This year ditchleaping was resumed and a party consisting of TBs and QSs proceeded to the Red House on the day preceding the 1st of March, in consequence of the order given out by the Head-Master Liddell two years ago that no ditch leaping was in future to be allowed. I cannot agree with some of the former Head TBs who characterised it as a “beastly” and “absurd” practice*, since I think that if unattended with that “beastly” practice of getting drunk, no one could possibly find fault with it.
