Why does Aunt Alexandra move in? She especially wants to provide feminine influence for Scout, wants to become a mother figure for children, she would watch the kids during the summer

How does Jem break the “remaining code of childhood”? He tells Atticus about Dill, Dill didn’t want anybody to know he’d run away from his parents
Why did Dill run away from his parents? He felt he was a burden who hadn’t paid enough attention to him because it wasn’t that they didn’t love him but he though it was a “here’s-a-toy-go-play-with-it” type of relationship
Why did the first group of men come to see Atticus? They were his friends and they came to discuss the case of Tom and were reviewing Tom’s sending to jail
Why did the second group of men come to see Atticus? They wanted to get a look at Tom Robinson while he had been sleeping and possibly hurt him, they were threatening and intimidating him into not representing Tom anymore
Why isn’t Heck Tate there? He was apparently called on a snipe hunt and was deep into the woods by now
