Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 19, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Tax relief bill dislodged See story on page 2 Map guideline for Americas The right to spank An issue in some schools By RICHARD SPONG Editorial Rtsearch Bureau WASHINGTON You can touch me Lay a hand on me and youll lose your job This is the kind of pupil at titude from which teachers ii the District of Columbia schoo system seek relief The proposa to end a longstanding ban on corporal punishment in Wash ingtons public schools is one of a series made by District Schoo Superintendent Carl F Hansen as the indirect result of a riot after a high school footbal game last Thanksgiving Day Dr Haruen has tried to make it quite clear what he is ad vocating He does not wide use of whipping but he wants the prohibition lifted this sword of Damocles The BC Education A s s o c i ation 3800 of 4 500 teachers endorsed the superintendents recommenda tion and stated Teachers are not desirous of employing cor porar punishment but they do desire to be relieved of the ef fect of the rule against it The present ban dates back to March 20 1918 when the board of education wrote a flat rule prohibiting corporal punish ment and rescinded a rule which enjoined on teachers the avoidance of corporal punish ment as far as may be with a due regard to obedience on the part of the pupils Corporal punishment is cur rently an issue in Maryland Two teachers at a church school in Hagerstown were convicted and fined each and ordered to pay medical expenses for an assault on a student This re sulted in 20 days in a In another Hagerstown case a day earlier a magistrate had acquitted a high school teacher of assault charges arising from punishment The right of the teacher to maintain discipline in the classroom is the same as the right of a parent to main tain discipline in the home the magistrate ruled But he then asked the state attorney general to determine whether the courts should enforce a hoard of education regulation Under no c i r c u m stances shall a teacher inflict cor poral punishment on a pupil the rule reads Cases which seem to require corporal punish ment shall be referred to the principal who may administer it as a last resort Only state New Jersey flatly forbids corporal punish ment in public schools Four states Virginia Vermont Florida and Montana spe cifically allow it In Florida the teacher or principal in charge must be consulted first Penn sylvania Oklahoma and West Virginia reaffirm the common law principle of placing the teacher in loco parentis in the position of parents in respect to school discipline without mentioning corporal punish ment A study made for the National Education Association in 1959 showed that only 60 cases of assault and battery had been brought against American teach ers in the preceding 125 years Many teachers of course spare the rod to avoid court action administrative discipline or just plain unpleasantness The problem of discipline in Washington schools is partly the result of racial tensions per cent of the school population is Negro These tensions are in evitably going to make dis cipline trouble in many other cities in the East and Middle West where population migra tions are upsetting long ac cepted school population balances SAN JOSE Costa Rica ident Kennedy set out Tuesday to translate a personal triumph into meaningful policy guidelines acceptable to the United States and the leaders of six Latin American nations Kennedy who received a wildly enthusiastic welcome Monday from nearly 200000 Costa Ricans conducted

col leagues at the opening conference session We will build a wall around a wail of mor tar or brick or barbed wire but a wall of dedicated men deter mined to protect their own free dom and

Once aloft the econ omy could be swept into the 1970s on the updraft of an unprecedent ed wave of family formation So says Walter F Heller chair man of the Presidents Council of Economic Advisers who recently observed that up to now this dec ade could be called the slightly soggy 60s Ever since the baby binge that followed World War II experts have been predicting a business boom in the 1960s The baby crop vould mature marry and set off will Soggy 60s turn into widening waves of demand by an interviewer apparently will de But he disagrees emphatically crating enough ctemnnd to nut TWA thf 1 u j nnldmg houses choosing farm vclop three or four years from with the idea that the thoo 1 E that a major mdmtrjshould widening waves of demand by building houses choosing furni ture buying cars and television sets and starting its own crop of babies Mow the seers are less certain Too many newcomers to the labor market are finding the no vacan cy sign up The real tidal wave of young jobhunters hasnt yet ar rived If the oncoming millions dont find employment the soaring 60s could turn out to be the slumping 60s with everquickening automa tion diminishing the job opportuni ties for a swiftly growing labor force Dr Heller is optimistic The big push of family formation he told an interviewer apparently will de velop three or four years from now and it should be an economic blessing rather than a burden Originally most those who study population trends and their that the economic impact of family forma tion would be felt by 1964 or 1965 Today there is less agreement on the timing but the experts still believe that the stork brings pros perity Some predict the lift will be de layed until the threshold of the 70s Chairman Heller favors a guess of 1966 or which time he believes the economy should already be on the rise disagrees emphatically idea that the country can relax secure in the knowledge that a demographic timebomb is ticking away biding its hour to blast away the effects of years of underemployment An era of unprecedented eco nomic expansion is possible ac cording to Heller but it wilt not be bestowed on Americans solely by the bounty of providence and procreation By 1970 onethird ofthe labor force will consist of young people who have entered it since 1960 Heller said That tremendous inpotiring of labor could help or hurt depend ing on the policy we follow We face the necessity of gen crating enough demand to put these young millions to work The job generating device on which the White House has pinned its hopes is a net worth of tnx reduction which Heller estimates will increase consumer and business demand by three or four times that much If favorable credit and other policies accompany the tax stimu lus and if no unforeseen calami ties happen along the country could attain substantially full em ployment by 196S he has suggest ed Quite close behind will come the fresh wave of sustained con sumer demand generated by the spending and borrowing of the youngmarricds What if things go wrong Sup hat a major industry should take a the com mercial building boom to use an unlikely but conceivable example should collapse suddenly The White House economist con ceded that a serious setback in any important segment of the economy would be a serious mat ter It would tend to cut the stimulative effect of tax and make it harder to get tha 60s airborne Thit is a risk which would run in any ease ami one which would be lessened by tax reduc tion There can be no guarantee said Dr Heller that the coming massive infusion of youthful brains skill and energy vill utilized as it should be
