By YVONNE I.EROUX Written for NEA Service One of the fascinating things about living with the Dlonne quintuplets is the opportunity it gives to speculate on ihe possible future that may He ahead of each. Of bourse it is all guesswork, for no actual career plans arc on fool for any one ol the quins, but. it is lun to guess. And, based on my c!ose observation of xheir developing characteristics. 1 believe: Cecile would make a good nun. Yvonne, a good housewife. Marie, a dancer or actress or something of the sort. Annette, a good business woman, lor she is shrewd. About. Emilie, I couldn't make a good guess as yet. As the children develop, their individual traits become more clearly marked almost every day. Contrasting- Moods Here fire the characteristics have observed which have led me to make the above guesses: EMILIE: She is the most pious of the group. She appears more concentrated in her affection for God just as in her affection foi psople. She takes life more seriously than the others, and sesm to love to look at pictures of Jesus Vet she is the most, mischievoii: of the group, playing little harm less jokes constantly. She has the most entrancing grin, and mak? one think of pixies or elves. She cries seldom, but. when she does it breaks your heart, she is so pa thetlc. That ear-to-ear grin stands ou in a face thai is heart-shaped h contrast lo the squarish laces o her sisters. She is small, only little larger than Marie. She love yellow dresses and clothing. Knowing full well our ru! against running to the dinin room at meal times, Emilie lovi to run in, whereupon she tun around of her own accord, look at the nurses, puts her hands be hind her back and goes back the storting-place,to walk in ver , ', "<-ry slowly. - ', '•, } Watches ,Over Sisters . .YVONNE: She imparts a fcelin that she' is older than the others though shs is now no bigger than Ceciie or Annette. She is the most maternal of the group, and likes' to Icok after and lake care of her sisters. She seldom gets into quarrels with any-of her sisters. She rims about w.ith a merry skip, and if almost always laughing. ' Yvonne just oozes charm, and is inclined to be a little bossy. It is because of this care.for the others and her interest in cleaning and straightening up things that I suggest she may be destined to be a housewife. . She resembles her mother, in appearance and expression, more than any of the others. Yvonne is the fastest talker and will be the most talkative as she grows older. Wins Her Point ANNETTE: I think Annette is the prettiest of the live. I can't say just why,.but she is. For one thing she has the prettiest teeth. They are a little more closely articulated than those of the others She hns the best features, and seems to know it, for she is a trifle vain. Her eyes dance with mischief, and she has a wicked little smile. While Yvonne is bossy in a good- nature'd way, Annette is bossy too. but more selfishly. She wants thing* done her own way. She always wants the best toys, and shrewdly ./ connives to get them away from r* - i her sisters. She goes after what she wants and jets it. That is why I suggest that she might well become a business woman. She seems to invite scraps and fights, nnd al- R. A. Green way, Dell, Plans to Increase Acreage This Year II. A.

Thoughtful, Resourceful CECILE: Though she is the quietest and most reserved ot Ihe children. Cecile looks much like Annette. she makes friends less easily, and gives her affections slowly But once she bestows them she is very loyal and cries bitterly when anyone she loves goes away. Siie likes to sing and hum. and has the best table manners of the group, but generally she goes her own way. She will play for hours with her doll and carriage, humming sollly as she wraps and unwraps the doll. She does many things on her owt initiative. For Instance, she wil put away her clothes and toys whei she hears the others told to do so knowing that she will also have to do It. She Is thoughtful, and I have seen her get a chair for the nurse without being told. These are the I characteristics on which I base my I thought that she would make a I good nun. I She likes green as a color, and' hates confinement. Once when one of the chairs broke and had lo be replaced by one without arms, she chose It at once. Now all the children have armless chairs.

She is especially iond.ol books. She, too, is most mischievous, nut can assume the most innocent expression when she is being :orrected. she loves to. put on a ?ly face and go about doing little 'bad" things. Although she is smaller than the! others, and looks exactly like * doll when she is scrubbed and brushed, she can do anything the Diners can do; climb as liijh. pull is heavy a load, or defend herself in scraps. I remember one day when Marie wanted one of Yvonne's Tovs She tugged at it until Yvonne fell to the floor, still holding fast to the toy. Then Marie proceeded to ill on Yvonne until siie got the toy. Of course the nurses made her give it back to discourage fighting. Marie's liair is the curliest, and she loves being cuddled. It is her fondness for dancing and her ability to assume that "Why, what can I possibly have done" expression that makes me think she migh some day turn to the stage or entertainment world. S-c is alrei quite a clown and entertainer. Though she is the smallest. Marie loves to eat. One day I. found her with her feet on thj tsble, the dessert plate between them. She was quietly consuming the last of Ihe dessert.

Miss Sothern verifies the wisdom of this preference, ' and ''so do Bother leading artists of the radio, stage, screen and opera. Their voices are their fortunes.
