careless about it. 

 

3. Goes out for everything from a sense of duty. 

 

4. Gets to college and has a problematical future. Feels lost 

without his circle, and always says that school days were 

happiest, after all. Goes back to school and makes speeches 

about what St. Regis's boys are doing. 

 

5. Hair not slicked. 

 

Amory had decided definitely on Princeton, even though he would be the 

only boy entering that year from St. Regis'. Yale had a romance and 

glamour from the tales of Minneapolis, and St. Regis' men who had been 

"tapped for Skull and Bones," but Princeton drew him most, with 

its atmosphere of bright colors and its alluring reputation as the 

pleasantest country club in America. Dwarfed by the menacing college 

exams, Amory's school days drifted into the past. Years afterward, when 

he went back to St. Regis', he seemed to have forgotten the successes 

of sixth-form year, and to be able to picture himself only as the 

unadjustable boy who had hurried down corridors, jeered at by his rabid 

contemporaries mad with common sense.
