CHAPTER II

"Getting on, isn't he? Not that I blame him. Why don't you join us? I don't suppose the others will mind."
" If they don't object, I'd like to. It's very decent of you to ask me." He tried to hide his joy. " I'll go and ask them," said Ockley, and went off down the passage. Denis wanted to dance. By jove, everyone was nice this half. It was only his stupid imagination that made him think they were laughing at him. He should assert himself a bit more. Laugh at others. He remembered the days when he used to jam a chair under his door-knob and pray to God the ragging party would not force open his door. That was all over now. The new half was starting better.

Twenty hens, laying every other day, minus one dozen a week.... That sort of problem had been the cause, and soon would be again, of long brown bruises on the fleshy part of the forearm. But would a dozen a week be enough ? He knew that Ockley alone had once eaten a dozen hard-boiled eggs for a bet, and had got off early school for two mornings owing to the drastic remedy prescribed by the dame. Which reminded him, " We've got
