Leader And Footer

_50 to 60 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

This is a leapfrog game. One player is chosen to be "back," and he
chooses a leader, generally the poorest jumper, and a "footer
best jumper. A starting or "taw" line is drawn on the ground and the
back stands with his side parallel to it. The other players line up in
single file at some distance, with the leader at the head and the
footer at the rear of the line. The footer dictates the way in which
the back is to be cleared and his distance from taw. For instance, he
may, having put a long distance between the back and the line, require
a run of a limited number of steps, or a hop and skip (specifying the
number), before the jump. The leader makes the first jump as
prescribed by footer, and the others, in turn, including the footer.
Any player failing in the feat becomes back. Any player who is
doubtful of success may call upon the footer to perform the feat. If
the footer fails, he becomes the back. If the challenge be
successfully met, the one making the challenge becomes back.
