I don't remember whether the "old" was optional or obligatory. I never heard this term myself outside of the book, and I'm not sure whether this is simply because I spent my adoloscent years in the Pacific Northwest and didn't attend a New England boarding school, or whether it was a literary creation of J.D. Salinger's. Peter McGraw Linfield College McMinnville, OR
