Boy being caned says 'Hurry up!'

CANED fifteen times by eight different masters at Avondale Park Boys' School, Notting Dale, W., a thirteen-year-old schoolboy became tired of it, and at West London yesterday summoned one of the masters for beating him.

He was Stanley Hooper, and in the witness-box he admitted that on the third stroke he said to the master -- George Victor Barrett -- "Hurry up and finish it."

The magistrate dismissed the summons, remarking: "Obviously this boy deserved reasonable chastisement, and I am sorry to hear it does not seem to have done him any good. He has been very truthful and frank in the witness-box."
