the Los Angeles public schools, has
been urged by his friends to become a
candidate for election to the office of
Bupreme president of the Fraternal

proposition, and If assured that it
would be the best thing for the order,
might accept, although he was wedded
to the children and work of the pub

Foshay's salary would be raised from

Holland Mich., Appears at Master's
House in Chicago
Special to Tlio Herald.
CHICAGO, Dec. 25.— Footsore and
weary, but decidedly "game," Spot, a
bulldog owned by Fred Rehberg, 88
North Forty-eighth avenue, returned
yesterday after having been lost on a
hunting trip near Holland, Mich., a
week ngo.
Rehbergf had given up hopes of re
covering the dog, when Spot walked
Into the yard and stretched Itself on
the mat by the kitchen door. The ani
mal Is fourteen yeara old and showed
In Its general unkemptness and a Blight
limp that Its trip of 165 miles had
proved no easy matter.
The hunting trip In Michigan had
been completed and the party was on
the point of returning home by boat,
when Spot slipped ltd collar and dis
appeared, possibly In quest of 'more
woodchucks and rabbits. Nothing fur
ther was seen of it until its return.
TICKET SPECULATION MAY GO
Right of Theater Managers to Sup.
press the Evil Upheld by New
York Courts
Special to Tho Herald.
NEW YORK. Dec. 23.-The right of a
manager to refuse tickets sold by a
Bldewalk speculator was upheld . today
| by the court of appeals ut Albany. The
action was brought by William 11. Col
lister, a ticket speculator, against Al.
lliiyman and othern, composing the firm
of Al. Haymun & Co., who conduct the
Knickerbocker theater In New York.
Colllster sought to recover $4000 which
he alleged he lost through the action of
the defendants in preventing him from
carrying on his business in front of the
theater. The deiendants averred that
they posted notices warning patrons
against buying tickets from speculators
and printed such notices on tickets. The
opinion in which tha whole court con
lurs holds that tha proprietors of a
theater have a right to refuse tickets
obtained through a speculator in cases
where they gave such warning.

"CORPORAL PUNISHMENT
IS GOOD FOR GIRLS"
CALIFORNIA OFFICIAL | STUDIES
EASTERN SCHOOLS
Tell* of Woman in . Adrian, Mich.,
Institution Who Turns Refractory
Maids Over Her -Knee and
Applies Slipper Sole . i» i a :•
A. J. Pillsbury, a member of the Cali
fornia state bourd of examiners, has
been making a study of eastern pena.l
Institutions and has written v letter
to officers in Los Angelen referring to
the investigation recently made at
Whittler. ■"•■' .". I;.-: h .■-..■ i--- -\
Mr. Pillsbury discusses corporal pun
ishment tt-nd suya that in New York
this mode of chastisement has been
abolished. In Michigan, however, h»
says one of the matrons occasionally
turns a refractory girl over her knee
and applies a slipper vigorously.
In conclusion Mr. . Pillsbury declares
corporal punishment la as good for glrla
as It is for boys. ' ;'.',;
Following is his letter:
"Apropos of the recent unfortunate |
occurrences at Whittler state school,
it may be protltable to consider the at
titude of well-ordered eastern Institu
tions toward the subject of the Intlic
tion of physical pain as. a remedial and
disciplinary measure. During the in
vestigations I have recently made In
eastern states I kept this issue con
stantly In mind. -,;.'•■< .'
"New York does not permit corporal
punishment In any of its reformatory
Institutions, but. the equivalent of it
has been attained through systems of
fatigue duty, bread and: water diet and
close confinement. An occasional chas- I
tisement would Inflict less physical In
jury and be the sooner, over. i.Massa
chusetts does not object to .the .occa
sional spoiling of a hickory rod on a
spare child if It cannot be made, to
mind In any other way. ■;•.,- 1 - # .'
"The highly capable and: efficient su
perintendent of the girts" reform school
at Adrian, Mich., occasionally, turns a
refractory girl across her knee and ap
plies the sole of a. rubber shoe with
beneficial effects. "i ' >' ; '\- •
"The almost Incomparable superin
tendent of the girls' reform school at
{ Geneva, 111./ uses a strong, room for
' a refractory pupil and if that does not
1 serve, puts her -In a box down In the
basement. This- is much : akin to a
steam bath appliance and leaves only
the head sticking out of the lid. It is
an adaptation of the ancient Idea of the
Blocks, and is not physically- preferable
to a (witching. ■
"The George Junior republic empow
ers the superintendent to administer
the switch in e»«*».not Covered by thti
law and where expedition is advisable.
It is believed that the law Is careful to
leave uncovered* certain classes of
cases best reached by the switch)
"It la probable that moral reforma
tion is never accomplished through the
Infliction of physical pain alone. It is

11. J. WOOLIACOTr. Distributor. 124-121) North JiDrina i>\. \ H
probably true thut divine grace, work-
Ing .through the sympathetic and lov
ing service of a fellow mortal, Is the
only adequate instrumentality for the
reformation of a deformed human char
acter. And yet the Infliction of physi
cal pain by chastisement may secure
obedience to the rules of an Institu
tion and place thoso thus reduced to
obedience on the high road toward
moral regeneration. It mny bo the oc
casion If not the cause of reformation
of character.
"The disciplinarian who knows noth
ing of tho' duties appertaining to his
ottlee, nothing of the psychology, pen
ology and nuinan nature, knows no way
of securing obedience to wholesome
regulations other than by the applica
tion of an overmastering physical force:
but the disciplinarian who has learned
his business and has some nptltude for
the' place he occupies will hold the in
fliction of physical pain in reserve for
cases in wiilch all other known meth
ods of securing obedience have failed.
Without obedience to rules no reform
atory Institution can accomplish any
good thing, and where such obedience
cannot be secured through diplomacy
it may sometimes be conquered through
war. In such cases the end will jus
tify the means.
"Corporal punishment Is as good for
girls as for boys, although less fre
quently required. I do not know any
well-ordered Institution where men
whip girls, nnd any institution not
headed by a woman capable of hand
ling the problem herself can hardly
runk aa well ordered."
