CHAPTER XXI

bent down and bawled " Wreeeen's " in his ear. The small boy moved away. "Wreeeen's" was being drowned in the roar of " Raveeeeeen's." Raven's were being hard pressed but Wren's was also the least popular of the two houses. The umpire blew his whistle. An appeal for " sneaking " -the Eton equivalent of " off-side "-had been upheld. Wren, stamping round the ground, with a faded rowing cap on his head, stopped short and shaded his eyes. The house trooped back for the free kick against them. Williams took the kick. It soared high in the wind, then turned sharply away. Robin had it. " Back me up, bully," he called. He dribbled ; dodged through Raven's loose, and before "long" could recover his position, sent in a low shot. Goal did not wait to steady himself, and took a flying kick. The ball came bouncing over the frosty turf. Goal heard a far away roar, pierced by a whistle. Wren's led, three to nil.
Denis and Peter got down from their platform and hurried round the ground. The pace of the game had slowed down. Wren's pressed again after the kick-off, but Raven's defence was surer now. " Let's stay in the corner here on the chance of a rouge," said Denis.
" And be ticked off by an officious pop."
" No, we're all right here." They elbowed their way to the front and struck up a sing-song " Wreeeen's," whenever the Raven crowd started cheering. The shouting rose and fell more regularly now, and scarcely followed the fortunes of the game. The supporters of each house had massed themselves in groups, and, without conscious leadership, cheered in perfect unison. Raven's were kicking the ball out in their efforts to keep out Wren's. A lower boy in a top-hat and Eton jacket ran to retrieve a ball a good fifty yards behind the crowd. Afraid of miskicking, he carried the ball under his arm and threw it on to the field. Still the cheering rose and fell till the ball was put back into the bully.
Masters walked round the ground or stood in small groups on the line. Most of the younger beaks were in change coats
