CHAPTER XI

watched the Harrow first pair adding slow singles. The light blue caps moved alertly, determined at all costs to keep down the scoring. Cover point fell prone to stop a certain boundary. The batsmen ran a single. " Well fielded, sir," shouted Lord Periton. There was a hostile chorus of " Well hit, Harrow," from the coach next door.
" Etonnnn," shouted Denis. A ripple of " Etons " became a roar, which rose and fell and hardly ceased when the over was finished and the field changed their places. A counter roar of " Harrow " was promptly shouted down. The rivalry in the stands far outstripped the interest in the game. The luckiest snick between first and second slip, or a couple of byes brought wild cheering from the crowd.
As the afternoon wore on, the cheering subsided. The issue was too serious and too uncertain for noisy outbursts. All but the most fashionable of the spectators had ceased to perambulate. After a round on the asphalt they took their seats and watched the slowly moving score board. By five o'clock Eton, with two wickets down, were left with 141 to win. Stumps were to be drawn at seven. The task was not impossible, but the striped caps made superhuman efforts to check the score board's progress.
Denis sat with Lord and Lady Periton and followed every movement of the game. Peter walked round with his sister. Lady Bridget had gone home for lunch and had a second new frock to show off. Denis had fought his way round the hot asphalt more than once, but had seen nothing of Maureen and Oliver. Perhaps they had not come up for the second day. But, like the Fourth of June, it was possible to wander for a whole day without meeting someone, who might be a few yards ahead or behind. Now he sat leaning forward, with his top-hat beside him, his pink carnation tired and ragged in his buttonhole and his shoes covered with fine dust. His chin rested in hot, grimy hands. If Eton could score a run a minute or a little more, they would win.
The Harrow fast bowler had three slips and bowled wide
