So spoke Richard Eife, a Philadelphia police detective sergeant, whose wife gave birth to quadruplets Friday night. Mrs. Eife, 34, gave birth shortly before midnight at Frankford Hospital. Doctors said the mother and the infants — two boys and two girls — were doing fine. Sgt. Eife, also 34, said, "Things will be unexpectedly crowded at the Eife home." In addition to the quadruplets, the Eifes have two sons and two daughters, ranging in age from 13 to 4. Dr. G. Herbert Moffses, who led the delivery team along with his associate Dr. Oliver S. Thresher, said the infants ranged in weight from 3 pounds, 7 ounces, to 4 pounds, 7 ounces. A team of obstetricians and 12 nurses assisted in the delivery. Mrs. Eife was hospitalized about a week in advance "as a precautionary measure." The other Eife children are Ricky, 13, Michael 9, Eileen, 6, and Denise, 4.

WILSON Ex-Rebel Soldier Killed In Dominican Gun Battle By ROBERT BERRELLEZ SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — A former rebel soldier was killed Friday night in a brief but sharp gun jattle between Dominican police and the armed escort for a former rebel official. The violence came after de- fated presidential candidate Juan Bosch said his party would contest some of the results from ast Wednesday's election but he avoided any direct reference to voting irrgularities. The gun battle took place in ront of the home of Hector Ar- sty, former Cabinet minister in tbe rebel government that wai dissolved after the April 1965 revolt. He was in the house when Kie shooting started bul disappeared later. The soldier who was killed in the battle was not identified Seven other ex-rebel troops and three civilians, one of them a 15- year-old girl, were arrested. The shooting touched off sporadic gunfire in other nearby areas but it quickly died down. National Police Chief Gen. De Jesus Morillo said there were no casualties among the police. Dominican troops from ttie nearby Ozama fortress in the heart of the city helped police by surrounding the block. The shooting started, Morillo said, when a police patrol was fired on as it passed Aristy's home. One of the former rebel soldiers, an ex-Dominican air force corporal, told newsmen the police came to the house, took "aggressive positions" in front of the house and fired at it despite protestations by .Aristy, who came out to tell them he had been authorized by the provisional government to have an armed escort. After tbe Aristy forces surrendered, the soldier said, "The police officers shoved and beat us with their gun butts." He said he didn't know where Aristy or other members of the escort went. The armed escort is one of the few ex-rebel groups allowed to have their own weapons. The soldiers are left over from last year's rebel movement which tried to reinstate Bosch as pres- 1962 but ousted a year later. Commenting on Wednesday's election, in which conservative Joaquin Balaguer beat him by 236,625 votes, Bosch said Friday night, that a commission of lawyers would gather evidence of fraud to back up his challenge to the results in some areas. Bosch's statement said the j challenge would be made "in all | those places in the country where there is proof of fraud." His broadcast added that in law "it is not enough to have reason, but proof of reason." « * * Bosch did not concede defeat but foreign observers and diplomats here said his announcement was a tacit admission of victory for Balaguer. It was believed that Bosch announced the challenge only because of pressure from more radical elements in his Dominican Revolutionary party. The final official tally gave Balaguer 754,409 votes to 517,784 for Bosch. Balaguer's greatest strength was in rural areas. Bosch won in the national district of Santo Domingo and its environs, 144,631 to 88,217. Rafael F. Bonnelly, the Kiird candidate, trailed with 45,073 votes in unofficial results. Balaguer's Reformist party triumph apparently carried over to the elections to the bicameral Congress. Preliminary reports showed Reformist candidates ahead in 17 of 22 provinces. Communists, crying fraud, sent small bands of agitators through downtown streets. Three demonstrators were slightly wounded in a clash with police. Bosch, a moderate leftist, urged his backers to be "calm and confident" until the investigation is completed. Official observers from 21 j Western Hemisphere nations [have deemed the elections fair land honest. * * * Balaguer was once president | under the late Dictator Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. Bosch was elected president in 1962 but was ousted the following year by a military coup. QUEEN OF THE TOWN — Charlotte Stivers (center) is the 1966 Steele Homecoming Queen.
