It's all fun and games under the pine trees, until someone loses an eye!

Even back then they sensationalized the headline and buried the lede. The game isn't dangerous it was that clutzy broad that someone gave a long stick to.

@ Canny Scot. Why not combine the caber toss with the game of pick-up-sticks

When they master this game they can move on to Wizard's Chess.

I'm confused.

The photos, writing, and typeface all scream late 1920s.

But it wasn't until the late 30s that Charles Ray could/should have been called a 'former' movie star.

"Ladies Should Listen" was made in 1934 (iirc), and his name was on the posters for that movie (in much smaller type than Cary Grant and Frances Drake, but it was there), which qualifies him as still a star.

Also, he appeared regularly in movies until his death in the mid 40s.

Great way to win, if the guy can't see she'd definitely have an advantage.
