  • Jennings and Darbishire in their third term at Linbury Court School, have succeeded in getting permission for the boys to occupy their leisure time in hut building in a remote and rather marshy part of the school grounds. Admittedly the "sorry looking shanties of twig and bull-rush" which result from this supposedly constructive form of out-of-school activity are not up to the Headmaster's expectations, but the pride of the hut-dwellers themselves is unbounded.
  • The term runs its course: its tranquility disturbed by minor or major upsets of a sort which commonly befalls them - from the misadventure with Bromo's goldfish, Elmer, to the disaster with the Head's cucumber frame.
