Nurse Lei'oux Describes Intimate Episodes . Lives of Dionnes in E 1) 1 T O K'S N 0 T E : Miss Yvonne I.crou.v, writer of the two stories of which this is the lint, has been more constantly witli the Dionne quintuplets Mian anyone else. She was their first nurse, and, except fur brief periods, she has lived with them ever since. Her picture of the collective and individual traits of liic children is the next best thing: to an intimate visit to the nurseyy. BY YVONNE LEUOU.K Wiitlen for NEA Service and ... . ... The Courier News Copyright, 1937, NEA. Service, Inc. ! The Dionne quintuplets 'were exactly 34 months old on Easter Sunday. , Nearing their ' third birthday, their development is such that Easter this year began to impress itself on them as a religious feast day as well as a springtime holiday. They have now mastered the Sign of the Cross so as to perform it uniformly, and the days are gone when their tiny hands strayed anywhere from chin to ears in the hand-to-forehead movement, and' anywhere from collarbone to shoulder-blades in the lateral movement. . Prayers are still short, of course, and consist most of an old French religious lullaby "Petit Jesus, bonjour!" But there is far less tendency today to kneel and then quickly relapse Into a squat, which was the rale earlier. Cecile and Emilie usually appear to be Ihe most pious at their devotions. The others still occasionally allow their attention to wander !rom the picture of Jesus before them. Taking Their Medicine In every other way, too, their development is becoming more marked. They know their own names, and know each other apart. If one of the nurses looks at Emilie and says, "You are Annette!" she will promptly respond "No, I'm Ernilte!" Though they are never, phys, Ically punished, the children all | understand quite well what it is to bo Chad," that is, quarrel, act silly at table, refuse to lie quietlj during rest periods, or otherwise disturb the others. They know the penalty, which Is to be placed alone in the correction room, a small room plainly and safely furnished, until they arc ready to abide by the rules cr.ce again. One day Emilie looked at me then at Cccile who wouldn't play with her. Then Emilie stoopco over, bit Cccile on the back, ant readily offered me her hand, indicating that she was ready to gi to the correction room for he • penance. There is no "bad girl" of th quintet, and trips to the corrcc lion room arc about evenly rtivirt cd. From tills you can see tha there is nothing "sissy" about th way the little girls are bein reared. They play just as frecl a ml often just as strenuously an roughly as any other childrei Jinny- arc the small quarrels an fights into which we nurses hai had to slep lo bring peace to 11 nursery.

To watch the development of the little girls has been a Joy, nnil as their third birthday nenrs, they are more than ever distinctly individual little ladles. NEXT: Strangers can't lell the lilllc Ulunnc. girls apart, but to Nurse Leroux, who has been wllli them from the first, Ihey arc distinct not only in appearance but in personal iralts, which she carefully describes.
