     Waysof getting partners.
          1.  Grand right and left with music; get partner when
              music stops.
          2.  Two circles, one inside other, facing opposite
              directions, marching to music; wvhen music stops stand
              near new partner and talk until music begins.
          3. Girls join hands in circle, raising arms as windows.
              Boys join hands and wind in and out the windows until
              boys' circle is complete, then step to right or left
              to new partner.
