_10 to 30 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

_Hand ball; bean bag._

This game is played with a hand ball or basket ball and is a gymnasium
adaptation of the wall ball game known as "Burley Whush" or "Ball

A square is drawn on the ground or floor. All of the players gather
within this, including one who holds the ball. The ball man throws the
ball in the air, whereupon all of the other players run in any
direction as far as they can. The thrower remains on his place,
catches the ball, and as he does so cries "Hold!" Upon hearing this,
all of the others must instantly stop running. The thrower then aims
his ball at one of these other players, and if he succeeds in hitting
him, the player hit must change places with the thrower. Should he
miss, all of the players return to the square and the same thrower
takes another trial. Should he miss hitting a player a second time, he
must be "court-martialed," _i.e._ stand twenty feet from the square
with his back turned to the players congregated there, who pelt him
with their balls, each one having one throw.
