This game must be played in groups, not larger than 12. Holes are dug

in the ground with the heels of the shoe. These holes are placed about

6 inches apart in a line. They should be about 3 inches in diameter and

at least one inch deep. A line is drawn 6 feet from the first hole. The

one who is "It" must stand behind this line and roll a soft ball so

that it will drop into one of the holes. If he misses, he continues to

roll until he succeeds. If he succeeds, the one, into whose hole the

ball rolls, runs forward, picks it up and endeavors to hit any other

player from the position in which he picked up the ball. The rest may

run in their effort to get away. Should he miss, a goose egg--(a small

stone)--is placed in his hole. Should he succeed in hitting a player, a

goose egg is placed in the hole of that player. The one to whom is

awarded the goose egg is the next to roll the ball from the dead line

in the endeavor to get it into a hole. Any player getting three goose

eggs has to run the gauntlet, which is the name given to running

between two lines of players while they slap at his back. The faster he

runs the lighter the slaps. No player is allowed to hit from the front.
