Biography: 

On board the third and last train Horace takes on his way to Oxford are two "young men in collegiate clothes with small cryptic badges on their shirts and vests (168). One is unnamed, but he calls the other one "Shack," presumably a nickname derived from the confectionery near the college campus (169). "Shack" whistles a "broken dance rhythm" that the narrator calls "meaningless, vertiginous" (169-70).
