    Background: Quadruplets in Massachusetts: even though two boys and two girls born March 29 to Mr. and Mrs. Raymong Feyre of Holyoke, Massachusetts, USA, arrived seven weeks too soon, gynaecologists Dr Henry Burhardt said the chances of survival for the four babies was extremely encouraging.

    Film shows the quadruplets in incubators at the Providence Hospital, Holyoke, and proud father, R. Feyre, visiting his wife.

    Dr Bronos - who delivered the babies - said the question of whether the two boys and the two girls were identical twins could not be determined for a long time. He said the conditions of each infant was equally good at birth.

    By mid-afternoon that day, all the babies had their own names. Baby A, weighing 3 pounds, 11 ounces, was named Margaret Mary; Baby B, 3 pounds, 5 ounces, became Michael James; Baby C, 3 pounds, 9 1/2 ounces, will be christened Maureen Ann; and Baby D, 3 pounds, 13 ounces, will be William Francis.

    The overwhelmed parents were later presented with a handsome bronze trophy symbolizing "achievement and victory".
