Mrs. Jerome Garcia and some of her children in their Logan Heights home, March 1960. "She was glad her latest child was a boy," according to our local daily. "She is the mother of 15 girls and only 8 boys."

"But what is all the fuss about?" she asked the reporter. "After all, this is not an especially big family where I come from. And we are all happy and healthy. Sure we have our troubles, feeding and clothing all of us. But one more won't matter."
