As soon as Assibi left us and drove back to town, we took our scanty luggage and dispersed to our compounds. Of course, as newcomers Sorkumo and Debomo were not assigned to their compounds until after the roll was called. So we stayed together in front of compound five until the assembly drum was sounded. Then Sorkumo was assigned to compound two and Debomo to compound one. The Lawra boys, under whose prefectship I had suffered so badly and who had been made deputy captains in my first year, were now promoted to be compound captains. Gangman was appointed to compound one, Diedong Dombo to compound two and Yiriyele Baanye to compound three.
