Body Guard

A small space is marked off at one end of the ground as a base or goal.

One player is chosen to be the chief, an important personage requiring

two body guards. The game starts with these three players in the goal

and the balance of the players at large. The three come forth, and the

two players who act as body guards clasp each other by the hand, and

preceding the chief as a shield, endeavor to prevent the other players

at large from tagging the chief. The chief himself may avoid being

tagged by moving around the guards. Whenever a guard succeeds in

tagging a player, the chief and his guards return home, whereupon the

player tagged changes places with the man who tagged him. Any player

succeeding in tagging the chief becomes the chief.
