns of their tiny heads to the curled tips of their toes. Today their 1 average weight is slightly above the average weight of a normal child of their age. Their height is a little under normal—but only a little. Their sturdy little chests exceed in measurements the chests of normal children of the same age. They have at last caught up with the procession. This news is revealed in a comprehensive study of the quintuplets' physical welfare, based on daily observations since the girls' birth, and compiled by Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe, the quints' physician, and his brother, Dr. William A. Dafoe of Toronto. The Excellent ResEults Dr. William A. Dafoe, prominent Toronto obstetrician and member of Clark county line to Junction 2-1. 3 miles gravel, good. Recently rcKravcl- cd. No. 55.

These charts, made up by Dr. William A. Dafoe of Toronto, h'rolher of the quints' physician, show how completely the five sistdrs have overcome the physical handicaps which were theirs at birth. Their weight record shows three of them above the normal (represented by the unbroken line); the height record reveals thit they have marlc equally rapid progress In this field also. , Sick Children, in Toronto, show that those first few months, when the flame of life was flickering uncertainly, the the faculty of the Toronto University quintuplets put on weight as fa s t as School of Medicine, has collaborated with his brother in the care of the quintuplets in a number of cases, and frequently discussed with him the outine which brought the quintuplets out of an unusually frail infancy into a robst and healthy childhood. That this routine has brought excellent resulets can be seen by a glance at figures about the sisters' weight and height. First, look at their weight. Figures compiled at the Hospital for the average nine-month female child weighs approximately seven pounds, two ounces, at birth. The heaviest of the Dionne quintuplets—Yvonne—came into this world weighing several ounces j less than three pounds; the tiniest of the five, Marie, weighed less than two ' pounds. i Glance, now, at the weight record as expressed in charted curves. From the first, the quintuplets gained in weight at a rate equal to the rate by which a normal baby gains. Despite I the almost unimaginable anxieties of ordinary girl babies do. Faster Than Normal Today three of the sisters—Yvonne, Annette and .Cecile—actually weigh slightly more than cirls of their age usually weigh. Emilie is just at the normal level; Marie, who started under the greatest handicap, is still approximately two pounds below normal. It is much the same in the matter of height. The normal girl baby is about 20 and one-quarter inches tall, at birth, the quintuplets were just about 13 inches. They gained in height, however, faster than ordinary children do; at the age of one year they had marie up all but about one and one-half inches of their deficiency, and at 18 months three of them were actually slightly above normal height. Today they are, roughly, about an inch below the normal height for girls of their age, with Yvonne coming the closest to normal and little Marie miss- ing it by the widest margin. The mollowing just compiled table gives the height and weight of the quints at the end of October, 1937, with the changes over the previous months:- Marie . .. Emilie ..

Marie 29Vi same Emilie 32 'A Cecile 32M; \'i Annette 33 % Yvonne 33 '/4 Special Senses Excellent Examination of tho quintuplets' special senses shows their cars and noses to be normal. With their eyes, the case is slightly less satisfactory. Yvonne, Annette and Cecile have eyes that are far-sighted but perfectly normal. Emilia has a little astigmatism in both eyes, but may never need to wear glases. fn the early btagcs she .showed a tendency to cross her eyes, but this had entirely disappeared by the time she was a year old. A slight inco-orclination of her eye muscles has also cleared up. Marie has a somewhat more pronounced inco-orclination of the eye muscles—he does not always use both eyes equally well in looking at things —but the doctors feel that this, too, can bo corrected. Tho girls' teeth wore definitely later than usual in making an appearance. Their first teeth came on the scene from three to seven months after the maximum time limit for normal children. The general alignment of teeth in all tl i; children is fj'Kid, the teeth are hard and free from decay, and from present iii.lic-.itioii.s none of the girls will need the- corrective services of an ortho- doiitist. At intervals, ever sini-o their birth, the quintuplets have- bi-'en given careful physical ex;iinJiuition.s. The one completed at the end of their third shows these findings: good general condition and Lulur, firm tissues, :lcar lungs, with abdomens, hearts iml nerve reflt-xus normal. Their .'jodies—build, posture, muscular and -;c;ny development—appear to be nor- nal. Tho End, Washington Co. (Continued from Page One) were guilty of first degree murder or some lesser degree.
