The articles fire based on scientific papers read before Canadian and Anier- i* an scientists at a special meet- liij In Toronto. BY BRCF. CATTON -•VKA service Stall Correspondent fC"'ivriglit.,1937, NBA Sen-ice. Inc.) TORONTO, Orst.. Nov. 3. — The Kicnne quintuplets may look as inuth alike as five peas out of the . tame pod, but their personalities are already as different as Jive personalities can be. •nicy have the same heredity and lliey have been growing up in the same environment—but the result Is five utterly distinct little girls \\lio are already setting the patterns lor widely divergent character traits. If you wanted to characterize the girls briefly, you would do it about like this: Yvonne Is the motherly type, the most mature socially of the five. Annette is the social climber. Emille Is the happy-go-lucky .member of the crowd, willing lo rive and take on a 50-50 basis, She Is also the most self-sufficient. Cecile is the unknown quantity. Marie Is the baby of the family. Plain Common Sense These are not mere casual observations, bill the settled conclusions of science. They are expressed in a paper on the quints' social development written by Dr. W. E. Blalz, D. A. Millichamp and M. Clinvles. after these psychologists had spent two years observing tlie.qiiinls. During those two years the psychologists scrutinized the quints methodically to see just what Iheir social relations with each other were, The -way such an Investigation is' carried oh looks like hocus-pocus, at first glance, but when -you strip it of Its 1 solemn verbiage il,'turns out to be^plnm common sense. For instance, suppose that a study is being made of you and inc. I offer you a; cigaret; the iwycliologisi ' noles lhat I have made un "initiated-lo" contact. If you turn away and pay no attention. It's no dice; but if you take it, you ar? credited with a "responsc-lo" contact, and if you say. "Thank von, eld-timer." I am' .credited with a "frcni". contact. See? Watched Them Solemnly That was the way the psychologists worked with the quints. Sometimes they 'wouli isolate two sisters in ii play pen and make, a note of every contact between ' the two; .sometimes they turned all fivelcnsc together and sat there, solemnly, pencil in hand, to write down what happened. Here is a sample from iheir record: "Annette runs and pushes Cecile, who apparently ignores this overture." (Scored as a contact between the two. initiated by Annette.) "Then Annette pushes Yvonne, who pushes back in retaliation." (Recorded as n contact belv.esu Annette and Yvonne, initiated by Annette h n d responded to bj Yvonne.) "Then Annette pulls off Yvonne': )i"i.- ribbon, causin? Yvonne to cry, I whereupon Annette hands back tlie ribbon which causes Yvonne to stou crying and look at it." (Annette is credited with one "initiated-to" contact and one "respoivse-to" contact: Yvonne gets credit, for Uvo "response-to" contacts.) From all of this the psv.hologist makes no a b»x score, thus: An!•"'!•>• four "to-contacts" ilhre e initiated, one responsel; three-"from" co^ta^ts (all responses). Cec'le: one "from" contact (from Annette!. Yvonne: three "to" contacts (responses —- to Annette); three . "from" contacts (from Annette). Which !e:iv(. s Annette, for (he moment, leading the league The Way It Adds V\i .. All Of this may look Just a iillle odd, to the layman; but when such methodical records are .kept over a period of two years, and arc duly tabluated and interpreted, you do -' get an accurate picture of personality- growth and development such as could be obtained in no other wav. The psychologists showed, fcr instance, that Emilic lias about' an equal number of "to" and "from" contacts; that is. she receives the overtures of her sisters just about as often a she makes overtures to them. Annette and Marie, on the other hand, have considerably more "to" contacts than "from" contacts— which is to say that tney make overtures to their sisters oftener than their sisters make overtures to them. Cecile and Yvonne. hor.-ever, Emillo. the happy-^o-lucky quint who doesn't mind playing by herself, is all set to have a one-girl ton puny.

That is just another way of saying that Miss Yvonne is more'socially mature; she remains on the ouislde of tilings, iiivcr. thrusting herself forward. but/Is nhvays ready to respond - fact that Yvonne .Is the most sought-after of the entire group—and Marie the least.

They watch her far more j than she watches any of them. Little Marie doc.5 more mUching than any of the others do—and gets watched the least. Marie has been handicapped physically, and hence —from her sisters' -standpoint--lias been the least worth watching. All of this is interesting to the general public, but it has been even more interesting to the psychologists. Far here are five children who, from the circumstances ot their nfrtri and rearing, might be expected to be very much alike; yet the FIRST and ALWAYS at HOTEL IffiLBCPRNE *A nights rest that's peaceful end refreshing-a pleasantatmoi- phere in the lobby-the warm glow (.hat good Food brinqs- the plecsant reaction that low prices give - these are the things tot make the Melbourne tbe choice oFevery.expericnced trnveler, J.K.
