Wholesome recreation is essential for the best development of individual li. - _

leadership. People of all communities must have some leisure and the develop-  " ·`

upon good leadership or proper direction. Participation in games and play is

asuy be I tation with his neighbor, and if the second has not caught the secret he may  
of hw mention "tea" or some other incorrect thing—incorrect because he cannot be  
touching it as he speaks. 'The object of the game is to see how soon most all  
the players catch on to the secret. {  
Ship. The players sit round in a ring, and one tosses a handkerchief across  
to another, at the same time saying a word of three letters, and immediately  
beginning to count up to twelve, finishing—"eleven, twelve, snip!" The one  
who received the handkerchief tries, before "snip" is said, to reply with three   ‘
words, each beginning with one of the letters of the original word, in their  
proper order. Thus, if "now" is called, the response might be "nuts, out, white."  
When the reply is given in time the successful player throws the handkerchief  
to someone else; but if he fails and "snip" cuts him short, he must give the  
handkerchief back to the one who threw it to him that it may be thrown to  
someone else.  
Likenesses. One player is "It·." He says to each person in turn—"I am  
pow thinking of something; what is it 1ike?" Even tho he doesn’t know what the  
thought may be, each player names some object such as, tree, tiger, streak of  
lightning. When all have answered, "It" tells his thought. Then each player  
must explain where the likeness comes in between the object he mentioned and  
the thing that was thought of. For example, "It" thought of his pocketbook.  
The player who named "tree" may say they are alike since both sometimes bear    Q
Jirch useful objects; the one who chose tiger, because they are covered with hide;  
the one who chose streak of lightning because the gold in them is very transi-  
Proverbs. The player "It" withdraws. The other players decide on some 5 
familiar proverb, each taking a word of the proverb which he must use in  
answering the questions put to him by the player "It". "It" tries to pick out  
the signiiicant words in the answers to the questions. After he has discovered    
the hidden proverb, he names the player whose answers gave the hrst clue, who  
then becomes "It."  
Teakettle. One player leaves the room. The group selects a word that has   4,
lll/0 0l‘ more meanings and different spelling, such as rain (rein, reign). The  
Player returns and members in the group make remarks using the word in one  
of its meanings but saying "teakettle" instead of the right word. For instance,  
we might say "Didn’t we have a heavy ‘teakettle’ yesterday?" Another might  
Sal', "Did the horse’s ‘teakettle’ break?" Another person may say, "Do you know  
what happened in the ‘teakettle’ of Henry VIII?" The person who made the  
_ Y€mliI`k which gave the clue to the word must be the guesser the next time.

if- Charades. Charades involve the acting out of a word by one group while V
  the audience attempts to guess what it is. The audience, however, is made up playe
Qi of small groups each of which will in turn act out a word. There are several ,
Fl ways of dramatizing the word, and any of them may be used, altho it is cus-  
,   tomary for the acting group to announce which method it is using. The word ‘ 1‘
  may be acted out in syllables, as "accident"—"ax-eye-dent." It may be acted r,
gh out by syllables with an epilogue dramatizing the meaning of the entire word. "
  as the portrayal of an accident, or the word may be used as a whole without 3
Eq breaking it down into syllables. Acting may be in pantomime or in conversation. 4‘
,§€5.§ When conversation is used, some like to act out the syllables working them into ‘
li—·¤ the conversation as ingeniously as possible. In the word "attention" the words
  "at" "ten" "shun" would be woven into the conversation, Or the conversation 5`
  l might be centered about trying to get someone to pay attention to something. 6
  The words dramatized may be any which are familiar to the members ol ,I.‘
