There will be a public spanking exhibition in Parkview, a suburb of Newark, N.J, in a day or two or else several school children will be arrested on a charge of breaking and entering the school building.

They were caught Tuesday in the act of wrecking the kindergarten department of the school. Books and maps were torn, ink spilled and desks overturned. Four of the youngsters were captured. School Commissioner John J. Quinn decided that the time had come to give Parkview a lesson. He has therefore served notice on the parents of the guilty children that they must bring their offspring before the school board and administer before the public assembled as severe a spanking as the offense demands.
