Jaycees mark anniversary The Salina Jaycees will celebrate Jaycee Week, Jan. 19-25. The week has been set aside nationwide as a celebration of the beginning of the Jaycees in St. Louis in 1915, when founder Henry Giessenbier formed a young men's civic organization that in 1920 became known as the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce. In 1965 members of the organization changed the name to the United States Jaycees in order to avoid being confused with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Going into its 66th year, the U.S. Jaycees — a leadership training organization based in Tulsa, Oklahoma — has some 168,000 members in 6,500 American Communities. The Salina Jaycees, chartered 46 years ago, will mark the special week with a membership night at its regular meeting at 7:30 pm Jan. 22 at the Cavalier Club. On Jan. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Cavalier Court the annual Distinguished Service Awards banquet will be held. An outstanding young Kansan, young educator, young fanner and young public protector will be recognized from the community. Secretary of State Jack Brier will be the featured speaker. The Salina Jaycees is an organization for people between 18 and 35 years of age. New members are always welcome. New members bring new ideas on how to make our community and ourselves better. Call Paul McAtee, president of the Salina Jaycees, at 823-1517, for more information. At play Browning, Lederer win A four table Howell movement was played at the Monday Night ACBL club.

Seott Wllllami Doubling up in the Tescott School's kindergarten class are, from left, brothers Justin and Ryan Davis, identical twin sisters Jeana and Teana Nelson, identical twin sisters Summer and Marta Lee, and first cousins Rhett and David Larson, all crowding under a play area of their classroom. Tescott teacher seeing double By JESSICA CARD Staff Writer TESCOTT — It is not surprising that Tescott's grade school has 16 kindergarteners. What is unusual is that four pairs of students — half the class—are related. Jeana and Teana Nelson are identical twin sisters celebrating their sixth birthday today. Summer and Marta Lee, 5%, are also identical twin sisters. Ryan Davis, 6, and Justin Davis, 5, are brothers. David Larson, 6, and Rhett Larson, 5, are first cousins. Having two sets of identical twins in the same class could cause some confusion for their teacher, Lee Wesley, but she comes to class prepared. "Teana has a very definite cowlick. That's how I tell them apart," Wesley said. "The Lees come closer to getting mixed up. They're mischievous enough. Today in gym class they switched their shoes and the teacher was calling them by the wrong name.'' "I look right away to see where they sit and what they have on. They're all at different tables, in the beginning, to tell them apart. It helped to begin that way so that they are not dependent on each other." Wesley noted that it is common practice in larger schools to separate brothers and sisters in the same class, but that solution isn't practical, in a small school-like Tescott's. The closest alternate school would be Bennington, 17 miles away. "It's worked out fine this year. They've been no problem," Wesley said. "They'll have to stay together here unless one would get retained or something." They like each other and play together but none of them are dependent on each other. They have their own friends. "I think that's unusual," Wesley said. Lee Wesley During the day they have a 20-minute recess and a 30-minute period in a learning center. "Very seldom are they together. When they get ready to go home they want to make sure they're together." "They never gang up and aren't really rivals. Their work is different. There is more of a feel of sympathy toward the other if one doesn't do as well." The twins I can tell apart because of their personalities. Teana and Marta are a little more outgoing. "I don't think they try to be different they just have different personalities. They get a little agitated when they get called by the wrong name by other children in the class." They get a lot of attention from the older children. "The best way to handle it is not to think of them as being twins. They are two different people in your classroom," Wesley said. Brothers Ryan and Justin Davis were born 11% months apart. Justin could have waited another year to begin school but their mother wanted them together, an arrangement which has worked well, Wesley said. The Larson cousins were born seven months apart. Leenders on dean's list Kathleen Leenders, daughter of Theodore and Mary Lou Leenders, Salina, has been named to the dean's list at Bethel College, North Newton, for the fall 1985 semester. In order to qualify for the dean's list a student must earn a grade point average of 3.7 or above. Leenders is a senior at Bethel. Shaver a KU senator More than 50 University of Kansas students were elected to one-year terms in the KU Student Senate in balloting Nov. 20 and 21. Among the new senators elected is Tom Shaver, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Shaver, 405 E. Park Lane. Shaver, a junior, represents the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
