    Background: DOCTORS AT THE NORTHWEST GRACE HOSPITAL IN DETROIT WILL START TESTING TODAY TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE QUADRUPLETS, BORN TO MRS. JULIA ULLMAN (CQ) SUNDAY NIGHT, ARE IDENTICAL.

    THE QUADS, ALL GIRLS, ARE REPORTED DOING WELL THIS MORNING....EACH IN HER OWN INCUBATOR. MARION, FOUR POUNDS, TEN OUNCES, IS THE HEAVIEST. THE OTHERS ARE HELEN, MARTHA AND CATHERINE. MRS. ULLMAN SAYS SHE WANTS THE GIRLS TO HAVE INDIVIDUALITY. THAT, SHE SAYS, IS WHY SHE AND HER HUSBAND DECIDED ON UNRELATED NAMES. THERE ARE TWO OTHER CHILDREN IN THE ULLMAN FAMILY, AND 34 YEAR-OLD CHARLES ULLMAN, A CARPENTER FOR A DETROIT CONTRACTING FIRM IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE ROOM FOR EVERYONE IN THEIR FIVE-ROOM ONE-STORY RANCH HOUSE....IN ADDITION TO FEEDING AND CLOTHING HIS FLOURISHING FAMILY. HE SAYS NO FIRMS HAVE OFFERED ANY FREE MILK OR THE USUAL SIMILAR BONANZAS. BUT, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT: THE ULLMANS, SAYS HE, ARE "MIGHTY HAPPY" ABOUT THE WHOLE THING.
