One of the two (he said he was Don) was asked to come to The News office to identify the above pair. Don (if it was) admitted afterward he couldn't tell himself from his twin in the photograph until he remembered on which side he stood when it was made. Both fine runners, the twins can be expected to do well in Saturday's regional track competition at Wines Field.
