Indirect statements & missing participles

Thus far in my Latin studies I've been entirely on my own. Sometimes I've had questions with no one to ask and wondered if the book just doesn't explain this or if I'm getting impatient, and the subject is discussed later in the book. :-) Anyway, I'm using Wheelock's, and I'm at chapter 25, and I have a couple questions.

ludus, -i, m.

In the usage I've seen and in my dictionary, ludus can mean both school and play. In LL, the kids in school are always in ludo, but from my dictionary, it seems I could also use the same phrase for kids "at play." Are these both commonly expressed with ludus?

Many thanks in advance,

Carmen Catulli 61

line 79 reads: "tardet ingenuus pudor." does anyone know why the subjunctive is used here? all the translations I have seen have translated it indicatively.

lines 134-136 read: "diceris male te a tuis/ unguentate glabris marite/ abstinere, sed abstine." The best translation I can come up with is "perfumed married man, you are said that you illy abstain from your bald young slaves, but abstain." I know this does not make much sense, but I ...
