CHAPTER XXI

safe enough. He put away his watch, and as he looked up, a harmless movement by the side line resulted in a long dribble by one of Raven's. Robin lost his head, barged into him thirty yards from the goal line and the boy kicked. Far out over the side line. Robin tore after to touch it down ; but the other boy was faster. He barged Robin off his course and by the time he reached the ball, it was behind the continuation ofthe goal line. " How's that ?" He smacked the ball in triumph. After a short pause came the whistle. Three to two, and if Raven's forced the rouge, the score would be three all and extra time would have to be played.
" Hurry up ; get back. Form up," said Beckett. The opposing ram were already waiting. Wren's could not be accused of dawdling to gain time. In a few seconds the ram was in and another struggle begun in goal mouth. This time it was short. The ball came out behind, and Oliver gave it a tremendous boot, which sent it over the side line forty yards up the field.
In the few minutes left, Raven's went all out to score. Slicks and curses flew about the bully. Sanders made two long shots at goal which Oliver allowed to bounce harmlessly over the line, and the defence held. Raven stood alone, a few beaks edging near with condolences. Wren's classical allusions grew more and more philosophic. The poets had taught him restraint in the hour of victory as well as resignation in defeat. A large part of the crowd had drifted away to form a lane by the wall. Denis and Peter talked quietly and the umpire's whistle went for the last time. The crowd jumped off the platform and the cars and motor cycles, which had halted on the Slough Road to watch the match, roared and spluttered and streamed away in clouds of blue smoke.
In Wren's passages lower boys chattered in high voices and tore up and down on errands. Steam poured from the bathroom. Warburton in a brown flannel dressing-gown limped from a shower and hobbled along to the dame's sitting-room. Spencer-Mace and Holmes-Norton were reading books in their rooms. Denis pushed open the door of
