What are the rules that the boys agree to follow while they are on the island?
He reminds the boys of some rules: (1) (as you might have guessed) KEEP THE SIGNAL FIRE GOING, (2) don’t build any other fires, and (3) do their toilet business by the rocks near the bathing pool instead of all over the island, as they have been doing (the boys sn***** and laugh at this last item).
What was the one rule the boys made for the island?
