Broad Paddle, Not Hickory, Recommended for Paddling
Lorain, O. (UP) -- School children here will be taught their "reading and writing and 'rithmetic" to the tune of a broad paddle instead of the traditional hickory stick.
That's the decision of a 100-page manual of regulations
adopted by the Lorain school board.
Student pranksters no longer need wonder where to anticipate
one of teacher's wild swings. The manual says punishment shall be
administered by "striking the pupil across the buttocks with
a broad paddle ... and in no other manner."
