Gonch is late acquiring old folders from a skip for resale. Calley is heavily into fortune telling, including palm reading but Jane is skeptical. Can Calley read a palm when it's a photocopy of an unknown person? Jane asks Hollo to show her palm print to Calley for divination. Mr. Smart's squash racquets go missing, and the public phone box has been raided. The staff go to see Mrs. McClusky about the nuisance and security risk of walking between the two buildings, but afterwards the teachers squabble about their personal grievances. Calley and Ronnie catch Gonch and Hollo in the act of acquiring more goodies from the skip, and Ronnie threatens to reveal Gonch's source to the general public. In return for keeping stum, Hollo reveals who's the palm print is. Calley gives an unflattering analysis of Jane's hand-print, without giving a name, and Jane storms off in a fury.
