When Jack, comes across pig droppings and brings the boys onto the hunt, and Ralph at that point throws his spear and grazes the pig. Yet in the end the pig gets away. The boys start to dance and chant…
At the beginning of chapter seven, Ralph feels dirty. He wants to cut his hair and fingernails, wash his clothes, brush his teeth, and get a bath. This shows that he still has some decorum left, unlike most of the other boys. However, with the other boys being dirty as well, he realizes that these conditions are normal now, and he does not mind.
