'Woodshed Walloping' Given To Four Boy Delinquents
PHILADELPHIA, March 24. -- An old-fashioned "woodshed walloping" was the remedy meted out today to two 14-year-old Philadelphia boys for taking liberties with a motor car which was not their own.
The duplicate sentences were executed by the respective fathers today with the aid of a razor strop and a leather belt. The Juvenile Court Probation Officer, who inspected the execution of the Court's sentence, declared it to be a "very neat job, and an effective one, I must admit."
KANSAS CITY, Kan., March 24. -- An old-fashioned spanking was the penalty imposed in Juvenile Court here today on two boys who had "played hookey." Judge Henry Meade himself used the "rod", which was a Congressional Record wrapped tightly in a paper covering.
"That's the first real use I ever found for a Congressional Record," the Judge commented.
