moderate size, half of one color and half of another.

Appoint leaders, who choose the children for their respective

sides. There should be an even number on each side. The opponents face

each other, with the leader at the head, who has the bag of one color

1st, with right hand,

2d, with left hand,

3d, with both hands,

4th, with right hand over left shoulder,

5th, with left hand over right shoulder.

them back, observing the same rules, until all have reached the


The side who has passed them back to the leader first, and has done so
