Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1962, Abilene, Texas -WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 107 ABILENE, TEXAS, MONDAY OBER 1, PAGES IN ONE SECTION PAGE ONE 173123 Rece Miss Kelli Ann Hagae was born Friday at Hendrick Me- morial Hospital. To be precise about it, KeUi Ann was born in Hendrick Me- morial Hospital somewhere be- tween the second and third floor. In the passenger elevator. And she. Mother Vickie Ma- gee, Father Terry Magee, Grandparents Glen and Lottie Nealeigh, and assorted nurses, receptionists and doctors are all doing fine, thank you. Even the police who tried to help but didn't. Everybody's doing fine even If plans for her arrival, care- fully made as are plans 'or such arrivals, didn't quite work out. Thursday was the second birthday of Kelli Ann's brother, Timmy, and Kelli Ann's mother was busy with the assorted ac- tivities which go with the cele- bration of a second birthday. Friday morning Kelli Ann made known her intentions of arrival and by mid-day she was becoming insistent Her father called the doctor's office and understood someone to say they should go there. Father and .mother got in a hurry. Timmy was dropped off at his grandparents' beauty school and salon at 1357 Butternut. Everybody was getting fa more of a hurry. Someone called the police for escort. Watch for a '61 Chevrolet rushing north on Butternut, po- lice were asked. But Terry and his very ex- pectant wife have a '61 Corvair. "Police couldn't have caught me Terry says. Escort or not, he made ft across town .to the doctor's of- fice in the Professional Build- ing on N. 19th in right good time. At the Professional Building nobody could put hands instant- ly on a wheelchair. Terry picked up his wife and started in. They met people who made an instant and obvious decision. Better go to the hospital which was, fortunately, near at hand. Back to the car a reception- 'ist helping Terry, the about-to- be-at-any moment parents rushed. Terry took a direct route to the hospital emergency en- trance. Across curbs. The hospital, alerted to the emergency, had a stretcher and staff members at hand. Persistent Kelli Arm had made up her mind. She was ar- riving, ready or not Into the basement and onto the passenger elevator went Vickie, Terry and the assorted attendants they had by now col- lected. But no doctor. He was some- where else busily trying to find them. Before the elevator door closed up walked a distin- guished-looking fellow, a strang- er to the Magees. No stranger, however, to the hospital folk. He was warmly welcomed. He has presided over many such an event as was now happm- ing. So Dr. No. 2 joined the con- gregation in the elevator. By the time the elevator reached the OB floor and the anxious Dr. No. 1 then was this extra passenger. Kelli Ann, 6 pounds, 10 ounces.
