CHAPTER XIII

in Eton and Windsor were becoming more and more reluctant to stock cribs and run the risk of being put out of bounds. The audience hailed each new work with loud cheers. North and Owen Jones sat, grinning in the corner, while the sources of their classical inspiration were offered for sale. Members of middle division snapped them up and smiled at the years of idleness which lay ahead -provided the texts were literal. For both Kelly and Giles had a tiresome habit of omitting altogether a passage in the translation, or, worse still, of rendering in their flowery manner a sentence, which, for propriety's sake, had been cut from the school edition. Kellyites were always being caught for construing more rather than less than their set share.
Division work was nearly over and trials were about to begin. Denis, Robin, and Peter had nothing to fear, as they had taken the School Certificate and were excused trials. Next half they would be able to specialise and all three had chosen history.
" Ah, gentlemen, ah. Offal bawer, Manley," said Denis.
" If we're only up to Raven," said Robin. " But we may be up to Fatty. I've got no use for Fatty."
" I like him," said Denis. " Besides the poor brute is always ill. He spews after every meal, so I heard. I don't wonder he's bad tempered."
The last hour with Hunter was peaceful. No one ragged him and a certain amount of work was done. Denis put his back into an unseen construe and Shivers became excited.
" Good, Bailey. That's more like construe. That's enough. Next." But Shivers's enthusiasm soon cooled. Some boys could, and others simply could not, and however much they tried, it was difficult to sustain interest in the sense of a piece of Latin, when every other word was a stumbling block."
On the last Sunday of the half, Denis went to tea with Shivers and stayed till chapel.
