He is an ordained Anglican minister and a quali- fied school teacher. KINGSFORD, Mich. (AP) There are four brothers in this ittle Upper Michigan town who aren't nearly as excited about Christmas as they are about Disney World. Tliey might go there. But not f they have to wait much onger. There's Robbie Tauschcck, 15, who has been in a wheel chair ;or about as iong as he cares to remember. First he had trouble walking. Now lie can't move. There's Joey, 12. He's in a wheel chair too. He went to a icalth camp for a few weeks. ie couldn't walk when he came Mine. But he can still move. So can Billy, 3. He hasn't Ken in a wheel chair long. But he will be. And there's his brother Paul, who steers him around the liv- ing room. It's fun to play with a wheel chair when you're a five- year-old boy bursting with en- ergy. Paul is too young to know that in two or three years he will start spending the rest of his life in a wheel chair. He Ls too young to realize that because he walks funny now, the day is coming when he won't walk at all. Or raise his arm. Or hold up his head. HAVE FATAL DISEASE Robbie, Joey, Billy and Paul have muscular dystrophy, a mysterious, crippling and fatal disease that usually preys on children. But rarely does it strike four children in one fam- ily. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Taus- check have two other children, Louis, 13, and Peggy, 11, who show no symptoms of the dis- ease their brothers inherited. There is little pain and the boys seldom complain. They joke and tease and laugh and argue like brothers do. The boys used to go to school, but the only teacher of the handicapped quit. So now a teacher comes to the house four tours a week. The boys look forward to her visits. It breaks the monotony. People have suggested putting the children in a special home. "But wo arc all they said Mrs. Tauschcck. "They have no real life of heir own. I'm glad we've got hem. We'll take good care of Somebody else might not." VORKS 85 HOURS WEEKLY Her husband works for a tire company here. Last week he put in fr> hours. He'd like to spend more time with his fam- ly, and there's i. lot of work left >n the house he's been building j or five years. He works twice as long as most men because he needs the money twice as badly. It isn't that medical expenses i a v e been overwhelming. There's really nothing a doctor or medicine can do for the chil- dren. Tlie Muscular Dystrophy As- sociation supplied the three wheel chairs and a hydraulic The hospital beds used by ;wo of UK boys had belonged to other muscular dystrophy pa- ,ients. But just providing for six chil- dren is a burden. The Tauschccks had lived in a three-room house. They needed something bigger, with one ;loor. They finally bought a pre- fabricated home, and had to wait until they could afford a furnace before they moved in. Three wheel chairs won't fit In a car, so Tauscheck had to buy a small van truck.

They take time and money. Tauscheck has nei- ther. He can't afford to go to Dis- ney World, either, but the chil- dren want to go. It's all they've Ulkcd about for a year. So last July Tauscheck bought a IftfiO Chevrolet, 60-passenger school bus for The engine gave out before he got it home. He replaced the engine. This winter, if he can scrape up the money and the time, he will convert the bus to a home on wheels. It's the only way Rob- bie, and Billy will be able to get to Disney World in Flor- ida." If all goes well, he told thorn, maybe they can leave in late February. The children have been told they can't have much of Christ- mas if they want to go to Dis- ney World. They understand. Christmas comes every year, but chances to go to Disney World do not.
