Corporal Punishment in Schools.
The question of corporal punishment in schools has been much discussed lately in Germany and Switzerland, and the Canton Berne has come to a decision in the matter. The "Ethical World" considers the new law a compromise between the flagellants and anti-flagellants. It prescribes the use of the cane for "grave faults," such as "indicated moral perversion"; repeated lying is given as an instance and it is expressly forbidden to punish for want of application. Girls are not to be punished physically at all.
