The Abernathy twins don't do tricks with mirrors, although, if they hadn't know better, their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Abernathy might have thought so last week. Bob who was a basketball star at Springfield High school, was home on furlough this week, left at 4:30 a.m. Sunday and at 5:15 Bill walked in for his furlough. They finally got to see each other however, when Bob found out that he had an extra day added to his time at home and came dashing back to see his twin. (Leader & Press, Springfield, MO, Tuesday, April 20, 1943, p. 12, Col. 3, Our Sons in the Service)
