CHAPTER XVIII

and with enthusiasm. "I'll come round in a moment," Robin called after him. The captain of the house might wander into other boys' rooms after prayers for a friendly chat or a pijaw to a lower boy. Denis walked more slowly up the second flight. Lower boys scuttled from his path. Already he had a dignity in the house. Good night, Peter." He rapped on his door and strolled along to his room.
" A lovely morning, sir," said the boy's maid. " Quite like summer, still." Denis got up and looked out. The elms were a little more yellow, than when he had left them for Tidworth Park, and leaves were floating down from the limes by college chapel. But as the boys' maid had said, it was just like summer still at Eton.
Football, however, was the game. The school stores were full of bright yellow bouncing balls and a man was blowing up bladders in the background. Footballs were soon on the house slab with "Viscount Ockley " or "The Hon. A. Warburton " on the label. Two lower boys, with footballs under their arms, went out of the house on their way to a first kick-about. There were neat creases in their grey flannel knickerbockers. The blue of their scug caps was deep and fresh and the stiff peaks had not yet been folded and crushed to a comfortable flatness in their pockets. Gane's, the bootmakers, was full of boys, who stretched their feet for measurement, or sat about and watched their friends. Fags flung down their masters' football boots to be re-soled and barred, while a small boy noted the names on labels.

" Times next week, you slacker," said Beckett with a smile.
" Rather," said Denis. Every winter half he had regularly marked his Xs and -s on the times list, a X for football, a - for fives, squash rackets or a run. Four Xs or three Xs and two -s were the compulsory minimum each week. Denis had only once been caught marking up a time he
