It has been diagnosed as a naevus tumor, probably not malignant, -which should yield readily,to treatment a little later when Marie is stronger and better able to undergo It.

CORBEIL Corbei!, Ontario, nearest town to (lie Dionne farm, and so small it hasn't even a "Main Street." The small white church with the dark cupola just to the right of the cen- T is that of the Rev. Daniel Kouthier. parish priest and advisor to the Dionnes. The stony ground in the farmyard in the foreground gives a clew to the difficulties that go with farming in this district, where Dionne has been able to make only a bare livins. It is on the edge of heav- iiy-wooded country, and is not highly productive land. MILK- AND A BROTHER (Copyright-, 1934. XEA Service. Inc.)

NEA Service,.Inc.) FOUR FATHERS Legally, the Dionne quintuplets now have four fathers, appointed as their guardians by the Ontario government. Left to right, they are Kenneth Morrison, Callander merchant and old friend of the Dionne family; Dr. A. R. Dafoe,' the physician who took charge of the multiple birth; Oliver Dionne, the quintuplets' grandfather; and ~VV. H. Alderson of the Canadian Red Cross. The swarm of promoters which immediately surrounded Dionne was so great that it was felt he would be unable to handle them without the'possibil- ity of some imposition that would handicap the future of the quintuplets. (Copyright, 133-1, XEA Service, Inc.) Danies Dionne only half understands why he had to go sfld. live with neighbors when five little sisters descended on him at once. He's only 2, and one of five other children of the Dionnes.

Marie, left, lies quietly, while Emilie, next, waggles her tiny fingers in some baby-dream. Cecile, center, opens her mouth wide as though in protest at being moved by the hand of Xurse De Kiriline, while Annette and Yvonne, right the stronger of the brood, take their ease in complete quiet.
