Martin and Leora are courted by "Nice Society" in Nautilus. Dr. Irving Watters, formerly of Digamma  Pi, is now a leading physician, and he and his wife, the near-wealthy daughter of the manufacturer of  Daisy Manure Spreader, undertake to initiate Martin and Leora into the social life of the community.  Mrs. Watters firmly but politely tries to correct the "barbarism of the Arrowsmiths" by rebuking  Martin's language, Leora's smoking, and both their bridge games. Watters is still as enthusiastic but  dull as he had been as a student. Martin's first lecture is received with "most enthusiastic applause." His only critic is Leora, who is  keen-sighted enough to realize that he may have his head turned by too much attention. They come  near quarreling on the subject and on that of Orchid Pickerbaugh. Leora admits, however, that her  Sandy has to stumble every so often and that he learns from his mistakes.
