The quadruplets born to Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Ponder near here Monday night are the reason. Warnings cropped up yesterday tion. They had made their way a quarter-mile from tnc trapped streamliner by foot and by weasel and snowcat to a cleared highway. Then they were taken by automobile to a nearby lodge for warm food and treatment. ' · The passengers, stranded from Sunday noon until laic yesterday, hoarded the relief train at Emigrant Gap, about 150 miles north- cast of San Francisco. Broiled steaks and chicken were ready and free; it had been f r a n k - furters and beans for breakfast. Men peeled o f f three-day growths of beard. Women changed clothes. Many just slept. Others sat in the club car and reviewed their experiences. Doctor Praised Dr. Walter H. L. Rochll of Middletown, Ohio, wai praised by all: "Hc« saved our lives. Don't let him tell you he didn't." Roehll and four nurses, all passengers, treated some 60 persons overcome by fumes from a heating unit which was put into tcrv- ice after regular healing gave out Monday. Koohll's only comment was: "All I did was what I had to do." The nurses are Mrs. Anne Lincl- hlom of Beresford, S. D., who works at Modesto (Calif.) State Hospital; Helen Guerlz of San Francisco; Margaret Doonan of if anil Mrs. Ro collapsed after pear on a New York television show, "We, The People," Friday night. The women folks of Murfreesboro and nearby Nashville, Ait, got stirred up at that. They think the mother of the quods' a 38-year-old farm wife, ought to share some of. the limelight. Says Mrs. Joe Cooley jf Nashbille: "The ladies ot Murfreesboro are going to see to it that Mrs. Ponder Rets some recOBnition." A delegation of Murfreesboro women already has started a campaign to honor Mrs. Ponder. Mrs. Cooley planned to call her group together today. She called " "an np-in-anns conff-rcnee. Mrs. Cooley declined to disclose the plans'they have in mind for Ihe mother. She said the women of the two towns are "sort of put out" about the \vholc affair. To Fly To East ' The father, an unemployed farmer, was ready to board an j airplane at Texarkana, ArU., t o - j day for his flight to New York, j Representative T.iekctt ( D - A r k ) i and Dr. M. D. Duncan, who delivered the infants, also were to! make the trip. The doctor said he j was going along just for the ride, j Ponder spent yesterday sprue- j ing up for his trip tn the East.; He received a new outfit from j Murfreesboro merchants. He was to get a manicure but news photographers intervened. They took him to his four-room house where he, his wife, the quads an'l seven of their eight other children--all born separately--will live. Representative Tackett said he passed up an auto trip to Washington with his family "to help out a constituent." The infants, three boys and a girl, are in a hospital at Nashville, 20 miles southwest of here. The babies are reported in good shape. They arc in incubators and the public is not allowed to visit them. Mrs. Ponder is at the farm home of her mother-in-law near here. Her condition is good.
