They were not told immediately. Both had been in a near shock ! status at times during the niphl. hospital spokesmen said, and had i been given sedativs in an effort to ease their nerves. The last baby to die was the fourth born. The physician who made the last desperate effort to save the baby was Capt. William D. Munroe who had been on duty since 11 p.m. Tuesday. He had worked almost constantly on the one child throughout the long night. Four of the five toy-like girls died within 9'/2 hours of their birth Tuesday. Capt. William D. Munroc, pediatrician on duty, said at- 1 a.m. that the diagnosis then for Baby D "is guarded and the outlook is not good for the surviving child." He added .that he is "not' very hopeful" that the baby would survive. Doctors warned from the first that the babies' chances of survival were slim. The births, a 42-million to one medical rarity, represented the third set of quintuplets in United States medical history and only the 47th in all recorded annals. They were three months premature. Baby A weighed 1 pound 9 ounces, B weighed 1 pound 13 ounces, C 1 pound 8'/2 ounces, D 1 pound J3 ounces and E 1 pound 13 ounc- es. Baby D, the strongest, was weighed several hours after her birth. The others, because of their condition, were not weighed until after their deaths. Spokesman at Lackland Air Force Base Hospital told newsmen that everything that medical science can do, including artificial respiration, is being done to save 'V remaining baby. have said lots of prayers," the youthful appearing, crew-cut flying navigator told reporters after the first baby died. "My wife has, too, and it has done lots of good before and now." Hannan interrupted a news conference to go to his wife's room on the third floor of the hospital when the death of the second baby was announced. The mother, joyous at the first news of the quintuplet births, was reported doing well. Her husband described her to newsmen as a short hair." He said she was about ft-foot-3 in heighth and weighed about 120 pounds. The Hannans were childhood sweethearts at a Catholic school in Taylor, Tex., before their marriage there Sept. 7, 3953. The couple has two sons, Rooert, 5, Pat 4. They had spent more than two years in Japan before returning to the United States Aug. 1, 1959. Hannan told reporters he and his wifp hoth had hoped for a girl uv to his wife's hospital room after the births, she smiled at him and said, "Well, you wanted a girl and now' you've got five?" He said he kissed her for each of the newly born quints. physicians said the babies' color and breathing were good but that they had not had a chance to develop fully. . The world's only living qumU are the Diligentis of Buenos Aires, Argentina, who celebrated their 16th hirfhdav last July 15.
