Fritz grew impatient. He did not like to keep his visitor waiting. As he paced up and down there was a flurry of excitement at the door: a message had been delivered. Fritz Schumacher was to come at once to the Rhodes Scholarship Selection Board; the committee was waiting. Without stopping to change out of his knickerbockers into formal dress, Fritz left his friend to Edith and hurried to the Berliner Schloss where a dozen other candidates were already assembled.
