Biography: 

Three "town boys" appear as individuals in Chapter 4. This icon refers to the aggregate group of young men who do not go to the University but do have access to cars which make them desirable dates for Temple on "week nights," between the dances and other weekend social activities on the campus (29). Excluded at those times, these "boys" can only watch Temple from a (socio-economic) distance. For their part, the "men" who are "students in the University" look down upon the boys, with their "pomaded heads" and "upturned collars" (29).
