    Twins! 
    • Florence did not know she was carrying twins, and when Allen, the first twin was born, he was small and needed an incubator. The doctor told John, the father, to get one so he drove to Decorah and picked one up. When he brought it in for Allen, he was told they needed a second one for a second baby boy, Arlyn. So he headed back to Decorah for a second one. He drove so fast, a hubcap flew off his vehicle and scared some cattle in a field, which broke the fence and got loose. Because of the urgency to get the incubator, he could not stop, but had to keep going.
