he could. (The `bung' was a long chain, with a wooden handle on the end, which the cox held in his right hand to prevent the boat drifting beyond its station before the gun was fired.)
All at once there was a sudden `bang' as the first of the three guns went off ; and soon crews were seen everywhere hastily divesting themselves of wraps and scarves and handing them over to the followers on the bank. Last instructions were being hurriedly passed on to the stroke ; whilst frantic advice was being given to the rest of the crew. Strangely enough, all this anxiety and haste was hidden beneath a mask of indifference and nonchalance. To row a race might have been the last thing they intended to do; yet in every breast a heart was fluttering with repressed excitement that was being bottled up almost to bursting point.
Bang!-the `two minute' gun. They were all set now. The boatman was pushing them away from the bank with a tremendously long boat hook.
" Keep hold of the bung, cox," he cried.
Bang ! The 'minute gun'!
" I'll count down from the ten seconds mark," called coach-" are you ready? Nearly on time I"
" Touch her, bow and two," came the voice of the cox. "Easy."
" Ten ! Nine! Eight!" As the coach counted out the seconds Bunny waited the terrible word 'Gun.'
" Half forward. Are you ready? Five ! Four ! Three ! Two ! One ! Gun!!"
With the word `gun' came the explosion of the starting cannon, and they gave a series of frantic jabs at the water to get the boat moving. On the third stroke they lengthened out considerably, and on the fourth and fifth had settled down to real hard work.
