CHAPTER IV

It was Saturday afternoon ; the first Saturday of the summer half, and the crack of cricket bats could be heard through the playing fields, and out on the plain of Agar's Plough and Dutchman's farm.
Denis and Harbord had been to see the cricket lists posted on the school notice board. Scrupulously they had searched for their names, starting in the fourth game of middle club and working conscientiously to the top of the first. They did not expect to find themselves in the first game, nor were they particularly disappointed on their apparent omission from even the fourth. They only wanted the certainty of the afternoon's leisure. Shirking cricket, if they were on the list, meant being reported to the captain of the games.
" I'm not surprised at being dropped," said Denis. He had an elegant batting style, that looked good for centuries if the bowling had been worse. " Winkworth's keeper of middle club and he hates me. I don't know why you aren't playing, though."
" Forgotten me, I suppose. I shall get a game later. Meanwhile, I vote we go on the river. We'll get Ockley to cox, if he hasn't gone out."
They found Ockley in grey flannels and zephyr, about to start off on a lonely expedition in a rigger, a precarious form of racin-, shell, which it was the privilege of wetbob uppers alone to upset. Without much difficulty they dissuaded Ockley from his conscientious outing in the rigger, and installed him as cox in the stern of a skiff.
" For God's sake, don't put your foot through the bottom," said Denis, as Harbord lurched amiably on board ; " I'll stroke."
" Are you ready ? one ; are you ready ? two," sang out
