and iambics to-day. I agree with the opener. That's all I have to say." He sat down suddenly.
" Mr. Bailey."
" I agree with Lord Ockley," said Denis. " I don't think I have anything to add. All the arguments I had so carefully thought out, seem to have been used by other gentlemen. I think we ought to read more history, and, in fact, do more history altogether." He sat down again. The last few speakers added little to the general knowledge, but Robin noted down everything they said. Swinley was collecting the points. The members of the debate stared curiously about the room. Some had only visited the library for the purpose of bending over a wooden chair. Now they tried to identify it. Above the gramophone hung the new selection of house canes. A large wooden clock on the mantelpiece showed twenty-five minutes past ten.
" Has anyone else got anything they would like to add ?" said Swinley. The debate looked at each other.
Beckett rose. " I should like to ask the president what exactly m'tutor meant. I didn't quite get it."
" Thank you, Mr. Beckett. I will allude to m'tutor's remarks in a moment. Stop playing with that football, Warburton. I've cautioned you already. You had better give me half a crown by to-morrow night."

Featherstone, you can't vote for both sides."
" Oh, can't I? Sorry." Swinley looked at Denis. " Are you behind the chair ? "
" Yes. I've decided that all education is wrong."
