   not, quite. The teacher hears the commotion, takes Ricardo
   to the school doctor, and covers for the boys with the
   administration. At home Ricardo's mother insists that they
   move him to a new school. In a private talk with his father
   Ricardo explains everything, says he deserved his

   father understands because he wasn't always rich, and makes
   up a story to calm his wife. Things go better at school
   among the boys, and after a few days Ricardo dismisses his
   chauffeur so he can play baseball in an alley. Since it's a
   dirty place Ricardo takes his shoes off, and Memín guards
   them. Some bigger boys come along and want to use the area

   not to tell his mother about the beating, and Ricardo
   agrees. Memín's mother sends him out for milk, and he sees

   has been arrested for murder, and sent to the house of
