New Hampton Twins Sally and Susan Murphy, first children born to Mr and Mrs. Gerald Murphy of New Hampton, are shown here at the age of a few weeks. Sally had two teeth at the age of 13 days. that she occasionally runs her tongue over the space in a caressing manner. They occupy a bed 54 inches long and 30 inches wide, they are placed beside each other the width of the- bed. The most frequent question asked parents of .twins is an erroneous one. "Twins seldom cry at the same time." If they io,- they are fed, providing: that is the cause. Start Using G. Murphy Twins Have a Gay Life M a d e Big Gains in Weight as They Grew. NEW HAMPTON--Sally and usan Murphy, twin daughters xrn to Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Murphy here on Jan. 25, now veigh 10 pounds 12 ounces and pounds 15 ounces when they Â·ere three months old Satur- ay. At birth they weighed 4 ounds 4 ounces and 3 pounds 5 l / 2 ounces, respectively. The babies were nearly a month old before being dismissed from the hospital. When ismissed they weighed '5 ounds 9 ounces, Sally coming ome nearly a week before Susan. Until they were 10 weeks d the temperature in the room where they were kept never dropped below 70 degrees. In order -to get their full feeding at the hospital they were fed with a tube until a week before being brought home. Were Bottle Babies. Both babies are bottle babies, being fed a prepared food which is mixed with milk and water. Both of the babies can now be given orange juice with a spoon. They apparently enjoy getting the juice in that manner as they smile and sometimes gurgle. This is the enjoyable part for their parents, a smile from a baby being worth a day of caring for them. With a baby in the house every parent knows that every day is wash day but under the directions from the hospital the washing for twins is not much more than with one baby. They have only been out in an automobile three times but their mother has a new baby buggy and is taking them for an outing on their third month birthday. Comparing them with other babies born at the same time their proud parents find that they have gained twice as much weight as the other aabies. She Didn't Mind. The two teeth that Sally had were pulled out when she was 18 days old but she did not seem to mind. But it is noticeable r mgerprmt for Babies Found Useful in Event of Kidnaping for Identification. Nearly 7,000 sets of fingerprints of babies and children are on file in the civil list of the federal bureau of investigation in the department of justice at Washington. They are there to be used in case of kidnaping-, accident, mistaken identity or for any other emergency "that may arise in which certain identification is needed. And because fathers and mothers are beginning to recognize the value of such protection, this file of fingerprints-the only feature of a ' child which docs not change with growth--is increasing rapidly. Not Only Object. Most parents have a false sense of security in the belief that they are not rich enough for kidnapers to be tempted to pack their children as victims. Â· Tell the Kiddies Too!-- Cleanliness -- hygiene -- pride in appearance -- are all a part of the child's education. In this the modern dry cleaning plant . . plays an important part. When you think of cleaning for the kids, think of MARSHALL SWIFT--Quality cleaning-reasonably priced. Phone 788 or 789 But ransom is not the only object of kidnaping, as the records of the F. B. L will show. Of the 10 cases of children kid- naped during the past three years, five children were kid- naped for purposes .other than ransom. A 9 year old Negro child was stolen in Tennessee, assaulted and put to work in the cotton fields for the benefit of her kidnaper. In Oklahoma, a 13 year old nursemaid was forcibly taken by her employers to Arkansas, where she was rescued by her uncle. Another case, which, probably strikes nearer home for most, parents, was that of a little girl in a small town who was watching the performance of a trained goat in the street one day. A scissors grinder noticed her, forced her into his truck and took her to Texas before the authorities caught up with him. Not Preventive. Even being on relief is not a preventive of kidnaping-. In New York City--a three weeks' old baby in a destitute family was taken by a woman posing as a relief worker and turned over to a couple who tried to pass the child off as their own newborn infant. Still another case was that of an n year old boy stolen from an orphanage in Nebraska. Nor are small amounts of money scorned by the kidnapers. A 15 year old boy in a modest home in South Carolina was inveigled away by a phone call saying that a job was waiting for him. In this case the kidnaper intended to demand a mere $1,000 as ransom, but murdered his victim when the boy showed fight as he was being forced into a vacant house. Brief records these are--and brutal. But they are enough to show that the danger exists in all walks of life. The federal government is doing its best to stamp out kidnaping and the record of its "G Men" under the leadership of J. Â· Edgar Hoover, director of the F. B. I., is a proud one. Children Found Most Sensitive to Food Texture Are children sensitive to texture in their foods? Several studies at Iowa State college at Ames prove they are--they favor crisp textures. Some crisp food should be included in each menu. Mastication is difficult for some children and more than one chewy food on the menu will slow the process of eating. On the other hand a menu of soft, sloppy foods, as one pediatrician has called them, is unpopular with children. In planning meals for child:~en it is well to consider this iiile of three: In every meal, serve one crisp, one soft and one chewy food.
