THE RAW MATERIALS

"Homesick, like?"
The wire-haired boy scowled. "No."
Two men were trying to play billiards with a sawndown cue and three odd balls on a table not much bigger than a tea-tray. The boy watched them. One of the players, a long, saturnine man, addressed the spot-ball with elaborate care, and miscued. I heard the woody scrape, and saw the ball roll slowly away. The saturnine man swore briefly and bitterly, handing the cue to the other player, who took it, held it, stared blankly at it, and then said: "Ah dinna wanna play na more."
" No more do I. Let's turn it up."
" Play draughts?"
" No."
Somebody else asked the company in general what was going to happen to them now.
A glum blond man who had been turning over the pages of a bound volume of Punch, 1893-4, said : "We get another medical examination. First of all we get our hair cut off. Then, if we're okay, we get injected."
" Injected what with?" asked the wire-haired boy. "Germs."
" Oh, blimey."
" Germs," said the glum man. "Your arm swells up like a thigh. You throb like a damn great aeroplane. Your head aches fit to bust. A scab comes. Then it drops off. Then there's a scar."
" What's that done for?"
" Because it's healthy."
" And what happens then?"
