Why is Mr. McGuffy holding paper hankies at the school gate? Pogo's already at it, selling cheap pens, while Gripper has a new batch of first years to improve his cash-flow, and seems to fancy his chances with Clare Scott. Jonah, sporting his fake Rodney Bennett Badge already falls foul of the pompous new teacher, Mr. Smart. Roland's trying to stand up to Gripper, who rips his blazer. Roly's classmates are determined to do something about Gripper, and stand against him when he hits Pogo. Gripper is forced to relinquish his ill-gotten booty. Written by Geffers
