  • Description

    MONDAY APRIL 27 WAS HOME-COMING DAY FOR THE KIENAST QUINS. THE TWO BOYS AND THREE GIRLS WHO WERE BORN JUST OVER TWO MONTHS AGO AT LIBERTY CORNER, NEW JERSEY, WERE DECLARED FIT ENOUGH AND STRONG ENOUGH TO LEAVE THE HOSPITAL WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN UNDER CONSTANT MEDICAL SUPERVISION EVER SINCE THEY CAME INTO THE WORLD ON FEBRUARY 24.

    THE HOSPITAL DIRECTOR, DR. GILBERT MELLIN, SAID OF HIS CHARGES THAT THEY WERE "VERY ACTIVE, FAT AND PUDGY, ALERT AND RESPONSIVE BABIES". THE QUINS WHO WERE PREMATURE HAVE DOUBLED IN WEIGHT SINCE THEY WERE BORN. THEIR FIRST GLIMPSE OF THE OUTSIDE WORLD WERE THE PHOTOGRAPHER WAITING OUTSIDE THE HOSPITAL. BUT MOST OF THE TIME THE QUINS SLEPT QUIETLY THROUGH THE COMMOTION SURROUNDING THEIR DEPARTURE FROM THE HOSPITAL WHERE THEY WERE BORN AND WHERE THEY HAVE SPENT ALL THEIR LIFE SO FAR.

    A RESCUE SQUAD AMBULANCE, WITH POLICE ESCORT, DROVE THEM TO THE HOUSE WHERE THEY WILL JOIN THEIR FATHER AND MOTHER, MR. AND MRS. WILLIAM KIENAST, AND AN OLDER BROTHER AND SISTER. AND FOR THE QUINS A SPECIAL SEVEN-ROOM ADDITION HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE HOUSE, PUT UP FOR THEM SPECIALLY BY VOLUNTARY WEEK-END LABOUR BY LOCAL BUILDERS.
