FOOT AND A HALF

This is a game of "Leap Frog" also called "Par" or "Paw." One of the
boys is chosen "down," who leans over and gives a "back" to the rest,
who follow leader, usually the boy who suggests the game. He will
start making an easy jump at first and over "down's" back, then
gradually increase the distance of the point at which he lands, and
each of those following must clear this line or become "it"
themselves. The leader must also surpass his previous jumps each time
or he becomes "down" himself. In this way the smaller or less agile
boys have a more equal chance with the stronger ones.
