CHAPTER XX

" Rouge," called the captain of Cherry's in a matter-offact way, as if he had been giving rouges all the afternoon. The score was five one against Wren's. The rouge was converted, which made it five two.
" Did you win to-day ?" said Beckett from his bath.
" No," said Denis. " We had a good game, but we just lost. Cherry's are a dirty side to play against. They refused to give anything."
" Bad luck," said Beckett. Their opponents never would give anything, so it seemed. It was the second sine's only failing.
The house side had been doing well. They had won all but one of their friendly matches and got through first ties of the house cup by the big margin of seventeen to three. Swinley had been given his house colours and had acquired an additional respect in the house. Beckett played regularly for the school and was considered a certainty for his Field. Colours were only given on the ground if the match was won or drawn. If defeated, the keeper of the Field paid a call in the evening and presented the cap. A few Saturdays later Eton beat a strong visiting side of Old Etonians by three to one, and a double line of boys formed up for the two teams. The keeper of the Field walked slowly to his peg on the wall, chatting to the rival captain. The others followed through the lane, muddy and steaming, and the two lines closed in a surging semi-circle. The players took down their scarves and sweaters and put on their caps. The crowd held their breath. Then a pale blue and scarlet cap rose for a moment above the heads. Beckett put it on and the crowd clapped wildly and followed the players from the field. The keeper walked bareheaded. Beckett, arm in arm, wore the faded blue and scarlet, the most coveted cap in Eton.
" Congratulations," said the library, when Beckett came in.
" Thanks. I didn't expect it." He called a boy. " I say, Shalfont, take this cap round to the keeper of the Field with my compliments." The fag rushed upstairs to show off the cap before starting, and a group of lower boys pressed
