Choosing The Right Game
Success of party depends on types of games played. Games must be selected wisely, remembering the nature and desire of the party boys. Take a tip from the following about the different types of successful games.
The next event called for great lung power. When the men with the greatest chest expansion were chosen, one from each school, goal lines and starting lines were set and each man was given a balloon the color to represent his school. We picked the needed balloons off the wall. The rules of the game were then given. Each man got down on his hands and knees and was told to blow his balloon across the room to the goal line without touching the balloon. The man who blew his balloon across the goal line first received ten points.
Not to be one-sided we next held a debate, two men to a team. The question was "Resolved that Eatmore is a better school than Sowhat." Naturally the Eatmore boys took the affirmative and the Sowhat boys the negative. Constructive speeches lasted three minutes and rebuttal two minutes. The guests’ then chose the winning team and ten points were awarded the winning side.
"Shot-put" next took the limelight. Empty milk bottles were placed on the floor, and the contestants stood erect and dropped beans into the bottle. The winner, the one with the most beans in the bottle, received ten points.
"Chinese Get-up," played tournament style, was next. Each Eatmore boy picked an opponent from the Sowhat school group. Each pair of boys sat on the floor back to back with their arms folded across their chests. At a signal they all tried to rise without unfolding their arms. This is lots of fun and boys love it. The Eatmore winners then competed with the Sowhat winners until there was one remaining winner. If two men from the same school are winners then twenty-five points can be awarded each man.
The scores of all the games were then added up and the losing team retired to one side of the dining-room table which was covered with a paper tablecloth. A plentiful supply of hot wieners and a heaping platter of buttered buns were set before the losers, who were given aprons. The losers then served the hot dogs over the counter (dining table) to the winners. Mustard or piccalilli was served upon request. After the winners were completely filled up a fresh supply was brought for the losers.
The main difficulty with this party is getting the boys to go home at the scheduled time. Each one has a stunt he'd like to offer. When this happens you can be sure the boys have had a good time. For some time after the party, Eatmore and Sowhat were by-words with the boy.
