Sportsman said the twins might enter the Millrose Games in Madison Square Garden, New York City. Feb. 6. But the coach plans to dcv.elop them slowly,' possibly with a view to having them nt their top for the 19-10 OVympIcs "I'm not going to see those two kids burned up by too much com, petition," he said.

Of the Rldeouts, commented: "It L? only natural that brothers should be bound by a strong bond of loyalty, especially if they have common birthdays, but I have never seen an association quite as unselfish and as sincere as this one.
