TOU ONTO Dionne quintuplets saluted Queen Elizabeth Monday with five moist kisses in one of the strangest audiences ever granted by British monarchs The queen forgettingroyal custom anil tradition leaned over and put her arms around each of the Dionne children and kissed them back The audience took place in the drawing room of the lieutenant governors quarters in the parlia ment building The quintuplets were dressed in anklelength court dresses of and wore little white poke bonnets Dr Allan R Dafoe physician and guardian of the quints came to the royal audience fearing that at least one of the little girls would stand on her head seize the kings gloves or otherwise behave as 5 year old children do He could have forgotten his worries The quints did swell They had been carefully schooledin the technic of mak ing curtsies No one had an ticipated they would put their arms around the queens neck and kiss her That was their own idea They walked up tothe queen put their arms around her neck and one by one kissed her Per sons in the room said the queen was deeply touched by that and swiftly kneeled and embraced and kissed each of the children Meanwhile King George VI of Great Britain and the dominions beyond the seas was the forgotten man in the midst of all this fem inine affection Yvonne Dionne decided she would fix up that situation She ran away from the queen and went to where the king was standing Without so much as a by your leave sire she took hold of his hand and grinned at him The Icing stooped over and whispered something to Yvonne Then they both laughed their heads off at their private joke Marie Dionne decided that her sister was having too much fun with the tall man in the blue sailor suit so she ambled over and handed the king a small bouquet The rest of the quints gave their bouquets to the queen The 19 minute ceremony opened with all the quints standing in line Dr Dafpe wearing formal morning attire that seemed a little tight in the seams presented the children one by one Each stepped forward put her right foot behind her left and made a neat curtsey Once that formality was out of the way the quintstook charge of the situa tion themselves Cecile was one to think up the queen Shejust walked across the room and did it As soon as ner sisters saw what was they too were thronging around the queen schambling to see which one could lass her first The queen loved it The king and queen will carry back to London with them five mementoes of this visit Each of the quints gave them an auto graphed photograph with their names scrawled on them in large childish letters In turn the king and queen gave each of the quints little blue reefer coats and announced they were gifts fromprincess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret who are wait ing eagerly in London fornews of the Dionnes For a time it seemed thatOliva Dionne and his wife were to be1 ignored in all the excitementover the quints but they too1 were presented to the king and queen The queen and Mrs Dionne conversed inFrench and they dis cussed asubject that all women like to talk children ThequeentoldMrs Dionne about the two princesses in London The queen and Mrs Dionne

trimmed with blue fox fur at the collar cuffs and hem and that was sufficiently different from Mrs Dionnes situation Daonrres of I powder blue crepe with in verted pleats The kingwore the undress uni form of an admiral of the British navy Dionne appeared in an ordi nary business suit and seemed perfectly at ease during a brief cliat with the king The quintuplets were dressed in identical gowns of white or gandy which dropped to their ankles They had on Avhite lace mittens that stretched all the way to their elbows and their poke bonnets sat far enough back on their heads for their brown hail to peep out They were allowed only one variation from identical dress each was allowed to wear her fa vbrite flower in herv hair Marie chosenyellow Annette green Ce cilie blue Emilie rose and Yvonne
