CHAPTER VII

" When you get to a certain position in the house," he said, " you are expected to set some kind of an example to the younger boys. As far as I can see, you three are merely a laughing stock. I don't know who was to blame in the first instance."
" It wasn't my fault," said Spencer-Mace ;" they attacked me."
" Probably all three. In any case I am going to beat you all." He paused for effect, and catching Denis's unvoiced protest, " Yes, I know you are in the debating society, Bailey. But you should learn to behave in a manner worthy of the debate. I do not consider it fair in this case that you should escape with a fine, while the others are beaten. Have ` you anything to say ? " He seemed very tired of the whole business and scarcely expected an answer. He picked up some long, whippy canes and bent back their ends on the palm of his hand.
" They were bullying me," said Spencer-Mace. Harbord gave him a pitying look. He and Denis stood slightly apart. Denis stared at his feet. He wasn't going to say anything before Robin.
" I don't care," said Freeman. " I can't go into all that now. It was in your room, anyhow."
" But I swear. .." Freeman held up his hand. He put on his tired, supercilious voice. " Bailey and Spencer-Mace, will you be so good as to go outside and wait till I call you ? Thank you. Harbord, I think you'd better bend over there." He pointed to a wooden chair at the end of the library. Harbord knelt down and gripped the back of the chair.
" Tighter, if you please," said Freeman. He stepped back a couple of paces. The dutiful boredom faded from the library's faces. They sat upright in their armchairs and a look of professional criticism took its place. A muffled whack. The figure on the wooden chair shook slightly. Another whack, which sounded even stranger. Freeman went up to the chair. " Are you padded, Harbord ?" He answered his question by a touch. " Take it out," he said, in a dreadfully calm voice. A couple of woollen vests were produced.
