It was played by teams (or just two individuals) who threw a rubber ball (or tennis ball) over the roof to the other side. If the other side caight the ball on the fly, he/she could sneak around the house and throw the ball at the other participant. If it hit the target, then the teams switched sides of the house. The action began with the person in possession of the ball calling "Anty Anty etc." and throwing the ball up over the peak of the roof. Oh, and if the ball did not go over the peak, but dribbled back down to the thrower, he'd Call "Pig Tail." I grew up in Wenatchee, Washington. This game I played in the thirties. Joe Monda
