THE RIVER OF THE ARROW

At the end of the year he entered me in the Concours General which was a very serious sort of competitive examination in which all the Lycees and Colleges of France took part, each represented by three or four or its students. The examinations were given, with every precaution, at the Prefecture. The papers arrived from Paris in sealed envelopes. The Lycee gave the contestants elegant lunches to take with them - lobster and cold chicken. The mayonnaise was in a bottle and had turned. The preceding year I had won a prize for Latin composition and another for Greek in the Concours; this had given the Lycee of Rouen a good standing and had filled the Headmaster with pride. The subject in Philosophy was: The Role of Habit in the Life of the Individual and in Society. For a pupil of Alain it was an easy theme. All we had to do was to follow' his method; a number of examples: the boxer, the gymnast. .. citation o authorities: `Just as one swallow does not make a summer, so a single virtuous action does not constitute virtue'. "Osper idi i fysis ithos..." Auguste Comte on social habits . . . Habit and instinct: the Labrador duck ... We were allowed eight hours; I had finished in four.
A month later I was in Elbeuf sick in bed with a sore throat when I: received a telegram from the Headmaster: `Heartiest congratulations on receiving first prize in the Concours General.'. I had great difficulty in believing it, but it was true, and soon a superb pile of books arrived from Paris. When the prizes were awarded after a solemn rendition of the Marseillaise the Prefect handed me my diploma. My comrades gave me an ovation which was much sweeter to me than the prize. I found refuge on the platform beside Alain, whose athletic body bulged his academic gown.
`This is fine', he said to me, `provided you also understand thart it is nothing ... Now you must live ... What are you going to do?'
That was a question I had been asking myself. I was passionately ' devoted to the life of the Lycee. It was delightful to attend classes conducted by a man of genius, to study, to pass examinations which appeared uniformly easy to me. Couldn't my whole life be one long examination in which I always received the notation very good and the congratulations of the examiners? This seemed not impossible. Why not enter the Ecole Normale? On two successive years the opportunity had been given in the Concours General to pit myself against the best students of my generation. The result had been encouraging.
