400 boys caned over haircuts

By Our Johannesburg Correspondent

The headmaster of Bryanston High School near Johannesburg yesterday caned 400 of the 452 boys at his school for not having regulation short-back-and-sides haircuts. One senior pupil said it was "discipline gone daft".

They were paraded through Mr John Vivers' study and ordered to bend over after he had ordered a snap inspection. He threatened to expel those who objected to punishment.
