CHAPTER III

considered a" sap " was a dreadful reputation. In French, he pronounced with a consciously English accent ; speaking French like a Frenchman was affected and absurd. Denis did not see that his cruelty and bad work hurt poor old Shivers, who took a great pride in his boys-a rather pathetic pride in view of the fact that they always did twice as badly as they ought to in " trials " at the end of the half. Shivers sometimes asked him to tea on Sundays and then there was a shy reserve between them. Shivers was fully conscious of it, but could do nothing, except provide a large tea. They met on neutral ground in the home atmosphere of the private side of a master's house ; but neither Denis nor Shivers could quite forget the daily battle waged in the division room. If Denis ever felt ashamed at tea, he hardened his heart and remembered that, after all, Shivers was a beak ; and between beaks and boys there was a barrier. As boys grew older the barrier was lost sight of, Meanwhile, etiquette forbade that Denis should work his hardest or his best, or treat Shivers as Shivers eternally hoped boys would treat him-as a human being. Denis valued school conventions at their literal worth, and so he slacked in school and " floated " purposely in construe. Other boys, less impressionable, just pretended never to know the place, and put in a good deal of work in secret. That was the only way to work and remain popular. In his terror of being thought a" sap," Denis had already ruined his earlier reputation for work at Eton, and was becoming a sore problem to his division masters and to Wren himself.
It was an easy hour with Shivers. The new division let him off lightly. There was a smile on Shivers' face. He quoted several poets and became rather excited. He forgot as usual that a few raggers set an example and a standard to the most industrious of divisions ; it is one of the minor drawbacks of the public school spirit. All the same, Shivers smiled. He seized Denis by the arm as he tried to slip past, " Hi, Bailey ; glad to see you in my division again. Better work this half, I hope ?"
