Abstract
The long-time photometric surveys in a few young open clusters allowed to identify the light variability in stars located between the well defined  Scuti variables and Slowly Pulsating B-type stars (Mowlavi et al, 2013, 2015). The period of these changes is in the range of about 0.1 - 0.7 [d] corresponding to the frequencies of about 1.4 - 10 [d-1]. Several objects of this type were suggested also from the analysis of the Kepler data (Balona et al. 2015a). Assuming the pulsational origin of this variability, we test a few hypotheses. Because all these open clusters are very young, we consider only the ZAMS models with the metallicity Z=0.015.
