HAYS DAILY NEWS PA(!K .') December 14, 197R Gomes Reflect The Times Christmas Home Tour Successful By JEANNK LK8BM UPI Family Kdltor "Games to a very great extent reflect the social feelings of their time," says Randolph Barton, president of a major board game manufacturer. "Take monopoly: it was introduced in 1935, invented as o way to escape from the Depression," Barton said. "About 80 million have sold to date, and it has been published in 14 languages." Tastes do change. The deluxe edition of 1936 had plastic pieces, then considered Printed Pattern finer than wood. The reverse now is true, Barton said. "Very early on, in 1904, there was a Sherlock Holmes game. In 1938, the Lone Ranger was put into a game. Our latest is 10-Four Good Buddy," he said. It reflects the popularity of Citizens' Band radios with their special jargon. "The largest selling board game lasl,year was based on the Six-Million-Dollar Man TV show," he said. Educational values are secondary, at least lo this company, just as they were when 15-year-old founder Ueorge Parker invented his first board game, Banking, in 188,1 "He was 16 years old, and he wanted to be a journalist," said Barton. in Puritan New England '(Parker was a Salem, Mass., boy, and the company remains there to this day), card games or anything to do with money was considered wicked. Because cards were frowned on, none of the company's early games had point values. "But nobody apparently frowned on the theory of making money," Barton said. Young Parker put all his savings into publishing Banking, which was a great success in the Boston area. We examined Banking and some other old games when they were in New York City on loan to a bookstore for 'a special anniversary window display. It was a real exercise in nostalgia. One was How Silas Popped the Question, a reading game first published in 1918. A player starts'by reading from the basic booklet. When he comes to the phrase, "I say, Sally," the next player reads from a card he has drawn. Example: "Do you think salt pork is good for bunions?"

In 1909, jigsaw puzzles were such a craze that the company temporarily suspended publication of other games lo concentrate on them. A lot pictured Old Masters pasted on wood. Some had about 1,200 pieces. There were tiny qnes, too, such as Down the River, showing a logger at work. It was a cinch to work. It was less than four-by-five-inches, and some of the pieces were cut in animal shapes in the custom of the day: a cat, a duck, a squirrel. • Corner Grocery, published in 1887, carried typical prices of that time on the cards:-a dozen eggs were 30 cents, a pound of rice, 8 cents, 10 pounds'of sugar, 55 cents and five pounds of sugar 25 cents, or one-third the current price of a pound of brown sugar in my neighbormrod—super- ' market in New York City. The game collection also includes a 1932 edition of Mansion of Happiness, said to be the first board game published in America. Barton said it was invented by a Beverly, Mass., clergyman's daughter in 1843 and reprinted by Parker, beginning in 1894. Directions for playing described it as An Instructive Moral and Entertaining Amusement. No wonder. Rule No. 3 says, "Whoever possesses (arrives, at) PIETY, HONESTY, TEMPERANCE, GRATITUDE, PRUDENCE, TR-UTH, SINCERITY, HUMILITY, INDUSTRY, CHARITY, OR HUMANITY is entitled to advance six spaces toward t'he 'Mansion of Happiness'." Rule No. 6: "Whoever possesses CRUELTY must be sent back to JUSTICE." .And Rule No. 7: "Whoever gets into IDLENESS must come to POVERTY." Two hundred and fifty persons loured five homes on the Chrislmas Homes Tour Sunday, '»and Ihe Building Renovation Fund of the Hays Arts Council nelted $540. According to Carol Heil of the IIAC, all 251 $2 tickets printed for the event were sold, and several persons donated money or purchased leftover cookies to add the exlra dollars. Persons on Ihc lour were Irealed to a variety of Christmas decorating ideas, a walk through some lovely Hays homes, a printed copy of a Ukranian Christmas legend, coffee and cokies. A centerpiece door prize donated by Marshall Slade was won by Mrs. Ken Barker. Pearl and Jeweled ornaments attracted atlenlion at the home of Fern and Mar, shall Slade. Mrs. Slade, who started making the ornaments because she didn't want to discard old costume jewelry, has added beaded spider webs lo the tree to commemorate a Ukranian legend about spiders bringing luck on Christmas. Hundreds of candlesticks from all over the world highlighted the Christmas decorations at the home of Roy and Ellen Oldham. At the home of Virginia, Donald and Michael Meade, a Christmas table, 'traditional greenery, and a beautiful gold and red Christmas Tree were featured.
