CHAPTER XXI

" Oh, yes. It doesn't matter particularly, if I've failed. But I rather want a bike this holidays. It's impossible to get about without one. I shall get an A.J.S., I think."
" What happens if you don't get a scholarship ?" said Peter. Denis took a pull at his cider. " Another Bridge roll, please, Mr. Hendren. Nothing, I suppose. I shall just go up to Gloucester as a commoner. My father got a scholarship himself; so naturally wants me to do the same. It's a damned sweat, of course."
" Lucky I haven't got to get a scholarship," said Oliver. " A fat chance I should have of going up to Cambridge."
" Same here," said Peter. " Scholarships are nearly always won by tugs, aren't they ?" The seventy tugs, or collegers were looked down on by the rest of the school.

" Pity Feathers wasn't there."
" I had nearly a bottle of port as it was, and Atkinson from Raven's was very squiffy on a couple of glasses."
" Yes, there's something to be said for going up," said Oliver. They finished their glasses and went out. At the corner of Keats Lane Denis left them to say good-bye to Llewellyn. He walked slowly down the street with his hands in his pockets. The half had gone so quickly that he could not believe he would be at Anglersmead next week. The winter half usually dragged. But being in the library made a difference ; and history specialists had a pretty good time on the whole. Denis really enjoyed writing essays and sitting in Raven's grand, untidy study, while he read them.
" Not bad," Raven had said. " You want to get your facts together first ; arrange the points against at the beginning, then smash them with the points in favour. You should take more trouble about your style and write better. b + or, perhaps, a-." Wandering back in the dark along Judy's Passage, Denis had a comfortable impression that the world was all right.
