DIG THOSE DOTS
HPC Students Take to '42'
By EUGENE FLEMING
Did you ever play a game with
dominoes called "forty-two?" It
is not generally considered a
spectator sport but it is leally
just as amusing as tiddly winks
table tennis or any of the other
really gieat games.
To begin the game the fellows
I watched got out some little flat
blocks with white specks on one
side. I thought at first that they
must not like the sides with dots
on them because the first thing
they did was to turn all the little
dots toward the table.
The next thing they did was
to each pick up one of those lit-
tle blocks. They said the fellow
that got the biggest block got to
bid first. Well they all looked

I way of telling which wa3 biggest.
Another thing that was not
clear was what it was that they
were bidding for. I asked once

After they got all the dots hid-
den one of the boys began to
stir the dominoes around with his
hands. That must have been to
confuse everybody. Then each
one of the fellows reached in and
got himself two handfuls of the
