CHAPTER XVII

the dancing floor had become a vast flypaper. Mrs. Flightwood and her two daughters, who had organised the dance, scattered a tin of French chalk on the parquet and ran backwards and forwards with floor mats and rugs. Thanks to their efforts, the surface resembled first a skating rink, then the sawdust floor of a public bar, and finally returned to its flypaper condition.
Denis introduced Karl to Maureen. " Have you heard what happened to Dick Lett ?" she said.
" What ? "
" It's frightfully funny, though Dick doesn't think so. You know those harbours along the shore ?"
" Basins," said Denis.
" Dick was coming along, chatting to May Eversley, when he suddenly disappeared. May asked some question and there was no answer."
" I looked all round," said May Eversley, " and at last a feeble voice came from below and called 'May, help me out' ; and there was Dick struggling in the mud up to his tummy."
" A couple of fishermen pulled him out," said Maureen, " and one of his shoes was left behind. Poor old Dick, and I had number three booked for him."
" Look out you don't follow his example, Karl," said Denis, " when you go for a walk between dances."
" I never leave the ballroom," said Karl. " I sit on a chair and make talk to my partner."
Mrs. Bailey had secured a ringside seat by the wall. She had been a keen dancer in her day and liked to follow her children's feet in and out of the crowd. If Denis or Joan danced more than once with the same partner, she made a mental note for the future. With Lady Hindley on her left and Mrs. Roxburgh on her right she felt comfortably at home, till she remembered that Lady Hindley did not know Mrs. Roxburgh. It had been, so she believed, a mere confusion as to the right to call in the first place. Both ladies had settled in the neighbourhood some fifteen years ago ; but unfortunately within the same week, and neither had
