You and your friends can get endless fun with this easily-made toy. Obtain a piece of cardboard tubing about 5 inches in length and I ½ inches in diameter. Cut out a large circular hole in the side, as shown in the illustration. Draw a face around the hole, using the latter as a big mouth. Then add any little as a big mouth. Then add any little touches that you fancy. We have stuck on a piece of paper cut to look like a mustache and another piece to serve as a mortar-board. But you may add anything you like, as long as it has to do with heads and faces. Now get the lid of a large cardboard box and cut out I ½ inches of the upstanding edge in one of the shorter sides. Drill a hole close to both sides of the opening and thread through them a piece of elastic, making a knot at each end. Stand the “old man” at the far end of the lid, fold a pellet of paper on to the elastic, take a good aim, and see if you can shoot the pellet into the gentleman’s mouth. To knock the poor fellow over should count a point against you.
