Narrator Dave Sexton is the protagonist of "Split Cherry Tree." His father, Luster, makes a pistol-packing surprise visit to school; and Professor Herbert is the firm-handed teacher who quells the father's anger. Other minor characters include:

DAVE'S MOTHER, who seems level-headed but subservient to her domineering husband.

"Now, Luster," says Mom, "you jist stay away from there. Don't cause a lot o' trouble. You can be jailed fer a trick like that. You'll get th' Law atter you. You'll jist go down there and show off and plague your own boy Dave to death in front o' all th' scholars!

EIF CRABTREE, whose cherry tree is damaged by a group of boys on the field trip and demands payment for his loss.
