Chapters 24 and 25 Summary

Saturday arrives in the camp and people are buzzing about a dance to be held tonight. Women wash their families' best clothes and give the young children baths in anticipation of this weekly social event. Many of the men in the camp are on edge because they have been warned that some outsiders plan to crash the dance to make trouble, which will necessitate the arrival of the local authorities, who will then shut down the camp. As the evening progresses, Tom and the other men spot the outsiders, who create a scene on the dance floor.
