PARADISE LOST

`Let the dissenters withdraw!'
The dissenters were the Protestants and the Israelites. About twenty
protestants and three or four Jews stepped out of the ranks.
`The others,' the Head Usher went on, `will form in a column of twos and follow me into the chapel. ..'
There was the prolonged sound of tramping feet and the student body disappeared into a vaulted passage-way. Our little group remained alone beneath the trees, disconsolate and with nothing to say. From the
nearby chapel rose the music of the organ magnificently played by my master Dupre, and the murmured responses. We strolled in melancholy beneath the chestnut trees of the courtyard. We felt ourselves separated for an hour's time, on a solemn occasion, from a community which was, after all, our community, and we were unhappy, very unhappy, without knowing why.
Except for that one painful hour I fell in love at once with my new school. The beautiful Court of Honour, framed by symmetrical grey buildings constructed by the Jesuits in the seventeenth century, the Latin inscriptions which ornamented the front of the sundial and the pedestal of the statue of Corneille, the drum that rolled out from the head of the stairs at five minutes to eight, the ranks which immediately formed two by two, this rigour, this discipline gave me a joy which I was to recapture later on with my regiment, when we marched past the flag to the music of a military band. The consciousness of belonging to a well-ordered group is an aesthetic pleasure which I believe the musicians in an orchestra experience, as well as students and soldiers.
At the end of a week our professor, Monsieur Robineau, had us write a Latin composition. Thanks to Kittel, I knew how a Latin composition was made, and the text did not seem hard. Naturally I had no idea how I should rank in this class of forty students, none of whom I knew. A week later the Headmaster, Monsieur Desfours, appeared to read the marks. It was a solemn moment. The Headmaster, corpulent, bearded, executive, entered with his high hat in his hand, followed by the Censor, who held a large sheet of paper. The whole class rose.
`Greetings, Monsieur Robineau', the Headmaster said, rolling his r's. Sit down, gentlemen. Your standing is as follows ...'
And the Censor read:
