the white beyond the other. A ball or some other soft object easily
thrown is given to the red team. Any member of that team may try to hit

line. Should he succeed, it counts one point for the red. Should he
miss and the ball go across to where the white team is stationed, any
member of the white team endeavors to hit one of the blue and scores a
point if successful. Should the ball fail to return to either the red

blue territory to recover it, but must return or toss the ball back to
his team beyond the line before it is again in play. The playing time

blues in the second third, and the whites with the reds in the last
third. Only the team between the lines is subject to being thrown at.
