- From the time when Bunter, snooping around for tuck in the study of Gerald Loder, the unpopular prefect, came across his secret stash of cigarettes, Loder was in a lot of trouble and his efforts to take it out on Bunter and his friends had a habit of recoiling.
- Loder's bitterness and yearning for revenge coupled with his desire for a place in the Greyfriars first Eleven resulted in a scheme that made even his hireliong, the dingy bookie, Joey Banks uneasy. When Bunter heard the plot no one would believe his story and he was put to a great deal of trouble and hard-thinking to convince his hearers that for once he was telling the truth.
