ALLAN R. DAFOE Dtysirliin to the Oionne —Quintuplets . i •• ;•• (Copyright. 1938. by NBA Service) CALLANDER, Out., May 26.— The Dionne Quintuplets are 4 years old (actually they will cele- brale their birthday on May '28) and it is time thai I, who brought them into the world and have watched over their welfare since, give to their millions of friends a picture of the girls as they are today, and-at (lie same time an accounting of my stewardship in pnarding the lives and heallh of the famous babies. . .^fj As a preface to any account of the development of the Quintuplet!;, it must be realized that they began lite under tremendous dis- [Hlvanlaee.s imposed by multiple birth which cnme two months loo soon. It was in all truth a modern miracle—first, that the five girt were horn (for the odds are 57000.000 lo 1 against such births) an:i second, that they survived (for in no oilier of the CO quill- luulct births recorded in medics' history has the set remained unbroken for more than 50 minutes) And now. as they begin the fifth year of their lives, a third moderr miracle is taking place—and to t medical man it is'perhaps more miraculous than those of theii birlh am! early survival. For the Quints not, only are making tremendous strides toward overcoming their disadvantages and achieving the norm for their age, but in some phases of development they have even surpassed Ihe noun. Tl'rivins; as 4-Year-Olds Consider first the matter of size. The average weight at birlh for female babies in Sick Children's Hospital. Toronto, is a little under eight pounds each. On the second day of life for the Quints, the combined weight of all five was only 13 pounds and 6 ounces. A few days later their combined weight had decreased to less than 1C pounds. Marie weighed only one and one-half pounds on that day. Only an inherent vitality and kindly Providence—aided by medical science and skilled nursing- kept the little girls alive through those first dark days. And yet we find that on their third birthday, just a year ago. the Q"lntup!els had overcome their ter- rl'-'le handicap of underweight and had even surpassed the norm for their age. Normal weight at'3 years Is 30 pounds 5 ounces. Our babies' average weight at that time was Belief Measure Sidetracked To Give It Right of Way WASHINGTON, May 20. (UBI— Majority Leader Alben W.
