SWING AND A MISS: Miss Geneva Satterthwaite's kindergarten class at Burns Park School had a rare treat yesterday when a classmate, Ronald Scott, 5, brought a Mexican pinata to school. Here, one of the youngsters, blindfolded, takes a swing at the pinata, a paper-decorated container filled with candy, as Ronald's sister, Carol Anne Scott, 10, (far left) jerks it up out of the way by means of a rope. Hitting the pinata is a Mexican Yule custom.

DIRECT HIT! This was the general scene after a kindergartner broke open the swaying pinata and scattered candy over the ground. The Scott youngsters' parents, Prof. and Mrs. Raymond Scott, brought the pinata back with them after he spent a year teaching at the University of Mexico.
