the country nor our hectic trips had ever been able to give us because we had everywhere encountered excitement, professional duties or ties with the past. In that house in .Broadmead we were alone together, bound to the world by no other tie than the work we had in common and that we both loved. Nothing spoiled these happy hours.

I found a wholly new pleasure in being intimately associated with the life of the young and in becoming once more a student myself.
My pupils told me about their traditional jokes, the cruel treatment they inflicted on the statue of the Christian Student, the campus scapegoat, and the difficulties they encountered in stealing the clapper of the bell which seemed to be an inescapable moral obligation.
