CHAPTER IV

Ockley in professional style, and the skiff rolled unevenly into mid river and rocked its way upstream. Cox tugged hard on his right rudder string to no avail. " Don't pull so hard, Oliver, or you'll have us in the bank." Denis redoubled his own efforts in an attempt to outrow Harbord, and the skiff headed for the opposite shore. " Easy, stroke," called Ockley, and Denis stopped rowing. The boat shot ahead. Bow dug his oar in slantwise, caught the most perfect crab, and vanished prone in the forepart of the boat.
Denis leaned on his oar in helpless laughter. Ockley lay back and gazed with indifference at the bank. There was a shout of " look ahead, skiff." Ockley seized the rudder strings. " Row you idiots, row." The rhythmic splash of oars came suddenly nearer. Denis glanced over his shoulder and caught a glimpse of a junior house four bearing down on them. On the bank a master, megaphone in hand, urged his bicycle along the towpath. " Get to the side," he bawled through the megaphone, and Denis and Harbord struck frantically at the water. The house four passed a few feet clear, their faces set in painful effort. They were trying to remember to keep their backs straight, get their hands away quick, blades sharp out of the water, use their legs and do it all in time with the stupid-looking torso in front of each one of them. Denis could not help thinking of the Speenmouth fishermen, with their short choppy strokes and legs spread akimbo.
" I can't see what fun you wetbobs get out of that, Ockley," he said.
" It's not so bad as fielding point for four hours on end and being cursed for funking bloody catches. At least, you've got more freedom."
" Not in a house four," said Harbord. " The only fellows, who have the afternoon to themselves are the rotten slackers like Peter, here." Ockley laughed. " You see, you have to be very good, or very bad to be allowed to go rowing by yourself ; it's really easier to be bad. Otherwise, of course, I should have my boats by now. Anyhow, I'm more likely
