A. Billings accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Joe Gordon, of Arlington, to Hawkeye to attend the Fayette County Postmasters' club dinner and party. Postmasters from Waverly, Elkader, and Sumner were also present. Mrs. Ella Jones was the hostess. In Target Attack, the players divide into two teams, with each building a snow fort. Each member of each team stands a four- foot Stick in the snow outside his team's fort and sets a good firm snowball on the point. Forts on opposite sides are a good "arm's throw" apart. Each team stores in its fort n large supply of snowballs to use as "ammunition." Each member must defend his own snowball and attack one of the snowballs outside the "enemy" fort. A player whose ball has been "shot away" must rally to the support of his teammates with balls still in place. The game continues until one side has lost all its snowballs and the other team is proclaimed the winner. The building of the snow man and forts is the feature of these games which is most important in providing exercise. Dr. van der Smissen explains. The weight of the snow offers resistance to the arm and shoulder muscles as the big balls of snow are rolled over the ground and lifted into place. Activity which provides such resistance gives the arms and shoulders more exercise than throwing motions, the S.U.I, professor explains. Plain snow shoveling also gives tiie arm and shoulder muscles a good workout, adds Dr. van der Smissen. So give your child a shovel suited to his size and let him clean the walks. Snow games provide Exercise for children Met on Tuesday The American Home Depart ment of the Federated Clubs met Tuesday evening. Dec. 12 at the home of Mrs. Russell Swartz with Mrs. Otto Finger as cohostess. This was the annual cookie party and each member took three dozen of her favorite cookies to the party with the recipe to ex change and each took a sample of each kind home with her. Mrs Harold Boulton displayed j Christmas decorations for the | home. ! Novel snow games ean provide the extra incentive tueded to get your children away from the television set for fresh air and vigorous outdoor exercise, suggests Betty van der Smissen. associate professor of physical education for women at the State University of Iowa. Children need physical activity just as much through the winter months as in warm weather, she points out. "Chances are good that they are getting far too little exercise, particularly for their arm and shoulder muscles," says Dr. van der Smissen. Just plain building of snow men and snow forts will give these muscles the workout especially needed by most American children, the S.U.I, professor notes. You may arouse more interest in building snow men and forts by introducing your children to two winter games - Snowball Twenty-One and Target Attack, suggests Dr. van der Smissen. Snowball Twenty-One calls for a snow man with sturdy arms outstretched to hold a hula hoop parallel to the ground. Players take turns throwing snowballs through the hoop from 20 feet away, getting one point for each "goal." Tne first player making 21 points is the winner. 3 SELL YOUR DON'T WANTS WITH LEADER WANT ADS IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE WITH LEADER WANT ADS We extend to all our friends greetings of the season.
