Doctor In The House (1946)

`Sorry to keep you waiting, old man,' he said cheerily, `I
was held up at a post-mortem. Have a seat.'
I sat down on a hard leather chair beside the desk.
`Now,' the Dean began. `Have you been to a public school ?'
'Yes'
`Your people can afford the fees and that sort of thing?' `I believe so.'
`You play rugby, I suppose?'
`Yes, sir.'
The Dean began to look interested.
`What position?' he asked.
`Wing threequarter.'
He drew a pad of paper towards him and pencilled fifteen dots on it in rugby formation.
`Threequarter . . .' he murmured to himself. `How old are you?' he asked sharply.
`Almost eighteen, sir.'
'Umm. First fifteen at school?'
`Oh yes, sir.'
The Dean traced lines through his dots, crossed others out, and rustled through a sheaf of typewritten papers beside him. He jerked back in his chair and inspected me closely all over.
`You're rather thin, aren't you,' he announced. `I suppose you've got the speed?'
`I've got cups for the hundred,' I told him eagerly.
`Well, you may shape well. Lucky you're a three. The hospital's full of forwards,' he added in disgust.
He frowned at his paper pad for a few seconds. His face suddenly lightened, and I saw he had come to a decision : my hands gripped the arms of the chair as I waited to receive it.

Rising, he shook me briskly by the hand and told me he had pleasure in admitting me to St Swithin's.
I wondered for some time afterwards how he had been able to discover from these questions that I had the attributes of a successffil doctor, but I later found out that even this brief interview was superfluous, as the Dean always took the advice of his old secretary and told applicants this man disliked the look of that there were no vacancies.
