Have you ever rushed up to one
of your best friends with an en-
thusiastic greeting only to be si-
lenced by a puzzled look and a
weak "hi"?
Look again. There is a good
chance that you weren't address-
ing your friend at all, but his iden-
tical twin. One of the most com-
mon complaints of look-alikes is
that acquaintances are constantly
accusing them of "snubbing,"
when in reality the friends had
been trying to get the attention
of their doubles.
Norman and Bob Gersabeck,
juniors from Roseville, Mich., look
so much alike that they have this
trouble constantly. The Gersa-
becks said some of their fraternity
brothers have not yet learned to
tell them apart. In fact, they
found out a few days ago that one
pledge was surprised to learn there
were two of them.
Identification Method
When they were babies, their
mother found a novel and accur-
ate method for keeping them
straight in her mind. One day she
accidentally picked Bob with a
pin, and from then until the little
wound healed she had a fool-proof
way of recognizing him.
Another pair which the reporter
found it impossible to distinguish
between insisted that they didn't
look very much alike. Shirley and
Phyllis Abbott said that once a
year their uncle, who claims they
are the image of each other, takes
a picture of them, posing them
carefully to bring out the likeness.
One of them stated (the reporter
wasn't sure which), "The funny
thing about it is that when he
shows the pictures to his friends,
no-one will believe that we are
Two brothers who never have
this trouble are Jack and Bert
Wardrop, of Motherwell, Scotland.
Jack once had pneumonia. When
the men came to take him to the
hospital, he and Bert were asleep
in the same bed, and had somehow
rolled over and switched sides.
They were entering the hospital

room when the doctor said the boy
they had brought wasn't sick;
they realized then that they had
brought Bert instead of Jack.
Dress Alike
Emily Hauss has trouble con-
vincing her friends that she has
a twin brother, because she and
Quincey look so little alike. When
they were in grade school they
sometimes would dress alike, a sub-
ject for much teasing from friends.
Once Quincey fell and caught
his leg in a grating walking home
from school. While Emily tried to
help him, her leg got caught in
the same way. School-mates quick-
ly countered, saying, "Can't one
twin do anything at all without
the other one copying him?"
Most of the twins interviewed do
not dress alike now that they are
in college.
