THREE ARE TWO: Today is the second birthday for the Comstock triplets - (left to right) Connie, Julie and Tim - and, while they seem a bit apprehensive about the photographer, things probably brightened up when it came time to eat their cake. The parents, Dr. and Mrs. Frank W. Comstock of 3139 Baylis Dr., Pittsfield township, have five other youngsters. The triplets weighed a total of almost 21 pounds at birth.

JUST A SPECIMEN: Many strange and wonderful things happened on the Darwin Downer farm, near Chelsea, last week and the view above is just a sample - just a smidgin, as the boys say - of what went on. Mr. Downer is shown holding one set of the six sets of lamb triplets which were born during the tremendous re-storking of his sheep herd. Six sets of lamb triplets are a lot of potential chops, but they only constituted only the first paragraph of the story. There were also 102 sets of twins. Mrs. Dionne, the thing seems to be catching.
