Small wonder that when he came .

The players stand In a circle tuual distances apart and throw the bail
fiom onto to the other around the circle as rapidly as possible. If a
hild mLsscs the ball he must remain as though turned to stone in the
position In which he dropped Ihe ball. The "siatuc" must remain thus until
the lam person to miss lias thrown tho ball Into the air and caught .it ten
t.mes. It Is lots of fun to see who can stand still the longest, Indeed some of
the attlludea of the players are so funny that the other statues almost lose
their balance laiiRhlng at them. Try this game and see what good sport It Is.
Another game lhat Is' lots of fun Is called "Kgg Hat"' In this game the
boys (or ihe girls) place their caps In a straight row, preferably against a
fence, slightly tilted so that the ball can be thrown Into them. Then the
player stand In a row a short distance from the hats. The Jlr.it boy takes
the ball and towes It Into one of Ihe huts. If It lands true the other players
scatter and the boy into whose hat the ball has been thrown rescues It aad
throws It at one of the players W-ho ID his turn throws It Into another hat.
If the bejr throwing Ihe ball at another player, misses him, a small pebble is
placed in his hat as a bad mark, and when any player misses so often that
he has as many stones In his hat as there are players he must stand a short
distance from the other players, who each in turn throw the ball at him.
Then the game starts all over again. A soft rubber ball should be used in
this game. ' . '
