CHAPTER X

" I don't know. I'm sitting on the Periton's coach. It's the black and yellow one on the right of the pavilion over there, if you like to come along any time. They are giving a dance for Peter and me to-morrow night."
" How splendid for you," said Maureen. " Do you remember the last time we danced together at Speenmouth ?"
" Oh, shut up, Maureen. Don't be like a girl. Besides, I danced with Ockley's sister in a club the other night and she said I was damned good."
" I was only joking. I know you won't tread on Miss Wreath's toes. But why must we quarrel ?"
" I'm not. And I must go now. Good-bye."
" See you later ? "
" 'Xpect so." He hurried after the rest.
" Oliver has asked us to come and have strawberries in their arbour at tea," said Peter. " We'll go."
" Good," said Denis.
A dinner bell sounded in the pavilion. Boys took their mothers by the arm and moved faster towards the stands. A few veterans in grey toppers lingered near the pitch ; then walked with slow, deliberate strides to the pavilion. The ropes were removed and the green field regained its respect in the eyes of the crowd. Denis and his party had just climbed on top of their coach, when two white-coated figures took possession of the pitch. The umpires placed the bails delicately on the stumps. A roar from the crowd as the Eton side streamed out from the pavilion, and stood tossing the ball from hand to hand. A suitable pause and numbers four and nine of the Harrow Eleven swung out in long step and passed into the middle of the fieldsmen. Within half an hour, numbers nine and ten had returned to the pavilion, and when the last man's bail was knocked flying past first slip, the score stood at 147, number four carrying his bat for an invaluable seventy-three.
Eton fared slightly worse. When tea was taken at fourthirty, three good wickets were down for forty, and the dark blue rosettes were shouting themselves hoarse in the stands. In the Harbord's tea arbour the conversation was disjointed.
