boys divided forces and took stations
at different x^oLits on the campus. A
hail of white missiles filled the air dur^

attack, and then the others. The dead
ly spheres were made and thrown amid
shouts of triumph and anguish. A
keen eye and an active body were
necessary to avoid the swiftly moving
balls. There were many luckless

unerring aim by some relentless war

to cross the battlefield both sides
united to remind her of her mistake.
