Victor P. Dauer, from Dynamic Physical Education for Elementary School Children, Fourth Edition, 1962, Burgess Publishing Company

The children are scattered throughout the area. The teacher rolls the two balls into the playing area. Anyone may pick up a ball and throw it at anyone else. If a person is hit or the ball in his hand is struck with a ball, he goes to the side line. If he has a ball in his hand, he should drop it immediately and not attempt to throw.

Children should be cautioned not to punish others unnecessarily with hard hits. Throws should be below the waist whenever possible, and a throw hitting the head puts the thrower out of the game.
