I would like to know if its lawful for a school teacher to hit a child with a Barber strop. I m trying to decide whether to take it out in a warrant or blood. Anonymous woman. A the Law allows a teacher reasonable Force to maintain discipline to interpret what is reasonable one would have to know in each Case what the child was doing and How much Force was applied which could Range All the Way from a tap on the hand or rear to flogging him like a Galley slave. We Are personally against Corporal punishment As it humiliates a child and emitters him and the teacher a and spreads to the parents who want to retaliate. On the other hand if someone came at us kicking and clawing we d probably Settle for anything Handy to fend off the attack. Try to simmer Down until you get the whole Story from the teacher and some classmates. Children do have a propensity to exaggerate Don t we All. If you still fee More Force was applied than the circumstances warranted go to the principal and superintendent before resorting to the courts. Come to think of it.

The soviets purchased a full 25 per cent of the american wheat crop approximately 440 million bushels at that time they paid is 65 a Bushel since then the Price has climbed to about $5 and now hovers around 84 75 the soviets while not yet forecasting the year s total Harvest. Are expected by Western experts to reap about 200 million tons of Grain. This might be Short of the 1974 target of 205 6 million tons but is still practically certain to be the second largest crop in soviet history after the 1973 crop of 222 5 million tons.
