  • "A game now unacceptable in its original form for it involves scattering the landscape with paper. A "hare" - an accomplished runner - sets out to lay a trail of paper-streamers for a pack of runners to follow. The aim is to catch the hare before he reaches "home". This game was a regular school-comic favourite in the 1930s and 1940s where it almost became a narrative genre all of its own - variations on the story were for the most part based on cheating, secondary and false trails, short cuts, bribery, moving the "home" or base, exorbitant betting on rigged runners, assaults and falsified results."
