PART ONE
THE RAW MATERIALS

IT was a big, dim, grim, high, wide, unhandsome room, smelling unpleasantly of too much cleanliness. Discipline has an odour of its own-a smell of scrubbing-soap and floor-polish mixed with just a little too much fresh air. You sniff it in prisons, workhouses, and other places where men abandon hope : the smell of organised scouring; the smell to end smells.
Men were talking; not loud. A beardless boy with a pink face and a queer mop of hair like a copper-wire pot-scourer had been smoking a cigarette. He was holding the,butt of it between finger and thumb, looking anxiously from side to side. A crisis was approaching : soon, he wouldn't be able to hold it; but how could he dare to throw it down and put his foot on it? A large plump man with a deep, round voice said : "Chuck it out t' winder, lad." The wire-haired boy said: "Ah, but say there's a rule agin it ..." He pinched out the glow, rolled the remaining crumbs of tobacco into a little pill which he poised in his hand like some undisposable, incriminating mass. At last he put it into the huge cold stove, slammed the door, and walked hastily to the other side of the room.
" Scared, lad?" asked the plump man, and the wirehaired boy replied: "What, seared? Who, me? Me scared? Not me."
