Overview

The school's attitude can be summed up in three words. It was one vast, blank, astounded "Here, I say!"
Everybody was saying it, though not always in those words. When condensed, everybody's comment on the situation came to that.
There is something rather pathetic in the indignation of a school. It must always, or nearly always, expend itself in words, and in private at that. Even the consolation of getting on to platforms and shouting at itself is denied to it. A public school has no Hyde Park.
There is every probability-¬in fact, it is certain-¬that, but for one malcontent, the school's indignation would have been allowed to simmer down in the usual way, and finally become a mere vague memory.
The malcontent was Wyatt. He had been responsible for the starting of the matter, and he proceeded now to carry it on till it blazed up into the biggest thing of its kind ever known at Wrykyn-¬the Great Picnic.
