Photo caption: "Blaine (left) and Wayne Rideout, 16-year-old twins of Tuscola, Ill., who are rapidly coming into the spotlight of fame as running stars. High school juniors, they are in bed every night at nine o'clock, neither knows the taste of tobacco, they eat sweets and desserts only once a year - on Christmas, and they train daily. Fatherless since they were four years old they carry papers, mow lawns, and do any other odd jobs they can to aid their widowed mother and 13-year-old sister. Blaine, undefeated in the mile, holds the Illinois record for the event - 4:25.2. Wayne holds the half mile state record, 1:59.4."
