CHAPTER VII

" I'm sure you will," said Harbord. " But he can't tan you, Bailey. You're in the debate."
" I don't know ; if he asks m'tutor, he can and probably will. He hates me. It was rotten luck Freeman being in the house at this time of the day."
They left Spencer-Mace and went back to Ockley's room, talking loudly on the way. A few lower boys grinned at them. The prospect of one of the debate being tanned was most encouraging.
Ockley had just finished the chocolate cake. " Hard luck," he said, when he heard the news. " But Freeman's been very out of form lately, so I heard one of the lower boys say. I should pad all the same."
" No, I'm damned if I will," said Denis. He could not bear the indignity of being caught with a sweater inside his trousers and Robin looking on.
" I shall, anyhow," said Harbord.
" Come along on the way up and tell me what you get." Though seldom beaten himself, Ockley's interest in tannings was highly technical.
Supper that evening was a cold-blooded business. Denis and Harbord talked ceaselessly without listening to what they were saying. Spencer-Mace, who had drifted into a place lower down the table, was apeing the hero with some of the smaller boys. They took a lot of cold scraggy mutton and left it on their plates. Denis speared great slabs of beetroot, which he normally hated, and drank a good deal of water. Wren made things worse by arriving ten minutes late for prayers. Finally the house trooped upstairs, and the three boys, who had hung about in the dining-room passage, knocked on the library door.
Freeman was standing with his back to the fireplace. Taunton was drawing patterns on the library blotter. Manley and the others sprawled in decrepit wicker armchairs, a dutifully bored expression on their faces.
The captain of the house began his harangue. He decided the punishment first, but he had a strong sense of fair play and liked to talk a little before putting it into practice.
