THE JOY OF BATTLE

"Pretty enough, but a rotter when it comes to the pinch."
" Good again ! Well, these fellows have not once been extended during the races, for you gave them no sort of a run last night. You went to bits at the start and never quite recovered. However, that will give All Saints some false confidence, which is just what we want. Now what do you propose to do to-night? Jump on to their tails at the start?"
" No good," said Hughie. "They are too old birds for that game. Besides, my crew want very carefully working up to a fast stroke. I can't trust Six at anything above thirty-four. He'll go on rowing that all day ; but if I quicken up to thirty-six or seven he gets flustered, and forty sends him clean off his nut after about a minute. No, we must just wear them down."
" Quite right," said D'Arcy. "If you are within a length at the Railway Bridge you ought just to do it."
" The difficulty is," said Hughie ruefully, "that the crew are only good for about one spurt. It's a good spurt, I must say, but if it fails we are done. They can never slow down to a steady stroke again-especially Six. So it simply has to be made at the right moment. The difficulty is to know when."
" Have you got a reliable cox ?"
" First-class."
"Can't he tell you?"
