Stanley takes a cold and quick shower. There is no hot water and each boy is allowed only four minutes under the water, which then turns off automatically. Stanley eats a disgusting dinner, and a camper asks him what he got in trouble for. Stanley tells him that he stole a pair of sneakers from the famous baseball player Clyde Sweet Feet Livingston. No one believes that Stanley has done that. When Stanley retires to his smelly cot he thinks back on the crime he didn't commit. The day Stanley was arrested, the school bully, Derrick Dunne, had thrown Stanley's notebook in the toilet in the bathroom. The teachers never believed that Derrick bullied Stanley because Stanley was much bigger than Derrick.
