Paddle Abolished

Unruly Youngsters Punished in That Mode at McKeesport.

The committee on discipline and morals of the board of school directors of McKeesport Wednesday night adopted a resolution to abolish the use of the "paddle." The paddle is about three feet long and is used in place of a rattan to punish unruly pupils. Richard Farmer, father of John Farmer, a pupil, charged Prof. Foster with cruelly beating his son. The board heard the testimony and reserved its decision until next Monday night.
